Having a blog that talks all about carpet cleaners means that I get a lot of questions from people about carpet cleaning, and the questions ranged from the usual “what is the best carpet cleaner for me?” to less usual ones like “can I use a carpet cleaner on my couch/upholstery/cat?”
Anyway, here is one that I get asked often – what is a good carpet cleaning solution that gets the oh-so-stubborn stains out? Being a mum and a pet owner, my carpets do suffer quite a lot from tough stains that don’t go away without using a spray or formula. After trying many types of solution, here are a few good ones to recommend.
Bissell 2X Portable Machine Ultra-Concentrated Pet Stain and Odor Formula
This is by far the best carpet solution I have ever used. For most, if not all, of the messes my kids and dog leave on the carpets in the house, I use this cleaning solution to get rid of the stain and smell. As this is super concentrated, you only have to use a little of the solution mixed with warm or hot water.
It works really well getting out stains from pet accidents, and even removes the odor, leaving a fresh (may be strong for allergic people) scent. I use this with my SpotBot portable carpet cleaner but it can also be used with other steam carpet cleaners.

Best Carpet Cleaner Spray for Cars
MOTHERS 05424 Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner
For the unwanted incidents in the car during travel, I keep a bottle of spray in the compartment for quick fixes. This Mother of All Sprays really gets the tough stains off! Caked mud, dried chocolate stains, you name it. I’ve heard that it doesn’t remove color stains like carrot juice, but I haven’t had that yet (my kids don’t like carrot juice) so I can’t comment.
It’s really easy to use too; just spray and wipe it off with a cloth. You don’t even have to use a damp cloth to take out the solution afterwards. It has a scent like air freshener. On the down side, the Mothers Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner can be an expensive spray so I have another cheaper option for the milder stains.
BlueMagic 900 Carpet Stain & Spot Lifter
I like to use this aerosol spray for food messes and spills in the car, and it works great. Whether the spill is new or old, just spray this on the stain, wait a while and rub or wipe off. It doesn’t work for the really stubborn stuff like curry though, and maybe because it is aerosol, the smell can be overpowering and one can doesn’t last a long time. Still, it’s inexpensive and better than many other carpet sprays.
