Make Fall Cleaning a Breeze w Black & Decker (& Giveaway) Theresa August 1, 2016 Giveaways, Home 43 Comments When you think of cleaning your home, springtime might come to mind first, but fall is actually an excellent time to clean up your home. With a new schedule to remember, having your home look clean and organized can help reinforce organization in other areas of your life. Most importantly, your home will look great for the upcoming school year. Make Fall Cleaning A Breeze Getting rid of dust and dirt is simple with the right product. If you love the look of a clean house but don’t like the physical strain cleaning can cause, I’ve got the solution for you. First, for an easy cleaning solution, use the SMARTECH™ Cordless Lithium 2-IN-1 Stick Vacuum. This vacuum is different from so many other models because of how simple it is to use. In the past, I’ve tried out many other types of vacuums, and now I was excited to try this new item out in my home. Two-In-One To Make Cleaning Simple One of the most unique parts of this vacuum is that it is two items in one. You get a detachable, handheld vacuum as well as a full-size vacuum. Rather than spending extra money on two products, you get everything you need here. Regardless of how high or low you are trying to reach, you can get every surface clean with this one item. Detaching and reattaching the handheld vacuum is very simple to do! Smart Technology That’s Easy To Use Another neat feature is that the item comes with smart technology. You can determine the amount of battery power by looking at the part featured in the below photo. Many cordless vacuums don’t offer this technology. Being able to determine how much battery power is left makes vacuuming much easier. You can plan how much of your house you are going to clean depending on how much battery power you have. The second part of the smart technology is that the product determines the speed it should use, depending on the type of floor. Since the vacuum can determine how to best clean your floors, there’s less work for you to do. Lightweight And Easy To Move Even though you get two items in one, the product is super lightweight! Cleaning the house with such a lightweight item is easy. I was happy to find that I didn’t strain my muscles at all, even though I cleaned the whole house in one afternoon. To demonstrate how lightweight the vacuum is, my six year old daughter is holding it up in this photo. It’s so simple for her! Reaches The Toughest Of Areas Lastly, this item has an excellent ability to get to hard-to-reach areas. Frequently, I use a handheld vacuum to reach under the kitchen table, but leaning down so much can be painful. I love being able to clean everywhere, even below furniture, easily and quickly. When you’re running after kids and on the go all the time, making cleaning simple helps. Overall, owning this new cleaning product makes fall cleaning so much easier to do. This fall, when I’m busy with a new work schedule and balancing my kids’ school and extracurricular activity classes, worrying less about cleaning will be a huge relief.

I used to when I was younger, wash all the curtains, clean baseboards and pull out all the furniture to clean. I recently had heart surgery so this kind of thing I have to be careful with, though. I would love to win this vacuum. It appears to be much lighter than the one I currently have.

I’m going to, on a day in the near future, hit the dust and clutter hard until it’s sparkling and smells lemony fresh. I will have to break for cramps and water since I’m out of shape. It’s a big job since I have 3 kids 2 dogs and a man that only takes out garbage.
