I Went to Chicago and Got Bitten by a SHARK!

Although I did receive compensation in the form of a Shark Sonic Duo *SQUEE* for this post from Alpaytac Inc., I promise you I would have talked about this anyway, and all opinions, ideas, and photos are entirely my own. 
OK, so there wasn’t a lot of water in Chicago, and I didn’t get bitten by a “real” shark. But after attending an exclusive (invite only because I’m all special like that) event at The Whit hosted by the fabulous folks at Mom Trends and the amazing Shark team, I got bit by the cleaning shark bug. I watched a demo about an amazing cleaning creature that scrubbed hardwoods and carpet with ease, and I wanted one so, so hard. I came home, ready to purchase this Shark beast, but they offered to send me one to review. *Insert angels singing here.*

Y’all I’m a clean freak. I don’t clean as much as I want to these days because I’m just too busy, but I love clean. 

There are 3 things I love dearly in life and they are my husband, my children, and cleanliness. Those 3 things do not happily coexist. My kids, and my husband, are not so clean. They spill stuff. They track in dirt. They put the “ick” in “icky”. 

I vacuum regularly. I dust. I “do” toilets. I don’t do windows. I won’t lie. But one thing I’m particular about is my floors. I feel mine are clean but boy have I been wrong. The babies helped me see the light. 
The other night, Bubby had an accident in his pants. Bug wanted to help him hide it from me. And so she began cleaning (curse me for taking a shower at night). But what she, they, did was make a mess. He had poop all over himself and she had poop on her feet. The what? I got out of the shower to find a mess. Poop on her feet that she so happily walked through the living room with. YAY!

I put them both in the bath. I washed them. Then I scrubbed my floors but I still had stains. B couldn’t see them. You might not see them. I did. Now what?

Oh wait? I’ve got a Shark. 

The Shark Sonic Duo Cleaning System is the FIRST EVER dual solution for cleaning both carpet and hardwood floors. It uses Sonic Trap and Remove Technology, Sonic Scrubbing, Airglide Maneuverability, and cleaning pads and solutions that really do get all of your floor surfaces clean. 
It’s so easy to use. So light weight. And with little effort on my part (seriously pretty much just like vacuuming), my stain problems were gone. And so much more. Oy, these carpets were dirty. Who knew? I vacuum all the time. No one is allowed to wear shoes in my house. My carpet should be clean. Not so much!
This is my carpet prior to cleaning it with the Shark. Told you. I’m not nasty. I do try to keep things clean, and I thought they were (other than that poop stain).
You might not be able to see the huge difference from the pictures (or smell the difference?) but let me show you what this innovative, inexpensive, easy to maneuver powerhouse took out of my carpets. Get ready to gag…and go…
Gross. I know. Don’t judge. This is from someone who vacuums regularly, doesn’t allow shoes in her house, and there’s no eating anywhere other than the table. This is just GROSS!

Never again. Our stains are gone and this was the easiest thing in the world to maneuver (I can’t say that enough). Plus no mess like traditional carpet cleaners. And it does my hard wood and laminate floors too. 

If you act RIGHT NOW, your carpets can be as clean as mine without a lot of effort. You would think this technology would cost you an arm and a leg, but you would be thinking wrong. The Shark Sonic Duo & Starter Kit, which is what I have, is a total value of $400. BUT with this exclusive offer, you can get all of this for just $199.80 plus S&H. Amazing, I know, you’re welcome.

So yes, I was bit by a Shark in Chicago and I’m hooked. They reeled me in and I’m a grateful catch. Now go snag yours before it’s too late. Don’t let this be the one that got away.

  1. This is going to be mine!

  2. I need one of those! I have a giant carpet cleaner thing and it’s just too big to use more than a few times a year.

    I used to have one of those and hated it so I never used it. You don’t even have to clean this thing when you’re done. Just wash the pad in the washing machine.

    If you kiss enough boys, you can save up for one. 😉 Sorry, hangout humor. Seriously though…DO IT!
