The Oreck Grab-It & Steam-It - Grab One for Yourself!!

We sure have been kicking off this summer with some exciting giveaways, haven't we?! Well, today we are kicking off a brand new one, and it may just be our biggest one yet! 

If you are any kind of social media maven, or you just love a sparkling clean house, then you are more than likely, already a fan of Oreck. 


I received this product to review from Oreck, but all thoughts and opinions about the product are my own. The Oreck Corporation provided the prize for the sweepstakes but is not the sponsor of the sweepstakes.


It is no secret that I would consider myself a Type-A 'neat freak.' You know the type, can't leave for work without cleaning the kitchen, and can't get to bed without doing the same. I hate waking up to a dirty kitchen. But, while I do love a clean house, and do take pride in these wifely responsibilities, I have learned very quickly how much more difficult and time consuming cleaning a 4 bedroom townhouse is that the one bedroom apartment where we used to reside. Oh, and don't forget our energetic, 60lb. black lab!

Before I met my Oreck 'Grab-It & Steam-It' steam mop, I would typically try and squeeze most of my cleaning into one day. By the time I picked up the vacuum to 'finish the job,' steaming the floors had totally fallen off of my list of 'must's', because, most of the time, I no longer had the energy to separately vacuum and steam after I had tackled bathrooms, dusting, appliances .. you get the picture.


And then, my little cleaning heart was blessed with a gift that would allow me to vacuum and steam at the same time! Could it be true?! 

And yes, it certainly was. 


Now, all I need to do is fill up the handy, detachable water container, pop both that and the steam pad on, and I am a cleaning machine.

It's super easy to switch modes. From straight vacuuming to straight steaming, it all happens with the simple turn or press of a button.


The red, blue and green light system will tell you when it's ready to steam, and off you go! I mean really, they couldn't have made it much easier for a woman on-the-go to 'kill two birds with one stone?' 

Now, I can easily suck up all of the lingering dog hair around our house, and steam away the inevitable spots that adorn our floors each week, at the same time! I would have to say that my favorite place to use my new Oreck steam mop is in my kitchen. There are always water stains around Riley's food & water bowls, and sometimes, leftover residue from my cooking or B's work boots!

The Grab-It & Steam-It has saved me so much time, and has truly allowed me to enjoy the process of keeping my floors clean so much more than I ever did before.


Now, I bet you're wanting me to get to the good stuff, right?! How can you enter to become the owner of your very own Oreck 'Grab-It & Steam-It?' Well, that's easy, ladies! 

Begin by visiting Oreck.com and telling us one thing you learned about the Grab-It & Steam-It in a comment on this post. Then, simply use the widget below to collect the rest of your entries!


This giveaway begins today, and will run through Monday, June 25th. 
The winner will be announced on Tuesday, June 26, 2012.

Maggie said...

I would love my very won Oreck Steamer!!!

Laura said...

It sanitizes!! I love that feature and have been lusting over these. Is that sad?! ha! 3 dogs + a toddler = I really NEED my floors sanitized!

Molly said...

I learned you can use the dual feature independently or simultaneously. That is brilliant!

Caitlin said...

I love that it sanitizes, and that you can match the steam output to the cleaning task!

elizabeth said...

I love that in sanitizes! And that it switches modes so easily!

Angela said...

I need something small and compact to use!!! This would be perfect..especially for our impending move!

MrsNeims said...

I would love, love, love to win this! My whole first floor is hardwood and I dread the sweeping/mopping routine! I can't believe it is ready to steam in just one minute! Crossing my fingers for a win on this one! Thanks for offering this give-a-way!

Erin said...

I love that it sanitizes with steam - Katherine is so sensitive that I try to keep our chemicals to a minimum!

kourtney said...

Vacuums AND steams?! 2 dogs & husband in the house? Love it. Need it.

Neely said...

The lights tell you when its ready to steam :)

Kelly Buyers said...

I love that the microfiber pads are reusable! It can become a pain and expensive when you're always having to buy new pads for the swiffer mops & sweapers.

Happiness Is... said...

I didn't realize that it was also a vacuum which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. I also like that I'd be able to get rid of our silly Swiffer which does NOT work (and is a waste of money!) Our whole house is hardwood and I would love this!

Libby's Life said...

It steams and it vacuums!!!

Lynsey said...

I love how it just takes one button to switch from steam to vacuum!

Lauren said...

I love that it steams AND vaccums like a normal vaccuum. And all with a simple switch.

Lindsey B said...

I also didn't realize it was also a vacuum. We have hard woods throughout our house so being able to steam, and then easily switch to vacuum mode for our rugs, would be so much easier than hauling the vacuum out all the time! How awesome!

PattyAnn said...

Steam and Vaccum?!?! I WANT!!!

Caitlynne and Jared said...

That's so cool that it switches from sweeping to steaming with just the push of a button! With two dogs and a messy toddler I have been wanting one of these so badly!!

Brittany said...

I found out that it holds 21 oz of water which is WAY MORE than my current mop I have which doesn't vacuum like this one wither! Hope I win!

Jessica Hudson said...

Just learned that it works on low pile carpet too, which is what we have. So perfect. I NEED this!

Kodi said...

We have all hard woods and tile. We could really use this!

Michelle2120 said...

I love that it switches modes so easily and that I don't have to spend the time getting a separate appliance out. Also sanitizing is a must!! :)

I love everything about the Oreck Steam Mop but one thing I didn't know is that you can use it on hard floor surfaces and low profile carpet which is great!!
