Carpet and rug stains are unavoidable. Whether it is a pet’s misplaced mess, a set of muddy footprints or a wine glass that fell victim to a wagging tail, carpet stains are the bane of every pet owner.

Most people rely on elbow grease or expensive cleaning treatments to remove stains, which can yield disappointing results. However, Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover makes stain removal a snap for pet owners.

"There's no getting around it, while all types of carpet stains are a pain, pet stains are one of the toughest," said Don Isley, group product director for WD-40 Company, makers of Spot Shot. " Spot Shot works great on any type of stain and is even effective in removing associated odors. We hear 'wow' stories virtually every day from pet owners."

Spot Shot removes stains and spots instantly, without rubbing, scrubbing or vacuuming. It will not leave any rings or residue, and it works on stains regardless of how long they have been there.

Formulated with powerful cleaning agents, Spot Shot works wonders on all types of stains, including cola, wine, shoe polish, grease, ink, lipstick, blood and more.

Spot Shot, the nation's best selling instant stain remover*, differs from its competitors, which tend to be general surface cleaners. Spot Shot is specially designed to penetrate deep into carpet fibers, where it breaks the bond of the stain to the fibers. Once the stain's bond is broken, Spot Shot lifts it to the surface so it can be completely blotted away.

To remove a stain with Spot Shot:

  • Thoroughly blot or vacuum the affected areas;
  • Shake can for two to three seconds, tilt at 60-degree angle and spray stain;
  • Blot treated stain with clean, white, absorbent cloth;
  • Repeat the previous two steps, if necessary, until the stain is gone;
  • Blot area with cool water in all directions to remove residue that might be left behind; and
  • Be sure to read and follow the package directions.

Spot Shot also offers a Large Area Multi-Purpose Foam Cleaner to remove dirt, soil and odors from carpeting in high-traffic areas and throughout the entire room. Designed to clean carpet, fabric and vinyl surfaces quickly and easily, Spot Shot Large Area Multi-Purpose Foam Cleaner deeply penetrates dirt and stains and lifts the soil to the surface for easy removal.
