My New Fall Cleaning BFF

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of BISSELL Homecare, Inc. for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

As you all know by now, “Fall” is my favorite season. I love the crisp nippy air of Fall. I love the bursting color of Fall. And I love the changing sceneries of Fall. However, if there is anything I don’t like about it – it’s the cleaning part of it.

Good thing I have a wonderful helper so the changing season will surely be easy-breezy. Yup, my Sweetest got me the new BISSELL PowerGlide® with Lift-Off® Technology. And this is my new BFF in the cleaning department. This baby is lightweight yet powerful enough to tackle our home’s toughest messes, including pur stairs, the heavy drapes and other hard-to-reach places like under the bed, the sofa and every nook and cranny of your haven.

This baby is really wonderful because of its key features: No won’t loss of suction and sealed system. It has one-step removable pod for portable cleaning, long-stretch hose, 12-inch foot for stability, 27-foot cord, lightweight, swivel steering for maneuverability, adjustable handle for easy use and storage, large capacity dirt cup, and it has TurboBrush® and crevice tool.

Cleaning is not really my department. I don’t really like it but I don’t have a choice. But since I have a new BFF - BISSELL  that can help me do my chore easy-breezy I learned to enjoy Fall cleaning now .
So here are some helpful cleaning tips that you can use on how you can enjoy Fall Cleaning.

Parties & Entertaining
1. The five places you’ve never thought to clean – and your guests will notice
• Stairs and railings, ceiling corners, underneath furniture, window and door frames and behind the bathroom toilet.
• PGLO lift-off pod, crevice tool and swivel steering help to clean hard-to-reach places that other vacuums can’t.
2. How to clean for out-of-town visitors/overnight guests/last-minute holiday guests
• Steps to ready the house for guests, including prepping overnight rooms.
• Quick steps to a cleaner home when last-minute guests are on their way.
3. Party prep checklist
• Steps to make sure your home is ready for your next big bash – what you should do one week, one day and one hour before guests arrive.4. Your worst party messes – solved!
• Party guests come for the fun, but they leave behind plenty of messes for hosts to clean up, specifically food crumbs, drink stains and tracked-in dirt from outside.
5. Holiday cleaning
• There’s no place like home for the holidays, so it’s important that the house looks its best.
• Tips for cleaning before, during and after the holiday season.

Parenting & Pets
1. Cleaning up after play dates, sleepovers, school-year study sessions, etc.
• When kids come together, the messes multiply – quick ways to clean up leftover messes from kids’ play dates, slumber parties and study sessions.
• Messes such as after-school/movie snacks; art projects; paint, pen and marker stains; and sticky messes like glue, juice boxes and more.
2. Chore checklist for the entire family
• Get the entire family involved in cleaning the house with tasks that family members of every age can easily do.
3. Cleaning kid (and pet) messes in the car
• Families spend a lot of time in the car between road trips, school carpools and everyone’s activities. So, it’s not hard to see why there can be just as many messes in the car as in the home.
4. Quick touch-ups when you have little time to clean
• Quick cleaning solutions for every room in the house when you only have 5, 10 or 15 minutes.
5. Your pets aren’t confined to one room in the house and neither are their messes
• As furry members of the family, pets have free reign of the house, but they also take their messes with them.
• PGLO is lightweight enough to move to wherever messes are in the house. Its lift-off pod, crevice tool and long-stretch hose make it easy to clean hard-to-reach pet hair and tracked-in dirt.

Home Décor & Improvement
1. How to keep your home looking like new after redecorating
• A lot of time and resources go into making a home feel like new – cleaning guidelines to keep the home looking its best.
2. The vacuum that cleans every room in the house
• With the PGLO, the vacuum isn’t just for floors anymore – highlight a room-by-room outline of other things PGLO can easily clean, such as stairs, furniture, lamp shades, knick-knacks, bathrooms, the car, etc. Lightweight design makes it easy to carry from room to room.
3. Fall cleaning checklist
• Before winter sets in, it’s important to do another thorough cleaning of the house from top to bottom – what cleaning projects to tackle.
• Checklist to include: cleaning out cabinets, drawers and cabinet tops that have accumulated since spring cleaning and need another clean; cleaning floors; cleaning upholstery, which can collect just as much dirt, crumbs and hair; etc.
• PGLO’s long-stretch hose, lift-off pod and crevice tool make it easy to clean all of these tough places to ensure a clean home for the fall/winter months.
4. Home cleaning and maintenance tips for your next home improvement/DIY project
• While home improvement/DIY projects are meant to make the home look better, the stages between can actually put the home in a state of disarray.
• PGLO has no loss of suction, lift-off pod, long-stretch hose and large capacity dirt cup to clean up tough messes like sawdust, tracked-in dirt, and other particles.
5. Items in your home that you aren’t cleaning but you should be
• Ceiling fans, vents, artwork and computer keyboards are just some of the overlooked items where dirt and grime can collect- what to do to clean them regularly.

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
