    Freds is going out of Business here, and has some refurbished Bissell Little Green Cleaners for $39 .. wondered if they were any good for interiors?

    If not, what is what everyone else gets?

    I bought a new one. Mine has a heat setting that really helps to get stains out. Not the best on the market but def. good for a DIYer or a small time detailer. Id say go for it for only $40.

    I have had some luck with mine. If you don't have the cash for an extractor. This is the way to go. With some folex you should be set.

    I had one and liked it. Its definitely useful. ONly reason I got rid of mine is b/c I upgraded to a more industrial unit. I'd say its definitely worth the 40 bux.

    I have to go look, but I doubt this one is the pro heat .. one, but as little as it is, seems you could heat the water up before you put it in the machine ...

    Good investment... just have realistic expectations for what it can do and you won't be disappointed.

    Pretreat spots w/ a carpet brush and folex, then extract for the best results.

    I sound cheap, but i just spot clean with folex, then scrub with carpet cleaner then extract with my 7hp wetvac. The 80 bucks for the LGM will buy one hell of a scrub brush and alot of carpet shampoo.
