Vanish Carpet and Upholstery Mousse
Advantages: Works really well on stains, does what it is supposed to do, easy to use.
Disadvantages: Can mark or stain certain fabrics.
I cannot get enough of this stuff. In my opinion it is an absolute god-send! We have a sweet, beautiful, fantastic dog named Sebbe. He is a really wonderful dog. We also have ducks. Over the winter the garden has become exceptionally muddy due to their love of throwing water everywhere and then splashing around in it in their big flat feet. The dog then goes out in the garden and runs through all the mud and gets covered. Most times we catch him and wipe his feet down with a towel, but sometimes the little monkey manages to slip past us and charge into the front room muddy paws and all, and rampages around the room all over our lovely beige carpets (he gets excited when he gets wet feet and has to do this running around ritual). We did pick mottled carpets on purpose to hide the dirt because dogs = dirt, however it's not equipped to disguise huge streaks of mud!
This is where the fantastic Vanish Carpet and Upholstery Mousse comes in handy. It is so very easy to use. You just hold the spray about 6" or so away from the muddy patch on the carpet and spray away. The mousse foams up on contact with the carpet. Completely cover the area and then get a damp rag and scrub away. The amount you have to scrub of course depends on how bad the stain is. When I have scrubbed the mousse into the stain and the area looks clean I leave it to dry and then all you have to do is go over the area a little later with the hoover (although I admit I don't always do this straight away, I usually wait until I am going to hoover anyway).
The Vanish mousse, works really well. It is great on mud and gets rid of it really easily. It also works wonders on other tougher stains, like oily food residues, dark coloured drinks and many more things. The mousse works everytime and I have never had an occasion where I have used it on a stain and it hasn't worked. I would reccomend that you do a little test patch on your carpets and sofas etc when you first get the mousse before you have to use it. Do this in an inconspicuous area because the mousse can stain or lighten certain fabrics, so it's a good idea to check that it is ok to use on whatever you may want to spray it on.
Looks wise, you can't really miss anything from the Vanish range as it is all bright pink, so you will have no problem finding it in the supermarket. I think the price is reasonable for what I use it for, cleaning up little patches of mud or stains every now and again. If you use it like this it lasts for ages. It costs roughly £4.40 a time. The fact that the Vanish advert suggests that you could spray your whole carpet with their products to clean it all is frankly a little ridiculous because it would cost a fortune to do this! Better to use a carpet cleaner for large areas.
All in all I give the Vanish Carpet and Upholstery Mousse a 9/10. It works fantastically and gets rid of some really tough stains aswell as it being good for general cleaning. It is reasonably priced and easy to use. I mark it down slightly for the fact that if you don't do test patches, you may find that it will stain certain fabrics.
Summary: Vanish Carpet and Upholstery Mousse is a god-send that really does do it's job properly.
