    CRB vs. ORECK XL

    When you say "Does Not Remove Carpet Spots At All" what exactly do you mean? Do you mean the pump isn't pumping out solution, or a spot is not coming out after multiple attempts?

    Yeah, I agree. That's way too much. Especially considering you can buy a steam iron at Walmart for $30.00

    I always used a steam iron instead. "SEAMED" faster to me.
