Carpet cleaning in the snow over Christmas in Halifax


What is the best stain remover available over the counter for carpets and upholstery?

In my opinion, and through my 10 years of experience of being a carpet cleaner, by far the best general (over the counter) stain remover for day to day spillages in the home would be HG extra strong stain remover. 

The HG extra strong stain remover is able to remove wine, chocolate, lipstick, grease, fruit juice, shoe polish, chocolate sauce, and any protein based stains. As well as all these common stains and spillages that you may want to remove from your carpets, upholstery, rugs and curtains it can power through a lot more than what it tells you on the bottle. This product sits nicely under the sink in my kitchen at home, and its perfect to quickly extract them spots and stains that appear around the home.

Once you have applied the product, leave to work for a few minutes, then use an absorbent terrycloth towel to blot and extract the dirt away. 

A lot of people are tempted to buy other over the counter products such as 1001 stain remover, rug doctor stain remover, and vanish for their carpet stains, these other over the counter products are OK but not as effective and can't power through a wide range of stubborn stains like the HG stuff can, its a professional range of products they offer, Ive also used there grease away product too, that spray is amazing too. 

This stain remover has enhanced active oxygen, when you spray the oxygen helps to really break down the stains, releasing them from the fabric and working through breaking them down so that there easy to extract by blotting with paper towels or even better with an extraction machine. The stain remover is really effective, even though I carry a lot of specialist stain removers from the likes of prochem and world of clean, I carry one around in my spotting bag whilst I'm working throughout the week, it can be quite handy and can be really effective even with the most stubborn stains. The best thing about this product is that its safe to use on nearly all types of fabrics!  

Through extensive training, research and trial and error this product is by far the best general stain remover I have come across. I advise all my customers to purchase a bottle to see them through the year until I return to undertake a deep clean throughout the property. You will be more than well equipped with this super powerful bottle of genius.

You can purchase a bottle for you own home from the HG website You wont be disappointed. This universal cleaner really works well and can be a life saver! There are also some other stockiest based throughout the UK such as B and Q, Homebase and Clas Ohlson.
