I really wanted to justify the money spent
on January 3, 2011
My wife and I are on a tight budget, so I really wanted to feel justified in getting this. Our carpet isn't top-of-the-line, and it could really use a little refresh. My carpet is about 2 years old. We don't have pets, but we do have 2 toddlers that spill everything everywhere.
I divided a 4 ft by 4 ft section of carpet in half and marked both sections with white electrical tape. I followed the directions step-by-step in one section (which includes sprinkling the powder, grooming the carpet, and allowing to dry), and vacuumed the other section in my usual method. Neither section of carpet has any major stains.
I brought my wife in and asked her to tell me which side I used the powder on. She couldn't tell the difference. It did smell nice in the room, but both sides look exactly the same. To me, it seemed the the Zorb side had a slightly darker hue, but otherwise I couldn't tell the difference either.
I do feel a little bit like a sucker for shelling out [...] bucks for a nice smell. I'll include photos of both sections of carpet in the "Customer photos" section of this review. Have a look for yourself. I shot the carpet with a Nikon DSLR and off-camera flash, white balance set to "flash."
