  1. With a husband, kids and a dog there seems to be no end of accidents that leave their mark. Being able to clean these easily and properly as they happen would make life that little bit easier

    • Michele WURST Reply

      I could write a daily review with my six children, dog, cats, and even a turtle who likes to drag his smelly self around our rugs!

      • i have a mechanic in the house who tends to forget to take his shoes off before he walks on the rug getting grease out is a chore

        • The rug doctor would save me at least 2 hours a week in my cleaning carpet missions from the kids leaving ‘beauty’ spots around and our kitten who hasnt learnt as yet to wipe his feet before entering

    • Kylie Rhodes Reply

      With 2 young boys a husband and a German shepherd running through house I am in desperate need of a good clean of my carpets!
      Hubby is a mechanic so I’m constantly finding grease stains on the carpet!
      2 school age boys who love their food and seem to love sharing it with the carpet is driving me up the wall keeping it clean!
      Help me rug doctor help me please!!

    • Fostering kittens and raising a teenager I can’t remember the last time my carpet was spotless, would love to give this a go and freshen up the carpet from all those lovely pet stains

    • Single mum with 2 children who spend alot of the time on the floor messing things up. Son with special needs who uses mats on the floor daily Also would love to try it on the wheelchair seats they get grubby at school and i find them tricky to clean ☺

    • With OCD, cleaning is a very time consuming task. I’m a mum of 3 children. One is special needs, one is a typical teenager and one is a 9 month old that likes to feed himself.
      I am constantly scrubbing my floor mats.and couch by hand because i have never been able to find a cleaner that actually works. We have a light grey couch and matching floor rug in the lounge, that takes forever by hand several times a week to clean. I would love to be a part of this and not only find something that works but to also get back so much valuable time with my kids

    • Chelle Lewis Reply

      With 1 child, 4 cats and 3 dogs of my own and working as a petsitter and foster carer, my carpets are always in need of spot-cleaning and having to pay for regular carpet cleaning every few months gets quite expensive for a single parent. A Rug Doctor would be a much used and much appreciated addition to our home!

    • With 5 kids and 2 dogs I’m always hiring machines to clean my carpet ,rugs and couch . But sometimes they just don’t cut it . With my baby about to crawl ,I’d like the carpets clean for him . And no doubt I’ll need to do couch more often when he starts moving

    • Woth a toddler a dog and cream carpets, I am cleaning up spills oma daily basis. This would be a godsend for our family and I am sure it will show great examples for review. Thanks for the opportunity.

  2. Sherodam wooler Reply

    Living a hectic life with 4 children and pregnant with no 5 this would be amazimg.
    I could clean the milk, blood and food stains out of my couch. The milk that has been spilt in the car along with tomato sauce and the smell left behind from rotten apples under the car seats. Also having 3 children soon to be 4 in car seats this would make it easier cleaning spills straight away. The rugs in the childrens rooms and the carpet throughout the house

  3. I love that the cleaning is chemical free. I don’t have to worry about bringing chemicals into our home to get a good clean.

  4. i love that you can carry it easily to do the stairs and all the fiddly corners. Our 2 and 3yo are constantly dropping everything all over the carpet. Spot cleaning with a rag to get everywhere they do is a pain, but this would help so much to run after them

  5. 4 kids under 7 yrs old, and one grubby cat! And 3 of the kids are boys… need I say more! Vegemite, chocolate, peanut butter fingers will be no longer an issue if I had this little beauty! The couch needs to be wiped down daily, and the rug and carpet in the lounge is just a constant struggle to keep clean when pricey carpet cleaners charge an arm n a leg! Now THIS sounds like such a life hanging. Daily cleaning miracle! I so need this in my life!

  6. Nicole Strachan Reply

    4 kids and cream carpet throughout the house. A spot cleaner is an absolute necessity in my life and it would save my sanity.

  7. 2 dogs, 2 kids (4 year old, 16 year old) and a BIG Kid (37year old husband) so let me ask all the mothers and wives out their who doesnt need this? Tell’em they are dreaming

  8. I love the fact that it cleans up so many things from pet disasters to blood to makeup. Would definitely be a life saver in my household.

  9. Ann Sculley Reply

    I love the lightweight and amount of cleaning you can do ,Rugs,carpets ,Couches and cars and Pet stains , I could make a lot of spaces clean with ease again .

  10. What with the kids AND My husband having this on hand would be superbly helpful

  11. Hayley Wilkinson Reply

    It would mean I have my own carpet cleaner and don’t have to borrow someone else’s in the family. My bedroom carpets would forever be clean and fresh with this.

  12. I love the fact it’s portable and I can take it anywhere. It’s great for my son who lo b.c es yo get dirty, I now don’t have to worry about how my carpets will stay clean lol.

  13. This couldn’t come at a better time. Friday night is 80s night at our house and it’s always a raceto the remote to choose the next song. The moral of the story is…….dont run with a red wine in your hand. Hehehe I swear I’ve told my kids the same thing. Cream carpet and red wine do not mix

  14. This Rug Doctor would be great to tidy up those sneaky spills you find on the carpet, in the car, the lounge and whoever kids are! What a handy quick alternative to losing all feeling in your arm from scrubbing like a psycho.

  15. Mark Agapiou Reply

    The rug doctor will help me clean the mess my little one makes when she gets any food in her hands.

  16. Nicole Davidson Reply

    We have a busy household of a blended family of 6 children all under the age of 10 and a dog and kitten. Between the 8 of them there is always an accident waiting to happen. I would love to use this product to fight against the muddy shoe, the make up stains on the carpet and the chocolate stains on the couch…… well I hope it’s chocolate

  17. Johanna rees Reply

    Living on a farm with a multitude of pets tracking in farm dirt, not to mention a husband who does the same, this Rug Doctor Spot Cleaner is a safe, chemical way to keep my carpets clean and smelling fresh and would literally easily deal with ‘what the cat dragged in’ .

  18. My kids have destroyed all the rugs!! We have a large clunky carpet cleaner but it’s to hard and noisy to pull out to clean the rugs on a regular basis. To have a portable spot cleaner would be a life saver, I’m always spaying with carpet cleaner and scrubbing and it doesn’t help. We’re also embarking on toilet training out 2yr old twins an no doubt there will be lots of accidents to clean up after.

  19. Leanne Richardson Reply

    Oh My Goodness my carpet has been fed an apple(or some food) a day so it NEEDS a Doctor – A Rug Doctor to make it feel shiny and new.

  20. I love the ease of the spot cleaner – ability to quickly fill and empty the tank is a big plus. With two kids destroying my new carpet and pre-kid rugs I need this in my life

  21. I gave up trying to get anyone to remove their shoes before entering my house, that’s why my carpet has stains on it. Somehow, my daughter ended up with makeup – eyeliner, foundation, lipstick etc., on the carpet of her bedroom – impossible to remove! I also have a bad habit of overfilling coffee cups and dripping them on the carpet as I walk through to the lounge room. The RugDoctor sounds like the perfect spot remover – a life saver!

  22. I love that you can use it for spot cleaning ! No need to hire a huge carpet cleaner and have to clean the whole house if not needed. With a 4yrold, 2.5yr (real boy who loves dirt, mud and food), a dog and a husband that works in a dirty job, and working part time, this would simplify my cleaning and keep my house looking like new again.

  23. There’s nothing more satisfying than a good clean – and the rug doctor looks like it can deliver that hard-to-achieve mummy satisfaction! Whether it be snot, vomit, food or pets – our poor rugs, couches and car cop it daily! I need this in my life to save and restore my items to their former glory!!

  24. The portabilty of this carpet cleaner would be one of my favourite features. My family have had to move into my elderly mother’s home to help care for her. My mother’s carpets came out of the ark and with dogs adding to the mix,, including a very old dog that keeps having little accidents out of both ends, a portable carpet cleaner would just be the bees knees.. So easy to clean messes no matter where they are. Trying to keep the carpets clean and healthy is no easy task in this house. I ned all the help I can get.

  25. Keeley Mathews Reply

    Would love to win this to get all the yoghurt from my little monster off our couches and rugs 🙂

  26. Love that it’s small, compact and portable and would be handy to have one on hand. With owning a dog that lives inside as well as a toddler there are always accidents happening on the carpets and rugs.

  27. Samantha Riley Reply

    With 3 whirlwinds we vacuum daily and still have dirty carpets. This would save us 100’s every year especially as we are renting.

  28. Alyson Dunlop Reply

    3 boys children with busy messy lives is a recipe for muddy dirty carpet. Whoever decided beige carpet was a good idea was crazy. Perhaps this is our solution!

  29. katrina stubbs Reply

    i have 3 cats that like making messes on my carpets. I’m so lazy and need a reliable cleaner like this to clean it. I may not have rel kids but my furbabies give me grief

  30. I NEED one of these spot cleaners as I have kids that make a mess everywhere and a dog that likes to pee once he’s let in the house!!

  31. Courtney Foster Reply

    I NEED THIS AMAZING MACHINE IN MY LIFE with a whole house that is cream carpet (Except from wet areas) and 2 small kids plus a dog who sometimes thinks its ok to wee on the carpet. This would be a godsend to win. I love the fact that its compact and I can do the spots as they arise instead of having to get a professional out and move all the furniture. Pick me pick me

  32. Tammi Sheppard Reply

    My car and house carpets would love a bit of the Rug Doctor Treatment!

  33. I would love to try this carpet cleaner! Our carpet is only 18 months old and as much as I try to keep it clean it has huge stains everywhere (mainly from puppy and toddler training!) They’re not so noticeable in the day, but once the lights come on it’s very embarrassing. I have tried natural cleaners, chemical cleaners, lots of scrubbing, that stuff you sprinkle on and vacuum off. Nothing is working!! I would love to be able to have clean carpet, not be embarrassed when people visit, and do this all without the harmful chemicals!

  34. Rachel Tindale Reply

    I love it because it is portable. I can use it on my carpets, furniture and car. I have 2 cats, 1x dog and a beautiful little boy who loves his yoghurt not to mention his yoghurt mess haha
    I would love to keep on top of all fabrics in my household with this spot cleaner.

  35. Anne Common Reply

    The fact that this could be used not only on my rugs but my chairs lounges and car is incredibly convenient . Have you seen what a two year old can get up to? Portable yes please ! Love it .

  36. Cleaning chemical free is not only a extreamly important thing around the house but and amazing way to help the environment

  37. We have a ‘white’ rug that doesn’t look terribly white any more. We also have a couch where the fabric has gone kind of shiny, I think from oils from the skin and general grubbiness. I would be very interested to see what happens to that. Plus I have a husband, two young children, a large dog and a cat so I’m sure I can find more possibilities!!

  38. Jess brierley Reply

    With two daughters under 4, a cat and a husband our carpets, cushions, couches and rugs are a bit worse for wear. We could definitely use a quick and easy but effective way of cleaning up the wide variety of messes that happen everyday , without having to rent a machine or hire someone to do it for us. Especially living in a rental!

  39. Lennareinhard Reply

    I have a rare brain and heart condition and have no immunity, the children have compromised immunity as well so our house needs to be clean as sterile as possible. Also the puppy and baby we have had lots of accidents and we pay professionals to come in every 6 months But on disability benefits and single parent it’s extremely tight to pull off but we need this for our health

  40. Virginia crank Reply

    Would be fantastic I have rugs all my house lovely to zap around with the rug doctor and give them a clean

  41. With a very messy clumsy little boy & a dog who loves rolling on the carpet & sneaking onto the lounge
    Add in kid friends having sleep overs
    My carpet & lounge is disgusting
    No point getting new carpet as master messy will have something new to destroy
    The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner
    Will save me from embarrassment when friends pop over

  42. With boisterous twins and a dog I need help cleaning my carpets, accidental spills, accidents all round every day!

  43. Cass Menzel Reply

    This machine would be a god send in our house. With a spate of recent sickness in our house and the mess that goes with it, it would be a dream to give the carpets a good clean.

  44. Christine Dattilo Reply

    This would be super handy in our house because we have a 10yr old, 4 cats and rabbit in the house and they all love making a mess on the carpets and the lounge. I love that its portable so we can do the cars too.

  45. Lalenya Sutton Reply

    I live in a tiny unit with a large dog and a 5 year old, needless to say that spills happen alot! The rug doctor would be super handy for keeping ontop of my well used carpetted areas!

  46. Joanne Currie Reply

    I would love this as my kids are constantly putting stains in the carpet and I have a child who loves to take off her nappy. My car also needs a thorough clean inside.

  47. Stacey dobson Reply

    With two kids, a cat and crappy carpet that marks so easily this would be a dream come true to try.

  48. I love that I can use it on everything, just like my kids love to spill stuff on everything! They will make for perfect before and after pictures! I have a rug that I love which is now sadly rolled up in the garage due to stains that won’t budge, I would love to bring it back to life! I also love that the rug doctor is chemical free, with the amount of spill and stain cleaning needed in a house with little children I would be worried using chemicals so frequently.

