There are several other cleaning products we do love though too! Genesis 950 is an amazing cleaner. When used in a carpet cleaning machine, the results are astounding. Our favorite steam cleaner is the Bissell Pro Heat 2X. The machine is extremely easy to use. It has the general shape and feel of an upright vacuum cleaner. What we really like about this machine is the ease of the compartments. There is a compartment for fresh water, a compartment for cleaning solution, and a compartment for returned water. The compartment for solution sits in the back of the machine and detaches for easy fill up. When placed in the machine, you can control how much solution is used for your cleaning by changing the setting of the machine. It allows you
Here's a Before & After of a carpet cleaned with the Bissell Pro Heat & Genesis 950:
When cleaning the bathroom, one of the best things to use is the Scotch-Brite Easy Cleaning Pad. The Pad is made by 3M, so immediately you know there is quality there. While the pad compliments itself as being a sponge you can use without any other cleaning products, we use it with Genesis 950. When Genesis 950 is mixed 1 part 950 to 7 parts water, and then sprayed on a surface, it breaks down the stains and lifts them from the surface. This makes cleaning the bathtub, toilet, sinks and stove tops a breeze. Naturally, once broken down, the stain needs to be wiped off. This is where the Scotch-Easy Cleaning Pad comes in. The sponge has 2 sides. One side is textured, and the other like that of a traditional sponge. Generally, Genesis 950 will break down things you normally have to scrub to remove. If the buildup of the stain was too heavy that it did not all break down, the textured side of the Scotch-Brite pad gives you that extra bit of friction to scrub off whatever you are cleaning without damaging the surface. Once the stain is ready to be lifted, simply flip the pad and wipe it down with the sponge side. Brilliant! While we do love this sponge for it's duality, our only complaint is that the textured side can deteriorate quickly if over saturated or bent repeatedly.
Gloves come in handy when cleaning. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, you do not want your skin touching some of the chemicals in cleaning products. Many cleaners have damaging properties. Genesis 950 does not have anything that will damage skin, but some people prefer to wear gloves because of how Genesis 950 works. Being a surfactant cleaner, it can draw the oil from your skin, promoting dryness. Gloves however are not needed. Another reason gloves come in handy is based on what is being cleaned. Naturally if you are cleaning a toilet, or bathroom area, you do not want to be touching dirty surfaces. Gloves
