We use three test methods to test cleaners based on their application and removal methods, while also following any additional instructions on the packaging.
We tested on stains including red wine, oil and dirt, a mixture of tomato and soy sauce and coffee. We applied the stains to 100% wool carpet squares and let them set for a few days. We took reflectance readings of the carpet squares before and after cleaning to assess how much of the stain was removed. Each cleaner was tested four times per stain. The average of the reflectance readings is calculated.
We apply 5ml/g of cleaner to the centre of the carpet square. The carpet is left for a set time, as specified on the packaging. We then gently rub/blot the cleaner into the carpet with a clean damp cloth for 30 seconds. The carpet square is then left to dry.

Its easy to make up and doesn't leave hard to remove froth everywhere. I prefer it to any commercial product. Use an old towel to dampen and dry and you'll see all the dirt come up onto the towel.
Yes, I recommend this product.

It's good for cleaning dishes.
As a professional carpet cleaner I saw many instances of people using dishwashing liquid based cleaning on their carpet. While it does remove a number of spots and dirt from carpet there is a serious downside. It will leave a sticky residue. So after a short period of time you will have dirt/dust sticking to the spot and have a dirty carpet. Far better to use a wool wash detergent designed for laundry fabrics and only a tiny amount, it rinses out easier than dishwashing liquid.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
