Genesis 950 Reviews
Genesis 950 is a stain remover like no other. It is a green, all purpose cleaner that works with water to break the bonds of stains and lift them from the surface. It is sold in concentrate form and can easily replace traditional household cleaners. Use it in the kitchen, the bathroom, the garage, on clothes, carpets and more. The uses are endless.
Genesis 950 was first used in 1986 as a cleaning tool in printing plants. It is manufactured by Amerikal Products. Amerikal has been a leader in manufacturing sustainable products for the printing industry for nearly 30 years. Genesis 950 was initially designed to remove ink from roller presses, printroom floors, equipment and clothing. Over time, Genesis 950 found its way from the printing presses into people’s homes. In 2011, it was made available online at In 2014, it was made available on Amazon. Since it has been made available, over 10,000 orders have been placed.
Since 2011, several reviews have been done on Genesis 950. Here is an overview of what reviewers are saying:
Nicole from Pretty Opinionated reviewed Genesis 950 in November 2011. In her review, she used Genesis 950 to remove glue that had spilled on the carpet. She had tried for months to remove the stains, however had no luck until she used Genesis 950. Genesis 950 was able to clean and remove the glue that had spilled on the carpet and dried up.
In addition to her review, there are a few comments that her followers had made in regards to using Genesis 950.
Erika wrote: “OMG!!! I read your review and tried this. AMAZING. Thanks for sharing!”
John wrote: “I tried the 950 Cleaner in my steam cleaner and was amazed how well my carpets cleaned up. I’ve tried everything in the book and they didn’t work as well. I did talk with the manufacturer of the product and they were a huge help on the correct way in using the product. Very Very Happy with this product and it saved me money on replacing my basement carpet.”
April wrote:”I love this product! I wanted to share my before and after photos but don’t see how.”
Nicole also broke down the cost from a mathematical viewpoint to reflect the savings in buying a concentrated product. Genesis 950 is sold in several sizes. For her example, she took a quart at $21.75 and broke it down from a pricing perspective. Genesis 950 is recommended to be mixed 1 part 950 to 7 parts water. This essentially turns 1 quart into 9 bottles of traditional cleaners at the store. By calculating in such a manner, that breaks down to $2.41 per bottle when mixing Genesis 950 and water at the 1:7 ratio.

Marci from The Review Wire reviewed genesis 950 in March 2012. In Marci’s review, she used Genesis 950 in a Hoover Steam Cleaning Machine to remove homemade Play-Dough from carpet. The bright yellow dough was embedded in the carpet and dried up. Genesis 950 easily removed the mess.
In addition to using Genesis 950 to remove carpet stains from kids, Marci also used it to remove carpet stains from a new puppy. In cleaning stains on the carpet from her puppy’s accidents, she makes a statement we hear more than any other “I tried every type of cleaner out there.” Bottom line, when it comes to pet stains, nothing removes the stains and odors like Genesis 950.

Finger Click Saver really put Genesis 950 to the test! Here the big dilemma was cat stains. One of the kittens had vomited on the rug, but there were also more spots found on the carpet. genesis 950 cleaned those stains with no issue. In addition, she noted the importance of Genesis 950 being a deodorizer and disinfectant.
The cleaning tests continued on Finger Click Saver. Other vomit stains were cleaned and before and after pictures were unavailable because when she had gone back to take the after pictures, the area was so clean she couldn’t remember where the stain was. In addition to cleaning rugs and carpets, she cleaned quilts, walls and her stove top. Genesis 950 was able to remove grease stains that had been on her stove top for years. Stains other cleaners couldn’t remove.

Ashley from Closet of Free Samples tried Genesis 950 in July of 2013. Ashley used Genesis 950 for general household cleaner. In her review, Ashley demonstrates how easy Genesis 950 is to use. As a surfactant cleaner, Genesis 950 uses water to make a stain water soluble. When this happens, the stain looses it’s adherence and then breaks away from whatever surface it has been attached too. Once this happens, the stain can then be wiped away. Ashley had recently moved into a new home and had some filthy windowsills. She used Genesis 950 at the 1:7 ratio, spray the mixture on the windowsill and let it sit. Once it broken the stains down, she was able to just wipe them away.

In November 2013, Jennifer from Born 2 Impress went above and beyond in trying out Genesis 950. She owns rental properties with carpets that have been used and abused. In one of the units, they were going to replace the carpet. She took full advantage of the situation by REALLY testing Genesis 950. In her test, she literally poured things on her carpet that typically, you would not want on your carpet. Coffee and chocolate syrup were tested in specific, as well as some old stains that had been on the carpet.
In all cases, she spot cleaned the areas. Jennifer had mixed the 950 and water at the 1:7 recommended ratio for general cleaning. She sprayed the stains and allowed them to sit for a moment, then rinsed. While the 1:7 ratio is recommended for general cleaning, this can be increased as high as a 50/50 mix. In cases of extreme staining, the longer the mixture sits, the more it can break down the stains. For Genesis 950 to remove coffee and chocolate stains at a 1:7 ratio, sitting in the carpet for only a moment, and to be hand cleaned is beyond impressive. Imaging cleaning stains like this with a higher concentration of Genesis 950, or doing so using a carpet cleaning machine!