  49. Diane White Reply

    Rug doctor please come to my aid, I have 2 teenagers, a toddler and a cat. No amount of CPR could revive the life of my carpet but willing to give it one more go if you choose me to review your product….not only do my kids insist on trailing their wet, dirty, soggy footy boots around the carpeted rooms of the house, they use my couches as somewhere to wipe their hands and face (toddler not the 14 year old) My once high pile rug now descreetly hides sultanas and the remanents of the toddlers breakfast…. Daily vacuuming…..can only do so much. Please HELP Desperate Di…

  50. Living in a rural area we are always tracking mud through the house. We’ve just about ruined one of my grandmothers rug from all the red mud. With a cat, a dog and a 9 month old, the fact that this cleaner is portable would be a lifesaver to take from room to room to clean!

  51. Melissa Zammit Reply

    I love that’s it Chemical Free, what better way to ensure my family are safe and happy than with a chemical free cleaning system meaning clean floors and a happy family

  52. Catherine Gangur Reply

    Rug Doctor is a reputable company of 40 years and chemical free, what’s more to love?! My stained carpets for love a freshen up.

  53. Living rural with two cats, a large dog, and a child that regularly finds creative ways to “decorate” the house often results in stains that are extremely difficult to remove – I would LOVE the opportunity to trial Rug Doctor’s portable spot cleaner!!

  54. With 2 Children and 2 dogs would love to try a Rug Dr even me and hubby makes messes lol spilt coffee drinks dinner ect would make the perfect thing for our house hold

  55. Danielle Wilkins Reply

    With a toddler, a newborn and a dog this would be a lifesaver. I could take it anywhere in my house and use it on upholstery or furniture too

  56. I have a husband who wears work boots through the house, two young boys who are like mini cyclones, a dog who loves mud and dirt and cats who like to leave their hair everywhere – my carpets and car interior are trashed! I need help! I love that this is chemical free and safe for my whole family! I’d love to give it a try and see if it can handle my family’s chaos!

  57. Heather Edward Reply

    As a single parent money is always tight and I don’t have the money to have a professional come in and clean my carpets which are looking a bit worse for wear with two kids still at home, a dog and cat and two grandsons 3 years and 11 months visiting regularly. Using a rug doctor every day keeps the stains away and sounds like just what the doctor ordered

  58. Two kids, two cats and brand new carpets. I’m scared and I know I’ll need backup

  59. Bronwyn Teede Reply

    I like the sound of the no harsh chemicals with kids that is always a plus! I think our household can definitely put it through it’s paces our 3 yo loves cooking in her play kitchen however she loves to use real ingredients when mummy and daddy have their backs turned and has caused some epic carpet messes just last week was a whole bottle of soy sauce. Please help a mama out!!

  60. I would love to try the Rug Dr. With 3 kids the house could use a deep clean. I love that it is chemical free.

  61. With a toddler and a newborn the chemical free cleaning is extremely appealing. That plus the ability to clean up the messes created on my carpets and lounges by said toddler and newborn!!

  62. Janise Roberts Reply

    We have 2 Labrador pups 3 kids Rug Doctor to our rescue to help us have a happier household. THANKYOU

  63. With a grubby 6yo and her friends, a grubby hubby and two grubby cats it’s hard to keep up. The Rug Dr looks like it would be a perfect addition to my grubby family, to keep them and the carpets clean!

  64. Donna Leysley Reply

    I love that it can clean so many different things and with kids and pets in the house this sounds like just what I need to keep my rugs / carpets clean

  65. I have three very messy kids! They have accidents in bed, squish food into my rugs and spill drinks in my car! Everything needs cleaning. I’d love to be able to try the Rug Doctor portable cleaner to bring these things up clean and sanitized…

  66. What I love about the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is that it is developed by professional grade carpet cleaners that I can easily use and that it is chemical free. It can be easily manoeuvred and can clean up all stains. We are currently renting. We have a carpet in our living room and all of the bedrooms. One of the bedroom became our 3-year-old daughter’s playroom. The carpet in our living room is colourful but unfortunately, the stains on it are a sight to behold. There have been vomit stains (yes, vomit) that try as I might are there to stay. Chocolate stains, coffee stains, and even clay (Playdough) stains are there too, to name a few. Now the playroom…it has clay (Playdough) stains and *gasp* pink slime stain. I have scrubbed and scrubbed but the stains are still evident. Did I mention we were renting? We would very much appreciate being chosen.

  67. With 2 kids and 2 cats the rug doctor would come in handy with its easy to use compact size meaning I could use it for many things not only the carpet like cleaning the stains off the seats of my car left by the children and chocolate etc!… The rug doctor would be fantastic to clean up all the family messes!!

  68. With a new baby, and an old house with carpets we can’t replace right now, a spot cleaner would help keep my house looking great and clean up those gross baby stains!

  69. The portability of this carpet cleaner would be a huge boon in our household. With child gates, mixed surfaces (from vinyl, tiles, floorboards and carpet) and rugs scattered throughout it would be very useful to have an appliance that can handle moving over any surface/ obstacle.

  70. Lisa Summerell Reply

    Id love to trial the rug doctor, it states it has 2x more suction power than the best on the current market. I constantly hear this with all vacuums, and it never seems to be any better so really intrigued to put this to the test. With 2 small children who seem to very rarely listen and hear me when i say no food or drink in the bedroom, we constantly seem to have new stains appearing and only noticed once set in.
    We have lovely gravel entrance which makes for dirty muddy shoes trampled in and around the house not just by the kids but dad, with his heavy footsteps things get smooshed into that carpet a little easier. Then we have the dog and cat-probly sitting on a bunch of cat hair now.
    To the hardest part- we suffer with asthma and some allergies so finding a product that doesnt just move the dust and dirt around and also chemical free is a real tough one.
    Now the fact i could use it on more than just my carpet has left me with ideas popping out of my head, new lounge with cover and stained, car seats, mattresses? The list could be endless. The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner has got me enthused and excited to do some house work and to show off just how dirty my carpets really are.

  71. With one very large labrador and one small 21 month old tornado in my home the carpets and rugs get a hefty workout on a daily basis. The car upholstery doesn’t fair much better so a portable spot cleaner would be a dream come true.

    I like how this is not so bulky,
    Having animals and kids our carpets Chet very dirty.
    I would love to try this out on my messy carpets

  73. Tiarna Stafford Reply

    Man this is just what the doctor ordered! With several kids under 3, and living in a rental property the last thing we need is to get in trouble for dirty carpets. And dirty carpets we have at the moment unfortunately! I would love to test, review and enjoy this product and at least restore the sense of pride I had in my home before my children learnt to drink out of a cup! From berry stains to juice you just can’t hide the residue they leave when spilt!

  74. I love the versatility of the rug doctor portatable spot cleaner. I desperately need one because I live with two long haired boys and am renting the house, with the landlords living next door!

  75. Andreea Nicolescu Reply

    Love that it is safe and chemical free, easy to move and versatile

  76. Having 2Children, 3xl dogs our forget gets very dirty.Id love to.have something on hand to clean there mess up Please. My Family are messy but lifes like that.

  77. With 3 children under 4 spills and food on floor is definate , this would help great with those spills on our cream carpet and my filfy lounge i love how its not bulky like some and its portable

  78. This would be amazing my mattresses, couch, rugs and carpet all need a good deep clean to remove stains and bring back the original colours. They’re all looobg very grey at the moment. No matter how much o vacuum it still looks dirty

    As a new mum of a little boy and a partner to a bricklayer our carpets and cars are filthy. This little machine will help me clean all the dirt away with ease.

  83. With 2 very messy kids mixed with a house full of cream carpet this would be amazing

  84. Sarah Wallace Reply

    the fact that this is a safe product is a massive yes for me. We have a dog, cat, baby and husband so this would definitely help with the mess!

  85. I love that it is portable and chemical free way to clean my carpets. I have very messy clumsy kids and mix that with an old cat and 2 dogs. I haven’t found a company or cleaner that can completely clean the stains. I need this to try and hopefully be satisfied with stain removal

  86. The best part will be not stressing about stains and spots anymore. Just as we vacuum, this will be used to clean rugs and couch

  87. I just love that ii can use it whenever i need it instead of having to get someone in to do my carpets. With 2 young kids & a dog I’m going to get mess & this would get it clean sooner rather than later!

  88. Nashwa El Hosseny Reply

    Already thinking about everything I can use it to clean and making a mental note of where the stains are! Would mostly love to use it on my car. With two kids it’s a stain covered mess in there. Constantly. We will definitely be making great use of it!

    I love that I won’t have to keep buying small rugs from Kmart every time we have a rental inspection!

  90. with 3 children a new puppy an old aged cat (who i am.sure has dementia) and a a brand new house the small portability of the rug doctor is perfect for those smaller clean up jobs.. kids and food on the carpets, couches and dining chairs that need freshening up. toilet training a puppy and accidents made by my beautiful kitty who’s just not as sharp or steady on his feet as he used to be.

  91. With 3 teens , 3 chihuahuas, a cat and numerous other animals my carpets and rugs have had years of punishment and need something tough to clean them back to looking good again.

    How awesome is this product. A portable cleaner for any situation….PRICELESS.

  94. Pretty sure my kids have left a 5 course meal in the back of my car! Vacuuming will only go soooo far to clenching that mess out of the seats! Not to mention the milk and cordial that seems to get spilled on every fabric (think couch, dining chairs, carpet) in the house!

    With 2 kids under 5 and a dog this would be a life saver – they love to make a mess wherever they go – especially in the car too!

    I would love to try this cleaner… have quite a few stains due to a crazy 4 year old and husband too… which I have to hid under rugs. Would be soo nice to be able to clean them in my own with out expensive carpet cleaning companies…

  97. I love how there are no nasty chemicals used. I have a recently crawling baby and I don’t want him crawling on carpet full of chemicals. My carpets, couches and car seats are in dire need of this product. Milk stains, food stains and doggy stains. They never end. Plus being in a rental it would save us so much.

  98. Kristin Booth Reply

    I would love one of these, my car seats are disgusting! and my carpets could use a clean too

  99. I would love to try this spot cleaner to get to properly clean the carpet in our new home, the kids, the cat and (sometimes) the grown ups too are good at making a mess on the carpet and also the car seats and it’s so difficult to clean!

  100. Tarnia Fedele Reply

    That it gets rid of ugly stains! Enough said!
    There are mud prints, drink spills and more covering our rug!

  101. I need one of these to test because my floor, car, and car seats could ALL use a clean with the stains and spills 3 kids (and myself ) dish out! This might save us from needing a new couch straight away!

  102. Oh I would LOVE this amazing piece of equipment in my life.. I am a mother of 4 and we have carpet everywhere in our house – yes even under the kitchen table.. This would be a great addition to our household and would be used a lot…

    I love the idea of the rug doctor portable spot cleaner being able to reach all the hard to clean parts because for some reason all the corners of my rugs and carpets are incredibly dirty and get more punishment than you can imagine from 4 cricket and rugby loving kids. Also being chemically free I know it is safe for my kids and cat.

  104. Love that it’s chemical free. With 3 kids and a puppy about to join our family we need all the help we can get keeping the carpets and upholstery clean.

  105. I have the worst carpet in the world. Over the years with pet stains, kids and general wear my carpet never looks clean. I have tried heaps of various carpet spot cleaners and all i end up with is a mark where it was spot cleaned or the mark seems to stay. With the Rug Doctor Portable Spot cleaner it would be like having a carpet cleaner in the house all the time. How Convenient.

  106. Kelly Baldock Reply

    The rug doctor would be perfect for my family as we have just moved in to our new house and I don’t think the carpets were ever cleaned plus, with 4 kids ranging from 2 to well adult child there is always accidents happening. The rug doctor is perfect in everyway, looks so much easier to use then all the other machines out there.

    With a clumsy boy, a baby who likes to randomly spit milk at everyone, a dog who wipes his grubby, slobbery face over everything and a hubby who’s not only a builder but a car enthusiast, our carpets are full of stains! I would love to trial The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner so hopefully our half renovated house looks a little less derelict and I won’t feel so guilty about having the baby doing tummy time on the ground.
    I love that it seems so small and portable so I don’t have another giant appliance taking up too much space!!!

  108. With a husband that works around oil and grease (And walks his boots through the house), a 1 year old who loves to drop his food in the rug, and cats who love to walk all over the sofa I’d love to review the rug doctor. I love that it has 2x the suction power to get a deeper clean, the fact that’s it’s not big and bulky, and also that it’s chemical free which means it’s extra safe around my son and cats.

  109. Would love to try this to get the stains out of the carpet in my daughter’s bedroom after my kids thought smooshing pears into it would be a fun idea.

  110. My husband would be absolutely ecstatic with the Rug Doctor. (As would I, but he would be over the moon in particular). Our daughter spreads crumbs and mess like fairy dust despite our best efforts to keep things clean! Banana is her favourite, so much fun to squish into the carpet, and even more fun for us to try and clean, the Rug Doctor would definitely put a smile on our faces when we look at pur carpet!

  111. With 2 cats, a 4 year old and a 4week old. My couch has managed to gain a very disgusting marble effect. Made from some terrible material, even water marks leave a stain. It’s embarrassing. I’ve tried supermarket sprays but they don’t work very well. Then there is the yoghurt stains throughout the car, after my then 2 year old decided to ” do the propeller”. The rug Doctor would be a god send. Please let me try the rug Doctor.

