Turn "Oh no! Not on the carpet!" to "Oh, that's okay!"

Turn "Oh no! Not on the carpet!" to "Oh, that's okay!" 1If you have a carpet and you have little kids, you are bound to end up with lots of little spots and stains. From juice box drips to pizza sauce splatters to smeared chocolate to potty training accidents, there's almost no way to avoid the little "oops!" and "uh-oh"'s and "sorry"'s that happen with little ones in the house. 

For those moments, it sure is nice to have a mini carpet cleaner around. We have the Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach ($45.00) and it is powerful, easy-to-use, and quite efficient. 

Check out these features:

  • Extendable 18" stretch hose and nozzle is easy to use and gives you the extra maneuverability to get into hard to reach areas
  • Oscillating Spinnovation Brushes provide superior deep-scrub cleaning
  • Powerful suction easily removes spills, spots, and stains
  • Lightweight and compact design makes it versatile enough to use on carpets, upholstery, stairs, and the inside of your vehicle

Turn "Oh no! Not on the carpet!" to "Oh, that's okay!" 2My husband carried this around our house right when we received it and scrubbed at the various little circles and spots that have accumulated in our bedrooms, courtesy of our very sweet (but sometimes very sticky) almost-2-year-old daughter. He was very impressed and has since brought it out to show to our friends (and to highly recommend it). 

The Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach can be purchased online on the Dirt Devil site or at Target for $45.00.

  1. I know the deadline has passed but I have to say the nice thing about old really beat up wood floors is nothing can happen to them that will make them worse than they already are!

  2. This looks so wonderful, I have a 4 yr old and 5 little dogs. So this would be an answer to my prayers instead of having to lug out the big huge steam cleaner all the time.

  3. I could use this something fierce. 3 cats, two who are a bit on in years if you know what I mean.

    Oh Please.

  4. With 3 kids, 2 dogs, and 1 husband, this would be really great to have on hand! Thanks for another great giveaway :D

  5. I have light carpet,which I realize now was
    a mistake.One little spot makes the whole carpet
    look dirty.It seems like I am always carrying
    around my scrub brush and solution to clean
    yet another spot.So I would love to enter this
    giveaway and thanks

  6. OOOOOOHHHHH! OOOOOOHHHHH! OOOOOOHHHHH!-- Arnold Horshack: [whenever he raises his hand]
    Could this be any more fabulous??? There are no words for how much I need this! It would be so wonderful to win!

  7. I would absolutely love to win this. It is so perfect for my needs especially since I have been wanting to get a spot scrub remover for quite some time now. This is a great giveaway and I really hope I win. Thanks.

  8. Really would like to win this. I have 2 mini dachshunds that make messes sometimes and this would be great to have.

  9. would this be wonderful between the adults, children, granchildren and any two to four legged creatures for spots, stains, bris removal. many thanks SW

  10. I so need this even though I have almost no carpet! I can't stand my couches, which is where a good 75% of our food is eaten. Plus I have area rugs that are hard to keep clean.

    qtpies5 @msn. com

  11. This would be great because you know how kids can be...you can tell them to be careful and sure enough they spill it!

  12. I have 2 kids and they always try to be careful but it obviously doesn't always work. I sure could use this.

  13. I would love this. I have stains on my rugs that I have no idea what they are...okay one is chocolate

  14. My husband and I have no "real" kids, but we do have 4 dogs, 2 cats, 2 birds, and a hedgehog. Needless to say.............we could REALLY use this!!!

  15. I have a puppy and this would be a great help! He sometimes has accidents and I can't catch them in time. Awesome website! I am a first time visitor.

  16. NEED THIS! 3 year old, playdates with other 3 year olds, teenager, teenager's friends, one dog, and 3 cats.

  17. This would be so great! With bad arthritis in my right hand, I do have problems with cleaning. Grand baby and parents are here for awhile along with an entire zoo!

  18. This sounds like just what I need. No little ones, just my creaky old bones protesting when I have to clean spots.

  19. I would love to have this; it sure would be nice for those quick pick ups just before unexpected company and as I run behind the grands.

  20. I've experimented with a lot of cleaning supplies and equipment, and would love to try this one. Thanks for hosting!

  21. This looks fabulous. Dirt devil already makes great products and I could use this to clean all those food spots from playgroups: )

  22. Would love to have one of these. I recently borrowed my mother's large Bissell steam cleaner which did an awesome job, but I'm a little daunted to use it on the stairs--I mean, that thing is LARGE--but I notice how they could use a little attention, especially now that the rest of the carpets are clean.

    Seems like it would be great on upholstery as well! We have this applesauce stain on one of our chairs I'd be happy to test it out on. :)

  23. I have been wanting one of these. With two kids under five, two cats, three dogs, and a husband that rides dirt bikes, there are always little spots for me to clean up! Thank you so much for the great contest!

  24. This would be an amazing addition to our household. With a very active toddler we have accumulated a number of hard to get out stains all over the house. I would love to put the Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber to the test!

  25. Oh my gosh would this be wonderful! Our cat has a habit of chewing on our plants and then leaving "presents" for us on our carpet! This would be so much easier than scrubbing!

