Carpet Stains of Doom

I have a raging headache right now.  The cause?  The carpet cleaner I used this afternoon.  I can hardly focus - my head, it pounds.  You know what I am going to do in the next few days, though?

I'm going to buy two more bottles of carpet cleaner and finish the job.  That's how good this stuff is.  See for yourself.

It is called Resolve Deep Clean Powder, and it is such an amazing product that I will gladly put up with a few days of headaches to get my carpets clean.  In this case, the end justifies the means.

My carpets are atrocious.  They get worse and worse by the minute.  I'm not sure at what point during the week my toddlers turn into construction workers who have been digging ditches in mud only to come in and ruin my carpeting, but they can stain a carpet in less time than it takes for me to turn a video on for them so they won't stain the carpet.  Up until this point, nothing worked to get out the food, juice, urine, "washable" crayon stains. 

 I am in a painful heaven.

The powder costs about $7 at the grocery store, and one tin of it covered about half my living room.  It's easy to use.  You shake the cannister, you sprinkle out the damp powder, you rub it in with a scrub brush, you leave it for 20 minutes, and you vaccuum the area.  Make sure to really vaccuum well.  If the particles can do this much damage to me, I can only imagine it would be bad for babies to roll around in.

My amazing internet research (by which I mean a friend) tells me that Resolve works  "because the powder is extremely hygroscopic, meaning it sucks every last bit of moisture out of the dirty goo in the carpet, leaving bits of crud which the vacuum can pick up easily. The powder itself becomes wetter, but the particles are in a shape that doesn't stick to the carpet fibers like random dirt does.  Not only does this type of cleaner work better, but your carpets will stay cleaner afterwards because there is no soap residue, which actually attracts more dirt."

Thank you, Resolve.  I will be buying a facemask and every other product you make as soon as possible.
