Is it as good as ‘resolve’?

This blows resolve away hands down. Blood stains vanished within seconds before my eyes. See it to believe it!

I’m looking for folex stain remover for laundry items. Can you help me find it?

Even though it says carpet stain remover, i use it on all my washable laundry items for spot stains. I also carry a folex filled travel size hair spray bottle in my purse at all times for those pesky times i get food stains on my clothing. As with most stains the sooner you can remove the stain, the better. It is the best product i have ever found and also works well with cat stains. The best price is usually at home depot in the cleaning products section.

Does this have an odor ?

Not only odor free, it is safe for this mcs (chemically sensitive) user. Just used it to remove silver scratch marks off exterior of garage door that would not scrub off with water. Not sure why company labels this awesome water based cleaner as carpet spot remover when fine print also says it can be used on a variety of surfaces as long as they are color fast.

Will this take red or yellow or purple kool aid out of carpet?

Yes, it took me a couple of applications of rubbing or blotting gently but it did come out. I was amazed, shocked and surprised all at the same time because it worked. Couldn’t believe it. I had white/eggshell covered dining room chairs that someone had spilled purplish blue ink, looked like from a pen. And a professional fabric cleaner told be that they would not be able to get that out. Had stumbled across folex and tried it on my carpet worked like magic. Tried it on the chairs, i had to be patient and work with it but it worked. Wow!!!

What am i doing wrong? I pick up cats’ hairball chunks, spray on heavily, rub with fingers, then rub w/ dry towel but stains remain after 5 tries!

Warning!! Boiling water (recommended below) may melt the synthetic fibers in your carpet!!

This was recommended by my step-mom for stains puppy might leave. Whilst housesitting with my 7 mo puppy, pup had an incident with soft poo. A semicircle of poo. I’ve been using nm products, but this blows it out of the water!!!
In less than a minute later, spots are gone. It says it removes wine and blood (don’t ask…jk). I blotted after spraying generously, i rubbed it with my fingers, as instructed, then blotted twice with paper towels. No spots on paper towels either. I’m hooked & everyone i know will now too. Just ordered 1 for myself, so will review again asap after receipt. Sorry, i can’t post pix, but its a pix of the beige carpet with no stains.

Do u just spray n gone or one those that u need vacuum ?

It’s suppose to be spray and gone. But it’s more like spray and stay. Doesn’t work, oxi-clean is by far a better alternative.

Is this 2 16 oz bottles or 2 32 oz bottles?

I received my today. I got one full 32 fl. Ounce bottle and another practically empty (maybe about a 1/4 or 1/6 ounce full and no receipt in the box. I’m never buying from this seller again. If i could give seller a 0 star rating i would.

Can this be used on 100% wool rug?

Like any other cleaner on natural or untested material, try it on an inconspicuos spot and then use it on larger areas. You might also try diluting it, as it is pretty strong. I have used it on synthetic materials and did not damage anything.

Has anyone successfully removed an oil/grease stain from a carpet with this?

I have used folex on carpet stains, but i do not know if they were oil/grease. On a badly stained indoor/outdoor carpet, i had a lot of stain that the folex would remove, but it would return after a week or so. On smaller stains, it has worked great for me.

What is the difference between the spot remover and the stain remover?

My non-expert answer is that a spot is more surface and a stain is more soaked in. Folex will handle most of the small ones, 1′ to 6′. Others may take a stronger, more industrial application. But for quick clean up of spills and other small stains (especially recent ones) folex works. I once went out of state and rented a room in someone’s basement. The former renter was a student, and spilled drinks and food on the carpet. It took several applications and scrubbings on some spots/stains, but folex took care of them all.

I inherited a nice overstuffed chair that needs a good cleaning. Has anyone cleaned a whole chair with it?

I’ve only used it on carpet, but it’s amazing there.

How do you think folex compares to ‘nature’s miracle just for cats advanced’?

This is for stains including pet stains and works amazing. Natures miracle is amazing on cat urine smell. You could use this for a back up for the stain.

Will it remove odor as well?

It did in my situation. Contact the manufacturers to ask them about odor elimination or control.

Is this product cruelty free?

It doesn’t specifically say that but it says that it is safe to use around children and pets.

Is this total 32 oz in 3 bottles or 32 oz in each of the 3 bottles?

There are 3 bottles, of 32 oz each, for a total of 3 quarts.

What are the cleaning ingredents… Is it soap ??