  26. I have a puppy and although she is house broken she is very clutzy (like her mom and dad).. and she knocks things over frequently and it would be great to have one of these around the house to clean up her OOPS!!

  27. This product would be amazing to have. Just yesterday my mom and I were discussing how stained our carpet is. We've been brainstorming on how we could clean it and I think the Dirt Devil Spot Scubber could be the answer!

  28. i have three boys under 8 and my oldest is autistic so we have tons on messes! i could really use this! thanks!

  29. I'd really like to win this. I've been wanting to clean my sofa but don't have anything handy to do it with. This would definitely do the trick.

  30. My whole house needs to be scrubbed down. Counting husband, kids and grandkids there are ten men in this family, and none of them inherited the neat gene.

  31. What a clever device. No toddlers in this house, but spills for sure. A light weight substitute for those heavy upright carpet cleaners. I'd love to win.

  32. i would love this we just got a new puppy and are pottytraing him but i really need it for my girls who love to have koolaid upstairs and on the carpetno matter how many times we tell them not to

  33. This would be great to have on hand! Most sponges and paper towels just scrub stains into the rug even more, it would be wonderful to not have to worry about spills anymore!

  34. I was surprised to see that this mini carpet cleaner also worked on upholstery and even in cars. How convenient! This is definitely a practical luxury that could benefit most!

  35. Boys...boys...boys... I have five. This scrubber would be used daily in my household. Certainly would make my life much easier, I'm tired of lugging out the big carpet cleaner. Thanks for the opportunity to win such an awesome prize!

  36. With two young boys and 3 cats my carpets have seen so many accidents. It's always a nightmare trying to get the stains out. The Dirt Devil sound like the perfect little machine to help me clean up my families big messes with less stress on me.

  37. OMG this would come in handy. Something is spilled at least once week around here. And sometimes dish towels just don't do the job. I would love to win. Thanks for the contest!

  38. This would be great for those "mystery stains" that pop up, as well as the more obvious ones (kids, guests, pets, etc.).

  39. What a great contest! This would have proved fruitful when my niece spilled tomato juice all over my beautiful white carpet - I thought I would never get that out! Thanks for such a great contest.

  40. When we remodeled our house in 1978, we meant for things to last, and they have. My carpet could really use a boost--after all it's middle age!

  41. The kids are out of the house. But my husband is still around. I think he is sometimes worse than the kids.

  42. Between the kids and the pets, I often wonder what kind of germy eco-systems we have living in the carpet. This would make me feel a lot better about the kids lying on the rug!

  43. It is so stressful cleaning the carpets with little nephews nieces and children all over the house. Thanks for the contest!

  44. I really need this...with 4 boys in the household there is always something to clean off of the carpet...I would love to win this...it would make it so much easier than scrubbing the carpet by hand every saturday!

  45. Living in a household with bunches of dogs makes this handy little tool almost a neccessity! I would love to win it. Thanks for the chance!

  46. This would be so helpful around my house. I have 14 month old twins and a 6 yr old..so yea my floors are constantly messy..

  47. Every household should own one of these and Especially ones with children. Thank-you for the wonderful contest and have a great day.

  48. With 4 kids and a puppy, my living room floor and the rug under the kitchen table look like they are polka-dotted because of all the stains. I have a heavy giant steam cleaner that is old. It's too hard to lug that thing out.

  49. We have a huge steam cleaner but it's a pain to use and only dh can really clean with it. This would be great to have so I could use it on the small spots before they turn into huge ones. lol Thank you!

  50. I would be very happy to get this. With a new puppy and kids around all the time spills happen and I feel that if I bring out the big machine I need to clean the entire carpet.

  51. I am so glad I found your blog. I need something like this. I have a 15 month old daughter who is constantly throwing things off her high chair. I don't have a pet to lick my floors so this would be oh so nice to have!

  52. I've been eying that (though I'm not sure I'd seen the "reach" one?) for awhile now, our landlord is super uptight about the fact that they just recarpeted this house, which makes me more uptight about it.

  53. OMG this would be a lifesaver with a son who is constantly dropping liquids on the floor, couch, etc.. I'm glad they finally decided to make something smaller too!

    phillipsonlygirl at gmail dot com

  54. This spot scrubber sounds so nice, I am always wishing I had something that would be light weight but still cleaned up the spots, with grandkids and pets, we always have spots that need attention!

  55. Oohhh, Could I use one of these.....The Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach would keep my daughters new puppy out of "the dog house". That sweet little boy puppy "squirts" everywhere! We have trouble keeping up with him!

  56. I need to clean my sofa because I've been sitting on it while having meals and watching tv. Bad me! I need this item.

  57. We have a diabetic dog (so lots of accidents!) and two young girls...21 months and 7 months. Our carpert is constantly getting spots and stains. We use the product "Kids and Pets", but we're beyond spot cleaning with rags.

