Carpet cleaner reviews

In addition to tackling everyday dirt, the wand on the Vax Rapide Ultra 2 enables you to apply a special solution to stained areas. Vax also gives the Rapide Ultra 2 a wide track width to cover a wide surface in one go, although in our tests the off-centre placement brushbar gave a surprising effect.

We also looked at how well the attachment worked on tough stains, such as red wine and coffee, and how easy it was to manoeuvre.
