I must admit, this review came about quite by accident. My wife was getting ready to steam clean our white carpets as our 3 dogs like to make them grey. So there I am sitting at my desk working. My wife has a small bottle of “water” and a toothbrush and is applying the “water” to the spots on the carpet as a pre-treatment before steam cleaning. Now normally I completely ignore this type of activity for fear of being dragged into it. But then she said, “This stuff really works…” My caveman instincts kick in and I let out a UGHHHH? My head turns in her direction and a review is born.

Final thoughts on practicality
A good stain remover at a fair price. Shipping is $5.99 but it is a few lbs of weight so that’s not bad. I am not too sure I would use it for my gutters but hey, if you have dirty gutters, give it a try.
Oh and a personal note to Billy Mayes (I’m sure he reads this Blog…), I see you have been advertising some wonder hooks to hang things…. Hooks and weights, that reaches right into my caveman soul. Oh yea, I will be hanging some 50lb weights real soon to see if they can hold. But that is for another review….
