Removing Odours from Carpets:

Whether a rug or a fully laid carpet, your flooring sees a lot of action from you, your pet(s) and your family. The porous fibres in the pile of carpets make it easy for dirt and other residue – like pet urine – to build up, and lack of proper cleaning can mean your carpet smells over time.

But there’s no need to stress– Vanish can neutralise odours from carpets.

For maximum results, use Vanish Gold Oxi Action Carpet & Upholstery Spot On Spray to target specific areas of odour or staining. In fact, it neutralises odours and removes stain even after just one application!
