I LOVE my Bissell SpotBot. It is just designed for spot cleaning but it is touch free! You put it over the spot, and choose either the surface or the deep cleaning setting--push the button and walk away! It squirts out the washing solution, moves its little brushes around, sucks up the excess soapy dirty stuff and beeps to tell you when it is done. Dump the dirty water container and you're done.
A few drawbacks:
1. At $110, it's a bit expensive, but it is well built and seems solid. I have an older model; it doesn't look quite the same; but I wouldn't think Bissell would change a winning design.
2. It EATS the cleaning soap--to me, that is the main drawback.
3. My carpet is old and dingy--sometimes the SpotBot cleans too well, and leaves a lighter circle where it cleaned. It's not the dye coming out; just the dinge. But if you live on a newer, cleaner carpet, I don't think you will have a problem.
