    Review for BISSELL Little Green Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner, Green, 1400B

    I recently purchased the BISSELL Little Green Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner, and I am impressed with its performance. It definitely lives up to its claims.

    The machine is lightweight and portable, making it easy to clean various surfaces throughout my home. I was particularly impressed with its ability to remove tough pet spots and stains from carpets, upholstery, and even car interiors. It effectively tackled coffee stains, grease, and more.

    The large tank capacity of 48 oz is convenient, as it allows me to clean more without constantly refilling. And with the included Spot & Stain formula with Febreze Freshness, it not only removes stains but also eliminates odors.

    One of the standout features is the exclusive specialty tools, such as the HydroRinse Self-Cleaning Hose Tool and Spraying Crevice Tool. These tools were a game-changer in reaching and deep cleaning hard-to-reach areas. They are definitely worth it.

    Now let’s talk about user feedback:

    1. I can relate to the experience shared by a user who purchased a dirty chair. This machine proved to be a savior in cleaning upholstery and removing spots.
    2. Another user had an older model from BISSELL that lasted for 23 years. Although disappointed in the lifespan of their previous model, they appreciated that BISSELL continues to produce quality products.
    3. There are a couple of reviews in Spanish expressing satisfaction with the machine’s performance and ease of use.


    • Powerful suction for removing tough stains
    • Exclusive specialty tools for thorough cleaning
    • Portable and versatile design for cleaning various surfaces
    • Large tank capacity for continuous cleaning
    • Effectively removes stains and odors


    • Some users experienced issues with media loading, which could be an inconvenience for accessing additional resources or tutorials.
    • One user expected a longer lifespan for their previous BISSELL model.

    In conclusion, I highly recommend the BISSELL Little Green Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner. It is a reliable and efficient cleaning tool that delivers impressive results.

       Creo que cumple con lo que promete. Esperaré a que se seque y sea dar mi veredicto final.

    2. So ordered this and was prepared to be happy with a not to bad product. Lemme explain, I have a Little Green model 1720-1 built back in the year 2000, made by these folks its now going on 23 plus years old. From now on referred to as Old Little Green. I got it out the other day and the pump no longer pumps water. What a piece of junk right??? 23 years old and the pump just stops pumping. The water line is not plugged so it just wore out!!!!
      So it being the era of everything being built cheaper with cheaper and tossed together to get them out the door cheap and fast, well that’s been my experience on everything I have had to replace after years of service anyway.. So I would have been happy with “its not bad”. Of course I would not have reviewed it either. I try not to give kudos to companies who barely do what you would expect them to do any more than I give kudos to my kids or grandkids for accomplishing the bare minimum.
      That said, I appreciate that there is a company who seems to care enough about what they manufacture that they actually put out a good or better quality product. This one has better suction, better spray and better design than Old Little Green did, its easier to fill and empty and clean up than Old Little Green was.
      Only thing that I feel they missed out on, the clear part of the nozzle on Old Little Green separated from the rest of the nozzle, making it easier to clean right there where the hair and dirt and little tiny stones tend to gather and then set down roots. This model seems to be permanently put together or at minimum will require a chisel and glue to remove and reassemble.
      On the plus side, the hose self cleaning attachment was a nice add and the fact it has a clip that keeps it attached to the hose while storing is a very nice touch for sure. It also had an added crevice tool, which was nice but unlike the self cleaning attachment it doesn’t seem to have a way to permanently attach to the unit during storing… and well I am unable to find it even as I write this, sure when I do I can wedge it in there somewhere, still its a 90% positive thing.
      Last, if both I and New Little Green make it a while, won’t wait 23 years but say if we both make it another 20 years I will come back and update this review!!

    3. The media could not be loaded.

       First let me say I don’t normally take time to write reviews but I just had to share my story because I’m still giddy about how well this machine worked.
      I recently purchased a beautiful cream, designer chair at a furniture consignment shop and the lighting must have been bad in the store because I didn’t notice at all that it was quite dirty. I was just so excited that it was exactly what I had been looking for – color, size, style and price!
      When I got it home it was perfect in every way EXCEPT the off-white that was so perfect in the fluorescent lighting was a dingy EWWW in the natural light of our living room. I took the armrest covers off and YUCK! I noticed how dirty the arms were and then noticed that I hadn’t looked that closely on the store – there were spots all over the chair!
      The store doesn’t take returns AND I loved everything about the chair except the grime and spots (how did I not notice those in the store???) so I googled best upholstery cleaner and the BISSELL Little Green Machine showed up as top-rated in multiple blogs so I searched for it on Amazon. It had awesome reviews confirming what the blogs has said so I ordered it.
      It came super-fast and was easy to set up. I got to work. Well, my sweet husband got to work. My plan was to have him handle the task as he’s usually in charge of the grimy stuff. Love that man. 😊🙏
      Well I had no idea cleaning upholstery could be so fun! This little machine sucked the grime right out! It was really satisfying to see it get sucked out right before my eyes. Before my husband knew it, he was free to watch his baseball game because I had taken over.
      When I was finished the cream chair looked like new!
      And I didn’t stop there.
      I had a 14-year old blue chair in my home office that had weathered two babies, lots of journaling and phone conversations with my feet tucked up underneath me, latte spills and just…a full life! Our whole family loves mommy’s blue chair as it’s where good conversations and snuggles have happened my kids’ entire lives. When we recently remodeled our home I was looking for a new chair for myself. My whole family protested because they loved it so much. It bummed me out because – well LOOK at the “before” photos of the blue chair I posted. Our whole house was clean and fresh from the much-needed after 17 years in the house remodel. Having to look at that chair, as much as I loved the memories of it, grossed me out.
      So when I finished the cream chair I thought, I’m going to see what the BISSELL Little Green Machine could do for the blue chair. I figured, worst case scenario it would make it worse and then I’d HAVE to get my new chair. 😀
      I honestly didn’t think it would make a difference. I had actually had a professional rug + upholstery cleaner look at it and say he couldn’t do anything to make it look better just two months ago during the remodel. So despite seeing the INCREDIBLE results on the cream chair, my expectations were low. Additionally, this was an inexpensive chair with a sueded microfiber fabric – not nearly as well made as the cream chair so I wasn’t sure if the not super-sturdy fabric would withstand the cleaning fluid or brush.
      I was blown away. As you can see by the Before and After photos – the BISSELL mighty little machine did an amazing job!!! The blue chair is saved and we are ALL excited. Yes, even me. 😃 I just wish I would have taken videos of cleaning the blue chair – the water was SO dirty. GROSS!
      Again though, it was SO satisfying throughout the process to see the dirt come out and have brand new chairs.
      This machine is WELL worth the very reasonable price and I also absolutely love being able to restore two chairs rather than buy new ones. Less landfill and consumerism to help the planet. And the pocketbook!!!
      A little technique scoop (if you’re still reading) – on the cream chair we sprayed the cleaning water from the machine on the area, then sprayed Resolve and let it sit for a minute or two before we sucked up the dirt. The Resolve did make the dirty water in the tank pretty foamy and I’m not sure if it could damage the machine or the chair but when we tried it we were kind of thinking we didn’t have anything to lose as the fabric was so grungy when we got it home to natural light, we would not have kept the chair if the BISSELL didn’t work. The machine seems totally fine and of course the chair is now clean and beautiful!
      I could not possibly love this little machine more and now I can feel much more confident with all of our new carpet and furniture because if we get a spill or a stain this lightly little green machine will take care of it!
      I highly recommend the BISSELL Little Green Machine!
