I've never used anything that worked nearly as good as Multi-Steam Upholstery Prespray.

Smells awful, though.

Avenge, Avenge HD, and Encapuguard Green have all been real good for me.

Randy are you looking for a preconditioner or an extraction agent?

seriously though, when I visited three furniture retailers (a Lazy Boy Gallery, a middle of the road and a higher end and an all natural organic) last week, 95% of all offerings were 95% or more pure Polyester.

All those scary brownoutable, shrinkable designer fabrics from the past are now Ultrapakable....




These are all 100% Poly....

Preconditioner. I rinse with Prochem all fiber rinse or the equivalent. Don't do much that can't be wet cleaned anymore and was quite happy with the heavy ammonia product I was using but it was reformulated into garbage.

Seriously, try Releasit DS2

I use a lot of prochems fine fabric prespray and fine fabric shampoo. Works on ordinary fabrics too. Sometimes with a little scrub.

None of those will be as knock out and as fast a cleaner as an ammoniated pre-spray. But it can also get you into some issues.

Kleenrite had a good one and there are other in the market as well. You can also boost your pre-spray with a little non-sudsy ammonia. I hate these pre-sprays smell.

But there are plenty of good ones mentioned above that would work well without the extra risk.

Avenge HD works well but is crazy expensive. About $26.00 per gallon to be diluted 1:1.
There's just no reason to pay that much for an upholstery pre-spray, where you can get pretty similar results with products that cost a fraction of that.

Actually, that one of the things I do with heavily soiled microfibre or polyester is to add some non sudsy ammonia.

I like ammoniated prespray products on synthetics, especially oil loving polyester and olefin.

I'm leaning more toward encap products than shampoo for everything else. They have better oil cutting qualities than conventional upholstery shampoos, and leave less residue. If you try to rinse a fabric you've shampooed, and you have a clear tool, you'll see how difficult it is to really remove all of the shampoo.

Encaps rinse out much easier.

You will get better bonding of your protector when you get better detergent removal too.

Prochem fine fabric gags me. I just use my carpet stuff on most of what I see.

I need to see if I can get the dry volatile solvent still. Best solvent I've found that I don't mind working with.

Im telling you, if wool safe Releasit will break loose the soil from the grunigeist of restaurant carpet, it will clean virtually any upholstery, safley.
Just the DS2 or encapPunch ?
