Help Keep Your House Clean with the New Bissell Crosswave

Bissell Crosswave

Mom’s and Dad’s this one is for you and I am going to blow your mind right now!!! What if I told you there was a new vacuum on the market that could mop your floors while at the same time picking up the schmutz (Yiddish for dirt) at the same time???

Bissell reached out to me before the Holidays to introduce me to their new Crosswave Wet and Dry Multi-Surface Cleaner and offered me to test it. I figured, what-the-hell, I am constantly sweeping my floors why not give it a shot. Now I have to tell you, this is no ordinary vacuum product, this is the creme-de-la-creme.

First, let me tell you it does not come assembled. That being said, it is so easy to set up. It took about 5 minutes to put together with reading the directions. Next, it comes with a sample bottle of the cleaning solution which you pour into the vacuum bottle (this is fool proof because it shows you with markings how much water to put in and how much of the liquid solution you put in). Last, plug it in and away you go.

So a few things I want to note: as you saw above, you need to plug it in. I mean, it’s definitely not the end of the world considering I have plugs EVERYWHERE in my house, but I know there is a preference for wireless. The silver lining, you don’t have to worry about a dead battery ūüôā The second thing I wanted to note was that it is not very light. Not that you are lifting it, but for those who hang their vacuum’s in a broom closet, this is not going to be one of those. The silver lining, I don’t second guess the quality of the product.

Now that is out of the way, I quite liked cleaning with the Crosswave.

What I liked about the Bissell Crosswave

  • There is a trigger to use when you want to use the wet portion and there are two buttons on the top to put the vacuum on carpet cleaning mode or hardwood floor mode
  • The head of the vacuum maneuvers quite nicely with it’s swivel steering
  • I put it to the test with rice that was all over my floor and normally vacuums can’t pick it up, but with the wet wash, we had no problems
  • It keeps dirty water separate from the clean water with it’s two tank system
  • Spilt milk? No problem!!!!
  • You can purchase it direct on their website and FREE shipping
  • It has a hook on the back for easy cord storage

A Mommy Must-Have – Bouche Baby Take N Shake Bottles

Bouche Baby

Some of the absolute best baby/toddler products on the market are mom created and this product that I recently tested out is one of those on my favorite list. It truly was created to make our lives that much easier while we are running around to playdates, doing errands .. the mom on the go (which I always am).

This is a brand new product to hit the market and is a baby to toddler feeding system. For baby (formula fed or not), just fill it, take it and shake it and when a toddler, add the arms and it becomes a sippy cup.

I am new to the world of powdered formula (my first born refused to drink it) and packing it to go in a baggie and then getting it into the bottle was quite the challenge (yes I put the formula in a baggie – what do you want from me, i’m sleep deprived LOL) and then was told there were containers to store the formula in which is great in all but they are bulky! Don’t get me wrong I love the idea of the compartment container, but then came this product!!!!!!

Here’s how it works: Add pre-measured formula to the bottom compartment, attach the sieve, add water into the bottle, seal, and go. When you‚Äôre ready to feed your baby, simply unscrew, flip (dont forget this step .. trust me), shake, and serve.¬†The specially designed sieve ensures no formula clumps. It took me a few minutes to figure it out, but once I got it, I was as good as golden. I recommend checking out the ‘How To’ video below which shows you a great demonstration:

The best part of the bottle is that it is designed to start with the baby and go through to the toddler years as it easily¬†converts to a standard bottle¬†when formula is no longer required and then can be used as a¬†sippy cup when you no longer want to use bottles. If this becomes your child’s favorite bottle, they will get to keep it through all their transitions and perhaps it will help with those transitions since we all know those transitions are not the easiest. The bottle is fun with bright colours and fun measurements and definitely attracts as the last few times I have been out with it, I have been asked what bottle I am using.
