Just got out 10-year-old stains from my 91 Mustang carpet... AMAZING!

Just thought I would pass this along.

It *is* a nice product. And pretty economical, too.

I don't care if Sal dropped a deuce in my package

I was amazed the first time I used Folex, now its pretty much all I use on carpet.

Target, Wal-Mart, Safeway, Albertson's, Lowe's, Home Depot, Long's to name a few. I think all these places carry it. I might have to buy some and try it out on my mom's filthy Corolla carpet.

Folex is great! It does a fantastic job on carpets and will remove 99% of any stains on there.

Wonderful product. I use 2 oz to 1gal for general cleaning and spray full strenght on tough stains. I removed a several year old tar and oil stains on my dads floor mats. Looks brand new. Easiest that I have used.

You can get anything from a small bottle to the gallons at your local Lowe's (and I would imagine Home Depot as well, but who wants to go to that place ;))

Yeah I got mine at the local Target store.

After reading about how great it was on this site. I have a VERY stubborn stain on my rear seat that I have never been able to get out.

This is the only product that has even managed to decrease the stain. I've had the stain "professionally" treated as well and the guy couldn't get it out.

A few tries with the Folex didn't completely remove the stain, but it DID reduce it so that you really have to be looking for it to see it.

Other than that it got out spots and stains that were 10 years old that were also professionally cleaned.

AMAZING stuff thank you Autopia :)

I read on the back of the bottle that you can use it with a carpet cleaner so I assume you can use it with a vacuum or any other cleaner.
