Quick & Easy Clean-Up with Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner

I received complimentary product for this review, all opinions are my own.

If there is one thing that I must have clean in my house – no matter how chaotic it may be – is my carpet. I have great vacuum cleaner and it’s ran on a daily basis. So when the kids, the dog, or even the husband, drags dirt/mud in, or spills something on the carpet it stresses me out a bit. I usually grab a bottle of Rug Doctor Carpet Cleaner and a rag, and put some major elbow grease into getting the spot out. But sometimes that’s not enough. I usually have to break out the big, bulky carpet cleaner and rope off the living room and spend hours and hours getting the carpets clean and then another few hours keeping everyone off of it! So when I was given the opportunity to review the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner I jumped at the chance.


The Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner is engineered with everyday life in mind. It is designed for quick and easy cleanup anytime, anywhere so you can get back to your life in minutes. There’s some great features unlike any other carpet cleaners, such as: 

  • Compact! It’s fairly small, so can easily be put away in any area without taking up a ton of room. The electric cord conveniently wraps around the back, there’s a carry handle that pops up and even a handle release that lifts up so you can pull around when you’re cleaning. The motorized brush clips on the front and the hose wraps under the tanks.
  • The two tanks hold plenty to get many jobs done and are extremely easy to fill and empty when finished. My daughter does this by herself and even helps her little brother with it.So super simple!
  • The Motorized Brush is THE BOMB! It has a button to use the brush and a button to spray the water when you want more. Just move it back and forth on the stain/spill and it works wonders.
  • The suction power is top notch. I’ve only used it a few times, but I love how powerful it is cleaning up. No worries about leaving behind standing water when cleaning on your upholstery and other surfaces. (So they can run right in and out without blocking off the whole area until it dries!)


Want to know my favorite part??? Rug Doctor® Spot Finder UV Light
Spot Finder emits a bright UV light to illuminate stains and areas of odor caused by human or animal
contaminants. Use Spot Finder in a darkened Room to easily find the source areas of unpleasant odors on
carpets, furniture, beds and fabrics.
Once found, use Rug Doctor’s enzyme-based product (like Urine Eliminator) to penetrate problem areas and to
permanently remove the odor source. 

Awesome right??!

  1. I have a couple of dirty little boys in my house, so I could definitley use something like this in my life.

  2. Jaime says:

    We have carpeting in one room, and we’re often borrowing a carpet cleaner. This would be great for storage (and just that one room – for occasional use!)

  3. Dawn says:

    This is great. I usually clean up small spills with a hand towel, dish soap, and a healthy helping of elbow grease. This seems like a much better solution.

  4. Mitch says:

    Wow, that is the perfect device. I have seen the much larger ones advertised, but never a hand held!

  5. Debra says:

    That Rug Doctor did a good job. I totally need one of those with a dog in the house. It would make cleaning her stains a lot easier!

  6. Pam says:

    I could really use something like this since we have several dogs and accidents do happen. This is affordable and would be great for those quick clean ups.

  7. I need one of those! My vacuum cleaners never seem to work right

  8. Debbie L. says:

    I always do my own carpet cleaning adn Rug Doctor products work the best! I will check this out!

  9. Amanda H. says:

    I need one of these to clean up after my preschooler. There are juice stains everywhere!

  10. deb says:

    Really could have used this yesterday when I needed to spot clean the carpet before my party. This looks like it knows how to get the job done!

  11. I wonder if this would work on our couch! We don’t have carpet oooh but I do have a few rugs!!

  12. Rug Doctors are pretty great. Since I have pets , a kiddo and a messy husband I finally broke down and purchased a steam cleaner. I have hard wood floors in 80% of my house , but it works well on rugs and furniture.

  13. Melinda says:

    we’ve rented rug doctors in the past. they are definitely trusted in this household

  14. Betsy says:

    This would be great to have around the house! We have 3 pets so it gets so dirty, so fast!

  15. That is such a cool product. I actually got one too!

  16. Brett says:

    I really need to get one of these. This would be perfect for small messes my family and I make – including the pets.

  17. We have used Rug Doctor for years, with dogs, cats and when we had little ones, it is a great product! We also have one up at our cabin to keep the rugs clean.

  18. Rosey says:

    I think it would be cool to have a rug doctor. You’re lucky too, to have a good vacuum. We go through about one a year here, and we’re ready for a new one yet again. I don’t know if it’s me, or if is the vacuums, but I’ve been through some brands!

  19. Becka says:

    I have a messy marvin that I so could use this to clean up after! 🙂 Great product and great review!

    Oh man, we needed one of these in our old apartment! So many spots on the carpet!

  26. I totally need a mini Rug Doctor!! My stairs are such a mess and could use all the help they can get!

  27. We actually could have used one of these recently. Our dog got sick in the car and it’s so hard to lug the big carpet cleaner down the porch steps.

  28. Kiwi says:
