Day 11 2015. A Few of My New Favorite Things

 I have a new best friend. She's 
My new Hoover floor mate.
For 140.00 she cleans my hardwood floors and she puts down the soapy water and sucks it back up.  She dries the floor too!!!
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love her. 
I was a hands and knees kind of floor girl with old towels and missed spots.  
No more! 
This baby is amazing. 
I figure if I use her twice I've made up the cost.  Maids cost about 80 dollars a crack around here. Not that I use a maid anymore, but for comparison sake...
I love her so much I may buy another incase they stop making them. 
I cannot tell you how filthy the water was after she sucked it up. 
We have almost no carpeting in the house.
My new girlfriend does the tile and the wood floors equally well. 
I'm gushing I know.
I may have to go to the closet and just pat her a bit later....

 At the yarn shop yesterday someone was using this pill tool for her sweater. 
WOwza it really worked.  Her old pilling sweater looked like new when she finished. 
For the fun of it, since someone asked, here are my facts:

I smiled at your new girlfriend. When we moved to Arizona 2-1/2 years ago, where our new home had only tile floors (except for the bedrooms), I tried every motorized cleaner I could think of and still had streaks on the floor. I'm too old to get on my knees and clean, so I have a nice group of ladies who come in every 4 weeks and clean my floors, and they do a great job.

Your Hoover is fantastic. I need one. I do the "on my knees with an old towel" thing because mops just don't do the job.
My new favorite thing is my Shark hand held vac. It does the furniture like crazy. No more cat hair on my butt.

Love your new girlfriend - no hands and knees here, just a Swifter Wet Jet that I love.

No Instagram or Twitter. My blog is the only "social" media that I use regularly.

I love how you gush over your hoover! We have hardwood (beat-up) floors and they need more TLC than I can truly give. I like anything that makes things clean, with ease! I only Instagram besides the blog. I like it! I'm following you now!
