Cleaning Up Kid Messes

by Nicole of The Humbled Homemaker

Not long after we moved into our new house, I mentioned to my husband how much I would love a second vacuum cleaner–so I had one for each level of the house.

“Um, not right now,” he said.

Imagine how excited I was when not even a week later I received an email asking if I could like to review the new BISSELL PowerGlide®!

Even better, this vacuum cleaner even specializes in kid (and pet) messes! Yep, I knew this one would be right up my alley–and your alley as well!

To give you an overview, the PowerGlide® with Lift-Off® Technology is powerful yet lightweight enough to tackle the home’s toughest messes, including stairs, drapes and other hard-to –reach places.

Key Features:

  • No loss of suction and sealed system
  • One-step removable pod for portable cleaning
  • Long-stretch hose
  • Lightweight
  • Swivel steering for maneuverability
  • Adjustable handle for easy use and storage
  • 12-inch foot for stability
  • Large capacity dirt cup
  • 27-foot cord
  • Included TurboBrush® and crevice tool

I have to say I am really excited about the fact that it includes a one-step removable pod for portable cleaning, a long-stretch hose and is lightweight. See those stairs above? I must confess that I rarely vacuum my staircase–even though it’s one of our most highly-trafficked areas! Why? My old vacuum cleaner is just so cumbersome lifting up and down the stairs! I am super excited to try out the BISSELL PowerGlide® on the stairwell, as I imagine it will be a lot easier. Don’t worry–I’ll include an after picture in another post!

My girls love the new chalkboard table my husband made them for our school/play room, but, let me tell you, underneath that table gets pretty messy when the chalk dust starts to fly! When kids come together, the messes multiply! I am excited to try the BISSELL PowerGlide® here after play dates.

As you can see in the above picture, today there are some scattered crayons, a playdough container and even a piece of gluten-free bread crust under that table! Since it doubles as our craft/school table, messes such as after-school/movie snacks; art projects; paint, pen and marker stains; and sticky messes like glue, juice boxes and more find their way under there!

I am especially excited about using the BISSELL PowerGlide® to clean out our mini van. Families spend a lot of time in the car between road trips, school carpools and everyone’s activities. So, it’s not hard to see why there can be just as many messes in the car as in the home. Like the stairs, I don’t clean out the van frequently enough because it’s just hard to do with a cumbersome vacuum! I am looking forward to enjoying the portability of the BISSELL.
