On Thanksgiving day, I found myself taking a small break between cleaning my entire house and both sides of our family arriving for dinner. As I sat on the couch with my feet up, I realized that I had just used THREE Shark cleaning products, all in one day, to prepare my house for the crowd that would be arriving soon.

When I went to New York this fall for the Ninja release, they also sent me home with a wonderful array of Shark Cleaning products to try out. I was excited, but I figured that I already had a house full of cleaning products, so I wasn’t sure if I would use them all or not.

It was on Thanksgiving day that I realized that these products had most definitely entered my world, and had made it much easier to prepare for my guests.

The Shark Steam Mop has completely replaced my Swiffer Wet Jet, along with my frustration with it.


I love Steam Mop because it uses no chemicals yet cleans and sanitizes, is completely safe for my hardwoods, actually CLEANS my tile (something I was starting to think was impossible), and has a long enough cord to clean my entire downstairs without having to change wall outlets.

Plus, it makes really cool steamy noises.

The Cordless StickVac has greatly improved the cleanliness of my floors because it is so quick and easy, resulting in me actually USING it, as opposed to my old, heavy, corded vacuum.


This is the lightest yet suctioniest vacuum I have ever used. I love it! I don’t have to plug it in, it takes up hardly any room in my pantry, and I can whip it out to clean up a toddler’s huge mess (I may or may not have vacuumed Radford himself that day) or quickly get the needles up from the Christmas tree.

And the Multivac is an awesome convertible tool that I typically keep in it’s handheld mode and use to continuously to vacuum up the mounds of fur that Oreo leaves behind on our furniture. Although this vacuum isn’t quite as simple as the StickVac, it’s transformer-like abilities are pretty cool. It can be a hand vac, a canister vac, or an upright vac. The suction power is awesome – it really does actually get Oreo’s hair to turn loose of our furniture, something that has always taken a TON of human effort (or, as my parents call it, “elbow grease”) in the past.

(AND it’s a whole lot cheaper than that other brand of vacuum that “Never Loses Suction” – a much smarter decision!!)

So I’ve been playing with those products and LOVING them, but I saved one product to give away to you The Portable Steamer, worth $99!!

Perhaps one of the most versatile products that Shark makes, this thing is really cool – without using any chemicals at all, it can deep clean AND sanitize your kitchen, glass surfaces, countertops, toddlers (okay, maybe not safe for use ON toddlers), and can even be used to steam your clothes!

I love Shark’s determination to revolutionize cleaning to remove all of the harmful chemicals that we have in our homes. From allergies to potential toddler hazards, we all know that they aren’t the greatest thing to have around. But with the Shark products, you really can clean – without using a single chemical!

It’s hard to believe, but it definitely works.
