One product that came in extra super handy when we were all sick last week was our Bissel SpotBot. If you have carpeted areas and live with pets and/or kids you really do need one of these! We bought ours years ago during puppy house training and it was a Godsend! Just fill it with water and cleaning solution (I'm thinking about trying out white vinegar instead of the solution Bissel sells, my guess is it would work wonderfully), plug it in, set it on top of the spot you want to clean, select if it's a surface or deep stain, and then walk away! The SpotBot will do all of the scrubbing and sucking up liquid for you! It works beautifully!
As I mentioned, we've had our SpotBot for about 4 years now, and it's one item in my house that if it broke today I'd be running out to buy a new one... it's that good!
