'Compact so I can carry it where I need it': The Hoover CleanSlate carpet cleaner is just $98 — that's over 30% off

If you have carpet or a rug in your home, it's going to get dirty at some point. Maybe it's a muddy footprint, a dirty paw print, or even a spilled glass of wine — whatever the reason, having the right tools on hand to clean up the mess is important. The Hoover CleanSlate Plus is a portable carpet and upholstery cleaner that can help remove even the most set-in stains, and right now, you can get it for an absolute bargain at Amazon.

This cleaner comes with multiple tools to tackle every kind of mess you can imagine.

Why is this a good deal?

Carpet cleaners tend to have a few things in common: they're big, and they're expensive. This is neither. At over 30% off, it's already a great deal — but the Hoover CleanSlate is also small enough that it can be stored away without taking up a ton of space in your home. And compared with other cleaners like the Bissell Little Green Cleaner, it's dramatically less expensive.

Why do I need this?

Even a seemingly clean carpet will have dirt that you can't see, and this powerful little tool helps you get at the heart of the mess. It has two built-in tanks; one for clean water, one for dirty water. It keeps the two separate so that you can clean for longer without needing to stop and empty out the reservoir. It also has tools to help you reach tough places, like the Tight Spot Tool and the 7-inch WidePath Tool.

Perhaps the biggest draw is that it isn't super heavy like many carpet cleaners. You can carry it with just one hand, which also means you can grab it quickly when a spill happens. The sooner you clean the spot, the less time it has to set in and stain the carpet. With the right cleaning solution, you can practically make a spot look like new.

Thanks to its small size, you can easily clean stairs, too! No more lugging a far-too-heavy cleaner up a flight and precariously balancing it while you try to get Kool-Aid out of the carpet. Now if you'll excuse me, my wife and I just got a new kitten — I'm adding this to our cart.

What reviewers say

"I have 3 cats and a puppy. I had a carpet cleaner with an attachment for beds and upholstery, but it was cumbersome to use and just did not get the job done," one pet lover said. "Money well spent! It's not too light that it feels cheap. It's not heavy at all, but most of all, it's compact so I can carry it wherever I need it."

Another homeowner wrote, "We bought this to use on our couch and recliner to do a good deep cleaning of the cushions. It’s so easy to use and works great! The furniture is like new and smells great. The suction on it is great for getting all the water back out."

"This is [the] first shampooer I’ve ever purchased. I was reluctant to buy this as I’ve tried other furniture cleaning products to help remove hard surface stains but to no avail. I am pleasantly surprised that this product worked as intended! My furniture, which I thought was beyond redemption from my rambunctious bunch of children, has now returned to its former glory," one parent quipped.

Say adios to even the toughest stains. You might believe that wine stain is a permanent fixture on your couch, but with this tool, feel free to host dinner parties again.
