Some of you may have read my tweet on Monday about my barfisode on the newly cleaned carpets. I haven't had a barfisode in quite a while, so I thought it was about time and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to break in the clean carpet! So, I nommed on a grass plant on the deck then I puked in two seperate places in the hallway.
WARNING: GRAPHIC GROSSNESS TO FOLLOW
Luckily, Mom had a couple of these new Bissell Stomp 'N Go pads handy.
She wiped up most of each barfisode, then put down a pad on each spot, pressing down on the plastic backing that kept her foot from getting wet. The directions say to leave on the spot for at least 30 minutes (and up to 24 hours), so after half an hour Mom checked, but the stains were still there. She put the pads back down and left them on for a total of an hour and a half. She picked them back up again, threw the pads in the trash, and waited for the spots to dry.
After the carpet dried, Dad vacuumed the hallway (Mom and I hid in the office with the door closed, neither one of us like the sound of the vacuum). Here are the final results:
The first stain, the bigger of the two, is completely gone! Mom isn't even sure if this is the exact spot where I puked because it came out so well!
The second, smaller stain is still a little visible, kind of a darker spot on the carpet. (By the way, Mom wants to point out that the big dark area on the left of the picture is just a shadow.) Mom thinks if she had left the pad down longer on this stain, it would have come out as well as the larger stain.
Final verdict: Pretty good product! Mom likes the convenience of the pads. They are individually wrapped and there's no elbow grease involved. Just throw them on the spot, plastic backing up, and press down with your foot. Walk away for a while, then throw the pad away.
We received two Stomp 'N Go pads free from Bissell. This in no way influenced our review of the product. The opinions stated in this review are our honest thoughts on the product. In fact, Mom is going to buy a box to have on hand for my next barfisode!
