Bissell's Little Green Portable Carpet Cleaner regularly goes viral on TikTok, but rarely does the bestselling gadget go on sale. If you've been mesmerized by the compact contraption that can make chairs, carpets, and car interiors look like new, now is your time to act. This Black Friday, almost never-seen slashed prices on the device TikTokers have dubbed the "Little Green machine." Right now, Bissell — best known for its pet hair-erasing vacuums and mops — is taking 28% off the cleaning appliance on Amazon for a limited time. Not only does Little Green suck up stains with its powerful hose, but it also holds up to 48 ounces of liquid and makes carpet cleaning casual thanks to its compact design. We'll say this: If those 65,000+ reviews and that 4.5-out-of-5-star Amazon rating tells us anything, it's that we should run, not walk, to scoop one up while it's under $100.
How does the Little Green Machine work?
According to its user manual, pour 8 ounces of the brand's Professional Spot and Stain cleaning solution and some hot water in the tank, hold the 15-foot-long hose about an inch above the soiled surface, spray, vacuum, and repeat until clean. Voila! Stain removed. Once you're done, unplug it and rinse the dirty collection tank and the cleaning tool once removed from its hose. Filming the gross-yet-satisfying process for TikTok is optional but encouraged. If a significant amount of cleaning solution is left over, feel free to leave that in the tank for future clean-ups.
Based on just a handful of its 65,000+ reviews, these simple techniques make "cream [chairs] look like new," "[are] perfect for cleaning every corner of your home," and for one verified buyer, the machine is single-handedly "saving [her] sanity." As for the few not-so-happy customers, some were impressed by the results but had higher expectations for the suction. Amazon reviewer Amanda Reading, for example, mentions, "I’m a rough critic...I was impressed at how clean my pet ramp became from using this, but the suction could have been a lot better." Alas, it got the job done.
It was so embarrassing having people over with the look and odor of [our] couch but just two passes with this vacuum got rid of it.
