Folex: Now You See Them, Now You Don’t

It’s been an incredibly busy year, and if you are anything like I am, being busy causes one to take shortcuts on big or small  jobs in the home.

Spills on carpeting seem to be one of them. A quick dab with some soap and water, tonic water, or baking soda, etc. can get rid of most of the initial damage, but look out, that stain oftentimes returns in some form or other that is noticeable.  Take steps to clean it properly, and voila– the stain is gone, for good.

From Small Jobs to Large, Detail, Detail, Detail: Folex is a Product to Try

I have tried multiple types of carpet cleaners. I’m sure you have, as well, and you may have found them perfectly acceptable.  I didn’t. But, I did find an inexpensive and effective carpet spot remover at Home Depot. It comes in an unobtrusive, white spray bottle. No graphic art display, no 4-color magic, just a white plastic bottle with dark purple type. It’s called Folex.

At first, I dismissed it, but something made me pick it up.  Maybe it was the minimum of type that you can actually read.  No flowery copywriter copy, just the facts.  And they were impressive. What’s more, the container boldly stated that the spot remover was 100% guaranteed. You could return the unused portion for a full purchase price refund. There was nothing to lose, so I bought it. And it really lived up to its promise– spots do not return.

Folex has been bottled by Folexport, Inc. in Portland, Oregon for over 40 years. It’s safe on colorfast carpets and upholstery. I can vouch for that. It’s non-magnetic, so spots don’t reappear. It’s non-toxic, completely non-irritating to normal skin. Odor free– no smelly chemicals. Non-flammable– it doesn’t contain solvents of any kind. And it’s free of VOC’s, CFC’s and petroleum.

I’m sold on it. I keep a bottle on each floor. And one other thing according to the instructions, Folex can be used in carpet cleaning machines– haven’t tried that but I just might.

Try it and let me know if it works for you.
