THE PRIZE

electrolux-rapido1

Electrolux is giving away the funky green Rapido Hand Vacuum ($49.99) to one of you!

MY REVIEW

Vacuuming is not one of my favorite chores. In fact, we require all residents and visitors to remove their shoes upon entrance and we do not eat on the carpet to minimize the amount of vacuuming necessary. I dislike it that much.

And the car. Before kids, our cars used to be fairly clean, but now there are several pounds of cracker crumbs, fruit snacks, toe lint, and all sorts of other filthy and disgusting dirt particles surrounding around the car seat. And honestly, it didn’t get cleaned up all that often because it’s truly a pain to lug a whole vacuum cleaner outside in the snow to tidy things up.

electrolux-rapido2Enter the Rapido Hand Vacuum. When there’s no cord to trip over, no 50 pound piece of machinery to take outside, vacuuming isn’t too bad. I actually don’t mind vacuuming with this little beauty because it’s so easy!

Having a lightweight hand vacuum around has really helped me keep things cleaner around the house. For example, the other day I cut my son’s toenails without worrying where they went and just vacuumed that little area after. I would not have lugged my full sized vacuum cleaner up 2 flights of stairs to do that. Sad, but true.

And we’re keeping our new Cosco convertible car seat in brand new condition because I can quickly and painlessly clean up those little messes in the car as they happen.

I have used the Rapido much more than I thought I would because it is so handy and convenient. It’s not scary to my son – it sounds more like a hair dryer than a vacuum. The little wheels on the front make it glide smoothly across carpet and hard surfaces, and the dust catcher on the inside is super easy to empty. There are several attachments housed right inside the charger to accomodate any type of cleanup you might need, and the charger can stand alone or be mounted on the wall.

The whole thing is just brilliant, and for only $50 it’s reasonable too. Thanks, Electrolux!

I need to win this because I am a crafter and because I have two dogs! Between the three of us we make a MESS and it is often tiny little messes that you SO don’t want to take out the ‘big’ vacuum for! This would fit neatly in my craft room and make it easy to clean up quickly!

I need to win because I have three kids ages 3, 2 and one month old. As you can imagine, anything that helps control the mess is GOOD!

7 Jackie May 4, 2009 at 6:20 am

I need to win this because we have 4 cats and shedding season is a disaster around here! We have dark green carpet (came with the house, will get replaced as finances permit) and it shows every speck of everything! Plus the glitter, paper bit and whatnot that are on my craft room floor – this would be the perfect solution!

I need to win this because my kids love to use my punches to do crafts and this would be great to pick them up, instead of having to drag the big vacuum out each time. Plus, my birthday is on the 6th. Does that help at all? :-)
Have a great week,
Tina

15 Harley May 4, 2009 at 6:37 am

My car and my couch are such catchalls for all things crumb-y!! Plus during the summer I leave my car windows down a lot (I have to drive a good bit back and forth from home a few times a day) and my cats like to get in there and sleep!

I need to win because I leave tiny paper scraps all over the place…I make cards…and I’m not very tidy about it…and we have two cats and a dog that sheds so much, I sweep twice a day and it’s driving me CRAZY!!!

19 Jeri May 4, 2009 at 6:49 am

If you have met Bart and know his fascination with throwing Coco Puffs across the room you understand why I need this vacuum. I’ve wanted a hand-vac for ages.

This would be perfect for vaccuuming the stairs. We recently moved to VA where all the houses have stairs (which we are NOT used to), so this will help me get used to cleaning carpeted stairs.

Oooh! I really really really need this. The car fills up with crumbs and cheerios and my husband keeps the shop vac in the storage shed. Since I am pregnant with baby #3, I can’t hike out and drag it in and over all the boxes in the garage. This would be a life saver in the garage to use in the car.

28 Annalee May 4, 2009 at 7:39 am

We just moved into our first house – which is two stories – so I totally need this so I don’t have to lug my vacuum around!

29 Lindsey S. May 4, 2009 at 7:55 am

I need this because I have a new baby and anything to help me have motivations to clean is a bonus!

30 deanne May 4, 2009 at 8:06 am

This is really cool! We have a chinchilla that my daughter cleans up after and this would be so much easier for her than the dustpan and brush!

Am I a complete geek for saying I’ve been asking for a hand-vac for years? We have two kids (almost 4 and 15 mos) and a dog (the dog from h***) AND hardwood floors. Add a minivan, and can you see why I want one of these??? It would be such a life saver. Thanks for having such awesome giveaways!

I need to win this because my vacuum is on the fritz. Plus my daughter hates when I vacuum so I would love to have something quieter. I have wood and tile floors and would love to get rid of my bulky vacuum. I mainly use mine for the area rugs and the hose attachment to get the dog and cat hair off the couches and chairs.

I have a cat who leaves fur everywhere in the house and this would be a great tool to clean my car out with. With two young children and a husband my car gets quite dirty on the inside!!!

I begged one year for christmas to get a dirt devil hand held. I thought it would be great for the top of my kitchen cabinets and the top of my dest hutch. Well I was wrong!! Not enought suction. If this electrolux hand held has alot of power It would be worth the win!!!! If I don’t can who ever wins let us know how well it really works.

228 Kim Garner May 6, 2009 at 9:44 am

Since we only have carpet in the kids’ bedrooms, it is so cumbersome to drag out the big vacuum just clean our small area rug. It would be great to have this small handheld one!

Thanks.

229 Amy May 6, 2009 at 9:45 am

I would like to win this for my 2 daughters, ages 10 and 5. They would LOVE to use this to clean up their rooms with. They don’t like lugging the heavy upright we have around, yet they are responsible to clean up their rooms at least weekly. This would make their life easier and mine also. They are wonderful girls and deserve to win something like this. It would sure make our day! Thank you!

230 Christie May 6, 2009 at 9:47 am

238 Briana May 6, 2009 at 10:17 am

Wow! I have been shopping for a great quality, low price, hand held vacuum for months. I have two kids under two who keep the messes comin’ all the time. It sure would be great to stop the search by winning this giveaway. ThanX for the opportunity!

Very ugly but necessary!

I have 9 & 12 yr-old boys and they enjoy sneaking food into their rooms and even hiding things between the cushions of the furniture. If I was to win this they could “enjoy” cleaning up the crumbs themselves. I get tired of dragging the hose to the central vac, especially since when I get ready to vacuum it won’t come on since the connection is lost by the plug because it becomes loose & turns.

275 Amanda May 6, 2009 at 9:22 pm

We live in a 250 year old house and it’s difficult to lug a huge vacuum and get into all the nooks and crannies, especially with two under 4. My son would really love to have a vacuum that he could use to help me out – and, of course, how nice it would be for me to actually sit for 5 minutes :) Our current vacuum is an Electrolux Intensity and we love it – but I think it’s lonely and needs a little green friend to keep it company.

276 Rachelle May 6, 2009 at 9:38 pm

I really need to win the Rapido hand-held vac to swiftly clean up cat hair and that awful white fluff that gets into my house from the trees behind us (every Spring & Summer)! I have a bad back and can’t carry anything heavy. Not only is the Rapido lightweight, it’s on wheels! It’s the first hand-held vacuum on wheels! The Rapido would make it much easier for me to clean our tiled bathrooms and entryway, our hardwood floors and even the cat hair on the carpeting and area rugs. I usually take several rest breaks when I vaccum with my old upright because it’s heavy and difficult to manuver. The Rapido would be a Heaven-sent for me:) Thanks for the chance to win one:)