  58. It looks like this could be used by the kids to clean up after themselves. They'd need convincing, of course.

  59. I really need this! My boys are forever spilling stuff on the few carpeted areas that we have in the house.

  60. I finally caved a few years ago and bought one of the big steam cleaners because my kids seemed to think that syrup belonged on the carpet and not in their stomachs. I'll admit it's a pain, but much better than sticky carpet. That would really drive me crazy. This would be great to have for those morning spills where you don't want to get out the big machine!

  61. With two dogs, a cat with a weak tummy, and 4 kids..my poor carpets have seen better days. I'd have to keep this within easy reach if I won.

  62. I need one of these! With 7 adults, 6 children (under the age of 6) and 3 dogs, this would be a great help! I had a hand-held steam cleaner, years ago but it did not have scrubbies or retractable cord! It was such a pain in the rear to use because I had to haul it around with a scrub brush and a bucket of water just to get the spot(s) clean, this one sounds terrific and very easy to use! Gosh, I would even be able to clean the sofas in the family room with this, what a novel thought! I’d really love to win it!

  63. I have always wanted one of these but it never seems I can afford to get one. I see that the prices are coming down. With a new pet, grandkids, and teens still at home. I would love to be able to clean up spills in home and car.
    Thank you for a chance to win. Thank you for offering great prizes that are so useful and much needed.

  64. Ugh!! With a two year old, a husband, and two dogs, I could definitely use all the help I can get! Thanks for the contest! chrisandamyward at comcast dot net

  65. With a two year old (yes, like you - Lol) I can totally relate!! Hey, if it were my choice I wouldn't have any carpet at all...But until then - This would be totally awesome!! Oh and don't even let me get started with the car...haha - Food and snacks are no longer allowed!!
    :D :D :D

  66. This is so sweet! I can't stand getting out and hooking up my little green machine which isn't even little at all. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  67. This sounds like something I could use. I have a carpet cleaner, but it's such a big, heavy machine that I seldom use it. This makes more sense for those day to day spills that happen.

  68. ohhh I really need this. With 3 teenage boys in the house there is always some mess I need to clean and this would help get the job done right. thanks

  69. My pristine carpet is now stained likewise and it's enough to drive my husband batty, who's easily grossed. Since we're in the throes of potty-training, this is an additional problem. It's either win this innovative product or get hardwood floors everywhere. I'm thinking winning would be a more economical option :-)

    Thanks as always for your great giveaways!

  70. I've forever finding little stops around my house and of course no one will ever own up to them. What a handy thing this would be to have around the house.

  71. I could really use this for my new house - it's going to be fun to keep the carpets clean with a 2 year old and a 6 year old! Thank you for such a great opportunity!!

  72. It isn't the kids (who have been doing better lately) but the cats that make me want this so much! Their hairballs are worse that 99% of what the kids come up with (well - except for the Elmer's glue, but that's another story...)

  73. There's been a lot of "oh NO" going on around here since we got a puppy in May. I've been spending way too much time on my hands and knees blotting and scrubbing lately. Oh, and don't get me started on the husband who can't seem to walk from the kitchen to the home office without dripping coffee all the way...grrr! This would make my life so much easier. Great giveaway!

  74. I have been looking at Bissell's *Little Green* for some time and meaning to get in to pick one up. With 3 little girls and a clumsy husband who likes to snack in the LR after the munchkins are in bed you can imagine what little spots and splatters I find on a regular basis. Up till now I hadn't heard of the Spot Scrubber--it looks like it would serve the same purpose while keeping a little moolah in my pocket. Thanks for the great heads up on this handy gadget. If I don't win I think I will be headed out to get one of these. :)

  75. I need this Dirt Devil more than you can imagine! I have a one year old and a two year old and my carpet is NASTY!! Every step I take I step on a cheerio, or a froot loop, or (gasp) a matchbox car! OUCH!

  76. With three toddlers, two kitties, a puppy and a hubby who loves to cook curry and play ruggers, I need help! This looks wonderful... manna from heaven. Wish me luck.

  77. This would be a something sent by god to me should I win it. With 3 children, 5 dogs, and 7 pet rats we have more stains than anything else... This is a real need for us!

  78. Two years in the home - still no stains (knocks on wood), but it would be nice to have this in reserve for when the inevitable one comes! Thanks for the chance.

  79. I have two boys, two dogs and a husband. I keep my gigantic steam cleaner in the corner in the living room because I use it so regularly on spots. My life would be so much easier if I just had a spot remover instead of having to use the enormous steam cleaner for every spot! We live in military housing with carpet through out so when we move every couple years they are picky about the carpet spots!

  80. I hate carpet because it stains and gets gross so easily but my husband loves it so it stays. So I'll just hand him one of these on his next birthday.

  81. LOL- My husband would probably love this too. Between the cats and toddler and preschool boys this would get a workout.

  82. With 2 dogs and 2 cats you can imagine the messes we sometimes find. Not to mention a houseful of 4 teens. Everything from pet stains to soda spills. Would certainly make life easier around here.

  83. I love to have fun with the kids inside on hot days. fun = mess. the other blue bubbles were all over the carpet. I so need this.

  84. OK, put 5 or 6 preteen to teenage boys (and/or girls) and one mostly freaked out cat in a family room for a few hours. Add video games and food. Could this help? Please?

