For me the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner came in handy for our area rug under the dining room table.  This area in our house harbored all sorts of stains – crayon, coffee, dirt, marker, and food stains.  One of the best aspects of the Rug Doctor Cleaner  is the long length of the motorized hand tool.

See the Rug Doctor spot cleaner in action in my You Tube Video. See how Men Clean.


During the entire cleaning, I barely had to move the machine around the area that I cleaned – it was very user friendly.  Another cool aspect of the spot cleaner is the line marks on the fill container, no need for a measuring cup as rug doctor makes it easy to figure out, just fill clean water to the fill line, then add solution to the solution line.

 Compared to the Bissell little green, the advantage of the rug doctor is two fold – motorized brush (first of its kind on a hand tool), and double the suction power (dries in half the time).  All stains came up after 2 or three swipes of the hand tool – just as a disclaimer, our rug had never been cleaned in two years, so I was impressed.   I believe the next areas I will attack with the spot cleaner are the minivan and the carpet stairs on our third floor – both areas are suited for spot cleaner vice a full size carpet cleaner machine.    I am attracted to the two year warranty, and ease of use       ( took 2 minutes to figure out how to use) – I would definitely recommend this device to someone that has  area rugs, carpeted stairs or a car/minivan.
