OH.
MY.
GOODNESS.

I got a Bissell ProHeat 2x Turbo 



This thing ROCKS! After a year and a half in this house, the cheap-o carpets were really showing their wear. My boys are not neat, by any stretch of the imagination, and have thrown up on, wet, spilled, soiled and muddied up the rugs. I spot cleaned when accidents happened but it was just getting to the point where I had to take more drastic measures.

So I did a little research as and ended up buying the Bissell ProHeat 2X Turbo at Costco the other day. Today, I finally got a chance to use it in the boys' bedrooms. You know, the spot behind his bed where Joey would toss all of his still partially full sippy cups of milk, leaving a sticky, stinky mess.

I used the spot cleaner treatment first and then did one pass over the entire rug on the regular setting and then three passes with clear water only to get up all of the soap. The rugs look new. Every single stain came up, including the big spot of red Kool Aid that had soaked in, and all I had to do was walk the machine over it a few times.

That's not to say that it was quick... it took me about 2.5 hours to do two smallish rooms because you have to go slow but I put on my MP3 player and it was no problem at all. This machine is AWESOME.

Got mine at Costco too. Though I don't know that I'd call $200 cheap, that is like $50 less than I see it for on Amazon.

Neat tip! Maybe I will get it for my mom. My sister spilled diet cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper on the stairs there two years ago and nothing has gotten that out yet.

The carpet here is stained and horrible but I just don't think I care. :D

Alot of my stains had to do with potty training so I really really HAD TO do something.

That's why I needed it, and will need it into the future. I just love that it sucks up all the dirty water and stuff and leaves the carpet virtually dry. LOVE IT!
