Have you ever had a child who loves writing all over your carpet with permanent marker? What about dumping a bottle of fingernail polish on your carpet? Or perhaps just spill a drink that stains the carpet?
The carpet in my house is disastrous. Partly because it’s old (and the previous owners had children and a dog) but mostly because my second born needs to be watched 24/7, At least he did a couple of years ago. Thankfully, he has grown out of drawing all over the walls and carpet stage!
When Spot Shot asked me to try their Instant Carpet Stain remover, I knew I could really put it to the test. I’m always looking for the best carpet cleaning tips, so if Spot Shot could remove the stains in my carpet, it would top the list of my “must have cleaning products” list.
Testing Spot Shot Carpet Cleaner
It’s nice to be able to see a product working great at times, so I recorded a video for you as I put it to the test. Recording while working was a bit difficult than I expected, so forgive the shaky video at the beginning.
You can see Spot Shot in action here.
But if you’re more of a text/image kind of person, here’s the summary.
Spot Shot was tested on the following stains:
- coffee stain (I think)
- permanent marker stain
- fingernail polish stain
- furniture polish stain
Let’s start with the coffee stain.
Spot Shot got the coffee stain, which was probably only a couple of days old out in one application.
Spray, Wait 5 minutes, Blot and your stain is gone.
Easy as can be.
Permanent marker stain.
As mentioned in the video, Spot Shot removed about 95% of the permanent marker stain with two applications. After shooting the video, I applied spot shot two more times and then let it dry.
As you can see from the before/after shot below, the permanent maker is at least 99% gone!
Fingernail polish stain.
About a year ago, my spunky little guy took the fingernail polish out of my purse and dumped it out, leaving a bright pink stain. I tried everything hairspray, rubbing alcohol and even fingernail polish remover but the stain just got lighter, nothing could remove it completely. The carpet was so damaged, that I didn’t have much hope for removing the stain. Guess that’s a good thing because the stain is still there…as I’m pretty sure it would be with any carpet stain remover.
Furniture polish stain.
The furniture polish applied to our ottoman at the factory has left some serious stains on our living room carpet. Thankfully, it’s a big piece of furniture so it covers the stains well.
However, I tackled one of the stain in the video, then I gave it a try on the rest of the stains. After a couple of applications, the stains were gone.
Overall, Spot Shot did a fantastic job removing tough, old stains.
I put it to the test and it passed.
If you’re in the market for a great carpet stain remover, Spot Shot is worth a shot!
