Are there hand tools you can use with Kirby shampooer?
I love my Kirby and shampooer, but I am wondering if there are any ways to clean stains in small/tight spaces (in corners, between furniture, etc)... my old carpet shampooer had a "hand tool" attachment with spinning brushes, but I don't see anything similar for Kirby... I imagine I could put a tiny bit of solution down and use the zip brush, but I'm wondering if anyone has a better idea...?

Re: Are there hand tools you can use with Kirby...

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I believe that Kirby does make a spinning brush and If I remember it is a round brush that spins and probably will not get into square corners – suggest using a scrub brush with the Kirby Shampoo for corners and steps for areas that you cannot get into – use an old spray bottle to wet down the area that you are cleaning and use the scrub brush and if you do find the Kirby spinning brush that will do the large areas.

There is no other way to clean mattress except by using a vacuum cleaner. It is because when you use water in cleaning your mattress, this might start molds especially when the mattress layer has remains of moisture. If you want to have a stain free, spotless and moisture-free mattress, use a mattress pad. Or you may use a waterproof mattress pad to avoid unwanted stains in order to keep a clean mattress at all time. A waterproof mattress also protects your mattress against undesirable odor and has maximum protection ability.

Hello, Your belt is not properly connected. Here is the instructions to properly install the belt on the main power nozzle. It works exactly the same way as the shampooer head, so this should be of help...
There is a portable shampooer/sprayer that attaches to the hose ( the long one that makes the kirby a canister vacuum). It should have come with your attachments. Looks a bit like a gun without the tank attached to the bottom...the tank screws on.
To use it you would put the fingerguard attachment on the front of the kirby where the powerhead would normally go and the hose with the portable shampooer where the bag would go.
The tank on the portable sprayer/shampooer has lines to indicate how much water and shampoo are needed.
Be sure to put the mesh nozzle (sort of a triangular shaped thing with a piece of mesh along the front that attaches to the front of the portable sprayer) on the front of the portable sprayer if you want to shampoo..otherwise it will just spray a mist. The triangular piece with the mesh screen is what produces suds.
Vacuum the furniture thoroughly before shampooing. Once you've covered it with suds, pop the suds into the fabric using your hands...working the bubbles into any heavily soiled areas with a soft brush.
Then let it dry. 15 minutes to and hour depending on the amount of solution used.
The first link is instructions for changing a belt. The second is for the shampooer instructions. If you click on the links below, it will take you to my online guides and if you look there, your other question will be answered. Thanks!!
1. Raise the vacuum head all of the way up.
2. Remove the vacuum head by removing the belt and releasing it.
3. Place the shampooer head on the vacuum by securing the clamp and them put the belt on
4. Take the bag off of the vacuum by twisting at the base just slightly outward and lifting upwards and unclamp it from the handle
5. Put water and cleaner into the water resevoir.
6. Put the reservoir on to the kirby where the bag was by holding it parallel to the vacuum then using both hands, twist it outward slowly until it goes down onto the unit then twist back to parallel position.
7. Put the coil looking piece on the shampooer head on top where the hole is...it will only fit one way successfully.
8. Put the other end on the under side of the water reservoir.
9. Lower the shampooer head all of the way down on the carpet just like you would the vacuum head
10. Turn on the vacuum and reach down and turn the knob at the top of the reservoir, this will begin putting cleaner (tons of foam) onto the carpet. Just work in 3' x 3' sections, turning off the foam intermitently until you are finished.
I hope this helps.
