Get this: http://www.target.com/p/bissell-spo.../A-14341665#prodSlot=medium_1_24&term=Bissell

I use Chemical Guys Fabric Clean. Hasn't let me down yet. Dilutes 1:20 so very economical.

Trick is to use plain hot tap water in the Bissell. Dilute the FC in a spray bottle. For spot cleaning, wet the stain using the trigger on the Bissell cleaning head. One trigger of the FC on the spot. Scrub lightly with upholstery brush. Let sit 1 minute or so, then use the Bissell with hot water to extract the soap.

ahh not looking to spend $100 on a new machine haha. ive seen vids of a guy using a spray shampoo on the carpet then using a scrub to agitate it and then a towel to wipe it down.

should i use a shopvac and vacuum it after it is wiped down?

how is adams all purpose for this job? or should i look into another cleaner? maybe one of the ones you guys mentioned above.

You can use CG Fabric Clean in this way. That is how I use it in the tight areas where the extraction nozzle won't fit. You don't need to vacuum after you clean with the spray, scrub, and towel method. When you do the towel part, it is better to blot at the stain to transfer the stain from the carpet to the towel. If you "wipe" at it, you will just spread the stain around.

i used to be a detailer when younger, and the #1 tip i can give is when your all done cleaning, and the carpet is dry take your now dry also brush, and give the carpet a good scrubbing again. no matter how much vacuuming you do the carpet seems to still have cleaner in it. hence the stuff carpet pile. giving it a good dry scrubbing then vacuum makes the carpet nice and soft instead of stiff.
