Really???  Pouring that nasty water down the kitchen sink after cleaning the carpet?  Hey lady, why don't you make your family a big ol' pot of cholera soup while you're at it?  I have a carpet cleaner, and that stuff always gets dumped out in the yard.  Can't imagine anyone actually pouring it down a sink (unless they wanted to do MORE cleaning), plus there is always the chance of accidently dropping the whole mess all over the floor while lifting it up.   The Rug Doctor ad manages to pour common sense down the drain to make a dramatic point.  And no doubt to encourage stupid people to use their product just like in the commercial....  Ermm

When I shampoo a rug, I take the canister of nasty "carpet water" and either dump it outside or pour it in the toilet. OuchDeadAngryDeadOuch

When I do the carpets I usually pour the dirty water in the sink or toilet, whichever one's closer. It's not that gross, all you have to do is rinse your sink with a hot water spray afterward. After all, it's not like people prepare and chop food in their sinks.

What really sucked was one time I didn't secure the lid properly on the water tank, and about a gallon of brown liquid went crashing to the floor when I lifted it out to empty it.

I must admit Mr. T....I have a Hoover, and the tank goes in the disposal side of the sink. I would not strain my tomatoes in that sink without a good disinfecting.

F*ck the environment.  The environment can suck my dick.  When it comes to stains on my carpet, "air and water" just doesn't cut it.  I want chemicals!!  Beautiful, magical chemicals.  Chemicals that obliterate the stains, fill the air with their fragrant, unnatural parfum, and justify the $80 I'm spending to have the carpet cleaned.

I couldn't care less where she pours her dirty water, I'm just tired of the 'dingy carpet/bright shiny white carpet after one pass' crap. I've rented a Rug Doctor, and used it on carpet that wasn't nearly as "soiled" as the carpet in the spot (pun intended) that I saw. You know what it looked like? Damp, still-used carpet. Now, if the soiling of my carpet had occurred let's say... 5 minutes ago, and by some schmuck walking arond my living room with a lawn seeder full of paprika, then maybe.. just maybe, I'd have gotten results like the lady in the commercial.

Then again, I'd pour my paprika water down the utility tub drain. I don't want that crap where my food gets washed.. just in case I get all preoccupied with carpet de-seasoning and forget to wash out my sink.

^  Yeah, that's my gripe with such commercials.  Not only is the soil unlike any soil I've ever seen in carpets, it's too evenly distributed---as if the corners of the room get as dirty as the pathways or the area in front of the couch.
 
Another gripe is that people with otherwise pristine homes, are letting their carpets get that dirty??  Kinda doubt it.
