Mr. Steamer;  I haven't had 2 hatian cotton couches in over 20 years.  where do you find these relicks of the 80's.  Most of them just have the appearance of cotton but are synthetic.  But we are in different worlds.Guitar

The best I find is the one quart jug with the thumb pump on it and a varied mist spray. You can get them at the garden center CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP!

Don't buy them from KK too expensive.

But find a garden center close...as the cheap ones don't last and with the price of gas.

When you use a Hydroforce you must also spray the pictures on the walls at the same time.

Ted: The ones at the garden center don't last for long......the real ones work much better.....

doug: I use Haitian on most white furniture...50% cotton....

You know when you wet the cotton...you can see the little seeds... because it hasn't been mercerized like a cotton shirt....

Bahamas likes to use 100% natural cotton...the trick is try and clean it as even as possible..... the soap must go on even and it must be extracted even

Mr. Steamer;  Hydro Force!! I would hazard to guess that overwetting is not a problem?  I can see using Hatian Cotton cleaner to stop any browning from the amount of cleaner and the amount of rinse to remove it all.  Have you ever had a problem with a piece of furniture drying like sand paper because of the amount of cleaner?  I guess the Haitian cotton cleaner should fix that.  I think there would be a large amount of wasted upholstery cleaner becaues of over application.  But who am I to question.  If it works all the better for you.Guitar

Doug... you can't get even flow with a spray bottle....you get patchy results... thanks for not flaming me...I have never browned or wrecked a piece of furniture...It's something that can not be taught in a class...I guess it comes with experience

Mr. Steamer:  I have used a hydro force sprayer on upholstery myself.  I don't reccommend it but I have had to use it on very heavily soiled pieces of furniture before when I knew a small sprayer would not cut it. It is a tool of the trade.  Sometimes I would like to trade it in but HA What Can I say.  That hasn't already been said.Guitar

I'm sure I've been in more homes than you have douggie boy...cleaned more carpet than you...cleaned more furniture than you...pull more hose than you...

You remind me of Jed from the Beverly hill billies.....stay in the bush with your black gold....

and I'll stay up here in Berverly

no no no my son... I work on quantities of quality.... I do work in the best and biggest homes all through the GTA... with some of the finest furniture you've ever seen... so don't talk to me about quality...

In your one horse town I'm sure you've cleaned good stuff...but how often.

 

when I leave this game they are going to bronze my wand and hand tool

experience my son experience
