    Which is stronger - APC+ or Purple Power for carpets?

    I am working on very old stains on old carpets, I mean 45 year old carpets. Even though they are old they are quite durable.
    Is there something better than what I`ve mentioned to make a improvement?

    Ive learned that sometimes the stain is just permanent specially after that many years I would guess. APC+ isnt available anymore so do you have some? Id guess the PP is stronger.

    So I bought the APC and another container of Folex. After inundating the particular heavily stained areas with Folex and alot of scrubbing with a toothbrush and a small detail brush, creating alot of foam, went over the whole carpet with APC and the toothbrush and small brush. Washed down the whole carpet with hot water and vacuumed up the excess water with the shop vac.
    Total time spent, a little over 2 hrs.

    Thanks, one piece at a time. I didn`t realize how many pieces go into the medium size 2 door. Leaving the carpets under driver and passenger feet for the last because that is what people see first. At this point I should have my techniq. down. Wish I could bring back the original shade but it is definitely an improvement.
