    Bissell Little Green Machine

    I detailed cars for an income throughout college.

    Ferrari's, Porsche's, Maserati's, etc.

    This is what I used.

    Using their formulas I was able to get melted lipstick and chocolate w/ caramel out of the carpet in a Maserati.

    I was also able to get spilled coke that had been sitting for about 3 months out as well in a Ford truck.

    I was able to get the rancid smell of stale milk and baby fecis out of an Explorer.

    It also cleans your furniture quite well, and your carpet in your house (for those annoying little stains MONTHS later).

    Get the one with heat and use the (yes it's more expensive but it actually works, unlike the other stuff) Bissell branded cleaners.

    When I bought that machine 4+ years ago, it was ~100, it's JUST now stopped squirting, but it still sucks like there's no tomorrow...lol

    Get the one with heat. The turbo nozzle thing isn't all that, so if you don't think you need it, don't worry about it.

    carpet dye to get dirt out!?

    wtf?

    maybe I'm missing something here????

    that's like filling in a chrome bumper with scratches using the chrome colored paint pen when you really need to have the bumper rechromed...

    what kind of detail shop was this? one of those that does about 100 cars a day and has a line of people drying the cars....full detail for only $15!
