Spring unofficially marks the start of cleaning season as people across the country will tidy up their nests and celebrate the incoming warm weather. Though it’s late, it appears that spring has finally arrived in the Midwest, so we need to be sure that our vehicles are prepared to adjust to the changing weather and conditions.
Five years ago, right after my wife and I bought this house and moved in, I took to the outside with a spray bottle of outdoor cleaner to attack the siding and deck. Not only did it not work very well, but shortly afterward I discovered that I'd completely ruined a brand new t-shirt and shorts. The reason? Overspray from chlorine bleach, which I'd neglected to notice was the primary ingredient. Not cool. With evolving landscape and gardening projects, we're always looking for new and safe ways to do things, and that's why Scotts® Plus OxiClean™ Outdoor Cleaner was immediately intriguing - the ability to get the house, deck and all of the girls' Step2 play equipment nice and clean without harming our plants. Plus, it's from Scotts - a trusted brand whose products I use regularly here at Rock Father HQ.
As a work-at-home Dad with two girls, two dogs, and limited time, I'm always working to keep things clean. In fact, you could say I'm a little OCD about it, and I'm vacuuming pretty often. That said, when the folks at Eureka asked if I'd be willing to take their new Eureka AirSpeed ALL FLOORS Vacuum for a spin, I took them up on the offer - especially when they told me that independent testing shows that it "cleans carpets better that the Dyson DC41." You see, I have a Dyson... so I was interested in seeing how it stacks up against the competition.
And now it's time to take a break from our regularly-scheduled entertainment coverage to discuss something of great importance to me: keeping the house clean. I work from home, and it's always a challenge to keep Rock Father HQ looking it's best, and to assist, the folks at Eureka recently sent me one of their new Eureka AirSpeed ALL FLOORS Vacuums (available Exclusively at Walmart) to test out. While the official results from my state-of-the-art product testing facility are forthcoming, THE ROCK FATHER and Eureka are teaming up to give YOU a chance to bring some of that #EurekaPower home. Not one, but TWO lucky readers will received one of these new machines. Let's rock.
I've officially entered "Spring Cleaning" mode here at Rock Father HQ, and that means that beyond my daily routine, I'm also starting to deep clean the things that don't get regular attention, and I'm trying out some new products. As a work-at-home Dad, my days are largely occupied by the kids. Things can get messy, and since much of the cleaning falls under my direction, I'm always on the lookout for less-toxic options where available. When the folks at New Jersey-based Native Organics asked me to to try out some of their new products, I was certainly interested in giving them a shot.
