Say goodbye to stacks of paper towels and buckets of dirty water
The Vax ONEPWR SpotlessGo is here to help – clean up spills and stains quickly, whether on carpets, hard floors or upholstery
It’s a handheld cordless machine that’s so simple to use that you can grab it the instant you spill something.
But before we get started…
Please note this machine is NOT intended to be used on vast areas of carpet. You need a professional, industrial cleaner for that.
This small, portable vacuum is for spots of dirt or spills as they happen, when your pet leaves muddy paw prints on the carpet or your child drops chocolate on the cream sofa and it melts.
In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the best features and whether the Vax ONEPWR delivers on its promises.

OK, let’s get started…
Pets and children can make a lot of mess in your home, especially if you have carpets that are more difficult to clean. That’s where the Vax ONEPWR Spot Washer comes in extra handy.
It has a wide set of innovative features that allow it to tackle everyday stains and spills with ease. Let’s take a closer look at them.
Pro Tip: Working with water on carpets and upholstery is best done in warm weather, otherwise it will take too long for the material to dry which could lead to funny smelling fabrics.
Best Features of the Vax ONEPWR Spot Washer
Easy to Use
The Vax SpotlessGo is cordless and incredibly lightweight at only 3.2kg, so you can easily use it around the house wherever you need it.
Perfect for spots on the stairs or out in your car on the upholstery.
Instead of running for a dishcloth or pile of hand towels, you can reach for this machine instead.
Not only will it do a better job, it’s a lot easier to use so overall way more efficient. Perfect for this drink spills when you have kids running around the house.
As mentioned earlier, the Vax ONEPWR Spot Washer is lightweight and compact, so much that it can even fit in a kitchen cupboard.
In addition, the 75-cm long hose also wraps around the body of the device and neatly clips into place so it won’t tangle with other items around it.
The only things left to store are the 3 small attachments, which can sit neatly in a kitchen draw.
You’ll mainly be using the multi-purpose attachment for everyday use, but the glass/window squeegee is great for your weekly bathroom clean.
Kills 99% of Bacteria
The Vax One Power SpotlessGo comes together with a multi-floor cleaning solution that will not only tackle the toughest of stains, but it will also remove over 99% of bacteria.
Once you’ve gone through the cleaning solution, you can, of course, use any other floor/carpet cleaner, or buy a replacement from Vax.
Be sure to select a cleaning solution that is kind to your carpets and non toxic to your children and pets.
Look for a plant based cleaning solution which is suitable for machines. There are lots available on Amazon.
Active Jet Spray
Once you add the antibacterial solution to the spot washer, you can use the jet spray to target stains with precision and spray them before cleaning.
Just make sure to keep the head close to the stain, as in the picture, as the jet sprays forward when you squeeze the trigger.
Pro Tip: If you have really bad stains, and your carpets can handle it, you can get low concentration bleach cleaners to tackle stubborn stains.
The Vax ONEPWR Spot Washer comes with a powerful 2.0 Ah lithium-ion battery that gives it 15 minutes of powerful cleaning performance.
In addition, the battery can be removed and shared between other appliances from the ONEPWR collection from Vax.
The battery takes around 90 minutes to fully charge, which may sound like a lot but the key is to keep it plugged in after use so it’s ready to go when you need it.
Also, once the battery is dead, which is inevitable, you can just replace the battery instead of buying a whole new spot washer, which is something worth considering when buying cordless appliances.
Here are the highlights…
- Lithium-ion battery (15 min run time)
- Innovative design
- lightweight (3.2kg) and cordless
- Compact with flexible hose
- 3 Year guarantee
- Trusted brand
- Kills 99% of bacteria
- Cleans tough stains

What are People Saying…?
Online reviews of people who’ve bought and used the Vax ONEPWR Spot Washer are mixed, but overall good. They can’t seem to comprehend how is it that their carpets were so dirty when they didn’t look dirty at all.
The sheer horror of the dirt it took out of my carpet in a “spot clean” is going to give me nightmares. Yes, there’s been a little building work but they are vacuumed weekly and look clean… Plus the bristle brush loosened a collection of embedded dog hairs (eeek). I am genuinely disturbed by the dirt that has been revealed.
So, naturally, I have to give this little machine a 5* rating. It is so simple to use, straight from the box – everything you need is provided including a bottle of carpet cleaning solution. I put the battery on charge, expecting that I’d be able to use the machine later this evening but it charged from one bar to full in around an hour. I didn’t bother reading the manual – the quick start guide told me all I needed. It took me less than five minutes to clean my “spot” thoroughly. The water vacuum seems quite powerful for such a small unit, and it’s always satisfying to see the solution/dirt being sucked away. – C.Robson
What’s the Downside…?
The one thing people seem to mind about the Vax ONEPWR SpotlessGo is the small capacity of the detergent tank.
It has to be constantly topped up to keep going, but when you compare it to other options, it’s much easier to fill a small tank in a machine than filling up buckets or scrubbing the floor by hand.
The water/detergent tank is tiny, whilst the waste water compartment is many times bigger. You will find that the detergent tank doesn’t last very long before you need to stop and refill it, which again is a pain. But still, overall, it makes cleaning a lot easier than doing it by hand. – Marco Busani
