Racine Industries, which manufactures Host machines and Host Dry Carpet Cleaner ("microsponges") seems to be in trouble. A recent newsletter admitted to "RI’s bizarre cash crunch experience." They stopped manufacturing machines and other cleaning products. Currently, you can order 12# buckets of Regular & SJ and they hope to provide 30# buckets within a few months. Then, they will fulfill back-orders first.

Does anyone know more about what's going on with Racine Industries?
and
Any recommendations for a substitute for the Host Dry Carpet Cleaner ("microsponges")?

I used a Lindhaus product - Dry Carpet Cleaning Powder. It's no better than Host.

I don't have many Host guys in this area, but the ones I do have switched to Brush Pro's Dry Compound and report being very pleased with the results.
