My cat is old and has been having alot of accidents on the carpet. I couldn't stand it any longer because everything I tried did not work. I bought a small shampooer from your site at the same time I bought this product. It was advertised along with the shampooer. I was a little confused however when I received both items to notice that the cleaner was not to be used in the shampooer at all. At least it was not mentioned on the bottle that you could put it in the machine. I used it on all the areas needed before I shampooed the carpet with carpet shampoo. It did come out nice however and I am very pleased with the end result.
