Bissell Spot Clean Pro

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever used this? Lately I can't seem to get seats clean, even if they're not particularly dirty/  Never used a machine before, just pure elbow grease.

This isn't the cheapest at £129, plus the warranty is void if you don't use their product, but it's got good reviews.

Autoglym Upholstery Shampoo and my trusty VAX always seems to work for me.  Mixed up my bottles once and used Autoglym Vinyl Care and still turned out ok!

Just keep a few of the 99p ebay service filter kits in stock as swapping between normal hoover and wet vac clogs everything right up.

You don’t need anything fancy, we use brisk and g101 from Autosmart, a litre or so of brisk to a full bucket of hot water, apply to seats with a sponge, a spray of g101 if really dirty, then use a scrubbing brush and scrub the seats and then wipe with a clean micro fibre which will lift the majority of the dirt then finally finish by going over with a wet vac.

Brisk from Auto Smart is a 98% fix we find .

We run it through a wet vac with hot water , 

BUT ;

Stubborn stains i spray Brisk on the seat nearly Neat then apply steam while rubbing with a Brush or use the steamers own brush if its part of the kit , we have a high pressure steamer , while its still boiling hot wet Vac it out , works a treat .

As Casper says steam on the head lining brings it up like new .

I will stand by what the lads say here. Brisk is fantastic for upholstery, use at a dilution of 10 parts to 1 through a machine or 4 to1 for pre-soak if absolutely minging. G101 for plastics at a dilution of 10 to 1. I buy the large 25 litres and use it with the dispensers, lasts for ages. George as a wetvac too.

Bought this exact cleaner last month, works a treat! Was using it on Clio RS with the white seat inserts, they were hanging and they came up like new

Thanks everyone. Mark101 had mentioned the Titan before, but I never bothered.

So basically Brisk and a wet vac, or else this Bissell if I feel like treating myself haha. Jesus, what have I come to when a wet vac feels like a treat??

A few people from detailing world got ripped of once buying from eBay, it’s very easy to decant these products from 25ltr drums dilute it down and then sell it on, so Ebay is a big no no for me.

We use wet Henry for the worst cars it’s ace, also have a titan wet and dry which is great but a bit flimsy. Most stains come out with a good APC, scrubbing brush and cloth. Only use the wet and dry machines for the really horrible ones. 

We use Bilt Hamber Surfex, very good dilution rate so a little goes a long way.

That's it There good and cheap a lot of people recommend them here you get the bigger ones too but at £35 it's pretty much disposable after 6 months though I've honestly never heard of any one having problems ..

Really just a hoover , however if it's a shampooer it's a two in one really but the reviews do say it kicks out alot of dust. I was just considering a new red Henry just waiting for a cheap one to go on sale:lol:
