I actually drove by and saw a CC van cleaning an apartment and saw a box of Tide by the back doors

I almost crashed into the car in front of me from laughing so hard

 

it's great advertising

 Nightrider called the consumer hotline for Proctor & Gamble and had me put on a three way conversation and asked them some straight-up questions regarding using Tide for carpet cleaning.

He may want to share them with us.

I have to say that the primary response to my question regarding the usuage of Tide on carpets was that it is NOT recommended and that it is formulated to be used on clothes and other said like materials.

Although she did say that I may use it if I chose to do so......BUT........at my risk, and that Tide in NO WAY endorses any such use other that a laundry detergent.

The formulation for carpet cleaning chemicals are your best choice of product to clean carpets and should not be used to wash clothes with and vise versa.

I was speaking to the head chemist of bio formula studies and assesments of fibre content of outsourced manufacturing and development

That's it in a nutshell, Ted was on the other line when I called.

You lose Steamer..........Ted recorded the conversation for all the non believers & fools that clean carpets with laundry formulated soap.........that is exactly why you have customers calling you back to complain that their carpet fibres are falling out and sticking to their feet.

Why not wash your hair with furniture oil soap.

After all soap is soap..........right Steamer

I don't lose anything......

Ted has a business to protect... unless you guys where talking to the lead chemist, your findings mean nothing.

put your money where your mouth is...

take all the leading detergents to a lab and have them analyed....ask for comparisons.. you'll see for yourself.

no home tests... no crap.. spend the money dont go out looking for free information from the first person that answers the phone.

nightrider your smarter than that

There product is sold beyond imagination. Probably caught the the receptionist offguard with alot of technical questions. No real big market for them for carpet cleaners. Our wives buy up the damn product regardless anyways.

Yes, I believe there are lots of people cleaning carpets using the powder tide with alternative bleach. As far as in a tm, I need to do a test. Carpetologist I think  concerns are about residue and possibility of resoiling sooner.  As far has harm not to worried just as long as you use not too much. Use as Mr. Steamer said. Carpetologist you have that picture with the scoop backwards for a 5 gal solution tank 16 scoops formula 90 and 2 energizers right?

I use the powder formula 90. But I am reading a Chemspec formula 90 liquid gallon and it says heavily soiling 5 gallon tank use 32 oz of liquid. That's alot of liquid.

  And you were saying?

In looking at the label there needs to be a little clarification. The 32 ozs / 5 gallon refers to how much Liquid Formula 90 needs to be put in the 5 gallon concentrate if you run detergent through your metering system.

In most cases from my experience a 5 gallon concenrate pail will clean on average between 3,000 - 5,000 sqauer feet. Hope this helps
