Shark has a clever new vacuum that shines on both carpets and wood floors. The Shark Rocket Powerhead (I received model AH452 to review) is a light and compact vacuum. The brush, motor, filters, and dirt collection are all in the module that rolls on the floor. The stalk and handle really just serve as […]
“The house is clean, mom, who’s coming over?” Anyone who knows me understands I am not much of a housekeeper. Sure, I could blame it on the three kids and two cats but to be honest, cleaning was never one of my talents. In fact, my husband picks up a lot of the slack in […]
With Earth Day around the corner, I have been taking stock of how green my family is and how we can do more. Sure we recycle, turn off lights when leaving a room, buy local and organic food and make car trips succinct but what else can we do? One idea I had was […]

Before I had children, I would hand-wash lingerie and other delicate clothing in the sink and then hang it to dry. With a preschooler and a baby in the house, it’s harder to find the time.
The Whirlpool Duet Washer has a hand-wash cycle, which I used for delicate sweaters, blouses, lingerie and silk hosiery. Using the hand-wash cycle saved time and effort, and my items came out looking as good as new.