  112. Not sure who makes more mess!
    Me(miss 30) or miss 3yo and with one on the way this could be perfect we are regular rug dr hireers

  113. With 2 messy young boys- one of which is a toilet training toddler, a dog and a partner who works a dirty factory job my carpets need this! I love that it’s chemical free so I know that it’s safe for my human and fur babies alike. It will save me money from booking a professional clean in every few months and having access to use it as frequently as I like will help to keep my carpets so much cleaner!

  114. Carmel Corry Reply

    Loving that it has 2 x the suction power compared to leading portable spot cleaners! Clean is wonderful but the dryer the carpet is left, the faster it can be walked on again! With a household of gardeners, DIY experts, artists, craft enthusiasts, dog and child….our carpets get a lot of frequent traffic. Our floor areas are in constant need of more than just a vacuum and is covered not only in general grime but marks and stains. The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner would help me to keep on top of the general maintenance with easy and professional technique. No more moving the furniture to hide dirty marks when the visitors arrive!

      Oh! And the cars! Don’t forget the cars
      too! How easy to get the interior clean with a Rug Doctor on hand!

    Our cream carpet is stained and spotty
    I hate how it looks so disgustingly grotty!
    3 kids, a cat and a hubby’s shoes,
    keeping it clean makes me turn to booze!

    Sadly though, wine does not help,
    instead I often cry and yelp,
    “Pleeeeease, I need the Rug Doctor spot cleaner”,
    before I need to get much meaner!

    Chemical free is so appealing,
    as is the ‘carpet-friendly’ wheeling,
    but best of all it removes stubborn stains,
    allowing my cream carpet to look clean again!

  116. Oh gosh! We are currently staying in a holiday house owned by family. With white carpet. Yep. And a messy toddler. And a baby on the way. And with me having insane dust mite allergies this rug doctor would be my lifesaver! Not to mention cleaning these floors that have never been shampooed before! They would come up brilliantly!

    I’m a mum of a 5yo & 9mo (who is learning to feed himself), an Aunty/carer for my 7yo niece and disabled 5yo niece & owner of 2 dogs, my house is trashed most days. Whilst it gets cleaned when the kids are in bed those stubborn food stains & kiddie accidents stains in my carpets/couch/dining room chairs/car seats has become an eye sore and I often “hide” them under cushions or rugs so not to be embarrassed when visited. The rug doctor should prescribe my house it’s chemical free TLC.

  118. With 3 kids, 2 dogs and an affinity for red wine, a chemical free way to clean the carpets would be wonderful.

  119. With 2 babies under 2 (and one a newborn at that) I love the fact that it is chemical free and I don’t have to worry about letting them go on or near the carpet after it’s been cleaned

  120. adrienne Harries Reply

    Doctor Doctor come clean my rug
    the kids kicked over a full coffee mug
    Oh no red wine
    To clean Like new again would be a favourite of mine
    Pick up and carry to the stain
    Easy to use no back pain
    suck up the mess with style
    No chemicals will make me smile

    3 x kids (4 if you count the husband!!) & 2 x double coated dogs this machine would be a lifesaver! Compact and convenient, and it looks very easy to use! Please pick me!!

    What’s not to love about the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner. It has so many great features that this Mumma loves. Features such as an oscillating motorized brush for a deep clean, a wide opening waste water tank lid for an easy clean up at the end. In addition both water tanks are removable, how greats that. Finally throw in the fact that it’s chemical free cleaning and you’ve got me hooked. We need a Rug Doctor in our life as with two little messy makers, one Big Daddy sized messy maker and pets, this mummy needs a hand to keep her carpets and upholstery clean.

  123. My daughter fell in love with a puppy and I couldn’t say no!
    The toilet training is not going so well!
    For a small dog it has the biggest bladder.
    Same puppy has annoyed the neighbours enough for them to throw chillis over the fence only for me to find it eating it on my not so white outside couch.
    It now has red splotches and muddy footprints all over it.
    I think this is what I need

  124. Fiona McNeil Reply

    Wow this would be awesome! We moved into a new house and the carpets are bad from the previous owners. Plus I have a dog and 2 boys, we live next to a park and they love to play outside and make mess. It would be great to use on my car seats! Please!

  125. With 7 kids and 2 dogs an outdoor working husband who walks through the house in his dirty work boots, i am in need of the rug doctor cleaner.
    I would love to have the new looking carpets again minus all the stains

  126. 4 bedrooms with carpet, large rug in the lounge, upholstery couches and 3 daughters who love nail polish, make up and glitter our floor coverings need some much needed TLC would love the chance to try it out!!

  127. With a new baby, 2 dogs and a cat there are daily messes and we have to clean them up. Having this would mean we could properly clean up our rugs and couches.

  128. Cecilia Warrick Reply

    In reality I need new flooring,
    but our lack of funds is…er, boring,
    I’ve got stains that are now that old,
    they’re ready to move out of home!

    I love that it is chemical free,
    to clean our family home safely.
    I love the portability of Rug Doctor spot cleaner,
    to try it I just couldn’t be keener!

  129. With 2 kids a dog and a cat there is always someone making a mess or spilling something and my partner who works in the automotive industry so brings his greasy shoes on my carpets with the portable spot cleaner I would finally be able to clean my rugs and lounge eagerly and keep them clean

  130. Our puppies have made a total mess of our carpet and rugs, and with a baby on the way, things are only going to get worse! I love how easy it looks to use!

  131. Would be great for all the sensitive allergies in my household. Wouldn’t have to hire the one from bunnings anymore!

  132. Oh man, please pick me, pick me! I have an old blind chihuahua who has had a few accidents along with two kids who enjoy craft ALOT. I need this so much!

  133. Chemical free and compact. With a son who has sensory problems he hates big loud vacuums so to have a small spot cleaner would make life so much easier and less stressful for him. I cannot get my carpets cleaned as he gets severe anxiety and panics with the noise. He also has severe eczema so chemical free is a godsend as he is always rolling around the place and laying on the floors playing. This would be a life saver in our house for sure.

  134. Between Mr 5, my hubby and the cats I have a tough job keeping the carpets clean. I love that the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is so easy to use and gives me no excuses to keep my carpets, couches and car seats clean at all times!!!

  135. Christine Sutton Reply

    I love that you can have a carpet cleaner sitting in your cupboard ready and waiting to clean up any spills or messes as they happen. With kids and a dog, that’s super handy for carpets, lounges and the car!

  136. Teyarna Tolcher Reply

    I love that the rug doctor is chemical free which is really important to me as myself and my 2 kids are very sensitive to certain chemicals. Which means finding a stain remover for our carpet and couches can be quite difficult. Our whole house is carpeted with the exception of the bathroom and the kitchen and with 2 kids under 4 who love there arts and crafts as well as all of the stubborn stains from spilt drinks to food and the odd wee accident from toilet training this would be an absolute blessing to have and try.

  137. Rachel Barnett Reply

    So much to love about this miracle machine! For me the most attractive feature, other than how clean my floors, couches, matresses, car….could be; would be that its chemical free and with boys aged 9, 6 and 10 months it would get plenty of use!

  138. Jiana Sumner Reply

    We currently live in a rental that is fully carpeted on two levels including stairs (just not bathrooms). We have a 9mo, 3yo, two chihuahuas, my messy husband and myself so the carpets are copping a hiding. With the 9month old dragging and throwing solids onto the carpet we desperately need this machine so please pick us.

  139. Between the pooch, my two cats and my beautiful (but terribly messy) daughter – the carpets look terrible!! Im forever scrubbing at stains.. almost daily! The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner would change my LIFE! And ill be able to have peace of mind knowing its a chemical free clean, ensuring both my children and pets are safe!

  140. With 3 children and 2 dogs it would make cleaning up after them so much easier and quicker. I love that it’s portable and light weight. I would love the chance to try it and see if it works as well as promised

  141. With grandbabies puking and furbabies puking and pooping it would be wonderful to have a cleaner that can do these small jobs to perfection without nasty chemicals wafting through the house.

  142. We live on 5 acres on a dirt road, with 3 kids a husband 2 cats a dog and chickens. Our carpets are very light and even though we try to have a shoes off rule its not always possible. And with 2 fireplaces dirt and carpets seem to go hand in hand. This spot cleaner would be a life saver for spilks and potty training accidents to our kittens mess. I could give the spot cleaner a true work out abd an honest review.

  143. between the cats, the dogs and kids
    they taking turn to make a mess
    and thorough clean my carpet needs
    to make me happy and not depressed

  144. The Rug Doctor is portable and powerful, great for cleaning up the mess our kids and pets manage to make. The best thing of all is no more expensive calls to the carpet cleaner who have in the past left our carpets sopping wet.

  145. Kids, dogs, rabbits, and cats,
    I find it hard to keep a clean mat.
    The Rug Doctor would make cleaning a breeze,
    Its portable, powerful – it will do it with ease.

    I only have carpets. In the place I rent. I have 2 kids 3 and 6. 3rd is the husband and 4th is the dog (sleeps inside). We are due for a carpet clean and I can honestly say, that I will be able to give the machine a good work out.
    I have tried renting equipment and hiring people in the past and moving your whole house around is not ideal in such a short space of time. If I had a spot cleaner it would be used weekly. To keep up with my kids.

  147. Kids, pets, husband and renovations make for messy grimy carpets but also couches and chairs. I won’t even start on the state of the car! Something like this would hugely improve the cleanliness of the house, kids allergies and my sanity.

  148. Anita Flaim Reply

    With a household of 4 kids, a man child (hubby), 2 inside only cats and a dog this sounds like a dream machine! Between car hairballs that get thrown up – always on the carpet, not the tiles! Hubby also left a 3 litre milk bottle in his car for so long that it exploded and we still can’t get rid of the old milk smell, the Rug Doctor would be purrffect for us.

  149. I have 3 children, 1 husband, 2 dogs and 4 cats. I need this in my life. I’ve hired Britex so many times ive lost count. It Always works perfectly and is easy to use. I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE

    i have dark carpet so everything shows up on it and with two kisd an 18 month old who drops less food than the 47 year old the carpet needs spot cleaned after every meal and the retractable handle to reach extra tricky areaswould be great for cleaning up the ice coffe the 47 year old always spills in his work car

  151. With a cat and 2 young kids, multiple daily stains on the carpet is the norm. Would love to try this out!

  152. Alysia Sheehy Reply

    I love the fact it’s portable! We have a 2 storey house and it’s hard lugging the hired machine up the stairs. It would be great to use on our carpets and rugs as the carpets are beige and look horrible! We try to hire a machine twice a year to get rid of stains but it’s so hard as they leave the carpets wet for over a day. With 4 adults, 1 four year old and 3 dogs our carpets really need this!

  153. With a trade hubby, 2 very active young boys, 2 crazy dogs and renovations our carpet has seen better days! Would love to try it out, seems so easy to use.

    With 3 kids 2 dogs and a man child a portable rug doctor would be amazing with is versatility for breathing new life into my carpets, rugs and the car I would be the envy of all my Mum friends

  155. With two big messy pups (who have left paw print marks on the carpet in our new rental that won’t come off!), my partner and I, a toddler who just started walking and another one on the way this would be such a great cleaner to have. It would be used often and would be a great addition, thank you for this opportunity.

  156. With a 3 year old and and a 3 month old I love that it’s a safe and chemical-free way to clean your house without harming the environment or the family.

  157. 3 kids, a husband that often forgets to take his work boots off before traipsing through the house and a spoilt Labrador that is inside more often than not! Dirty carpets, dirty couch and a dirty car! I’d love to put the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner to the test! It’s so handy that it’s portable, allowing me to use it both in the house and in the car. I also love the fact it’s chemical free – super important to me with eczema prone kiddies!

I also would loooooove to clean out our 3 car seats with it as well!! Please choose us!!

  163. This would be so awesome!! My 18 month old loves getting fruit and yogurt mushed into the carpet at home and in the car!!!

  164. Wine drops on carpets, and snot on the couches.
    Paint on the curtains and spew on the mattress.
    Dog urine patches and icy pole stains, these are a few of my daily complaints!
    When the kids scream, when the dog barks, When the husband moans, please let me review this machine before my workload grows!

  165. Portable!! Sweet!!
    If there is any man made device that you can DIY and clean MY carpets…I’d be absolutely amazed!! I dont believe it but ready to accept the challenge! Bring it on!!

  166. i love that you can see the clean water on one side and the dirty water on the other ,i need it just to see what colour the water from my carpet will be

  167. I have 3 small messy boys. We rent, so we are stuck with a grubby carpet. I’d love to give the rug dr a workout on our floors. I think we have the perfect testing ground

    I love that it is portable and quick to get ready to use! I would love one permanently in our home! My husband is literally scrubbing down our couch as I type this after our 2 year old son decided it made the perfect napkin! With another son due in 8 weeks and a 6 year old art and craft addicted daughter, The Rug Doctor would become part of the family and definitely get a good use from our couches, rugs, dining chairs, car seats and so so much more!!!

