Yes, I am writing a post about a vacuum cleaner.

What? You mean you don’t vacuum your house in a dress and heels? DOMESTIC GODDESS STATUS REVOKED!

Let’s talk about the newest love of my life. Yes, it’s a vacuum cleaner, and although some of you might think that a little awkward, if you’ve been around here for awhile, you know I love me some clean floors. I am a Vacuuming Expert, a Sweeping Expert… basically, if you need to someone to come over and rid you of all the dust bunnies on your floor, I’m your girl.

Remember how excruciating it was for me to leave those Cheerios on my kitchen floor for this experiment? I shudder at the thought.

Here’s the deal. I’m not going to name names, but D and I plunked down a LOT of cash for a very popular vacuum cleaner a few years ago, and although that very popular vacuum cleaner was very loved during the first few months, it quickly became the bane of our existence. It was horrible. It wouldn’t suck up 50% of what was on the floor, and we were totally baffled. I can’t tell you how many times we would look at each other and say, “maybe we’re doing it wrong.” Doing it wrong? It’s a VACUUM CLEANER, not a highly scientific projectile rocket launcher. Yet we would try and try and then visit the the manufacturer-approved repair facility who would replace a random part, only to see no significant improvement when we returned home. Let me be completely frank, our housekeeper wouldn’t even use it. She instead lugged a 50-pound monster from 1979 around the house instead of utilizing the Fancy New Vacuum.

The vacuum was highly annoying, to say the least. Especially to a lady who quite enjoys vacuuming her floors. So when Oreck contacted me about sending me the new Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Combo, I kind of flipped out like a freak of nature. YES, ORECK. PLEASE SEND ME THE VACUUM. P.S. – I LOVE YOU.

You guys. YOU GUYS. I’m trying so hard not to be all cringeworthy vacuum cleaner fan girl, but I love it so much. It sucks up everything. Everything! You can use it on all types of floors and rugs! It lies virtually flat, so you can vacuum allllllll the way underneath chairs and other furniture! AND! It weighs 7 pounds. I am totally serious when I tell you than I can hold the vacuum cleaner above my head with one hand.

Now, of course, it retails for $600, so it better be a damn good vacuum cleaner, right? It is worth every penny though, and I would gladly spend my cash on this bad boy. (Immediately followed by setting the former Fancy Vacuum Cleaner aflame while performing some Wiccan dance routines in my driveway.) Don’t forget that the combo includes the Ultimate Handheld Vac, a powerful, portable and lightweight handheld vacuum. If your current handheld vacuum is a little lackluster (let’s say it sucks up Cheerios, but the second you turn it off, the Cheerios fall right out of the nozzle onto the floor…you know what I’m talking about…), you will love this awesome little vac.

Drumroll, please. Oreck is giving away one Magnesium Vacuum Combo to a lucky Whoorl reader. Awesomeness. There are a few ways to enter.

1. The first (and mandatory) entry is to head over to Oreck, check out the vacuum, and leave a comment on this post about one thing you learned about the Magnesium.

If you’d like some extra chances to win, here are some more options. Please leave me a separate comment for each that you do so you get full opportunities to win!

2. Follow @oreck on Twitter.

3. Like Oreck on Facebook.

4. Sign up for Oreck’s email list by clicking on the orange “Sign up for Email” in the top navigation bar on the right at Oreck’s website.

The giveaway winner must be a resident of the 48 contiguous states. Sorry, Hawaii and Alaska. You know I love you guys, though.

Entries will be accepted until next Tuesday, May 29th at 6 p.m. PST. I’ll announce the winner the following day. Good luck, everyone!

Oreck kindly provided me with the Magnesium Vacuum Combo. Oreck Corporation provided the prize for the sweepstakes but is not the sponsor of the sweepstakes.

    7,000 rpm rollerbrush! pick me!

    also, how does it do with long hair? i have found that i spend most of my time vacuuming cutting my [super long and straight] hair out of the beater bar.

    I find it awesome that the vacuum lies flat for cleaning under furniture – no more heaving my large sofas out of the way! I love that this vacuum works great on hardwood floors! I have yet to find a vacuum that doesn’t need a broom to catch its leftovers. I would love to try this in my kitchen – thanks for sharing :)

    I have a fancy spendy vacumm also, and my biggest complaint is the huge ordeal it is to attach a hose for window sills and under cabinets. I think on the Magnesium I would love how lightweight it is and for the portable version, I would love the ability to just grab it and clean up quick messes!

    What did I learn about it? It’s super light-weight, way more money than my husband would feel comfortable spending on a vacuum and has very positive reviews! Maybe with this I could actually carry the vacuum up and down the stairs in my pregnant condition. (Of course, maybe I’d still have to force the hubby to… gotta take what you can get while you can, right?)

  • Christina

    May 24, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I’m sold on the weight and on the HEPA filter because the hubby has bad allergies. When we first got married I used the bagged vacuums and almost killed him one time when the dust spilled (ok so kill is a little dramatic). Thanks for the sponsored giveaway, I may have to look into this anyway, we need a new vac.

    Two speeds? That’s brilliant.

    We have a horrible (but at least inexpensive) vacuum. Every time I use it, I think of Dave Barry’s comment about how men think you should just run a board along the floor to get the lines. That’s pretty much what mine does.

  • ppp

    May 24, 2012 at 11:22 am

    YES PLEASE!!! My vacuum cleaner is a massive beast that is barely has any suction left.

    And HELLO – the Oreck Magnesium has a SHOULDER STRAP for carrying it around with you while you use the different attachments to get in all those dust-bunny-filled crevices of the house?? Genius, i tell you.

    I’ve disliked our vacuum for a long time, but “dislike” has been elevated to “hate” now that I’m 8 months pregnant. Lugging that beast up the three flights of carpeted stairs in our townhome is nearly impossible now, and since our couches are up on legs i have to move them to suck up all the dog hair tumbleweeds that like to gather under them on the hardwod floors. the fact that the Magnesium weighs only a few pounds and can lie almost flat to vacuum under furniture sounds like heaven. I would choose a Magnesium over a couples massage with Colin Firth. I can’t believe I just typed that, but yes. YES. Sorry, Mr. Darcy.

    Oh my, this is a great giveaway! We have an old vacuum that is probably on it’s last legs. I love that this one works on both carpet and tile, as we live in a house with concrete/tile floors that get chilly in the winter so I have tons of rugs all over the place. That makes vacuuming feel like I’m in a maze!

So great.

  • Kirsten

    May 25, 2012 at 7:00 am

    I learned how it works: Here’s how: our upright vacuums incorporate a “dirty air system” in which dirt is pulled through a fan that breaks it into smaller particles that get sucked up into the vacuum. Oreck’s smaller motor drives this fan, as well as the brushroll. Because these smaller motors sit closer to the floor they provide efficient suction and are able to spin the brushroll incredibly fast.

    I learned it costs $599.99, ouch. But I have an ancient CANISTER vacuum because it is the only thing I’ve found that will work on the one room of carpet we have in our house. So maybe it would be worth that price tag to not have to lug that thing around anymore…

    I wont lie, I am copying and pasting this “The two speed Quickswitch™ on the back of the vacuum enables you to move smoothly across all floor types using appropriate power levels: high for carpets and low for hardwoods and tile” but that is a pretty vacuum and my MIL was a hosekeeper and she swears that you only buy these babies once and they last forever and are so light. I can never come up with the moolah at once for one, but maybe for my 20th anniversary!

We currently have no vacuum and we SWEEP the rug… I would love a vacuum that could handle this house! :) Thanks :D
