Toddler Friendly Cleaning With Nimble

Since Erin was born we have been more and more aware of the cleaning products we use and where possible, we now try to buy products with her in mind. I actually don’t do any big cleaning jobs while Erin is awake as I don’t like to use chemicals around her just in case she somehow manages to get a hold of them or run in to a room while I’m spraying something. However, there are some things that just can’t be put off so it’s always nice to find a brand that has babies and toddlers in mind. Nimble

Hoover Freejet Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review

At the moment we have a 2 vacuum cleaners and we keep 1 downstairs and 1 upstairs. Our upstairs vacuum cleaner is a bagged model and it’s really heavy and bulky so I’ve been looking to replace it for some time now. AO.com recently sent us the Hoover Freejet FE18AG Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.  When this was delivered I was really surprised at how light and small the box was. Every other vacuum cleaner I have ever had has come in a really bulky and heavy box but not this one. As I unpacked the box I was even more shocked. There

5 Minute Tidy Ups With The Hoover Clik Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

Sometimes it feels like I am forever walking around and cleaning up crumbs as Erin drops them. Some days it’s a bit of a pain getting the big vacuum cleaner out just to clean up a couple of crisp crumbs or a tiny mess in the middle of the rug. We were recently sent the Hoover Clik SC96DWR4 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner to help us out and here’s how we’ve been getting on with it. The Hoover Clik Handheld Vacuum Cleaner needs charging before you can use it but this is generally the case with any kind of cordless product. However, this one

Trialing A Cleaning Schedule

My sister has been living with us for the past 7 months and while we loved having her here, we are glad to have our space back. Having an extra person live with us, actually 2 people for a little while, meant having ‘stuff’ everywhere and our spare room taken over. We haven’t really felt like we have had a good routine going for some time now but now that we have the house to ourselves again, we’ve decided to trial a cleaning schedule. John works full time, often 6 days a week and I work from home. While I

Kärcher SC3 Easyfix Steam Cleaner Review

Something you won’t ever hear out of my mouth is ‘My house is spotless’. Erin keeps me on my toes most of the time and while she’s at nursery 3 days a week I can usually be found at my desk working (or napping) and I know I don’t make enough time for the housework. We unfortunately bought a house where the previous owners hadn’t looked after it very well and we’ve ended up with some areas that are really hard to clean so I just don’t like doing it. However, we were sent the Kärcher SC3 Easyfix recently and I

Introducing The Vorwerk Kobold Cleaning System

Just recently we have been super lucky as we have been sent some great vacuum cleaners to use. Having only ever really owned cheap models and never being completely impressed I am always looking at what other machines can do and comparing them. Something I had never heard of before though was the Vorwerk Kobold VK200. Not only had I not heard of the machine but I hadn’t heard of the brand before. When I was asked if I would like a trial of the machine I was definitely interested and quite quickly said yes. The Vorwerk Kobold VK200 is quite

The Post Christmas Clean

This Christmas just gone was fantastic and for me, it was one of the best I have had in years. Well, best is probably not the right word because this last Christmas has been very different from the others we have had recently. Instead of it being just me, John and Erin we had my mum, sister and her fiance to stay for about a week. This meant having 5 adults and 1 toddler in the house with a lot of excitement going on. After it was all over, I was really looking forward to the post Christmas clean. Now,

Phillips Performer Active Vacuum Cleaner Review

We have had plenty of vacuum cleaners in the past and some have been better than others. Some have died a natural vacuum cleaner death and some have been so bad that we’ve replaced them quite quickly. The last vacuum cleaner we bought was absolutely awful and we couldn’t even use any of the attachments as they didn’t pick anything up. Kneeling on the floor with the main pipe was not fun! So, when we were offered the Phillips Performer Active vacuum cleaner to try I jumped at the chance. Setting up the vacuum cleaner was an absolute breeze and from
