I saw negative reviews on this web sight, but positive reviews elseware so I decided to buy it. I wanted it mostly to clean furniture upholestry. I have only used the cleaner once, but it worked as promised. No leaking, good suction. The hand tool is simple but still effective. Self cleaning feature is helpful, but there was a little residue left in the tube. For the price, I am happy with this product.
You'd probably be better off buying a spray bottle, some vinegar and a wet/dry vac. I bought this during the spend $75+ & get $75 in FREECASH promotion so I only spent about $30 total which is why I was willing to try it.
All it does is spray solution and suck most of it up. Whoopie. You have to press down VERY VERY hard to get the carpet even 70% dry. Which to me isn't enough. If I wanted to deal with damp carpet I'd be happy with leaving the spill to soak in and stay.
The cleaner that comes with this is very concentrated and burns a little if you accidentally splash some on your hand.
I'm strongly considering returning it, but don't know how that would go since I already spent the first installment of points. *sigh*
Do not waste your time.
