*******i know I can do a google search, look at the store here on this forum, and even go on Jon Don... But i would like YOUR input

I currently work for a well known carpet cleaning franchise, but want to branch off in a nearby city to do my own thing.

I know my company's products very well, but will have to use different products.

What fabric safe chemicals do you recommend to mix into my solution, and to pre treat upholstery?

water based solvents?
alcohol based solvents?
peroxide product for water marking/ cellulose browning?
acid rinse?

Thank you

Are you only planning on doing upholstery?

Thank You! If I am using a portable, do you recommend using water in my unit only, or adding Fiber Rinse into my tank?
