Anyone knows, or at least those of us who own a home, it takes a lot to maintain a home. Don’t get me wrong, I love owning a home. I am blessed and I want to steward what God has given me well. I am a list person but not when it comes to having a cleaning schedule. It’s sort of in my mind. I make a mental note of things I need to clean that day. When it comes to things that you may not need to clean as often, like washing a rug or your couch or a sofa, it actually may take longer to do so therefore I set a few of these types of tasks per month so that I don’t overwhelm myself.
So I have been seeing a lot of great reviews in regards to Bissell‘s Little Green vacuum and I finally decided to get it. I started doing a lot of chair flips so I needed a tool that could really clean upholstery well. Of course it sent me on the path of cleaning smaller rugs in our home and our car. The water coming out of these items was absolutely filthy.
I loved this vacuum so much that I had to share my review with you. (This is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to give you guys an honest feedback from my personal experience)
The design of this whole piece is just pure genius. It’s small and compact. You can store it under your sink or in your closet without it taking up too much space. What I love most about this piece is that all of the accessories have their place somewhere on the machine. The cord wraps around as well as the hose. The actually end piece of the hose has a holder and you can store an attachment on top of that. The second attachment piece has a holder as well so it’s less likely that you would loose any of these pieces. It also comes with a hydro clip that attaches to the hose. So in the end all of pieces are nicely tucked away.
I am not an instruction manual type of a person. I will glance at it, but I honestly like to get to know an item by experimenting with it. I read through the basic instructions so I am not ruining the machine by doing something I shouldn’t with it but overall I didn’t really need the manual because all of the pieces attached fairly easy and there are instructions on the tanks as well the ratio of water to the cleaning agent that needs to be mixed in. The machine actually makes like this suttle noise when the dirty tank is full so that you know that you need to empty it out. The whole process is spraying on the water, letting it sit for a few minutes, then sucking that water out. I do have to say the advantage that this smaller one has over a larger carpet washing vacumes is that you can press as hard as you need to get the maximum water out. This way the piece dries quicker and you won’t end up saturating it with water.
Easy Clean-Up and Storage
The tanks remove very easily for refills and dispensing the water out. One of my favorite features of this piece is that it can clean the hose out for you after you’re finished. You just attach the hydrorinse clip to the end, add clean water to the tank, press the nozzle and allow the clean water to back fire through the hose, clean it, and dump into the dirty water tank which you empty after you’re finished. Once you do that and rinse both of the tanks out, you can tuck the machine away until next use.
Although it is a smaller vacuum and is meant to be used for smaller things, I personally think that if you have the patience to do larger areas rugs or larger furniture pieces, you can definitely accomplish it with this machine. My suggestion would be that you don’t pour too much water onto a specific area or item. This way you do not oversaturate, but even you do oversaturate an area, it really has a powerful suction, so it really does pull out a lot of the water.
I try to be a minimalist when it comes to making product purchases, but this tool makes such a big difference in the cleanliness of your home. I personally believe that a lot of the items that we toss out just really need to be washed well and this is the tool that is great for that.
It’s in a mid price range of $120. I checked several stores and the price is set at this amount across the board. I personally think that this is not a bad price if this is going to prevent you from having to purchase a new rug or a new furniture piece.
