I have 2 dogs, a pig, and a bunny as indoor (or at least partially indoor) pets. I also have a 6 month old that likes to throw things and spit up everywhere. And a husband who doesn't always wipe his shoes at the door (which I'm sure I am also guilty of). So yeah. Needless to say keeping my floors clean is a never ending and frustrating battle.
Or at least it was until I discovered the vacuum sent down from heaven, the Bissell Crosswave.
THIS VACUUM MOPS AND VACUUMS YOUR FLOORS AT THE SAME TIME. THE SAME TIME. Even your carpets!! It's like every time you vacuum your carpet it gets a shampoo as well. MAGIC!
The suction is good enough to pick up all the dog hair, cheerios, noodles, spit uppy messes - it does it all! You can even drop a whole egg on the floor and it will pick the whole thing up! It's magical!!
No joke - I was vacuuming while wearing my daughter the other day and she spit up aaaaalll over the floor. Like a lot. You know what I did? I just vacuumed it up. It took me like 5 seconds.
What used to take 2-3 steps I can now do in one.
It even has 2 water tanks (one for clean water, one for dirty) so that you are always using clean water on your floors instead of the icky stuff.
Now I know what you're thinking: "But Danielle! There has to be a downside!", and yes, you're right. There are 3:
1. It doesn't have a hose. This makes certain things harder and it is slightly annoying but I already had one of those handheld dust buster things so I just use that instead.
2. Cleaning the vacuum after each use is annoying. There are certain things you are supposed to clean in the vacuum (i.e. rinse out in the sink) each time you use it. This gets kind of annoying but still not to the point that it keeps me from using it and it's still overall faster.
3. The price. This vacuum brand new is $250-$280. That's a bit more than spare change for the average person. I can't promise that they will always be available this way, but I actually found mine on Ebay where Bissell sells their refurbished vacuums. I paid $129 and got free shipping! I was very pleased with the condition it came in - it looked totally brand new. It even came with a 6 month warranty.

I can't promise this link will always stay active (they might sell out), or that it will be the price I paid as I think it fluctuates, but here is where I got my refurbished one: Bissell Crosswave on Ebay
I was not paid to write this post and won't get anything from you buying one of these vacuums. Bissell has no idea I exist other than as a one time Ebay customer. Hah! I'm just a mom who fell in love with this time saving vacuum and thought I would share! Anything that makes my life easier AND saves time is a win in my book!
