***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED***
When I went to Haven, Oreck was a sponsor and had a booth there. I was looking forward to meeting with them because my mom has been a huge Oreck fan for YEARS. Her old Oreck is still going strong after I don’t even know how long.
I got home from Haven and found out that I had won an Oreck Magnesuim vacuum cleaner!!!!!!
If you would have told me when I was a teenager, or even in college, that I would get THIS excited over a vacuum I would have laughed my rear end off. But A) I am a clean freak now and B) I have been using a shop vac as a vacuum for over a year now. Yes, a shop vac. I have been trying to vacuum my whole house with the attachment on my shop vac. And it sucks (pardon the pun :P).
How sexy is this vacuum???
You heard me. Sexy. This ain’t my momma’s vacuum :)
Have you ever seem such a cool design for a vacuum?
Well, it is not all about looks……
This vacuum is the lightest, full powered upright in America. I told my husband that and he said “So, why would that matter.” Clearly he was not impressed with my infomercial-ish introduction I gave him the second he walked in the door from work.
But as soon as he tried it he was sold. He was impressed with how it felt as he vacuumed. And guess what else…..
Dude. This vacuum lays FLAT. It can go under your furniture in a way no other vacuum ever has.
My one concern with this vacuum was that it does not have any attachments. With all the other vacuums I have owned I use the hose a lot to clean along the baseboards.
I swear my kids walk along the edge of the room every time they eat fishy crackers. How else do all those crumbs get there???
Anyway, I was VERY surprised and impressed that it managed to get the crumbs along the baseboards. I don’t know if it is because of the design or the powerful suction, or both. But I did not have to get out my handheld to do the baseboards. I am sure that every now and then I will want to use a hose when I am deep cleaning. But for everyday vacuuming it did wonderful.
I am happy to say that I get to giveaway an Oreck Magnesium vacuum!!! That is a $500.00 value!
