Directions for Removing Spots from Carpets, Rugs and Upholstery with APS:

  • Pre-test in an inconspicuous location for dye stability and upholstery shrinkage.
  • Always ask what has already been used on the spot or stain.
  • UNLESS soot or other insoluble powder, simply clean first.
  • Don’t do anything to void warranty.
  • Remove excess debris with spoon, spatula or towel.
  • Apply APS to spot and work it into spot with a tamping brush, bone scraper or Carpet Shark.
  • BLOT, don’t rub - rubbing may distort the fiber tips.
  • Work from edges to center to keep from spreading the spot.
  • Blot using clean, white, absorbent towels.
  • Brush fabric to align fibers.
  • Don’t over-wet (causes wicking).
  • Avoid doing anything to make the spot or stain YOUR problem by making it bigger or making it a different color or by causing any damage!
  • If spot cleaning upholstery, clean entire cushion, not just a spot.
  • If you are removing a spot on a zippered cushion, place a towel under fabric under the area while spotting and remove later - to reduce wicking.
  • ALWAYS rinse thoroughly after use.
  • If a large or heavy spill, apply Stain Blotter to keep the stain from wicking back up and reappearing.
  • If wool, cotton or other natural fiber, apply Brown Out® after spotting and cleaning to prevent browning.
  • Brush fabric to align fibers.
  • Dry as fast as possible.
  • Be patient!
  • Under-promise & over-deliver!
  • CAUTION: Some medicines such as acne medicine contain oxidants such as benzoyl peroxide. These medicines will bleach the carpet dye when spotted with any water-based spotter such as APS. USE SPARINGLY.
