Folex Carpet Spot Remover Review - Got Out Printer Cartridge Ink Stains From Carpet
Below are quite a few reviews of Folex Carpet Spot Remover from readers, most of them positive, but a few negative as well.
For those not familiar with this brand of stain remover, it's name is a bit of a misnomer, because you can use it on more than just carpet.
In fact, the company says you can use it on "upholstery, clothing, draperies, car interiors, walls, woodwork, floors and more!"
Despite the few negative reviews here on the page, overall, this is one of the most popular carpet stain removers mentioned by readers of this site, over and over again.
The product is designed to remove many types of stains, and is water based and does not leave a sudsy residue, meaning that it doesn't need to be rinsed away.
If you're familiar with carpet stains, you'll also understand that its lack of residue means it does not re-attract dirt, meaning the spot doesn't just come back later.
So, without further ado here are the reviews from readers of this product.
I was removing a broken printer from our office and on the way back into the office I noticed ink spots all over the place.
NO JOKE. I knew the owner was going to have a fit. I called carpet places that remove ink from commercial carpet and I was quoted a minimum of $75 - $100 for only 10 spots.
I know we had at least
20 of them and one huge one by our new printer.
I went to Home Depot and they said they guaranteed Folex spot remover or my money back.
I had already tried for over an hour to remove those damn spots that went all the way to our elevator, and all that happened was that I also had water stains around the original spots.
As soon as I put this stuff on the carpet the spots started disappearing. Just like the disappearing ink when you were a kid. AMAZING!!
I just had to put this piece of advise on this website. I originally went to Home Depot to purchase WD-40, but they advised me to get this instead...Yay!!
It cost me $5.47 and I saved $69.53!!! Yay!!!!(I had to say it again...this stuff really saved my job!)

I even used it on old stains and it took them out.
Just let it sit after pretreating for an hour and then wash.....air dry.
Thanks for sharing how you use this product Marilyn.
Since this isn't really designed for use on clothing, but instead on carpet, I would always caution everyone to be careful when using a product in a way not intended, but it is always good to find something that works!
Three weeks ago, I had a lithium ion battery ignite in my pocket while eating dinner on my sofa. I'm healing up just fine, but in my scramble to stop being on fire, I ended up knocking over my dinner tray and got chicken grease, french fry oil, and ketchup on my recently-installed carpet.
So today, after three weeks of having the stains on the floor, I went to Home Depot to get some carpet tape to patch the carpet and just happened to walk down the cleaner aisle and thought I'd give cleaning it a try.
I grabbed a bottle of Folex simply because it had the plainest packaging, figuring that the manufacturer focused more on making a good product than a pretty bottle.
I did just what the bottle said--I soaked the spots, rubbed them around with my fingers, and blotted them up.
IT REMOVED EVERY STAIN!
In a matter of minutes all of the stains were gone and there's no need to patch! I guess I'll be returning the carpet tape =D
