Don’t you love the look of this? Haha. I love all things vintage, and this looks so 1950’s, ’60s to me. doesn’t it, though? Those colors, too :)Even their site looks cheesy 😀 I love it!
So, does it work? Answer: A BIG YES! Shockingly, it does. Lookee here…
Carpet stain of who-knows-what…
It’s a nice thick paste that’s not messy-ish.
Ahh, the panacea ;). While I cannot attest to all the claims on the label, but for spots on carpet — and, by the way, that stain was months old (I know I know) — it most certainly has wizar-ed its way into my heart.
Here’s another thing: This little container is years old! I bought this I-don’t-know-how-long-ago, opened it, used it for something, and haven’t seen it since! It reappeared and I thought I’d give it a shot. I actually despise carpet, and have lived without it mostly; but have some at the moment in a few rooms. Ugh.
Favorite thing about this, too, is “Water Not Required”! Yay. something about dragging out a bucket of water, gloves, a sponge, some wet rags, some dry rags, yada-yada…just a big ta-do. Anyway, obviously this is for spot cleaning. For bigger jobs…
I picked up this Oxo-Brite which, I assume is an offshoot of the famed “Oxy-Clean” product. It’s touted as a laundry additive, but I got it to try for my carpets since the back label …
This is also very good; however, it does produce a bleaching-type action; so it will “whiten” what you put it on, so be aware of that. For example, on a colored carpet or upholstery, it will, itself make a spot that you wouldn’t want. I would be cautious about using this on upholstery other than something that had a white background which needed brightening, and would be prepared to do the ENTIRE piece/area for uniformity.
I tried to get a shot of my carpet, but it doesn’t show up too well in my pics…
Can you see? Well, trust me, there is a very noticeable cleaned spot. I am planning on cleaning my whole carpet, so this isn’t an issue, but, for spot cleaning, I’ll stick to the Wizard and use this for cleaning the entire carpet.
I used it for laundry, and it was so-so. It did brighten, but so far, none of the natural products I’ve tried are comparable to bleach, which is best not used at all.
So to sum up: White Wizard – Excellent at spot removal
Oxy-Brite – So far, great as a carpet cleaner; good choice for a safe “bleach.” As well, the product does say it works on laundry over time.
Okay, on to more important things….
Greeeeeeeeeeeeen Things 😉

- Dreaming was meant for nighttime,
- I live in dreams all the day;
- I know it’s not the right time,
- But still I dream away.
- What could be sweeter than dreaming,
- Just dreaming and drifting away