  170. This would be amazing to spot clean my lounge and carpet which I feel like I can never get clean! I have 2 kids that are constantly spilling things and even peeing on our carpet not to mention the tiny dog with a mini bladder that seems to always do an excitement pee whenever anything makes a noise it feels like I’m cleaning the floors and lounge more often then I shower (which is once a day btw) I would love to test this out and report back how wonderful this product is!

  171. Recarpeted recently and hubby wanted some disgusting chocolate brown colour. No, I insisted on cream to match our wooden furniture. Looks beautiful until the first drop of coffee, tomato sauce, gravy and mud from the garden. Alse recently became a grandparent, so upchucks of lamb and vegetables are common. The Rug Doctor helps me clean those annoying spots without chemicals and keeps my carpet looking new!

  172. I love the portability of the rug doctor spot cleaner
    With three boys , a quick easy spot cleaner is just the thing our family could use!

  173. Two kids, two inside cats, a puppy toilet training and an old dog, this would be my dream appliance to keep my Lounges, carpets and car hygienic and clean.

  174. How awesome would this be? I have two dogs and a toddler, so spills and messes are just a part of my life now haha!
    I would love to be involved in testing this cleaner and giving it a run for it’s money.

    With 2 boys under 4, a dog with dark long fur that sheds most of the year, and 6 cousins that love to visit and picnic on the lounge room rug – a portable wet dry cleaner wind be a go-to send.

  176. Hayley Jennings Reply

    I would LOVE LOVE to try this out. I have 3 kids under the age of 6 plus a dog & our carpets (especially the toy room) is disgusting! No matter how many times I clean up & scrub after them (biscuit crumbs, cake, lollipops, glitter, poo/wee accidents, chewed tissue, vomit, dribble, dirt, dog food, spilt milk…you name it, we have it on our carpet) it gets dirty again within seconds & some of the smells leftover seemed permanently ingrained into the material now. I would do anything to test this machine as i just can’t seem to get our carpets clean (& they’re not even a year old!) and it’s too expensive & time consuming to get a professional cleaner out on a regular basis. Not only would I like to test it on our carpets but also some cushions that don’t have removable covers & potentially even our curtains & mattesses that also have unsavoury stains.

  177. Courtney Austin Reply

    I love the compact size! It would make it easy to get it out for a quick clean! With two toddlers and a newborn I would appreciate this so clean up the food mess and spit ups from the baby! My car seats could also do with a good clean!!

    With a 9 year old boy, a dog, a cat and a husband who are always in and out with dirty feet and shoes the rug doctor machine would come in handy! Don’t want the stress of having to rent the cleaning machines that you have to lug upstairs. This is just the right size and would love to see how good our carpets come up!

  179. Nicole Pettifor Reply

    I would love to be involved with testing and reviewing the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner as with a newborn baby, a Labrador x Great Dane, a turtle who likes to roam around and a husband with a dirty job; our carpets go from looking beautiful and clean, to filthy in the blink of an eye!
    Living in a new development, there is plenty of dust around from all the vacant blocks and with winter soon to be arriving, muddy paw prints are a given!
    I would also love the opportunity to test out the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner on our vehicles.
    The most appealing feature to me is that the cleaning is chemical free! I’m also extremely intrigued and would love to test the suction on our thick carpets!

    This would be amazing to trust such a compact rug doctor. With 2 young boys, a dog, a hubby and living rural with a drought and lists of dust walked into the house I certainly could give this a real try for every other family.

  181. I have a gorgeous little kitty, he’s a Maine Coone breed and has that much hair, which in turn leads to furball’s all over the place….plus I always spill my mugs of tea as I walk it from the kitchen to the lounge…I would probably use this on a daily basis, actually I definitely would….

  182. I have 3 boys 8 4 and 6 months I can see this being very useful to my life

  188. I love a portable cleaning tool for sure. With 2 little ones the house and car keep getting messy and full of hard to remove stains. This will be super handy throughout the day. I would love to review it.

  189. Eliminating all mess and stains with ease, would be a breeze. No nasty chemicals making easier to breathe.

  190. With 2 boys, one 7 and one 2, living with carpets is a very scary thing. I feel like I’m constantly running after them trying to scrub up messes they make before it stains. Especially in a rental!!
    My 2 year old recently got into my make up and painted the floor with my Kylie Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette (R. I. P.) and despite trying different brands of carpet cleaners as well as home methods, I just can’t get the stain out!!

  194. It’s not only my saviour for children’s spills and our two dogs’ fur and accidents, but it’s portable making my life so much easier and reaching those places that I can’t usually get to with a plug in cord.

  195. I would love to try one
    with a 2.5 year old toilet training and a Dog this would be amazing

  196. The amount of use I’d get out of a rug doctor would be unbelievable. I feel like I’d have a use for it everyday for a year then start back at the beginning again! I’ve got 2 kids 3 including the husband and a very energetic, loves to dig dog so don’t think I need to say anymore lol

    My photo is from the lounge room in front of tv. As you can see it’s got spills & marks and desperately needs a clean. I have 3 kids & 2 little dogs that all add to the stains. One Puppy has started going to the toilet on the carpet now and then mistaking it for her grass pee mat. We moved here recently from a house with no carpet and the adjustment for all the young ones is making a lot of work. It would be so tremendously helpful to be able to do spot cleaning as that’s exactly the issue in my home. It’s just individual spot marks. We were in drought in townsville until recently also. So all of a sudden the mud was being brought in from outside. Would love a chance to be a tester. I’m a reviewer for other companies but never had a chance to test a cleaning product. Amazing chance for whoever you choose. Thank you.

    With 5 kids aged between 11 and 11months it would be great to be able to really clean the carpets and dining chairs!!

    I love that I would be able to clean up after my kids and pets ( and husband) straight away with the rug doctor spot cleaner. With it being lightweight and easy to use my sofa, rugs, carpet and even car will always look like new.

  203. This would be awesome, we have 3 boys and live on acreage. The machine being lightweight, portable and having the retractable handle to reach tricky spaces is ideal.

    We previously had an elderly cat who peed everywhere and though we did our best, the floors have never recovered after she passed in Feb. Add to that a dog, cat and a newborn our already crappy carpet is really start to look sad with mystery stains appearing weekly, we can’t afford new flooring at this point in time so the Rug Doctor sounds like a godsend.

  205. with a little one year old baby whirl wind this would be so so handy. We already have hand marks on our couch.

  206. Having 2 kids and one crawling soon, keeping the floor exceptional clean is a must. Rug Doctor sounds like a godsend.

  207. we are a family of 4 with 2 children and own an English mastiff 100kg dog that slobbering is his day time job. i am constantly trying to keep my rug clean and this looks like it would be a handy and easy way to regularly keep ontop of the mess.

  208. I could uae it daily with toddler, teens, husband & animals! The compact size and the simplicity would be a huge hit.

  209. I am always hiring a carpet cleaner to clean my carpets and rugs. With carpet in 2 thirds of the house it’s a big job. I would love the rug doctor so that I could clean the carpets in my own time and it would be such a healthier environment for the family to be in. It would also be fantastic for cleaning our fabric couches that get so dirty with 3 kids.

  210. I have a family of 3… Soon to be 4 (in a week!) and with all bedrooms carpeted with a family who drags mess into the house and a dog who WAS in the toilet training, we are desperate to try this! Even if we have to send it back!!!

  211. I love that is chemical free, my 4 month old often throws up after her feeds which has resulted in our poor couch and shag pile rug taking a beating and require a deep clean.

  212. Lisa Nichols Reply

    I love that it cleans a spot or a whole room and our carpet has kiddie fun stains that I need gone!!!!

  213. Between a headstrong and determined toddler and a house rabbit, the dark carpets in our rental take a beating. They are forever dropping food – of course not an easy food to pick up like mushy banan or a meat pie which has fallen tomato sauce face down! The little one is now at an age where he tries to help or copies our actions so where he tries to help clean up said pie, he ends up smooshing it further into the carpet! We’ve had to hire professional carpet cleaning ahead of each rental inspection which is quite costly, and have our car interior professionally cleaned because the food dropping doesn’t end at home.. we’d certainly put the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner to the test!

  214. Between 4 kids, a sloppy as heck hubby, neighbours and friends who call our place home and a pesky (but snuggly) rabbit that owns the joint, our house is always a mix of clean, dirty, spills, ‘accidents’ and spots!!! We are longing for a way to clean up Nibbles’ accidents, the kids nailpolish woopsies, and the odd squished in food stain, and this looks perfect! My car seats have also been treated poorly and the easy to carry unit would help immensely!! Please consider me 😉

  215. I have a Bissell spot cleaner and I love it. But if this rug doctor is as good as they say it should clean up the mess from my house full of boys better than my Bissell.

  216. Courtney Hawe Reply

    2 kids at school who track who knows what inside, a 1yo who loves to squish anything she can into the carpet, a husband with dirty boots and two cats who leave dirt on beds, lounges and the carpet, this rug doctor spot cleaner would be my new bestie!!!

  217. Two dogs + one cat + one toddler + one muddy husband = yucky carpets!
    I love that the rug doctor can spot clean easily making keeping our floors tidy and free from dirt that mr almost one can pick up and eat off the floor!

  218. Where do I start with 2 kids and a dog and hubby our carpets are disgusting. This product looks amazing the spot treatment is definitely what stood out for me.

  222. Emilee Body Reply

    Being a mother of four boys our home can get pretty hectic especially around meal times. There generally isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t find myself scrubbing off some foreign mark from the carpet, just recently it was red food dye and I’ll be honest it took hours to get out and a fair few adult worlds circling in my head but I eventually got there, having a Rug Doctor portable spot cleaner would have been a sanity saver with cleaning that mess us. I will say though, with having four boys this is definitely not the first food dye stain and knowing my boys it’s fair to say it will not be the last either. So to save my sanity I will say I beg you to let me try this (what some would call) lifesaving product.

  223. Danni-elle M Reply

    I love that this is portable enough to clean the couch, carpets and car interior. Between my partner, son and dog there is always a mess, particularly on my upholstered couch, to clean.

  224. I love that it’s safe and chemical free. With 2 young children I need to know my carpets are safe for them especially given they’ve been known to eat off the floor.

  225. Jodie Johnston Reply

    I love how functional it’s portability makes it. Not only would it make it so easy to whip it out for those ‘unavoidable’ stains that comes from having 3 little kids, but it would be perfect for those times that one of them spills a drink on the carpet. Or when you clean their bedroom and a mouldy apple (why must they hide them?) has made a nice little mark on the carpet under their bed it makes it so easy to pull out the Rug Doctor and voila it’s gone. Plus I’d love to be able to sit back in hubbys car again… spilt orange juice and coffee are the bane of my existence and I’m at my wits end trying to remove the smell and the unsightly stain that just won’t budge! Help me Rug Doctor, you’re my only hope!

  226. Rebecca McCrae Reply

    Portable, so I can take it from my kids messy bedroom carpets full of pen, paint & dirt, & then out to my car to clean the mess on my car seats from food & drink from every imaginable source, & then back in to clean all my house rugs from all the general dirt & grime!

  227. Love the fact that it has a motorized head! Would do such a better job than elbow grease alone

  228. I love that this is portable and will be easier to use than the large clunky ones. I look forward to removing the tough stains from kids and pets and refresh the house!

  229. I have 2 poodles, while they are pretty clean and don’t shed fur, they can be rough on the furniture. One used to love to use the armchair to rub his face and despite regular scolding, it continued for years. This handsome old chair now has a horrible brown stain and no-one will sit on that chair! I would love to have a Portable Spot Cleaner from Rug Doctor to renew the poor old chair. Then I can go clean the stain of my daughter’s carpet too!

  230. With two kids under three, a dog and a clumsy husband my carpet has definitely seen better days and could use some super loving! I love that this rug doctor is portable so I can spot clean under the high chair or the car seat with ease and effectiveness

  231. Vivienne Dobin Reply

    I love that you can clean chemical free and I would love to have one of these carpet cleaners because my husband is worse than a child constantly dropping things and refusing to take off his dirty shoes

  232. I would love to review this product as being a mum of a toddler, along with being a pet owner of a dog, my house gets thrashed each & everyday!! This product looks amazing & would help me make our home a better environment for our whole family, our pet included!!

  233. 3 kids , 2 dogs , a cat , hermit crabs……. Need i say more
    My lounge , rugs , carpets and stairs are long overdue for a clean and this product looks perfect for this mummy !!

  234. With 2 kids a dog and a cat plus the hubby this mumma is busy cleaning all the time. This little beauty would help sooo much

  235. Omg!! Where has this been all my life!?! With three ‘creative’ kids, a cat who has kidney problems and a hubby who is like an extra child this would be a saviour in our home!

  236. I have a husband, a 5 yo son, a 2 yo daughter and a 6 month old puppy. Our carpets have seen every stain imaginable – food of all sorts, drinks galore, and countless body fluids from the 3 smaller family members we don’t want a carpet cleaner, we NEED a carpet cleaner… desperately. And don’t even look in my car (I’ve lost count the number of times someone/something has vomited in there)

  237. We have 2 children, a small bird (who poos alot) and live in a rental. We are forever cleaning up spills and messes and wet bedding. So the Rug Doctor would be really family-friendly in our house. Couches, mattresses and carpets could all do with a good, regular clean. We also go 4wd, so I love that it’s portable for ease of use on all areas.

