The Balancing Act

Give Tackling Tough Stains a Shot

Whether old or new, tough carpet stains can be eliminated

Pet stains, red wine spots, ground-in dirt, spilled baby food…..we’ve all had one or more of these tough stains —new or old— in our carpets….

The good news is that just because you’ve tried before to get them out doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Don’t give up on old carpet stains…..there IS a way to tackle these trouble spots!

Spot Shot® Instant Carpet Stain Remover quickly, effectively and safely removes carpet stains – even old stains and nasty pet stains, which can be a problem, a source of frustration and embarrassment in the household…especially for active families with pets!

Spot Shot works instantly to power out carpet stains without scrubbing. Just a quick blast of Spot Shot, blot, and the toughest stains disappear, leaving your carpet smelling clean and fresh.

  • Even the toughest and old stains from pets, greasy foods, chocolate, motor oil, red wine, blood, coffee, cola and lipstick are no match for Spot Shot’s complete cleaning power that prevents stains from returning.
  • Spot Shot’s aerosol format powers through fibers, carpet backing and through the pad to reach the entire stain – not just the surface stain. Its unique formula breaks the stain’s chemical bond to carpet fibers and allows for the entire stain to be blotted up and leave your carpet clean and deodorized.
  • Spot Shot Pet Aerosol is certified non-toxic.
  • You can use Spot Shot on any washable fabric. It’s great on laundry stains, but can be used in the car and on upholstery (just make sure to put paper or cloth towels behind the fabric and rinse thoroughly).

Here’s a common misconception: Never scrub a carpet stain! It can break down carpet fibers and actually “push” stains deeper in to your carpet. It will look clean, but the stain can wick back up from the carpet backing or pad to create a “ghost stain”.

For old or really tough stains, liberally spray on Spot Shot and keep constant pressure on the paper towels or white cloth being used to blot the stain (a cookie sheet with books or a bag of apples is perfect). Check stain after about an hour.

Always wipe treated areas with water to ensure there’s no residue to attract dirt.

And….Spot Shot is safe to use around pets and kids!

“The Balancing Act is a natural partner for Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover because the show offers helpful tips and solutions for today’s busy woman,” said Tim Lesmeister, vice president of marketing for WD-40 Company. “And Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover is a great tool to have on hand for spills and old carpet stains to prevent a simple mess from becoming a permanent problem!”
