Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum Review and Giveaway

I had no idea how difficult it was to shop for a vacuum cleaner. We have been without a vacuum in our house for 6 MONTHS! Our central vacuum cleaner stopped working as well as our refurbished 1960’s monstrosity. With a family of 5 having no vacuum cleaner is a problem. Luckily I was able to borrow some friends vacuums while I was making my decision. I did all the research, tried out all the brands but was having such a hard time making a decision. As luck would have it, an opportunity to try out the Hoover Elite Rewind Vacuum (sold exclusively at Walmart), came my way. Here is some information from the manufacturer:

The Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum is lightweight, sleek and user-friendly. Designed using multi cyclonic technology, this lightweight upright vacuum has strong suction power for improved cleaning. It is powered by a 12 amp motor and has a 25 foot power cord allowing you to vacuum a large room without re-plugging. It features a system check indicator to signal when the dust cup is full or the filter needs cleaning. The re-usable filter reduces your maintenance costs. The Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum features auto cord rewind, on board tools for precision cleaning, a dusting brush to clean furniture and a handle for easy transport.
Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum:
  • Cord Rewind – no more winding – gently tap the pedal to retract the cord to store neatly inside
  • Multi-Stage Cyclonic technology cleans the air moving through the filter for no loss of suction
  • Includes a rinsable filter and high-quality HEPA filter
  • Bottom Release Dirt Cup lets you see what you’ve picked up, when it’s time to empty it out, and simplifies dirt disposal
  • 25 foot Power Cord let you vacuum a large room without re-plugging
  • System Check Indicator lets you know when the filter needs to be cleaned or checked
  • 3 height adjustments allows for pickup on all floor types
  • 8 foot Stretch Hose allows for above-floor cleaning with simple tools
  • Carry Handle right on the front of unit for easy lifting
  • Weighs only 17 pounds. Light and easy to use with thorough cleaning power

This vacuum came just in time for my spring cleaning frenzy. Now that February is here and winter is coming to an end, I always feel inspired to clean and organize my home. Looking for some fun ways to get your family involved in spring cleaning? Here are some ideas:

Family Fun
· Take Attendance: To involve the family in spring cleaning, make sure the assigned day has no prior engagements and check everyone’s schedules. Let everyone know that this is a family event and don’t accept excuses.
· Don’t Forget the Fun: Invite everyone to bring their favorite song to clean to, and make a play list. Then host a dance off where each family member shows off his or her new moves – with their new dance partner – might we suggest a Hoover® vacuum? The winner gets one less chore to do!
· Team Work: Assign rooms to each member of the family. Depending on the number of people in your family, some may be assigned more rooms than others. Very large, complex jobs, such as the garage, may require more than one person working on them.
· Munchie Motivation: Have some your family’s favorites snacks and drinks on hand for break times. Having predetermined breaks can keep the family motivated to keep working.
· Hidden Gem: Hide small tokens around the areas being organized or cleaned. The people who have the most tokens at each break time get an extra 5 minutes at break.
Retail $99.99 and available only at Walmart.

My thoughts on the Hoover Elite Rewind Vaccum: Pros:

  • VERY easy to assemble. Basically just attach the handle and screw in 3 screws. I had the entire thing unpacked, assembled and ready to go in 5 minutes.
  • All the attachments fit nicely onto the vacuum , so no extra storage is required.
  • Comes with a nice long hose and an attachment for cleaning stairs. Worked great on my large staircase, which is always a challenge.
  • The bagless feature is great. Why is it so rewarding to see all that dirt? It truly is amazing what this vacuum was able to suck up out of my (what I thought were clean) rugs.
  • The canister is really easy to empty into the trash. Just takes a moment to do, but I would recommend emptying it after every large vacuum job. It gets filled up quickly.
  • Sucking power. Fabulous. In the past 6 months of research, this vacuum held it’s own on suction capacity, even when compared to models that cost five times as much!
  • Carpet height adjustment dial is easily accessible at the front if the machine.
  • Attaching the accessories is simple. Just press the release button for the hose and attach your accessory. Easy peasy.
  • Let’s talk about the easy rewind feature. I LOVE this!!!!. Unplug your cord after use and instead of winding up the cord, just press a pedal and the cord quickly rewinds all on its own! The feature is simple but works great.

Cons: Not much to ad here, but I do have a couple of thoughts.

  • The vacuum seems to run a little hot. After vacuuming one or two rooms, the cord gets a little warm. Not sure if this is a problem per se, but just something that I observed.
  • This vacuum was definitelydesigned for right handed folks. The cord is located on the right side of the vacuum instead of in the center. This is not an insurmountable problem, just another one of those things us lefties have to deal with.
  • Make sure you unwind extra cord before vacuuming. I noticed that the cord will not unwind on its own if you come up short.

Overall, a really great vacuum at a REALLY great price. I truly would recommend checking out the Hoover Elite rewind Bagless Upright before spending tons of money on another brand. The vacuum works great, has a well thought out design and comes with several attachments. You should have no problem tackling your spring cleaning projects with one of these puppies around.

  • My best spring cleaning tip is to really evaluate if you need something or not. My husband and I used to be notorious for keeping everything, but now that we have kids and have a TON more stuff, I go through everything every 6 months (not just in the spring). I ask myself if this is something we really need? If we haven’t even used it in the last 6 months, its gone. Plus, I have my son help go through his toys and help pick out toys to donate. Its amazing how much stuff kids can accumulate in a short amount of time!