  238. Rebecca Gillett Reply

    With a husband, a toddler, a just crawling baby, a dog and 2 cats, there are endless snaccidents, mishaps, trips, spills and thrills. We need a spot cleaner like this so I can treat spots properly and hygenically right away, easily, instead of on my hands and knees scrubbing!

  239. I have 2 boys and a husband. That should be enough reason to give out 5 machines. However it looks amazing and I am sure 1 will do the job just fine. Thanks.

  240. With 3 kids, one a 6yr old boy who sleep walks at night to find the toilet and doesn’t actually find the toilet, this would be life changing for us!! Cream coloured carpets could be kept that way with this carpet cleaner!!

  244. With 5 boys plus a husband a dog and a cat lets just say my carpets get neglected a egole bunch i would absolutely love to win one of these so i could keep on top of my carpets as much as my boys tend to trash it

  245. With a mechanic, 3 kids under 6 and a dog my carpets get lots of stains. My kids like to steal milo or chocolate or peanut butter from the pantry and eat it on their long pile beige carpet… milo doesnt come out easily. We rent so we professiobally clean our carpets every 3 monthz to keep the stains at bay. One of these machines is what ive always needed maybe ill save money on professional cleans.

  246. Dirt, spills, dirt, fur and more dirt…
    A child and a dog and that means dirt…
    I NEED a rug doctor too clan clean clean.

    The fact that it’s portable is perfect for the kids messes and when the dogs pee inside. Or when the cat knocks over your drink…..

  248. With 3 kids, an elderly cat and an endless energy border collie our carpet is constantly needing a deep spot clean which would be made so much easier with a portable rug doctor so the mess could be instantly and easily cleaned.

    Yuk ! I have just dragged the rugs out now it is getting cooler and I wonder what colour they really are and then there are the ‘spots’ on the carpet – courtesy of my grandson ! Who can shift those !!!

    Prove it if you can !

  250. It looks so easy and convention to use!! My kids are forever spilling their food and drinks all over the rug and couch. This would be the biggest blessing in our lives

  251. With two kids, two dogs and two cats a little extra help would be great. This would be the perfect helping hand for our family

  252. Karen Stevens Reply

    With 2 children and a rental property full of carpet and rugs trying to keep the carpets and rugs clean is a full time job. I would love to trial the rug doctor portable spot cleaner to test the capability and results. Couches, car and carpet and rugs, put this machine to the test to see if it has what it takes and share the results with everyone.

  253. Carpets vs 3 kids, a labradoodle puppy and a stubborn cat.

    This is literally the funniest timing! We have a rental inspection tomorrow (ugh), and the house we live in has disgusting carpets from the 70s that the owners aren’t keen on changing up. So we have to deal with crazy messy naughty boys taking food in the loungeroom and we have a plastic mat under our dining table because oh I forgot to mention the dining room is carpeted too!! Classic 70s style! So not only are the carpets old, they seem to cling onto old stains like a hoarder to their sentimental junk. How fun. And the result is gross stain decorated carpets. Oh and I didn’t get back to why the timing was so funny! In our desperation (to clean but also save $$) we hired a wet vac thingy from Bunnings and I swear it’s made the stains worse! So please please please please pretty pretty please can I try the rug doctor I would so love to actually not be ashamed of my house and let people into it on account of my lovely clean carpets. (I’m on my knees here!!) Lol please pick me haha I’d love to see the difference now that we’ve also tried the Bunnings one. Be an awesome comparison.

  257. I need this so bad! My 6 year old vomited all over her carpet last week and I just can’t get rid of the smell. We also have black couches that are filthy and my car is a horror scene. I have a 2 year old as well so there are always messes!

  258. I love that The Rug Doctor is portable and would be great to use on my car’s upholstery which gets grubby from handcream marks and moisturisers. My grandchildren 2 and 4 are also quite messy and accident prone leaving stains on the carpet. The Rug Doctor would certainly be a very useful addition in my household.

  259. Jena crosbie Reply

    Living in a farming community, my house is prone to having dust everywhere through the house, the carpet being the hardest place to keep cleAn. So every month I hire the rug doctor to do the carpets. And for a night the carpets look an smell amazing. Then my toilet training son decides he can’t make it to the toilet, my newborn power chucks all over the carpet and couches. The kids spill their drinks, the dog come in covered in mud. The list continues. So to be able to spot clean instead of dreading the scrubbing would be amazing!

  260. Louise Patterson Reply

    I love that it is easily movable and portable. I need a Rug Doctor because our two dogs, two kids, two guinea pigs and my husband are so grotty. Not to mention the boots that get walked through the house after being out in the chicken coop.

  261. I have two young children, a naughty cat and a giant puppy who slobbers like mad and loves to roll in any dirt she can find. Between the 4 of them, I struggle to keep our carpets and car clean. I love that the Rug Doctor spot cleaner looks easy to move around when needed, but powerful enough to get the job done well. I would love one of my own.

  262. With 5 kids aged 10, 8, 7, 5 1/2 and a 3 month old. 2 cats and 1 dog. this product would be a dream come true. With 3 doing footy and not always taking there footy boots off before coming inside and a daughter who is always dropping some sort of make up that she has snuck out of my room lol or the water she has spilt in her room and not told me about till I see the mark in the carpet lol. And also with my baby who is a very chucky baby who has got the carpet rug and couch this product would be fantastic to get all the nasty things out. Also with my car it would be great to get all the marks off the seats and roof from were my grubby children have been. Also would be great to not have to scrub the carpet from were a cat has been sick as well as getting rid off the doggie smell from the couch. Being in a rental property as well it would be great to keep the place looking great all year round. Kids can be messy and a product like this would definitely be one I would love in my life and would definitely make life so much easier and take away the cost of professional carpet cleaners all the time. I would love the chance to review this awesome product please.

    • Also being chemical free is an added bonus as with a son who has serve asthma
      A lot of chemicals flare it up so chemical free is definitely a win in this house hold.

  263. I live in a rental, I have 3 kids, 1 dog, 2 cats and I am also a foster carer for dogs and puppies. I couldn’t imagine how amazing it would be to have a carpet cleaner available for when ever I needed it (which is a lot LOL) I always say to myself I’ll pay someone to clean it or I’ll hire the machine and do it myself but I never get around to it. I could clean the messes as they happen, freshen the carpets for house inspections, the possibilities are endless!!

  264. single mum of a master 7 and miss furry meow 3 with personal issues and struggles the performance and versatility of this machine would be a blessing, to be honest it looks like this machine really sucks which is what my carpets need, although my couches even more lol

  265. My carpet used to be white a blue, now it looks yellow and green with hints of brown. I’ve wasted money on “professionals” but if i want it done right I’ll have to do it myself, that’s why I’d love to give this a go!

    My rug needs major doctor’ing! I have four kids (endless food stains), a 9week old puppy (accidents!!!), and a tradie partner walking all manner of work boot dirt! My rug has seen better days and the grimy stains from sticky fingers all over my couch, my once beautiful ‘BLACK’ couch.
    We also live in a rental so this could be the godsend we need to keep carpets looking clean and fresh.

  267. We have a young puppy without bladder control so it would be awesome to spot clean the carpet after each mishap with the Rug Doctor

With a grubby hubby who tracks mud though the house, a tradie brother that comes for dinner daily with he’s dirty work boots and dusty hands, 2 dogs, 2 cats, a two year old who loves mud and anything messy and a newborn on the way we always have new spots to clean. The fact that the cleaner is chemical free andcan also be used on mattresses, couches, car seats, prams the possibilities are endless with what I can give a good clean!

    Two dogs, a cat, a ten year old and a super-active toddler, Need one of these so bad. Love that retractable handle for hard-to-reach areas!

  292. I love that I could have a professional quality cleaner on hand so that small stains and mishaps can be dealt with straight away and with 2 times the suction power of other similar products it will be dry and ready to walk on again much sooner. With two kids – a footy playing boy (who forgets to take his boots off after a muddy game!) and a girl who lives to craft up a storm – plus a dog who still hasn’t learned to wipe her paws and free range chickens that love to leave land mines that sometimes get walked into the house – this would be very helpful indeed!!!

  295. Any carpet cleaner but in particular one small enough to move around the house and put away easily would be wonderful in my rental with light coloured carpeted bedrooms especially while toilet training my son and a young Border Collie puppy, along with all other messes from the two of them and keeping the car upholstery, rugs, light green lounge chairs etc clean.

    The Rug Doctor would be a convenient life saver in my home. I am currently house training a 13 week old puppy and the toilet training seems to be her peeing in the house and me cleaning it at the moment. The surprise puddles are just a small part of why I would love a Rug Doctor. I have 4 sons, 23,20,15 and our 7 year old has autism plus other issues. We have been his guardians since he was 9 mths old and we have multiple stains on carpets and rugs from bathroom accidents and even Euky Bear cream and Sudocream rubbed into the carpet. That stuff just doesn’t scrub out. It would be amazing if the Rug Doctor got the stains out. Thank you for the opportunity to test it.

  299. Between the dog, child and renovations the rugs, couches and car seats are all filthy!! In desperate need of a deep clean!

  300. Being a new mum I have made the rookie mistakes of not covering the couch pre baby. Now we have milk stains, food stains, cleaning stains etc everywhere. We’ve also had many a coffee spill in the bedrooms from late nights and early mornings. We also have some stains on the mattress from bub too.

  301. I need one because with bub on the way and two dogs at home running a muck my carpets are always getting stains! the cons of having cream coloured carpet and indoor/outdoor dogs!!!! with the frost coming they keep bringing dirt in, and it would be amazing to spot clean the nasty spots so when bugs starts crawling I will have no heart attacks!

  302. I love the idea of having a machine to do all the scrubbing for me. Being a household of 2 turdlers and 2 big energetic puppies (4 under 3.5 if you count the furbabies) you can only imagine the endless mess and stains I deal with on a day to day basis add that as well as living on a farm and my house may as well be a massive mud pie full of questionable flavours.

  303. Wow! I love that it’s chemical free AND looks so easy to use. Being able to clean my carpets regularly without all the expense would be great!
    With a dog, 2 cats and 3 kids, 10 year old carpet, rugs & 3 couches, our house would be completely renewed with this! And I’d be able to clean my dads rugs too! With Parkinson’s he tends to spill things a LOT.

    I’d be ver happy to test the rug doctor spot cleaner, we hire the rug doctor deep cleaner every few months and to be able to spot clean in between the deep cleans would be amazing. I love that it’s portable and it’s a solid reputable brand so you already know it’s going to be good. With 3 kids- one being a very messy toddler! Plus a dog and 2 birds our carpet gets quite disgusting. I did have a bissell spot cleaner but it broke hence the state my carpet is in now. I would love love love to try the rug doctor and let everyone know how great it is

  305. Would love to give it a go with 4 children full time (6 every 2nd weekend) and an inside cat the carpets and lounge get a little messy

  306. Definitely something that would be like a god sent in my home. With a very fluffy cat, a toddler who loves painting and playdoh and a mother who spills everything she eats and drinks. It would be put to good use.

  307. I would like to try this because with 3 children (5, 2, 9m) and 2 dogs, our couch could use a really good clean. We have had 2 children toilet train on it, 3 babys spew on it and the dogs get excited on it. Our main couch is covered in dog hair and has had a few little accidents as well. Not to mention the hall runner because that leads to the toilet. Lastly, inside anyway, our house is 21 years old and looks to have the origional carpet. No amount of hand scrubbing has gotten it clean, even having them steam cleaned didnt help with the ground in dirt. I would really like to try this in the car too! Our third row seats are dirty. We didnt know that till we got the car home (didnt notice it at the dealership). So many possibilities here!

  308. The double suction sounds fantastic as getting the carpets dry as quick as possible is really important with a puppy and 2 kids eager to get back to playing. This would be an amazing opportunity and it would get a real workout at our house!!

  309. Our carpets are so spotty. Carpet cleaners don’t seem to have any effect. We would love to have stain free carpet for once.

  310. With an 8 year old who still has regular accidents (carpet, couch, bed, wherever), a husband who thinks bikes should be stored in the house and that shoes aren’t necessary out the back in the mud and dirt as well as the family’s believing that they don’t need to wipe up their spill because someone else will do it our carpet is getting destroyed! We are renters ok, so I’m not looking forward to the day we move out. Anything to help get the marks out without regular professional cleaning will help so much! It will also help keep the place smelling more fresh and less like a urinal.

  311. With 3 kids there’s always cleaning to be done and I won’t even get started on my car! This will be a time saver and so easy to get rid of all those stains.

  312. Elizabeth Rigby Reply

    With 2 very messy boys and a big dog there are no shortage of stains that I need to clean. It’s hard to keep the carpet looking good and in a rental its important to look after carpets so you can get your bond back when you leave.
    I love that it is portable also as our car interior is always in need of a good clean, its amazing the mess that gets under a booster seat!
    I would also take it to me parents house to help clean their carpets as they look after my messy boys also!

