Every Supermom Appreciates a Sidekick

hoover.caDay to day #MomLife can get monotonous: laundry in, laundry out, school lunches, prepping supper, and getting the kids to bed are on constant repeat. Some days, you feel like a supermom, others a villain. Hopefully the days being more regal and kicking butt outnumber the villainous ones (they do, mama, even if you don’t always feel like it!) and once Mother’s Day comes around hopefully you get rewarded for all those days rolled into one (a drop in the bucket I say, but we take what we can get!)

Having efficient, easy-to-use, and easy-on-the-wallet products in your household can help with the monotony, and also give us more time for the things we really love. My latest home cleaning appliance has made my cleaning easier, and left me happier, and that’s always a win for everyone in the house.

For the past few years I had a very-expensive stick vacuum from a very-expensive brand that worked exceptionally well in the beginning but had brought me more frustration than anything in recent months. The battery stopped giving me a charge longer than 5 minutes, and my hand would hurt from having to hold down the button while using it. My daughter couldn’t help out by using it either, because it was just to hard for her hands to manipulate. A big frustration from a product that cost more than double its competitors.

So, when given the opportunity to review the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum (priced at half its competitors!) I was definitely interested. Now? It’s the only cordless vacuum I use and that other one is in the corner of my garage. Priced at just $249.99 (regular price), the Hoover Cruise is a sensible alternative for those looking for a go-anywhere ultra-light vacuum that performs like you’d expect from the Hoover brand of products.

My favorite features of this ultra-light but super-efficient vacuum:

1. Like its name proclaims, this is an ultra-light vacuum! It’s easy to grab and go, and surprisingly light. It’s super-easy to zip it through the kitchen for a quick clean up in the middle of making dinner (you know that moment making dinner when you step on the kid’s spilled cereal from breakfast? Yeah, that.)

2. An easy on-off switch leaves your hand cramp-free to clean quickly. This enables my 9 year old to easily use it, and I think it would be easier for older family members and those with arthritis, etc., to use as well. Prefer to have power at your finger-tips? You still have the option of a trigger button to hold to have complete control.

3. The steerable design means you can get this vacuum into tight spots with ease. My old cordless vacuum didn’t do this so I was surprised when I used the Hoover Cruise for the first time! “Why aren’t they all like this?”

4. The detachable hand-vac is awesome for getting into small spaces (stairs, couch cushions, vehicle interior, and even the living room blinds!)

5. Described as its “low profile”, the size and shape of the Hoover Cruise makes it easy to fit under sofas and beds.

6. On-off switch for hard flooring makes cleaning all the rooms in your house a breeze. Or, enables you to cruise through your house with ease. πŸ˜‰

Charging is a breeze – there’s a mounting system so you can keep it out of the way (ours hangs just outside our mudroom in theΒ  garage) and the 22V lithium ion battery holds its charge (it hasn’t run out during any of my cleaning sessions thus far). All in all, I’m super impressed with the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum and if you’re looking for one either as a mother’s day suggestion, or simply as a sidekick for your household, supermom, this is worth a peek. True story, superdads can use this too!

Look for the Hoover Cruise at a suggested retail price of $249.99 at, Lowes, Walmart, Canadian Tire, Best Buy and more!

  • We are constantly vacuuming and I’ll admit, we’ve gone through a few due to small pieces of toys and hair stuff. We would Love to get one of these! I can’t count how many times I’ve had to hand pick “Stuff” out of the couches and under them.

  • I love how this vacuum get into tight spots! My vacuum that I am using right now does not do that and it makes cleaning very difficult!

  • This would be awesome to use in our home! I’m forever picking up bits of cat hair etc. I love that its lightweight and easy to use!

  • I would love to win because my current vacuum is almost as old as I am and barely works. I NEED a new vacuum so bad.

  • The Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum would be amazing to have in my house for those jobs where I just do not want to pull out the monster in the basement. Most jobs are a lighter go over every couple of days … monster can do the once a week big job.

  • I vacuum everyday it seems and lugging our full size vacuum around is tiring. Also the power head is large and this is great to cover a lot of area but doesn’t get into small spaces. So the Hoover is a great answer to my situation. The review is very thorough and deeply described the features and capabilities of this versatile vacuum.

  • I’d love to try to delegate some vacuuming tasks to my kids. And this vacuum would be perfect for that. My current one is too heavy even for me.

  • I have a bad back and I need something that is lightweight for me to use, and something that I can handle that will reach up high and under furniture, sounds like a great one and I love the on/off switch too!!

  • Love to win because it looks like a very compact vacuum and love that it is cordless, would be perfect for our RV!

  • AWESOME! I love how easy it is to clean under the beds and stuff. This would make cleaning here in my home alot easier and better. Thanks!

