How Do You REACT?

How do you react to the dust and dirt in your house or car?  If you are like me, you probably think yuck and like to get the messes cleaned up as soon as possible.  Do you have the latest and greatest in vacuum cleaners?  How about cordless?  These are great and I think they save a lot of time and effort when it comes to cleaning up messes.  Have you seen or heard of Hoover REACT Whole Home Advantage Cordless Vacuum?  This vacuum is perfect for the really big jobs and the small ones as well.

Hoover generously sent me a REACT Whole Home Advantage Cordless Vacuum for the purpose of this review.  The views on this product are mine and mine alone and I was not influenced in any way.

I can tell you I was real excited to get a cordless vacuum cleaner.  I don’t know how many times I have run over cords and always been a bit short of reaching the last area that needed to be vacuumed because of the length of the cord on the vacuum.  With the Hoover REACT Whole Home Advantage Cordless Vacuum I don’t have to worry about having enough cord to get the job done because of it being cordless.

I know you are probably thinking because of it being cordless it doesn’t have any power but quite the contrary it has all the power you need and the length of time the battery stays charged, you can get all your vacuuming done and still have power left over.  I always charge mine after I am done so it has a full charge for the next time I need to use the Hoover REACT Whole Home Advantage Cordless Vacuum.  Hoover says the battery life will last 30-min. in hand vacuum mode and 21-min. at full power on carpet.  I think mine lasted longer because I used it both ways.

The Hoover REACT Whole Home Advantage Cordless Vacuum has FloorSense technology.  By that it means it knows what kind of floor it is cleaning, from bare floors to carpet.  The vacuum has WindTunnel Surge technology that offers powerful suction.  The Pivoting head of the vacuum helps you to maneuver the vacuum in any direction for quick pickup of debris.  Also, you can use the vacuum for quick above floor cleaning with the removable hand held cleaning tools such as a crevice tool, dusting brush and an upholstery tool that helps to clean every nook and cranny of your home. Hoover offers a 3-year limited warranty which is better than most.

You can purchase the Hoover REACT Whole Home Advantage Cordless Vacuum at Walmart, Amazon and other vacuum cleaner stores.  Check out Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube, and Instagram.

How do you react to the dust and dirt in your house or car?  If you are like me, you probably think yuck and like to get the messes cleaned up as soon as possible.  The Hoover REACT Whole Home Advantage Cordless Vacuum is perfect for the really big jobs and the small ones as well.  I know once you have used this vacuum, you will never go back to the old corded style because you will be able to get your vacuuming jobs done quicker and easier using the Hoover REACT.

Make Life Easier with Rogue at Black Friday Pricing

As time goes by, year after year, it seems our lives get busier and busier which means what used to be a simple task, now takes more time than we have to devote to the chore.  The chore I am referring to is cleaning the floors in your home.  First there was the broom which helped to sweep out all the dirt and grime from the floors, then the vacuum was invented which was an improvement over the broom, but you still had to manually move the vacuum over the floors from room to room to remove the dirt and dust.  Let me introduce you to the newest and greatest technology to cleaning your floors.  “Hello. My name is Rogue™ and I’m here to make your life easier. I’m not just (a) robot, I’m a smart vacuum that comes fully loaded with the latest and greatest tech. I have some pretty impressive features that really set me apart from those other robots. I have Robart® Mapping Technology with Memory, meaning I intelligently navigate and remember your floorplan instead of just randomly bumping around. I also have SmartWall™ Technology which allows you to mark rooms or areas as off limits to me through the Hoover Home App. Who else can brag about that? With other outstanding features like voice control, Wi-Fi connectivity, dirt detection and user indicator lights, I’m pretty much the whole package”.

Special thanks to TTIFloorCare.com for generously supplying the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum for the purpose of this review.

OK, Ladies, Who, likes to vacuum your floors?  Sure, I love clean floors but a lot of the time I just can’t fit that job into my schedule of other things that need to be done like cooking meals for my family.  Not to say that I couldn’t vacuum the floors late at night after everyone has gone to bed but that is not a very practical time to preform that job.   Instead, why not let the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum do the job for you.  It can run late at night and not disturb anyone in the house except maybe the cat, if you have one.

