Products for the Home
The BISSELL CrossWave claims to do it all by simultaneously vacuuming and washing hard floors and area rugs in one simple step. This 3-in-1 product can clean multiple floor types in one action, it has a digital touch control, a pivoting head and can move between, hard surfaces, rugs or carpet seamlessly.
The DuoClean Powered Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner from Shark combines two technologies to clean seamlessly from carpets to hard floors - this vacuum cleaner has two brush rolls working together to remove three different types of dirt from your floors and carpets, large, small and stuck on particles. There is a soft, velvet like brush roll that is directly in contact with all hard floors, removing stuck-on dirt, fine dust and large objects and when the Shark is used on carpets, the second bristle bar comes into play with the first brush roll, cleaning t
The packaging is a great indicator of the experience I was about to have with the Nutri Ninja, there is loads of information, photos and descriptions plastered all over the box making it quite busy and intimidating and when I opened the box I found loads of little boxes like Russian dolls, each with lots of complicated looking bits inside. As a kitchen system you get a lot of gear for your money, 1500 watt motor base, 500ml Nutri Ninja cup, 650ml Nutri Ninja cup, pro extractor blade assembly, two spout lids, 1.8L food processor bowl, chopping blade assembl
We have all seen the advert from that well known odour neutraliser spray…we will call it Fab-knees…and they have given us house proud types something else to worry about, the idea that you are so used to living in the stench of your own filth that you can’t smell it anymore, there you are believing your house smells like a bed of roses when you house guests are choking back the urge to vomit over the smell of locker room with a hint of cat litter trays, altogether a clever bit of advertising.
Sometimes, something comes along that makes you wonder why it hasn’t been done before, I know it might not be up there with real world problems, but equally changing the bed becomes an issue in our house because neither of us want to take on the challenge or battling with the sheets.

Cleaning the hard floors in our home is up there with ironing and weeding on the list of things we don’t want to do in our free time. It is often decided with a game of rock, paper, scissors. However, the moment we have a new gadget to help with a tedious chore, we end up battling over who gets to try it out first.
Along with the awesome dancing skills, the excellent decision making and the sharp banter that lives inside your favourite bottle of wine, there are also sulphites lurking away. These can be naturally occurring or artificial chemicals that are added to the wine to preserve it and are no longer needed once the bottle is opened.
When you have two cats that seem to shed the fur like it offends them, insist on kicking their cat litter around the house like they are redecorating for you, and a partner who doesn’t understand the point of using plates to catch crumbs when the floor works just as well - you will be reaching the vacuum cleaner more than any other appliance. We have a vacuum that I will refer to as a Harry hoover, which works very well but it is such a lump to get out of the cupboard, bangs off the walls as I drag it around and is such a health and safety nightmare on the
