    I am absolutely amazed by the results I achieved with Formula 90 Heavy Duty Carpet Cleaning Powder! I have tried numerous carpet cleaners in the past, but nothing comes close to the effectiveness of Formula 90. It effortlessly lifts dirt, stains, and odors from my carpets, leaving them looking and smelling brand new. The heavy-duty formula is incredibly powerful and tackles even the toughest stains with ease. I appreciate that it is safe for use on various types of carpets and does not leave any residue behind.
