My New Favorite Way To Clean The House


The following post is sponsored by BISSELL Homecare, Inc. Do your kids love to do arts and crafts projects? Mine do, and while I never, ever want to squash their creativity – sometimes I get a little tired of cleaning up the mess!


The absolute worst is when my daughter uses glitter and glue. It gets EVERYWHERE, and it’s impossible to clean up. It turns into a whole big process. First, I try to sweep up the glitter, but it always gets stuck to the floor. Then, I use the sponge, but it just pushes the tiny pieces around. And with kids and pets running back and forth, before you know it, there’s glitter all over the house!

I almost instituted a “No Glitter” rule, but she has so much fun making her crafts and my heart melts every time she gives me a special card or picture.

That’s why I was so excited to try the Symphony™ All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop from BISSELL. It’s a combo cleaning tool that vacuums and steams hard-surface floors in one quick step, so I’m not trying to juggle a broom, dustpan, sponge and bucket.

It was great! First of all, it was super easy to use. I just plugged it in, filled up the tank with some water and we were ready to go. The vacuum gobbled up all the little scraps of paper and glitter from the floor and the steam mop got the tough sticky stuff.

I cleaned up my budding artist’s mess in half the time! And best of all, I knew the floors were sanitized from whatever my dog and cat probably tracked in.

With kids and pets, I’m always looking for better ways to keep my house clean – without spending hours scrubbing and polishing – and this definitely did the trick!
