I tried powders and sprays that were had work moving furniture etc to apply to carpets but these did not resolve the problem. The electrical deviced worked really well. Easy to set up, no need to move any furniture, and it resolved the problem within 2 weeks.
We have purchased all of the seasons of the Walton and have had no problems except for season 8. The first European import Season 8 we purchased would not play. Having ordered a second time we received season 6 although the order and invoice clearly stated season 8.
