      My kids are twelve and fourteen years old, and our two dogs are both ten years old, and throughout these years we’ve learned some very hard lessons about keeping furniture and carpets cleaned. For a while, we owned one dog that liked to chew everything, and then we got our lovely and adorable male basenji who occassionally likes to mark on things, especially if he’s been left to his own devices too long, or we’ve been out of the house too long without giving him a bathroom break. One of his favorite places to mark has always been on the leg of our couch. Luckily, in the past, we had a futon couch with a wood base, so it was an easy clean-up process, but the futon was seeing it’s last leg and my husband and I knew it was about time to finally find some new living room furniture. However, we found ourselves shopping for furniture around our dogs habit of marking, afraid that if we got a couch with a fabric back and

      legs that we’d be cleaning and scrubbing constantly without ever being able to get the stains out. My husband finally said that we can’t make decisions around the dogs and we should get the couch we wanted, so we spent a reasonable amount of money on a lovely fabric couch and loveseat combination and brought it home just knowing it was only a matter of time before our dog lifted his leg on it to mark it as his.

      And, of course, it didn’t take long at all, and before we knew it, we were looking for a good upholstery cleaner that would take care of the problem and, unfortunately, and future problems that might arise while we owned our dogs. Plus, with kids, who like to put their dirty shoes on the couch cushions, we knew we needed something handy for all kinds of potential disasters. So, we found Bissell Fabric and Upholstery Cleaner, which was actually recommended to us by a friend who cleans carpets for a living. He knew we didn’t want ...


      • to pay to have a couch constantly professionally cleaned, and he claimed this was the next best thing.

        This package deal was great, because it was inexpensive and came with a scrubbing brush. Who doesn’t want cleaning accessories with their sprays and foams and what not? The brush was safe to use on almost any fabric, and our couch wasnt the type to have fibers that would catch on the bristles, so we felt safe using it, and we knew it would really scrub deep down to get the stains and smells up. And it did! The directions are a little convoluted and complicated though. You have to wipe down the area you are going to clean, with a lightly wet towel or sponge, then vaccuum the area thoroughly. Then you shake the container well, point and spray a small amount of foam to the area and then use the bursh to rub it in thoroughly, scrubbing in an overlapping circular motion. It was amazing, because you could actually see the dirt lifting up out

        of the cushions. Then you wipe the dirt away with a clean cloth.

        However, there were some drawbacks. You HAVE to test your fabric first. Please don’t ignore this warning. Luckily, it didn’t affect the color of our fabric, but we’ve had friends whose whole counch was ruined because they cleaned large spots and the cleaner totally ruined the color of the fabric. Also, the brush actually fell off the handle after just one or two uses, which was a crying shame, because that was one of the factors that had me enjoying this product so much. Also, it didn’t really eliminate the odor completely. It got rid of the stains, and we still use it to remove stains on any fabric in our house, pet or otherwise, but it’s just not that great at treating the smelling problem. Overall, I give it a mixed score. On one hand, it’s great on spots, but on the other hand, you really have to read the directions carefully, and be wary of the brush head flying off on a moments notice.
