Love this product, very effective for stains.
Finding it hard to find now in Supermarkets. I have found this to be the best carpet cleaner I have used over the years. Where can I obtain it? Who stocks it? Tried IGA which did stock it, but can't get it anymore. Woolworths don't stock it either. I am really worried it has been taken off the market.
Science project found Long Life to be most effective tomato sauce on carpet stain remover
My daughter has just completed her primary school science project which involved testing a number of products to see which one would be most effective in removing a tomato sauce stain. She tested a number of commercial and natural products and used water as a control. 'Long Life Carpet & Spot' was the most effective tomato sauce stain remover, followed by 'Coles Wool Wash'. 'Cavalier Bremworth' did not perform well, but that is because it is intended for dry stains and tomato sauce is a wet stain. 'Vanish' performed poorly and forget about using vinegar, nail polish remover or eucalyptus oil.
This carpet cleaner is good.
The carpet cleaner is pretty good if you have light stains. For the old person with irritable bowels it is not so good. If you have the runs and can't hold it in and do a big mess on the carpet, this is not the product for you! It seems to spread the brown stuff more if you know what I mean.
Insufficient safety warnings, caused vomiting
My 16yo son had the bright idea to use some of this to clean his carpet without informing anyone. I don't even know where he got it. But he sprayed his whole floor and left the doors and windows closed because it's winter, and even though I've not been in his room I'm now vomiting. There is no warning of this on the bottle and no listing of the ingredients. For the record it is 2-butoxyethanol. Also known as ethylene glycol. So I essentially have a house full of solvent. This is why warnings and ingredient listing is important.
Long life tricky carpet
I used this product based on the company claiming the product is the worlds No 1 carpet cleaner. It got rid of the stain ok, but it left a thick sticky residue and the carpet was course. The stains are now worse as the residue attracts more dirt. My carpet is only four months old!
Long Life Stain Spreader
I agree with the above poster, the instructions are easy to follow, however, when the product only serves to darken and spread a mark, ease of use becomes a low priority.
Furthermore, the pump mechanism of the spray gun is poorly designed and will dispense the product after you cease using it.
As to the condition of the treated carpet, it will look different from the untreated section, it will become coarse even after the treatment has been completed and carpet vacuumed.
The chemicals in the product are harsh both to skin and airways, ...which is fine in terms of contact because you can use gloves but the offensive smell lasts for weeks and you may not be able to use the room for that time. ineffective, negatively impacts stains, damages carpet, packaging dispenses product after use, harsh to skin and intrusive smell
