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.
- 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.
- The area rug in my living room did not survive, however, and was hauled out over my shoulder to the garbage bin that day.
- 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.)
- 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.
- 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 Hoover.ca and $159.99 at Walmart.
Check out the features of this beauty:

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.
