About Stream Clean
Stream Clean is a carpet cleaning solution that claims to clean any type of stain without having to scrub the stain. It even claims to be able to get rid of old, set-in stains without any scrubbing. It also claims to eliminate the accompanying odor.
The product is from Plymouth Direct, based in North Wales, PA. It is sold under the “As Seen on TV” brand.
How Stream Clean works
Stream Clean uses “enzyme action” to eliminate stains and odors. All you need to do is spray it on a stain until the stain vanishes.
Reviews online are mixed, with people claiming that the product works as advertised while others say it works on odors but not stains and yet others saying it is effective on new stains but not set-in stains.
A video review on YouTube not only said the product didn’t work, but also pointed out that, despite what the TV commercials say, the directions on the can specifically direct you to leave Stream Clean on the stain and then blot it with a towel. This is exactly what the Stream Clean TV commercials tell you that you will be able to avoid doing with this product.

I think it works
After years of trying every single pet stain eliminator, I think I have found one that actually works.
I sprayed heavily on a very bad odor spot and a week later, I still don't notice any return of odor, and as we all know, the smell usually returns within days after a cleaning treatment. When I say the urine odor was bad, it's the kind that you can smell from three feet away.
Now after a week, I'm on the ground with my nose in the carpet sniffing, and I still cannot smell anything. Again, I used a heavy amount on the spot, so maybe the bad reviews are because they didn't use enough of the product?
And don't forget that urine spreads, dime-sized stain on the carpet is more like a beach ball size underneath in the padding, so be sure to spray a large circumference around the original stain.
The scent is similar to that of the spray foam glass cleaner, so it's actually a clean scent.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

False Advertising. Stream Clean was a waste of time and money
Used Stream Clean on two different carpets for dog pee stains. It didn't work as represented on either carpet, in fact, it may have sealed-in the stain on one. I was able to remove the stains on one carpet with Resolve, and am still working on the other. Try Resolve first, it's less inexpensive and worked for me.
Don't fall for the two can offer from Stream and Clean. If you must, just buy one because it may not do anything other than waste your time.
I give Stream and Clean the worst rating which in this review is One Star. It deserves a No Star rating.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We bought Stream Clean after seeing a TV Ad. We have 2 dogs. It worked better than any product we have ever used. We are going to buy more. Thanks STREAM CLEAN.

It works, I have used everything. This is the only product that I have found to work - who cares If you have to scrub a little? The end result is no stains!

Don't buy this product or hype.
I bought this product with the hope that it would eliminate stains both old and new that my dog had left for me. When watching the commercial, it looks very simple to use without any scrubbing needed and that it eliminates the stain completely and that you can see the stain go away with a black light.
Prior to using this product, I used a black light to find all the stains on my carpet, I was surprised to find many stains my dog had left that I was unaware of. This product did not remove any of my pet stains but was good at removing other stains such as coffee and dirt.
I would have returned this product but the cost of shipping it back was not worth the loss that I had incurred.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friendView all 1 commentsHide comments

What about the smell? Did the urine smell go away?
