UPDATED: Bethany, comment #366, has been chosen as the winner. Congrats!
I sort of have this thing about clean floors.
And when the days of my life (and work) get chaotic and feel out of control, I take it out on my floors.
Yes, I’m a compulsive sweeper slash vacuum cleaner user.
I may have Mount St. Laundry in the background and 429 things on my to do list, but I always start with my floors. It makes me feel better.
You’d think with this
compulsion gift, I’d have a really top dollar vacuum cleaner. No. We usually just replace our cheap, worn-out one with a mediocre one every year or two.
Y’all: my floor cleaning dreams have come true. When Oreck asked if they could send me their newly released Magnesium (top of the line vacuum) to try and keep, I might have cried a little. I might have also spread dirt on the floor in eager anticipation. Oh wait, I have a hubby, three kids, a dog, cat, two half-alive hamsters and a fruit fly infestation, I don’t have to add “make house dirty” to my list.
I was grocery shopping when the Oreck Magnesium arrived. My hubby took it out of the box, assembled it in a few seconds and put it next to the Christmas tree. I think that’s called Brownie Points.
!!!!!! I call it love.
I might never stop vacuuming.
Here are my favorite things about the Oreck Magnesium Vacuum:
- It’s incredibly light-weight (a very good thing for my neck).
- It’s feels like it’s self-propelled. Seriously.
- It sweeps up floors and carpet with two speeds.
- It’s small, sleek and sexy. (Yes, I used the “s” word).
- The swivel head reaches the small village of dust bunnies that live behind furniture.
- The cord is really long and I only have to unplug once on both floors of my house.
- And probably my favorite part?? It’s so easy to use, even a child can do it. And does [insert evil laugh here].
And the best part? Oreck is giving their amazing Magnesium Vacuum to one lucky reader today! Value: $499.99
Introducing the lightest, full-powered upright in America. With its extremely strong, durable magnesium frame, the Magnesium™ packs all the power you expect from an Oreck vacuum — so much power it feels like it’s self-propelled on most surfaces. The two speed Quickswitch™ on the back of the vacuum enables you to move smoothly across all floor types using appropriate power levels: high for carpets and low for hardwoods and tile. It’s even gentle enough for fine Oriental and Persian rugs. Additionally, the large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings give the Magnesium maneuverability, making it easy to push through high-pile carpet. Best of all, it lays virtually flat for easy cleaning under furniture.
