Back to Being Healthy Cleaning with Hoover, Lysol & Scrubbing Bubbles

By 1/21/2013 11:39:00 AM ,

Since before Christmas, my son and I have been dealing with one sickness after another. From Scarlet fever to the semi flu, not to mention various kinds of colds and coughs in between.

But thankfully with lots of rest and various natural medicines and remedies, we're back to being healthy (relatively speaking).


Please Note: 
  • As a Hoover/Dirt Devil Insider Ambassador, I received the TwinTank Steam Mop sample for review purpose. 
  • I received the LYSOL Power Free and Scrubbing Bubbles Total Kitchen products for review purposes.  
  • Views expressed are always 100% my own.

Now that we're feeling "healthy", I decided that this weekend was the time to deep and seriously clean the apartment and get rid of any lingering germs. I armed myself with the latest cleaning devices and products (thanks to my blogger & brand connections) and declared war on any germs and bacteria in my apartment.

Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop

In my apartment I have two different types of floors, a faux wood in the living room and bedroom and ceramic tiles in the bathroom and kitchen. Using my Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop was great since it was safe for both types of services.

I could clean my floors using the steam alone option or click over and use the SteamPlus Cleaning Solution, which is also safe since it's a 100% biodegradable formula.

Putting together and using the Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop was really easy and fast. The parts fit together well, so after a quick read over of the instructions, you can figure things out. It's also pretty lightweight and easy to control. The controls are within easy reach and the 30 foot power cord allows you to clean no matter the distance.

I was able to clean both my living and kitchen floor thoroughly and the triangular swivel mop head fit nicely into tight corners and other hard to reach areas.

The next area to receive a through cleaning was the kitchen area. For this I used Scrubbing Bubbles® Total Kitchen Foaming All Purpose Cleaner with fantastik. and the Scrubbing Bubbles® All Purpose Cleaner with fantastik  which claims to kills 99.9 percent of germs and bacteria so I used it to wipe down the kitchen counter tops and other surfaces.

The Scrubbing Bubbles® Total Kitchen Foaming All Purpose Cleaner with fantastik I used on surfaces that not only needed cleaning but also grime removal like my kitchen sink. I really like that the foam clings to surfaces to break down grease and grime. My sink really was clean and shiny and the kitchen area smelt great.

The last area was the big area. The bathroom! Bathrooms in general always need cleaning but during our sick days we spent quite a bit of time in the bathroom for various reason.

I'll spare you the details but lets just say our bathroom REALLY needed to be clean. While I wanted our bathroom as clean as possible, I didn't want to pass out from bleachy or other strong fumes.

LYSOL Power & Free Bathroom Cleaner

I was excited to try out the Lysol® Power & Free products line since it's cleaning formula uses Hydrogen Peroxide so it doesn't have the harshness found in bleach. I was able to wipe down the bathroom sink using the Lysol® Power & Free Bathroom Wipes. They are very strong and really picks up dirt, hair, etc well.

LYSOL® Power & Free™ Toilet Bowl Cleaner

For my tub fixtures and tile walls I sprayed the LYSOL® Power & Free™ Bathroom Cleaner and then washed off for a nice clean finish. I really like this for my bathroom tiles. No hard scrubbing!

Lastly I used the LYSOL® Power & Free™ Toilet Bowl Cleaner for the toilet bowl. I like that it had a spout with a curved nozzle to really get under the toilet rim. The liquid gives off a nice clean scent as it penetrates whatever is stuck inside the toilet.

After all that cleaning, my apartment smelt great and I felt so good! My apartment was germ free. My son and I could enjoy being healthy for the next few weeks!

Hopefully we'll stay this way till the end of the cold and flu season thanks to our supply of cleaning products.