Let me tell you a little bit about the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum and what a great product it is.  First of all, let me start by telling you that Hoover Vacuum has been in business for over 100 years.  That is a long time for a company to be in business which means that the company and its products are top notch quality goods.  My grandmother’s first vacuum was a Hoover and I remember playing with it.  I know, silly me, not knowing that years down the road I would actually have to complete that duty for my own home.  But at the time it seemed like fun and I was helping Grandmother.

Here are some of the great features I know you will love.  The Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum uses a high-tech laser to navigate around the house and it remembers the floorplan using Memory Navigation.   If you have specific areas like down stairways that the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum can’t clean, there is Cliff Sensors and the SmartWall Technology that creates virtual boundaries using the Hoover Home App where you can customize areas that are off limits.

Now how cool is this?  Voice Control, Yup, you can command the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum to start cleaning using Amazon Alexa and Google Home Assistant.  Using this feature before bedtime or before you get home would save hours and your floors would be in great condition when you woke up or got home from work.  Everything these days seems to be Wi-Fi connected and the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum is no exception.  When you use the Hoover Home App you can program the Rogue Robot 970 to begin its job at certain times of the day or week.

How would you feel if you had a smart vacuum?  By that I mean, the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum operates trifecta agitation, brushing and suction to pick up dirt, dust and pet hair and if there is an area that has larger amounts of the yucky stuff, the vacuum slows down to make sure it picks up the junk.  Run time is up to 120 minutes and when his or her job is complete she will ramble back to her docking station and auto-dock, so she is ready for the next time she will be needed.

The Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum has a full 1-year limited warranty, docking station, 14.4 volt lithium ion battery which only takes 3 hours to completely charge and a cleaning tool.

Now for the exciting part!  Ever heard of BLACK FRIDAY SPECIALS?  Well, Hoover is running a Black Friday Special where you will receive $200.00 off the suggested retail price.  The extraordinary deal is available at Target, Best Buy, Amazon and Hoover.com from November 22, 2017 until December 3, 2017.  Since most Black Friday deals only last one day, Hoover decided to spread the savings out a bit longer giving everyone a chance to collect on this great deal.

Make sure you put the Hoover Rogue 970 Robot Vacuum on your wish list for the holiday season this year and clean up both dirt wise and money wise.  Then celebrate during the new year having your floors cleaned with the most expert technology and state of the art vacuum available on the market today.

GE Profile Series Ranges

Best Buy wants you to be aware of the GE Appliances that are designed to duplicate a modern approach to style and streamlined look for today’s kitchens.  Even your daily routines will become amazingly simple with the next generation features of GE Appliances.  Best Buy has compensated me in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or I received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

You know there are several manufactures of appliances on the market today.  Some are new to making appliances and then there are some companies like GE that are one of the most reliable and well-established appliance manufactures around.  Most of us sometime in our lifetime have had a GE Appliance or know of someone who has, like your Grandmother or Mother.  It is a company that is completely reliable and stand by their products year after year.

One of the best features of the GE Profile Series Gas Range is the edge-to-edge cook surface which allows you to use those larger pans and enables the pans to be moved from burner to burner with little or no effort and the 20,000 BTU tri-ring burner produces rapid boiling and gentle simmering.

This is a favorite feature of mine because I have several large pans especially if I am canning vegetables and making jellies.  Some ranges don’t have large enough heating surface to accommodate the larger pans so the process of cooking or canning is hindered tremendously ruining the food.  Another great feature of the GE Profile Series Gas Range is the extra-large reversible cast iron grill/griddle.  You can cook as many as 6 grilled cheeses at one time and if it is steak you are wanting, flip the griddle over and use it as a grill.  Perfect for those cold, snowy days instead of going outside.  Check out GE Profile Series Ranges at Best Buy.   The Profile Series comes in a variety of styles with features like gas and electric with double ovens or single oven with warming drawers and these appliances will make your cooking experience easier than slicing bread.

GE Appliances have outdone themselves with the newest in refrigeration by offering the convenience of Keurig Kcup French Door hot single serve brewing right in your refrigerator door.  Wow, what an ingenious idea keeping your counter space open for more important things.  I have a Kcup coffee maker on my counter-top and it does take up a lot of space that I could use for other things like just making room to set dishes down whenever I need too plus your kitchen looks much cleaner when the counter-top is free of clutter.
