Why I Love My Vacuum Cleaner (Giveaway!)

Neato Robot Vacuum Cleaner Review

This is our new robot helper around the house, whom we’ve affectionately named Mr. MagNeato. He’s the Neato XV-21 Robot Vacuum cleaner, and he sucks up dirt and dust like a magnet! We added the Boston Terrier sticker ourselves, but personally I think they should come standard. Don’t you? ;)

Neato Robot Vacuum Cleaner Review

1. Vacuum Lines.

Nothing brightens up a room like vacuum lines! I love the Neato because it doesn’t just bounce around the house haphazardly. It uses a laser to scan the room first and map the best, most efficient route before getting to work. The route changes every time it vacuums, so it’s sure to hit every nook and cranny. The Neato knows where it’s been and where it hasn’t, so it won’t miss a spot. As it vacuums, the sensor continues to scan, enabling the robot to navigate furniture, walls, stairs or Miley and Howie.

2. Powerful

The Neato XV-21 is specially designed for pet owners and allergy sufferers. I am amazed at how powerful the suction is! It doesn’t just push trash on the floor around. It picks it up! I was afraid it wouldn’t work as well as a regular vacuum cleaner, but I am amazed at how clean our carpets look. We did the old vacuum comparison test: We first vacuumed with our regular vacuum cleaner, then set the Neato to work while we put our feet up and relaxed. Look at what all the Neato picked up that our other vacuum left behind! This little compartment needs to be emptied after every use, but it’s so easy to just grab it and dump the dirt in the trash — so much easier than large, fumbly canisters or bags, and you know you’re starting with a clean slate before every single vacuum.

3. Schedule

You can schedule the Neato to vacuum for you whenever you want — when you’re at work, at the grocery store, or even while you sleep. Put your feet up and relax while Neato does the work! :) (He is just as loud as a regular vacuum cleaner though, so we don’t generally run him while we’re watching TV. :)) Last minute company coming over? Let Neato do the floors while you take care of the bathrooms. He works great on my tile floor as well! Neato can easily maneuver small obstacles such as rugs and door frames, so no need to “babysit” him. I have our Neato scheduled to run at night while we sleep, so we wake up to freshly vacuumed carpets in the morning.

My floors actually look like this all the time now, and all I have to do is press a button!

4. Value

The Neato XV-21 retails for $429.99. I kind of balked at the price at first, until I thought about it. There are several other extremely popular vacuum cleaners on the market right now that retail for upwards of $500-$600. And they don’t do the vacuuming for you! With the Neato, you don’t have to haul out a heavy machine. You don’t have to push it around every single room in your house. You don’t have to wind up the cord and put it away.

The only vacuuming work you’ll ever do from now is press a button.

of course when company is coming you have to clean the bathroom, but I always feel like if my floors are clean the house looks clean. Thanks for giveaway

Lindsey August 24, 2012 at 1:33 am

I always clean the living room first…the room that is used most! Hope I win! :)

Casey August 24, 2012 at 2:01 am

I dust first so that I don’t have to clean the floor twice!haha

Candice S. in Colorado August 24, 2012 at 2:12 am

I hope this is the lucky post right here!!!!! LOL! This vacuum looks so cool and w/ two dogs and severe allergies, it sounds like it just might be what I need! I am a vacuum freak! I love to have a clean floor. I am almost obsessive about it!

The first thing I clean w/ I know we are having people over is: The Bathrooms! We have 3 and I just despise cleaning bathrooms, so I get that out of the way first. Same is true for weekly cleaning, the bathrooms are first. Just have to get them done. I always save my vacuuming for last. There is nothing better than having a clean house….then the vacuuming is like the icing on the cake. I know that sounds crazy, but remember, I am obsessive about having no lint or dog hair lying around!!

Thank you so much Amanda, you always have the coolest giveaways. I love learning about new stuff! I have purchased many things based on your recommendations, so thanks for keeping me informed on all the cool stuff!!!!!!

xo,

The kitchen! After all, it’s the heart of our home. :) They might have to sit on cat hair, but they’ll be fed in a sparkling clean kitchen/dining area.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Meagan August 24, 2012 at 2:14 am

I always start by cleaning up any clutter that is on counters, end tables, couches etc. I dust as I go so that by the time I am done I am ready to vacuum. I learned from my mom to leave the vacuuming for last so that the vacuum will pick up anything that might fall. I usually keep my bathrooms clean so I don’t need to do anything extra for company.

October August 24, 2012 at 2:15 am

It all depends on if they’re staying for dinner, the night, or what… But generally we go in this order… Floors, Bathroom, Kitchen… Then Guest Room. :)

Pamela Downing August 24, 2012 at 2:16 am

Whenever company is coming over the first thing I do is pick up all of my French Bulldog, Myrtle’s toys!

9
Maggie August 24, 2012 at 2:17 am

The first thing I clean is the living room….especially the floors. I have dogs, and it never fails that I have dog hair on the carpet…

10
Colleen Francis August 24, 2012 at 2:18 am

I tackle the front door shoe choas then i run for the bathrooms! w/ 2 teenage boys and a daughter! Oh my!

11
Rachel Elliott August 24, 2012 at 2:18 am

I vacuum the living room and also clean the bathroom.

Oh my goodness!!! I really hope I win!!!!! Really do!!!

12
Gayle August 24, 2012 at 2:18 am

The dog hair dust-bunnies from the kitch floor! Quickly followed by the doggie tounge marks on the stainless steel fridge door :)

13
Maria August 24, 2012 at 2:21 am

Its honestly between the bathroom and the kitchen. But I would learn more towards the kitchen because that’s where it needs to be cleaned all the time even without company coming. You have to make sure there are no dirty dishes on sink or left over food or anything on the kitchen table. The over has to look presentable. You can’t have a stove looking dirty. The floors have to be mopped. Honestly, I just feel embarrassed when he kitchen looks dirty especially when guests are coming.

14
Ashley August 24, 2012 at 2:23 am

I always clean the bathroom first!

15
Schmidty August 24, 2012 at 2:24 am

First thing is the bathrooms.

(Now how cool would it be to have those neat little marks on your carpet in those very uniformed little rows when you got home!?)

16
Ludmila Troutman August 24, 2012 at 2:25 am

The first thing I do is… to vacuum the whole house because we have a cat and 2 dogs and the floor is always full of pet hair of some sort. After having a baby 8 months ago, I have to vacuum even more often and it sure gets tiring. Would love to be the lucky winner of this lovely hard working machine! =) Ludmila

17
Tanya August 24, 2012 at 2:27 am

I always vacuum first! We have a lab and two kids, so I am always vacuuming! This would be awesome!!!

18
Leanne August 24, 2012 at 2:27 am

What a nifty idea, to have the vacuum run itself while I study would be AMAZING!!

19
ava August 24, 2012 at 2:29 am

Yeah, has to be the bathroom first…and then the sitting room…and the kitchen…and the yard. Drat, it’s a lotta work…so we just ask friends to meet up at a resto or bar,lol!:)

20
Dawn M. August 24, 2012 at 2:30 am

The floors are an absolute must when anyone comes over! Clean floors make everything else feel clean ! :) -Dawn

21
Marie August 24, 2012 at 2:34 am

The first thing I clean is probably the kitchen. A messy kitchen can make a whole house feel messy! Thank you for this giveaway! Love your personal review :)

22
elizabeth August 24, 2012 at 2:34 am

it’s a tie: the bathroom and living room!
living in a three story townhouse, I have been agonizing over vacuuming. my old upright does a great job, but after going up three flights of stairs lugging it, I’m pretty pooped! bought a second lightweight one, but it’s inadequate. this little gizmo would be just perfect for maintaining my multi storied house. it would be an easy carry up the stairs!!. plus it would give me B.T. another toy to chase around the house!

