I've using this carpet cleaner for the past 15 years. It is easy to use, dries in 2 hours, and leaves the carpet clean and smelling very nice. I have a light sand color carpet. I use only a broom brush to sweep the cleaner into the carpet and then vacuum when dried. Too save $$, I buy the 12 lb box, and have enough cleaner for 2 years. I only use half box for yearly cleaning. Be sure to seal the unused portion tightly. Buying the cleaner with amazon.com was $10 cheaper than getting it at my near by distributor.

Finally, I received the cleaner on time from the seller.

Family cleaning Biz over 29 years. We use several methods. Host is very good for light soiling. Fast and ready to use. We use Host or Capture on Custom, Oriental or Persian rugs that cannot be washed or solvent based dry cleaned.

Very "gentle" but effective. Great job on surface clean of carpet. A "carpet rake" really helps. Also a nice mild sent.
Buying more.

This is an excellent product for home owners and very easy to use. Not harmful to carpet as
this product does not leave the carpet wet.

Tried it for the first time in our minivan that was relatively clean but had some spills here and there. Being an environmentally friendly product, I had great hopes for this. I pre-treated the carpet with the Host Pre-Clean Carpet Cleaner, followed the directions (used a brush in circular motion to spread the powder into the carpet), waited for about an hour, then vacuumed. While the carpet came out somewhat clean. It did not clean thoroughly. Yes I did not use the spot remover (which brings up another issue with the Mfr. - see below) so I don't hold the Host powder responsible for not completely getting rid of the spots but the overall cleaning was so so. I am trying to use the spot remover for the second round...

Product availability / distribution:
It would behove the company to ask why their product / add-ons are not so easy to get! According to the company website, in my locality, there's only two shops that carry the items (officially anyway), one of them has moved so I can't locate. The other one does not carry all the items. I go to Amazon to find the spot remover : processing takes additional 3-4 days (in contrast to Amazon's speedy availability and Prime shipping) - that's from an Amazon affiliate but shipped by Amazon. Amazon itself is out of stock. Another merchant ships only standard - 3-5 days, yet another charges $20+ for expedited shipping! - While I don't think Racine is responsible for all this, the company should look into its distribution policies and make it VERY convenient for its customers to obtain the product and accessories at least at Amazon? Finally, today I see a merchant at Amazon who ships the product expedited at a reasonable price. So I'll give it a try but the whole experience has left me not too excited about the product, it's effectiveness and ease of availability of product / add-ons. I might try Capture if this does not work.
