Non-toxic Cleaning : Biokleen Bac-Out

July 19_Pic 1

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but I have a small menagerie of pets. I swear; between messy treats, drool, and accidents, they are tiny little carpet terminators. I have tried everything to get spots out: Resolve, carpet steaming, whatever new oxy-fresh pet product I see at the store….you name it. This is why I had to share my recent stain removal story with you.

In the past, I’ve used Biokleen Bac-out to prevent stains in various fabric items. Bac-out is a stain and odor remover that uses enzyme cultures and plant botanticals. It’s also free of nasty-ass chemicals like chlorine, ammonia, SLS and other pollutants and hazardous materials. This last part is important when you have dogs that lick the floor as if it’s made of bacon.

So I decided to see whether it would work on some of the old carpet stains that I’ve been unable to get out. The below results are from saturating the spot with the cleanser and letting it sit for 5 minute before blotting it up with a rag.

As you can see, the stains aren’t 100% gone, but it is definitely an improvement. This isn’t a sponsored post. I just really wanted to share this tip with you because it’s the most success I’ve had with any carpet stain remover ever.
