Spring Cleaning with Chem-Dry

Between the mud that gets tracked in from outside and the abundance of things that get spilled on the floor and furniture it’s a wonder I get to sit down at all! Here recently I’ve welcomed these things and before you go and call me crazy please note I have a good reason. See, Chem-Dry sent us three of their products (we partnered with the NicheParent Network for this campaign) to test out. They sent the Carpet Stain Extinguisher Spot Remover, Grease & Oil Stain Extinguisher, and Carpet Deodorizer.

PicMonkey-Collage-1The first thing I tested out was the Carpet Stain Extinguisher Spot Remover, which seemed perfect for the glob of ketchup that somehow dried up on the couch. Please don’t ask how a glob of ketchup was around long enough to dry up because I don’t have an answer. Chalk it up to the stress of packing/moving and trying to keep up with my normal day-to-day life. The point is the ketchup was there and it wasn’t going anywhere without some help. I read the directions on the can of Carpet Stain Extinguisher Spot Remover which basically told me to spay the product directly on what needed to be cleaned, allow it to sit for a few minutes, and wipe away with a damp cloth.

Clean FurnitureI did all that and was so pleased with the results I went over to the orange stained carpet a few feet away.

PicMonkey-CollageI repeated the process to see how the Carpet Stain Extinguisher Spot Remover would work on Kool-Aid stains that had been there for who knows how long. I wasn’t as impressed with the carpet as I was the furniture but it still did a good job at lightening up the stain. You can barely tell there was anything spilled unless you are looking for it. Again, I have no clue how long it had been there but it had to have been at least 2 weeks (the last time there was orange Kool-Aid in the house.)

I haven’t had much reason to try the Grease & Oil Stain Extinguisher thank goodness, but knowing my friends it’s going to come in handy eventually!

The Carpet Deodorizer is absolutely amazing, especially since there is smoking inside. Days after using the Carpet Deodorizer the house still smells fresh and clean with no trace of stale smoke. It is an eye opener to smell the difference and helped me come to the decision to ban smoking inside. It helps with pet odors as well making it a must have product for any home! The Carpet Deodorizer even helps bring matted, dull carpet back to life which is a huge bonus!
