The best green cleaner. Remove pet stains & odors. Make carpets look & smell professionally cleaned.
We have two cats and two small kids and have both wood and carpeted floors in our new house. The carpet is BRAND NEW and it’s been crazy trying to keep it from getting stained. It’s almost like a job in itself; Bob and I have become the spot stain removers. Apparently, we have been using the wrong products. We try to use natural products – our kids walk on our floors – but what we were using was NOT cutting the stains that kept popping up. I heard about Genesis 950, the supposed best green stain cleaner on the market, and I wanted to test it out. I was VERY hopeful it would work!
Let me tell you a little about Genesis 950 and how it works. You can use this product for spot cleaning by mixing Genesis 950 with water in a 1:7 ratio (1 part 950, 7 parts water). If you have stronger stains, the dosage can be increased to a 50/50 split. If you have a stain on your carpet, spray the mixture and let it sit for about 2-3 minutes. Next, scrub the stain with either a damp cloth or sponge. This should lift the stain completely and then you will need to rinse the area with water. The exciting thing is that Genesis 950 can also be used to clean stove tops, counters, tile, finished wood, car upholstery & dashes, concrete . . . the list goes on and on. You can even used Genesis 950 for steam cleaning carpets and the amount of Genesis 950 varies based on the size of your steam cleaner tank. Not to worry, though, with every order, there is a set of instructions that break down the correct mixture for carpet cleaning. The biggest perk to me is that Genesis 950 is green. It is safe for the environment, and doesn’t contain harsh toxins that can cause illness or harm to you, your family or your pets. That is AWESOME.
Our Experience with Genesis 950 Stain Remover and Carpet Cleaner
- I recommend getting the Genesis 950 Stain Remover and Carpet Cleaner in a bundle that includes a spray bottle. It was SO easy to mix the stain remover with water and the spray bottle is very durable and easy to spray.
- We were very impressed with the stain removal properties of Genesis 950, and here are just a few examples:
- Cat Hairballs: I’m surprised that our two cats have any hair left on their bodies since they seem to lose most of it through coughing out hairballs. For whatever reason, the cats feel the need to go to one of our few carpeted rooms to cough up a hairball. It’s like they KNOW they will do the maximum damage to annoy us. Yeah! I was surprised to learn that the cleaning products we were using before were actually not recommended to use for cleaning stains off floors. Vinegar & ammonia, for example, contains acidic properties so the odor is not eliminated and actually can attract animals to go back to the same spot again to cough up a hairball. EWWW! It was all starting to make sense! Many other cleaners have enzymes, and only work as surface cleaners, and oxidizing cleaners with Nirtic Acid which is a product used in FERTILIZERS. Ewww! In our experience using Genesis 950 on pet stains, it removed the stain, and any associated odor because it contains anti-bacterial components. AMAZING!
- Kid Stains: Kids are messy, especially young children. However, both our kids deal with sensitively to allergies or sensitive skin. I noticed that they had no problem with us using Genesis 950 because as we all know, you can tell a toddler to NOT walk on the carpet when it’s wet from being cleaned, but it doesn’t always happen.
- Carpet Cleaning: We have a small carpet cleaner because, well, just see my first two bullets above. It’s needed! The amount of dirt that came up from the carpet seemed to be much more obvious using Genesis 950 that Bob and I were impressed. It left the carpet smelling *SHOCK* CLEAN. Yeah!
- Surprising Things We Cleaned! Genesis 950 is not just for carpet cleaning – oh no! We used the product to clean our counter tops, our stove, and even our toilets! It’s really an all-purpose cleaner that WORKS.
- Overall, we were super impressed with Genesis 950 and plan to get a new gallon when the one we have runs out. I should probably mention, since the gallon is the concentrate, a little has gone a long way when you mix with water. I think about all the different cleaners we use and now I feel like we can use Genesis 950 for everything. I’m still shocked it’s a green product and that it works so effectively. It was a nice surprise and I highly recommend!
About Amerikal: Amerikal, has been in business for over 20 years and primarily manufactures fountain solutions and other chemistry for the printing industry. Genesis 950 was initially created for printers to clean ink spills. It is a surfactant based cleaner that works with water to make stains water soluble. In doing so, it allows the bonds of the stain to break apart, and in turn lift the stain. Over time, printers were complaining that they were running out of Genesis 950 too fast. It turned out that 950 didn’t just remove ink, but removed paint stains, food spills and pet stains. Since 2010, Genesis 950 has been available exclusively through their store website at www.genesis950.com, and more recently on Amazon.com. It has recently expanded internationally and is now being distributed in Canada as well as the UK & Europe where they also have online stores for the product.
