    I'm out of upholstery cleaner and I was wondering of using my pre spray for carpet would work? The upholstery is a regular fabric. They said nothing fancy. Thanks!

    Shouldn't be an issue. Just make sure your running an acid rinse.

    I wouldn't use your inline sprayer. Pump spray it.

    From what I know, you should be careful with normal pre-sprays. They are meant to penetrate deep into fibers, while upholstery pre-sprays are meant to sit on the surface. I'm sure it can be done, but just like clean steps said, rinse and make sure it's all out. Do use a pump sprayer as well, and depending on the fiber, check your psi so you're not going into the padding.

    I think somebody told me grand slam was similar to grime release pro. If it is, I've used grime release on plenty of furniture. I usually just use a spray bottle to apply and lightly brush in. Lately I have been usually Oxy Encap Pro instead though. I like that it is a neutral PH and really brightens fabric bc of the peroxide. Cost a little more to use than grime release but worth it to me for the results.

    I recommend a neutral heavy duty prespray for furniture. We made one and it cleans virtually any fabric. Now if your cleaning micro fiber (polyester) throw anything including Grand Slam or Grime Release Pro (there both copies of Prochem Ultrapac) cause you ain't gonna hurt it.

    You can clean microfiber with a flame thrower. (y)

    Yes. It isn't worth the hassle to pay for the return shipping
