This is THE Most Wished For Home Item on Amazon — & That’s Why It Makes a Wonderful Gift
Let’s all just admit it — there are some people in our inner circle, be it a picky sister or a Mom who has everything — that are just so difficult to shop for, they cause you to stress all season long. I’m a fan of keeping a running gift list throughout the year with ideas and still, there is one person on said list (who shall remain anonymous) that remains totally blank up until the week before Christmas, at which point true panic sets in. I often wish there was some helpful list out there that basically alerted me to great gift ideas for anyone and everyone — even the pickiest among us.
Well, turns out there is. Allow me to introduce you to Amazon’s Most Wished For section, which curates a selection of the retailer’s most in-demand items for others to browse and get ideas from. These are well-loved items that have repeatedly (and frequently!) been added to registries and wishlists on Amazon’s site, so you know they make for great gifts. The picks range from cozy sheets and cool barware to one of our favorite items here at AT: Bissell’s Little Green Multipurpose Upholstery Cleaner.
To be honest, seeing this petite-yet-powerful machine on Amazon’s Most Wished For list wasn’t exactly a shock — after all, it has a wide-reaching fan club on social media. Billed as a do-it-all upholstery spot cleaner, Little Green (as it’s affectionately known) has the ability to make quick work of all sorts of stains on your carpet, furniture, bedding, curtains, and more. It boasts a large 48-ounce tank capacity, which will carry you through tackling all of life’s little messes, from those cute (but crusty) paw prints in the entryway to the spilled smoothie on the armrest of your driver’s seat.
Little Green relies on a combination of powerful suction and a tough stain tool to help remove dirt and grime from the surface of almost any fabric. Simply spray on the cleaning solution and water combination, then scrub and suck it up into a separate chamber where you’ll get a first-hand look at just how much ick was hiding in your rug or couch (seriously, you may need to prepare yourself).
Reviewers love this little machine for its powerful results, especially when you consider just how small and easy to carry around it is. While many happy customers have pets or kids in their homes that contribute to the mess, we can promise you this: If you’re someone who has ever spilled a glass of wine or dropped a takeout dumpling on your couch, you could use this too. “I bought this originally because one of my dogs got sick a few months ago,” says one reviewer. “Unfortunately, my carpet is light gray so the stains were pretty prominent, despite scrubbing with a towel, hot soap, water, and vinegar at least five times. I thought the stains were “as good as they’re going to get,” so this device sat in my closet — unopened and unused — for almost two months. When I finally got it out to try last week, let me tell you… I’ve never been more excited to use a cleaning device in my life! I couldn’t just treat the stains, I did the ENTIRE bedroom carpet. (I know, when we turn 30 we suddenly know how to party!) The nasty brown/black water that was coming up with the carpet really put into perspective just how bad it was. You can’t even see the stains anymore — and this is after they sat on my carpet for over two months. This device is magical. Yes, it requires effort, but it’s fun!” Other happy customers called the device “a true lifesaver” and one even went as far as to say they get “giddy” any time they have to use it. Yes, we’re talking about cleaning here.
It may seem like an unconventional gift idea, but if you’re struggling to surprise the picky present critic in your life, this beloved cleaning device might be just the way to do so this holiday season. After all, if its #1 ranking on Amazon’s Most Wished For list is an indication, you won’t be the only one hiding one of these under the tree come December.
