Cleaning Products & Devices

I'm a fan of things that go 'whirrrrrr', and one of those things is our vacuum. Yes, I'm writing about my our vacuum again. The thing is, I think about it often, not like every day often, but more often than a man should really be thinking about a vacuum.

We bought the Consumer Reports Best Buy vacuum, and really, that's why I think about it a lot. I have a subscription to Consumer Reports (an independant, non-profit, consumer goods review magazine), and I think it's the greatest thing ever. I want to buy everything based on their recommendations, because they really do let you know what works the best. For some things there's room left for aestetic preferences, but for things like vacuums, you gotta go with whatever works best.

My latest purchase wasn't actually the 'Best Buy', but it was the #1 rated product. It wasn't the best buy because it was more expensive, but I had a coupon, and it was on sale, so I think I got a pretty good deal on it anyway. And you gotta be excited about a good deal on dishwasher detergent. I'm such a geek.

The Cascade 2 in 1 Action Pacs (at 20 cents a load) really work. You should try them. I think you can get a coupon online at SmartSource. The 'Best Buy' stuff is cheaper, 9 or 13 cents a load. The Cascade really works, I put in a bunch of nasty dried-on-food plates, and put my dishwasher on the 'water miser' setting, and everything still came out very clean.

I'm such a geek.

Trish and I bought the Hoover Bagless Wind Tunnel based on the Consumer's recommendation and it really SUCKS! And I mean that in a good way.......

When Ben was little, he used to enjoy riding the vacuum. Maybe he still does?
