I purchased the power powder to help lift stains and marks from my cream carpet, I have two messy children and two dogs so you can imagine how bad the carpets get.... The bag is big and does more than one carpet, it can be resealed for another use. I followed the easy instructions and covered my full carpet with sprinkles of the powder and then used a hand brush over the area this helps work the powder into the carpet. The powder is moist but dried within the 20 mins stated on the bag. When dry the moist powder turns into fine talcum powder and you can feel the carpet is dry before vacuuming. I used my bagless vacuum cleaner and the powder lifted well. I could see the carpet was super clean and all stains and dirt had lifted. I did two carpets within 30 mins from start to finish. I am so happy with this new product that I am stocking up my cupboard it really is amazing and my clean cream carpets are like new again. Carpets are left with a fresh scent.
