How we use the Bissell Spot Cleaner with our car care products
What is it?
The Bissell SpotClean is a great little shampoo extraction machine, perfect for use in your car or your house. We've been using one at our HQ for quite a while now, and it's saved us and team members' cars many times!
If you do need some justification to go and buy one, just tell your minister of finance how it’s also awesome for small spills and mishaps in the house, ranging from couch and carpet stain removal, even for restoring an entire lounge suite. We think the little Bissell is a great consumer machine that's well worth getting. It does have its faults (like the smaller tanks, shorter hose, not as powerful as expensive professional machines), but the pluses of having this super portable and affordable machine far outweigh any negatives in our eyes.
What you'll need + how to use it
For this machine cleaning technique you'll need a combination of our car care products - , a, microfibre cloth and the pH neutral all purpose cleaner as well.
The dirty water tank is quite small in the SpotClean, so be prepared to empty it often if you’re doing more than just a small area. When you hear the sound of the machine change to a higher pitch noise, it’s time to empty it out. It operates off a float device inside the dirty solution tank to stop the machine when it's full (note that the "FULL" mark on the side of the tank is a bit high). Pull the tank off and drain it, noting how much ingrained dirt, grime and junk you have now pulled out from the carpet. Once it’s empty, give the tank a gentle shake so that the float inside settles back to the bottom of the tank.
Leave the rubber stoppers on the tanks open slightly so the tanks can air out after use. If you close them off, there's a chance they can build up mould and other nasties.
Wrap the hose around the machine and place it in the supplied holder points to avoid the hose cracking.

The different Bissell SpotClean machines
Here's the lowdown on the main differences between Bissell SpotClean models (maybe grab a cuppa, because it's a lengthy read):
All machines function the same fundamentally - they will remove most spots, stains, embedded dirt/grime and odours from carpets, rugs, fabric upholstery, car interiors, and mattresses. It's mostly the attachment set, and warranty that differs. Little Green and SpotClean (all colours) have the same motor power (275 - 330w), and SpotClean Turbo (750w) has the largest.

Remember to always check the care label on anything you're going to clean to make sure it's compatible with a wet cleaning system like SpotClean! Codes W or WS on the label generally mean it's fine.
We find these work great with our Orange Agent and Fabra Cadabra. Check with Bissell if you're concerned about the machine warranty.
