I am officially old, I can get excited about carpet cleaners, who knew?
Bissell contacted me over the summer holidays and asked me if I’d like to review their Bissell SpotCleaner. Ohh, I thought as I clocked up the stains on the various carpets around the house, there was the tea stain by my bed, the mud stain on the bottom step of the stairs, the juice stain on the rug in the girl’s room and I remembered the glass of red wine stain on the white carpet that happened one Christmas at mum’s. A SpotCleaner could come in really handy if it worked.
I agreed to give it a whirl and was sent through my portable carper cleaner.
Here is a short Vine of the portable carpet cleaner in action on the tea stain, it was really quick to remove. I was amazed and went on a stain hunt after that initial success.
My first thoughts were on the design as it is very compact and neat and tidy. It will be easy to store and it’s not too heavy to lug around the home whilst in action. Top marks for design.
My second thoughts went to the practical side, how easy would it be to use? Very easy, stupidly easy. There are two tanks, one for the clean water and products the other to suck up the dirty water from the carpet.
The clean water side is very handy as it has marked levels for the water, and the two products used to clean. It really couldn’t be easier and you fill it using hot water from the tap. There are two levels as well, one for small stains and one for large stains.
My first attack was on the tea stain by my bed. It happened one weekend when I was being lazy and brought two cups of tea up to enjoy under the covers with a book, we’ve all done it. I go to pass over husband’s cup to him and ‘Oops’ there went some tea on the clean carpet. Bum.
Muddy or dirty shoes in and out of the house are another easy stain to clock up especially with children around.
The dog has added his own paw marks and then there was the permanent black marker stain but I don’t think ANYTHING will get that one up.
I filled up my machine which was really quick and easy to do, plugged it in, turned it on and started to spray using the trigger on the nozzle at the same time scrubbing lightly with the brush provided. I watched the stain disappear in front of my eyes. Magic.
I moved around the house with ease on a stain hunt and thanks to the long lead was able to cover quite a distance.
The only stain it didn’t get up (which isn’t surprising) is the permanent black marker. Thanks girls for that one!
I am very impressed. The Bissell SpotCleaner comes in at £129.99 and includes cleaning product too. It has tackled the stains we had and I shall definitely be recommending it my family and friends.
