    May 10, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: picked up most of the spots
    Cons: big to move around, have to really get down to clean

    Mar 15, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small and compact
    Cons: Loud, not much suction, leaks

    Summary: My husband and I had a puppy and thought this little machine would do the trick to clean up those little mishaps. And it wasn't nearly as expensive as those big upright wet vacuums. Well-it's good for light spots. You really have to push hard to get ... read more

  • Good idea, stinker execution

    Oct 25, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Concept, portability, some user design features.
    Cons: Painfully loud, spray functions too temperamental.

    Summary: Love the idea of this machine: a small portable designed to clean up small spots. However it has a couple big flaws which are also noticed in other reviews of this machine. One: it is painfully loud. I find myself wearing ear protectors designed for ... read more

    Feb 19, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The machine works well on many small spills and spots and is small and portable
    Cons: Occasional clogging, but it's good to know how to fix it yourself.

    Summary: I have had the same problem with clogging of the Little Green Clean Machine cleaning solution dispenser. On one occasion, I paid for a repair to have it cleared. I have discovered how to fix this myself and I hope this will help others. First, remove ... read more

    Pros: light weight, compact, good attachments
    Cons: noisy, underpowered, leaks

    Pros: Long cord, removable brush in nozzle.

  • A Lotta Green Wasted on a Little Green!

    Apr 13, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, easy to carry, cool looking.
    Cons: Great looking doorstop! The whole thing broke second time we used it.

    Summary: Why do things and products look so easy for everyone else? Why are certain appliance's concepts outstanding but the implementation difficult? Why do I get the lemons and still keep trying to make lemonade out of them? This familiar pattern rings true ... read more

  • The *SHOCKING* Possibilities of the Little Green Machine!

    Apr 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: works very well at first
    Cons: doesn't hold up well, rubber plug becomes unstable, shock hazard?

    Summary: When I bought the Little Green Machine, it was with great relief. You see, my parents had three dogs--- (which is quite enough to ruin any carpet, even in a larger home, by the way... ask me how I know...) and, to top it off, one was incontinent. The ... read more

  • Pass on this one

    Nov 14, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong suction
    Cons: Difficult to clean and to store

    Summary: I'm currently shopping for a new portable carpet cleaner so I can throw this one in the garbage. Its only positive aspect is that it has a strong suction and is able to get the carpet relatively dry after cleaning. But then the trouble starts. You end ... read more

  • Not So Keen on the Little Green Machine

    Jul 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cleans upholstery fairly well and decent for small spots of carpet
    Cons: not very effective for carpets. backbreaking to use

    Summary: The Little Green Machine is fairly effective for cleaning upholstery and somewhat effective for cleaning up small stains on carpet, but in general I can't recommend it. The machine is very hard to use. It's not too powerful, so you have to go over ... read more

  • Poor Design Ruins Good Idea

    Jun 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: There are pros?
    Cons: Very Poor Design

    Summary: I can't think of a single product that has disappointed my wife and I more than our Little Green 1720-1. The main problem we've had with this unit is that the tanks do not properly snap into place. Consequently, the seals don't sit properly in place ... read more

  • Great for the Van!

    May 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, Portable, Uncomplicated
    Cons: Not suitable for floors or large areas

    Summary: This is my first cleaner and I am reasonably pleased with this purchase. I had it out of the box and working within 15 minutes or so. I expect this will last for a few years which should provide a decent return on my modest investment. Here ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Strong little machine
    Cons: no complaints

    Summary: I recently bought one of these steam cleaners for my carpeting. My dog started developing kidney problems and was urinating on my carpet everyday. If it wasn't for the Bissell Little Green Portable Deep Cleaner I would have been kicked out of my ... read more

    Pros: Tanks are easy to handle
    Cons: Awkward, clumsy, not much suction

    Summary: With four cats in the house I bought the Little Green thinking it would be just the thing to save my carpet from the ongoing pet episodes. At first I was going to buy the smaller more portable model but decided that it would not have the power to do a ... read more

  • Good at its job-if its job is what you really need.

    Mar 3, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small enough to be an emergency cleaning system.
    Cons: Leaky filter.

    Summary: I have owned one of these for two years, and have put it through things that it really wasn't designed for, and things it was. For what it was designed for, it is a very good piece of equipment. To be sure, this unit is not designed to do your whole ... read more

  • Even Takes Out Red Wine Stains

    Feb 5, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Has not met a spot it won't remove, small enough to be truly portable.
    Cons: Noisy. Hose is a little unwieldy. Waste tank must be cleaned well.

    Summary: When you buy a Little Green Machine you get more than you pay for. The big uprights go for over $1,000. If you want to clean a whole carpet, rent one. If you have kids and/or pets that require spot removal, there isn't anything better than this ... read more

  • Little Green, BIG Disappointment

    Jan 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Will easily fit back in box to be forgotten in the cellar?
    Cons: Too many to list in 15 words or less.

    Summary: When I saw this cleaner advertised I thought it would be just the thing to clean my living room furniture and possible the car upholstery. When I saw them on sale for $39.95 I thought couldn't go wrong. *Buzzer sound here* Wrong again. Wink please tell ... read more

  • Mean Little Bissell Green

    Dec 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small enough to go anywhere!
    Cons: Sometimes the dirty tank sticks.

    Summary: After just moving into brand new military housing, I was faced with the stress of keeping the house at 100 percent all the time. The first ones in new housing are always the ones who pay the most when they move out. So needless to say I didnt want to ... read more

  • what a waste of money... and effort!

    Nov 29, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: got out the stains -- finally. Entertained the children.
    Cons: Sears does have a 30 day, money back warrantee don't they?

    Summary: I bought this yesterday and it proved to be an exercise in futility. It took as much effort (if not more) as my previous method of a spray bottle of Folex, a scrubbing brush and an old towel. It is now sitting in its box by the front door ... read more
