    Pros: Choice: 3 cycles a plus. 
    Solutions: OxyGen or not, & Pet formula for organic stains.
    Cons: Beeping at the end of the cycle is helpful but I wishing for a time-out.

    Summary: We are fostering a wonderful Lab mix for the local Humane Society and he is a joy... except for his extreme seperation anxiety. We arrived home after an hour long errand to find him greeting us at the door, not resting in his kennel. (Part lab, part ... read more

    Pros: easy to use, durable, effective
    Cons: manual cleaner doesn't clean as well as automatic, auto cleaner cleans a circle

    Summary: I wanted a small steam cleaner for those little spots in my carpet. I have cats and I tend to spill things myself and I am not inclined to drag out the big steam cleaner for these kinds of things. Because I have problems with my knees, I also resist ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use, compact

    "crop circles," uses a lot of fluid

    Summary: I bought one of the "Pet" versions, which are basically the same as other version except it comes with a trial bottle of pet odor cleaner. The unit basically works as advertised: fill it up, put it on the dirty spot, hit the button, and go do something ... read more

    Pros: Time saver and easy to use
    Cons: A few manageable design flaws

    Pros: Extremely easy to use and effective
    Cons: Not at its best on stairs

    Summary: Okay--the SpotBot didn't literally save our cat, but it has spared him a lot of threats. Mr. Columbo, the cat in question, is about 13 years old (not sure exactly; he was a bit past kitten stage when he adopted us), and as he's aged has begun to have a ... read more

    Pros: Performs as promised; easy to use
    Cons: a little heavy for its size; availability of cleaning solution

    Summary: One of the few machines I've ever seen that can outperform elbow grease and woman power. I actually bought this machine because now that my mother lives with me she believes she has to instruct me on removing carpet spots (and we have philosophical ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use. You just fill it up, push a button and go.
    Cons: Nothing that I can tell. It can be a little pricey for a small appliance.

    Summary: I love my full size Bissell steamer for once a year carpet cleaning. However, it was a pain to get out and clean small messes. (Our cat throws up on a regular basis.) I always ended up having to throw away unused solution and clean the entire contraption ... read more

    Pros: Works very well, one-touch and walk away, picks up everything it puts down
    Cons: Makes "crop circles" in carpet, Kinda loud, the beeping sound when done is annoying

    Summary: What I use my SpotBot for: I needed this spot lifter because of my adorable, sweet, cute little Chihuahua is a lean, mean, 6 pound peeing machine who can't understand the concept of not peeing on the carpet. Trial and Error with other ... read more

    Pros: good for a really clean carpet that just had a teeny spot to clean
    Cons: it soaks through the carpet and could damage the floor beneath

    Summary: A little pricey so I borrowed my mother in laws to see if it was something we really wanted, glad I didn't spend the money. It was great for just leaving it there to scrub away the remnants of a sick child's illness. Though, it worked great on a brand ... read more

    Cons: I Can't Find Any

    Summary: We put brand new carpet in our home to try to increase the chance of selling quickly at the price we wanted. However, one week later our large dog became sick and vomited red and green mess all over the carpet in the middle of the living room. I began ... read more

    Pros: great for animal cleanups, great for DEEP stain cleanups
    Cons: $130, noise terrified dogs, manual hose needs improvement

    Summary: I bought this at Walmart for $130 plus taxes 2 years ago, and has worked like a CHAMP up until now. I noticed the unit through the TV ads. There was much temptation. The unit is very attractive, but not easy to hide. I am not all for having my ... read more

    Pros: Automatically cleans stains, works as it says!
    Cons: A little larger and heavier than you'd expect.

    Summary: I have carpet – lots of light beige carpet, and lots of carpet means lots of potential stains. Especially with cats (who like to spit up) and a messy husband. While I have a full size carpet machine, there is no way I am lugging it out of the ... read more

    Cons: Suction power.

    Summary: I bought my Bissell steam vacuum about 2 months ago to help clean up pet messes on my carpet. It has some great features and some bad ones. The best features are how easy it is to fill and empty, and how portable it is. It is also fairly compact ... read more

    Pros: Leave it and go about your business. No hassle at all.
    Cons: Thirsty on solution, a little heavy.

    Summary: Today marks a sad day - the Fast Action Response Tool has died.  This was our second handheld from Bissell and three years seems to be a reasonable life expectation with moderate/heavy use.  We didn't experience any problems with the auto ... read more
