    # Pets often have repeat “accidents” because they’re drawn by the odor. This can be discouraged by the professional application of a stain-resistant compatible deodorizer.
    * These substances can affect or damage the actual color of the carpet. While you may try to remove the stain as described here, we recommend consulting a professional carpet cleaner.
    ** Some fungicides, insecticides, and pesticides may harm carpet stain resistance. For information, call 1-800-438-7668.

    most of those contain disperse dyes or dyes other than acid dyes. Stain resistant carpet is resistant to acid dyes found in most house hold foods. also, once the acid dye resistors wear off they are obviously ineffective. like carpet protector. not all protectors reapply acid dye resistors. i use maxim which does.