  85. I have 5 cats, and between them, they have had a few "accidents" on our carpets. This would be heaven sent!

  86. I have three kids who just can't keep their food on the plate or make it to their mouth why I don't know. I have lots of spots from them this would be graet they could spot clean their own mess!

  87. My carpet is a train wreck, but since it doesn't look like it's going to be replaced in the near future, every little bit (like this nifty little machine) helps. It would give me a fighting chance against the messes my two cats make.

  88. If it works as well as your husband says, I need one of these. We've got those same sticky spots all over the house!

  89. Send your husband my way with this Dirt Devil. Seriously babies make such messy spots....everywhere! I just rented a carpet cleaner and had my mother-in-law clean the carpets, but here just three weeks later I am back to where I started. I like that this has the extending head, I could use it on my dog slobbered furniture as well.

  90. I really need this prize! I can't replace my carpet right now and need a spot cleaner instead of renting a carpet cleaner all the time!

  91. White carpet+black dirt+2 kids+1 dog=we need this!
    I wish our grass would start growing!
    By the way: Blogher is this weekend isn't it? Have a wonderful time!! Can't wait to hear about it!

  92. Love to have this for quick cleanups, no matter how hard I try there seems to be always a stain on my carpet somewhere

  93. 3 barfy cats and one messy, clumsy hubby equals this being a great prize to win as far as I am concerned! Thanks for the chance to win such a neat gadget!

  94. These little guys work great. Mine disappeared about 4 months ago and I haven't replaced it yet. Winning one would be outstanding.

  95. This looks like something I could really use. Our carpet is in pretty bad shape, thanks to children and pets.

  96. I have two of my grandchildren living here ages 4 and 7 and oh the spots and stains on my carpet. I could really use this to keep around after I get the carpet cleaned so I don't let it get this bad again. You forget all the messes kids can make when you don't have any around for awhile. Now I remember.

  97. That would be wonderful for my son and daughter in law to keep up after the three boys. They need all the help they can get with that wonderful handful.

  98. I've had "small, portable" spot cleaners that are still big and clunky. This thing is awesome...and tiny! Thanks for the great contest!

  99. Our carpet is mostly spots. We may have to do get the whole carpet cleaned first, then maintain it with this!

  100. I really, really, really need this. I've got a toddler who is into making creative messes and a small dog who is into making creative messes of her own. This would make my life sooo much easier.

  101. Just what we need for those difficult stains... with 3 cats, a messy hubby, a teen and a 1st grader I do have my job cut out for me. Thanks for having the giveaway!

  102. I can think of so many uses for this but mainly with a dog, two cats and visits from the grandchildren this would really come in handy.

  103. I could really, really use this. We have 2 dogs, plus 5 grandkids. When all the kids are here and they plus the dogs, spot here spot there. You know what I'am talking about. Thanks for this great giveaway

  104. That would have come in handy when my toddler decided to cook eggs on the carpet next to the heat vent. :D

  105. I'm in major need of this. I have a shampoo vac but who wants to shampoo the whole carpet? It's such a pain. This would be way more convenient!

  106. With two dogs and a three year-old we have LOTS of spots to scrub. We have a big steam cleaner, but it's a pain to drag out for small jobs. This would be really helpful.

  107. I've been wanting one of these for so long. My cat throws up hairballs on the carpet and my husband and son track in something. Not sure what but there are spots on the carpet. My husband won't let me buy this because he says these type of appliances don't work. I think he is wrong. I may have to defy him!

  108. This looks like an awesome little spot scrubber! I'm a neat freak and this is screaming my name. I also live in a small home so smaller appliances catch my interest.

    Thanks for the opportunity on this Dirt Devil goodie.

  109. I wish I could say I have no need for this but I do. Children, dog, and a husband who wears his shoes in the house are the reasons behind the need. Thanks!

  110. Wow I really need this! My husband is ..well always spilling his drink on the carpet this would be life saver thankYou!!

  111. The small carpet cleaner would be so nice. I mostly get dirty carpet at the entrance to the bedrooms where I have carpet. I have tile or wood everywhere else. It costs quite a bit to rent a carpet cleaner at the store and they are large and awkward to use especially for limited areas. This just may be the answer to my need to clean but to do it in a good way.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  112. Oh my rug may have more pee spots than rug after a little potty training regression after number 2 was born I need this

  113. This would really come in handy around my house with two little kids running around and making messes! I would love to have this thanks for the opportunity!

  114. My utility closet is busting with cleaning products and manual tools, but I have nothing as compact, convenient, or lightweight as this. It would be great for those days when my back is not up to a marathon scrubbing session.

  115. My precious elderly cat gets an upset stomach quite often, and this little powerful Dirt Devil would be a great help. Thank you for the contest!

  116. Boy would this come in handy. Instead of cleaning up after the animals I've been cleaning up after my daughter who is supposed to be potty trained. UGH!!!

  117. I could've used one of these this morning. My poor dog had six sick tummy "accidents" in a row :( *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  118. This looks so handy! At our house we have "coffee" accidents that are a pain to clean up.
    Thank you for the great giveaway!

