Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Deep Cleaner {Review}

Holy moly, my carpets are nasty. Don't get me wrong, they look clean enough. It's just...when you're a mom, you know better. You know exactly what goes on on the carpet, exactly what gets ground-in or seeps underneath the vacuum cleaner's reach. Juice, bananas, even the occasional pee-leak...the list goes on and on.

So you can imagine how insanely excited I was to be chosen to review an amazing carpet deep-cleaner from Hoover! (I practically *squeed* and did a dance.) Let me introduce you to the Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Deep Cleaner.

Nordic Naturals & Healthy Child Healthy World ~ Back To School Promotion!

Our kids are growing up in a very different world than you or I experienced when we were wee ones. Technology grows by leaps and bounds, and with these advancements come more and more new substances to make everyday living more convenient. Unfortunately, since these advancements come on so quickly, we don't have the time or knowledge enough to test the majority of them for toxins or their impact on growth and development. Some reactions may be obvious, like a reaction to a new chemical detergent. But others are harder to diagnose (with the cause never fully proven, either.) 

Here in our household we're making it a priority to eliminate many of the easily-avoidable chemicals in common products. We're in the process of switching from plastic food containers to all metal and glass, which is quite a chore. I never realized how much we rely on plastic these days for just about everything. Cups, plates, kids toys, tooth brushes, medicine bottles, everything. There have been numerous studies linking BPA and other plastics to cancers and other diseases, but since we don't yet have any concrete conclusive results these chemicals are permitted by our regulators. This is just one aspect on our path to healthy living. It can be so overwhelming!

Luckily for us moms, Healthy Child Healthy World is there to guide us! Healthy Child Healthy World is a great resource for parents to learn more about living a healthy lifestyle and instilling these values in our children so that they in turn will live healthy lives. Founded in 1991, Healthy Child Healthy World ignites the movement that empowers parents to protect children from harmful chemicals.

Today, TBB makes over 75 different varieties of pastries, including sugar-free, gluten-free, and whole grain items.