23
Caroline August 24, 2012 at 2:35 am

With my husband being in the Army, he is always inviting his buddies over on the weekends, to relax after the long week and to cook out. Most of these gatherings are impromptu, leaving me to clean our house rather quickly (with a 3 year old and 4 month old to keep occupied as well). If I can get the living room cleaned so everyone can sit down, and the bathroom presentable, I feel like I’m all set. However, with a dog who loves to roll around on the rug, and my 24-plus inches hair shedding everywhere, I feel like I spend most of that time vacuuming the living room. I would LOVE to have something that could keep the floor vacuumed without me even worrying about it!

24
Jesse J August 24, 2012 at 2:36 am

The first thing I clean are the floors and counters… and clear up all the clutter lol

25
Debbie Olson August 24, 2012 at 2:37 am

Hmmm, I think I clean the kitchen first and then the bathroom. If my 12-year old is home, the bathroom is his job, and I vacuum the family room. I would *love* a robotic helper!

26
jean August 24, 2012 at 2:37 am

the bathroom. a typical person could put up with a somewhat topsy turvy room and a little dust here and there but a dingy bathroom is a no-no…a social visit might suddenly become an undesired occurrence.

27
Andrea W August 24, 2012 at 2:40 am

I start with the living room first. I am almost fanatical about the lines in my carpet!! I have several cats and a giant Great Dane so I give my vacuum a run for it’s money. I hope I am lucky and win this awesome giveaway. It couldn’t be better timing since my vacuum has called it quits

28
Debbie August 24, 2012 at 2:41 am

The first thing I clean is the floors. Since I have a dog, I need to vacuum up the dog fur.

29
Kelly F. August 24, 2012 at 2:41 am

I have two Boston Terriers as well and the first thing I clean up when company comes over is all the dog toys they leave scattered all over the floors!

30
Tara Dawes August 24, 2012 at 2:41 am

kitchen because it’s really noticeable when you walk into my house, then the bathroom of course!

31
Ashley August 24, 2012 at 2:41 am

The first thing I do is pick up the clutter from the boys/bathroom. It just depends on what I feel is worse. I am a freak cleaner so the house is never dirty but sometimes not quite up to my standards.

32
Erin August 24, 2012 at 2:41 am

I clean the living room first, then head to the kitchen. I think the robotic vacuum looks amazing!

33
Kim August 24, 2012 at 2:43 am

OMGosh! With 4 dogs and 5 cats I think I would start in the living room and work my way to the family room. This would be so amazing to have help with all the animal hair. I have to vacuum every day to stay on top on the hair. I would love to win this!

34
colleen boudreau August 24, 2012 at 2:43 am

The living room.

Anu August 24, 2012 at 2:44 am

Definitely the living room!

36
Amy Brock August 24, 2012 at 2:45 am

It depends on how much time I have–usually the liter box!!!

37
nikki August 24, 2012 at 2:48 am

The living room!

38
Zendi F. August 24, 2012 at 2:48 am

I dust, then vaccum the floors and clean the bathrooms.. Clean house happy guest.

39
Jill August 24, 2012 at 2:54 am

Oh my! Whether its for company or an ordinary house cleaning, they all begin and end the same way … removing fur from the carpet! Living with a 60# Chow Chow involves frequent vacuuming and still we seem to be losing the battle. Perhaps a better vacuum cleaner would give us a fighting chance? I would love to try the Neato XV-21 in my home.

40
Tamera Alexander August 24, 2012 at 2:56 am

First thing I clean? The kitchen rugs because they show everything! Then the one in the foyer, the living room, the keeping room, etc… Cool vacuum!

41
Freja August 24, 2012 at 2:57 am

I actually love to vaccum. It’s the first thing I’d prefer to do. I enjoy it. Mind you .. I usually have to remove all the hubby’s clothes from the floor first …

42
Amy F. August 24, 2012 at 2:59 am

I typically clean the kitchen and family room first and I’m obsessed with clean floors… I neeeeeeed this robot. So cool!!!

43
Jenah August 24, 2012 at 3:00 am

I literally start from the front door and make my way into the rest of the house;)

44
Ksenia August 24, 2012 at 3:00 am

When the company is coming over the first thing I clean… all surfaces in our living room. There is a tendency for mail and magazines to accumulate on coffee table and such, and less clutter always means tidier room!

45
Jenn K. August 24, 2012 at 3:03 am

I clean the mud room since it’s the room everyone enters through and we tend to just dump stuff there.

46
ES August 24, 2012 at 3:05 am

Two dogs (Maltese) and three cats (of questionable ancestry….). Need I say more? I have my work cut out for me keeping ahead of my tribe of fuzz-bunny makers. Sure hope this thing gets into corners!!!

47
Cristy August 24, 2012 at 3:09 am

I typically run the vacuum at the front entrance and wherever we’re going to be. :) With four kids, it floors can get pretty grubby! Bathrooms always get a touch up, too.

What a great giveaway! Thanks for the opportunity.

48
Debbie Wyler August 24, 2012 at 3:11 am

What a great giveaway! I would love to try it out! The first thing I clean when company is coming over is the bathroom.

49
Laura Graff August 24, 2012 at 3:13 am

I clear the clutter first, then focus on kitcen and bathroom.

50
carmel August 24, 2012 at 3:24 am

I always make sure my powder rooms are totally fresh!

51
Joy August 24, 2012 at 3:25 am

I usually start with the entry way to the house. After all, it is the entrance to the home, and sets the standard!

52
judy bruce August 24, 2012 at 3:27 am

either door you use to enter my house is the dining room and living room. i make sure they are top notch and then move to the bathroom down the hall.

53
Susanmcl August 24, 2012 at 3:31 am

I do the floors first – including vacuuming!

54
ellen August 24, 2012 at 3:34 am

first, I have to put away all the piles of papers that seem to accumulate on the counters. Then, the bathrooms!

55
Tarayn August 24, 2012 at 3:34 am

Always clean kitchen and living first!! Two most important rooms!

56
ileana August 24, 2012 at 3:35 am

What a “neato” giveaway!! Sounds like an amazing product – and i would love to win! The first thing I clean is the kitchen and family room. That’s where we tend to hang out. If the kitchen is clean, life feels good, right?

Thanks for the chance!

57
Farhah August 24, 2012 at 3:37 am

Living room :)

58
Karen F August 24, 2012 at 3:37 am

The first thing I clean is my kitchen – I would love to have a little robot cleaning the floors for me!

59
Nur August 24, 2012 at 3:38 am

Our dining/living room since they’re in the same area :)

60
Matt August 24, 2012 at 3:52 am

My wife is awesome at vaccuming :) haha .. but we are really good at working together and cleaning up 20 mins before people come around. Emergency clean!

61
Carol Bleich August 24, 2012 at 3:57 am

I usually dust first and then vacuum and then head for the kitchen! I’ve wondered how these things work! I have some wood floors too, would it clean up spilled food from my grandson too?
Thanks for the giveaway! Hope I win!

