Today, I'm going to give a big ol' thumbs-up to the Bissell SpotBot® Pet Portable Carpet Cleaner.

Deeks gave this to us as a housewarming gift when we moved into this house four years ago — a house with cream carpets, into which we were moving with five pets and as two mega-klutzes.

Suffice it to say that it has been a life carpet-saver on many occasions!

This morning, I came downstairs to discover that a purple iris I had in a vase had "bled" tiny little drops of purple out of a bud onto the carpet. It was very dark and very inky. Even touching it stained my fingers. I was horrified!

But I set the spot cleaner on it, and, although the spot is still drying, it appears as though it removed the stain (with a little extra help from some diluted bleach). Phew!

Seriously, the things this little machine has successfully cleaned! We couldn't live without it.

Anyway! Give us your thumbs-up or thumbs-down in comments!

(As always, I'm not affiliated in any way with any of the companies whose products I mention, nor am I getting anything in exchange for my recommendations. I just like the products!)