This is what is on the bottle, non-magnetic, non toxic, non flammable, odor free, voc, cfc and petroleum free, this is what is on the web site:chemically: folex is a water based non-ionic surfactantwater based means that it uses water to wash the stain away, for safety, and virtually residue free cleaning. Unlike some soap, solvent, or oil based cleaners that could be smelly, toxic, flammable, leave a sticky residue, or damage the carpet doesn’t contain soap, and it hasn’t yellowed on my light colored carpets, all i know is it worked and continues to work great for me!check out their web site for more answers:

Will it work on old blood stains?

I would give it a try….it worked on an old grease stained entry mat that i tried just about everything on and was forced to use the flip side, this product cleaned it so that you cannot tell it was ever there.

Will it remove mattress stains?

It’s worked well for my youngest’s mattress. I’ve seen some pretty yellow stains turn quite a bit whiter! It’s been the best thing for taking smells out!

What’s the difference between this & the professional folex? Beyond the professional having two more ounces and being cheaper?

I emailed them recently via the contact page on their website. The conversation regarding your question is listed below:

me: ‘hi, i was about to purchase one of your products on amazon but i noticed there is an ‘instant carpet spot remover (32 oz)’ and a ‘professional carpet spot remover (34 oz)’. Other than the size, what is the difference, if any, between the two products?’

them: ‘thank you for taking the time to contact us! The folex instant carpet spot remover is the product we have been making for over 45 years, and continue to make today. We also have a newer product called folex professional carpet spot remover sold only at your local bed bath & beyond stores. Chemically, they work equally to one another. However, the design of the professional bottle is for high use with a shorter bottle (easy on the wrist) that holds 34oz of product. Thank you. Sincerely, kt’

hope this was helpful!

Does it eliminate the odor of pet accidents?

Yes, it does a great job of eliminate odors after pet accidents. Just after moving into my townhouse with carpeted floors, my dog came down with pancreatitis and had horrible diarrhea and vomiting throughout the house while i was at work. I was able to clean all of the spots up with no residual smell or stains. I have recommended this product to friends with animals and have received positive feedback.

My favorite cleaning solution!

I love this product! I’ve been using this for many years. It cleans everything really well. Originally purchased to spot clean the carpet, then tried it on other items and it never disappoints. I keep finding new ways to clean with it. Love the light scent and no harsh chemical fumes.
1. Carpet, rugs: cleans carpet, rug stains (even better than my steam cleaner). Great if you have pets.
2. Fabric: used it weekly to wash my boys’ white football practice uniforms. They always came out really white. Coaches and other parents commented and asked how i got their uniforms so clean. No harsh bleach smell.
3. Cleans vinyl–just spray and wipe. Discovered this by accident.
4. Grout: decided to try on grout. Works better than a more expensive tile and grout cleaner i was using. I compared them side by side, before proceeding. I also use less product and didn’t have to deal with harsh chemical smell.
5. Grease: cleans. Removes greasy stains.
The 3 pack is a great price. It’s nice to always have in on hand.

This stuff works!

I was first given a bottle of folex by someone i hired to clean my carpets. Since then i’ve used this product on just about every kind of stain imaginable, and it has almost never let me down. We just had a large tomato sauce spill on our dining room carpet that we didn’t find for about two week after it happened. I wasn’t sure if even folex would work since that stain was dry and set in. I gave the spot a few squirts, then worked the cleaner into the carpet with my fingers. After a few seconds i could already see the spot fading. Once i blotted the spot with a clean cloth, the spot was gone! I have no idea how this stuff can be so good, but it is. I’ll never be without it.

I am so thankful for this product. I have 3 dogs all male so marking their spot is important to them, angers me alot. One is 14 and well rules don’t apply to him anymore, another a puppy, and finally one who just needs to make his presence known. So my carpet is horrible. We clean and clean but there is always a spot. Seriously this got up the spots. Is it just bought 100% from the store shiny. No but for the first time the spots are gone. I don’t dread walking down my hall anymore.
I know the carpet was clean, we bought our own carpet machines, but the stains never went away until now. Love love love.

What type of sorcery is this?

It must be sorcery. No sooner had i bought a home with brand new luxury carpeting both my cat and my dog vomited all over it. I have a carpet steamer and i tried no less than a dozen times, with various stain removers to get the stain completely out, but while it was reduced, a shadow still remained every place they had vomited. Then the cat got horribly i’ll and was soiling my whole noise from both ends of her body. I had stains everywhere that i couldn’t get up. I ordered this based on the reviews and it literally must be magic because all those stains, even the year old ones came right up! I was in disbelief but i assure you my carpet is completely stain free. Order this stuff immediately. You will be a believer too!

The best ever seen for rug stains!