  119. Okay, so my hubby wants a dirt devil pick upper thing SO BAD.I keep saying no we don't need it, in reality we really do need it. LOL!! I'd love to win this so I can surprise him with it. I was actually thinking about getting him a dirt devil for our anniversary as a joke. Hee,hee. Mean me.

  120. What a handy thing to have. I could have used it this morning when my cat got sick on the carpet (again).

  121. This is such a useful product, not only inside the house, but also inside my car! My poor car looks like a McDonald's bomb went off in it! My two cutie pies definitely helped in that department. This product looks easy to use and how great is it that it's so portable!

  122. This would be perfect with two little ones. Especially, when the one is always throwing his bottle around.

  123. Add 4 cats and one golden retriever to 3 kids and you've got my house..of course mom and dad *never* make messes ;)

  124. Would love to win. With little ones and 2 cats running around, we always have a little messes to clean up.
    Thanks for the contest!

  125. Wow do we need this! Combine the dog and two active kids and we have so many spots on our carpet. Thanks for the chance!

  126. This looks awesome, I don't have kids but my cats tend to have hairballs that leave stains, this would be great for cleaning that up!

  127. One time when my son was about 5 months old I placed him in the middle of the living room floor to kick about while I went in the kitchen to clean up. When I came back I noticed that he had squirmed his way about 5 feet across the room and in the process had squeezed some excrements out the back of his diaper and left a trail on the carpeting behind him. First I grabbed my camera because I couldn't resist his smiling face and THEN I grabbed the stain remover. The stain remover worked OK, but boy could I have used this handy dandy little invention.

  128. I can't even tell you how much something like the Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach would come in handy. I have two young kids, one potty training (and one starting soon) and I also have two elderly dogs. Accidents happen on a daily basis around here. My area rug and my couch take a beating.

  129. Oh how I could use this! With a 9 month old crawler and a 80 pound dog, I am always cleaning up messes! Thanks for yet another great and practial giveaway!

  130. With 3 kids, (4, 2 1/2, and 4 months) I have lots of spots all over the house. This would be awesome to have! Especially with the baby that started rolling over recently and leaves a spit-up trail through the whole house! Thanks for the giveaway!

  131. You know with kids and pets this would be the perfect thing to have around your house. It would making cleaning the carpet a little easier.

  132. I really need this! I have been planning on buying something to get out stains etc.and haven't had the money for it to be a "priority" item if you know what I mean. Would LOVE this!

  133. I would love to win this-with 2 dogs and a cat that won't stop barfing up rodent guts in the house it would really come in handy!

  134. My husband is the big kid to clean up after right now. He works a very dirty job and loves to come home and bring some of it with him. This little Dirt Devil would be a life-saver! No, wait....carpet saver!

  135. I would hand this right no my teenage daughter whose mind is always on something else...and is always dropping something! :) So she could be preoccupied AND get a good housekeeper at the same time...:)

  136. I really need this. We live in an apartment and always seem to get carpet spots that seem to come from nowhere!

  137. I would love to win this. My 3 BIG puppies track mud on to the carpet after the go out side. I really need this. Thanks

  138. I want this!! I have a spot cleaner type thing but it has no reach like this -- much easier!! Thanks for hosting!!

  139. This would be great! With two kids, three dogs, and four cats, there is a never- ending mess in my house. I sure could put that to good use.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  140. Wow looks great. That sure would be handy with 4 kids. I'm forever on my hands and knees scrubbing out little stops and messes.. Thanks for the contest.

  141. Oh PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!! We have a brand new house and my daughters have already trashed the carpet. WE have only lived here for 4 months! We need this!

  142. Over the years, carpet cleaning has gotten better and better. I'm so glad there is a lightweight, small scrubber that takes up little space and makes the chore easy enough to take care of it right away. My main spills now come from grandchildren, and I want to be able to say "that's OK, we'll take care of it" without dreading the job.

  143. What a great little product! This is an exceptional alternative to dragging out the bulky carpet cleaner that takes 15 minutes to set up -- all for a small stain. Before I could get my carpet cleaner set up, this little guy would have the job done!

  144. With two children, two dogs and four cats I could Desperately use this !!
    Thank you so much for offering this wonderful giveaway.
    I would LOVE to win !!

  145. I'd so love to win this -my floors would thank me! With a few house pets and two kids and myself plus the wonderful hubby - my poor floors don't have a chance and the Resolve bottle is empty, too often! hehe

  146. Wow, that would be so nice not to have to lug the carpet cleaner all over the house. I have a very nervous dog who tends to mess in the house when he is left alone. And now that my 16 mos old knows how to take off her diaper, I'm afraid I'm going to need this even more!

  147. I have a cat who hacks up hair balls and guess where they usually end up. On the carpet, of course. This would be so handy.

  148. I so need this! My dog (aka lily) is a mess. She recently broke open a whole bag of dog food all over my floor.

    so, spots, yes, we have plenty!

  149. This would be terrific at my house since we have four large dogs and two cats. There are always 'spots' needing cleaning around here!

  150. I would love to win this it would be so nice to have an easy way to clean up after my English sheepdog.

  151. My cat has left several stains on my carpet. I'd love to have a small portable cleaning machine! Thanks for a great contest!

