Residential Upholstery

December 29 2009 at 3:26 PM

Just wondering what Releasit product would be the best for residential upholstery? DS, Hydrox, Basic or Punch? I wasn't sure if one will stabilize dyes better than another? Thanks Guys!

Never had a problem with DS over thousands of pieces of furniture.

We look after several blocks that have in excess of 150 two bedroom units.

Each unit has 2 x 2 seat sofas and 10 x dining chairs.

Never a problem in over three years using this product & Little Mak;

Hope this helps.

I use & still would suggest Encap Basic.

We don't get it, so have never had the opportunity to try Encap Basic. sad.gif

If you think shipping across the 'states is expensive, don't ask about shipping into Cairns.

When I enquired about 10 cases of Scotchgard from Chicago, freight was more expensive than the product.

Scary, huh. ??

I've been using DS in an Aridex machine with great success in cleaning upholstery. The DS foams and cleans much better than the recommended cleaner from Aridex.
