Yes, you read that correctly–The Peaceful Mom is hosting an Oreck Vacuum Cleaner Give Away!
Our family has a long, miserable history with vacuum cleaners. Being on a budget, we naturally bought the cheapest vacuum cleaners we could find, but those usually broke within a year or lost their ability to actually suck up the dirt. As each vacuum died, we would purchase another cheap vacuum and repeat the cycle.
Finally two years ago we did some research and purchased a vacuum cleaner in the $130 range. We were happy with it, but again, it lost is suction power and started to emit a slight burning smell. The repairs on the vacuum would be more than the cost of a new one, but we didn’t have extra money to purchase a new vacuum cleaner.
Oreck to the rescue! A few weeks ago the Oreck company graciously sent me one of their new Oreck Magnesium vacuum cleaners to try. I really enjoyed using it, and I especially like three features of this vacuum:
It’s light weight.
When I received the package I assumed it would be heavy like my other vacuums, so I had my son bring it in. HELLO! This vacuum is SUPER light weight and therefore super easy to use.
Not only is the Magnesium light weight, it’s compact enough to fit easily into our tiny hall closet. Even if you have a large closet, who wants the vacuum cleaner to take up unnecessary space?
It has an extra long cord.
I hate having to unplug and replug the vacuum every time I move to another room. With the Magnesium, problem solved. I can actually vacuum mulitple rooms without ever moving the plug.
In addition to these great features, the sporty design actually makes me want to vacuum, and believe me, that is quite the accomplishment! It works well on both our tile and our carpet and has amazing suction. It also lies flat so that you can vacuum under furniture without moving it.
The Magnesium vacuum is a bit pricey and I would consider it out of our budget range, but if you have the money and want a really good vacuum, I think you will like it.
Oreck also sent me their Ultimate Hand Vac to try. It’s also super lightweight and perfect for vacuuming out the car or cleaning under those sofa cushions (even if it’s only once a year! 🙂 ).
The Hand Vac comes with all of these attachments too!
