I received a Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
I tried the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner on some old spots of set-in globs of unidentifiable something from our shoes around the house. We had a couple of black spots of something and one red spot in the bedroom beside our shoes as well as a grey and somewhat sticky spot of something in the living room. These spots had been on the carpet for several weeks now and I wasn’t sure the Rug Doctor could handle them. However, I gave it a go anyways (we are renting an apartment and I didn’t want to leave those spots behind when we move).
After following the super easy steps to get the Portable Spot Cleaner going, I first attempted the black and red splotches in the bedroom. After one go at them, I could see a difference. I did go over the spots a few times, just for good measure. Now, you can’t even tell there was anything there. In fact, I had my boyfriend look at the area when he came home from work and he couldn’t even tell where to look as he couldn’t remember the exact spot where the dots where! Additionally, the spot in the living room came out cleanly as well.
I’m very happy with the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner as it gets out stains that a normal vacuum cleaner can’t do anything with. Plus, it’s small and easy to move about the apartment with. Now, I don’t worry about accidents and spills as much because I know this thing can handle them.

i received a product to facilitate this review. all opinions are my own.

we just moved into our new home in march, a few weeks after having baby3.0. is was a busy whirlwind event, and i was tending to a newborn, a toddler and a child as i scrubbed the house from top to bottom and babe painted in anticipation of us moving in. the one part of the house i was unable to clean to my liking was the carpet. the entire house (except for basement, bathrooms, and kitchen) is covered with a multicolored cream/brown rug. i dont like it at all, and eventually hope to replace it with hardwood and area rugs. for now, however, it is what it is.

it looked a little worn when we moved in, and then the boys happened. right near the kitchen, the upstairs hallway, and a spot in the living room taunted me. my mom gave me the old carpet cleaner from her basement when she moved, but not only was it antique it was broken. i ended up with carpet cleaning solution everywhere with little suction. i tried spot cleaning and the spots remained. it was bad enough that the carpet coloring already makes it look dirty when its clean, but the spots mocked me. enter the rug doctor portable spot cleaner.

it arrived the day i was set to leave for a 2 day conference, then i let it stay in the box a few more days out of fear for how hard it was going to be to put together. imagine my surprise when i opened the box to use it i discovered there was no set up involved. the most i had to do was pull the clean water container out and fill to the water line, then pour the soap in the water to the soap line. here is my only complaint: the water container doesnt have a flat bottom. i couldnt just sit it on the counter to make sure it was to the line. once i finished getting everything measure, back in the rug doctor portable post cleaner it went and i was ready to go.

using the machine was just as easy as the set up. turn the machine on, and i was ready to go. the brush handle has an on/off button to turn the rotating brush on or off. i used the brush for the set in stains, but when it was a newer spill i leave the brush off. the shampoo spray button and suction work either way. for the big living room stain, i tuned on the handle and pressed the "soap" trigger on the underside of the brush. i moved the brush forward as the rug doctor sprayed shampoo and then pressed the nozzle into the rug and moved the brush back toward me to suck up the dirty water and stain. the stain was pretty set in, so i ha to go over it a few times in the sitting, but it worked like a charm! i even had enough cleaning solution left in the rug doctor to go do the doorway between the dining room and kitchen.

the rug doctor portable spot cleaner is remarkably light, and i can easily carry it with just the handle. it is nowhere near as heavy and bulky as the rug cleaner i was given from my mom! there is a retractable handle as well, and wheels on the bottom of the machine making it even easier to move around. it reminds me of a rolling suitcase or back pack when it is like this! i would absolutely recommend this for anyone with carpets, or even area rugs in their house. i know that with three boys and a husband my rug doctor will be doing a lot of work! and now for the grand reveal... the spot is gone!
The IE Mommy (Reviewed 7/21/14)
Meet my new best friend: The Rug Doctor, or DR as I have come to affectionately call her. Yes, her! A useful tool in keeping my home beautiful and clean is most definitely a her!

