A user’s Bissell 1200B SpotBot compact deep carpet cleaner review says: “The Bissell 1200B SpotBot compact deep carpet cleaner does a good job at cleaning your carpets, however it’s quite labor intensive. I know the company advertises the machine as being super simple to use, but just beware that you’ll get a workout if you’re cleaning up a big mess. That being said, it does do a good job and get most tough spots out.
The Bissell cleaner liquid is very expensive. You can easily concoct your own if you know how. Also, I wish the thing had a dryer. It would be very useful if you could dry the spot after washing it clean. I’m sure a lot of carpet cleaners don’t have one, but it’s sure handy. So, overall the Bissell 1200B SpotBot compact deep carpet cleaner is a good buy. I wish they would fix those few things, but still it is worth the money.”
