I just have to share my favorite new gadget with you….and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it is a Roomba…yes, the robot vacuum cleaner. My husband (he’s a ) had gone to a client’s home and spotted this round disc-like thing on the floor. The lady of the house explained to him that it was her Roomba and proceeded to show him how it works….Being a “gadget” man, he came home and told me all about it….Well, we have a perfectly good vacuum cleaner – I really didn’t see the need for another one, plus I have a cleaning lady who comes every other week….I mean, for the cost of the Roomba, I could fill my gas tank 5 more times!!!
Well, Wayne (my husband) insisted that we get one and try it out. I ended up paying $280.00 after using a Linens ‘N Things coupon ( you can get one at Costco for the same price without coupon)….SO WORTH IT.
What has been the best thing about my Roomba? Well, for starters…no more fur-balls in the corners. We have a Pug, and if you don’t know, Pugs are the #1 dog shedders. You would think as much hair as they lose daily, that they would be bald! Our hardwood floors always had remnants of “Bennie”…You could see exactly where he laid because of his shedding. If you have a Pug, you learn quickly to ignore dog hair…it is just becomes a way of life when you own a dog.
Here’s the best part….with the model that we purchased, the 560, you can program it to vacuum at a specific time of day, every day! Now, every night, while we lay sleeping, Roomba rhumba’s through our house, working it’s magic over our hardwoods and carpet. When we awake in the morning, I see all these vacuum cleaner marks in my carpet ( Ladies, you know what I’m talking about)….it is the most beautiful sight…freshly vacuumed carpet to wake up to….who needs Folgers?
I have a new best friend….and his name is ROOMBA!
I’d like to thank my lovely wife for letting me use this article from her blog and letting you know how to eliminate all that loose dog hair .