  • I would love to win this Hoover Cruise, my current vacuum is old and worn. I’ve been looking for a cordless vacuum, this one looks like a good one to own!

  • I’d like to win this because I’m constantly vacuuming up messes from my three boys and our dog that sheds like crazy. It’s such as hassle when the cord on my vacuum doesn’t reach everywhere and I am constantly unplugging it to find a closet outlet. This would help me out immensely.

  • I’d love to win because I’m constantly sweeping. There’s dirt, there’s food, there’s sand… I’m thinking i should stop using my niece on the kitchen floors

  • I’m currently looking for a new vacuum, so this would be perfect. I had purchased a hand held vacuum, which I also lost the charger for.

  • I would love to win because I don’t have a cordless vacuum plus it’s more convenient and it lets me get all of the places my regular vacuum can’t reach

  • I would love to win because this is light weight and easy to maneuver ! Hubby has the job of vacuuming which he doesnt do often because the vacuum is too heavy to take up and down the stairs

  • I’d love to win this cause it’s light weight and since space in my home is precious, I love that it can be easily hung up and out of the way!

  • there’s a lot of tight and small spaces that we find it hard to vacuum due to the bulkiness of our current old vacuum, so this would be awesome

  • I need a new vacuum cleaner and have been considering a stick vacuum; I appreciate your feedback on the Hoover Cruise. Does this product have a filter that needs replaced yearly (or more often) and if so do you know the cost of the replacement filters?

    I use my vacuum cleaner daily, especially in the spring, as the dog and six year old track in dry grass from the spring lawn and bits of dirt and crushed rock. I like the idea of being able to hang the Hoover Cruise on the wall in the entryway.

  • I’d love to win the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum for my mom because I’m sure with the good quality it will last her for a long time!

  • My house is always needing vacuuming since we have 6 people living here and at least two more that visit almost daily.

  • My vacuum is super bulky and we’ve gone through a major reno. This would be awesome to win for a deep cleaning of the house.

  • I’m a bit aggressive when it comes to vacuuming because my current one is hard to maneuver and I also want to get it done and over with ASAP. As a result, I always end up with bent prongs, and unclean spots. Having a good quality and light weight vacuum would make vacuuming an easier task for me, and would allow me to get every inch of my floor.

  • I just moved into my own place and with funds being low I bought a cheaper vacuum. I borrrow my moms good vacuum every couple weeks to do a thorough cleaning but I’m dyin. For one to call my own. Never thot I would have vacuum envy in all my life.

  • I would love to win this to use on my floors when I do not feel like dragging out the hose etc for the central vac.

  • The last few years vacuuming has become a bit of a challenge for me. The stairs and moving the furniture to clean under are two of those things that give me problems. This vacuum would make both of those jobs a lot easier with the cordless feature on the stairs and the low profile that would fit under furniture. That is why I would love it.

  • I would love to win this because it sounds perfect for cleaning the whole house. I love that it’s so lightweight and the detachable hand vac would be so convenient.

  • I would love to win this as I don’t want to deal with tangling cord all the time. I like that this vacuum gets into tight spaces.

  • I love the detachable hand-vac option, and I could really use a new vacuum! My current one is ready to quit on me!

  • I would love to win the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light vacuum because it is cordless and 90 percent of my flooring is hardwood. At the moment I have a vacuum that I cannot use on my hardwood floors so I sweep them. This vacuum what be a god send.

  • I would love to win this because it does floors for both hardwood and carpets. It makes life easier having just one vacuum and not 2 for different floors.

  • My allergies have been terrible over the past few months and are worsening as our pets start shedding their winter coats. I could definitely use this for keeping up with the mess!

  • I really appreciate your review of the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum. My clunky, OLD heavy canister vacuum broke down…again…last week. #MomLife includes cleaning up heavy traffic areas or some spill or mess on a daily basis with pets and kids. I’ve been feeling like I’m the only one that doesn’t have the benefit of one of those pricey, popular brands. The Hoover Cruise sounds like it has all the features I am looking for! I am in an upper floor unit with lots of stairs and bad hips and the onset of arthritis in my hands too. A lightweight, maneuverable cordless vac with effective suction for multi-surfaces sounds like the answer to my needs. I am excited about this giveaway!!

  • This sounds like a perfect vacuum! We need something that fits easily into small spaces like under the bed. Those places are really dusty since my current vacuum doesn’t.

  • I like that this vacumn is ultra-light but super-efficient vacuum..It would be great for cleaning up daily messes that always happen and the price is great.

  • I too have been looking for a lighter vacuum that is easier to use than the heavy, awkward, super-expensive brand we have. It is a beast to carry between floors, and is too big to fit in all the tight corners. A smaller, lighter vacuum would make it so our floors could be vacuumed more often than they currently are!