I was so excited to try out The Rug Doctor! Our carpet is just two years old BUT we had a new baby six months ago. All our best efforts at keeping it clean in spite of our other two kids went out the window. You just can't control the spit up, the poop and the food messes that come with baby! I was really sad about it and wishing we had waited longer to get new carpet. But never fear, the Dr. is in!

The second this arrived my husband tore into it and wanted it to clean out his car but I claimed it for myself! House carpet comes before car carpet although it will be nice to use for that as well! It's compact size will fit nicely into our vehicles but first things first!

It just so happened that I had spilled my coffee on the carpet (more accurately, the baby had knocked over my cup) and I could still smell it under my desk in the office. There was also another unidentified crunchy brown spot on the carpet in my living room that I wanted to take care of right away!

I don't love getting new things like this simply because of the setup. But surprisingly there was very little with this. It was basically good to go aside from adding the cleaning solution. Right out of the box there's nothing to put together or install. I just removed the Clean Water section to fill to the line with warm water and then to the next line with the included soap.

The one thing I didn't love and probably the ONLY thing about this Rug Doctor I don't love is the shape of this tank. I realize it has to be that way to fit but it would be nice if it had a flat bottom for when you're putting the water in and trying to check if it's level with the line. You can't just put it on a counter to check. You have to hold it because of the shape.

I really liked the smell of the cleaning solution and was pleasantly surprised by it. I expected it to smell like the commercial carpet cleaners I'm used to but it doesn't at all. It has a smell all it's own that's more conducive to a home environment so your house doesn't smell like an office building.

Once I put the tank back in the Doctor, it couldn't be easier to use. You just turn it on from the top and then turn on the brush as well. I also really liked that it says "On" and "Off" and doesn't JUST show the line and the circle. Am I the only one that can never remember which is which?

I started with the spot on my living room floor. Yuck.

It took me a couple minutes to get the rhythm down and do everything in the right way. There's a little trigger button on the underside of the handle you're holding that releases the liquid. You put the brush in FRONT of the spot where it gets sprayed first and then pull the brush BACK towards you to go over the liquid you just sprayed. It took me a couple minutes to coordinate the spraying so I was getting it on the spot and then releasing it at the right time. I had to go over the spot several times to get it up but I did! (This is the same carpet. The light just changed from when I started).

Next I moved to my office to clean up the coffee I spilled so this was a much larger spot. I couldn't see anything so I went over a nice wide area to make sure I got it all. It's easier when you are doing a big section instead of just a spot because you don't have to pay as close attention to where you are spraying.

I realized when I was done I still had most of my water in the tank. Since I had to use hot water and already put in the soap I didn't want it to go to waste. I decided to go back to the living room and do the section in front of the couch. I know this is where food gets dropped and drinks get spilled and it's a pretty high traffic area. I was able to do a section from one end of the room to the other, from the couch to the coffee table on the one tank after spot cleaning the other two areas.

I love the handle feature! It's like a fun little traveling suitcase! It makes it easy to lean back on the wheels and roll from room to room. You just grab the handle, squeeze and pull up to get it out and then push back down to put back in.

The one that says Carry Handle is just a small handle if you want to pick up and move from one spot to the other where you're not going far enough to make it worth releasing the other handle.

When I was finished, I went to empty out the tank which pulls out easily, and was thoroughly disgusted by the condition of the water. Yuck! THAT was in my carpet! I know this is just a spot cleaner but it made me want to clean my entire house with it! It definitely does the job because it pulled all kinds of things out of my carpet that looked clean!

The Rug Doctor really has thought of everything! From it's design, ease of use and how well it works, the Rug Doctor is incredible and I'm so happy to be able to immediately clean up after my family now instead of just imagining it in my carpet! Now that the baby is crawling, I want to make sure my carpet is as clean as it can be. I'll be especially grateful to have the Doctor in the coming years of potty training ahead of me. EEEK!!

