Its pretty much coconut oil. Cleaners used to shampoo carpet with that stuff before they had synthetic detergents, and a lot of guys afterward.

Talk about resoiling.....

You have to be older than dirt to remember cleaning with that stuff.

Where is the offending residue?

I did an older nylon with it yesterday that I could see it foaming up in the wand window and I flush flushing flush w/ six flow 600 PSI but there's enough of a residue that caused some wicking this morning ..I told her to hit it with peroxide and let me know if that didn't work

Treat it like a bottle of spilled hair shampoo. You'll need to use a subsurface extraction tool and lots of water.

Its going to resoil until you do.

Back in the 70's when hot water extraction first came out, cleaners would fight the shampoo guys by telling their prospective customers that they shouldn't let anyone shampoo their carpet because those guys used "coconut oil" and it would resoil. Most shampoo guys were using synthetic "soil retardant" shampoo by then, but why let facts get in the way of a good competitive slander?

I haven't heard about that stuff since then.

Yeah she needs new carpet for sure now.

If the wear wasn't enough, that residue will be turning that carpet black in no time. Tell her to save the peroxide.

What if I ran the rotovac 360 without the brush head and an all fiber rinse and just flushed and flushed?
You might get it out.

It all depends on how much of that crap she spread on the carpet.

You might have some success treating it with Prochems citrus pro and water in a hydro force. About 16 ounces to a hydro-force with water. Rinse with a non detergent acid rinse such as browning treatment mixed 50/50 with water in your stock jug. The d'limonene cuts through the foamy residue and acts as a defoamer in your vac hose and tank. The browning treatment mixed will cure most wicking that has already happened.

You're cutting an old-fashioned soap. What cuts soap?



The stuff was invented by a local high school teacher. It didn't sell well because it was a gooey white liquid paste/glob that looked bad. The guy that bought it from the inventor made it into the pink paste they sell today.

I talked with one of the owners many years ago and asked if he couldn't change the product a bit.

"Nope."

Aren't you afraid someone is going to sue you when they can't get it out of an expensive rug?

"Nope.

Come here and look down at the base of the bluff. See that yacht? That's mine. We're making so much money it doesn't matter if people sue. We can close the place up and never have to work again."

They're still making it at the same location.
