Win a Stick and Handheld Vacuum!


This week we’ve been busy, busy moving furniture to make way for our new pet kitchen. Every time–and I mean EVERY time–we move furniture in this house, I’m shocked by the dust…and pet fur…that has made its way behind and beneath the furniture. Regardless of how clean the floor in front of the furniture was, behind the furniture were the tumbleweeds of a pet home.

Screen Shot 2016-05-06 at 4.40.02 PMWe’ve been reaching for every vacuum in our house as we’ve moved furniture this week–so I wanted to self-host a giveaway this week for a Eureka AirSpeed 2-in-1 Stick and Handheld Vacuum. This vacuum features:

  • AirSpeed Technology
  • 2-in-1 stick and handheld
  • Washable filter
  • Low profile nozzle
  • On-board crevice tool

One reader will win a vacuum of their own!

    Dirt and dust are the biggest offenders. My dog doesn’t shed so loose fur is minimal.

    Dust of course but there is lot of dog and cat hair hanging out around here.

  • Dog hair and the dirt they drag in from outside.

  • Dog and cat hair are a problem, but litter box tracking is the worst.

    My dogs love being outside, and when they come back in they drag mud and dirt into the house, and to wherever they walk/jump into. I am also living in an air polluted neighborhood and we get this black small particles landing on everything inside the house once the windows are open.

    With 3 rescued babies, fur is a absolutely my biggest challenge!


    Loose fur. I have two fawn Pugs. Fawn Pugs are double coated so they shed double amounts. Their loose fur is very visible especially the beds, the sofas are a cream color so the loose fur is only visible when you happen to sit down.

  • sherry butcher

    My biggest challenge is my Dog, Blackie and the light beige caparts.

  • Pamela McCandless

    What irony, today as I was vacuuming the cat tree with an upright vacuum, I was wishing for a lightweight handheld vacuum to do the job. With my RA using the upright is extremely difficult at 6’9″, even with a stool.
    Wow, what a dream!
