Product Description

Product Description

The Little Green compact carpet cleaner has multiple cleaning uses. It can be used to clean spots & stains on carpeting, upholstery, car interiors, stairs, and much more. It is lightweight at 12 lbs. and extremely easy to use. The clean and dirty water tanks are simple to fill and empty. The Little Green has a long 20 foot power cord and compact design (sits easily on a stair) so cleaning hard-to-reach areas is easy. The included Tough Stain Brush helps get out deep down dirt and stains.


If you have a white carpet you want to protect, the Little Green carpet cleaner should be stashed in your closet for emergency cleanups. This portable cleaner doesn’t replace regular carpet cleanings but is excellent for spot-cleaning carpets in the event of an accidental spill. The lightweight Little Green weighs only 13 pounds for easy traveling to rooms, staircases, or auto interiors to clean up a variety of messes, including pet stains, spilled food or drinks, and muddy footprints. In addition, the cleaner has a flexible vacuum hose and a long power cord that stretches to almost 15 feet long to provide ample reach along the stairs or in vehicles.

The Little Green’s stain-removing action is superior to store-bought chemical cleaners as it lifts the stain up with its suction before it sets in; other cleaners require you to rub the stain with a cloth and push it farther down into the carpet. The cleaner uses a combination of Bissell’s special deep cleaning formula and hot tap water to pre-treat stains. The solution tank is easy to remove and fill and slides back onto the unit with no problems. A wide and strong spray path spreads the cleaning formula over the stain and, after a little scrubbing with the stain brush tool (which fits on the end of the cleaner’s hose), the cleaner suctions up the stain and dries the carpet in one step. Dirty water collects in the back of the Little Green in another tank that is equally as easy to remove and rinse clean. This compact multipurpose cleaner is safe on most carpets and upholstery and stores easily in a closet or under a sink until it’s required for a spill. The Little Green comes with an 8-ounce sample of Bissell’s Little Green deep-cleaning formula and is covered by Bissell under a limited one-year warranty. --Cristina Vaamonde

Customer Reviews

This is a brilliant design.
The collection tank has begun to leak into the main unit when cleaning, which puts some of the dirty water/solution back onto the floor or carpet you're cleaning.
Worked great and saves a lot of money by using just a small amount of the formula at a time.

Bissell 14005 Little Green verses Hoover F5411 Steamvac Jr.

I've used both of these mini shampooers and was not entirely satisfied with either, but I preferred the Bissell's Little Green over Hoover's Steamvac Jr. and here's why:

I first had the Little Green for about five years. It was a great little vac with only minor problems. The fill and empty containers are removable from the unit for convenient filling and emptying. There is a cord winder built onto the unit, the hose wraps conveniently around the unit and locks into place, and the shape and size are convenient for most applications including stairs and storage.

The problems I had with the Little Green:
- It would occasionally leak a bit. The water seemed to be coming from where the hose connects to the base. It was a small drip leak that was easily solved by emptying the clean water tank after each use. We used ours so frequently that I sometimes left clean water in the tank during storage to avoid wasting cleaning solution.
- My biggest problem with the Little Green was the inability to completely clean the dirty water tank. I had four cats when I first bought the Little Green and eventually had four kids. The Little Green made it through a number of illnesses with us above and beyond pet accidents. The dirty water tank became filthy and unsanitary and was not designed to be dismantled for thorough cleaning. Eventually, the smell became too great and I had to dispose of the tank. I decided it was time to try a new spot shampooer - one that had a cleanable tank.

That's when I decided to try the Hoover Steamvac Jr. Both the Little Green and the Hoover spray and suck reasonably well for a small machine. As far as actual cleaning quality, the two are comparable.

I've owned a cleaning business for 26 years, and this machine is great. There are a few secrets to success with it:

To clean it and keep it from smelling, flush it after using. Suck hot clean water through the hose. If your unit is really dirty, suck a mild bleach solution and let it sit. ALSO, remove the rubber gasket at the bottom of the waste tank and clean it... this can be a major source of odor. It's very easy to do, but not mentioned in the instructions.

Use just clean water in the solution tank, and put the cleaner in a spray bottle. (The less soap the better. Use the scrubber on the nozzle and allow a few minutes of dwell time). Think of your machine as the rinse cycle in a clothes washing machine. Rinse the dirt and soap out, leaving a minumum of residue. A seperate bottle also allows more precise application of cleaner. And it extends tank refills, so you won't have to wait for the spray pump to reprime as much.

Durablility? I've used mine several times a week for almost a year now, what with business, dogs, and small children. No sign of wear whatever.

This is a brilliant design. Don't let the reviews that don't know how to work with it dissuade you. It is one of the finest, best engineered consumer appliances ever made. Get the least expensive model, as the Turbo Brush and heater don't work well and are not needed.

Drawbacks? Okay, it doesn't have the suction power of a commercial machine. If you want that, pay three hundred dollars more and lug an extra thirty pounds around the house.

I bought the Little Green the day after we adopted a puppy. Although it does a sufficient job suctioning accidents out of carpeting, I would not recommend it.


--Good at absorbing spills or other liquids from carpeting

--Compact and easy to store


--Dirty water pools in the bottom of the unit under the tank that collects the dirty water.

--The unit then leaks the dirty water out the bottom while using it.

--It is extremely difficult to clean.

--The dirty water never seems to be fully emptied even after taking the entire unit and dumping it upside down.

--It smells horrible! Even emptying it immediately after every use has not prevented it from smelling awful while using the machine. I think this is because the dirty water is never fully emptied. Hot, soapy water suctioned up after a clean up has not helped to remove the lingering smell.

We had a new puppy and needed some serious spot cleaning back up. I had used other Bissell machines in the past (you know, other puppies). This little machine does a great job of getting spots up and out. I sometimes use it in conjunction with spray on cleaners. However, this machine is difficult to keep clean. It has two chambers - one for fresh soapy water and one for dirty water. The dirty water chamber has a complicated flow system (it's the one on the right in the picture shown). Gunk gets trapped on the edges and tops of the dirty chamber and it doesn't rinse out easily. There's no way to take the bottom off and clean the inside of the machine. This means that you always have gunk in your machine - sometimes smelly gunk. My other complaint is that the nozzle for the spray wand is miniscule and when it clogs water isn't directed in a spray, it pools in a puddle. This model is the best I have found, but I think Bissell should make some improvements to the design. Oh yes, one more thing... I find that I can't unwind the hose without unplugging and winding the power cord. This means you're stuck juggling a dirty hose while winding the power cord.
