My Holiday Helper :: Hooray For Less Dog Hair!

 Lately, it seems as though I can almost never keep my floors clean. Although having hardwood floors throughout 75% of your house is nice, it can sometimes be a pain when you dog's black hair can be found in every corner of every room, just blowing around as you walk by. And don't even get me started on the post-pregnancy shedding. It is insane. With a new baby that is spending more and more time on the floor learning to roll and play, I have made every effort to keep my floors vacuumed and swept as often as possible. But, with the holiday season in full swing, I have found less time to keep up with some of my daily household chores, and believe me when I say, the hair is everywhere after just one day!

I have tried basically everything. From steam mops to Swiffers and then some. But, my questions was always 'isn't there an easier way to keep up with all of this?' And now, my friends, there sure is! 

Allow me to introduce you to my new best friend ......

When the iRobot Braava 380t arrived on my doorstep, I jumped for joy! This powerful and smart little gadget is small enough to weave around through the rooms in my house, around rugs and under furniture, and powerful enough to sweep away all of my dog hair woes! iRobot Braava 380t Floor Mopping Robot dry or damp mops virtually any hard floor surface with disposable or reusable microfiber cleaning cloths. Designed for quick cleaning, Braava systematically covers your entire floor in a single pass. With both mop and sweep functions, the Braava really is perfect for any home.

Now I can get down on the floor and play with Gavin while the Braava sweeps away the dust and hair in the next room. By far my favorite feature is the NorthStar Navigation System, which functions like an indoor GPS and helps your Braava keep track of where it's already been and still needs to go. It can clean a large area in a single cleaning session, so it will work in large and small homes, and uses Wall-Following Technology allowing the Braava to clean right along walls, baseboards and in corners. The Braava will also clean under any piece of furniture it can fit underneath, and the super quiet motor will not even wake your napping baby in the same room! Trust me, I've tried it many times. Plus, it even contains cliff-detecting sensors to help it avoid stairs, area rugs and carpet transition. The Braava can dry mop up to 1,000 square feet with one GPS cube (double with an additional cube) and up to 300 square feet of wet mopping in one job. It comes with a reusable microfiber cleaning cloth, but can also be used with the disposable Swiffer pads that you probably already have lying around!

If you have a dog like mine, who's afraid of vacuums, you can set the Braava to sweep and then watch your dog play a little game with it for the next 15 minutes!

The Braava could not have arrived at our home at a more perfect time. Now, I can worry less about cleaning my floors, and focus on decorating our Christmas tree, playing with Gavin and wrapping presents! The holiday season is so jam packed, and can be stressful when trying to cram everything single thing into short time period, so make it easier on yourself, Mommy's! The iRobot Braava would be the perfect gift to find tucked underneath your tree this year!

I NEED one of those. Between my husband the mechanic, the dog, and the baby on the way, sweeping and mopping is not only a terrible job but it is NOT at the top of my to do list! This would be a god send!
