Vax Rapide Spring Carpet Washer/shampoo
Good machine to freshen up the look of a carpet/rug. Very easy to use and very good design. It has an on/off switch, trigger for solution release, an easy to remove tank and dirty water collector in the base, both of which are easy to detach and fill, empty and clean. The fluff filter is visible and easy to clean too. The trigger to release the solution is on the machine arm making it easy to use and spray the solution onto the carpet. I cleaned with just one tank of cleaning solution/water in the centre area of a room. The fine mist was sprayed going forwards and back once in a straight line on the carpet before releasing the trigger which allows the machine to dry it off and then I moved to the next strip. You think nothing is being cleaned but after just a couple of hours the carpet is dry to walk on and looked much cleaner. You do have to rub out/treat the dirt spots on the carpet first as this is not heavy duty and won't get them out without. It's a good light weight machine with well thought out design and great at refreshing carpets. I liked it and was very pleased with the job it did.
vax rapide, changing down to smaller model
I have had a carpet washer for many years, since my mother bought a very large all dancing singing model,the one that rinsed sampooed and dryed, only problem was once the water and shampoo were added it was far too heavy for her to move around,so I offerd to take it and buy her a lighter one being the older model of the vaxs rapide, Now I'm that much older I to was finding the all singing model became to heavy for me, so my daughter has taken it an payed for the lighter model which is the shampooer I ordered from you. The new model is fine for my needs but I think I prefered the older model that I bought my mother,
it is still very noisy but always was, the main complaint I have is you are always having to empty the tank the water float is far to low but it cleans well I think it cleanes just as well as the one that rinses and was very expensive model, and being so much lighter It is no problem keeping carpets clean,I also like the attactment for stairs ect, I was very pleased with the price as my daughter bought it I did feel a little guilty as the all singing model was about 7 years old at least, but she had been sharing it over the years and it is still going strong and hopfully this one will too,
I cleaned up
Having now owned a cat for a year now I wondered where all the cat hair was going.
I soon realised once using this machine.
The first thing I liked was the price I was able to get it for, then it was delivered extremely fast, double bonus. So as soon as it arrived I thought I would try it before leaving feedback, just in case!
How wrong could I be, this easy to fill machine that came supplied with a bottle of cleaner to start me off with found all the dirt and yes all the cat hairs in just one go.
Needless to say i left a glowing feedback comment and now cleaner and I are good buddies, especialy when it comes to clenliness of the carpets.
The only downside is that it doesnt clean to the edges of the carpet but as you dont walk there a lot then it doesnt need as much cleaning i guess.

Vax VO21a CARPET WASHER review
I was looking for a carpet washer because I had recieved numerous quotes from cleaning companies. I needed something that was light and easy to use. I did some research with different carpet cleaners and different companies. Looking on e-bay there was so many to choose. Asking friends who also use these appliances only one friend used something other than Vax.
After only two uses the machine has paid for itself. There is nothing that I can I say that would make it negative.
VAX VO21A CARPET WASHER
This VAX is very easy to use- just like a vacuum.It had to deal with very dirty carpets[muddy paw marks etc],and it coped admirably. I would recommemd it to anybody[to people with pets,it would be a godsend].Also, by shopping around,particulaly on Ebay,this model can be obtained reasonably cheaply.
