Gum or oily stains on your carpet? Try Prochem Citrus Gel
Got gum or oily stains on your carpet which normal cleaning won't remove?
Prochem Citrus Gel is a first class spot and stain remover, especially for oily stains on carpets and fabrics. It can be used for removing tar and gum, and several items which it's tricky to remove with normal methods.
WHAT ARE THE ACTIVE INGREDIENTS?
The main ingredients are a type of hydrocarbon, specifically C11-C12, known as isoalkanes. Alkanes are a type of paraffin oil-derivative, and are not soluble in water. They are thus suitable for use in cleaning oil-based stains where water-based cleaning will have no success.
HOW DO YOU USE CITRUS GEL?
You apply the gel to the stain, and leave for 2-5 minutes. You then get a white towel or tissue, and scrape or blot the stain away. (You don't rub, as that may make things worse.) Finally, you brush the carpet or fabric to realign the fibres.
WHAT IS IT SUITABLE FOR?
Citrus Gel is most suitable for grease, gum and oily stains. With gum, for instance, it softens it and makes it amenable to scraping off the carpet.
PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE
It's best to wear protective gloves while you're working on the stain, as it can be a skin irritant.
