I have a dirty little secret. It’s shameful. It’s embarrassing. But you are my friends, and I know you won’t judge me too harshly. Maybe, perhaps, my confession will help someone else someday feel like they aren’t alone in this world. That someone else shares their pain. So, taking a deep breath, here it goes:

I have a bowling ball problem in my home.

My old vacuum just wasn’t helping me with the overwhelming number of bowling balls. It was scaring the hell out of Charlie, too. At best, it would suck up only one stinking bowling ball at a time. And it was worse when it came to my laminate; with a typical vacuum, you just can’t get the same suction power when you transition from carpet to hard floors.

But thanks to Oreck, my nightmare is over. Bowling balls are no match for the VersaVac. See what I mean by watching this TV commercial.

Oh yeah, one more thing:  I’M FREAKING IN IT, you guys. And I’m going to share the entire experience with you all soon!
P.S. I am still pinching myself. And check out those other bloggers in the commercial too – I have met many of them in person, and they are truly awesome people! Shanty2Chic, All Things G&D, Miss Mustard Seed, Veronica Armstrong
P.P.S. Thank you to Merrypad for inspiration for this ridiculous post.

  1. I'm so glad it worked for you, and yay for being in the commercial! I wouldn't have watched it if you hadn't said that, because I had terrible long-term experiences with my Orecks. I'll never buy another one, ever, but the commercials do make them look great. And yay for getting to test it on your dog hair!

  2. That's so awesome!!!! I am a Kirby owner, and I love it as I have all kinds of flooring in this tiny house of mine (hardwood, carpet, vinyl, cement) but have really been wanting a steam mop for the hardwood instead of hand cleaning it (Fish Foam works awesome but hard on the old knees). This looks like one awesome machine!
