Hoover FloorMate

Hoover FloorMate. What a concept! A vacuum and mop in one. I’ve owned my FloorMate for 2 years now and I just love this thing. I have two dogs that track red clay mud in and out of the house constantly. And talk about the hair. Dog hair everywhere and the genius that built this house put white linoleum in the kitchen. The FloorMate allows me to vacuum and mop at the same time. I just vacuum up all the dirt and hair then push the little button and start spraying away. The little scrubbers on the front get that red clay dingy dirt up in one to two passes. No more bending to scrub the floors. Or soapy water mess with mopping. This thing also cleans up spills in no time flat. The FloorMate works not only in my kitchen but all through the livingroom and hallway that has wood laminate flooring and I don’t have to worry about the flooring buckling due to using too much water because the FloorMate sucks it up as it cleans and dries your floors very quickly. I highly recommend this for anyone who has a busy life and high traffic areas and wants to clean them quickly.

Wondershare Flash Gallery Factory

Is this not the cutest thing ever? My vacation all wrapped up in a pretty bow. This wonderful production was made with some easy peasy clicks of the mouse. It took less than 10 minutes to add my pictures, pick a template, add text and publish. This wonderful product was made with Wondershare Flash Gallery Factory, a great product that not only makes slideshows in a few simple clicks, it also makes great galleries for your website. Not only does it do all that but you can make your wonderful productions into screensavers for your computer. What more could a geek like me ask for? This program was also pretty cheap at only $49.95. This program is so easy to use. I hate programs that have such a high learning curve that an hour later you’re still trying to figure out how to add sound or an effect. This program made it so simple to plop in photos, add sound or pick from the many transition effects or templates already loaded. Not only is this great for personal photo albums but would make a great business gallery. It even has 3D gallery effects. Sit back and enjoy my vacation montage.

Febreze Takes My Smell Away

I bought this stuff the other day hoping it would alleviate the stench that two grown dogs in 100+ degree weather brings to your home. I don’t really like original Febreze smell, I preferred the spray that Downy came out with for fabrics. It had a nice soft Downy smell to it and made everything smell like it just came out of the dryer. Unfortunately, I could not find Downy’s fabric freshener at the store any longer so decided to give Febreze one more go. I purchased the three pack of the home d├ęcor selection. These sprays were different from the bulky blue bottle I’ve used in the past and I was so surprised at the new smells they had come up with. My favorite is the Lavender & Vanilla scent but all of them are wonderful and not too overpowering. They got the job done and instead of smelling sweaty dog when I come through the door, I now smell a fresh field of Lavender & Vanilla. I use this all the time now. It’s a great product. Way to go Febreze!


This is my new little space on the web that I thought I’d share. It’s hopefully going to be a product review/giveaway kind of place where I display how much of a sellout good reviewer I can be. Anything that may catch my eye will go here. Enjoy!
