Carpet stains – pretty much every house has them. There are countless numbers of sprays, brushes, and machines to help us address these persistent reminders of the dropped meatball or that spilled glass of juice. Some cleaners deliver more promises than stain removal, but Spot Shot actually does what it claims to do – quickly and easily removes stains – even mystery ones.
About Spot Shot
Oh gosh – where to begin when testing Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover? Should it be those brown dirt marks by the front door? Or maybe these mystery black spots that appeared sometime last year? Oh wait – what is that bright red spot? Who’s been eating Popsicles by the couch? I guess that spot is as good a stain as any.
Challenge: Bright red spot that looks suspiciously like melted red Popsicle.
Age of spot: I’m guessing between 3-5 days.
Step 1: Spray Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover onto the stain. The spray comes out fast and strong, so one good spritz is all it takes. Make sure not saturate the carpet.
Step 2: For older stains, let Spot Shot soak into the stain for about 60 seconds. Then use a clean dry cloth (or paper towel like I used) to carefully blot the area. Still see a stain? Repeat step 2 until the stain disappears.
After 2 rounds of Spot Shot, this is how my carpet looked. Not bad, eh?
After you’re finished with the stain removal process, blot the area with cool water and then blot dry. It really is SO easy – no scrubbing, soaking for hours, or anything. Just spray and blot.
Buoyed by my success with the first stain, I decided to tackle a stain that was decidedly harder. Those mystery black spots that appears on the carpet over a year ago. 4 dots of black that have resisted several carpet cleaners and scrubs already. I was amazed – Spot Shot actually cleared up those spots as well. I did take pictures, but they didn’t effectively capture the true stain removing power for that set of stains. But I’ll leave you with a final before/after picture of a black stain that was lurking by the sofa.
I was totally amazed at how well, and how quickly, Spot Shot was able to remove even super old stains on my carpet. Spot Shot is a serious Instant Carpet Stain Remover that actually attacks and removes tough carpet stains.
