Hands Free Vacuuming With The Neato XV Essential + $50 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway


neato Robotics Vacuum

Spring is here and that means, for me, it’s time to clean out my house. More often than not, cleaning out has to wait because I spend quite a portion of my time cleaning up messes made by the ones I love!

Dirt Tracks

You see, I have an outdoorsman for a husband, two boys who play soccer, and a little girl who seems to carry as much dirt on her body as she possibly can. Not to mention two dogs, whom seem to track mountains of dirt in every time they go out and seem to think it’s a game shedding fur. I can honestly say, I have to vacuum daily to keep up with the messes or my carpet may become a hazard zone. It gets tiresome and to be honest, there is other cleaning, work, and fun I’d rather be doing. Thanks to the Neato XV Essential, found at Walmart,  I can now cross vacuuming off my to do list!

Neato XV Essential Vacuum

This vacuum really is like no other! With the option to be able to set any (or all) day of the week, at the time of your choosing, you can have the Neato XV Essential vacuum anytime of the day or night.

Neato Vacuum commands

The smart technology, will set it to clean at the scheduled time.  Now, if you have a bigger area that needs to be vacuumed, you will want to schedule this while you are at home, so you can empty the bin.  The bin is fairly big in size, when you look at the vacuum itself, but not as big as my ‘normal’ vacuums.    It will let you know when it needs to be emptied and charged (though that is just out of the box).  Once it starts going on it’s schedule, it will take itself back to it’s charging station, when the battery is low and then pick up where it left off.   You can set it to clean any day of the week, at your preferred time.  That way you have the option of turning off your schedule, if you aren’t going to be home to empty the bin, which is perfect for when you go on vacation.

Handfree Vacuuming

You also have the option to spot clean.  In that case it does a square area, so if you have a small mess to clean up it’s perfect!  Check out the video I made of it spot cleaning an area:

I was amazed at the amount of dirt, pet dander, and hair this picked up! Color me impressed! This year when you are spring cleaning, why not do it hands free (at least the vacuuming part) with the Neato XV Essential which can be found at Walmart!  It will give you a whole new outlook on the task.  In fact, it becomes down right fun!

    I had one of these type of vacuums years ago when they first came out. I know they have made lots of advancements since then and I would like to try one of these out again. This one looks like it would be perfect.

    Unfortunately, I keep getting an error message when I try to post the UR. I don’t know why, it’s just one URL, but I get the message that there are too many URLs in my comment. But it’s the same URL as all the other commenters–the link is to your original tweet.

    Technically you can not copy links to retweets the same way as you can your own tweets because it carries the original tweet links with it the whole time which Word press says I have too many URLS (none as far as I can see ) and won’t let me leave that one. I retweeted as @cheap4kids.
