Soapbox Saturday - Bissell

Remember how I asked you guys for some vacuum advice a while back after my Shark stick vac died?  I wrote Shark to explain my frustration and never heard back.  However, later I got a really nice e-mail from Bissell, offering me two of their sweepers to try out.  I was thrilled to give them a shot and more than happy with the products.  Here are the two they sent me to try.

So, we divided into teams and tried them both out. 

Both sweepers got a real work out from my boys.  They were both really light and maneveured easily.  So, here's my run down on what I liked about each sweeper.

The Natural Sweep is really eco-friendly.  You don't plug anything in.  It just sweeps as you move it.  To be honest, I didn't think I was going to like this one.  I was wrong.  It's awesome for a quick clean up - especially when my kids are napping.  It doesn't make any real noise, since you don't plug it in.  It worked well on the hardwood and the rug.  You do have to roll a bit past the crumbs you are sweeping up in order to pick them up.  Since there's no suction you can't just barely go over them.  You have to push about a foot beyond the mess.  I love that there's no replacing bags.  Just empty the container.  No charging, no complications.  I think I'll have this forever.

The Perfect Sweep Turbo was also really good.  I think it picks up a little better than the other one because the brushes turn even when you're not pushing it.  It has these little brushes on the side that help when you're sweeping along the wall.  It's also easy to empty out.  It's a lot more quiet than the old Shark one I had, which is a bonus. 

So which one do I prefer?  Well, my answer is BOTH.  It's honestly a split tie for me.  I am really pleased with both sweepers.  They are great products.

Thank you Bissell for letting me try them out and for solving my under the table dilemma.

And thank you for reading.
