Those Woolite (and other brand) carpet/upholstery cleaners in a spray can
are a highly concentrated soap with "whiteners" (some of them) added.
Beware what this does to your carpet and/or upholstery--the stuff gets into
the fabric/fibers, and since it's "waterless," the soap never gets out.
Unfortunately, the unremoved soap is an incredible magnet for dirt--it looks
good for awhile, but the eventually, it gets worse and worse.  Ask a
professional carpet cleaner (the guys with the truck mounted steam cleaning
systems)--I steam cleaned grandma's carpet while she was out of town, and he
guessed by the sudsy soap his machine picked up (she uses the stuff like
holy water).
