Fabric Sprays for Carpet and Upholstery
Most popular fabric sprays for carpet and fabric are advertised to remove odors without cleaning the fabric. Does this really make sense, spraying something that smells bad with a truly magical product that removes the odor? This is a true testament to the power of intense, convincing, targeted marketing.
The reality is that most of these products “seem” to get rid of the odor, but they actually make the problem worse. Most of these sprays have two parts: fragrance and plastic.
The plastic parts are very tiny molecules that surrounds and “encapsulates” the odor molecules, preventing you from smelling the odor. The fragrance of course adds the benefit of having a clean smell take its place.
But the hidden secret is that is works temporarily; once theses sprays start to break down on the fabric, they attract dirt at a very quick rate, which creates more odor and the need to spray more of this product on the fabric. I find that the homes that use these products smell much worse than the homes that do not use them.
The solution for odor problems in your carpet, upholstery, or other fabric is simply this: It needs to cleaned, washed or replaced.