62
Grace K. August 24, 2012 at 4:02 am

Hi Amanda! Thank you for this opportunity! I clean the living room to make it bright and dust free ☆

63
Christle August 24, 2012 at 4:02 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming over are the dishes. There is nothing I hate more than company seeing dishes piled in my sink

64
Deanna August 24, 2012 at 4:07 am

Wow, this little machine would work wonders in my house! We have a 7 year old Boston Terrier that is constantly shedding and she leaves an amazing amount of hair everywhere…..Absolutely the first thing we do when company is coming over is grab the vacuum……and second comes the dusting! I would love to replace my Hoover but could never afford to spend more than $400 on a sweeper……and I would love to have such a cool little thing to help me out around the house…..thanks for the chance to win, Amanda. I’ve got my fingers crossed!

65
Glenda August 24, 2012 at 4:09 am

I clean the living room first, then on to the bath room. By the way, I have four Boston babies.

66
Barbara Noland August 24, 2012 at 4:13 am

My family room is top on the list. No matter how hard I try, my two dogs bring in debris from the yard. I have to pull out my vac everyday…this would be a charm!

67
Cassie B. August 24, 2012 at 4:15 am

The first thing that needs to be cleaned is usually the living room. There’s cat toys everywhere. There’s doggy hair. There’s cup rings on the glass tables. Honestly, it is usually messier than I’d like but a vacuum that does it for me would be a great change! Thanks for the giveaway!

68
Amanda August 24, 2012 at 4:17 am

Love the look of this! I always start in the living room- where my 95 lb Border Collie/ Bassett Hound sleeps. Lots of dog hair!

69
MaryAnn August 24, 2012 at 4:32 am

I could really use this! The living room is the first room I clean when company comes. It is the first room they see.

70
Carolyn L. August 24, 2012 at 4:33 am

We clean up all the extra papers and magazines strewn about the living and dining rooms.

71
Aissa August 24, 2012 at 4:38 am

I start with the livingroom. It’s the first place they see.
Then I do the bathroom. This vacuum look awesome.
I have 2 Cats and it would be a god send. Thanks so
Much for the chance.

72
Gretta August 24, 2012 at 4:38 am

Wow, what a vacuum! Great giveaway! I alsways start with the kitchen when company is coming over!

73
Pam August 24, 2012 at 4:39 am

Usually I am frantically trying to straighten up the kitchen desk top and the island top….it is usually piled with papers and “stuff” that seems to end up there when no one wants to put it in it’s regular spot or doesn’t have a spot. My husband would love to have this vacuum as he is the one who usually does the floors! Hope this is a winner!

74
mustlovedawgs August 24, 2012 at 4:40 am

Company coming? Dog and cat hair dancin’ on th rugs?
#1. Ignore hair. Clean off kitchen table and counters.
#2. Ignore hair. Wipe down bathroom.
#3. Still time? Hand pick-up visible clumps of said hair. :P

PS
Love the pictures of your pups!

75
Lawrie H. August 24, 2012 at 4:42 am

I clean up the kitchen first, since that is where everyone always hangs out. Vacuuming is a close second because that makes the most visual impact. How cool would it be if I could do both at once!

76
Sue K August 24, 2012 at 4:47 am

Always the bathroom. I have 3 dogs so I’m constantly vacumming. Winning this would be a dream!

77
Harmony B August 24, 2012 at 4:48 am

I dont really clean one room first, I run around putting whatever I can away.

78
Kathy Miller August 24, 2012 at 4:48 am

This would be great since I have 3 dogs and vacuuming is what I hate most!

79
Kathy Miller August 24, 2012 at 4:51 am

But I would do the vacuuming first if company was coming as I always have plenty of hair around. LOL

80
Lisa F August 24, 2012 at 4:49 am

Bathrooms get cleaned first, assuming the living room and kitchen are already clean. Floors come last, but that’s an absolute necessity if company is a-coming!

81
Leslie S. M. August 24, 2012 at 4:53 am

Mmmmmm… waking up to delightful robotic vacuum cleaner lines. Like a dream come true.

82
Mindi Schatz August 24, 2012 at 4:55 am

I usually use a swiffer over the hardwood floors just before company comes over. I love how your pups always smile for the camera!

83
Pam H August 24, 2012 at 4:57 am

Wow, that looks awesome! First thing I do is make sure the kitchen looks and smells fresh.

84
Tiffany August 24, 2012 at 4:57 am

I need this! The first thing I clean is the living room, where we spend most time

85
Melanie Bebler August 24, 2012 at 5:01 am

I always vacuum the hardwood floors first, then clean the bathroom.

86
Katherine R. August 24, 2012 at 5:01 am

Hide clutter/clean bathrooom

87
kinj August 24, 2012 at 5:02 am

the living/dining room is the main part of our house so that has to be cleaned but also the bathroom has to be touched up too… fresh towel, check the tp etc… thanks for the giveaway

88
Ellen ♥ Cardmonkey August 24, 2012 at 5:02 am

OK, first things first — I NEED at NEAT-O, ’cause I’m not. When company is coming over (which is now rare because — well, see the first statement), I straighten the living room, which is combined with the dining room. But I CLEAN the bathroom, especially the toilet and sink. YUCK, I hate going into someone’s house and seeing gunk. Like at my house. Can you please get that robot cleaning lady like George Jetson had? I need one of those. Oh, one who can cook too. And push the button on my Neato.

Thank you for your honest review. Howie and Miley seem to approve too.

Ellen ♥ CardMonkey

89
Sarah M. August 24, 2012 at 5:02 am

First order of business is always vacuuming the oodles of cat hair in the house. If I don’t vacuum every day, it gets out of control. This robotic vacuum would be a lifesaver!

90
Becky August 24, 2012 at 5:06 am

My full bath always comes first, then my kitchen, dining room, and living room since you can see all 3 from the living room. This vacuum would be a great thing to win. My back is killing me when I get done running mine. My schnoodle dog would enjoy chasing it around too. Thanks for the chance to win. Hugs, Becky

91
chris August 24, 2012 at 5:07 am

I watch my grandchildren while my daughter is working so he first thing I would do is pick up all the clutter from the living room floor. (baby toys, books, puffs, crackers etc.) We are in need of a new sweeper. Ours is on its last legs and oh so heavy. This vacuum would be a blessing for this tired grandma.

92
Tobie H August 24, 2012 at 5:08 am

I clean the guest bathroom, vacuum the living room to remove cat hair and clean the kitchen. All essential.

93
Joan August 24, 2012 at 5:09 am

I always start with the kitchen. so this vacuum would be perfect…getting the rest of the house cleaned up!

94
Vicki mc August 24, 2012 at 5:13 am

The first place I head is the bathroom!!!

95
lMaHoneyBee August 24, 2012 at 5:16 am

That is SO AWESOME!!! I might have to get a mini-schnauzer sticker for mine.

96
Tracy O August 24, 2012 at 5:16 am

The bathrooms and kitchen. Especially the kitchen floor as it is an ancient mustard yellow lineolium that seems to attract dirt like it is going out of style. With 2 tweens (plus the neighborhood kids) of my own and 5 nieces and nephews ages 3 – 6, and a chocolate lab puppy in and out of my house constantly there is alot of dirt coming in. The vacuum would be a miracle worker for my mudroom though as the previous house owner thought it smart to put a rug down in the mudroom, we have yet to update that room and I just can’t keep up with the vacuuming schedule!

