Most retail carpet cleaning machines also come with their own matching brand of carpet cleaner solution, which is said to be designed just for use with your machine. In actuality, when you read the bottle labels, in the ingredients section you will often see many ingredients that you do not recognise, most of which are chemically based. Instead of using this type of cleaner, use OxiClean with your carpet cleaning unit, which uses natural oxygen ions to give a thorough deep-cleaning to your carpeting.
