Can you use Rug Doctor cleaner fluid in a Vax?

Can I use Rug Doctor cleaner fluid in my Vax cleaner and what would the cleaner/water ratio be?

Yes, it can be used in a Vax, Bissell, Hoover or any leading brand of carpet washer.

  1. Shake bottle gently before using.
  2. Mix 25ml of Rug Doctor Carpet Detergent per 2 litres of hand hot tap water (lukewarm if cleaning wool/wool mix carpets)
  3. Pour into the clean water tank of your machine following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Do not use water hot enough to scald. Use lukewarm water on wool carpets.

Apply as directed in your machine’s User Guide. Always avoid overwetting carpets and/or upholstery
Test for colourfastness with a properly diluted mixture in an inconspicuous area. Wait 10 seconds then blot with a white cloth to check for colour transfer.
Not recommended for use on non-colourfast materials.