  • My best tip is what I do every time I’m doing spring cleaning or going through anything….I ask myself, is it something I use? Is it something I have used, or just been sitting around for awhile? Is it something that I plan on using? Most likely, it is something I forgot I had and will never use. If all these are no…then out it goes…whether in the garbage or donated. I try not to keep stuff around that has no use to me.

If your house is long then leave a set a both ends of the house. Get a few box’s to put things your going to throw away and donate on both floors or ends of the house to clean out the clutter with out running back and forth.

  • I keep up with the little messes as they happen and make sure everyone puts things away when they’re done using them. That way there’s not a lot of clutter, which, for me, is the biggest turn-off to cleaning. If everything is picked up and put away, I don’t mind dusting, vacuuming and overall cleaning.

  • My best spring cleaning tip is to wash down your outside window screens before you start opening up your windows for the cool spring breeze, the pollen collects on your screens and bows inside with the breeze, so by either spraying them from out side with a garden hose and then lightly scrubbing them with an old mop or long handled brush you can rid the trapped pollen. If its to cold to stay outside and wash them down with a good rinse, then open your windows and wipe them down from the inside by spraying cleaner onto them, then wipping across them with a damp cloth. I do this every 2-3 weeks during the beginning of spring until the pollen has past, it really helps on allergies but still be able to enjoy the incoming breeze

  • My best spring cleaning tip is to START with the clothes dryer vents. We live in the cold midwest and dont get outside to clean them over the winter much. With this being one of the biggest fire hazards in our homes, make sure you clean the vent outside, PLUS any vent tubing too. I bought a cheap brush with extension handle at one of the “dollar stores” and able to disconnect the tubing and clean it thouroughly. I am also not afraid to take the back off the dryer and make sure there are not loose lint pieces stuck there also. Then also when you are swiping down the spider webs with that same brush, (washed of course), make sure you change those batteries in all of your smoke alarms! I also use this brush to scrub the spider ick off the windows when I wash them in the spring (and fall). That $4 brush gets quite the workout!

  • My best tip would be to do a little bit each day so it doesn’t pile up and get overwhelming. I know this is a good idea because I don’t do it and always wish that I had. 🙂

  • I have to take it in 10 minute spurts. Anymore than that and I get frustrated and overwhelmed.

  • To get the boy smell out of the bathroom mix a paste of baking soda and lemon juice. If you don’t have lemon juice you can use water but lemon juice is a great disinfectant and great for removing odors. The consistency of the paste should be about that of pancake mix. Spread the paste all along the bottom of the toilet {where it meets the floor}, the toilet seat, and any other area that gets a lot of over spray. Let it set for about 10-15 minutes. When the timer expires spray the dried paste with white vinegar and let it fizzle. Once it is done fizzing wipe it up with a damp cloth.

  • I like to wear fuzzy socks around the house while cleaning and dusting… it helps to clean up the dust bunnies left on the floor.

  • Don’t forget the ceiling. I always look silly but I sweep our ceiling quite a bit. Ceiling fans tend to push dust on our ceiling so I give it a good sweep

  • Spring is the time to get rid of things that you don’t use any more, or things that don’t work any more. If you haven’t picked it up in 12 months and it doesn’t have any real sentimental value, it’s gone!

  • I clean the outside of my windows using my telescoping car washing brush! It is great for reaching up high, and it is nice and soft on the windows. I also just use a little bit of dish soap and a bucket of water, and all I have to do is rinse the windows off after cleaning and they dry with no spots! Easy peasy!

  • I tend to purge everything come spring time. For some reason I like to hoard paper (old bills, receipts, etc), so I’m usually over it come spring time and start tossing/recycling/shredding.

  • I hate cleaning! So I make sure to put it on my calendar (I never miss calendar items!) and turn up the tunes! 🙂

  • I always carry a basket with me from room to room so when I find things that belong in another room I can take it when I go later rather than walking back and forth. Saves lots of time when you have four kids

  • My best tip would be to clean as you go. I am a bit lazy, but I’ve found that it’s a lot easier to load the dishwasher as I return dishes to the kitchen than to pile them up in the sink and THEN have to load the dishwasher in one go.

  • Put in your kids’ favorite cd, turn it up & let them help out doing their favorite chores, my kids love to dust, vacuum & wash windows 🙂

  • My best tip would be to involve the kids and do one room at a time until it is done. nothing worse than moving on to another room and realize you didn’t finish the room before that

  • I love spring cleaning on the first warm day of the season. I open the windows to let in fresh air, turn up the music and get to work! Even better when you have the family help. It doesn’t really seem like work, really!

  • My best spring cleaning tip is to start with the task you’re dreading most. I always suggest that the best places to concentrate on first are the ones that annoy you the most. These little (or big) annoyances can cause as much mental clutter as they do physical.

  • A good spring cleaning tip that I use is the magic eraser. It removes almost anything off walls and other surfaces.

  • My tip is to use less chemical cleaners. I started using vinegar and lemon juice as all purpose cleaners and baking soda if something needs a more thorough scrubbing. Its so much cheaper, better for the enviroment and works just as well. Sometimes even better!

  • I found a toilet cleaning stone that removes rust stains from the bowl! It works great, but takes some elbow grease

  • One of my best tips would be to delegate. I know it sounds a bit simplistic, but if there are others living in your house, they can help too. Many times the moms take it all on themselves when they don’t have to. Share the work- it makes it so much easier!

  • I love your review. I wish there were more reviews on vacuums before buying because I seriously hate buying vacuums because I’ve had so many bad ones.