Okay, so I hope that I can effectively convey my excitement and love for this little carpet (life) saver! The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner has literally saved the carpet in my Durango! It’s a light grey and with three kids plus a few on long road trips something always ends up happening. A spilled slushie, ground in sweet and sour sauce. Something!

Because the spot cleaner is smaller in size and pretty light weight – plus it has wheels so I can roll it right out to the driveway, it’s much easier to get out to the truck to clean the carpet. And clean it does! I’ve had this thing for over a year now and I not so fondly recall the first spill – a pretty red slushie all over my light gray carpet less than a month after becoming the proud new owner! I dabbed, and spot cleaned with a traditional spray cleaner and did the best I could to clean it up but the stain stuck around. Until now! This thing works miracles my friends – miracles!

I’ve also used the included UV light to find some spots where my cat urinated due to an infection and cleaned them right up. Once the spots were dry I tested again with the UV light and was really, really pleased with the results! I would definitely recommend giving this a try!

I am a mom to a 3 year old little boy who is full of energy, and two dogs who have reached senior citizen status. In 3 years I have learned that absolutely no sippy cup is leak proof. I’ve also learned that an old dog with an incontinence problem can be a real mess. Both of these factors have resulted in my cream colored wall-to-wall carpet being covered in spots and stains. Normally, I would pull out my big clunker of a carpet steam cleaner at least once a month to try to pull the spots up. Taking the full size steam cleaner out just to clean a few problem areas has been such a hassle, especially since I’m expecting a second baby this fall. I ended up trying out the Rug Doctor Portable Spot cleaner, and it has been a real life (and back) saver! The vacuum suction on this machine is amazing, and the water tank doesn’t run out of water in what feels like two seconds, like many other cleaners. Its portability and ease of use has even inspired me to detail my car upholstery, the cushions covering our dining room chairs and the upholstery covering the rocking chair in the baby’s room. I love the retractable handle and 5’ hose, because I’m definitely not able to get down on my hands and knees to scrub anything right now! I love this spot cleaner and anticipate using it for many years to come. I've even recommended one to my mother and aunt, who both have 3 dogs each.

The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner works great for your unexpected Pet messes. Just today, my husband was working out in the yard and unknowingly stepped in some dog poo. Then of course, he tracked it into the house, on the carpet and up the stairs. The Spot Cleaner worked great on this mess. It was great to use on the stairs since it is so portable and it easily sat on the stairs while I cleaned up the mess.

The Spot Cleaner works great on set in stains as well. My dog got sick in the middle of the night several months ago and it stained the carpet. The stain was no trouble for the Spot Cleaner, came right out!

The Spot Cleaner is easily toted around the house for any job. I do wish it had a bit of a longer cord on it, but that is more of a design flaw on my house than the Spot Cleaner. The motorized brush is a great feature so no scrubbing to get the mess out of the carpet – it does the work for you.

We will be getting a lot of use out of this Spot Cleaner between our pets and children. If you have either in your household, this Spot Cleaner is a must!

This extractor is a tool I will use for years to come in my detail business. Never bought or even used bissell spot cleaners, I'd rather use my steamer. But when I found out about this product I reaserched it and had to buy it for myself. I was pleasantly surprised with the suction as well as ease of use. Now I use this in my detail business daily and would highly recommend. Great price for a great product, Rug Doctor should win best in class for this one!

I received a rug doctor portable spot cleaner sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. For me the 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 machine is the long length of the motorized hand tool. 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.

