I originally named my carpet cleaner SHAG because my grandfather had weird shag carpets in his house and I always wonder how anyone could clean the fluffy carpet fibers without choking the vacuum. Anyhow the name was meaningful to me, but as it turns out in the UK it means something totally different. My bad.
Shag is designed as a general cleaner for carpet, upholstery, and alcantara. It’s water based and slightly alkaline (10-11pH), which increases its cleaning strength, dissolve fats, emulsify soil, and destroy microorganism living in your fibers. Spray it on, let it penetrate for a few seconds, scrub (as appropriate for the condition and strength of the material you are cleaning), then blot dry or wet vac clean. You may need to repeat the process depending on the stain.
TIP: Before you clean any surface hard or, in this case, soft…do your best to identify the cause of the stain. Is it coffee/juice, grease from the parking lot, milk or ice cream from your kid in the back, then it will need to be address with those specific cleaners. Otherwise use Shag, and assess as you go.
1. Always pre-test Shag on an inconspicuous spot first.
2. Spray liberally and allow 20-30 seconds for cloth/carpet penetration.
3. Agitate soiled areas with a scrub brush, scrub pad, or towel to release dirt.
4. Remove "lifted" dirt with a clean microfiber towel or wet vac.
NOTE: Stain and odor neutralizing abilities.
A: Yes and No. "Stains" is a broad word. Some stains yes....others no. Shag is a general fabric maintenance formula. Oil stains, for example, need a specific degreaser (Titan 12) to be released from the fabric. Juice and coffee stains may need a heavier specialized cleaner etc.... It's about diagnosing what the source of the stain is, then using the proper cleaner. Shag is a generalized cleaner for weekly maintenance.Q: Can I use Shag to clean Suede or Alcantara?
A: Yes.Q: Does Shag safely clean leather and/or vinyl?
A: Yes it is safe on these areas, but not designed for this type of cleaning. Use Lather instead.Q: Is Shag good for cleaning cloth seats & headliners?
A: Yes, absolutely.Q: Does Shag have a strong odor?
A: It does not, however it can be effective in removing car interior odors due to the peroxide present.
Amazing product. I ordered it a few years ago just to try it out and have loved it ever since. Time for you to open a distribution in Canada so we can save some shipping costs, but overall a must buy for every home garage or detailing company.
Had some oil-based dressing leaked all over my fabric seats from a takeout bag. Luckily, I had some Shag in my garage and applied it immediately. After about 2-3 applications my seats are as good as new. Highly recommend keeping this stuff on hand for any accidental spills or stubborn stains.
I am so pissed you didn’t make me buy this sooner. Take these famous words and use them. This shit works. Signed Ernie Yeager 3