  152. OKAY, this little puppy is a must have in a household with a 7 yr and 5 yr old.....SPILLS-R-US here!!! :) Thanks so much, this is a great one! :)

  153. I totally want this one! My one year old is into throwing her sippy cup on the floor and she has one heck of an arm! So, even though the sippy cups are leak proof (yeah, right!) - I end up with milk and juice everywhere. What a great product! Thanks for the chance to win!

  154. I'm a coffee-drinking artist. This means I always get both coffee and paint all over the place. I am good about cleaning up my messes, but all I normally use is a bunch of towels and water. This would be so handy to have in my art room.

  155. this product would be wonderful for our family with 4 boys and a naughty kitty!
    the stairs are the hardest for us to clean this product woulde be fab!

  156. I'd love this to get rid of the nasty carpet 'blobs' we have, they irritate me so! And the older my little one gets, the more we are accumulating . . .

  157. Sometimes, I think it is the various little stains/
    spots that bother me the most. Our stairway carpeting has lots of them. Please enter me in your fantastic drawing. I appreciate it! Thanks, Cindi

  158. After just stepping in melted chocolate on my carpet, I could definitely use this little guy at our house! With four boys, the stains are everywhere, and they really are hard to get out with conventional tools. This looks like it would do the job, though!

  159. This one's exciting! Most of the stains in our carpets are from the previous tenants in our home, but we add a few occasionally and this would be nice to have. Thanks!

  160. Oh how I need this! We have a puppy that is still not housetrained and it's wreaked havoc on our carpets. I would be so thrilled to win this! Thanks so much! :)

  161. I so need this. my daughter has very light carpeting and I am always spot cleaning. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. Hey, how long did it take you to get your zoobie? I ordered 3 (one of which I need to bring as a gift to a party) and when I track it it always says "ready to ship" never a shipped date and when it is expected to arrive. I dont want to come empty handed to the party

  162. My kids are slobs and I'm constantly cleaning up after them. Anything to make the job easier is great!

  163. This would be great. My niece and nephew tend to "forget" to tell me when they spill something, until it becomes a permanent part of the floor.

  164. I am ALL FOR anything that will help make my life easier..... and faster.... who wants to spend all day cleaning carpets? Not me! Nice prize... wish it came with maid service, too!!!!!

  165. Oh, wow! This would be sooo great. There is only one carpeted room in our downstairs- the kids' playroom. It has accumulated MANY little spots and stains (orange play clay to name one of many!). This would be so handy and my husband would love a clean carpet versus having to replace it:-). Thanks!!

  166. Theres always messes with my two year old. He is always dropping and dumping his drinks. He is always dropping food and the rug as well. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  167. This contest is awesome. I just had new family room carpet put down last Wednesday, and we want to keep it CLEAN!!!!

  168. I would love to have one of these for my beautiful rug, and pee spots left when my son sneaks out at night to curl up in my FAVORITE chair. Oh my, perfect for cleaning the upholstery in my vehicle, to my kids...driving equals snacking.

  169. This would be great to clean the spots in the kids room and our room for that matter. What a good idea. Thanks

  170. My SpotBot does great for the big pet stains. I need something like this for the little daddy stains.

  171. Our baby is still on the way, but right now we have puppies and we could really use the Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach on our carpeted stairs.

  172. Three kids and one filthy husband.... I'd love to have something on-hand that could deep-clean when I need it as opposed to renting a shampooer, etc.

  173. I have an 8 month old whose well on his way to crawling. I'd love to be able to deep clean the mystery spots on my carpets, so I don't have to worry about what he's getting into.

  174. with 2 kids, 2 dogs and genetic clumsiness, there are stains in my carpet. I was looking at this at target a few months back.

    I go through gallons of vinegar every months getting rid of mystery smells in my carpet.

  175. This would certainly be a blessing around our house. Lil Sugar is starting to spill things, throw her food and generally make a mess of our carpet. It wasn't our idea to have carpet in the dining room but we do and haven't been able to replace it - this would help us keep it looking better!

  176. What a great prize! I love that this is so portable. Great for those quick clean ups after the kids.
    Thanks for this giveaway and please enter me.

  177. I love this! A friend of mine has one that look similar but bigger and I've borrowed it from her a couple of times. It worked really well. We do have lots of little spots here and there and I suspect that there will only be more as time goes on. I'm sure I could put this to good use, probably too much use!

  178. We have a few of those "mystery spots" around our house too! They just seem to appear out of thin air. Every time I mention renting a cleaner, my husband says we should wait 'til we have more spots to make the money and effort worthwhile. I can see how handy it would be to be able to whip out this little gem and bid 'adios' to the mystery spots.


  179. Unfortunately these cute and handy little devices just encourage people who know nothing about carpet cleaning to SET in stains so they can NEVER be properly cleaned.

    Hint #1: A stain/spot should NEVER be scrubbed! Stains should be blotted with a clean white cloth usually moistened with whatever solution (water, white vinegar…etc.) best suits the stain/spot being addressed. This information comes straight from the carpet manufacturers! Scrubbing violates the carpet and stain guard warranty.

