      Having cream colored carpets is great but keeping them clean is another matter and that is why I decided to buy a carpet washer. After looking on the Amazon website it seemed that the Vax Rapide Ultra was as good a choice as any. This carpet cleaner from Vax is middle of the road price wise and the product description seemed to offer what I was looking for.

      Areas of carpet that take a lot of tread can be pre-treated so that they are deeply cleaned, the brush bar on the Vax cleaner rotates so that the pile is lifted to reach the dirt that lays deep in the carpet. The makers say that the cleaner can be used on upholstery and carpets and it will clean up any spillages. The carpet cleaner is designed to allow your carpets to dry more quickly


      and a special tool lets you clean stair carpets and upholstery.

      I imagined that the Vax carpet washer would be a nightmare to assemble but I was surprised, attach the handle and fix the pre-treatment kit and you are ready to roll. The carpet cleaner is sturdy and looks as though it is built to last.

      The instruction booklet looks complicated but a lot of it is just common sense, the manufacturers include a bottle of Vax Ultra solution and they also throw in a bottle of the pre-treatment solution. To use the pre-treatment solution you put a little in a jug and then top it up with some warm water before adding it to the water tank that sits at the front of the carpet cleaner. To pre-treat an area of carpet you detach the wand from the handle and aim the ...


      • end of it at the dirty area of carpet, then there is a small button that you press to release a spray of cleaning fluid. If you pre-treat an area of carpet then you leave it to soak in for about fifteen minutes before continuing to clean.

        Next job is to empty the tank of pre-cleaning fluid and refill it with the ordinary carpet cleaner, same principle applies here the cleaning fluid is put into some warm water before it goes into the tank. Then you are ready to clean the carpets, the Vax Rapide Ultra looks and sounds a bit like a vacuum cleaner and you use the cleaner in much the same way. The cleaner isn’t too heavy and you just glide it back and forth over the carpet, every now and again you need to press the handle to let

        some of the cleaning fluid go through.

        The carpet cleaner sucks the dirt up and that dirt flows back into the tank, I was amazed how much dirt flooded back into the water in the tank, the carpets didn’t look that dirty. If you need to you empty the tank and refill it with more cleaning fluid. The end result is deceiving, when you look at the newly cleaned carpet it doesn’t look a lot different but as it dries out you really can see a big difference, the pile on the carpet looks better and the carpet cleaner does remove stains.

        The Vax Rapide Ultra is a good investment because once purchased you have it for years to come. I for one am glad that I bought mine and it has solved the problem of how to keep my cream colored carpets looking better for longer.
