    Spot Help Needed

    This carpet is for a friend of the family. I've done mostly commercial carpets thus far so my spotting skills are admittedly weak. Before and after pics below. I presprayed and added a citrus booster, scrubbed with 175 red pad, then the T-Rex, then wand. And you can see the results suck...
