Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.
When my Mom was in hospice in my home for about 5 months, the electrical cords in the room had been taped to the cream colored berber carpet with duct tape. Months after she passed away I used a product called Resolve to remove the duct tape, which was about a 4 foot section. However, the gummy residue would not come off. I tried using paper towels and a hot iron - didn't work. I had a prominent Steam Cleaning service try and nothing. So I lived with it for another couple of years.
Last year I read something about Thieves and carpets, so I tried it. I used the Thieves Cleaner in the normal proportions (2oz to 32 oz water) and sprayed it on, let it sit for about 5 minutes and scrubbed, using a cloth - it WORKED! I did this 2 x on the carpet. I then rinsed it by blotting it later with plain water since Thieves has a caramel color to it. I also had a coffee stain and did the same thing and it all came out.
I am absolutely sold on Thieves products from Young Living!! The best part of all this is that there are "NO CHEMICALS OR TOXINS". Why would anyone want to use an industrial strength product when nature can do the trick!! I love it, love it, love it !!!
