The smell is quite strong, July 21, 2013
By Coffee drinker (Austin, TX) –
This review is from: Bissell 78H6B Deep Clean Pro 2X Deep Cleaning Concentrated Formula, 48 ounces (Misc.)
I bought this product, along with a BISSELL Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine. This product does clean well (and therefore I give it 3 stars), but after doing one room, my wife said that she could not stand the smell of it. I thought “great, I just spent over $500 on this machine, and I am not going to be able to use it.” I started looking at reviews, and I found the BISSELL 2X Allergen Cleansing Formula, which advertises no “no dyes or heavy fragrances,” and I bought it. When it arrived, I opened both the original and the new, and wow, what a difference. I used the BISSELL 2X Allergen Cleansing Formula to clean one room, and my wife said that it hardly smelled at all. So, on to the rest of the house…

2x strength takes out 100% of stains, November 22, 2011
By Desert Gypsy (Southern Utah, USA) –
This product gave me results that are nothing short of amazing. I tried Bissell 2x Deep Cleaning formula after having disappointing results with many MANY other carpet cleaning formulas; I had even resorted to a “professional” cleaning with only “fair” results. After the various attempts the carpet would typically look <50% improved, but certain mystery stains that were there forever would either remain or come back. No matter what I tried, the high traffic areas never regained the loft it used to have and never really looked clean. Even worse was after the chem -dry type cleaning the carpet actually started to attract MORE dirt, looking worse than before; I didn’t realize that the “dry” type cleaning is like shampooing your hair without rinsing and so after a few weeks I had to try something different. I used a Bissell Big Green Cleaning machine with this 2x formula and the results were incredible!
* Using very hot tap water I went over lightly once with water only to loosen the soap and dirt that other cleaning had left behind. I then went over the carpet in sections with the Bissell deep cleaning formula, starting with the high traffic areas so I could do those areas over again at the end if needed.* Due to 2X concentration you’ll need to use *half as much*; be sure to dilute properly since this is concentrated. I did not need to add extra for the high traffic areas but did spot treat a single small stain with about half a teaspoon at full strength.* I chose to rinse until the water ran fairly clear (2-3 passes) which did affect saturation and drying time.
Results: The carpet dried completely within about 5-6 hours. The color was noticeably brighter, the same color as in the closets where no wear and tear had ever occurred. The one stain that had been there despite many cleaning attempts was gone. The feel of the carpet was VERY soft. The scent was mild, pleasant not perfume-y ; the scent was gone by the next day and the rooms just smelled clean. I gave this a review about a week to post to see if the one stain would come back as it has in the past and so far it seems gone for good.
Very pleased with the product and highly recommend!

This stuff is powerful!, January 3, 2012
By Stranger in a strange land –
Don’t plan to use this product on simply sprucing up a dingy heavy traffic area like I did! Best plan on cleaning the entire carpet if you start because the small area you clean will be so clean that it makes the entire rest of the carpet look dingy!
Especially don’t do what I did – I ignored the fact that this cleaner is labeled double-strength (oh, yeah, that’s what they all say, right?)…but this one really MEANS it!! I used my usual amount and a bit more in my Bissell carpet cleaner and was pleased at how it quickly cleaned up the dirty traffic areas in the room. (I’d done this before with other cleaners and pretty much every area matched when it had dried.)
But to my horror, when I saw the cleaned up areas the next morning, they looked so bright in comparison to the rest of the carpet, I thought I had bleached those areas and ruined my whole carpet!! (Turns out there’s no bleach in this cleaner.) What I didn’t realize at the time was I had created a double whammy…that I had left too much of the cleaner itself in the carpet (which looks whiter when dry) and that it had amazingly cleaned old, old grunge out of the beige carpet…which I had thought was a dull, clay color!
After reading the first review of this product with some hope restored, I proceeded to frantically shampoo the entire carpet and then to go over it all again with plain water (as did the first reviewer) until the waste tank looked pretty clear (it originally was dark brown with dirt).
I can say with relief and satisfaction that the whole carpet looks great and evenly colored today. I’ve never encountered a carpet cleaner this effective before!