  313. Becky Jackson Reply

    I love that its portable! My poor carpet has some awful looking stains on it as my miss 2.5 gets sick every change of the weather…which means projectile vomit being portable means my poor lounge can also get a good clean from vomit and dog smells gag!!

  314. As if having 3 kids and an inside/outside dog wasn’t enough, we also live in an area where the dirt is red. This leaves our cream coloured carpets so grubby! We’ve tried other carpet cleaners that were large, heavy and awkward to manoeuvre, and they haven’t been able to lift all the marks. I’d love to try the portable rug doctor and see how it compares to other machines we’ve used in the past. Hopefully it’s the answer to my carpet stain sorrows!

  315. Melissa Chapman Reply

    With a busy house 2 adults, 4 children 10 and under plus two inside cats and a brand new puppy my carpets are in bad shape, i was looking to hire a cleaner soon but having one here for when the mess gets crazy would be so much easier

  316. We have a young baby with reflux which is not a great combination in a rental property. I always have two cats who despite medication occasional vomits and wees on the carpet ( not a huge fan of the new human baby). My partner also Uber drives and it would be great to get his car sparkly clean!

  317. Rebecca1989 Reply

    I would love to try the rug doctor spot cleaner I’ve only ever used bissel. Thanks for the opportunity.

  318. We have 2 grown Huskies that love the wet grass and mud, as well as a toddler that loves banana and watermelon, but also loves to smish it into the carpet! Our only non carpet space in the house is the bathroom, Kitchen and Laundry! Sooo much smelly Banana and smelly wet dog!

  319. With 5 kids, a husband and a dalmatian dog who thinks she is people, keeping my rugs, carpet and furniture protected from spilled juice, muddy footy boots, and other unmentionables is like trying to wallpaper fog – impossible!

    Help me rug doctor! You’re my only hope!

  320. I have husband,3 kids one who is a newborn and no time to scrub the carpet. We live in a house with 30 year old carpet which was dirty and stained when we moved in and until we can afford to replace the carpet we have to live with the current carpet there are spots everywhere and will only get worse.

  321. I need something that sucks. Literally. Sucks and cleans manky carpet and furniture that once was shone bright and clean, but that’s no more thanks to my two kids.

  322. Amelia-Jayne Day Reply

    Would love to try this on my rugs, kids bedrooms and the car carpet

  323. 3 young sons and an 8month old baby with carpet and area rugs all round…. need I say more! I would love the opportunity to give our carpets, rugs and family lounge a new lease on life after years of love from four very small tenants. My soccer mum van could also do with a good spot clean. The portable rug doctor could be worth its weight in gold and just what the doctor ordered for a family such as ours.

  324. Alisha Bennett Reply

    With 3 kids and two dogs our upholstery is always filthy. Because we live in the Pilbara the dirt is bright red and stains everything, especially the car. As a family of scouts we end up dragging mud and dirt all through our house and car so would love to have the chance to give it a deep clean!! Also want to give it a go on our swags!!

  325. We regularly Hire the carpet cleaner from bunnings and feel it doesn’t really do a great job. It would be awesome to do a camparrison of the Two. We are a family of two adults, two young children, one inside dog and one inside cat.

  326. I’d love a rug doctor to clean my daughters wheelchair marks off of her carpet. There’s nothing grosser than wheelchair tyres on a rainy day and of course, there’s no choice but to bring it in the house.
    A rug doctor would help me stay on top of it!

  327. Sally Louise Reply

    Our rental have cream carpet in the lounge room and 1 of our bedrooms – dirt and grime is an everyday occurrence!

  328. 4 kids, 2 dogs, a fish, a snake, a full time job and a messy husband…. please save the tiny bit of sanity I have left ‍♀️

  329. Wiith 4 kids under 9 and a disabled wife, and working full time… this will help our quality of life in ensuring that the place is clean and looks and feels great with ease. Yippeeecayay!

  330. Between all of my kids, my foster kids, 2 big dogs plus their pups, there is always something that needs to be mopped up. I like the idea of this product being so portable and quick and easy to use. This would be a god sent to all of us with so much to do in our busy lives, and not enough hours in the day.

  331. From fresh strawberry stains, to milk stains to cordial to … well I don’t even know what that is. Two kids, 3 cats and a dog, you name it we’ve got it.

  332. As a mum to 5 kids I’m always cleaning stains and a portable carpet cleaner has been on my wish list for a long time. Today along I’ve cleaned milk out of the carpet and of the lounge

  333. With 2 kids, a dog & cat that malt, & a messy tradie husband, all my carpets, rugs, couches & car seats need a good old clean! I’d love to be able to do this myself & not have to arrange a carpet cleaner every other month!!!

  334. Sarah Blockley Reply

    I love that it’s small and lightweight unlike the big lumps you can hire from the supermarket. It’s an easy solution to clean carpets or furniture

  335. Sarah Blockley Reply

    Further to the above, I need one because I have kids that are very messy little creatures, as well as a husband who likes to wear his shoes inside. I have had many instances where someone has peed or gotten a blood nose or spilt something, this would be a much easier solution!

  336. I currently live in a rental with cream carpets. Coming into winter, the eed mud gets tracked onto by my older two who never remember to take their shoes off. Together with a 16mo who constantly throws her food and a long haired cat that sheds everywhere, a rug doctor is exactly what I need.

  337. Bianca Kaipara Reply

    Love that its lightweight, small and easy to use. We have Primary aged children and a toddler – so we’re always cleaning up spills and stains on the carpet and furniture.

    The Easter bunnies footprints (man-made with baby powder) are to this day still visible on our carpet and our chocolate stained furniture could do with some TLC too

  338. With being portable and so easy to use would make so much easier cleaning up after two kids and a cat with loves to make mess on the carpets. From juice stains to sticky finger marks would love to tackle the problem straight away.

  339. Susanna Martin Reply

    I have a very messy toddler who loves to wipe everything into the carpet from paint, textas, vegemite, spaghetti – you name it! I also have a little staffy who is lazy when it’s cold outside and she does her business inside! This would be amazing to help keep me and my landlord happy!

  340. Two pugs and two kids… you can just imagine the test we’ll give your machine!

  341. With 2 Grandchildren and a messy husband, I need a “carpet cleaning fairy” ! The Rug Doctor would definitely assist in this mission !!

  342. I would love to try the Rug as Larissa who is currently 1, has eczema. We have found that the carpet (most likely due to dust mites) irritates her skin and no matter how many times we vacuum, it does not eliminate dust mites. Larissa also refuses to sit on a high chair during meal times, so there are quite a few food stains due from that. I love how the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is able to reach hard to reach spots, allowing us to pick up every piece of crumb and dust and how it is chemical free, which is beneficial for the whole family.

  343. I need this in my life. Our carpet is terrible, if you even look at it the wrong way it stains.

  344. As a single mum of four sensory ASD kids and 4 cats, my carpets have been absolutely hammered! I would love to see what the rug doctor could do in my home, I am certainly in dire need it!

  345. I need the Rug Doctor in my life. I had no idea kids could make such a mess if carpet especially with cheese..

  346. As my daughter thinks that the lounge room rug would be the best place to do her arts & crafts my rug is crying out to be cleaned. Also the “no eating in the new car” thing you do didn’t last long before the seats were stained so it would be awesome to restore my 2 year old car seats to their original glory.

  347. 3 active girls who loves wearing makeup, full time working mum and rugs/carpets gets a good work out. Two still in nappies at night meaning more toilet training and constant flow of food in this household! This would be excellent for our double story apartment style living with lots of stairs and this size is perfect to carry around in the apartment!

  348. With 2 kids under 3 and one on the way, in the middle of toilet training the eldest and pets I would desperately love some help keeping the carpet clean.
    If anything is going to get a proper trial and review it’s going to be his full house!

  349. Jeanette Latter Reply

    Not sure who is worse my grandchildren, my adult children or my cat at making life such a happy stained mess, would love this as its portable.

  350. I don’t have a whole house of carpet, just mainly the bedrooms so I wouldn’t want to lug around something heavy and this seems more portable and easy to use. With pets and grandchildren it would be handy

  351. Steve Smyth Reply

    Our home has vinyl floors with plenty of rugs everywhere one of these would be ideal to clean these rugs instead of having to drag them out the back to hose them, Thank You

  352. Jacinta Jones Reply

    I can’t believe how amazing this product looks! It would be an absolute life saver for me as I have a 4 year old and a dog in a rental property. It looks so easy to use and would save me when inspection time comes around!

  353. Having 3 boys and having just moved to the country this would be great to review for the house and even the car after all the weekend sport. Would love to test one out for review.

  354. Jessica Ashbrooke Reply

    Looks like it works great I need one with my two Gerald who ate forever sneKing food and drinks in there room

  355. Kim McDonough Reply

    With 2 boys (3 including my husband!), new stains are always appearing on our carpet from goodness knows what! (I am trying to toilet train my toddler so that doesn’t help). I would love to try the Rug Doctor’s Portable Spot Cleaner to remove those really stubborn stains. Sounds like a lifesaver!

  356. Having a hubby in retail, 3 x 6year olds, a beagle and now chickens there is no end to what gets walked in on our carpets. Would also be amazing to be able to clean the car seats properly especially under the kids car seats (its scary to think what lurks under there lol) . The best thing is no chemicals are used and its portable thats a huge tick in my book

  357. Amy charallam Reply

    Love the fact that i could clean the kids bedroom carpets whenever i wanted to rather then waiting for a professional to come. To use on the car seats would be great also.

  358. Crystal Donald Reply

    With 3 kids and 2 dogs iam forever hiring varpet cleaners trying to get the floor clean which doesn’t always work.
    Having a portable one at home that works would just be heaven. And chemical free is a extra bonus

  359. With 2 school and kindy aged kids 2 cats and a puppy plus a baby who’s just started crawling you can imagine the mess they all create, having a mini rug Dr would be a godsend to clean up the little and no so little messes

  360. Michelle Astill Reply

    Would love to try this as I have four very messy kiddies in a rental house! Would get used soo much with us
    Thanks for the opportunity

  361. With three inside cats and a few granddaughters, a rug doctor would come in very handy especially for the nights when one of the cats decides to bring up a hair ball.

  362. My 4yo dropped a chicken egg in the car yesterday and today I had tuna salad leak onto the passengers seat…. now that’s only the car and the last 24hours…. Inside the house the lounge is a spilling favourite and the second hand sofa bed has some interesting stains too. So just like any other mum the rug doctor sounds like a heaven sent.

  363. I have 2 children, a dog and 2 cats. between the children dropping food and the dog digging in the garden then coming inside with muddy paws I am forever spot cleaning the new (only put in in November) carpet. The portable rug doctor would save me so much time and allow me to get my carpet much cleaner and I wouldn’t have to wait so long for it to dry which will help my carpet to survive longer.

  364. With a tradie husband and a nearly 2-yr old, our cream carpet (already in our house) has seen better days. I love you can take this anywhere in the house or car for unexpected accidents

  365. Between my husband, toddler and 2 cats, my once-pristine cream coloured couch, new rug and carpets are looking worse for wear. We just can’t afford to have them professionally cleaned, I would love to test out this bad boy!

  366. Where do i start…. as a mum of 4 kids, a dog, 2 cats and a Husband i am always spot cleaning the couch or the carpet haha. I have a big bulk machine that i have to drag out everytime i need to spot clean the carpet. I would love to try the rug doctor portable cleaner

  367. I have been looking at buying ome of these cleaners for a while now but couldn’t fathom paying the price if it was just another let down like my last one from another brand
    I have a husband 3 kids and 2 cats so you could imagine the stains i struggle to clean on a daily basis i would love to trial this product as it would be perfect for my household especially perfect for my lounge

  368. What don’t I love about this??? Cleaning spills/messes/accidents up without scrubbing on hands and knees…dogs cats and 2 kids my carpets are battered constantly!

  369. When our son was a baby, he had reflux. We were diligent in cleaning, but a few marks stayed. Now our daughter is determined to crawl around the place smooshing any item of food she can into the carpet. We tried to get it cleaned but they didnt do a great job. WE even had to throw out a rug as it was too hard to organise a professional cleaner with young kids around. Now we are planning to sell the property and our carpets desperately need a clean! And we would love a machine that we can pull out whenever any of the kids decide to share their food with the floor.

  370. With 4 kids, a dog, a husband who gets dirty at work and cream carpets, I need this!

  371. Sharon Turriff Reply

    This would save so much time and money paying for expensive cleaners to come out. I have 2 children who have white carpet in their room and the stains on the carpet just keep growing each day. Between grubby hands, textas and much more my carpets are filthy.

  372. Kathleen Usher Reply

    I love the oscillating brush, will make easy work of the stains, no so much elbow grease! I definitely need this to help clean my rugs: a messy dog, tradie husband, toilet training toddler and an infant who is too wiggly to use his change table mean that unfortunate stains and smells have become a permanent problem in ny house!

  373. With a cat, dog, husband and toddler on CREAM carpets, this would make life so much easier, also living in a rental will give me peace of mind knowing I can keep on top of the carpets myself without having to spend hundreds on professional cleaners!

