Bissel Stomp ‘N Go Review

If you have kids, pets and carpet in your home, then you are bound to be cleaning up some sort of stain or spill from it.  I have had our carpets professionally cleaned numerous times, and it looks great for a few weeks then slowly, stains begin to reappear.  Often times they are just stains that seem to resurface.

Recently, I was given the chance to review a new product by Bissel, called Stomp ‘N Go.  Naturally, this peaked my interest for two reasons.   Firstly, it sounded way too easy and simple of a product, and two I am constantly looking for “at the ready” carpet stain removal products, that I can use to get a stain that is fresh or one that I have come across.  In our home there are our most common stains, like dirt, spilled juice, always the blue candy or popsicle, and usually the cat that inevitably throws up.

About Bissel Stomp ‘N Go

BISSELL® Stomp ‘N Go®

Innovative one-of-a-kind pad cleans carpet messes with just one STOMP

Forget about scrubbing out spots and stains on carpet, stomp them out! BISSELL’s new Stomp ‘N Go® stain lifting pad is unlike any cleaning product available. Using a powerful oxy-based formula, the pre-moistened pads make cleaning easy and fun. Simply place the pad on a spot or stain and stomp on it.  Upon stomp, the pad begins working, lifting and removing the mess. You can actually see the stain being absorbed into the pad. There is no need for scrubbing or using other cleaning tools – the pad does all the work.

 

Stomp ‘N Go® pads are great for permanently cleaning tough set in stains like red wine, food, fruit juice, coffee/tea, pet messes, blood, mud/dirt and more. The pads leave carpet smelling fresh and come in convenient, individually wrapped packages.

 

The stain lifting pads can also be used on rugs. Additional features and benefits include:

 

  • Pads are portable and safe for use on all carpets including nylon, wool and stain resistant carpet
  • Spots and stains are gone in about 30-minutes; tough stains may take up to 24 hours
  • No scrubbing or manual work required

 

BISSELL Stomp ‘N Go® pads are currently available at Kmart, grocery stores and select Wal-Mart stores for $4.99. Each package contains five individually wrapped pads.

 

I was  particularly interested in trying Bissel Stomp ‘N Go on this one stain that I have been wandering by in the main traffic area of our living room.  It was driving me crazy, and I had not yet had the time to get out my little handheld spot removing machine, because I didn’t think anything else would get it out.

The not so lovely stain

The product is incredibly easy to use. I opened up one sheet of the Bissel Stomp ‘N Go, placed it over the stain wet side down, and stepped on it, and left it there for about thirty five minutes.  My initial thought was, “how the heck is that going to take anything out of the carpet, without scrubbing or using a machine to extract it?”   After about fifteen minutes, I walked by and could actually see some of the stain being picked up by the sheet on the opposite side.  When I removed it, the stain was literally gone.  Not only was I thrilled, but I was happy I didn’t have to walk by that stupid stain anymore and better yet, there was no scrubbing at it with an arsenal of products I had on hand.  I love it!  I even reused the sheet (*note: It says to not reuse, to throw away after use) but  I tried it on a smaller nearby stain and it got that one as well.  It made me want to search my house for other stains just so I could use it.

Wahlah!   No more stain!

As with any carpet care product, the manufacturer states that you should always test for color fastness before using Bissel Stomp ‘N Go on your carpet.  But, what I can say, is that you will want to have a few of these handy  sheets in your home!  They come in packs of five for about $5, and take up a whole lot less space than all the carpet cleaning product in your arsenal.

Carpet Cleaning Sunday

Filed under General, Just for fun!

Whatever happened to Sunday being a day of rest?  I decided early this morning that I was going to clean the carpets so , I headed up to Lowes to rent a Rug Doctor.  I had so much laundry that I could have been doing but I couldn’t bare to look at my carpets any longer.

It was my intention to have a carpet cleaning service come out, but the reality is that it costs a lot more money than doing it ourselves.  To my surprise the blue crayon came out of our area rugs, so I am very happy about that.

One little beef I have about Rug Doctors is that the cleaning solution they sell to you is horribly expensive for a half gallon of cleaner it cost you just as much at the rental!  I’m like are they for real?  Not only that you have to supposedly by this anti-foam stuff to put in the water recovery tank which cost more money.  It is a total gouging, so I wised up.  I went into Lowes, and rented the rug doctor, but I visited the cleaning aisle and found industrial strength/commercial carpet shampoo with a deodorizer for $9.00!  Normally I will get two bottles of Rug Doctor stuff and be out the money, but I wont fall for that anymore.  Not only that, the anti foam stuff is a crock if you buy low foam carpet shampoo you have no foam at all to speak of.

Seriously, what a way to rip people off!  No bottle of soap or shampoo/cleaner for your carpet should cost $20! The unit cost $26 to rent….what a rip!