  • I would love to win this for my upstairs as it is really hard lugging the big vacuum up there as I have a bad back. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • I love to win to have a vacuum that is lightweight and is easy to use daily to pick up the dirt daily.

  • Two words on why I would love to win- Golden retriever! Kids wanted a pouch and promised to clean everyday! But our big bulky vacuum is hard for them!

  • I love that it is ultra-light – and can get into tight spaces. I think this would be awesome for my trailer. I love that it is chargeable since I don’t always have electric hook up in my trailer depending on where we are camping or when it is storage.

  • I’ve actually been on the hunt for a new vacuum this last month. With so many different kinds and price points, it’s really overwhelming!

  • I would love to win the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum for my son who does not have a vacuum and who has 2 little ones and a cat to pick up after! 😊

  • love to win this because I like it that is light weight and plus I have 2 cats and one dog. oh cant forget a couple messy teenagers πŸ™‚

  • We have central vac in our home, but when it comes to cleaning my Jeep or needing to vacuum our basement (where there isn’t a vac outlet down there) means I have to haul my heavy dirt devil around, so winning this Sidekick would be wonderful!

  • I’d like to win because it looks nice and lightweight for my stairs and hallways! would be a welcome addition to my cleaning tools, thanks for the chance!

  • I would love this as I like that it holds a charge for an entire clean, and with three dogs and a cat, I tend to vacuum a lot.

  • This vacuum would be perfect for my house as the kids are always making a mess on the floors and its a pain pull out the big vacuum all the time!

  • I have three little girls, two dogs and a bird, so this would be a HUGE help for me! Between glitter, bird food and dog hair, my home is pretty much a disaster most of the time. Thank you for the chance to win… and clean!

  • I would love is because we have a big vacuum now and my small boys love to “help” and then it takes forever! This would be perfect and quick! Thanks for the wonderful chance!

  • I’d love to bring one home to give under our couches and beds a good cleaning! Sometimes’ we pull what we can with a broom, but it’s not the same kind of clean you get from a vacuum. I guess we could move the furniture around, but I’m all for less work not more!!

  • I want to win because my mom has the old bulky vacuum at home and she always complains to me that she can do one area at a time since it is too tiring for her with the lifting of the vacuum to different area in her home. This vacuum is light weight so it will be easier for her to hold it and can also help her to clean areas which are hard for her to reach using her current vacuum.

  • I love that there’s a detachable hand-vacuum. We have two large flights of stairs and lugging our current vacuum up and down is a back breaker

  • I have three little boys, a dog, a cat and a “creative” husband! This would be so handy. Although we have a Dyson that I LOVE, sometimes I’m just too lazy to lug it around πŸ™‚

  • This would be perfect for my husband who can not lift heavy vacuums due to a injury and our small kids who love to help vacuum!

  • I would love to win this vacuum because i love how it’s able to reach all the hard places to vacuum such as under the couches or beds, it would definitely help me a lot around the house!

  • I’d love to win to help me clean up faster on weekdays when I end up doing a 10 hr shift due to OT…sometimes I just dont have the energy to drag out the heavy old vacuum (ps I seem to have spelled my last name wrong…i hit submit to fast on the entry form thingy)

  • I would love to win as the vacuum I have now is hard to carry up and down the stairs. It would be wonderful have a lighter vacuum the does the job that I can easily use.

  • I love so many features of the Hoover Cruise cordless!,..I do love the ‘low profile’ so I can get under sofas and beds without moving them!

  • I love how you can switch from carpet to hardwood with the flick of a button. I have both carpet and hardwood in my home so it would be so convenient.

  • The low profile would be perfect for getting those little puffs of cat hair that float under the couch and TV Stand.

  • I would love to win the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum because it’s lightweight, portable, and easy to fit under sofas and beds. I’m allergic to dust and need to ensure that our home is dust free, in order to keep my asthma under control.

  • I would love to win because with two boys, a husband, a cat, very large dog, a house full of carpet (and did I mention I babysit from my home) I could really use the help keeping my floors clean.

  • This seems like it would be perfect for our house. We have a lot of hardwood so only need a little assistant to help to get into those harder to reach little areas.

  • The Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum would be a dream come true to win because I get tired from using my old vaccuum because it’s heavy and clumsy.I like how this vaccuum can do floors and walls with ease and get into tight spots.
    I also like the great attachments that come with it and how it makes cleaning the furniture a breeze.Thanks for the awesome feature and great review of how the Hoover works.

  • I would love to win because I love how this is light weight and easy to use. With 5 sons and 2 black cats, I could use something easy to use, easy to carry and reliable.

  • I would love to win this vacuum. I just use one of those $20 ones, and needless to say, it doesn’t do the best job! The Hoover Cruise looks easy to maneuver and can get into tiny spaces. Love it!

