How to Open Stain Solver Bucket Lid

How to Open Stain Solver Bucket Lid

Watch this short video that shows you how to open the wonderful gamma-seal lid that comes with the 5-gallon pail of Stain Solver.

We use the gamma-seal lid because people love how easy it is to open and reseal as they use Stain Solver.

#EasyHack – If you want to open the lid FAST, pull counterclockwise on one of the sections of the cross with the hand that’s NOT holding the hammer. As you pull on that leg and the hammer taps another one, both counterclockwise, you’ll have the lid open in less than 10 seconds.

Clean Quilt Stains


Yellow mysterious quilt stains were bothering Jani Bennett who lives in Turner, Oregon.

Clean Quilt Stains

She tried all sorts of cleaners and none worked. Then she discovered Stain Solver.

“Gosh I discovered Stain Solver is a great product. I’m a huge quilter and for some reason my stark-white quilts were having yellow stains on them just out of no where. I tried every thing to remove them nothing worked. I found Stain Solver and it took the stains right out. So if any one asks about quilts, it worked on mine. Thank you! Jani Bennett”

Here are photos Jani sent to me:

Clean Coffee Stains in Carpet Using Stain Solver

Clean Coffee Stains in Carpet Using Stain Solver

It’s very easy to clean coffee stains in carpet.

Watch the video below showing how I use it to clean floor tile grout.

It’s the SAME PROCESS to clean coffee stains out of carpet with one exception:

Instead of scrubbing the carpet, you just BLOT the stained area after allowing the Stain Solver solution to work.

Clean Coffee Stains Success Tips:

  • Use hot tap water to mix the Stain Solver solution
  • Stir the solution for no less than two minutes to ensure all powder is dissolved
  • Wet the carpet fibers well and allow the solution to work for up to 15 minutes
  • Blot, rinse and blot again
  • WARNING: Do not use Stain Solver on natural wool carpeting that’s never been dyed. It will discolor the wool.

Spot Cleaning Advice:

When you spot clean carpet using Stain Solver, it’s so powerful it will deep clean the carpet.

You may think the Stain Solver has faded the carpet or bleached it out.

Look at the carpet under furniture that’s never been walked on or inside a closet to see the carpet’s original color.

The Stain Solver will make the spot you clean look like that.

If the carpet is lighter in color in the spot you cleaned, you’ll have to pretreat the entire carpet with Stain Solver and shampoo as you would to normally clean it.

Expiration Date for Stain Solver

Expiration Date for Stain Solver

The expiration date, or shelf life, for Stain Solver is a moving target.

expiration date stain solver
Here’s the 2.2-pound size in a stunning clear 32-oz jar.

Stain Solver can have an indefinite shelf life if you keep the product cold and the lid tightly sealed.

Heat and humidity degrade Stain Solver. If you store Stain Solver outdoors in the hot Arizona sun, it can degrade in just a few months.

If you store the Stain Solver powder in a freezer, it can last for many years.

Store Stain Solver in a cool dry location for the longest shelf life.

Prevent Caking of Stain Solver

Humidity in the container can caused caking. The water vapor in the air can begin to react with the active ingredient in the container.

If you open a container of Stain Solver and you live in a humid climate, put the open container of Stain Solver in your refrigerator with the lid off. Close the refrigerator door and come back an hour later and put the lid on while the container is still on the refrigerator shelf.

This will ensure dry air is capped inside the container instead of the humid room-temperature air in the rest of your home.