Bridget at Giveaway Promote reviewed Genesis 950 in January 2014. This is a review is one anyone who has carpet can relate to. While keeping a carpet can be fairly easy with the reminders to take shoes off before crossing, the reality is that just doesn’t always happen. In addition to foot traffic, there is the occasional spill. Over time, the carpet can acquire stains that seemed to come from nowhere. Sometimes, those stains can be lightened with other cleaners, but they still linger, and if it’s your house, you notice it no matter how light it is.
Giveaway Promote used Genesis 950 in a carpet cleaning machine to remove stains from foot traffic, mystery stains, and the remains of a chocolate stain from long ago. By cleaning with a machine, she was able to remove all those stains and give the carpet a fresh, new look.
The Giveaway Promote review also stresses the eco-friendliness of Genesis 950 as well as the fact that it has no toxic chemicals. This again makes it perfect as an all purpose cleaner. She used it on kitchen counter tops and on the range of her oven hood. As she indicated, the Genesis 950 allowed the grease and oil to just slide off.

In February 2014, Rachelle from Madame Deals review Genesis 950. Her home is not unlike others. Children, pets and a bust schedule take their toll on the carpets. Stains seem to appear and never really go anywhere. Rachelle perfectly summarizes everything about Genesis 950. She was skeptical and wondered whether Genesis 950 would work or not. She used it in a spray bottle and spot cleaned her stains. Her results were beyond her expectations, even on year old stains that nothing else could take out.
Genesis 950, as she stated, made her “carpets look like they did when I moved in.” Yes, Genesis 950 is that good!
In addition to posting a before and after photo, Rachelle also posts a series of photos showing how she cleaned.

Brenda reviewed Genesis 950 in March of 2014 for The Small Things By Bre. In her review, she makes a statement that has been echoed by many people who have used Genesis 950. “This has got to be the best stain remover I have ever used.” She gave her instructions for using the product in the review. She used it in the spray bottle (which comes free with 1 gallon orders from the Genesis 950 website). In a spray bottle, she mixed 1 part 950 to 7 parts water, sprayed the area, let it sit, scrubbed, then rinsed.
She used Genesis 950 on carpets and furniture, demonstrating even more versatility in the product. She took before and after photos of the stains she removed with Genesis 950.

In May 2014, Jennifer reviewed genesis 950 on her blog Mommyy Of 2 Babies. She had tried Genesis 950 just in time for Easter! Her kids were dying Easter eggs and some of the dye ended up on the carpet. She had hand cleaned the dye stains with Genesis 950 and they came out with ease. She then went on to clean other stains that were in the carpet from previous incidents. The result? “This is one of my favorite cleaning products to date.” “This stuff is amazing and picks up anything from the carpet.” She included before and after photos from the Easter egg dye.
She also included several photos of the cleaning process. What is most notable is the photos she included of the towel used to clean the stains and how much it had pulled off the carpet.
Mommyy Of 2 Babies also featured Genesis 950 in their Mother’s Day Gift Guide for 2013!

In August 2014, Lisa reviewed Genesis 950 for Chronically Content. Her review continued to show how far Genesis 950 goes when it comes to cleaning. While carpet stains are the hardest stains to clean, everyday cleaning can be made easier with Genesis 950. Because of the ability it has to remove dirt and stains from a number of surfaces, Lisa used the Genesis 950 for many typical household cleaning chores.
One of the most impressive photos she shared was from when she cleaned her tile floors. The floors initially did not appear too dirty. However because Genesis 950 makes stains water soluble, it breaks down any dirt or dust in the area being cleaned. With tile, that dirt and dust can get into the pores of the material. Genesis 950 causes those particles to break down and be lifted. Once this happens, they can be wiped clean. As a result, her tile, which looked fairly clean to begin with, looked amazing. She couldn’t believe what came up on her towel.
She also went on to clean a shower curtain covered with soap scum and water stains, her concrete porch and her cabinets and cupboards. As Lisa said, “This product cleans and cleans deep.”

Bridget from The Simple Moms put Genesis 950 to the test in August 2014. She’s a Mom with 4 kids and a dog, so you know she has her hands full. Like most Moms, she has to deal with stains appearing an nobody having any idea where they came from or what they are. She had one of those stains on her carpet when she tried Genesis 950. Like most people we hear from, the stain had been there for a while and all efforts to clean the stain ended in failure. because of the difficulty she had in the past trying to remove the stain, she had little confidence in Genesis 950. However, once she used Genesis 950 she titled the review, “Start with Genesis 950 and you won’t need anything else.”
The process she used to remove the stain took her no more than 5 minutes. She used the Genesis 950 in the 1:7 ratio, sprayed the area, let it sit for 2 minutes, scrubbed her carpet clean then blotted with water to rinse. It was that easy! A stain that had been impossible to remove was cleaned away in 5 minutes!

Our latest review came in November 2014 from Karen at Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog. Karen used the Genesis 950 for several household cleaning tasks. One of her first cleaning tasks involved her stainless steel appliances. Anyone who has stainless steel knows how hard it is to clean. It seems to pick up every finger print and mark from out of nowhere. When cleaning stainless, it can easily look cloudy, get streaked, or form water spots. However Karen cleaned with Genesis 950 and found it worked better than the cleaners manufactured by the company who made the appliances!
She also used Genesis 950 to clean woodwork – particularly wood windowsills. This particular windowsill happens to be a favorite resting place for her cat. In sitting there, the area easily picks up dust and dander. With little effort, the Genesis 950 removed all the buildup.

Chances are if you have a stain, Genesis 950 can remove it!
