I have used the Rapide Spring Clean a few times now and have always found it to be very good quality, the solution you can buy from most places even argos stock it at a very good price. If used correctly it doesnt leave the carpet wet at all, it's just a case of reading the instructions and following the guide and i've never had to worry about it being wet.
The only thing is my son hates the machine as it does make a loud noise however really not much noiser than any of the others i have tried previously.
I purchased this cleaner after reading mixed reviews about it ..thinking it would be a medium quality cleaner at a reasonable price...it wasnt ..it uses the small cleaning tank of fluid in minutes and the only way i could actually get it to do ANYTHING was to put my foot on the machine to make it semi meet the carpet!! This eventually leaves the carpet quite wet but the most disappointing part is that it makes very little difference to the carpets appearance. Will save money and have them professional cleaned once a year as usual instead....waste of money and time
The machine came in it's original box which had been packed by Amazon together with a box of 6 cleaning fluid containers. The box of fluid containers had been packed upside down and one of them leaked which weakened the outer box and a soggy hole resulted. This is an Amazon fault, the actul machine works very well. I had an e-mail from Amazon asking for feedback on their packaging. I filled it in mentioning the poor way it was packaged and they have chosen to ignore it.
