Keeping Your House Clean When You Have Pets

Bissell Spot Cleaner

I grew up in a house that always had a handful of pets at any given time. My older brother had an obsession with box turtles and he kept them until I “helped” him give them a bath in the bathtub. We had 2 cats, Luv and Luv 2 (apparently, we were not that creative with names) and 2 dogs, Sean and Tuffy. We had a pretty big house, and you can imagine that it could get dirty pretty easily. Because we had hardwood floors, mom was more concerned with sweeping up fur or wiping up potty accidents when it came to the pets.  In my home, we have 2 cats, a guinea pig and the occasional visiting puppy. Did I mention we have wall to wall carpet that is a very light tan color? It shows every little spot that the pets or the kids made and it is a pain the clean. I can think of so many things I would rather do than to clean my dirty carpets. With the SpotClean from Bissell, I can clean my carpet stains quickly and easily and get back to the things I enjoy.

Keeping Your House Clean With Pets

Keeping Your House Clean When You Have Pets

Now the kids back in school and everyone getting back into the routine of all that goes with it. Caitlin started high school this year and we are still home schooling Henry who is in the 5th grade. We are now at a place where most of our family time is spent at the evening meal and on the weekends. Because time is so precious, I do not want household chores to get in the way of enjoying the things I love to do with my family. We love to grill out, especially at this time of year when it is cooler and we can eat outside on the deck. Once dinner is over, it is a blur of homework bring done, baths being taken and signing notes, permission slips and packing lunches. If you are interested in keeping your house clean when you have pets and get back your family time, the SpotClean from Bissell is perfect for you. I knew I would not need to wait long before I had an opportunity to test out my new SpotClean from Bissell. This super easy to use and portable carpet cleaner cleans touch stains from your carpet in a few minutes. As you can see, I had a pretty decent stain that Meep left me to clean. I did not even pre-treat the spot, I just used the Bissell cleaning solution that was included in the box and the spot came right up! I was completely amazed! All you do is fill the one reservoir with the cleaning solution and water, turn the machine on and slowly go over the stain. It is AMAZING!

Currently, Bissell is hosting a fun giveaway on their Facebook page called “Hello Life, Goodbye Stains Celebration”. All you need to do is visit the Bissell FB page, upload a photo of what you would rather say “hello” to, add a caption, fill out the short form and cross your fingers.
