Vanish Power Powder Carpet Cleaner
Advantages: Nice scent
Disadvantages: Everything, just didn't work for me!
Carpets really are the vein of my life! I have a chocolate Labrador, my sister's kids whom I look after a lot and my friends children. All this with beige carpets is a bad idea. I am forever using products to make my carpet look clean.
Vanish Power Powder - Deep Carpet Cleaning:
'Convenient deep carpet cleaning for large areas. Revolutionary fast drying moist Power powder removes tough ground in dirt and dust trapped deep in the carpet.'
I first spotted this on a television advert awhile back and well I got sucked in! From the claims it made, I really wanted to try it. The idea being that it is faster than other carpet cleaners, so no getting the larger carpet cleaner out. No getting down on your hands and knees scrubbing the carpet.
Sounded good to me, so off I went on the hunt to try and find it. When I purchased this for the first time it was cheaper than the prices they are asking now.
Nice and simple to use, you just sprinkle the powder over the carpet. Get your brush and rub it in and then you just leave it to work its 'magic' for twenty minutes. Once the time is up you simply vacuum the product up and it should leave you with sparkling clean carpets.
So now using the product in real life, I followed the instructions step by step. One ventilate the room well, two vacuum the carpet before use. Three shake the container; four remove the top and sprinkle evenly over the carpet. Now step five, with a soft bristle brush immediately brush the powder thoroughly into the carpet.
I did that for around ten minutes then left alone for twenty minutes just like instructed. Well my living room was freezing with the conservatory windows open, so I was hoping this was going to work! I started to vacuum up the powder and I didn't notice any difference what so ever.
I added extra product to some darkened patches when I started and just not one bit of difference. After all that time and effort, I wasn't very happy. So as it is a rather large tub (510g) I repeated the process thinking maybe it needed a little bit longer. So this time I left it for around thirty five minutes!
Now by vacuuming the powder up once more I did notice a slight improvement to the darker patches. But very slight certainly not worth all the time I put into cleaning the carpet. I could have foam cleaned it faster!
One good thing I guess is the clean scent, I love the smell of fresh cleaned items and it did smell rather nice. However I could have done the same job with Shake n Vac for a quarter of the price. Personally I would never purchase this product again and really do feel completely miss sold.
Vanish Power Powder comes in a bright pink tub so it really is hard to miss in the supermarkets. The lid is an easy screw off lid, no safety features so needs to be away from children. Once empty can be recycled.
Price and Availability:
I paid £4.00 for this product but looking at the prices now it is around the £6.00 mark. I personally feel this is way too much for the poor results archived.
I would never purchase this again and nor do I recommend this product, for me I found it a waste of time and money. Didn't do what it claimed so thumbs down in my book.
One out of five stars from me.
Thank you for reading.
