My husband and I originally bought this machine to clean an area on our couch where our dog urinated. Our couch is made of microfiber, and had stained with the products I tried to use to get it out by hand. This product was amazing, the smell is gone, and our couch looks brand new! We live in a rental home and have carpeting on our stairs and upstairs area. There were horrible stains on the carpet when we moved in, I mean large brown stains on light blue carpet. We were told it had been cleaned professionally. After cleaning the couch I had some solution left over and decided to see what it would do on the carpet stains. I have no idea how long the stains have been there, but this machine took them out! There is still some slight discoloration, but at least if people come in our home they would never know. I was amazed! I just did the stairs today, I'm so glad all the horrible stains are gone! I don't know if it really was professionally cleaned, if so, maybe the carpet cleaner should get this product instead! The only thing I don't like is that the hose is a little short. Also, the solution comes out in a very wide line, which is great on carpet, but got everywhere when i was doing the couch. Oh well, it still works great. Reccommend to anyone. We have pets and works great. You don't need to spend $20 extra for the pet version.
It works just fine. Have had mine now for over 4 years. I first bought a Dirt Devil handheld with the rotating head. It had almost no suction; and the suction it did have blew right out the side vents. This thing works just fine though.
I purchased this Green Machine to replace my old one, which lasted about 5 years! We have two daughters and two dogs, so we use it often. The dirty water tank can be hard to clean, but we rinse it out after each use. Overall, it is a great product! This one has a feature that our old one didn't have, it has a lever that locks the handle in the cradle, so it won't pop out. It just keeps getting better!
After reading the reviews on this product for months, I finally broke down and bought one! I am so happy that I bought it - it's a great product. The first weekend I had it, I cleaned my couch and all the car mats in both of my cars! The size is perfect for lugging it around the house (or even outside to do carpets in cars). I know other users have complained about the spray from the nozzle, but I found it very easy to control.
I added a picture that I took after I cleaned two of the mats in my car. You can obviously tell that this machine is doing its job!
Thanks for a great product! I would recommend it to anyone!
It works better than I expected spent an hour when it came home cleaning all the little spots on the floor that had been there about a year from my three year old. everything came right out. then i accidentally spilled all the dirty water on the floor because i didn't read the directions and it came right up off the carpet, that's when i fell in love with it. It got everything right out even though the water was black & dirty. Bought because we have lots of carpet & a potty training toddler. LOVE IT! Definitely would recommend!
I have actually had this product for about 5 years. I use it often and have never had any problems with it. As an experienced user I thought I might offer some advise.
I rarely use the specified cleaner in it. I use laundry detergent most of the time. I have however used pine-sol and other similar cleaners. Use common sense and use what the cleaner bottle recommends. I use the green machine on my carpets, (shag carpet) my furniture, and my car upholstery.
The only thing I would like to change is: the dirty tank, where the dirty water goes, stays dirty. There is no way to open it up and clean it, all you can do is empty it and run clean water through it. Aesthetics aside, it is well worth the purchase.
Remember to screw the lid on the clean water tank very tightly and occasionally take the hand-held part off to clean it; I soak it in warm soapy water ever month or so.
I hope you enjoy this wonderful cleaning tool as much as I have!
bought this today, and was able to use it right out the box, i didn't have a screw driver to attach piece on back. it come with a trial size solution which smells great.i love the fact the the hose and the two containers are clear...your able to see what gets sucked up,it show how much water/solution you have left and on the other container it show all the gross aftermath of your dirty carpet.it a little heavy to carry around, being 7mos preggo i guess.
i cleaned our clean in our room, my husband is a bad smoker and has left ashes stain on our carpet,plus we have a toddler who is careless and messy. i was amazed on how much it cleaned, the water that i dumped out was black(twice).i had to stop after two times cleaning, my arm was getting tired..i still have more carpet to clean. overall this is the best/greatest steam cleaner have ever owned.
please do buy, you will be amazed on the power and suction of this little green machine. no problems so far. beats renting a steam cleaner.
I bought this to clean my wifes' car with as she was threatening me with having it professionally cleaned $. I didn't expect much from a little machine like this but man,.. what a surprise! After a dry vac, I fired up the little green... it worked great and sucked up really dirty stuff. Grab a scrub brush for the nasty stains and then hit it again with the green machine... it will get the dirt up!
Very easy to use, easy to clean, no leaking tanks, no spills. I used the shampoo that came with it and it worked great. For the money,.. it is a great value.
My dog has been sick and decided to leave a surprise on the stairs. It was black!. I have brand new brown carpets. I went and bought this last night after reading the reveiws. Brought it home and set in for a long night of cleaning the stains. We filled it and sprayed the solution on it and let it set for 3 or 4 minutes. It only took 15 minutes to get the black up. It loks like it was never there. I am absolutely amazed. This little machine is a miracle worker. I will definately recommend to anyone!
We purchased this in order to get out pet stains/odor and although it works GREAT at getting out stains, the odor stays (unfortunately we have a cat that will #1 in the litter box but not #2 in it). We even used the detergent that was for pet stains and odor and it still sticks around! It even gets out the oil stains from my husbands work boots! If you want to get out stains for spills it works great also! Even kool-aid comes out of our tan carpet! My ONLY complaint is that it doesn't remove odor from them going #2 (we think a better detergent needs to be made). It's light weight and easy to carry around to your spots. My only suggestion is that you follow the directions because the temperature of the water IS a major factor in how good it works. This is NOT a steam cleaner so don't expect it to do that kind of job! Go slowly over your spots because it will suck out more of the water the slower you go. It will only be damp if you go slowly!