    As a professional carpet cleaner I often encounter the results = set stains, carpets that have for all practical purposes been bleached, dyed or had irrevocable damage done to the fibers. Of course folks then expect me to correct their mistake; often a year or more after they made it…you get the picture.

  180. The Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach is a wonderful product that I had never heard of until now! It would get plenty of use in my household! :-) Thank you for entering me.

  181. Oh, I so need one of these. Between the kids, the pets, and the husband, there's at least one spill or mess a day happening at my house!

  182. Ok.. Your husband sounds soooo cool! I need someone around the house that likes to try out new things and clean. (Other than me.. I think I'm becoming OCD about it, I can't go to bed at night if things aren't tidy. I don't need to dust, but I MUST tidy up.)

    I have 6 kids, one dog, two doves and countless friends. I need this just for my sanity. Luckily we got deep green carpets in the main rooms in the house (that we don't have hard flooring in) but it would be nice to help the rugs we have and some of the drinks that spill around coffee tables, etc.

    Such a great item... How in the world do you get all of these great toys? I wanna join your network! (but then I might become more of a clean freak LOL)
    Does UPS hate you as much as mine hates me??

  183. I bet this little gizmo would also be great for small pet messes. My carpet has many of these little spots that could use additional attention.

  184. Our downstairs carpet was so bad we finally ripped it out and put in laminate floors. Upstairs is pretty bad. Wonder if this gadget works on old stains? lol

  185. I would love to have one for all the little spills and spots that both my boys get on our carpets. It would be much easier that scrubing them by hand. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  186. I love that this has a stretch hose. It never fails to amaze me the places that can get spills, sticky finger prints, sticky paw prints, and mystery stains. This sounds like a great machine!

  187. Very cool little gadget. Just spent the last half hour taking apart my fancy vacum (?) sorry about the spelling to clean all the small spots in my house. A dirt devil would be very convenient.

  188. I love how compact this is! We are looking to move into a rental home soon, so this would be great to ensure that we get our deposit back!

  189. I could really use this!! My daughter is always spilling her drinks on the carpet. I'm not one to enforce a drinks in the kitchen only rule, especially since our only table is in the carpeted dining room.

  190. I'd love to win this. With 2 girls, even though they are a little older, still manage to spill things! Plus, my husband and I manage to have our fair share of spills! :o) This would be great to pull out and use, as it looks quite easy to handle! Great giveaway!

  191. Thank you for all of the wonderful contests! This contest is especially important to me. Why? Dirt Devil products have always been my favorite because they always do the job, never leave any sign of "the mess", they are lightweight and easy to carry throughout the house. I would use the Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach in my Family Room (mostly) because it has carpeting, and we have 3 small dogs. Our oldest dog, Muffin, is eleven, a cute Shih-Tzu who has recently developed congestive heart failure. She takes a diuretic and heart medication everyday. Muffin never had accidents before beginning the meds. But, at her age and the medication working...she occasionally has unavoidable accidents. The Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach would be a welcome addition to my collection of cleaning supplies, as I'm sure it would not leave any tell-tale signs of Muffin's "accidents." My Family Room carpet would remain clean and fresh!

  192. This would be a life saver! I have a 5 year old daughter and it seems that pretty much everything I give her somehow ends up on the floor. I also have 4 cats that like to get my carpet all dirty from their paws. Thanks for a great contest!

  193. I could really use something like this. With kids there are always spills so this would really come in handy.

  194. Three active children and two dogs (one being a puppy)in the house --this is something we could really use. Thanks for the contest!

  195. This would be perfect - I am used to pulling out a cleaning product and then applying some serious elbow grease to the spots that turn up (and they do turn up!) but this would make things so much easier. I think it would be especially useful for carpeted stairs, which seem to attract stains at a terrible rate!

  196. Between 2 messy sons, a messy husband, and a new puppy I am in dire need of this spot scrubber. Thanks for the opportunity!

  197. Considering hubby and I spill just as much as our daughter - we could use this! I think it would work for my car too. Would love it! Thanks.

  198. perfect for apartment clean ups! I have a really hard time getting out the canister vaccum every time there's a spot. I would like to win this, but if not, I'm headed to my dept. store to look at this Dirt Devil!

  199. Just spent all Saturday trying to clean spots on carpet in 1 room! What a great idea to have a little one so you don't have to drag out the one that weighs 150 pounds!

  200. I am starting to babysit kids now and it would be great to have. I have four kids ages newborn to 3 and three out of the four are boys. The newborn is a girl. It can get pretty messy around here with the boys and this would be great to have handy. Plus, it's not really big and bulky so it is great for our townhome. Thank you for the giveaway!

  201. 2's are sticky, but unfortunately 3 to 5 isn't much better! I would love to clean up some of the "tracks" in my home! Sign me up please :)

  202. Ooooh, we could really use one of these at our house. I have 2 kids under age 5, a dog, a cat, and a messy husband. And almost ALL of our house is carpeted. I'm sure it would get lots of use. It sounds like a great product.

