Below are the cleaning hints and mixing directions (how much water to put to ADVANAGE 20X).
We also offer videos showing how to mix and apply the diluted 20X to tackle the most frequent cleaning chores.
Glass/Mirrors To 32 ounces of water, add one (1) cap of ADVANAGE 20X. Spray on the surface, massage it in, then buff it dry. NOTE: To avoid streaking, wipe as you spray, and never clean in direct sunlight.
dividers (Ink, Crayons, Pencil) Spray ADVANAGE 20X on wallpaper and wipe away with a dry cloth. Wipe down the wall panels with the same solution. Use a non-abrasive scouring pad to remove grease accumulation.
Spray ADVANAGE 20X on a place and let it sit for 30 seconds. Wipe dry with a towel after rinsing with clean water. When utilizing a carpet wash machine, first vacuum the area to be cleaned, removing any loose particles. Using one (1) cup of ADVANAGE 20X for every five (5) gallons of water, clean the carpet, paying special attention to extremely dirty areas. Allow drying before vacuuming again. To clean without a machine, use the same processes as above, removing soil with a soft bristle brush, rinsing, and wiping clean with a towel.
NOTE: Before cleaning, test the fabric for colorfastness and bleeding. For spot cleaning, spray a 20:1 solution over the soiled area and massage with a dry cloth in a circular motion. Use 15:1 for tough stains and leave for 3 to 5 minutes. You may help yourself by rubbing in a circular motion with a nylon brush. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a towel.
For set-in stains, use a ratio of 2:1; test before applying. Spray 20:1 on areas or the ring-around-the-collar for pre-washing. Allow it to stand for 30 to 60 seconds before rubbing with a nylon brush or cloth. Add to your usual washing machine load. You may also mix in 1/2 cup ADVANAGE 20X in your wash load. For new ink stains on clothing, lay a towel below the stain and, after spraying straight onto the towel, massage in a circular motion with the sprayer’s nozzle over the stain. Spray the affected area immediately and allow it to stand for five (5) minutes for old stains. Add to your usual washing machine load.

Please keep in mind that cleaning tools like scouring pads, nylon, and wire brushes are indicated throughout the preceding instructions. The white scrounge is a non-abrasive pad intended for use on delicate goods or materials. The green scrounge is an abrasive pad whose principal application is to remove persistent stains or heavy buildup from non-fragile materials or surfaces. Nylon brushes have soft bristles that are ideal for removing small stains and reaching hard-to-reach spots. A wire brush is a steel abrasive brush that is used to remove heavy buildups and stains from hard surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, and so on.
NOTE: Improper use of these goods may cause scratches and/or damage to any surface, fabric, or material. Use with great caution at all times. When applying our ADVANAGE 20X on sensitive materials like upholstery, carpet, silk, or leather, always test for colorfastness and bleeding in an inconspicuous area first.