After the shock from an upholstery cleaner quote, I purchased this to clean myself. I did my research and found many good reviews. It came promptly and "spring cleaning" got underway. I was initially disappointed and thought about returning it because I didn't feel it had enough suction when extracting the water (more on that to come). What was extracted was filthy and disgusting, so I kept at it. Ended up doing my family room and living room furniture, bar stools and dining room chairs and was amazed at how black the water was. The upholstery looks great and my dining room chairs look almost new (they're 25 years old). What I figured out was my family room micro-fiber furniture has a much denser weave and my living room furniture, which required more pressure when extracting the water and several times going over it. Over the next few days I did my mother's furniture and got all the cat odors out, too. Best thing is, it was 1/3 of the quote from the cleaner, and now I have it for all little spills.
I just bought the Bissell Little Green and it works Wonderfully! I actually went to buy another steamer, but when I got to the store I realized how large it was and would be to hard to carry up and down my two flights of stairs. I started looking and liked how small the Bissell Little Green was. I have a puppy so I purchased Bissell pet odor and stain remover also. When I got home I pre-treated the spots I wanted cleaned and ran out to do a couple of errands. When I got back home 30 mins later I assembled the machine (which is super easy) and tried it out. I am so pleased at the results. I was very skeptical because it is so easy to carry around and not very heavy. It works! The price is very reasonable, and I would recommend it. I am actually purchasing another one as a gift for my sister.
This is my second. I bought the first one in1996. After using it, I got each of my daughters one. They are still using their original one.
I bought a BEIGE lounge chair and what was I thinking? Well, it was only a week old when I was watching tv and spilled my drink on it. Well, I had a Green Machine years ago, so I was off to the races! I bought this little baby and my chair looks brand new again! If you spill something on your chair (like me) or rugs, the Green Machine is what you are looking for. It's a lot better than the machines that you can rent. Now if you are looking to do a large area, this machine won't do that but for anything thing else it's great. Wal Mart had the cheapest price around for the same machine. I always check Wal Mart first but always seem to find that Wal Mart has the best prices.
Based on prior reviews, I decided to give this product a try. I have an older cat who is prone to accidents now and then. I live in an apartment, and my carpet was starting to look pretty bad. I was afraid the manager might make me replace it. I had used carpet cleaners in the bottle to spot clean, but the spots remained. I gave this little machine a workout today. My carpet looks amazing! The spots are gone and you can't tell anything had happened. It is a light beige so it shows everything. I also did right inside my front door which had alot of traffic soil. I am so impressed at this little workhorse. The spray is a bit wide but you get used to it pretty quickly and can adjust how you hold the brush to regulate this. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to spot clean their carpet. I couldn't believe how dirty the water was in the collection tank. I won't worry so much now if my cat has an accident or gets sick on the carpet. With this little warrior, it will be clean in no time!
I bought this to use on the stairs, in the car, and on small pets/kids/husband stains, because my upright doesn't have a hose. Although it costs as much as my upright, I couldn't be happier with it's performance. It does have a wide spray range, but I remedied that with a $1 spray bottle. I mix the solution in the bottle, and I'm ready to go. Since this isn't for doing large areas it's not a big deal to do it this way.
We bought this product today, (Bissell Little Green), and I got home and was so excited to clean my couches. I got the machine out and read the directions, both easy tasks, and thought that this was gonna be a piece of cake. WRONG!! The machine itself is easy to use, and fairly light to tote around, BUT the spray mechanism on this thing is RIDICULOUS!!! You pull the trigger to spray the cleaner and DEAR LORD, its sprays out at least 3 feet on each side!! I tried to spray it closer but if you hold it closer it just SOAKS that particular area. It took me longer to clean up the surrounding area of my living room from that over-spray than it did to clean the whole couch. Good grief!
Im taking mine back tomorrow. There has to be something better out there than this.
Oh and FYI...I called Bissell to tell them about the overspray and to ask if I was operating it correctly, just to make sure, and they said "Yes, that is how it is supposed to spray." Their only suggestion was to "spray the area closer and not further away." Ok, whatever, that didnt work either. And I asked if they made any other small portable cleaners that did not spray out so far, and they said "No, they are all made that way." Guess Im now searching out other companies and their products.
I just got this home after making the mistake of buying the cordless spot cleaner. This thing is amazing! I have a futon and a couch that are microfiber and it makes them both look new again. I notice a lot of reviews complain about the "4ft wide stream". All you have to do is hold it a little closer and it isn't going to spray more than what you want it to. It's common sense people. Great for the price, I would definitely recommend this product.
I purchased the Little Green after returning two separate malfunctioning Spot Bots (not worth the money!). And I am actually more pleased with the overall performance and flexibility of the Little Green, and for less cost. It has great suction and I find the dirty water container very easy to remove and rinse. I recommened suctioning a small amount of clean water from the faucet after use to help clean out the hose and you'll have less residual odor. I dump and rinse after each use, making cleanup of the dirty water tank very simple. Also, the spray mechanism does spray far too wide, but you can somewhat block one side with your finger and spray a smaller area.
A co-worker suggested this item to me after I was "barking" over not wanting to pay $300 for a professional cleaner to clean my living room set. Her reviews were 100% accurate. It was easy to use, lightweight and powerful. After a year of two kids and a dog, my set was company ready. If you FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS, you should have the results you were looking for. I do suggest you pre-treat heavily soiled areas with a cloth, the Bissell solution and water. Your arms are sure to get a workout....in a good way!
