Carbona 2-In-1 Oxy-Powered Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner is an upholstery cleaner that is in a nifty looking 27.5-ounce bottle that has a scrub brush on top. I’ve heard many good things about this cleaner in the days before this review, so I decided to check it out. After all, I really wanted to find out if this product was all marketing and hype or if it was really one of the best upholstery cleaner products on the market today.
One of the things that I really like about this product is that it has a scrub brush that can be mounted on top of it. This scrub brush really does a good job of getting the cleaning solution down into the stain. However, this brush helps with cleaning up messes, it isn’t designed as well as it should be. You have to be careful not to remove the foil when you attach it, so be sure to follow all directions. If you don’t, then the product’s lid could leak in between cleanings—which is what happened to me as I used it over the course of a week.
As far as the types of fabrics you can use this product on, I found out that you can pretty much use it on any fabric that you could clean with any water-based cleaner. Many sofas have a rating that shows how you can clean them. You can safely use this product on “W” coded sofas but not on “S” coded sofas (that’s dry clean only).
All things considered, I think this is a really great upholstery cleaner as long as you use it on the right fabrics. It’s powerful and gets the job done. If you aren’t sure if it can be used on a particular fabric, then be sure to spot test a small corner of it. Do that and I think you’ll like this cleaner.