We literally thought we would have to buy new rugs with all the stains and dark spots which was not what i wanted to do because i truly love the rugs i have! Tried everything and nothing worked until this! Wow wow wow you spray rub in wipe off and even old stains are disappearing! Our stains were so much we bought several bottles to do again and again to get really clean and we had a lot to cover. This works like nothing i’ve ever seen! Almost like shout it out but for rugs!
Amazing what it does and fast ! Great results! We are keeping my precious rugs i love!

Works on tough stays

The before and after pictures show a pop stain that is very old and a “grease” stain that was there before the house was purchased. This is from two sprays, letting it soak, and a little elbow grease.

We use it around the house on small stains all of the time. Sometimes you don’t have to let it set at all; you can see it cleans up in seconds.

Definitely worth having in your cleaning closet.

Magic in a bottle

I know many carpet cleaning advertisements show nasty stains and this magical transformation after using their products, only for us to be suckered into buying crappy cleaners and put on a display shelf of other crappy cleaners that disappointed us. I’ll admit, i’ve been on the receiving end of those more times than i care to admit, but again i decided to let my heart be swept away by what i thought would be the same sad story. But finally i found the magic bottle that “as seen on tv” commercials only wish they could glimpse at. I started out slow, like always, and started with the crushed dorito stain from yesterday and wham totally gone. Could it be??? Or were my eyes deceiving me? No way, it was a dream but i pinched myself to find i was awake. I had to make sure this stupid bottle wasn’t tricking me so i gave it everything i had. So i went to that year (ok years) old stain and spray it down, it faded but not gone completely. Ha i knew it to be too good to be true. But i decided just for kicks and because i had an hour before school pickup, let’s spray it again. Spray spray spray, i let it sit and when i came back to scrub and spray again, lo and behold the stain had disappeared. I contemplated what could be in this??? Tears of my enemies? Pictures of puppies? A switch from momma’s house? Were all these things too much for stains to fight against? I can’t be sure, but i know i forgot my child at school that day because i fought stains throughout my entire home and the entire neighborhood within that hour. Now i am known as the danny tanner ninja in my hoa. Also i need to own stock in this company.

This stuff has changed my life. With 3 dogs, there are always stains popping up and sometimes i don’t see them right away. Enter my new best friend…

It’s name is accurate – it is instant! I sprayed it on, did a quick easy scrub with a washcloth maybe 5 times, blotted dry and voila! I got every stain tackled in my house in less than 30 minutes – including some from months ago that i saw but were out of sight, out of mind. Bonus – it really doesn’t have a chemical smell so no passing out from my frenzied carpet cleaning!

I’m gonna buy this for housewarming gifts, puppy welcome baskets – really just because it works – for my friends and family! Worth every cent!

It does work

There was a spot on the carpet when i moved in. Over the years i tried to remove it. Nothing worked. But when i used this product it was completely gone. My daughter tried it on some markers in the carpet of her kids room and it helped but did not remove it completely. I just ordered another bottle. Love it!

Wow! This really works!

Wow! I had some horrible stains on my carpet from cat with diarrhea. I tried oxygen cleaners and enzyme cleaners and couldn’t get rid of them. I read reviews for this product and figured i’d give it a try. These stains were months old. It really works. I sprayed it on and used a brush to get it down deep, wiped with a towel and the stains are gone. I’d call it a miracle product!

This stuff works!

This stuff works so well. I got a new dog and i saw this recommended to clean up their messes. I wasn’t disappointed. It works to remove the stain and the smell. I’ve had it for a few years but i recently used it to remove makeup my daughter spilled on her carpet. It took the stain right out. This stuff is great.

It works, almost like advertised.

As you can see in the picture, my dog got a hold of a purple pen. He chewed the crap out of it purple ink everywhere. This got a large portion of it out, but did leave faint pinkish spots. I had to use oxi-clean to get the rest out it did just as good of a job as baking soda, lemon, vinegar and some rubbing alcohol…so that’s good. However, if it couldn’t get water soluble ink out, i question it’s ability on tougher stains. That’s all speculation though, it did good enough for what i bought it for.

Great for most stains

It’s great for most stains. I started using this. And it picked up most of everything. But for the most stubborn stains, it wouldn’t budge.

Does the job!

I used this for some pet stains in my livin gb room. It worked great!
I also used it on some older unknown stains (grease maybe?) and most of it came out. I can still see the stain a bit but am going to try it a couple more times and see if that works. This product does seem to get out stains that others can’t. Overall, very satisfied!

Product great, shipping not so much

The product itself works great, what is left of it. It wasn’t sealed all the way so it leaked through the plastic wrap and all over some cables that were packages with it. I definitely recommend the product, just wish it was better shipped.
