With all those harsh chemicals such as energy, extreme clean  and  olefin cleaners as well as others . We should kinda see that TIDE will do none if any harm to our equipment. From what I read and see lets assume it does the same or almost equivalent the same clean at least on residential right. Is it the shame because its fricken TIDE right underneath our noses. To think I panic once in a while when I am need of chemical and it is Friday night and a big job on Saturday A.M. Better yet lets say you forgot to load up chemicals and you are at the customers residence carpets are filthy and it is a 400 dollar job. Hoses all laid out. Do you

 A) reschedule

 B)use water and steam or

 C) Use there Tide Ha ha!!!  or go to the grocery store. Then       the Bank

I use Tide boosted with Bleach then Bounce as my rinse so the carpet is soft and smells good.

You can take any product to a lab and have it broke down and manufactured and slap your own label on it. Instead of paying $30 bucks a gallon, you might pay $7 bucks a gallon.

I have a buddy in CA that does bonnet cleaning, last time I seen him he had 15 techs. Prices of product was killing him so he took it to a local chemist, had it broke down and now buys his product from the chemist for $7 bucks a gallon, turns around and charges his techs $10 bucks a gallon.

This guy grosses over a million bucks a year.

What do you mean chemist . Say i was to go to the yellow pages where and what do I do. Thanks!! I live in northern California.

I want to breakdown  the  new Buzz word in residue in   ENCAP and change it up a little and put a label on it.And sell back to The Great Hardini. Just kidding Carpetologist.   you would think that would be illegal.

77748, this is something where you might have to build a relationship with a local chemist or at least someone that knows what they're doing and has the tools to break down a product.

Send me a PM and I can give you the name and company of the guy I know in Southern California. He might share his knowledge with you or at least tell you how to go about doing it. I doubt he's on this board or the red board. And it has been awhile since I spoke to him.

Dennis,

Say what you will. You have no idea, you don't know me and you don't know the guy I'm talking about. You can say it's BS all you want. There's no doubt...this isn't something that can be easily done and you have to know what in the hell you're doing. Can I do it? Heck no.

But I know that this guy did it. I personally went to the lab with him several times to pickup product. If you think it's BS...fine. But I'll tell you what...you have no idea who I am or who he is. But you do have the right to your opinion.

Just looked at the ph on tide with bleach....of course, I couldnt figure out a dilution, but noticed the ph was 10.6 i believe it was. Cheer however was an 8.6, both having enzymes. Hmm, never would've considered it, but I guess it COULD be an option for some if they want to take that route. As for me, I use my pre-spray (pre-kleen or enz-all), followed by all fiber textile rinse by chemspec. Good luck!

I imagine foaming would be a big issue though....

Time to do some experimenting. using to many chemicals I use this stuff called Vanish in two parts by Esteem pet stains, coffee ect..

And then I use this stuff called ARA  anti resoiling agent by pro choice

And another call dirt chaser with enzyme as my pre spray by pro choice

All this on every call on residentials not to mention formula 90 and energiser. Deoderizer. Each chemical is unique to its stain not to mention all the other chems.

Buying one or several chemicals fine but I am always out of something and they add up which is fine just trying to cut some corners.

Then theres advertising, insurance, logos, magnets, cards, bus forms man I can go on but you just don;t say my chemicals 5% man you have to look at the big picture vehicle, TM,gas, latest tools,workers. In other words you cut costs wherever you can this Tide thing looks like a sure thing. So Tide has enzymes this is getting better. Thanks the foam thing i have 2 gallons of Defoamer i used with my portable a long time ago never needed in my TM so I might have to throw in a ounce or two that can be controlled by keeping  the chemical meter at 2. Probalbly 2 to 3 scoops in the 5 gallon solution tank

If this could work I probably would not have to hydroforce my enzyme treatment since it is in the TIDE. If it cleans as it is supposed to since i might not hydroforce carpet will dry faster. Hydroforcing leave carpets wetter even after a second pass. Not knocking the hydroforce a vital and essential tool that has been very handy. Testing on my house is needed.
