Worst product ever!!
This carpet stain remover has completely ruined my carpet. I followed the instructions and now have massive white patches on my dark grey carpet. I would rate it zero if it was an option. This product should be taken off the shelf immediately!!!
I used this on my lounge to remove a patch of stain from the armrest and my carpet near my bed. Both were ruined, vacuum clogged up and the lounge and carpet are now permanently sticky with a white immovable stain.
It's like Santa snow or dried shaving cream.

Attention all carpets!
This product swiftly munted my carpet too. Don't ask me why. Person who recommended it swore by it. But i tried it once - on old coffee stains - following the instructions, and now i have a horrible bunch of discolourations mottling a large area of carpet! Did not remove the coffee, either!

Ruins your vacuum cleaner
Purchased this product from Woolies as we love their carpets. Used as per instructions on tin. Had the new vacuum smoke and became unusable shortly after using the powder stain remover for carpets . Took vacuum to where it was purchased from 4 months ago and their service dept investigated stating that the fine powder from this cleaner ruins the motors, bearings and machine. Emailed Cav Bremworth for their comment and they advised me that not all vacuum cleaners can be used on this product and unfortunately my machine was one of those. The Vac...uum company we purchased the machine from made a very relevant point saying that's why they DO NOT sell powder stain remover for carpets for this reason. Should be more labeling stating the danger to your vacuum if not suitable for this product. Very disappointing and an expensive out come and no result.
Don't use this product
I brought this product to use on 3 stains I had on my carpet, don't use this product. Done a test patch, no larger than bread & butter plate, had emptied my vac before doing a vac up after product dried. Firstly it stinks, had to leave my door open for hours to try & get rid of the smell, its cold here at the moment in Wellington New Zealand. Second after vacuuming up the dry foam, my vacuum indicated it needed to be emptied WHAT. Apparently foam blocks up you vacuum. Read the reviews this product is a no go, don't buy it, I will not attempt to use it on the stains I brought it for. Going to get in the carpet cleaners, rather pay $130 than $9.95. To the ravers about this product, you were just lucky to have a good result

Love this brand & product!!!!!
Been using this product for the past 8 years and love it. Especially the dry stain remover. Works on my fitted carpet that had dark stains that was more than 5 years old. Sprayed it on and dab it and repeat one more time and my white carpet looks like new but it’s actually 21 years old!!! I recommended it to my friends. Thanks for a great product. 5 stars from me!
Left a mark on our carpet and stuffed up our vacuum. Terrible, carcinogenic product, we didn't realise the small print stated this until it was too late. Shouldn't be allowed to continue selling this stuff. Don't risk stuffing up your vacuum.
HORRENDOUS & DANGEROUS
This product is terrible and toxic. It almost destroyed my dyson vacuum and my lungs! Read the fine print carefully. I do not believe this product should be sold in Woolworths. Be very careful using it if you do and don't use a vacuum you want to keep.
Terrible and toxic product
This left white powder all over my carpet and did not remove the stain after two applications. It also completely ruined my vacuum cleaner with a fine white powered all through it. Everytime I turned on the vacuum cleaner it spat out a toxic cloud of white dust. This product states that it has cancer causing chemicals and that you should wear all possible protective gear when applying it. I would not recommend my worst enemy to use this product.
Cavalier dry is truly amazing
This stuff is truly amazing. I thought I would have to get the carpet cleaners but presto cavalier dry worked amazingly so impressed. Did not damage Vacuum. It did stop but once it cooled down it came back on. I also cleaned the filter.

Overpriced, toxic junk.
This product states clearly on the labelling that it is "for dry stains" and an "Advanced treatment for dry stubborn stains on carpets and rugs" including/in particular ( thanks for the handy illustrative graphic) dog vomit and urine. Tried it on dried urine stains on our white carpet and it made ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE at all. It did however give me a headache due to its highly toxic odour. This product is a rip-off. Try vinegar, blotted repeatedly with a towel followed by wool wash with glycerine and a steam clean. Avoid this product.
