Dry Cleaning Carpet at Home
- Thoroughly vacuum all areas you plan to clean. Vacuuming helps remove dry soil from the carpet and makes cleaning easier.
- Start with an empty vacuum cleaner bag.
- Vacuum slowly and thoroughly. Pay special attention to high traffic areas such as entrances, hallways and in front of favorite furniture.
- If there are high traffic areas, tough spots or greasy, oily dirt within the 10′ x 10′ area of carpet, pre-spray with Pre-Clean.
- Hold bottle waist-high and lightly mist Pre-Clean, using only 4 pumps per 3′ x 3′ area (do not use more than this; more is not better).
- Allow Pre-Clean to sit on carpet for 2 – 3 minutes.
- Turn box upright and snip open the foil bag.
- Apply about 9 handfuls of HOST to the 10′ x 10′ area of carpet.
- Apply more on spots and spills and in high traffic areas (entranceways, hallways, in front of favorite furniture) and less in areas where people don’t walk.
- Avoid applying to areas where there is no soil such as along walls or in corners.
- Remember, only apply HOST to one 10′ x 10′ area at a time so the cleaning ingredients remain active.
CAUTION: Persons with unusual skin sensitivity should protect hands and arms from direct contact. Persons having respiratory ailments should avoid using in unventilated, confined areas.
- Unwrap cord and plug machine into wall outlet (110 volt).
- Place one foot on the edge of the tray. With hand near the base of the handle, lift the machine up and out of the tray.
- Move the handle lock, found at the base of the handle, to the “Unlock” position.
- To operate, squeeze the lever underneath the top of the handle. To lock the machine in the “on” position, slide the button on the top of the handle over while squeezing the lever.
CAUTION: Test the HOST Dry-Clean Machine in an inconspicuous area of the carpet. Some soft texture carpets may fuzz when brushed. If texture distortion occurs, do not use.
Brush HOST through carpet
- Start in one corner of the 10′ x 10′ area and move sideways across the area using push /pull strokes to create an overlapping “W” pattern.
