Friday Favorites: My Fleet & NEW NUMBER

Okay, I realize that in the grand scheme of things, my floor-care essentials are really quite meaningless.  But, as a person who may be known to like things a little on the clean and organized side, they do make everyday-life much easier.  And, so this is a not-so-serious little commentary about the three tools that keep my floors spotless with the least amount of time and home-making troubles.

Without further ado, it is my pleasure to introduce you to the key players in my floor care regimen:
1. Dys*n Slim
2. Biss*l Steam Mop
3. Sw*vel Swe*per (yes, as seen on TV)

Glam shot.

Oh, I have had many vacuums in my lifetime.  I have had good ones with short lifetimes and horrible ones that wouldn't die.  I have cried in frustration as I realized that it would be easier for me to pick up the fuzzy stuck in the carpeting than to keep going back and forth, back and forth over it 20 times.  I have kerplunked heavy vacuums up and down the stairs bruising my legs and marking the walls.  I have yelped in more frustration as cords got caught on corners and came unplugged.  I shared many tales of my woes with J (poor guy) who finally said that enough was enough and it was time to find a solution!

That is when the Dys*n Slim entered our lives.  It is undoubtedly the most expensive "tool" I have ever owned.  But I must tell you, it is simply fabulous.  I seriously think I have NEVER complained about it.  It is everything you could ask for in a vacuum--lightweight, not too loud, easy to empty, long cord (I can reach every room on each floor without unplugging), long hose, and, indeed, amazing suction. :)  Truly a joy to use.

On to mopping...  Again, have used the wet and dry floor mops with disposable cloths, sponge mops and even good-old-fashioned on-my-knees-with-a-sponge-and-bucket hard-floor cleaning.  All of them either left my floor really streaky and still dirty or took a LONG time.  My steam mop is so quick and is always ready to go (I'm never out of any product because it only uses water!) and the floors are white-glove clean.   Mopping has never been more enjoyable. :)

The sw*vel swe*per.  Well, this little gem is just amazing in a house full of children.  It runs on a battery pack that rarely needs to be recharged, tucks away easily, and picks up every kind of crumb you can imagine.  Perfect for spilled cheerios, cake crumbs, cat food mishaps and tiny bits of paper from little people just learning how to use scissors.

And there you have it, my three best floor cleaning agents that hang out in the coat closet always ready to tackle the latest Miller mess in the least amount of time and effort. :)  In all honestly, really am VERY THANKFUL for them! :)

And, check it out!--For August our official and unofficial number is 20!  Almost in the teens! :)

  1. Swivel sweeper is my best buddy when it comes to cleaning my house. It never failed to impress me whenever I used it.