Thanks so much for the chance to win.

97
Ashley August 24, 2012 at 5:16 am

Hmmm, it’s a cross between the bathroom and the front hall.

98
Julie August 24, 2012 at 5:17 am

Whether or not company is coming, my floors get a daily vacuuming. In my opinion, when the floors aren’t clean the whole house looks dirty. I am so in to clean floors that all my visitors immediately say, “I would eat off your floors!” I am a vacuum queen and would love to welcome NEATO XV-21 into my home! What a great giveaway!

99
Diana August 24, 2012 at 5:18 am

I always clean the bathrooms first! I hate to vacuum so this is perfect! Thanks for the giveaway!

100
Bobbi Grant August 24, 2012 at 5:20 am

I would love one of these vacuum’s. We have only one dog but our dashing is long enough to be two. The first thing I touch up for company is great room and the on to the kitchen. Enjoy your blog and trips.

101
Kim August 24, 2012 at 5:21 am

The kitchen! It’s always a mess… But then it’s the foyer since its usually filled with dog hair and dirt/dust from bringing in the dog and whatever he tracks in

102
Dee August 24, 2012 at 5:21 am

I have two Siberian Huskies and I vacuum at least twice a day! This would be really cool to own as I’d be able to vacuum when I’m not home! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

103
karen August 24, 2012 at 5:22 am

I always start at the front of the house and work my way back, although sometimes i regret that decision when i have a limited amount of cleaning time, as the kitchen/bathroom are the last rooms on the list, and sometimes i run out of time to dedicate to them.

104
Mindy Grant August 24, 2012 at 5:22 am

Awesome vacuum cleaner, thank you so much for the giveaway! When company is coming over, I run around the house like a mad woman, cleaning every place they will see – living room, kitchen, & bathroom. It would be so awesome to have a vacuum cleaning my floors while I do other stuff like wash dishes, etc. That would save me so much stress!

105
Mary Beth August 24, 2012 at 5:24 am

The bathroom is always first, everything else can get stuffed in the den! :)

106
Fresh August 24, 2012 at 5:25 am

O, please, let it be me. Great blog, guys! Best regards, all the way from Slovenia! :)

107
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 5:25 am

I clean the Living Room 1st with the kitchen a close 2nd. I could SO use a little vacuum helper, LOL. Thanks for the giveaway.

108
Melanie August 24, 2012 at 5:28 am

I always clean up the clutter (including the cat toys that the cats have scattered around the house), then the kitchen, bathroom, and last is to vacuum (to pick up anything that fell before). Thanks for the giveaway!

109
Jan August 24, 2012 at 5:30 am

I always start cleaning in the kitchen, then the bathrooms. I have wanted a robot since I was a very little girl! Who would have thought I might actually get one?

110
Patti Smith August 24, 2012 at 5:31 am

The first thing I clean when unexpected company is on the way is the living room/den area bc it’s the first area of my house that people see when they enter our house. We have a German Shepherd and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel so there is ALWAYS dog hair to be found! I would love to give this Neato machine a whirl; I remember the old days of the Roomba vaccuums…my mother-in-law had one of those but I don’t think it was near as good of a machine as this one sounds!

111
Deirdre Watts August 24, 2012 at 5:33 am

The kitchen….first the countertop clutter, then the sink and then sweep the floor. Love this giveaway. Thank you!

112
Adrienne Seal August 24, 2012 at 5:33 am

Having 2 cats and a dog I usually get to work in my living room and a vacuum like that would be a wonderful time saver!

113
Janet August 24, 2012 at 5:33 am

My old vac is so heavy for me to carry up and down the stairs. This would be great and a time saver to boot.

114
Leigh Ann August 24, 2012 at 5:35 am

definitely the living room! first room everyone sees.

115
Rachel A. August 24, 2012 at 5:36 am

I usually do the dusting and wiping first then vacuum last!

116
Diana August 24, 2012 at 5:37 am

I pick up in the living room. awesome vacuum!

117
Carolyn August 24, 2012 at 5:39 am

My kitchen. This is where we all usually hang out.

118
rachel August 24, 2012 at 5:40 am

Definitely the bathroom first, then the kitchen. Love that vacuum…thanks for the chance to win!

119
Becky | Becky Bakes August 24, 2012 at 5:41 am

The living room floor…it’s usually scattered with toys!

120
Susan S. August 24, 2012 at 5:43 am

Hmmm – it would have to be the dust off things! I sweep and vacuum floors all the time but dusting not so much.

121
Susan August 24, 2012 at 5:43 am

I start with the family room because it is always the easiest and I can easily check it off the list.

122
Nicole G August 24, 2012 at 5:47 am

Gotta clean the bathroom when people are coming over! But I have carpet in that room too so a new vac would be nice. Thx for the chance – great giveaway!

123
marywithgarden August 24, 2012 at 5:48 am

Dust and the bathroom! I use orange oil to dust and it makes the house smell so good and clean.

124
Leslie August 24, 2012 at 5:48 am

I have a dog that’s blowing a coat right now, my husband and I both work, and two youngish kids that makes me think I NEED THIS!!!

125
Paula August 24, 2012 at 5:49 am

I always clean my cat box first, then clear off my table!

126
Jean Punt August 24, 2012 at 5:49 am

Boy could I use that! One of those ‘wish I had thought of that one’ ideas!

127
Donna August 24, 2012 at 5:49 am

My husband just said he wanted to research these. Thanks for the review and the awesome giveaway!! Keeping my fingers crossed that we win!!

128
katie August 24, 2012 at 5:49 am

I always go straight to the bathrooms. Thanks for the chance to win! I need this!

129
Kacey August 24, 2012 at 5:49 am

I always start with the kitchen! This would be a great multi-tasking tool tho, love it! P.s. you’re very lucky to have dogs who aren’t afraid of the vacuum!! :o)

130
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 5:51 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming over, are the surfaces in the living room. I make sure the knitting, the books, the mail, and the dog toys have all found their ways back to where they belong. After that, of course, I’d vacuum!

131
Amy Cooper August 24, 2012 at 5:52 am

The first thing I clean when we have company coming over is the bathroom. It seems to stay clean longer than any other room, so it’s a good place to start. I always vacuum last, that way it looks fresh and inviting when someone comes in. Between the dog and the kids, it’s hard to stay that way :)

132
Angela Carter August 24, 2012 at 5:52 am

The first thing I clean when guest come over is the kitchen. Its the first room people generally congregate in in my house so I make sure everything is scrubbed and sparkling.

133
Shawn August 24, 2012 at 5:53 am

The floors and kitchen. We seem to hang out in the kitchen anyways.

134
Andie August 24, 2012 at 5:54 am

Oh, this looks awesome! I usually start cleaning the floors in the kitchen as that is where everybody comes in at. Having laminate floors and a big dog, there is always hair. This would be so awesome!

135
Beth S August 24, 2012 at 5:55 am

I always clean the living room first. Pick up any clutter and dog toys and put them away.

136
*christine* August 24, 2012 at 5:55 am

Ha! We always divide and conquer the vacuuming and a quick run through of the bathrooms!
And if there are dishes in the sink – and there ususally is – we have to do those quickly too.

I’d love if someone/something could vacuum while I sleep!

137
Kerry Lewarne August 24, 2012 at 5:55 am

I love this!!!!!! I always vacuum my living room first. My carpet needs to be replaced!!

