I clearly made an accurate assessment when determining you're mental prowess.

To Quote The good Abbè Faria of Count of Monte Cristo. "Are you a simpleton!"

Lol thought it was apparent I wasn't attempting to win anything.

I realize you must need Coloring Pages and crayons!

I throw in my five, might as well my vt14 is getting old lol

1. Blood on white fabric of any type except wool. Trigger sprayer with 1 scoup of OSR and the hottest water you can get from customers tap, you can fill from truckmount but if its too hot youll get a volcano. Dont touch the stain at all no rubbing, tamping, etc just trigger spray aggressively with nozzle close to fabric. If it starts to move immediately extract with matrix all fiber rinse (acid) in one direction, dont rub back and forth with upholstery tool or the friction might set the stain. Heres an example of a couch we did recently

2. Very soapy spots or unusual looking traffic lanes from lots of residue, also laundry spills like possibly a container of tide was spilled on carpet. Mix 50/50 water and downy fabric softener in any type of sprayer and soak the area well. Turn off rinse and extract, the downy will kill all the foaming (much better than any industry specific defoamer we have used).. the soap will rinse out easily in just a few passes.

3. Old wax or very bad wax spill deep in carpet and has hardened. Pour chemspec POG and soak the wax really well (smells like bananas) at the beginning of the job and give it a good 1hr to dwell in and break up the wax. Crank the heat and melt it out, will take quite a few passes even at near 240 degrees

4. Bad water and spotting stains in micro-fiber (water rings). We see this on many micro fiber sofas. Natural Orange from hydra master mixed full strength and pre spray the sofa. Take hand buffer with micro fiber bonnet and polish the area really well working in the natural orange. Extract with acid rinse. Heres a pic

5. Finger print dust from a burglary, pretty rare one to come accross. Vacuum as much as possible which will still leave a blackish/blue stain. Grease eraser double strength with a couple oz of dissolve from kleenrite. pre spray and let dwell for a while (I have only ran into this 2x but success both times), dont rub or agitate, just extract high heat

6. One last one because a few people already did soapy spots and blood plus someone might run into this at some point. Asphalt tar tracked in from parking lot being repaved. Flex with citri-solve or grout master and 2-3oz of dissolve from kleenrite(this combo also works really well for printer ink). Pre spray and agitate then extract or just extract with rotary.

Our pre spray handles most all food/organic stains and we also use Fels when needed (bar is strapped to wands) but those were already listed in this contest many times

Well I'd say you're definitely in the close running for that wand. Just my opinion though. :) I knew I should be taking more pics of my stain removals. I've done some pretty impressive ones, but just remembering 5 and exactly what I did on each is a bit hard for me. :( Oh well, maybe next time I'll be more ready. I never win anything. I'm such a loser.

You using the B & D steamer to set the glue in the seam tape? Sounds like a good idea. I have 2 of those, but never thought of using it for repairs. I am not skilled in repairs. I've done a few, but still pretty slow at it. Did you free hand cut that? Looks too small to be a cookie cutter. I did one recently almost that exact size I think. Mine was about 1/2 dollar sized. Your's definitely looks better. I think I would have done better with the cookie cutter. I need all the help I can get, but I didn't have it with me at the time.
