How to dilute any of our Dirtbusters Carpet Cleaners in your Bissell machine

There are many types of Bissell machines, such as the popular Bissell ProHeat 2X, Bissell Powerclean & Bissell Big Green - but there are just two fail-safe options for diluting our products in your machine.

If your Bissell machine has 1 tank for both clean water and carpet cleaner solution, you only need to use 10ml of Dirtbusters carpet cleaner solution per Litre of water. E.g. if your tank holds 2.7 Litres, you would use 27ml of solution and fill the rest of the tank with clean, warm water.

If your Bissell machine dilutes mechanically and has separate tanks for clean water and another for the cleaning solution, you should still dilute Dirtbusters carpet shampoo, mix 50:50 with water. E.g. if your solution tank holds 1litre of solution, you should use 500ml of solution and 500ml of water.

Our carpet cleaning products are more concentrated than standard Bissell solutions, which means they need to be diluted before your machine dilutes it even further. This makes them last a lot longer than other branded solutions.

Save money on each carpet clean

How to Save Money with Each Carpet Clean Our carpet cleaning solutions are highly concentrated and therefore less detergent is required per clean. By using Dirtbusters extraction machine products you could save £7.61 per 1.5Litres*.

Buying our carpet cleaning products in 5Litre containers also saves on plastic waste and is far more environmentally friendly. With other smaller alternatives such as 1.5Litres, it would take 4 bottles to make just over 5Litres of concentrated solution.

5Litres of Dirtbusters concentrated carpet cleaning solution makes 500 litres of diluted product, that’s 13x more product than purchasing 1.5Litres with a lower dilution rate.

By using Dirtbusters carpet cleaning products, you could save money with each carpet clean. All while achieving professional carpet cleaning results with a safer solution. We create non-toxic, family & pet-safe solutions for your home.
