Expert review

The Vax Platinum SmartWash carpet cleaner uses motion-sensing technology instead of a manual trigger to release detergent into your carpet. When you push it forward, it dispenses soapy water; pull it back and it dries the same patch. We tested the Platinum SmartWash to find out whether its innovative design is worth the steep price.
