cleaning carpet options

hey guys so ive been looking and researching on what is the best way to clean the inside of my cobra and her rangers carpet. ive read about the bissel auto care heat pro, and the little green machine, but the general consensus is that the little green machine is ****. lol
would it be better to just use a spray bottle full of hot water with cleaner and a scrub brush and just wet vac it out, ot actually spending the 100 bucks for the bissel auto care pro heat?

thanks guys

the best way is to remove it out of the vehicle, wash it, and let it dry. fully. the jute padding on the back will hold water and eventually mold. when we do flood cars, or just cleaning carpets in general, we replace the carpet padding with new. it's cheap. we use laundry detergent along with some lysol to kill any odors.

i washed the carpet in my wife's car. I took it down to the car wash and did it there. but you have to let it dry completely or you will have problems down the road.
