Carbona Stain Remover Information
Nine Stain Devils Formulas To Choose From

Carbona stain remover is not really one stain remover, but is comprised of nine different formulas of removers, each designed to remove a certain category of stains from fabric and clothing.

Each of these formulas is known as a Carbona Stain Devil, and assigned a number, from one to nine, indicating the broad types of stains it is formulated to remove.

I like the fact that these stain removers do not attempt to claim they universally will remove any stain, but instead the nine formulas acknowledge the true and simple fact that different types of stains need different types of treatments for removal.

These stain removers are designed for washable fabric only, and should not be used on carpet, upholstery or leather.

Where To Purchase Carbona Stain Remover

These stain removers are very difficult to find in stores, at least in my experience. For example, I have never seen them in any of the stores I frequent around my house, such as grocery stores, Walmart, or other big box stores.

*** UPDATE - I did recently see them in my Walmart, and also at the Kroger, but just recently.*** However, I am told that they are carried by a couple of stores, such as some Ace Hardware stores.

You can also find then here, on the Internet. You can almost always find them in packs of six, and sometimes you can also find them sold individually. For instance, you can purchase them through the link below from Amazon.com.
