Is the VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design worth the hype?

If you’re thinking about purchasing the VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design and you’re looking for an honest review, you’ve come to the right place!

Is The VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design Really Worth the Hype?

This handy spot wash promotes itself as the quick and effective solution to cleaning up carpets.

Not to mention rugs, hard floors, upholstery and car interiors. It’s designed to combat pet messes, accidental spills and the dirt that comes from general footfall in a busy household.

But does it actually work?

We put this VAX machine to the test.

Our VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design Review

We’re not a huge household. Just me, my partner and our two miniature schnauzers that live under this roof.

But living in the countryside, we often find ourselves cleaning-up floors and scrubbing at kitchen floors and grubby rugs. And we often have to get our car interiors professionally cleaned.

So, needless to say, we liked the sound of what the VAX SpotWash was offering.  

The big question for us was: “Can it really do everything is says on the box?”

Can it save us time, energy and money?

There was just one way to find out. We put the VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design to the test.

What We Thought of the VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design…

  • The design is very compact, making it easy to store between uses. Most machines of this nature are much bulkier and take up a lot more room.
  • It’s reassuring to know how hygienic the machine is. Not only are the cleaning results thorough but the separate tool for pet messes is a thoughtful addition. Avoiding cross contamination is just one of the hygienic perks. The VAX Spot Washer Antibacterial solution is designed to kill over 99% of bacteria.
  • It’s simple to set up and use. I can be a little reluctant to use “clever” technology and machines, as I don’t enjoy studying lengthy instructions. But I was delighted by how easy the VAX was to use. Very limited need to refer to the instructions!
  • It’s versatile and works on all surfaces (including car upholstery). We thought this added to the value of the machine. Especially given how much we typically spend on getting the car valeted.
  • No need for any physical exertion! The VAX takes the sweat out of cleaning. The bristles of the SpinScrub Hand Tool automatically rotate to alleviate the need for manual scrubbing.
  • It’s super-easy to clean! The top of the tools lift off to remove the dirt that gets stuck in between.
  • It looks great! Okay, so this isn’t the be all and end all. But all aspects of the design have clearly been thought through.
  • After use, it left the house smelling fresh thanks to the odour neutraliser spray.
  • At £179.99 RRP it’s modestly priced.
  • The tank has limited capacity. This meant that we needed to refill the tank a couple of times for a 4ft x 6ft rug.
  • Don’t expect stain-removing miracles! Whilst the VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design clearly offers a deep and effective clean, it couldn’t entirely lift the light stain on our rug. The results shown below are after just one attempt to lift the mark.

    A second attempt may continue to make the mark less notable. For reference, the mark is just deep-set dirt from the pups. Plus mucky shoes that have been worn on the rug!

So is the VAX SpotWash Home Pet-Design Really Worth the Hype?

Yes it is!

This Spot Wash will continue to be used time and time again in our household. It’s already been borrowed by a friend who was amazed at the results. And my mum in next in line… she can’t wait to try it on her sofa!

So yes, we’d certainly recommend the VAX SpotWash Pet-Design to our friends, family and UKMUMS.TV readers!
