Giveaway: Spring Cleaning with Arm & Hammer and Electrolux (6 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 13, 2010 · 1,476 comments

The following review is from the Deal Seeking Mom project administrator, Mandi Ehman:

As the weather gets warmer, spring cleaning is on a lot of people's minds and Arm & Hammer and Electrolux want to help Deal Seeking Mom readers tackle this big project with products that make cleaning easier and our homes healthier.

Arm & Hammer

We're all familiar with the orange box of Arm & Hammer baking soda which naturally reduces household odors in refrigerators, pantries and trashcans and can be used as a natural cleaning agent, but Arm & Hammer also has a line of cleaning products that use the power of baking soda to help you tackle specific cleaning jobs around your home, including:

  • Arm & Hammer Clean Shower
  • Arm & Hammer Baking Soda Shaker
  • Arm & Hammer Scrub Free Cleanser
  • Arm & Hammer Carpet & Fabric Odor Eliminator
  • Arm & Hammer Essentials Trigger Spray
  • Arm & Hammer Trash Can Deodorizer
  • Arm & Hammer Fabric Softener Sheets

In addition, Arm & Hammer vacuum bags and filters are allergist recommended and offer HEPA filtration, which keeps 99.97% of small particles like dust, pollen and pet dander from being re-introduced into the air. With more than 120 different styles of vacuum accessories, there are Arm & Hammer filters for nearly all brands and models of vacuum cleaners.

Electrolux

Our family has always been a huge fan of Electrolux appliances, and we recently bought our first Electrolux vacuum, the Electrolux ErgoRapido Bagless/Cordless Stick Vacuum, which we love for daily vacuuming to keep up with the crumbs and dirt that our four girls seem to create.

So when Electrolux offered us the opportunity to try the Electrolux Versatility bagless/upright model, we were excited to see if it would live up to the standard set by the stick vacuum. It's hard for us to find a vacuum that works well on our hand-crafted custom wood floors without scratching them up, but we were hopeful this would do the trick while providing us with more cleaning power than the stick vacuum or our resident Shop Vac.

The box arrived, and my husband immediately unpacked it and began vacuuming, and it really did live up to our expectations. The innovative handle quickly releases a telescoping wand system that reaches up to 14 feet. We've rarely used vacuum attachments in the past because of the extra work of hooking them up or switching power to the wand, but this process is automatic in the Versatility, making it easy to quickly dust a high shelf, vacuum hair off the couch or clean up crumbs in the snack drawer.

Additionally, the Versatility vacuum offers:

  • A three-stage cyclonic suction system that separates most of the dirt from the air before it reaches the filter, so the filter stays clean and the vacuum retains maximum cleaning power.
  • A bottom-empty dust cup to make emptying it easy.
  • A HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of small particles from the air while vacuuming and includes charcoal technology to absorb and eliminate odors.
  • Quick and easy switching from hard floor to carpet mode, making it easy to vacuum your entire home.

I use Liquid Lysol for almost everything! I dread cleaning my windows on the outside (and thus have never done it!)

We clean all of the windows and screens, wash the bedding and pillows, and any curtains that are washable. I also get rid of lots of clothes and other unneeded items in the Spring. We fill a few bags and boxes for the Good Will. The older I get, the more I seem to want to simplify my life, and reduce the amount of "things" I own. The less I own, the less I have to clean!

Scary! ;) When I spring clean, I take it one room at a time. I choose a room and clean it top to bottom before I move onto the next. That way I don't skimp on anything!

27 Cori Westphal April 14, 2010 at 6:59 pm

Oh, and I dread my mini blinds the most. Yuck!

The first step to spring cleaning here will be to pack away all of the baby stuff. She's almost a toddler so all of the baby things I've been tripping over need to go!

Spring cleaning is getting rid of all the dust & cob webs that seem to pop up between Feb & April. I also move the king size bed & vacuum under there really well.
I detest! cleaning the mini blinds. UGH & they need it so bad.

43 Kelli April 14, 2010 at 9:54 pm

My spring cleaning consists of cleaning out our closets and donating unwanted clothing to a local shelter. We will also be going through our basement and putting carpet down. I will be deep cleaning the house from top to bottom...even though I do that every week.