138
Kim G August 24, 2012 at 5:56 am

Bathroom first, then kitchen, then living room.

139
Becky D. August 24, 2012 at 5:59 am

This would come in so handy with a child on the way! I’m sure my husband would think so as well. The first thing I clean when company is coming over is the rolling piles of black pet hair in every corner of the house! With 3 black pets it can easily be a daily task but we’ve given up until the weekend or when company comes over.

140
Karen Pelkey August 24, 2012 at 6:00 am

Wow, what a fantastic giveaway. My hole house is carpet and I would save so much time to have such a luxury item. More time for crafting and fun stuff. Good bye allergies. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful product.

141
Dawn Lepper August 24, 2012 at 6:00 am

I actually vacuum because I have a dog that is a major shedder. :)

142
Shannon August 24, 2012 at 6:01 am

Those puppies are soooo cute! I’d love to win a Neato so that I could gift it to my parents! My dad would love having something vacuum for him and I’d love for him to be able to get help this would provide…

143
Tina August 24, 2012 at 6:02 am

The first thing that I do is get a look of terror in my eyes, the kind that makes grown men (husband) and 6’3″ and 6’1″ teenage sons weak in their knees. Then comes the delegating of tasks- clean the powder room, quick pick up the stuff around the family room, living room, dining room and kitchen. Dust said rooms quickly with a little glove-like duster. Vacuum said rooms. Finally, clean the powder room and pray that the boys’ bathroom isn’t disgusting. Sometimes just a quick pickup and vacuuming is all that it takes to make a house look neat and tidy. Overall, though, I have learned that when people come to visit, they are there to see us and not the house, so I have gotten better about not having a coronary when someone drops in and I focus on totally enjoying my guests. Always good to have a nut roll or other baked good in the freezer for a quick thaw out just for those times!

144
Lindsay R August 24, 2012 at 6:03 am

usually the kitchen..always dishes piled up :)

145
Julie August 24, 2012 at 6:07 am

Definitely the bathrooms!

146
Cathy OConnell August 24, 2012 at 6:07 am

with two dogs, also, that spend most of their time in our family room, that is the carpet I am always vaccuming….but I can’t get to it everyday. This little machine would be a real treat for our family!!

147
Rachel August 24, 2012 at 6:10 am

After picking up things, the first thing I clean is the kitchen floor! Three kids and no pets makes for a very messy floor!

148
Roxanne August 24, 2012 at 6:11 am

Bathrooms first, dust, vacuum living room & stairs! I love the idea of Mr. MagNeato helping with more than half the chores! As always Amanda, thanks for your great blog (my favorite!) & awesome giveaways : )

149
barbara n August 24, 2012 at 6:12 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming over is the bathrooms!! I would be very embarrassed if the toilet bowl or sink were dirty!

150
Mindy August 24, 2012 at 6:12 am

The first place I clean when company comes is the bathrooms! I hate cleaning the bathrooms, so when we don’t have company, I don’t put too much work into them. So, that’s the first place I clean.

151
Edward August 24, 2012 at 6:14 am

I don’t clean (thank goodness for housekeeping). The foyer is my pet-peeve for visitors.

152
Em August 24, 2012 at 6:14 am

The entry hall.

153
Cretia August 24, 2012 at 6:14 am

bathroom, then den & kitchen…

154
Meg l. August 24, 2012 at 6:15 am

I have two furry dogs so I always vacuum and dust!

155
Solange August 24, 2012 at 6:15 am

The living room, where everyone gathers. Spouse never uses coasters!

156
Lauren @ Healthy Food For Living August 24, 2012 at 6:16 am

The absolute first thing I clean when company is coming over are the floors! I typically clean the kitchen as I cook, so that’s usually in pretty good shape. Having a cat and a dog leads to a ton of pet fur accumulation on the floors, and this vacuum would be a life-saver!

157
Heidi Gore August 24, 2012 at 6:16 am

When company is coming I start at the coffee table to clear the clutter, then sprint to the bathroom to make sure it is clean enough, then to the kitchen to tidy up and load the dishwasher or make a quick snack. This vacuum would be perfect as my back has degenerative disk disease and it is painful to lug my upright around. Would be thrilled to win!!

158
Kelly August 24, 2012 at 6:17 am

I go straight for the couch because my 125 lb. yellow lab thinks it his bed! He sheds so much I have to vacuum everyday, so the Neato XV-21 would change my life!!

159
Aidan Drew August 24, 2012 at 6:17 am

I just started ASU, and I think after a few months our dorm will certainly need this! I don’t like to clean, but I always make my bed.

160
adelle August 24, 2012 at 6:17 am

the bathroom is usually first…and then the kitchen floor. sometimes its hard to get to the vacuuming, so this would be awesome!

161
Talya August 24, 2012 at 6:18 am

I always clean whatever my guests will potentially see! Living room, kitchen, bathroom, FLOORS! With 2 dogs that shed like crazy, floors are my biggest concert and this would be a life saver!!

162
Aimee M August 24, 2012 at 6:18 am

We clean the kitchen first because that’s generally where we hang out when company is over!

163
Kelly August 24, 2012 at 6:19 am

Ohmygosh I would love one of those! I hate to vacuum! I don’t have any pets – it’s my kids that make the mess. So the first thing I’m usually cleaning before company arrives is the guest bathroom and the kitchen!

164
Karen August 24, 2012 at 6:20 am

The bathroom, of course … and then the living room, kitchen and it goes from there. I guess the next best thing to having a housekeeper would be having a vacuum that does the work itself! Love!

165
Lynne August 24, 2012 at 6:20 am

Kitchen – and bathroom

166
Katherine August 24, 2012 at 6:23 am

I always clean up the baby’s toys and straighten up the living room first. Thanks so much for the giveaway…I hate vacuuming!

167
Melissa August 24, 2012 at 6:23 am

Kitchen!
Thank you.

168
Kate August 24, 2012 at 6:24 am

I start in the living room and leave the kitchen for last since it will get messed up getting ready anyway.

169
Hilly August 24, 2012 at 6:24 am

The Neato sounds angelic to me!!! I already envision it in action. I also think that your sticker should come one all of them.

We live on a farm and have a large garden, and it is so enjoyable to have people over to help eat up the harvest. Yet, most of the time, as they are leaving their homes, I am still chopping and stirring, and I find myself wishing that I had more time to clean up. Generally this thinking goes on while I am wildly pushing the vacuum around … mumbling little curses to the cats for their carefree bohemian lifestyles…and to my sneakers that just tracked dirt in when I went to get the basil as the tomatoes were bubbling. Meanwhile our guests are now driving up the driveway and I shove the by vacuum back in the closet, my “kitty voice” returns, I dim the lights and think, “Hey, the floor is clean, I love having people over!”

I am certain the Neato is made for someone like me. I am certain that I would be just as wild about it as you are. Can you run it all day long? LOL

170
Audra W. August 24, 2012 at 6:25 am

Bathroom first, then kitchen. Our short-hair wienie dog leaves so much hair it would great to let this take care of the floors while I do the rest. Awesome give-away!

171
Darlene August 24, 2012 at 6:25 am

The kitchen is where everyone usually gathers, so that is first!

172
Southern Gal August 24, 2012 at 6:28 am

Everyone enters our house through the back door which leads into the laundry room and kitchen. I hit those two rooms before any other.

Looks like a neat vacuum! thanks for the chance.

