In a perfect world, there would never be crumbs in the living room carpet…but I’m the parent of a toddler. Regulating all food consumption to our tiny urban apartment kitchen just isn’t practical. Our dining area? That’s connected to the living room and carpeted as well. So crumbs in the carpet are inevitable.
Ever hold a playdate in your home? For us they usually end up being impromptu get-togethers when we move from the nearby playground into our home for lunch or shelter from the rain. Everyone always seems to have a good time; we moms chat together, while our little ones get excited over the toys. [Baby J gets bored with his toys if he’s alone, but when his little friends come over, suddenly his toys are fascinating. :)] At some point, the kiddos want snacks, and food always gets dumped on the carpet. Fortunately, we have a vacuum!
BISSELL helps busy parents clean messes as they happen. BISSELL’s PowerGlide vacuum with Lift-off Technology can be used on multiple surfaces, even bare floors, with no loss of suction. This upright, lightweight design allows you to easily and quickly vacuum everything from entire rooms to curtains to stairs. Use the long-stretch hose to clean up those spilled dry cereal pieces in the couch cushions. The multi-level filtration even helps reduce allergens that could bother your little one’s sensitive nose and eyes.
Yes, children are messy, but they’re worth it, of course. I spend most of my day cleaning up after my son, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
The biggest cleaning tip I would share with new or expecting first-time parents is to clean a little as you go. You probably won’t get to everything in one day, but clean as messes happen, then prioritize and schedule the bigger jobs. Kids make messes, but they’re just experimenting and learning. It goes with the territory! Check out these cleaning tips by BISSELL.