We've always rented the large Rug Doctors to deep clean our carpets for special events, and this spot cleaner held up to my Rug Doctor standards and more! It was amazing to use for kids spills on the carpets, to clean both of our microfiber couches, and to take out to the van and clean the carpets/upholstery. The extendable handle and wheels made it super easy to move around the house, and the long hose made it ideal for the van. I was impressed with the amount of suction on the attachment, and the motorized brush really helped clean kid food messes off the couch (even the old, stuck on stuff on the arms). I highly reccomend the Portable Spot Cleaner to keep around the house and for the cars... it's awesome! Plus, cleanup is super simple with the wide mouth dirty water tank (so much better than cleanup on some other spot cleaners). The only thing I didn't love was that the solution spray area constantly dripped, so I kept having to suck up the extra drips everywhere, but it was still worth the great cleaning!

I received a Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

We are about to move across the country, and we are going to be renting our house out instead of selling it. Our property managers said that the stains in our carpets would never come out, and we would have to replace them at a cost of $2500. So when I was asked to review the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner, I didn't have a lot of hope.

In all honesty, I was amazed. Our carpets were definitely in bad shape. They are white carpets, and I have two young children under 3 who have spilled food and drink and tracked mud and other debris throughout. There are stains from juice, which are set in, and there are tons of really horrible black stains from I don't even know what. I have been ashamed when we had guests over, and we had to buy a large area rug to cover up the carpets when they got to be too bad.

I started with a small square of carpet about 2 feet by 2 feet, using masking tape to mark it off. Then I followed the directions (which are incredibly simple!) and began using the cleaner. It took me less than five minutes, and the results were enough to make me literally squeal! I have included a before and after photo so you can see the results. In one afternoon, I actually ended up doing every inch of carpet in our living room and hallway, as well as our stairs. The results were astounding.

Our carpets look 100% better. I would NOT say they look brand new... they are at least 7 years old, and you just aren't going to make them look pristine. But all of the worst stains have been completely removed. Unfortunately, at this point, we still have some light pink staining around from juice spills that have already set. They used to be darker red, so it's a huge improvement, but it did not completely remove them.

It also did take some elbow grease to get up some of the stains. We had to use a metal scraper to pull up some of the gunk, and we scrubbed a little with the oscillating brush. But all in all, I was very impressed with the product and how it worked, and I would have NO hesitation in recommending it to anyone. I think the results speak for themselves. Especially when you see how dirty the water gets in the waste bucket!

I just got back from vacation and the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner arrived while I was gone and I am SO glad it did!!! I have cats and that means we came home to yes cat puke. Those of you with cats know those spots are not easy to get out. Normally I can go clean it up and you can still slightly see the spot. This time I used the Rug Doctor Spot Cleaner and I was absolutely thrilled!!! The stains left in my carpet were gone super fast without a trace of cat puke. If you have ever rented a Rug Doctor from the stores you know these are THE machines to get the job done and this little Rug Doctor Portable is just as good!

It is so easy to fill up with the cleaning solution and the clean water tank and there is a separate tank for the dirty water. It's also very simple to empty and dry out. It's also great because it's on wheels like luggage so there is no need to carry this thing around, simply wheel it from place to place. I am most excited about the brushes that move. Most portable spot cleaners on the market today do not have moving brushes, simply just a brush you yourself can move back and forth to scrub. This thing will get right in there and scrub that stain out. I have kids and cats and am happy to say the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is now my new best friend.

I have two households to care for, both with disabled family. They all have fur babies..dogs and cats. Safety and cleanliness are my two main concerns. We LOVE this Rug Doctor shampooer because It ACTUALLY works. The center brushes agitate, gently scrubbing. Yet it's mechanisms are strong, powerful when pressure is applied. The vacuum on this machine is INCREDIBLE. It vacuums up the water it deposits. The water cistern doesn't run out of water every 5 minutes. One tank shampoos a lot of furniture. The machine has wheels on it and a handle that pulls up. It's like luggage on rollers. We can push and pull it with ease. It's light weight enough to lift and place on furniture if needed. Now I can keep furniture in both households clean on a regular basis ......Hey Bissell....you don't have a corner on this market anymore...bye bye and good riddance.