173
Erin Grizzard August 24, 2012 at 6:28 am

This thing sounds amazing! I actually got excited about it just reading your post! I always make sure to clean the window on my front door when company is coming….first impressions ;)

174
Jill Herington August 24, 2012 at 6:30 am

The living room and bathroom. Hope I win!

175
Krysta August 24, 2012 at 6:31 am

First thing I do is vacuum the floors…and the couch that our dog has made his own!

176
Sandy_in_MD August 24, 2012 at 6:32 am

Wow! That is one nifty vacumn cleaner! For me, it’s the bathroom that gets a quick touch up, then I move on to the family room.

Thanks for sponsoring this great giveaway.

177
Hannah August 24, 2012 at 6:33 am

Bathroom first! I have long hair and that’s where the shedding is the most obvious!

178
Heather K. August 24, 2012 at 6:33 am

How cool is that? We have two dogs & two dogs inside our home, so having something like this would be awesome. Oh, to answer your question: When company is coming, usually the first thing I do is start cleaning off our coffee table and dining table – they both tend to be used as catch-alls!

179
lori peuterbaugh August 24, 2012 at 6:33 am

we have been looking at these types of vacuums and haven’t taken the leap yet….thanks for the detailed reviews and testimonial. It looks like Howie & Miley like it also!!! Thanks for the giveaway! I am ready to start the neatly while I tidy the bathroom or make some treats when company is coming over! Thanks again Amanda!

180
Kimberly August 24, 2012 at 6:33 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom since it’s the one my oldest son uses! Then I vacuum the living room, which honestly it needs to be vacuumed everyday with 2 young boys.

Thanks for such a great blog and for this great chance to win such a fantastic product.

181
Cindy August 24, 2012 at 6:33 am

I always start in the entryway and living room. Kitchen, hallway and bathroom come next. This vacuum would be so handy!

182
Krys Kolivras Simmons August 24, 2012 at 6:33 am

I always check the spare bathroom when I find out someone is coming to visit! I like it to be spotless and shiny!

183
Debbie Chapman August 24, 2012 at 6:34 am

WOW! I have been looking at one these for years but have never seen one put lines in the carpet. You have me sold! Thank you for the chance to win one!

184
Debbie August 24, 2012 at 6:34 am

Wow that vacuum really works great! I always wondered if they worked. I would be so happy to win this. We have a schnoodle “Lola” and it doesn’t seem like she shed much, but when I empty the vacuum, there is a lot of hair! Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas, recipes and pictures.

185
Chris Taylor August 24, 2012 at 6:34 am

My brain is cleaning the house even when I’m not home; it’s nice to know that I could actually get some work done, even if ‘all’ of me isn’t there! Glad to know it picks up pet hair.

186
Kallie August 24, 2012 at 6:36 am

The living room! Always vacuum because of the dog hair!

187
April Merrick August 24, 2012 at 6:36 am

The first thing we clean when company is coming over is all the toys and clutter that accumulates in our living room!

188
Sara August 24, 2012 at 6:37 am

I clean the bathroom and the floors. I agree with you about those lines… They always mean ‘clean’ to me too!!

189
Leah August 24, 2012 at 6:37 am

Countertops then the floors! Sweep, mop, vacuum…those are a must before I have anyone coming over. Maybe a little lemon scent fragrance in the air to top it all off!

190
Nikki August 24, 2012 at 6:37 am

We always clean rhe kitchen first.

191
C Zapolski August 24, 2012 at 6:39 am

The stairs off the foyer! The are carpeted in black and they show dog hair unless cleaned regularly. From there, I vacuum the foyer – that seems to collect dog hair as well.

192
mary August 24, 2012 at 6:39 am

This looks fabulous! Vacuum while i’m sleeping sounds perfect!
My first clean-up is the front hall – shoes are all over and the table collects all sorts of junk. It’s a quick clean and instant gratification.
Thanks for this fantastic opportunity.
Love your blog!

193
Fernie August 24, 2012 at 6:40 am

Floors first, then Sofa gotta get the doggie hair off. Bathrooms and then the kitchen ( it is always clean, so that is why it is last) Not that I dont cook.. but I am always cleaning up after I cook.

194
Melissa B August 24, 2012 at 6:40 am

The carpet with it’s husky/Shepard fur, then on to the kitchen!

195
Jen R August 24, 2012 at 6:42 am

I clean the living room first. Bathroom and kitchen come next. This is an incredible giveaway, I don’t think I have ever wanted to win anything as much as this! It’s so cool, like a little robot or something. Thanks for the chance!

196
lisa August 24, 2012 at 6:44 am

I would say the living room. Picking up stuff that Ive been lazy about haha

197
Valerie August 24, 2012 at 6:44 am

I clean the bathroom first and then sweep everything. I would love to win this for my elderly mother. She would love it!

198
CindyML August 24, 2012 at 6:44 am

the first thing I clean when company comes over is I swiffered up the dog hair from my wood floors. We have dark wood floors and two dogs and a German shepherd dog that comes on playdates several times a week. I can swiffer and 20 minutes later that hair just reappears – like it’s coming out of the woodwork! This would be a great gadget to have. Thanks for the chance to win!

199
RUTHANN August 24, 2012 at 6:45 am

The guest bathroom and the kitchen floors. thanks for the chance to win this great product!

200
Jessia M. August 24, 2012 at 6:45 am

I always clean the living room since that is the first place they see.

Great giveaway! Thanks!!!

201
Lisa August 24, 2012 at 6:46 am

The first thing I do before company come over is vacuum because we have 2 cats and a 2 year old who is always throwing her snacks or food on the floor. I vacuum almost every day, which is such a pain. This robot vacuum will be such a great thing to have. At home moms need a break sometimes. One less thing to do is always great.

202
Jill August 24, 2012 at 6:47 am

My kitchen gets cleaned first since that is our main dumping area. Then the bathroom and family room.

203
KellyM August 24, 2012 at 6:48 am

The absolute first thing I clean when company comes over is the downstairs bathroom – yuk! that leads to the hall floor which leads to the kitchen, etc etc etc!!!!!! This would be perfect for my two boston terrors because (as you know!) their pet hair is EVERYWHERE!!!! :)

204
Melissa M August 24, 2012 at 6:48 am

It depends on how much notice I have before they arrive but, like many others, the bathroom gets a wipe down then, hopefully, the dust broom goes around the perimeter of every room to get the dog hair!

Thanks for the chance to win!!! I would love this because I HATE the vacuum that someone gave me for a house warming gift, but I’m too cheap to actually buy one that I would dislike less!

205
Monique August 24, 2012 at 6:49 am

The first thing I clean is the family room and then the kitchen because everyone always seems to gather in those 2 areas.

206
Christina August 24, 2012 at 6:49 am

I start with the bathroom. The vacuuming is the last thing I do. Our house is on the market so I try to leave it with undisturbed lines on the carpet. I vacuum several times a day. I’d love to have this little guy’s help!

207
Jenny August 24, 2012 at 6:49 am

First the main bathroom toilet ;) but I always vacuum too because that makes the house look clean (even when it’s really not)!

Thanks Amanda!

208
Samantha August 24, 2012 at 6:49 am

I have 4 dogs and I feel like every cleaning venture starts with vacuuming! I need one of these to run everyday in my house! LOL.

209
Jenny August 24, 2012 at 6:49 am

I always load the dishwasher and vacuum!

