Holloway House Cleaning Products Review

Remind me, when I hit the lottery to get a housekeeper.  I didn't like cleaning when it was just my husband and I (and the 3 dogs).  But, now with a baby, in addition to doing daily laundry, I need to make sure the house is clean each week, for the baby's sake.  Even though I stay home with the baby and should be able to find time throughout the day to clean, I can't seem to find the time.  Now, I am regretting having a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house (with 3 levels) to clean.  After taking care of the baby all day, and finding time throughout the day to work on my business, the last thing I want to do is house clean.  

And, with the recent snow storms, we had ice dams and water leaks throughout the house.  So, in addition to dumping buckets of water and mopping up wet hard wood floors, I found the need to clean the house a daily task.  I had the opportunity to try out Holloway House cleaning products last weekend, during my all-day Saturday cleaning.  I began my cleaning at 9AM and finished around 7PM.  Arggg.... What a day.   But, I enjoyed using the products Holloway House sent me to try out.  

My favorite was their new Quick Shine® Glide Sweeper™.  After charging the battery the night before, I was able to use the sweeper for 45 minutes, cleaning up all the lint bunnies and dirt tracked in the house, prior to my mopping escapade.  What I loved most about the Quick Shine® Glide Sweeper™ is that it that it glides over surfaces and using brushes on all four sides, allowing you to clean right up along the baseboards and edges of your floors. 

And, it slides under and around tight areas effortlessly.  I think I have found my new cleaning friend.  Now, each day, I put Savannah in my baby wrap and proceed to sweep the floors.  It feels so good to know that I am able to clean the house daily, and with a flick of 2 buttons, I dump the debris right into the trash -- so, no more dust pan and brush to deal with.  I think I am in love!!!!!  And, for only $39.99, you can't go wrong with this rechargeable and lightweight Quick Shine® Glide Sweeper™.

After I used the Quick Shine® Glide Sweeper™, I proceeded to try out the Quick Shine® Floor Care Kit.  This kit comes with mop and Quick Shine® Floor Finish. The mop contains a soft, re-usable micro-fiber smooth pad, which can be used wet or dry. What I loved most about the Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor Mop was that I was able to wash the micro-fiber cleaning pad and was ready to clean again.  No more worrying about fitting those pesky wipes sheets to the bottom of the floor mops or running out of them, as they get dirty quickly and don't pick up debris.  And, with a house full of hardwood floors, it is hard to find a product that actually cleans the wood and doesn't leave streaks or spots.  It was so easy to glide the Quick Shine® Hardwood Floor MopQuick Shine® Hardwood Floor Mop retails for $14.99, with the option of buying additional refill micro-pads. across the floors, and not worry about cleaning and wringing out a mop.  I was able to clean the floors in half the time, and didn't have to worry about emptying heavy buckets of dirty water.  All I had to do was remove the micro-fiber pad and toss it in the wash.  It was that easy.  The

In addition to these two products, Holloway House also sent me the Quick Spill® Floor Wipes and the Quick Shine® Multi-Surface Wipes to try out.  I just loved these wipes.  With 3 dogs and baby, they came in very handy.  I used them to wipe up baby food that was thrown on the floor, as well as quickly wipe up pet accidents.  No more having to pull out the spray bottle and paper towels.  In a flash I was able to clean up spills, and then discard the wipes.  And, the best part is that these wipes can be used on a variety of surfaces.  So, more buying wipes for tile, vinyl and wood.  Now, I have the cleaning action for each all in one product.  The same goes for the multi-surface wipes, which can be used on leather, wood furniture/cabinets, countertops, auto dashboards/interior trim, granite counters and kitchen/bathroom surfaces. Each wipes container retails at $4.99 each, or you can buy a 6-pack for only $23.94.  They are cheap enough to get and store in each room of your house for speedy clean-up.

I have definitely found a new cleaning product family -- Holloway House.  After a long day of cleaning, my house was shining from floor to ceiling, and 4 days later, it is still clean.  Other cleaning products seem to fade the next day -- Not, Holloway House!
