Hi,
my washing process is:

Dust the carpet
I wet the rug with water mixed with acetic acid
I wet the rug with water mixed with a prespray cleaner
Agitate wool with Prochem TM4
Rinse with water and acid rinse by handtool of portable machine
Drying in a dehumidified room

Sometimes the rug is not very bright, especially in the light colored part. What chemical can I add to the prespray cleaner to lighten the light parts of the carpets more? Sodium percarbonate is a good idea??

Sorry for my bad english

Do a through job on the dusting step.
Use a good prespray that has been approved for use on wool.
Sometimes the colors simply are not very bright. I would not add sodium percarbonate. Oxidizers are generally not good for the wool or cotton foundation and and fringes. If you do use the SP, do not use much.

Dear Scott, how many oz of SP per gallon of water?
Thanks
