Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum Review and Giveaway

9 Flares 9 Flares ×

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

  • Set the timer for 20 minutes and go…..do interval cleaning so it isn’t so overwhelming. If you have kids they can easily help for 20 minutes (or less if younger).

  • Team up with two or more friends and clean each other’s houses together. Make it special and fun by providing music, ordering in a lunch, maybe even having door prizes or little gifts for the friends. This way you can also pool any special cleaning equipment you or they might have… like say a HOOVER ELITE!

  • One of the best tips I can recommend is to start with the dirtiest/most cluttered part first. That way you don’t lose your motivation knowing you have that lingering mess ahead of you

  • I’m not much of one to do Spring Cleaning (or any other cleaning for the matter–LOL!); however, my husband makes a big deal out of doing a thorough cleaning a couple times a year. I think opening the windows to get some fresh air in the house is one of the first things we would do ;)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  • I make a list of each different task. I then do one at a time without looking at the rest of the list. The best part of this is crossing tasks off the list :)

  • My best cleaning tip is; don’t let yourself get overwhelmed,make a list by priority, work your way down the list and designate some cleaning chores to other family members!

  • I make sure to keep up with the day to day cleaning so when Spring Cleaning time comes I only have the big chores to do like taking down the drapes to wash. I also wash our walls every couple of months so I dont have to do it in the spring. If you plan on doing certain jobs throughout the year, you dont get overwhelmed!

  • Organize yourself! I always write a detailed list of everything that needs to be cleaned and then work in one area at a time– crossing off tasks from my list. It holds me accountable to see everything on the list and everything is getting cleaned that should be.

  • When hanging clothes in the closet, hang the hangers backwards for the current season. If at the end of the season there are clothes you haven’t worn, then donate them.

    Reply
  • 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.

  • I used to try to do it one room at a time, and found one job at a time much easier. Upstairs closets, downstairs closets, windows, baseboards, kitchen drawers, kitchen cupboards . . . not feeling pressured to finish each room completely all at once helped me to be more productive.

  • I really don’t have any tips & have never been in to the whole season clean up stuff. I just get around to it when I feel up to it & it doesn’t matter what day or time of the year it is.

  • Best Cleaning tip? I start with my windows. Having the sunshine come in through clean windows not only helps me see better, but it cheers me up and inspires me to keep the rest of the house clean.

  • If you feel overwhelmed by all that has to be done remember to take it one step at at time. Start with a closet maybe and finish that. Don’t try to do too many things at the same time. They will either not all get done or discourage you.

  • My best cleaning tip “setting the mood” lol… I do this by turning on music, turning the tv off, and just cleaning full force! This usually helps me get cleaning done in under an hour.