  203. This would be perfect for me. My roommate's cats tend to make quite a mess and this would be very useful!

  204. This would be wonderful for me and my five kids. not to mention the four pups!!!!!! Thanks for the contest!

  205. We have SO many stains and I end up trying to hand scrub them each time. It would be great to have a tool that I could take care of these dirty spots. Thanks!

  206. This would be wonderful for us. Our dog is a senior citizen now and makes a little mess once in a while. Thank you so much!

  207. This does look super handy. I have a little, basic dust buster that I whip out daily (if not multiple times a day) for all the little spills & messes around the house. But I love the idea of something that would also handle stains!

  208. Dad's dog is not well! Has accidents all the time and he's getting frustrated. He's 94 1/2 and can't really maneuver the large carpet steamer. This would be good for him - it is only a small dog.

  209. I love that it has the reach hose/head now. I had one several years ago and it was a little cumbersome to get to smaller areas. I have a Little Green Machine but that is a pain to get out for a small mess where this would be perfect.

  210. Awesome giveaway. Any time you have toddlers around for any period of time it seems you find spots. This would be great to have. Thank you.

  211. I really could use that in my house, would love to win it, my cats make so many messes
    thanks for the great contest

  212. That's so cute about your husband showing the carpet cleaner off to his friends! Sounds like something my husband would do!! :) I'd love to win this one! Coincidentally, my daughter just spilled a whole glass of cotton candy milk all over my carpet yesterday!

  213. I would love to try this out around my house! We seem to have daily sippy cup stains that could really use the help of that scrubber!

  214. My three boys are messy but love to help around the house. This would be great for them to clean up their messes with!! Thanks!!

  215. Great prize. My disabled wife of more than 38 years would JUST LOVE this.
    Thanks for all the excellent contests!

  216. I would LOVE to win this! There always seems to be some stain of unknown origin on my area rug in the living room!!!

  217. I would love this! We have spots all over the place, not because my daughter is messy, but because my husband seems to spill stuff everywhere!

  218. I NEED to get my hands on one of those! I'm starting the adventures of potty training this week and I can just imagine all the accidents that I'll have to clean up! ahhh! Plus, everything else a 2 year old spills too!

  219. This would be awesome to get at all those pet stains before they set in!! What a great giveaway, thanks!

  220. As a homeowner with a dog, two cats, and a six year old son having a heavy duty spot remover handy would be a Godsend. We only have one carpeted room in the house and I really don't want to replace it until our son is more grown up. Something like this would help to keep it from looking so dingy.

    Thanks so much!


  221. This is exactly what I need to keep everything clean and get rid of stains that have over stayed their welcome.

  222. Ooh, I could really use this (but then again, who doesn't have stains in their house?!). I've got this tricky stain on the carpet, right here in the office, and I can't quite get it out. I'd also love to try it on my sofas when the dog stains them...cut paws, muddy messes, yuck! Thanks!

  223. I could soooooo use this nifty little item. With a 2 year old that thinks everywhere is a place to eat, I need something powerful to clean up behind my little piggy.

  224. My daughter just bought a house with white carpet. I imagine this could be used about every 5 minutes with 2 kids!

  225. This would be soooo much better than my current method, which is scrubbing and then staring at the remaining spot every day.

  226. We don't have wall-to-wall, but the area rugs in the kids rooms certainly have more spots than I would like - this product looks great!

  227. I have a lot of wood flooring in my house but have three big rugs that we brought back from our India trip several years ago. I would love the Dirt Deveil Spot Scrubber for these rugs, combating not only my daughter's sticky hand antics, but also the dog and cat! Maybe include my husband in that......

  228. The Dirt Devil Spot Scrubber Power Reach looks like a great tool to have on hand at all times. I'm a granny to 2 precious little girls and they can make big messes.So my home definantly needs the power of a Dirt Devil.

  229. I need this something awful. My vaccum died a year ago and as a single mom I can't afford another one and to make matters worse I was laid off from my job a month ago. Please send this to me please please please

  230. I have had my eye on this for a little while but haven't been able to decide if it is a "luxary purchase" or something we would really use a lot after the first time. I would love to win it and not have to decide.

  231. I have a toddler, so you can just imagine how badly I need this. But I was also a fool, and bought white carpet for my bedroom, and green for my living room. Yeah... clearly, I wasn't thinking at the time... Thanks so much for the opportunity.

  232. oh my gosh, how awesome. my carpet looks like a car ran over it. we have a carpet cleaner but it leaks and it doesn't work very well. i'd love to try this

  233. I can't tell you how many times I've wished I had one of these. We have a steam cleaner, but it's so cumbersome and such a process to use that it seems silly to get it out for just a small spot or two. So instead those spots just don't get cleaned up as well as they should. Between a dog and a toddler, we have our share of spots.

  234. I would love to win this great product to help around the house! I would love to win, too, because it is my birthday the day after your contest ends!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  235. We have a hand-held steam cleaner, but no scrubbies, no retractable cord, and it's too heavy and awkward to use for everyday life. Your review of this little gadget sounds wonderful! The way our carpet and upholstery looks (scary, truthfully!), I'd really love to win it!
