Its stable gel formula enables it to stay on the spot longer instead of running down to the base of the carpet. Ideal for gums, putty, bitumen, tar and heavy grease deposits.

  2. Allow 5 minutes contact time while gently agitating.
  3. Blot or scrape gently to remove excess.
  4. Repeat the process if necessary.
  5. Wipe with a damp sponge of towel or extract with clean water.
  6. Brush fabric to align fibres.


Where to Use

Citrus Gel is ideal to use on all carpet types and fibres. Although it’s gel consistency minimizes problems with solvent sensitive backings, care should still be taken.
