We love our pets like family and there’s nothing better than snuggling up after a long stressful day than with your favourite furry friend.
I’m the proud mom of two rescue pups and an anti-social, 15-year-old cat. Even though I love my pets more than anything, I don’t want my home to look or smell like they rule the roost. I know all to well what it’s like to see a little tumbleweed of dog hair pass you by while you’re entertaining guests, even though you’ve scrubbed, Febreez-ed and vacuumed your home like a mad woman minutes before they arrived.
My level of obsession with my pets is rivalled by my obsession of keeping a clean home. That’s why I like to share when I come across products designed to make life with pets and kids easier - and it’s even better when they’re on sale.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $280 (originally $329)
What is it?
Bissell is a long trusted name in home and floor care - and the manufacturer of one of my favourite gadgets, the Bissell Little Green spot cleaner.
Now, the brand’s must-have for pet owners, the Pet Hair Eraser Vacuum, is currently on sale for only $280 (regular $329). This corded vacuum cleaner features a tangle-free brush so that you don’t have to worry about pet hair (or even your own hair) becoming wrapped around the brush roll.
Everything about this vacuum has the user in mind, including the patented pet hair spooling system. Unlike other vacuums, where you sometimes have to reach your hand inside the canister to empty collected dust and debris, the Pet Hair Eraser is completely hands-free. Tackle pet dander, dirt and odour on carpets and upholstery with their quick release wand, swivel steering, LED lit crevice tool and more.
Bissell even designed their vacuum with a built-in Febreeze odour eliminator...need I say more?
What people are saying
The Bissell Pet Eraser Vacuum has earned more than 1,900 customer reviews from happy Amazon shoppers enjoying a cleaner, pet-hair free home.
“This actually works for pets. The last vacuum I had said it was intended for pets and then after a year it got so filled with pet hair it was an $80 repair not covered under warranty because it was pet hair. This vacuum on the other hand has addressed all of the problems the other one faced,” one shopper wrote. “The suction is so powerful I accidentally sucked up a sock. The surprise Feebreze filter made vacuuming smell so good.”
While shoppers have noted that the Bissell vacuum is a tad heavy, others have said it’s worth it given the capabilities of the unit.
“Overall a great vacuum! I agree with many, it's decently heavy but manageable (and I'm not super big/strong). I was impressed how good it took the clumps of hair off the carpet and cat scratchers (I have two dogs and two cats all long hair). Cleans up hardwood pretty decent as well, all the little crumbs from kiddos and hairs. The tools are great, didn't find I was wishing for more. Would definitely recommend for those who have any pets,” wrote a shopper. “Love the swivel factor when vacuuming, makes it way easier! So easy to empty and keep going. Tanks a little small, but it's so fast to empty it doesn't matter.”
The Bissell Pet Eraser Vacuum is a wise investment for anyone with pets looking to upgrade their current cleaning routine. If you have multiple pets or allow your dogs free rein of your home (like me), Bissell’s odour targeting feature is a must-have to help your home smell its best and freshest.
For a limited time only, the Pet Eraser Vacuum is currently on sale for $280.
