Celebrate Everyday Messes with New BISSELL PowerGlide® Vacuum with Lift-Off® Technology 

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Sept. 16, 2013 – It’s no secret that life can be messy, but the most memorable moments are often the messiest ones. However, it can be difficult to revel in the moment when unexpected messes add to an already busy to-do list. Now, families can celebrate each day’s messiest, most enjoyable moments as BISSELL introduces the PowerGlide® vacuum with Lift-Off® Technology. The PowerGlide vacuum is lightweight and features a portable vacuum pod, making it easy to clean messes wherever they may be.

“As busy moms, we want to spend as much quality time with our families as we can and as little time worrying about cleaning as possible,” said Susan Carraretto and Janice Croze, BISSELL lifestyle experts and co-founders of 5MinutesForMom.com. “With the PowerGlide vacuum, tidying up after our kids’ play dates or preparing the house for a family gathering is quick and easy when the vacuum’s features provide powerful and effective cleaning in every part of the house, including stairs.” 

The PowerGlide vacuum with Lift-Off Technology offers two vacuums in one with no loss of suction* and multi-cyclonic separation for a thorough clean wherever it’s needed. At only 16 pounds, the full-size, upright vacuum features a simple brush-roll switch to easily move across all of the home’s surfaces, including hardwood floors and tile, and swivel steering allows for maneuverability around furniture and other obstacles. The one-touch, easy-release portable vacuum pod, weighing in at 9 pounds, makes it easy to clean stairs, furniture, drapes and other hard-to-reach places. The vacuum is also designed with a collapsible handle for compact storage and easy access when the next mess happens.

Now through Oct. 25, BISSELL Facebook fans can upload a photo or video that showcases their most memorable mess.
