From carpets to upholstery to tough stains, you will appreciate the Bissell Little Green portable compact deep cleaner. When compared to a full-size cleaner, this lightweight cleaner is easier to maneuver for small jobs and spot cleaning tasks....more
I have read many reviews of this product and I must say it appears many are trying to compare this to a Rug Doctor. This is not a commercial carpet cleaner and does what is says it does well. I shampooed my wife's car upholstery and it did the job very well, we have a 14 month old girl and will use it as a spot cleaner also.
That said, don't listen to the negative reviews. This is the best cleaner you will get for the money.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I have had Bissell products before and so far, this one meets my expectations
I needed to buy a spot cleaner for my dogs "accidents" and even though I don't regret the purchase as I have already used it a dozen times, I don't like the fact that unless you use the whole cleaning solution in one cleaning job, the unit will leak. The instructions say to empty the bottle completely before storing but it's inconvenient to refill and empty every time you have to use it. What I am doing is take the cleaning solution bottle out and storing it upright in the cabinet with my other cleaning supplies.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
I had my doubts about how effective this little machine is but am pleasantly surprised at the results so far. I was out of town for a couple of days and I left my cat with everything he needed until I got home but when I got home I saw that he apparently had been sick and he threw up on my carpeting in the bedroom and a very fine wool rug in my living room. Both rugs are cream colored so there was a big brown stain left after I cleaned up the dried mess. I tried the name brand cans of carpet cleaner you get at the grocery store and they didn't do anything so I went to Overstock and saw this little machine and decided to try it. By the time I received it, which was quickly, it had been almost a week so I figured nothing would get the stains out. I assembled and followed the directions and was amazed that it removed the stains and you can't tell that anything happened to the carpets. Looks just like they did when they were knew.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? Very good
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
The only thing that keeps this from being 5 Stars is the spray nozzel doesn't spray on the spot. It sprays on either side of it with very little detergent spraying in the middle. There needs to be a spray hole in the center. So if you are cleaning a small area you need to play around with how to get the detergent on the spot you need it on rather than all around it. The suction seems to be pretty strong although I don't understand how only 10 % of detergent sprayed winds up being sucked up. none the less, it does a terrific job leaving the area fairly dry and more importantly...very clean. I live in an old apartment with typical light beige cheap carpet & I have 3 cats. It's too hard to pull out the large rug cleaner just for quick clean-ups & the Little Green is easier to store away too. Can you tell I love it..LOL !
I wanted something small for quick pickup of dog "accidents" as we have a new rescue Pom who isn't quite housetrained. And, I wanted something easy to use on the stairs. It's relatively light weight and does a very good job of getting most of the water back out of the rugs. Not too noisy either so I don't have to run get the ear protectors like the larger carpet cleaners. The screw that holds the clip for the hose didn't go in right and I could not get it back off, so I just left it alone. It's holding okay for now, but would recommend care when screwing that in. Overall, I am very happy with the performance of this little machine.
I purchased this item to help clean and maintain a very cool vintage cream-colored sofa my spouse and I had found at an estate sale. Due to the color it gets dirty looking very easily even with minimal use. I used this machine immediately upon receiving the package and it was easy to do the minimal assembly and get to cleaning. It troubles me still that despite my best efforts I would only get back out of the sofa about 1/3 of the water / cleaning solution that was applied but it's the end results that to me were strictly "meh". The sofa is noticeably cleaner yes, but oddly the dirt that remains seems more noticeable now and the sofa retained this terrible "streaky" look from pulling the brush/suction across it in long strips. My sofa looks like a washed out tired zebra when I was done. Next day I did a second application/cleaning and I alternated my strokes with the brush and today it looks better from a striped-standpoint but there's still a pretty noticeable amount of dirt remaining as well.
I think if I'd not been overly trusting and threw away the boxes right away I would probably return this. I'm going to say it would probably be more than adequate on more colorful or patterned furniture but on an all-white sofa it's not powerful nor consistent enough to produce great results. I'm bummed. And stuck now.
