Greenwald's Carpet and Fabric Stain Remover Kit

With kids and pets, it seems there is always some spot or stain that needs to be cleaned on my carpet or furniture.  This new product sure has come in handy.
 Greenwald's Carpet & Fabric Stain Remover Kit is a convenient way to get multiple spray bottles worth of product at a fraction of the cost and with less waste.  The product ships in a box that contains an empty spray bottle and a package with 6 water soluble packs that contain the concentrated cleaning solution.
 These cleaning solution packs are quite small, very soft and flexible.  To make the cleaner, one simply drops a packet into the bottle and fills the bottle with water.  I love that the concentrate is so small and easy to store, not large re-fill bottles to hang onto or wasted containers when the cleaner is gone.
 Once the packet touches the water, it begins to break down.  After a minute has passed, the user simply needs to shake the bottle (with sprayer attached) and the cleaner is ready to use.
 I got a chance (unfortunately) to put this cleaner to work pretty quickly.  A bowl of cereal complete with milk spilled all over my newly upholstered dining chairs.  I simply sprayed this lightly citrus scented cleaner on the fabric, after blotting up as much as I could of the spill, and walked away.  When I returned a while later, the cleaner had dried, there was no indication of a spill on the chair (no water marks or other spots) and no smell either.
I have no doubt this cleaner will get plenty of use at our house in the coming days, and love that when I run out I can easily make more.

This cleaner has two options for mixing to address cleaning needs.  With one packet dissolved in the bottle, it is prepared to handle fabrics.  Two packets dissolved make it carpet ready.  My one complaint is that it isn't really dual use in this capacity.  No doubt it will still work on carpet in the lighter concentration, however, I cannot speak to comparing the two strengths as I only have one bottle with which to mix and dispense them at this time.

If I could change one thing:  I would re-word the directions.  It starts out directing you to dissolve two packets and goes through instructions for doing so.  Once that is complete then the directions address dissolving only one for fabrics.  I would rather it have the two options (for fabrics or for carpets) in bold with the instructions for mixing them to follow.  In this way, the user would more clearly understand what to mix for their needs.

These things aside, I like this cleaner so far, have no aversion to the scent, and intend to get months of use out of this single purchase, and am glad to have the option to do so!

I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and un-biased review.
