Why risk it?

plenty of products at or under 10 that along with a scrubbing will get most any soil out.

I doubt you see thick heavy grease on your rugs so don't use a product meant for restaurants and lazy cleaners who don't want to scrub.

Try some liquid laundry detergent with out optical brighteners . As long as you are soaking and rinsing it out.

Hi guys,
If I decide to use powerburst as a prespray on the wool, how much is the recommended dilution?

Because the product is buffered, dilution will cause very little change in the pH.

Please don't use it on a wool rug or carpet

You want products to maintain pH in dilution for them to work effectively on heavily soiled carpets, so you can expect that most of your preconditioning products for heavily soiled products will be buffered.

Because wool fibers and dyes are damaged by highly buffered products, you need to avoid that type of product.
