Shark Rocket Review and Giveaway

Fall Cleaning Series Banner

Today we continue our series of cleaning products and tips for the fall season. If you struggle to keep your floors clean and are always looking for the latest and greatest invention to help out, look no further! Today I’m sharing my new Shark Rocket Ultralight Upright!  I am very excited to add this to my arsenal of cleaning products, and I’m sure you would love it too.

Prior to getting the Shark Rocket, I had a full size canister vacuum as well as a stick vac AND a hand vac.  Let’s talk about these first:

-My full size canister vac did a good job of cleaning up everyday messes, but it was such a pain to drag out!  It also didn’t pick up everything, and the attachments were kind of a pain in the neck, more than a help.

-I had actually stopped using my full size vacuum entirely, and I mostly used my stick vac, because it is lightweight. But it lacked powerful suction and had no attachments.

-And as for my hand vac, well, I bought it and used it maybe three times.  It was a total waste of money!

Enter the Shark Rocket!

Fall Cleaning and Sharing the Swiffer Effect

I’ve got working on a lot of interesting fall projects, including a Fall Cleaning Series, which I’m happy to kick off today with a little help from Swiffer!

I’ve always loved Swiffer products. We live in a multi-surface floor home, and the variety of Swiffer products available come in handy when it is time to clean house. If you’ve never used Swiffer, I’m sure you are at least familiar with the products featured in their “green box” commercials. I was very excited recently when I received my own Swiffer Green Box!  Today I’m going to show you what came in the #BigGreenBox and demonstrate you the #SwifferEffect in my house!

Inside my green box, I received a Swiffer Sweeper Kit, along with extra pads and wet pads, as well as a Swiffer Duster Kit and extra dusters.  These products make it easier for anyone to keep a clean home.  Whether you rarely clean and have a big mess to tackle, or you like to do daily cleaning in your home, these products will definitely help you get the job done!

Getting Organized with Spicy Shelf – Review & Giveaway

Spicy Shelf Review and Giveaway I like to stay organized as much as possible.  I like to be able to open up a cabinet or drawer and see everything that is inside and have everything easily accessible.  And when someone asks where something is, I like to be able to tell them exactly where it is, without having to get up and without having to do a lot of shuffling in the cabinet.  Although my stuff is already pretty neat and orderly, I’ve been trying to do a little decluttering and reorganing this summer.  I got a little bit of help with this from the Spicy Shelf.

Do you have noseblindness?  When we stay in our homes every day, sometimes we get used to the smells and may not always notice when things become unpleasant.  We only become aware of the odors if someone tells us about them OR if we leave our home for a few hours and days. We recently conducted our own Febreze Noseblindness Test, and today I’m happy to share our results, along with more information and giveaway! [Read more...]

Turn Your Clutter Into Cash

This summer I have a lot of home improvement and home makeover projects. One of these projects is to clean out our outbuilding, and one way we are doing that is by having a big yard sale next. Do you declutter? The infographic below tells a little bit of info on just how much unnecessary clutter people have in their homes. Very interesting!

Fighting Stains with OxiClean: Review & Giveaway

OxiClean Giveaway

A week or two ago, I started going through clothes for my upcoming, and much anticipated yard sale, and I also rearranged all my closets and drawers, putting away winter clothes, and getting those spring and summer clothes organized and accessible.  Whenever I do my semi-annual clothes clean ups, I usually find there are a few things that need to be thrown in the washer for a little freshening up.  Enter OxiClean!

I’ve been seeing OxiClean advertised on television for years, but I only just recently tried one of their products.  The company has a number of powdered and liquid detergents for clothing and dish washing.  In my case, I tried the White Revive Laundry Stain Remover.

The product comes in a small 3 pound tub, which is enough for 45 loads.  As you can imagine from the name, it is especially designed to remove stains and keep your whites bright.  But unlike other whitening products, the OxiClean is chlorine free, has no harsh odors, and is safe to use on colored clothes.  And it is also dye and scent free, which means it is safe to use on baby clothes and on items for people with sensitive skin and allergies.

Personally I was happy with the results I got from this detergent.  It did a great job of cleaning the clothes.  Plus, I know a lot of people don’t like the fruity or flowery smells that go along with other detergents, so if you are one of those people, this detergent would certainly be to your liking in that regard.

Giveaway! One Simply Sweet Home reader will win a box of OxiClean detergent.