210
Laura August 24, 2012 at 6:51 am

I pick up any clutter first, then I clean the kitchen and bathroom.

The vacuum looks so much cooler with the sticker. ;)

211
Sarah N August 24, 2012 at 6:52 am

The first thing I clean is is the living room. We lived with some friends for a couple of months and the first thing she always cleaned was HER bedroom – and usually didn’t make it to other more important rooms. Cracked me up!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

212
Kayla August 24, 2012 at 6:52 am

The kitchen. It’s usually a mess!

213
Tiffani August 24, 2012 at 6:53 am

The dishes!

214
Linda August 24, 2012 at 6:53 am

I always begin with the kitchen and then vacuum the floors.

215
Katherine Wall August 24, 2012 at 6:53 am

Wow! That looks great! I put it on my wishlist! Thank you!

216
Marci August 24, 2012 at 6:54 am

I always begin by dusting in the living room at the back of the house and work my way to the front.

217
Lea Dorrett August 24, 2012 at 6:54 am

The Kitchen! It’s the first room you walk into and it’s the catch all for everything! How did you ever get your dogs to model with the vaccuum?

218
Stephanie August 24, 2012 at 6:55 am

I definitely vacuum first and then hit the bathrooms. Thanks for the giveaway!

219
Shelli August 24, 2012 at 6:56 am

The kitchen/ dining area. It’s the first room you see in our house and it’s always a hot mess. Then it’s picking up baby doll accessories across the living room and making sure the bathroom doesn’t resemble a public restroom. Ha!

220
Deborah August 24, 2012 at 6:56 am

My floors! With 2 kids, 2 cats, a dog and a husband who never takes his shoes off, my floors are always dirty!

221
sonia troche August 24, 2012 at 6:57 am

My floors are always the first thing I clean before people come over! :)

222
Bernadette James August 24, 2012 at 6:57 am

First plzcd I straightdn up is the famuly room.

223
sue imming August 24, 2012 at 6:57 am

Wow, I’m impressed, do I ever need this!!! 2 floor house and 1 vaccum, up and down the steps and I’m getting too old for this. I need this badly.

224
Lauren D August 24, 2012 at 6:57 am

I always clean my floors before someone comes over, with a lab and a toddler it’s a must! This would be perfect for us, especially since baby #2 will be here in just a few weeks!!

225
Analisa W. August 24, 2012 at 6:58 am

Bathrooms! I hate the thought that someone would lift the toilet seat and find dried stains from my 5 year old’s miss fire ;) I would love to own one of these vacuums! Thanks for the great giveaway!!

226
Kristin August 24, 2012 at 6:58 am

I always clean the bathroom first. It’s the only room that guests are in alone and have a minute to look around.

227
chelsea August 24, 2012 at 6:59 am

My kitchen floor. It is gross, old, white tile that never stays clean. Someday it will be gone…

228
Darcie August 24, 2012 at 7:00 am

The kitchen and bathrooms! What a great product!

BATHROOM… Can’t leave that a mess!

230
Emily Roberts August 24, 2012 at 7:01 am

This is a really great giveaway! I have 2 dogs and a cat. My husband would love it if the vacuum did the work for him! :)

231
Lindsay Butler August 24, 2012 at 7:01 am

I always make sire not to have dirty dishes in my sink.

232
Tina August 24, 2012 at 7:02 am

The first thing I do is vacuum up the dog hair. I try to do it everyday but I do and extra swip when I know someone is coming over.

Timorah August 24, 2012 at 7:02 am

This sounds amazing! When company is coming I start with the kitchen! It is the center of our home and often gathers clutter – shoes, mail, etc. I feel better when It is orderly. Thanks for the opportunity!

235
Terry August 24, 2012 at 7:02 am

Vacuum the red Oriental rug in the den (you would think it was made from Jack Russell fur)!!
WDE!!!!

236
bevin August 24, 2012 at 7:03 am

I always clean the living room first, and then the bathroom.

Awesome giveaway!

237
Pam August 24, 2012 at 7:03 am

I almost always clean the Kitchen first because thats where your quests gather, then I run quick into the quest bath and wipe it clean.

238
Carlajinar August 24, 2012 at 7:03 am

This looks awesome

239
Kathy Moran August 24, 2012 at 7:04 am

Oh my… I would love this…. I would tackle the whole house with this… thanks so much for this chance for the wonderful product… great giveaways… you rock!!!!

240
Kindel August 24, 2012 at 7:05 am

Yes, yes, yes! I have a cat and dog so we ALWAYS have little furball tumbleweeds all over the hardwood floors. I would love for a machine to chase those around instead of me! :)

When company comes over, I usually start in the kitchen because that’s the first room guests see!

241
Julie August 24, 2012 at 7:05 am

The first thing I clean when company comes over is the living room. It’s the first room they see and if I can keep them confined there then I don’t have to clean as much in the other rooms. :)

242
Michelle August 24, 2012 at 7:06 am

The Living Room is a must! That is where everything seems to STOP and never get’s to it’s proper place! Thanks again Amanda for an awesome giveaway! :)

243
Alison August 24, 2012 at 7:06 am

I usually start with the family room.

244
Lori Sullivan August 24, 2012 at 7:08 am

I would love to not have to vacuum. I have 2 kids and a dog. Needless to say we track in a lot.

245
Debra Parker August 24, 2012 at 7:09 am

The first room I clean when company is coming is the family room, where I do most of my sewing. I need a good vacuum to pick up all those little threads and dropped pins out of the carpet! Thanks for the opportunity!

246
Beth in SC August 24, 2012 at 7:09 am

Oh my gosh. I love freshly cleaned floors in the morning. Well… I would if I knew what felt like. :) Love the review and I’m crossing my fingers for a Neato Win! :)

247
Luann p August 24, 2012 at 7:09 am

Clean the living room first then bathroom….. :)

248
Rebecca August 24, 2012 at 7:09 am

The first thing I do is wash any dishes in the kitchen sink.

249
Imelda August 24, 2012 at 7:09 am

Definitely the bathrooms! Would be great to win this, I’ve had a Roomba for 5 yrs. and it just went out.

250
Erin August 24, 2012 at 7:09 am

Our kitchen family room has 4 doors!! lots of door to the space we entertain in the most! SO those floors our the first thing I have to clean before company!! then check the 1/2 bath… with 3 kids you never know!!! Great giveaway- I have been shopping around for a vacuum! and was checking this out!

251
Kristen Cunningham August 24, 2012 at 7:10 am

I grab all of the clutter in the room by the front door and throw it into the closet! I would love this vacuum because it is so small and I have no place to keep my other one on the first level!

252
Dar August 24, 2012 at 7:10 am

First thing I clean…floors! Being a mommy to a fur baby it seems vacuuming is a must! Otherwise, the fur will fly! I’m also an allergy sufferer and anything to aide in that is a win-win!

253
Cindy August 24, 2012 at 7:10 am

The kitchen and dining room for sure. My daughter has two cats and a dog and I am constantly vacuuming—even when there is no company on the way. This vacuum looks neat-o.

254
Jamee @ A New Kind of Normal August 24, 2012 at 7:11 am

We have two dogs as well and are ALWAYS having to vacuum up the tumbleweeds of fun that seem to always exist in our house! This would be AWESOME!

255
Jamee @ A New Kind of Normal August 24, 2012 at 7:12 am

Forgot to fully answer the question – vacuum the living area thanks to the pooches!

