    Cleaning Olefin Carpet

    Use Olefin Pre-Conditioner Carpet Prespray / Traffic Lane Spotter for oily soils, especially on olefin carpet. Olefin fibers are frequently difficult to clean because of their tenacious affinity for oils. In fact, olefin (sometimes called polypropylene) is so oily itself that it is the only carpet fiber that floats in water! From the lubricant and metal forming industry, Bane-Clene introduces an answer to this problem.
