Dear Hoover

You and I have quickly become lifelong friends. I am shunning my previous BFF, Bissell as she has soooooo been replaced.

I have dogs. The only carpeted room they are allowed in is the laundry room. Between the mud tracked in, the snow, the dirt, the occasional puppy or lazy dog... the carpeting gets pretty unholy and atrocious. It makes me shudder, it makes me die a little on the inside when I think about the filth and mucky muck of it all.

Previously I had been blown away by the Bissell ProHeat 2X. I swore by it, I loved it, I contemplated marriage. So, yesterday I set about on my carpet shampooing journey that I dreaded. Now, the ProHeat was a fantastic cleaner in its hayday, but I find it to be too complicated, messy and time consuming to use. Well, it broke. It wasn't working, I was determined that I was going to clean the carpet yesterday. Why yesterday, I don't know, don't judge me.

I checked out WalMart's website to do a little price comparing and saw that there was a new Bissell ProHeat model- for like $300 bucks! I did some review reading and found that the Hoover SteamVac Silver got some pretty snazzy reviews, it seemed simple to use and was half the price! No one was keeping me from my mission to have one. I rushed to WalMart, bought it, brought it home and started putting it together- only to find the handle was cracked and broken. So, unphased I rushed back to WalMart, exchanged it and came home to continue my mission.

It was Godly.

It was heavenly.

The floor was beautiful.

It was so clean I would have eaten off it... okay, maybe not cause that's nasty.

The SteamVac was so easy to use a man could do it.

I fell in love. I have to say, My Darling Hoover, you suck hard- and thats not a bad thing!

Love always,



  1. :) Lol, my mums got a dyson animal. She would die if it wernt for that hoover. You are funny. Im gunnah read the rest of your blogs. Okay not all Four hunderd and fiftey seven (457) Lol. :)

  2. Aw, thanks! I don't suggest you read all 457 either- I'm not proud of them all. You can google letters or humor to get the funny ones. Okay, better yet, just skip the reviews/giveaways and you'll be good, lol.

    I'll check out your blog!

  3. Thanks :) lol i will.
    Have a good night!
    (or is it day over there? its half 7 pm in the UK)

  4. Good to know, do you have any vacuum cleaner suggestions too? I have cat hair everywhere

  5. That's a good question. I own a Kirby, which I quite like, but I have never found a vacuum that picks up hair and does a great job at it. I've found that shampooing picks up more hair than vacuuming- especially when the wet fur sticks to the wheels.
