It’s been a little over 4 months since we moved into our apartment, and we’ve never been more happy! It took a while but everything is finally coming together interior-wise: we’ve decided on our dining room table, our velvet couch is being custom-made as we speak and we’re expecting our marble coffee table to be delivered any minute now. You already know how very much in love I am with my walk-in closet upstairs and I cannot wait to show you the other rooms.
Only ‘downside’ of moving into something more spacious: with great space comes great responsibility (or something like that), which reflects in me having to spend a lot more time cleaning everything around the house. Our little puppet Lewis tends to shed a lot of hair, so we’re basically vacuuming 24/7, and this Fall weather isn’t really helping in terms of keeping our white wooden floors paw-stain-free. So you can imagine that, when I get asked to testdrive a new cleaning supply, I get all kinds of excited!
Philips recently launched its newest vacuum model, the Philips Floorcare Powerpro Aqua, an upright vacuum cleaner that can be used for both dry & wet cleaning. The Powerpro is actually a 3-in-1 genius: it is a cordless vacuum cleaner, has a detachable handheld dustbuster ànd comes with extra tools to turn the vacuum into a microfiber mopping system that cleans up dirt and stains in no time. We have hardwood floors in our living area that I like to vacuum as much as I can, but then we also have tiles and laminate on our stairs and on our second floor, so the Philips Floorcare Powerpro Aqua is the perfect all-round tool for us. I love the fact that the thing is cordless and easy to carry: no more having to carry around a heavy vacuum cleaner when I want to clean the stairs. I add a little water and some detergent into the click-on head, click it in the system on one end and attach the microfiber pad on the other, and booom, ready to give the apartment a good wipe-down! I feel that cleaning with water and detergent really cleans a place, but I hated having to grab a bucket and mop and then going down on hands and knees looking like Cinderella (I know that is probably not how most people mop, but somehow, whenever I tried it, the floorcloth always came of and I struggled real hard 😅). Not anymore though, this system is fool-proof!
The dustbuster comes in handy when I want to dust off our couch, take away crumbs on the table or find plucks of Lewis’ coat floating around. I always thought a cordless system would require hours of charging for only 5 minutes of cleaning, but it turns out that the Philips Floorcare Powerpro Aqua is good for 40 minutes of non-stop cleaning fun in one charge! It completely cleans Lewis’ lounge pillow in one go – and fun fact, Little Lewis, who is always so scared of vacuum cleaners, became instant friends with this one! I know it is not the coolest thing to say, but confession: I enjoy cleaning the house with this baby!
