Rug Doctor Spot Portable Upholstery & Carpet Spot Cleaning System
Only for small jobs
This product worked well on small spots for upholstery, did not clean up cat vomit stains in carpet well at all. Or high traffic carpet areas. True in the title - spot cleaning only. And probably best only for upholstery. Didn't work for our needs and very hard on the back.
Got kids? Dogs? A husband? Then you NEED this!
The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is exactly what this family of five needs! From kids and husbands to dogs and chickens, our carpets don't stand a chance at staying clean. Even if they weren't white, I still think it would be hard to keep them clean with the crew I live with. (Apparently the previous owner didn't have kids or pets and thought white carpets would be pretty. UGH!)
I was surprised how easy this portable spot cleaner was to operate. Not as heavy as I expected it to be and even easier to use than the Rug Doctor carpet cleaning machine I rented a few years ago. Not only is this unit convenient to pull out and attack new stains, but it works great on set in stains as well. The motorized brush head is like magic. Does all the work for you! I like how easy it is to clean up the unit when I'm done using it too.
I actually gave our Beagle to my in laws several months ago because despite numerous attempts, he just could not grasp the concept of peeing outside. He wasn't fixed till he was 3 years old so he just wouldn't stop marking all over the house. I've been running around for two days cleaning up all the stains he left behind. What a relief to finally have a solution that works millions of times better than scrubbing the carpet on my hands and knees with a rag, brush and carpet cleaning solution. I wish I had bought something like this years ago!
The Spot Cleaner is easy to drag around the house for any job and it does the work for you. I know I am going to get a ton of use out of this Spot Cleaner between the pets, children and the husband. If you have any of the aforementioned mess makers in your household, this Portable Spot Cleaner is definitely a must! I highly recommend it!!! Granted, I received a Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner to facilitate this review, but don't worry, all opinions are my own regardless of material connection.
Great Cleaning Machine
I purchased the portable spot cleaner to clean our car and trailer rugs. Last night in used it on the entire car and the seats look great! There were crayon and other stains and they were almost all completely removed. I highly recommend this machine for small areas.
Awesome! Love Rug Dr. Products
We love our Rug Doctors. We have the large machine and have just added this portable machine. It is easy to use and works very, very well. We rent our apartment and have a 3 year old and 2 dogs living with us. Spills and ills happen so, it is great to be able to pull this small, portable machine out to clean up any messes quickly.
this has been the best spot cleaning machine i have ever used.
Saved My Carpet From Puppy Stains!
We had just gotten a german shepherd puppy and this was soooo perfect for clean ups! This little machine has saved my carpet and rugs from pet stains and odors! Get it!
Cleans like a dream
My dog ate something and got sick ALL over my new carpet.
This little machine cleaned it up in no time.
One of my best buys from QVC.
Not so great!
Safe yourself some money. This isn't a great machine! Barely noticed any difference!
mom's helper! :-)
Put this to the test! I work nights and my husband called to tell me one of the kids vomited all over the light beige carpet. He tried but 8 hrs later the carpet was a drying mess. Cleaned it out in less than 5 minutes after I got home! It took me longer to fill the water and soap container on the cleaner, and it's super easy. The carpet looks better where the vomit used to be than the rest of it where it was "clean". Time to rent a full size for the rest....I can use the $10 off rental coupon that came in the box! Love the easy pay too! Woo hoo! :-)
I have 3 dogs that love to go outside, eat something and come in and vomit. It's always a nasty pile of brown or green stuff. I have been using Resolve by hand because it is way too much of a hassle to break out the big steam cleaner that doesn't do that good of a job anyway. I gave this a try and DADA! It works! It works quickly and clean up of the machine itself is quick. If you have something that is producing stains on your carpets, you NEED this machine. Highly recommend.
A MUST for pet owners
I love this little powerful machine. I cleaned my couch today and it was so easy! I purchased it originally for puppy stains on the carpet because I thought it would be so much easier than bringing out my full size Rug Doctor every time. It is convenient to have handy when I see a puppy accident. However, after cleaning my large couch today I am even more pleased with this purchase. I highly recommend!!
Mrs. Clean Is Happy!
Since we were first married, my hubby has called me "Mrs. Clean". Part of my fastidious habits are from being the oldest girl in a family of 17 people and part is being a nurse and learning about germs/ bacteria, etc. Around 5 yrs. ago, our oldest son spilled cola on the carpet in his bedroom and tried to clean it several times but did not tell me until he moved out. That stain was "locked in". When I saw this Rug Doctor on QVC, I thought, if it works on that stain then I'll be happy. It worked! The water in the discharge tank was dark brown but every bit of the cola stain came out even after 5 yrs. WOW. I was impressed. So I tried it on my Family Rm. sofa. My husband uses dandruff shampoo and he gets oil spots where he rests his head. I tried every kind of cleaner and scrubbed it multiple times with a stiff brush. I even made heavy suds from Dawn dish soap and scrubbed. I tried Dozens of spray cleaners and deep vacuuming. Since I bought the Rug Doctor, I thought it couldn't hurt. It took all the oil stain out on the first try. Even before the material dried completely, I could tell it was cleaning the spot and the Rug Doctor made it easy. Now I'm happy as everything is clean.
