There are all sorts of things we love about spring: the promise of Easter, warmer days, longer evenings and gorgeous blossoms springing up everywhere.

Spring cleaning might not be among those things, but love it or hate it, many of us feel it has to be done.

With that in mind, we're always on the look out for ways to make our annual deep clean easier.

Enter the Bissell SpotClean Pro 1558E Cylinder Carpet Cleaner, a powerful cleaner that can clean a multitude of furnishings and take care of all those clumsy spills and stains while saving you from time spent scrubbing.

Why we rate it:

Wear and tear on our carpets and fabrics is normal, particularly during lockdown, but this handy gadget means we don't have to live with those wine stains on the sofa, or coffee marks on the rug.

Not only does it work as a carpet cleaner, with its power suction tool quickly getting rid of dirt, dust and any unfortunate red wine spills.

The machine can be used to deep clean a whole host of upholstered items, from car seats to sofas and even mattresses and curtains, with many customers saying it makes them look as good as new.

While you may think your sofa looks okay, we can guarantee a quick swipe over with the Bissell and you'll be shocked (and also hugely satisfied) at the colour of the water after it has sucked up all the dirt and grime.

If you don't believe us, just take a look at a few of the before and after photos on the Amazon review page.

What the reviews say:

With a whole host of five star reviews on Currys PC World and Amazon, after reading a few comments you may wonder why you've not purchased one sooner.

  • "I Googled best upholstery cleaner and this popped up. A bit pricey but I went for it and wow, what a result. It does a terrific job and it's easy to use and not much mess when emptying it, in fact none at all. The sofa came up magnificent and I'm chuffed to bits. This little machine is a star as far as I am concerned"

  • "Great cleaning tool, my other half said it was the best thing I've ever purchased."

  • "It has a powerful suction and does what it is intended to do. It cleaned my fabric sofa with ease and I was shocked to see how much dirt was in the water cylinder. Next I will be giving my car seats a good clean. This little gem is so handy to have around the house and I am happy I purchased it."

  • "I am so happy with this purchase. I wanted to give a mattress a deep clean and it looks like bright white like new and smells amazing. I used the solution and a little Zoflora to refreshen up. You’ll want to use it on everything because no amount of hoover or scrubbing can clean as deep as this [as] the colour of the water will show (gross but hugely satisfying). Works really well on carpets too."

  • "Bought this last week, as a cleaner I thought it would come in handy so road tested it on a mattress, couch and wool carpet. OMG I wish I had taken before photos as the after ones would blow your mind. Easy to use, lightweight and very good results."

  • "Easy to use, powerful for the size, did a fantastic job of my stair carpet and also my sofa they dried overnight, seriously good product, would recommend."

  • "During lockdown have been deep cleaning the house. This has met my expectations. I used this on my six year old beige sofa and cushions and could not believe the colour of the water."