  • The vacuum I have now is super-old (20yrs!) and so heavy. I would love to win this because it would be easier for me to use when cleaning up.

  • I just purchased a new rug & don’t have a vacuum cleaner as yet , this would can handy for it as well as other things to clean around the home.

  • I would love a powerful sidekick to clean up after all the hair my dog leaves behind on the couch and floor!!!!

  • I would love to win so I could easily pick up the dirt my husband brings into the house, after spending time working in the gardens.

  • It would be so nice not to have to lug heavy vacuum around and replug all the time . Not having to change bags is absolutely awesome

  • Oh how I would love to win this super Hoover Vacuum. I love the detachable hand-vac which would be great for the stairs that always seem to need a good vacuuming.

  • This vacuum looks awesome! We have two cats, so lots of fur all the time. It looks like we can use it on the hardwood floors too, and it looks like I can detach it to use in the car? That would be a bonus! Thanks for the chance to win πŸ™‚

  • I’d like to win to help deal with all the pet hair around the house, getting under the couch with this looks so easy!

  • I’d love to win so I can vacuum without the hastle of having to unplug and replug in as I go to different parts of the house.

  • In order to clean under my sectional sofa, I basically have to destroy the whole living room, moving all the end tables/coffee table just to pull out the couch to vacuum underneath with my current upright. How I would LOVE the low-profile Hoover to simply vacuum underneath SO EASILY. It would be a relief!

  • That Lysol Disinfectant Spray looks like an amazing product!!! I need to get this! Thanks for the Facebook video!

  • I am older and have weak back and I have a very heavy sweeper to push and lug around which is difficult and tiring to say the least. With this lightweight and small Hoover cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum I could happily clean all over my house in such short time and not have to worry with a cord even. I love that it gets in tight corners and spaces and under furniture easily. With this being light weight I could sweep more often and I know it would pick up my pet hair much better also… It would be a joy to use and I so need to have this immaculate little cleaning machine!!! πŸ™‚

  • Between the dog hair and the sand from the kids shoes I need to vacuum a lot. This would be so much more efficient and easy to store than my central vac

  • I have 2 boys, 2 cats, 2 dogs and a rabbit. There is always something on the floor! This looks great for a quick vacuum job.

  • I would love to win so I can go cord-free. The vacuum I have is bigger, heavier and has a cord that I always get tangled in while using it.

  • I would love to win this for when you don’t need to drag out the central vacuum gear for a small clean up.

  • My current vacuum sucks (meaning it doesn’t very well) It’s a canister and pain to do stairs. Cord is of course just too short. It’s just not as portable and easy to use as the Hoover cruise

  • I have carpets in almost every room, 4 teenagers & their friends PLUS a Pug that sheds LOTS…worst of all..a crappy vacuum that barely works!
    HELP my aching back!

  • Ugh. Vacuums. We have so many, it seems! We’ve got an old hand-me-down cannister vacuum that takes up so much room in the basement, a shopvac, a hand vac that was once good for the stairs, but now it sits in the closet, infinitely charging, but never having enough charge to suck anything up. We’ve got an upright vacuum for the rooms upstairs, that sounds like it’s about to blow up, and has a cracked piece so when you really need to suck something up, you have to hold it in a very particular way so you can maximize suction. So I would LOVE to replace them all with something new, and something good for stairs.

  • Would love to win it would be a blessing for the stairs alone , so hard with the big vacuum and great for little messes that you just need a quick grab for !

  • I, too, have gone through a few portable cordless vacuums. This one appeals to me, especially easy on my old back. Would love to try it.

  • I have long-haired cats and lots of carpet. So vacuuming can be a pain. I really like that this is light, but powerful.

  • Life is BUSY enough without having to constantly clean.

    Some features that I really like about the Hoover Cruise Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum are:

    – its ultra light-weight so easy to zip around
    – easy on-off switch
    – steerable design for those tight spaces
    – detachable hand-vac – OH I love this one – to get into tight spaces
    – And best of all the great price.

    Lots to like about this model and brand and would love to win one because with 2 pups in tow they bring in tons of dust and dirt from outside and grass is a big issue. The little schnoodle pup’s hair is long and tons gets trapped in it and falls off in the house. Also everyday dust seems to settle everywhere and this Hoover vacuum would come in handy at a moment’s notice.

    Thanks for the great chance

  • Thanks for the review it is a vacuum I could use. However I would like to win so that I can give it away as a gift to a senior. Her canister vacuum is too heavy for her and could use a lightweight vacuum like this one.

  • I love how handy this is, I have a heavy upright that I find dangerous when vacuuming the stairs. This would be the ideal solution for me and very easy to use too.

  • We have four cats, two of which are white and hairy! Even the other two, who are orange. shed a lot. This vacuum would help so much in the daily hair round=up!
