Carpet and upholstery rinse. Here’s the Easiest way to Clean Carpets Better Than Safer. Neutralises alkalinity from high pH presprays. Add to the rinse tank or inject in line.

Available in 5L

There are two things that spoil a good carpet cleaning job, fast re-soiling from sticky detergent residues and browning when the carpet is left in an alkaline state or is slow to dry.

RESEARCH PRODUCTS new FIBRESAFE Carpet and Upholstery Rinse is the easiest way to avoid problems on “suspicious” carpets like cotton or silk rugs and light coloured wool Berbers. In fact, any carpet cleaning job will look better and be safer.

Stops Greying Effect - Whites Stay Whiter

FIBRESAFE Carpet and Upholstery Rinse is not an optical brightener. Its a mildly acid solution that complexes calcium, iron and other hardness salts so that they cannot form “greying crystals” on fibre as it dries. You’ll really notice the difference in areas like Adelaide, Perth and South West Queensland.

Leaves Fibres Softer - Stays Cleaner Longer

By helping to remove detergent residues as well as hardness salts, wool fibres are left softer and less likely to attract and hold soil. Removal of residues is most important on polypropylene, short fibre nylon and new generation nylon fibres. Sticky residue masks the great performance of these fibres especially if they have been protected at the factory or with protection in-situ.

Helps Stop Browning - Neutralises Alkalinity, Stabilises Colours

By lowering the ph of the rinse in your hot water extractor or truck mount, you slight acidify the carpet. Cellulose fibres like cotton, hemp, jute as well as wool find acidic conditions to their liking. Under normal drying conditions it is impossible for these fibres to brown when carpet and upholstery rinse is used. Helps stabilise dyes as well, especially useful if a carpet has been heavily pre-sprayed or spotted with alkaline cleaner or spotter.

Neutralises Urine Deposits

Fresh urine turns hard and yellows the carpet by the formation of “Urea” in the fibre. Carpet and Upholstery rinse dissolves urea therefore the yellow is effectively removed. Use prior to any deodorant being added.

Economical To Use – Here’s How

Carpet Cleaning - Portable Machines
Add directly into the tank as you add hot or warm water. Dilute 1 to 50 (100ml to 5 Litres of water).

Truckmount Machinery
Because these machines usually provide a better finishing of the fibres with a larger volume of water, a lower amount of Carpet and Upholster Rinse is required. Add 1 litre to 24 litres of water and feed through venturi or purge meter/feeder at number 3 to 5 setting.

Upholstery Cleaning - 1 to 50 (100ml TO 5 Litres)
If pre-spraying with carpet pre-spray solution of unknown pH, it is a wise move to use Carpet and Upholstery Rinse. Particularly on cottons, cotton prints, linen and Indian cottons. (There is no need to use it when FIBRESOFT RINSE is used, this contains its own neutraliser).

Urine Removal
Mix 150mls to 5 litres water (1 to 130) in pre-spray pump (no other chemical) spray affected area, leave for a few minutes and extracting clean with water. Deodorise with ODABAN as required.

Handling and Safety Data

Contains mild acid solution - do not spray near eyes. Can cause skin drying on prolonged contact, wear gloves and a mask if spraying in confined spaces. Do not use through fogging machine or spray with a fine mist - may cause irritation to mucous membranes.
