It CAN stain....,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ADMS Anti-Allergen Spray 32 oz. (Misc.)
I sprayed on my carpets and some large items. You can't really say if things like this "work" or not but my allergist recommended this one. Just because I don't see a dramatic diff in my allergies doesn't mean it does not work, I may just be reacting to something else. However, the room does seem less stuffy when I walk in, almost seems to "clean" the air....but that could be in my head. Or it could be because the room was scrubbed from top to bottom and is practically sterile now. Anyway, it ***CAN STAIN***. I sprayed on my bedding and then tossed the comforter in the dryer....spots where the mist was heavier (droplets). The color is creamy yellow the stains are brown. Teh comforter is machine washable so not sensetive to water. I've tried everything to get the stains out and also it smells funny where the stains are...almost like the heavier concentration reacted with the heat in the dryer or something because it smells odd...hard to say what but you can only smell if you put your nose to it but it only smells where the stains are. I washed twice and used a number of stain remover options but still stained... My carpets are very very light and nothing happened to them so I am at a loss. I called hte mfg who said it doenst' stain but clearly it does have the ability to stain. She said maybe it reacted with something that was on the comforter but anything that is on the comforter could be on the carpet or anything else which means it can stain but I am wondering if it reacted with the heat somehow because it was only where the heavier droplets landed. It was very odd. I will still use it on the carpets and dark colored items but I will just be sure the mist is FINE and won't expose to heat like on a hot day or in a dryer right away.
I still use this on my carpet but just bought a allergen wash for my bedding. The stains are still there but I was able to scrub enough to make them barely visable and also flipped the comforter so the stains are tucked under footboard. Anyway, I found that I do sleep better when I use this combined with the allergen detergent for my bedding. I also spray this spray in my home office where I work +40 hrs a week and found I can work much longer before I get stuffy. I bought a gallon of this stuff and use it now once a month on my carpets in my bedroom and den/office but I haven't been brave enough yet to use on the common areas of the house which have the same white colored carpet but more expenseive carpet. It hasn't stained anything other than my comforter but it does seem to work on my allergies.
