To me, stains are like little (or perhaps overwhelmingly large) ghosts that haunt their last place of rest — constant reminders of former mishaps. Whenever I look at one weirdly discolored patch on my bathroom mat, I see cat vomit that wasn’t properly treated before going in the wash. However, I’ve learned that failed attempts at spraying and scrubbing don’t need to linger — and better yet, they can be prevented from happening in the first place. The right accessory can make all the difference. 

Enter: The Bissell Little Green Cordless Portable Carpet Cleaner, which will be your new favorite spot-cleaning tool. This cleaner is just like the fan-favorite and TikTok-famous Bissell Little Green Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner, but with an upgrade: It’s portable.

“It has all the might of the original,” shares Senior Editor, Cleaning & Organizing, Stephanie Nguyen. “But now you can bring it with you everywhere because it’s cordless!”

Among the best of the best in the market, this cordless cleaner can flexibly reverse the trickiest indoor and outdoor messes in a matter of minutes. The super-cleaner also happens to be the Upholstery & Carpet Cleaner winner in Apartment Therapy’s 2024 Cleaning Awards.

Why It Won 

Owners of the Bissell Little Green Cordless Portable Carpet Cleaner describe it as “an absolute miracle machine” and “small but mighty.” With a motor and a lithium-ion battery packed into a sleek, compact case, the cleaner can be conveniently toted wherever it’s needed. 

It has two settings to choose from, both of which use a specialized spray pattern designed to optimize cleaning. “Turbo mode” provides high-power cleaning with a 20-minute run time, and “eco mode” uses less force and has a 35-minute run time. The machine comes with a set of trademarked Bissell devices: a Spot & Stain trial-size formula, a 4-inch Tough Stain Tool with a removable lens, a HydroRinse self-cleaning hose, and a charger.  

Countless product reviews detail how this cleaner has worked spot-cleaning magic on just about every mess possible, including dark green Play-Doh smushed into a white carpet, pizza sauce spilled on a velvet chair, and a diaper leak on a linen couch. Of course, the cleaner is also a go-to for freshening up everyday items used by humans and animals alike such as seat cushions, decorative pillows, car seats, and stair runners.

To drive this all the way (into your) home, a portion of all Bissell products go towards the company’s Pet Foundation. Clean your carpet and save a homeless pet? It doesn’t get much better than that.
