I first discovered Folex thanks to this job — the dozens of amazing before and after photos
on Amazon really sold me on it! — and have used it dozens of times over the past four years with great success: on both blueberry smoothie and dog poop on rugs, when I dropped hummus on my sweater, for multiple drink spills on the couch, and, as illustrated above, when I accidentally melted a chocolate chip into my favorite fuzzy pillow and discovered it like, three days later.
The directions ask you to spray it on liberally, gently massage the stain with your fingers to help the liquid grab a bunch of the stain particles, then use a paper towel to soak it up. For the pillow example, I repeated the spray-and-soak process about three times, and now you can’t even find where the stain was in the first place! That’s why I have two after pics here — when I came back after it had dried to take a pic, I literally couldn’t find the spot the pillow had been stained again, so wanted to show y’all both sides for proof.
I will say it’s not the best for pet accidents, because those need an enzyme to help really get rid of the smell (like the popular Rocco & Roxie cleaner), but it definitely works in a pinch. And I still — luckily! — haven’t needed to try it out on red wine, nonfood grease, ink, or makeup stains, all of which it claims to clean. But I couldn’t recommend it more for all the random food and drink spills that are bound to happen in life!
