    Anyone have one and are they any good?

    •  

      I have a similar model (they have the same product in a few versions - pet, car, home, etc.).

      The spray hose on mine blocked after 5-6 uses. Now I just dump the water from the tank on the floor and vaccuum it up.

        Same here. The hose is blocked badly after few uses.

        Is there no way to clean it or unblock it?

      Yeah they are quite good. Depending how dirty your car is it work fabulous. My tip is vacuum very well first than soack with a lot of mixed water with detergent leave for 10 minutes than use it do it 2x your car will look new. Also it can be used to clean carpets and couch.

      Don't do it. I had one. Sold it. The only benefit is the brush, spray and vacuum are connected. The negatives are: you need to apply your own elbow grease to actually clean (the brush is just static/doesn't rotate), to spray the entire unit has to be running and making a gawd almighty racket. Did I mention it's loud. The alternative is to use a separate spray bottle, a tough cleaning brush and a wet dry vacuum (all can be had for much less cost). The benefit of this approach is you don't need to have the vacuum running just to spray and scrub.
      If you have pets, this might be good but get the version with the dirt catcher at the brush end.

      I do like the rechargeable version though and use that on occasion.

      I have one and great. Before got the upright Bissell carpet cleaner I used this for cleaning whole couch, whole rugs etc. Not what it's meant for but does that fine even if you have the time for it.

      I definitely recommend getting it for the small jobs intended, cleaning spills, stains, cleaning small areas, cleaning the car etc.

    I have the bissel simply green version (pretty much the same i'd imagine minus the heating element.

    Has sucked up dog shit and vomit out of the carpet valiantly for the last 5 years with no issues.

    Tip: Dont waste $ on detergents and the like - Nothing beats water for cleaning power, everything else is just getting in the way!

      I've heard Bowden's own works well with it. I imagine any decent upholstery cleaner would help. Still, you might be right. Water is often enough to remove stains, maybe with a little bit of white vinegar perhaps? Could help to kill bacteria and freshen. I wonder if it would corrode the Bissell components, though.

        You better believe they'll tell you it will ruin your machine!

        Order of attack should be:

        1. Water only
        2. Manual agitation with scrubber + repeat water only
        3. Assess whether that stain is going to come out, then try other products.

    I have one and it works well on grubby car mats and couches

    Another user here. Works great in the car and to clean up small spots on the rug. It has a fairly small tank so not ideal for larger areas. I just use Simple Green APC from Bunnings as the detergent.

    Got one about a year ago when they were half price at Harvey Norman (ugghhh, I feel so dirty). Great unit - tanks are a bit small, its bloody noisy, but the suction for sucking up water etc is brilliant. I usually just soak the crap out of whatever I'm cleaning, then go over it with the suction on a few times - you can see the liquid and muck being sucked up until its relatively dry. Great for the car, lounge, or any smaller spots and stains that don't warrant a full carpet clean etc.
