My lifesaver - The Bissell SpotBot

Let me first say, that I am a true Bissell SpotBot owner. I bought this product with a 3 month old puppy and a 11 month old little girl. I have never regretted a single moment of owning this carpet cleaning machine.

This machine took away so much of the stress and time-consumption of having a puppy and a baby.

Who Needs the Bissell SpotBot

This carpet cleaning machine is perfect for homeowners, renter and auto owners who have messy kids or pets. It is a quick and easy way to clean up stains and spills. However, I would not recommend this product if you are looking for a whole house carpet cleaner or to clean everyday, all over wear and tear to carpets. This product works best for those who need to maintain an overall clean carpet by getting rid of dirty spots and stains.

Bissell SpotBot Uses

  • Carpet in home. Just put the machine on the stain and walk away.
  • Furniture upholstery. Did your friend spill her red wine on your couch? It's not big deal with the SpotBot.
  • Vehicle upholstery. The long cord and hose make it so easy to use the SpotBot to detail your car instead of having to pay someone else to do it.
  • Mattresses. You brought the baby into bed with you this morning and she spit up everywhere? It's OK, I've got a SpotBot!
  • Any item with stains that cannot be put in a washing machine. For example, my daughter has a pack n play that we use for her bed when we go on vacations. Most recently, her diaper overflowed at night and we had a new pee-pee stain on it. When we got home, we pulled out the SpotBot and used the hand held hose. All it took was pushing the button to spray the mat down and then the scrubbing/suctioning. I wouldn't really call it scrubbing, the brush is attached to the suction hose and brushes as you suck up the water and solution.


  • Leaves small circles with the hands free mode that emphasize surrounding dirt
  • Very noisy
  • Can leak if tipped over
  • Dirty tank fills quickly when using the hands free mode


  • Great at removing small tough stains
  • Easy to use
  • Small and compact
  • Portable
  • No effort or manually scrubbing needed
  • No assembly required
  • Long cord
  • You don't need to use as much solution as it suggests
