Nice!View attachment 44721 View attachment 44722 View attachment 44723 View attachment 44724 View attachment 44725 the reason i ask is because sometimes hitting it with just a prespray designed for that specific fiber type is enough. These are before and afters of a nasty mat with stains I thought would need spotters. I tested with just a stronger dose of olefin prespray and aggitation and it cleaned up.
Red...how do you use SM...just spray and pray? Do you just scrub it in? ThanksI was pretty certain that steamer and a oxidixer like StainMagic are a no no. I have certainly removed color doing the same. Heat(steam) works well on the reducer like Red1 or Red Zone Ready
Im no expert with StainMagic. I did take a class at my local supplier this morning though and CTI was the presenter and it was specifically about their stain line.
When i have used it and the way they demonstrate it is to mix, and either pour lightly or spray on the stain. Minor agitation with like a bone scrapper or equivalent. Blot or extract out and repeat if necessary. They specifically mentioned no heat for this as well as other oxidixers as it causes color loss.
Also, you mentioned that was Creepy crawlers that caused the stain. Stain magic works best on organic / natural type stains more then something synthetic. I would have maybe tried a reducer first like Red1 or RedZone ready with a bit of heat to see it it helped remove the color
Betadine, coffee, cool aid! Check!
I hear ya...she was cool with the whole thing...she told me she used some stuff on it when the spill happened three years ago. ThanksSeriously though, at this point your best bet is a patch. Not especially hard to do on that type of carpet. Doesn't require a lot of tools which can all be bought locally. It's hard to say if you're at fault on this, because we don't know what happened before you attempted removal. Using Stain Magic with a steamer is risky. I might do it with extreme caution, checking the stain every 10 to 15 seconds. Have some citric acid solution at the ready if you're even going to attempt this. That is what their CSS solution is for. It stops the reaction dead in it's tracks. Nylon is even more risky, equal to wool imho. I think you're better off to allow dwell time to do it's work and to realize there is such a thing as a PERMANENT stain. You can't win em all. Voice of experience here. It is quite possilble someone used something else on the carpet already that could destabilize the dyes. I've seen where customers used things on carpets they weren't supposed to that destabilized the dyes. When I just simply presprayed, no stain removers used, the colors came out COMPLETELY! This was clearly their fault, not mine. I mean, you just don't use MEAN GREEN on a nylon carpet full strength and expect to get away with it!
Here is another one that I know for a fact destabilized the dyes in a fairly new polyester carpet. The customer had used it undiluted on their son's bedroom carpet. Again, just regular cleaning the color came out in every single spot she used it on. http://www.dollartree.com/household...ly-Awesome-Cleaner/500c501c502p8056/index.pro
Hope you can work this out. Maybe Chubby can help.
Never again...spray and pray only next time.
