Sebo 0478 duo-P Clean Box
The Quickest, Safest Cleaner for Carpet Stains!
About ten years ago I first discovered SEBO Duo P carpet cleaning powder at a John Lewis store where I had been sent by my parents to buy SEBO dust bags. I never knew that SEBO sold the powder and was intrigued and now its one of the most staple cleaning powders in my home - and still I buy it from John Lewis.
You get a bit more for your money here by buying the service box as the box is reuseable for future pouches of SEBO Duo P powder. However, it isn't an airtight box - and thus it doesn't need to be if you follow the directions in keeping this powder moist - all you do is snip a tiny top right angle at the top of the bag to allow some of the powder to drop out and close up, either rolling over the plastic and sliding the bag back into the box or just use a paper clip to seal the bag and slide into the box. I've had one Clean Box that lasts 6 to 8 months and still moist using this method.
In use, you don't need to use the brush either - for spot cleaning on fresh stains, blot the stain first with water and pat dry out with a dry towel. Then add a sprinkle of SEBO DUO P powder and rub it in with the back of your hand - this stuff is non-toxic and non hazardous to pets and children - and it has never affected my dry skin in 10 years of usage. By using your hand, this powder creams up on the stain in question on impact AND thus use the brush thereafter to comb the powder in with the flow of the carpet's fibres.
Thereafter the stains disappear. Used on red wine, coffee, dog excrement, tea and curry stains - I find Duo P to be a very effective and reliable cleaning powder.
The scent is quite low too - a mix of lemon and some washing powder - and it doesn't hang around too long either, making it perfect to roll into the carpet if you have any SEBO upright and removing the hose to cut the suction. Brushing the powder in, also neutralises heavy smoker's rooms, especially if that smell is forever embedded in the carpet.

great, but ....
I loved it when it was new but returning to the container to remove some stains a few months after buying this product it had dried out. I don't know how to deal with this. In the past I have used a similar substance from Vorwerk. I kept that in a sealed container. When I found this Sebo equivalent I was delighted that it seemed to be in its own air-tight container. Except, it isn't and it is such a waste! Smaller packets would be better, along with the advice that the container is not air-tight.

Excellent carpet cleaner
This is an excellent product. You need to give it time to work and I find it helps to leave it overnight. When dry, vacuum off. In my experience, 99% of marks have been removed including grease and general dirt.

Really useful product
Duo P does exactly what it says on the box. It removes small stains with little fuss and hygenically.
