5.0 out of 5 stars Carpet cleaning has never been so much fun!!, 8 Jan 2011
This review is from: Vax W90-RU-B Rapide Ultra Upright Carpet and Upholstery Washer (Kitchen & Home)
I recently acquired a Vax W90-RU-B Rapide Ultra Carpet Cleaner and I cannot believe how easy and straightforward it was to use and set up.

The cleaner arrived in a big sturdy box but once opened it was less than 5 minutes before the cleaner was ready to use. I had been out to buy some carpet shampoo in preparation but turns out I did not need it as you get a 473ml bottle in the box. You only need 40ml of shampoo per litre of warm water so it will last me ages.

I was home alone when I had my first play with the Vax and being of small build I had no trouble assembling the handle and getting my cleaner up and running. The only downside it is heavy but I was able to move it around easily if it took me a little time to climb up/down the stairs.

Before use you need to ensure you hoovered the carpets thoroughly - this is to make sure you carpets get a proper clean and any undue fluff etc on the carpet does not clog up the machine.

When cleaning the carpets you just press the on/off switch with your right foot as it's on the right of the machine and then use your left foot to press the other foot peddle to recline the cleaner so it can be moved along freely.

The trigger switch on the handle should be pressed when moving the vax forwards to release the soap solution and when pulling backwards the cleaner sucks up the water. The carpets were slightly damp but nowhere near as damp as when I have borrowed carpet cleaners in the past.

Once done, this vax is easy to remove the water chamber and to clean the dirty fill bottle.

Cannot fault it and wish I'd found this product ages ago : )
