Interlink used to offer a custom label (has my company name, phone etc.) Wool Safe spotter. But not any longer. They offer a watered down version of Avenge which is a good spotter but not designed for wool.

I give those as a gift to my clients that have wool carpet. Yet, I'd like it to carry the "Wool Safe" or "Wool Balance" or some label indicating that it is safe for wool.

Anybody else makes those?

I just ordered Procyon custom label Spot and Stain Remover. A palette. However it does not carry the Wool Safe label or something that specifies in writing on the label, that it is safe for wool.

I know that a product may be wool safe yet not carry any certificate. However, with some of those extremely expensive wool carpets that some of my clients have, I'd want to have it.

And yes, my custom label specifies pre-testing etc. yada yada, YET it wll be nice to find a products that does specify that its for wool.

Marty, I like Vacaway products. Do they have anything on the label that indicates safe for wool?

I wonder if you could specify that they fill with Procyon Extreme instead of their spotter? The Extreme carries the woolsafe label and would work well as a spotter.

I don't think they would. A few years ago I had a conversation with (what's his name, the owner that drinks their product to demonstrate its non-toxicity) and if I understood correctly it wasn't as simple as that. Not sure why.

These spotters are Wool Safe. I am not sure if they do custom label or allow us apace to add our own. They ain't cheap:

I wonder if Rick from Excellent Supply may be interested in offering custom spotters. Or the guy from Carpet Cleaner America (the CRB mahines) will be intersted, as his product already carries the Wool Safe label:

I use to give away a great spotter that I poured off myself and printed the labels. It had some type of amyl acetate in it, smelled like bananas. Probably toxic as all hell but worked great. I have a long time customer who still asks for it. I am thinking about the procyon spotters. Price is pretty good and it's a safe product.

We developed and sold a great spotter for wool (Wool Balance) years ago like the Home Pro spotter program. We did not have enough volume to continue its existence (my mistake). If we cannot create enough volume, then other manufacturers will probably not attempt.

Damn Tom. Please re-consider. Don't be just about volume.

Vacaway does not offer one. Their "wool" product is Safe & Soft and they do not offer that in spotters. And Jon Don's spotter isn't either.
