Vanish Product Guide to Carpets

In a busy home, there is always the potential of dirt and food spills. The carpets get the worst of it! Carpets can be stained in a variety of ways and by all manner of substances. But it is important to treat each stain properly so that it is completely gone. Whether it’s muddy footprints, a spilt beverage or everyday wear and tear, carpet stains can drive you to despair!


Fortunately, there are stain removing products like those in the Vanish range that can help remove tough carpet stains as soon as they appear.

Read this article to discover how our stain-busting carpet treatments can work wonders on even the most stubborn stains.

  • Vanish Spray

Pets can cause some of the nastiest kinds of carpet stains. Dogs and cats are prone to making big messes on the carpets, and these must be treated right away before they set in forever. Once you’ve removed any visible mess that’s left behind on the carpet, spray Vanish Oxi Action spray directly onto the stained area and rub gently. Or you can leave it on for five minutes, undisturbed.

Working to ensure your stain is treated on application the very first time, and also to prepare it for further cleaning, the Vanish Carpet Oxi Action Carpet & Upholstery Pre-Treat Spray contains a special formula that will also remove all vestiges and smells from the stain, leaving the carpet looking as good as ever.

For the best results, leave the stain removal treatment sprayed on for five minutes and wash the carpet as normal. You will find that the stain has disappeared completely.

  • Vanish Carpet Shampoo

This is a revolutionary product from Vanish that is able to remove up to five times more dirt than vacuuming alone. The Vanish carpet shampoo can soften, freshen and clean your carpet in just five minutes.

A quick fix for removing tough dirt stains that are ground into the carpet, Vanish 3 in 1 Carpet & Upholstery Shampoo also neutralises unpleasant odours. So your carpet not only looks and feels clean, but smells great too.

To get started, mix one part of the Vanish shampoo with nine parts cold water and whisk until foamy. Apply the foam to the carpet stain using a brush or sponge and allow it to dry. Do not rub into the stain or the stain might set in further, and you might also pull the carpet fibers. Let it dry into powder. Now simply vacuum away any foam/powder that’s left behind.

If you have a particularly stubborn stain, pour the shampoo directly onto the stain and leave for up to five minutes.

Thanks to these two carpet cleaners, no matter how bad your carpet might appear on the surface, with a little help from Vanish your carpets will be as good as new.
