Keep your home looking clean

  • Step 1

    Protect surrounding non-fabric materials from overspray. If overspray occurs, quickly wipe it up.

  • Step 2

    Shake can well. Hold 10 cm (4") to 15 cm (6") from fabric or carpet. Spray an even coating of foam on fabric. Wait 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Blot or lightly rub area with a clean, damp cloth or colourfast sponge. Rinse cloth and repeat until clean. Stubborn stains may require additional treatments. DO NOT SATURATE FABRIC. To avoid rings, clean an entire section of fabric at a time.

  • Step 4

    When dry, wipe clean with a dry colourfast cloth or vacuum thoroughly.