  374. Tashana purkis Reply

    With a cat 2 teens a 8 year old and a very VERY messy toddler my carpets get very grubby over time and the rug doctor looks AMAZING and perfect too help keep them clean and honestly looks like wicked fun too use

  375. 4 kids and 2 dogs!! Omg I need to try this! My carpets are horrid! Brand new rug ruined due to kid spills and dog mishaps! Would absolutely love to try out the RugDoctor!

  376. I have a messy, energetic 18 month old who manages to get mud, blood, food, in fact every stain imaginable on not only our carpets, but any soft furnishings in our house and car! Throw into the mix a husband (really a grown up kid) who likes painting miniatures and woodworking over our carpeted areas. I don’t love the mess that these habits create! My husband also is a very hot sleeper and I have NEVER found a way to remove the sweat stains from our mattresses. We also have a long haired cat who can’t seem to clean himself well, and drags in goodness knows what into our house. This means there is never ending scrubbing that never quite removes the offending stain. Using the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner would be a game changer in the way I tackle stains in my house! I especially love that it has a retractable handle which would make cleaning tricky places like the car seat SO much easier!

  377. VANESSA Bradshaw Reply

    I love that it actually cleans!!! And I need it to clean my parents’ carpet cause my little ones have made quite a mess on it

  378. I love the powerful handheld oscillating motorised brush that will remove those stubborn stains from our carpets to make them smell fresh and look like new again. In our house with a dog, cat and two children unplanned mess and stains to the carpets are a problem in our house!

  379. Forget the kids, forget the dog, for the cat. It’s my husband who will have this wonderful portable machine, if it’s safe, I’ll strap it to him. He’s the big man with little spills, all the time. Would save us a fortune in cleaning one spot or 20, compared to cleaning the entire rug.

  380. FINALLY!! A portable spot cleaner that is powerful, compact and easy to manoeuvre. With 2 children, a Labrador, a tradie husband, a backyard that is being landscaped and a constant flow of friends and family who visit, I’m always cleaning marks, stains and spills off the carpet rugs and sofa. A RugDoctor Portable Spot Cleaner would be a welcome addition to our home….and car!

  381. Don’t cry over spilt milk… well i did cause there was milk in my rug… oh the smell. If only I had the rug doctor there would be a lot less stress and mess.

  382. I’m the grandmother of eight beautiful kids ranging from 9 months to 18 yrs. We uusually have at least 2 of them sleeping over Nanny’s & Poppy’s house most weekends and school holidays we can have 4 or 5 staying with us.I love them to death but they sure can make a mess especially when they bring my Labrador into the mix.This would be a godsend I’ve tried those cleaners you hire from the supermarket it did an ok job but it was soo big and bulky and awkward to use..

  383. Sabrina Kelly Reply

    I am a pregnant mama with an almost 2 year old, a furry cat, and a lazy partner who treat our carpet like a football field! It’s endlessly taking in food stains, dirt, and all that other wonderful debris that comes with an active family. The rug doctor is such a versatile asset every family needs!
    I love how the motorised brushes will agitate all the dirt I both can and can’t see which is essential to keep a home truely clean! I’d love the chance to review and try the machine to keep my home and car fresh!

  384. I love that it might be smaller and portable but it works as good as or if not better than big chunky cleaners, perfect for my home full of children and toddler spills

  385. Angela Lambie Reply

    Im hoping the rug doctor can get my mat clean. After sitting under the dining table with a baby learning to self feed & a dog running all over & my husband walking over it in his work boots it’s definitely seen better days… then if we get the rug clean, I can work on my (light) grey couch cushions (what was I even thinking?!), bubs car seat that has food smooshed into it, the actual car seats… and floor… and the pram.

  386. Kate Cotton Reply

    With 2 messy, mud playing, glitter sprinkling, playdoh creating kids, 2 dogs, and a truckie/mechanic/mud loving 4wding husband, our house and vehicles are never clean for very long. I would love to trial and review the rug doctor, the safe chemical free clean, combined with the oscillating brush and retractable handle will ensure that carpets are thoroughly cleaned on top and within the fibres and in all the hard to reach places The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner would be an absolute life changer!

  387. Kelly Waldron Reply

    I have 4 kids, 1 dog and a cat.
    My carpets, car and sofa are looking pretty flat.
    A carpet cleaner is required,
    To clean the carpet that’s looking pretty tired.

  388. I bought an expensive vacuum cleaner but it still doesn’t do a great job on the rug, this would be awesome! With 2 kids playing on the rug every day, I’d love to keep it clean and healthy.

  389. Mumsgottatravel Reply

    Omg. I love this idea..
    we have just got new carpet, to right now we have no stains, but we are just about to start toilet training my 2 yo, which scares me slightly on the new carpet! This would be amazing to get on top of any accidents that leave marks..

    I also have a few water marks in my car seats, would love to see if this would help remove them

  390. Shine Chigwidden Reply

    I have 2 kids who are laying down on the carpet to play all the time. Kids spills their juice or snacks in the car seat easily. This will be a great for our family’s hygiene to try out. The wheels will be useful to move around in the carpet. The rectangle handle sounds it’s will be easy for my fingers to hold on.
    I would love to try out!!

  391. Paul Harvey Reply

    The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner would be a perfect addition to our household.
    I love that we would be able to clean up any messes properly and thoroughly.
    Having two kids that love to eat and drop crumbs throughout the house, play outside barefoot then run through the house with dirty feet means it’s a battle keeping the house clean and sanitary. Never mind the sand that gets brought home from childcare to fall off them on the carpets.
    Can we swap one of the children for it?

  392. It just looks so easy to use, and like most mothers, I know my children are messy, grotty and dirty…
    The truth is I hate mess, grottiness and dirt, but my children are children and it is all apart of it. But, to be able to clean spills and spots and grot this easy would be amazing!!!

  393. With kids and pets in and out of the house constantly our rugs are looking sad in need of some help. I was just saying to my husband we need to hire a carpet cleaner to sort them out so being able to try one and keep it would be amazing! I always knew light coloured rugs would be an issue……

  394. My hubby works in the dirt and mud so my car, couches, dining chairs and mattress are filthy. My son loves sneaking food into his room and toy room so my carpets are covered in stains, yogurt is his favourite. Oh and how good it would be to properly clean my pram. My family are constantly making a mess. I need one of these so I can show off to my kinder and school mum friends and FB groups!

  395. 3 year old + 7 month old + Labrador + coal miner husband = very dirty carpets and couches. I have some excellent finger paint stains (blue) that I would LOVE to test these out on!

  396. What is not to like about the rug Doctor? It’s portable, easy to use and by the look of it easy to store . I would use it in my car the most as we are constantly in it and with kids the seat end up so discusting and this looks like an easy and cheap way to clean it . Omg also the kids rooms marks on their carpet is the worst !

  397. Sonia Chang Reply

    Nothing better than enjoying clean and fresh rug everyday . But food stains, pet’s dirty paw marks and unknown marks are made my expensive rug very ugly and unhygienic.

    I would love this I have 3 girls that always makes a mess on my cream colour carpet and it takes alot for me to clean a spill by hand days to get rid of the stain

  399. 3 boys under 7, 2 dogs a cat and a husband. The key word for me is portable! As a Mum I need to be able to get to things in a jiffy and the amount of mess we have whether it be a dirty footy boot ran along the carpet or a defiant toilet trainer. The Rug Doctor would cure all mummy’s headaches!

    I have a 5 year old and a 10 month old. Got to love banana being squished into the carpet, dirt and mud from outside being walked inside and all of dirty memories that dont want to come out!

    I love that this is portable and looks easy to use. My carpet really needs some TLC and as a father on 2 i need something that is effective. Rug doctor is a well know brand and has a reputation and I would love to personally see the results and share them. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Having a house decked out completely in (white ☹) tiles with floorboards in the bedrooms, I was keen to lay down some fun, statement rugs but when you’ve got a three-year-old still on her potty-training P-plates and trailing crumbs like she’s in a German story book, sometimes the only statement those rugs are making is: ‘help’. I’ve since given up on recreating my cosy carpeted pre-parenthood and how nice it is to flop on a couch or squish your toes into clean, soft rugs and not sticky juice, foody bits or unidentified ooze. And being the first parents of our friends, the state of the back of our car is somewhat of a running joke (until one of them needs sauces for their nuggets, stationery, a tissue box or a hankering for tiny teddies – then they love the lucky dip backseat). Even after clearing everything out, setting up the extension cord and big vacuum with the difficulty of a NASA launch with zero moveability, it still looks like a seagull’s paradise (a pet seagull was a fleeting thought but the rug doctor would most likely be the more convenient of the options). Between a clumsy nursing and criminology student (a lot of fluids not belonging to myself on my clothes when I get home) who has zero waitressing prowess but still overfills her coffee mug for her lounge room voyage, a blacksmith who is a jack of all trades but still hasn’t worked out the function of the doormat or the strategically placed far-too-clean hand towel hanging by the front door and a toddler who defies the laws of input and output when it comes to mess, we’d love to give the rug doctor a try and revisit our earlier, grandeur, possibly naïve ideas of occasional pretty rugs, cleanish cars and sticky-free couches.

    Love how easy it will be to keep my carpets clean. That its chemical free and safe dor my family. It will save us a fortune as we will be able to clean our own carpets. With two children and two animals plus (the man child/animal) a lot if mess happens around our home.

  403. I have 2 children. We had a cat until a few months ago when sadly after 16 1/2 years she was put to sleep. At 17 years of age she became very sick and vomited all over the carpets. I haven’t been able to afford to clean them as I’m paying off expensive vet bills. We rent this house and I’d like to be able to clean the carpets before next inspection.

    I would love to try and own a rug doctor to rid the carpets of this dirt and restore them to the way they should be.

    Cleaning my car seats would be awesome too as the covers are due to come as they are old.

    Finally, cleaning the lounge would be great. It needs a good clean.

  404. I love that its portable enough to use easily mourned the whole house

  405. I love that it can be used everywhere, which is where my kids (2 under two) tend to make a mess! Plus the fact it’s ortable is ideal for quick cleanups throuout the house.

  406. I have one child with Autism and one child with limited tracking abilities. My life is full of spills and mess on the couch on the carseats etc and there is nothing worse than the milk smell baking in the sun so you get a horrible odour when you open the car. I love that The Rug Doctor is portable so it can literally go everywhere. Id love to trial the machine as there would be less stress in my life with worrying how Im going to clean the messes up the kids make. Thank you for considering me.

  407. Emily Metelmann Reply

    Doctor this couch needs some attention stat! I’m not sure how much longer it can last. It’s been wee’d on, had all kinds of drinks spilled on it, muddy shoes, the cat lazing around on it … some treatment by the Rug Doctor could bring it back to life.

    While I’ve got you doc, perhaps you could also take a look at the car and carpets. Just to be on the safe side.

    With a toddler who loves snacks which equals little bits of food everywhere and a cat that sheds enough to make a fur coat I really need a deep cleaning product to make my carpets and rugs new again plus safe for the whole family

    This is so needed in our household. We hire the standard rug doctor from Bunnings once a month to do our carpets and couches due to two very messy but Lovely children.

  410. 3 kids, a dog and a cat was already tough on our carpets (and couches…beds…car seats…) but we recently took pity on a dumped stray pup as well. We’ve reached critical mass! We now have a ‘painting the Harbour Bridge’ cleaning situation – as soon as you think you’ve finished, you need to go right back and start over again!

    Having two kids a cat and a dog oh my i need this, from those milk stains from baby spit up to the dog trampling mus inside i love that its versatile and portable i can even get rid of those stains in my car from the kids. What an amazing machine to try.

  412. Jessica De Avlis Reply

    I love the portability of the rug doctor. The fact that I can use it on my car and mattresses (really needed for those toilet training kids) as well as on the carpet is brilliant. I need this machine as I have moved in to a house with carpets for the first time. They are twenty years old and in need of love. Especially now that they are being loved by two kids and a beagle with a peeing problem. Then there is me the coffee addict, who shares her coffee with the carpet, mattress, car seats and car floor. Being portable I could also take it to my mum’s and clean the carpet that my son peed on and I spilled coffee.

    Our family is not a “cream coloured carpet” family! With a 5 year old and 2 three year olds, plus a partner whose work has him outside all day, our cream carpets are suffering. Plus having a child with sensitive skin, I’m always keeping an eye out for ways to keep chemicals out of the home. I’m constantly looking at the floor and trying to work out the best way to get it clean. The Rug Doctor portable spot cleaner would save time, money and my arm from repetitive strain since I often sit on the floor and just scrub stains with a cloth.

  414. This would help immensely in our rented home. We are supposed to have the carpets professionally shampooed yearly. I have a 2 year old and 5 year old. Both boys and the youngest needs toilet training. Will be sure to have a few nasty accidents. We eat in the lounge room (over a rug that I’ve never cleaned only left out in the sun a few times ) as the kitchen is too small and dangerous with the hot stove. I’d love to review this product to freshen up the house and remove some stubborn stains.

