Wine Down With Hoover

This past month or so has been a bit disasterous in my household. In order the following things occurred which all nearly put me over the edge but somehow left me unscathed on the other side of it thanks to 1) wine and 2) good cleaning products.

  1. The very same day my husband left for a three-week work trip, my labradoodle had explosive diarrhea all over my main floor. Thankfully it’s hardwood and thankfully, my son was a champ and helped me clean it up.
  2. The area rug in my living room did not survive, however, and was hauled out over my shoulder to the garbage bin that day.
  3. Days after that trauma, I spilled about a half glass of red wine on my stairway, which is carpeted, in an attempt to draw myself a bubble bath and relax for the evening. Which then made me so mad I didn’t run a bath and didn’t relax not one bit (I did, however, refill my glass.)
  4. Within a week of my husband’s return home we started the process of renovating our kitchen. While not doing it ourselves (thankfully), it put our entire household in upheaval for 4 solid weeks.
  5. The same week our kitchen was completed we bought a new vehicle, meaning we now had to list my husband’s old vehicle for sale, and it needed a deep clean ahead of that.

I was thrilled when a Hoover Spotless Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner arrived at my house just before #5 on the list. We put it to work right away in our household! The product retails for $99.99 at andΒ  $159.99 at Walmart.

Check out the features of this beauty:

Convenient Deep Clean – Portable, lightweight carpet & upholstery cleaner sprays, scrubs and suctions to remove every day stains and spills.

Self-Clean Technology – Patent-pending Self-Clean Technology flushes the hose clean after each use to help remove dirt and bacteria for a spotless clean on the inside.

Antimicrobial Multipurpose Tool – A deep cleaning rubber nubs tool that is engineered with antimicrobial materials making it easy to clean while helping to protect it against bacteria, mold and mildew.

Powerful Stain Removal – High performance formula and powerful suction loosen and remove dirt and grime from carpet and upholstery.

Lightweight and Portable – Reach and remove stains virtually anywhere from carpet and upholstery to stairs and more.

Dual Tank Technology – Two removable tanks for clean and dirty water let you fill, empty and rinse each tank easily.

Too bad I tossed that area rug, because I’m certain the Hoover Spotless Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner could have cleaned it and given it a second life. BUT, we did use it to spot clean our carpeted stairway and take care of those few wine spots left behind AND my husband used it to clean all the upholstery in his old vehicle ahead of listing it for sale.

We really liked the compact size making it super-portable and also easy to store in our laundry room closet. The dual tank technology is great and the stain removal is top-notch. No more wine on the stairs (until the next time) and maybe, just maybe, the next time my dog has explosive-anything I won’t toss the area rug.

You win some, you lose some…rug.

  • oh my gosh!!!! WOW that is a lot of messes and spillage lol. sorry to hear about your rug…and the poor glass of wine you lost lol. happens to me sometimes to gah. sounds like a great cleaner! we are actually in need of one so ill let hubby know about this !

  • Sounds like a great machine, I have 3 dogs and accidents do happen, this would be perfect for that instead of pulling out my big full sized steam cleaner

  • Oh gosh spilling red wine on carpet is one of my biggest fears! That Hoover looks amazing! With two boys, and 3 cats at home we can definitely use a spot cleaner!

  • Hahahaha – you didn’t need that shitty rug anyways! Your son really was a trooper in that scenario. And, all hail to red wine, even when it dribbles out of ones glass in potentially disastrous ways, because now you have a great savior.

  • Your poor pooch! I hope she’s feeling better. This sounds awesome! I love that it cleans itself on the inside. I hate having to pull out the huge carpet cleaner for every little spill.

  • It’s nice to have a spot cleaner that’s portable. I have two long-haired cats who love to barf on my carpets at inopportune moments (usually 5 minutes before company is due to arrive).

  • Summer vacation is here for the kiddos and with all the nasty weath we have been having.. what a nice cleanup tool to have

  • With two boys (five and seven), two golden retreivers, a cat, a busy husband and me- a klutzy red wine drinker- I could really use this! Also, my dogs are allowed on the furniture and they leave drool marks… not nice for guests, right? Can you get the cleaning fluid at Walmart?

  • We have 2 dachshunds and 3 little kids, so that = lots of messes! Our old cleaner didn’t do a great job, so I’d be very interested in this!

  • sounds fantastic , great for all those dirty paw prints on my furniture and spilled wine πŸ™‚ i would love to own one of these πŸ™‚

  • I am in the market for a machine to clean my carpet on the stairs and the furniture. I like that this hover is light and easy to use. Sounds like a great machine.

  • Loved your story, thx for the chuckle! Red wine (when it’s not spilled on the carpet) is a great way to unwind!!!

    The Hoover Spotless Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner sounds terrific and affordable. My favourite feature is The Self-Clean Technology – that flushes the hose clean after each use to help remove dirt & bacteria!

  • I love how compact this is, makes cleaning so much easier. What a horrific explosion that must have been. Hoover is a firm you can depend on, in fact in England they don’t say vacuum cleaner they use the word hoover for that.

  • I love that it is lightweight and portable. The self-clean technology and the antimicrobial multipurpose tool are great features too.

  • Oh. My. Goodness. You have made me laugh out loud (sorry). I have been there with prior animals – cats and dogs – that have ended up with explosive diarrhea and got it all over the house. Sounds like the Hoover was a lifesaver for sure.

  • I need something like this in my home! I love the price point and that it’s small and can fit in a cupboard.

  • My mom broke an entire bottle of red wine on her light beige rug which was the worst disaster ever! My parents had to replace all the carpet in that area. Too bad they didn’t have the Hoover Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner! It looks like it can clean up pretty well!

  • with all the mud and misc stains our dog tracks into the house, this sounds like it would be a dream to help tackle those stains
