Cleaning Agents For Spot Removal

Absorbent Cleaners Host®, Capture®, or Dri-Matic®

Ammonia Solution

Mix one tablespoon clear ammonia (3% solution) with one half cup water. This solution must be neutralized with vinegar solution.


Some chemicals are hazardous (corrosive, flammable, toxic, etc.) and should be used with great care, strictly in accordance with their use and safety instructions.

DO NOT apply solvent-containing products or Dry Spot Remover #2 to bonded carpets (carpets that are not tufted or woven, but where the pile is bonded to the backing). When applying Dry Spot Remover #2 or other solvent-containing products, have the work area well ventilated.

DO NOT apply stain repellent treatments which contain any silicone because they tend to accelerate carpet soiling. (Some carpet manufacturers do not accept responsibility for complaints where such treatments have been used.)

Always pre-test a cleaning agent in an inconspicuous place, such as under a piece of furniture or in the corner of the room, to insure that it does not remove color.

Vinegar Solution

Mix 1/3 cup white vinegar with 2/3 cup water.Solvent

A dry cleaning solvent (available at grocery, drug and hardware stores) such as Carbona®, Energine®, or K2R® (chemically known as 1.1.1 Tricloroethane preferred).

Naturally easy maintenance

To protect the investment made in a Wools of New Zealand Brand carpet or rug, it’s important to follow prescribed maintenance periodically to keep it looking and performing at its best. Cleaning at regular intervals – rather than waiting until the carpet is heavily soiled – actually extends its life. And when carpet life is increased, so is the return on your investment.

Properly maintained carpets enhance the appearance and atmosphere of interiors either contract or residential. A well-maintained Wools of New Zealand Brand residential or commercial carpet absorbs dirt, airborne dust particles, fumes and noise. It even makes the indoor environment more hygienic. Maintenance makes sense. Maintaining the beauty of wool carpet is exceptionally easy – in fact, a lot easier than most people think. You see, wool’s unique and complex fiber structure releases soil up to 25% more readily than synthetic carpet. Not only that, its scaly outer structure holds soil high on the pile, right where the vacuum can lift it out. Quickly and easy.