    With two young children and a dog, our carpet is definitely worse for wear. We’ve been holding off replacing it until the kids get older. It would be amazing to be able to use this Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner to refresh our carpet and tackle the many stains we have. We have a particularly bad sunscreen spill that I have never been able to remove. I have tried all the supermarket brand carpet cleaners. You’d have my complete loyalty if this machine was able to remove that stain!!

  416. Never lived in a house with carpets till 2 years ago and I’m constantly trying to look for ways to keep the carpet clean. Especially now when the youngest is starting solids! I’ve had marker, glue, blood, play-doh and not to mention LOtS of food. How do I get them off the carpets!? Was considering a steam mop but was told it won’t be much help. Definitely desperate for a rug doctor to save me! I especially liked how it looks like it’s washing the carpet cause with a baby crawling on the floor so often, it’ll put my mind at ease at least. Without finding ninja hair in his fingers whenever I pick him off the floor! and I thought I’ve cleaned the carpet! 🙁

  417. I love that is is small and portable. I would love to clean my carpets, lounge and car seat

  418. I (stupidly) have a white rug and a constantly muddy dog. My life is an endless cycle of trying to keep the rug clean.
    I love that is a chemical free way to clean my rugs and couches!

  419. Wow this looks amazing and would come in handy with my 4 year old twins who seem to drop food/drinks/anything sticky all over the floor and not tell me about leaving my carpet looking like a cheetah with dirty spots everywhere. My 10month old thinks the stains are food so tries to pick at them. I’ve been wanting to get my carpet steam cleaned for years but when I mention it to hubby he says just get new carpet.. This would be quick and easy to use and I’m sure will get great results.

  420. I have a 16 month old daughter who gets into everything. Last week she decided to drink mummies cold coffee and in such got it all over our carpet.

    She is a messy eater and usually likes to try and share her meals with the cat. We have plenty of spot stains small and big, they drive me up the wall. Every month I try to take a day to scrub the carpet but it never looks the same again

    I would love this Rug Doctor because it’s portable, chemical free and easy to use carpet cleaner. Having 2 little boys, a dog and a husband . My place can get a little filthy especially the carpet. It would be great to test this out as my carpet does need a little refreshing but want to ensure it is safe for the whole family.

  422. With the grandchildren, an old cat who often regurgitates her food and people bringing in geese poo on their shoes, I would LOVE to try the Rug Doctor to remove the stains already accumulated on our 12 month old carpet.

  423. It breaks my husbands heart to see stains on the carpets and rugs, but with a toddler and baby – it is inevitable! The Rug doctor is portable and made to beat carpet stains other cleaners struggle with

  424. Massouna Najjarine Reply

    Im a 46yr old grandma of 5 grandkids and 3 I take care of full time so I need The Rug Doctor 24/7 ! ! And that’s no exaggeration as my 3 bedroom townhouse becomes a zoo most days. . I could test it out in all sorts of situations on all sorts of disasters .. What a fantastic opportunity to trial it out then keep it

  425. Mel Donnison Reply

    With beige carpet, a dog, 2 kids and a husband stains and spills are a part of life. If fhe stains dont come out first time they stay there, like a shining beacon until its time to get the carpets steam cleaned again. With the rug doctor I can treat and clean these as they occur ensuring my house and carpet are always in top condition!

  426. Am so fed up with cleaning carpets & floors after sick kids, various thrown up cat “surprises” left where you walk around (really is “fun” at night time!!) Not to mention the two dogs helping to NOT keep the floors clean every day. Rug Doctor would make such a difference being able to deal with all the disasters quickly & easily, my floors would soon look like a showroom instead of a shack. My nightmares would be gone with the magic Rug Doctor to come to my rescue, I dream of this becoming reality for real.

  427. I love about the Rug Doctor that it’s promising to be very effective with all possible stains, that it’s portable and chemical free, which is important for me especially with kids in the house. Hope to get this trial and put it to test with our carpets!

  428. We on acerage, their mud and god knows what else, we have a cat, dog, who bigger than me, rabbit, birds
    Miss 8 is the queen of dirt and crumbs
    Im accident prone and spill everything
    Save our rental carpet

  429. I love that its chemical free so completely safe and worry free to use around my family and pets. I need a Rug Doctor to keep up with my family and all their marks and stains on my floors and upholstery.

  430. I’d absolutely love to win a rug doctor as we are building our first home and this would be PERFECT for when we have to clean our rental!

  431. It would be a life saver, I have a 9 year old boy, 2 dogs and puppies on the way, my carpets are trashed and I feel if I had this I wouldn’t have to replace them, I’m renting as well.

  432. Between rugs that are used by three kids a dog some chicken sometimes and a duck and a lounge that is installed and can’t be removed that has been here since the 70s and a husband who is a tradie in his car I believe the rug doctor would be perfect for me and my family to tackle some really tough stains that I know it would handle with ease.

    You can clean your carpet yourself without the need to hire a cleaner!!! If you’ve seen our carpets this is definitely something my family needs to try. Our carpets are disgusting and has been like that ever since we moved in here 10 years ago. I have to put a blanket on the floor so baby and children can lie down or play without seeing the mess and now have a rug on the floor to cover the stains I don’t want people to see.

  434. amie m grech Reply

    with 3 kids this amazing carpet cleaner would be the best thing since sliced bread for me, easy convenient and chemical free its perfect

  435. with 3 kids and 2 dogs my carpets take a beating a Rug Doctor would be perfect to deal with stains as they happen before they set in

  436. Chloe Taylor Reply

    With 5 kids and 3 dogs, its a real struggle to keep my carpets looking new. Kids are continuously spilling drinks, dropping food on the carpets and car seats! A Rug Doctor would help soooo much!

  437. I love how portable it is and looks so easy and quick to use, would be awesome to clean up the lovely mess the toddler and baby makes.

  438. We have a car that we want to sell but the seats are really grotty. It would be great to be able to give the Rug Doctor a go and maybe get us some extra money when we sell the car as well.

  439. I love it because it is portable. I can use it on my carpets, furniture rugs my rug has lots of stains from my kids and the carpet has stains from spilling coffee walking through the lounage room. my carpets are always dirty with 2 young kids walking dirty in as there is no grass just sand in my yard.Would be good to use rug doctor to clean up stains from the kids

    I love that it is easily portable so I can get the cars, the house and the caravan all done easily and more importantly, cheaper than hiring someone!

    I love the way it looks. Really need one being in a rental with 2 young kids!!

  442. Anne Johnson Reply

    We would absolutely love to trial this product!! I hate looking at those stains that don’t come out and just wanting to replace the rug! Also the stress whenever anyone walks around with food!! Stop it now!! We would just love to try this cleaner and save $$ on having to replace the rug all the time!!

  443. The rug doctor would save me heaps of time trying to clean all the stains on the carpet in 5 rooms.

  444. Brooke Croton Reply

    With 5 kids and a rabbit, I’m always cleaning up messes up off the carpet. The portable rug doctor would be amazing to have on hand as I would be able to clean up the mess quickly and effortlessly and be stress free trying to keep the floor perfect all the time.

  445. Madeleine Driver Reply

    Kids + rental house + cream carpets = a lot of money spent on carpet cleaners!! Inspections are already stressful and to make sure the carpets are always kept clean is hard and expensive!!

  446. With 4 kids 7 and under and a new little puppy running around I am constantly cleaning mess from those little miss happs. I’m sure the rug doctor would make my job that much easier.

  447. With two kids and a dog this would be a godsend! Love that it is a chemical free way to clean up after them.

  448. Jessica Giles Reply

    I’ve only had my carpets cleaned once and within a week they were filthy again from a toilet training toddler. There’s food stains everywhere and I’m about to have 3 kids under 4 plus 2 dogs who come inside. The rug doctor would be my saviour.

  449. Ayla-Jade Wheeler Reply

    I have a three year old son and twin 8 month old daughters. needless to say my carpet and couch are always covered with dirt, food and spit-up. Plus we live in remote WA and anyone out here knows that the red dirt is IMPOSSIBLE to clean with a normal cleaner, the stuff gets everywhere! paired with my cat and two wolfhounds as well as the dirt we track in from our vege garden and chook pens my floor could realy use with some TLC

  450. I can’t stand to look at my carpet anymore, I’ve been trying to save for a carpet cleaner but it’s just not happening. My carpet needs the rug doctors help!

  451. This is exactly what I need for my car! Like most families my kids eat, play, sleep and make all kinds of mess in my car! This is what my upholstery needs to get the new car feeling back… and once that is done I will start on the mystery spot in my daughter’s room followed by the lounge room rug!

  452. Stacey Turner Reply

    A busy messy 1 year old and off white carpets are an awful mix! Babyled weaning sounded like a great idea until I saw my floors! We are desperate to clean these carpets! It’s embarassing! White carpets…who would ever think that’s a smart idea

  453. Convenience. We hire the carpet cleaner from the suoermarket, but its such a hassle. This would mean ckean carpets all the time!

  454. Would love to trial this, with 3 kids and as inside dog its a constant battle cleaning up spills or accidents on the carpet

  455. My old vacuum cleaner is on it’s last legs, so I would LOVE a new Vac, especially one that can deal with life living with 2 kids, 3 cats, 1 dog and 2 adults living on a farm made of red dirt, plus possum, pademelon and chook poo. It all ends up in the house eventually, no matter how hard I try.

  456. Like everyone else, we have 3 kids with a young bub and 2 school aged children. With little disposable cash to replace couches and carpet, being able to clean up spills and accidents with thos little gem would be fab. Would lobe to trial and review.

  457. Would love to be able to clean my couches floors even our cars with 3 kids oldest almost 5 everything get gross from yucky hands or food spills so i would love to trial and review

    • Husband allows the youngest (16 months) to walk around with food and its forever getting squished into the couch and rugs. Eldest has had something spill in the backseat of the car about 3 years ago (dont know what it is) and havent been able to clean it properly. I need to clean the couch so bad it’s driving me insane and the rugs are just getting worse. Add to all of it we will be toilet training soon and i expect a few messes. Would be handy to clean everything up as soon as it happens and get this place fresh without lugging a big cleaner and a 16 month old around!

  458. Gemma McLaughlin Reply

    I would love to give this a try. Our carpet has yet to be professionally cleaned (vacuumed reguarly just not washed)and weve had it for about 5-8 years. We have an inside cat. And 2 kids a nearly miss 4 and a mr 1. No time to get professionals in. And weve been intending hiring one but time restraints make it hard. Having one at hand would make a huge improvement. I love the fact that its a home model and not a huge chunky hire one.

  459. The Rug Doctor is exactly what we need in our rental where we have horrible light cream carpet that we can only afford to clean properly once a year. Being able to regularly clean the carpets would be a god send . We also have a couch that I’m scrubbing weekly because of the kids and a 4×4 and family car that need some tlc on the carpets after muddy shoes from the husband’s work boots and kids shoes. It’s a endless problem in our house of needing a good carpet cleaner that can tackle all the tough stains and grime of a family of 5.

  460. With two young boys, one currently toilet training and the other having nappy free time… To say we have spot stains is a understatement!! Being in a rental with cream coloured carpet we try our best to keep it clean but accidents happen and we have spent a arm and a leg on professional carpet cleaners to make sure we are looking after the owners house. Having one of these would be a life changer for us!

  461. I NEED the Spot Cleaner!!!
    This would be absolutely perfect, So many stains on our carpet and of course when you ask – no one knows how they got there.
    They are in desperate need to be freshened up – I actually want to see if the SmartStrand forever clean carpet we had installed 5 years ago really lives up to it name. With miss 4 and miss 2 and our dog it really has been put to the test.
    I love the fact I would be able to grab the spot cleaner out at any time.

  462. With 3 kids, and a large dog, our carpets are always needing to be cleaned. We have a robot vacuum that has to run every day to pick things up, but it does not get stains out with spills. A portable carpet cleaner would be amazing, to do our carpets, couches and car. I can only imagine how clean my stuff would look after using one of these.

  463. My parents hired one brought there carpet up nice. I really need one with a child and dog living on a farm = mud and dirt

  464. I love the fact it is so portable. Being able to easily do my rugs, lounge chair and car seats is awesome and so convenient.

  465. The rug doctor will save me hours of scrubbing by hand when my kids spill something in the carpet

    WITH 4 BOYS AND 2 DOGS IN A RENTAL HOUSE THAT HAS CARPET THROUGH THE WHOLE HOUSE- I REALLY NEED THE RUG DOCTOR!!WITH TWO ASTHMATICS THIS WOULD BE AWESOME TO FOR DUST MITES. SO HANDY AND PORTABLE

  467. I would love the chance to review!
    Looks like such a great compact machine!

  468. Between my daughter learning how to use utensils and feeding the dog my carpet always has marks on it. This would be great to help clean them up

  469. With 2 young children and 1 grown child (husband…) this would be a lifesaver! Goodness knows what is smooshed into our rugs. Plus I would love to give our mattresses a thorough clean!

    Our carpets are horrible, you can spill water on them and they literally stain which is horrible when you have carpet throughout your whole house and a messy 3 years old – my baby is about to start solids as well and as our dining room only has carpet I’m scared of what’s going to happen once she starts throwing her food around too! It would be an absolute lifesaver for us!
