I LOVE THIS CARPET CLEANER!!!! The Bissell Big Green Machine woks so well. I have 3 messy boys (and one messy-but awesome husband), and my carpet was a nightmare! I would get stressed over the mess that was my carpet. There were stains that I couldn't imagine would ever come out. I happened upon the Bissell Big Green Machine and all of the wonderful reviews; I knew I had to give it a shot. Well, after I received it, I immediately got down to business, and the rave reviews were TRUE! It got out our aged stains out like no one's business, and didn't leave our carpet wet, either. Our house looks so much better all because of this amazing cleaner. I literally said, "Wow, that's amazing!" each time I walked into our family room for the first 2 days after shampooing. I can't say anymore, it's just that good!
