Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 Nice floral Scent and softer carpet, Cleans just as well as competitors sans bleach and petroleum distillates , Works in Sonic Duo Cleaner
This carpet cleaner does as intended - cleans the carpet. I used the solution in a Shark Sonic Duo cleaner and followed the cleaner-water ratio listed on the Shark container; if I was using a regular cleaner (i.e. Hoover SteamVac, etc), I wold have followed the cleaner-water ratio on the Simple Green Bottle for Light, Medium, and Heavy Carpet usage.
Having used the Shark carpet cleaning solution, white vinegar and water solution, and Simple Green, Simple Green smells much nicer without being overbearing and aggravating. I also noticed that Simple Green left the carpet much softer than the Shark and a little bit softer than the vinegar-water solution before and after the second part of the Sonic Duo cleaner process (which entails vacuuming up the dried released dirt, particles,etc after scrubbing the carpet). I didn't notice any discoloration with the carpet as well.

Simple green has always been a name you can rely on. An effective product that is worthy of it's name. It has a pleasant smell that is not overpowering like it's all-purpose cleaner counterpart. Its has a good mixing ratio for heavy stains you might want to pretreat before using any homeowner or store rented carpet cleaning machine. It did a good job on a heavy traffic area in our house.

I have wall to wall carpeting and a German Shepherd and an inside cat and even though I vacuum daily the carpeting gets dirty. I tried using the Simple Green carpet cleaner since their cleaning products are high quality and safer for the environment and ultimately my animals and myself and I am not disappointed. My carpeting does look much better, not brand new of course but far cleaner and more sanitized than just daily vacuuming. I do recommend this product.

Simple Green Carpet Cleaner is freshly scented and worked sooo well getting out ground in dirt from my carpet. I used Simple Green in an extraction carpet cleaning machine with hot water and the results are amazing and instantaneous after just one shampooing with two rinses. The large bottle is concentrated so diluting with water is necessary when using in a spray bottle for spot cleaning, but the carpet extraction cleaner that I used does the dilution itself during the shampooing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby A great cleaner for heavy traffic stains!!
We have a high traffic hall area that is carpeted. It gets regular cleaning but the carpet always seems to have a dinged color to it. We used several cleaners and pre-treaters with the same result. I was starting to believe that carpet cleaners we just a way to get your carpet to smell good - without really cleaning any better than just plain hot water.
Well, I finally found one that smells good AND CLEANS!
Simple Carpet cleaner did the job others couldn't. Just to compare, I had some Rug Doctor product still around from our last cleaning attempt.
I vacuumed the area first then taped off the carpet with one side being cleaned with the rug Doctor product and the other with Simple Green Carpet Cleaner. No pre-treating was done.
The Rug Doctor was used first then the carpet cleaner was cleaned and refilled with Simple Green. The results are amazing. The side done with Simple Green Carpet Cleaner was bright as new, the Rug Doctor side was the same dingy result we typically experience.
The photos tell the story. It is difficult to see the difference captured by the camera until I pull up the tape then you can see the obvious difference. Unfortunately the camera just doesn't do justice that you see in person.
I am sold on the Simple Green carpet Cleaner.
One note to consider is that the Simple Green Carpet Cleaner had more suds in the extraction passes. Not really a big deal but you might have to watch the dirty tank on your carpet cleaner as it may fill sooner because of the suds. It does not leave suds in the carpet. The rinse passes were pretty much suds free, it just produced the suds in the agitation and extraction passes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYinOH Best carpet cleaner we've found
I have two children under the age of 5, and a Siberian Husky. My carpets get a workout. Before I had kids we probably had the same can of carpet cleaner for 5 years... now it seems like I use a can of cleaner a month. We've been using the Simple Green carpet cleaner the last few times and like it way more than the other brands we've tried.
It foams less, and it doesn't have a fancy cap with a brush built into it... but it feels like it's more effective at breaking the stain free from the fibers. Other cleaners we have tried have a very light and airy foam feeling, but this has more of a thick detergent feel when you scrub it. We usualyl just cleanup with a sponge and some water, then blot dry.
This is a gallon jug which you can use to refill your Simple Green squeeze pump, or any squeeze pump for that matter, or pour directly into a carpet cleaning machine. We don't have a machine, so I can't comment to that effect - we do all of our cleaning by hand.
I wouldn't go so far as to say this is non-toxic, but it uses chemicals commonly found in a thousand things around your house. The main foaming/cleaning agent is "sodium lauryl sulfate" which is a main ingredient in most shampoos and toothpastes. That gives me a little piece of mind using it around pets and kids.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gmjawx Excellent Carpet Cleaner --- WORKS GREAT!!!
I recently cleaned my living room carpet with the Simple Green Carpet cleaner. My living room at times can seem like a revolving door, with five family members and two large dogs. It sees a great deal of foot traffic on any given day. I couldn't be happier with the results. The carpet was very extremely dirty and riddled with multiple stains. I pre-treated the dirtiest areas as well as the stains, in order to give the cleaner time to work itself in. After pre-treating the stains, I cleaned the entire carpet with my Hoover carpet cleaner. This carpet cleaner couldn't have worked any better. I was amazed at the dirt that this cleaner removed from the carpet. Once I was done, the carpet looked like new. I have used a variety of carpet cleaners in the past and none do as good a job as this one did. Additionally, this cleaner has a very mild fragrance, which is very pleasing and not overpowering. This was an added benefit because my wife and daughter have severe allergies and can often have difficulty with strong fragrances, but that was not the case with Simple Green. They didn't have any issues what so ever. This cleaner may be a little bit more expensive, however it is well worth the investment. I would HIGHLY recommend this carpet cleaner.
