Spring Clean Like a Boss

Spring means rain and mud and grass clippings and more rain and maybe some sunshine mixed in for good measure. For our family it also means soccer and football cleats, soccer balls rolling through the house (why??) and a very busy May and June until school is out. Housekeeping takes a bit of a back seat when running from one practice to another but in busy times like this, I rely on products I know do the job, recipes I know are quick and easy, and chocolate. Always chocolate.

In October I shared a Hoover SmartWash+ Automatic Carpet Cleaner review and giveaway, ahead of the busy holiday season, and I’m happy to share that since I’m a Hoover Ambassador this year again, I have a Hoover SmartWash+ giveaway for readers this spring once again!

The whole premise of my post back in the fall was that I wanted to clean my carpets but the idea of renting a carpet cleaner was kind of gross to me. The whole point of the product is to clean the yuck out of carpets, and who knows what that yuck may have been. I prefer my family’s own yuck, not someone else’s and if that makes me weird I’m OK with it. It turns out I’m not alone. Just recently my mom and sister borrowed my Hoover SmartWash+ to clean the carpet in a house that’s being rented out, before the new tenant moved in. It was much easier, and cost-effective, to use our own carpet cleaner than to rent one out. This way, we know exactly how the product works, have the cleaner solution on-hand already as well, and know that it will do an amazing job.

Here’s more information from Hoover:

The Hoover® SmartWash™+ Automatic Carpet Cleaner eliminates the guesswork with Automatic Cleaning Technology that makes carpet cleaning as easy as vacuuming. Simply push forward to clean, pull back to dry. No multiple buttons. No solution measuring. No hassle. Just seriously simple & seriously powerful. Remove deep down embedded dirt with FlexForce™ PowerBrushes. Plus, Auto Mix precisely mixes and dispenses the correct amount of solution for optimal cleaning while Auto Dry powerfully extracts water with HeatForce™ for an even faster drying time.

The Hoover SmartWash+ Automatic Carpet Cleaner was so easy to use that my 79-year-old mom had no issues whatsoever in using it for the very first time. She was nervous she would do something wrong, but I assured her, and she quickly noted, that the buttons are so easy to use, and the product itself so easy to manage, that she had success on the first try using it (and was pretty happy with herself too, I should note!)

Remember how, when you’d use a rented carpet cleaner you’d also have to ensure everyone evacuate the room and stay away overnight while the carpet dried? Now, with innovation in products like the Hoover SmartWash+, you can actually start the drying process on your carpet immediately. Sure, maybe those rental units offer a similar feature but you and I both know you’re left with wet carpet waiting to dry. In this case, yes, the carpet is left slightly damp (it doesn’t feel like the sierra dessert after) but drying time is drastically reduced and in a household with 5 people and a labradoodle I really like this feature.