256
Kim Thorne August 24, 2012 at 7:17 am

When company is coming each member of my family mans there “battle station”. My daughter gets the clutter into baskets for each family member and puts it on their rooms. My husband hits the grocery store to shop for food and drinks. Son number one dusts and vacuums. Son number 2 cleans the bathroom. I tackle the kitchen floor, counters and sink while waiting on food to come in. Then I prepare food while everyone else finishes cleaning and getting ready. This vacuum would really help since son 1 is headed to college and we will miss his vacuuming!

257
Elizabeth August 24, 2012 at 7:17 am

I have been wishing for a vacuum robot for YEARS! So excited! I always clean the bathroom first and pick up toys. But the floors are saved for last so they are as pristine as can be when people walk in. (I like seeing minimal footprints on freshly vacuumed floors, don’t you?)

258
bakingblonde August 24, 2012 at 7:18 am

I would clean our main bathroom and our living room first!

259
Lindsay August 24, 2012 at 7:18 am

The first thing we do is pick up the living room!

260
Michael Cassell August 24, 2012 at 7:18 am

Kitchen because we enjoy to cook and mess it up even more.

261
Danielle August 24, 2012 at 7:19 am

First I vacuum the cat hair off the couch, then the kitchen, then bathrooms, then floors if I still have time.

262
Mary Katharin August 24, 2012 at 7:20 am

Den then living room and kitchen

263
Patricia Williams August 24, 2012 at 7:20 am

The kitchen first and then the downstairs bathroom. I have 2 little guys so it gets cleaned daily away, but touched up for company.

264
Kelly B. August 24, 2012 at 7:20 am

I always start with the guest bathroom; it’s quick and easy to clean. Thanks for the giveaway!

265
Risë August 24, 2012 at 7:20 am

I always start with the bathroom and then straighten and fluff all the cushions in the living room. I then grab the swiffer duster and do a quick swipe around the main living area. Lastly I pick up clutter on the kitchen counter. My husband (who is our house cleaner) is always complaining about the cat hair he gets up every time he vacuums and mops. This little vacuum would be a life saver for him.

266
Sara August 24, 2012 at 7:20 am

I always clean the kitchen first because company always seems to congregate there over good food and wine.

267
sandy morris August 24, 2012 at 7:20 am

I vacuum my family room first, then dining, then kitchen, and then bedrooms. i would love this very cool machine

268
Em August 24, 2012 at 7:21 am

The clean up any clutter then do a quick wipe down of the guest bathroom!

269
KerryH August 24, 2012 at 7:21 am

I’m so excited to enter!! I need this!! My floors are definitely the first thing I clean when company is coming. I have two dogs that manage to track in dirt from outside, even after wiping off their paws. When the floors are freshly vacuumed, it gives the entire home an overall clean feel. :)

270
Niki F August 24, 2012 at 7:22 am

I always clean the toilets first!

271
ruth a. kelly August 24, 2012 at 7:22 am

I start with the floors. If the floors are clean it makes the whole house sparkle! Company coming – grab the vacuum and get that layer of dust and of course dog hair that’s on the carpet and the wood and tile floors. Wow, this NEATO would make the job sooooo much easier. Swish the commodes, micro cloth the flat surfaces and voila – who knew a vintage-clean house could be that easy – and with a whole new and modern cleaning device! And with a stay-in-bed stew in the oven, ready to serve, your company will never want to leave!! Neat -o!!!!

272
Mason August 24, 2012 at 7:22 am

I clean the bathroom and make sure I get the switch plates and door knobs and the door jambs. Then the kitchen! Thanks for the give away! Keep up the good work.

273
Lynette August 24, 2012 at 7:22 am

Definitely the living room since that’s where we would hang out. Then, the kitchen because you can see the kitchen from the living room.

274
Sara K. August 24, 2012 at 7:23 am

I usually clean the dining room first – so we’ll have places to sit and eat!

275
Lee Anne August 24, 2012 at 7:23 am

I clean the kitchen first because it’s the first thing they see!

276
Isabel Warrell August 24, 2012 at 7:23 am

Honestly I clean the bathrooms first. But since I have a dog too no cleaning is complete without a hitting the carpets. Thanks for the giveaway!

277
Jane Toms August 24, 2012 at 7:23 am

I start by picking up the obvious clutter then make sure the bathrooms are clean. It would be great to have a robot to do the floors though!

278
Vicki August 24, 2012 at 7:24 am

My mudroom and big kitchen as that’s where the dog hair starts and blows in through the house it seems….

279
Katie August 24, 2012 at 7:24 am

I clean the toilets and bathrooms.

280
Candi August 24, 2012 at 7:24 am

The first thing I do when company is coming over…or heaven forbid someone rings the doorbell….is PANIC! I have 5…yes count ‘em, five cats! Needless to say, cat hair is on every single surface of my home! I think it would be quite amusing to watch the cats reaction’s to the Neato. They act like godzilla just walked in the door when I crank up the old hoover.

281
Julie August 24, 2012 at 7:25 am

Sweep the wood floors in the kitchen and then vacuum because I love to see those vacuum lines too!!

282
Kel August 24, 2012 at 7:26 am

Ha – definitely the bathrooms! And empty the garbage everywhere.

283
Heather D August 24, 2012 at 7:26 am

We have an island in our kitchen and it has become our drop-off spot for everything! It really collects a LOT of stuff so it’s always the first thing to clean. After that it’s the rest of the kitchen and of course the living room.
Thanks for a great giveaway!

284
Kayla August 24, 2012 at 7:26 am

The first thing is the floor. It’s always in need of vacuum especially with 2 toddlers at home.

285
Molly August 24, 2012 at 7:27 am

Ahhh the kitchen! With 3 little boys, you never know what might be on the floor or smeared on the chairs!

286
Vanessa August 24, 2012 at 7:27 am

I clean my kitchen first – it’s the room company first walk in to. I can’t have a bad impression right off the bat!

287
Rose August 24, 2012 at 7:27 am

Is the Neato for real? I would LUV to put it to the test in my living room!

288
Jules August 24, 2012 at 7:28 am

I first pick up all the dog toys! Then vacuum. I love this giveaway, thank you Amanda!

289
Gayla August 24, 2012 at 7:28 am

Love seeing those vacuum lines in the carpet, makes me feel like the entire house is clean!

290
Erin August 24, 2012 at 7:28 am

I always vacuum the carpet in our living room first! I love fresh vacuum lines :)

291
Sandy August 24, 2012 at 7:29 am

I clean the bathroom first. Then on to the rest of the house.

292
Thais August 24, 2012 at 7:31 am

When company is coming it’s always the bathrooms first, then the vacuuming. With the Neato I could truly multi-task and do two things at once!!! Wow. Thanks for the give-away Amanda. I do think every Neato should come standard with a Boston Terrier sticker.
Thais

293
Denisse August 24, 2012 at 7:31 am

I always make sure kitchen and bathroom are spotless…just like my momma taught me! And of course, the front entrance and living room (first impressions always count!). Hope I can win this, it will be nice for a change that after a long day at work and picking up the kid from child care, sports activities and whatnot and running ’round like all mommys do nowadays, you found that your living quarters are all clean. :)

294
Rene August 24, 2012 at 7:31 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming is the Family Room. That’s where we spend most of our time.

295
Debbie in S. Florida August 24, 2012 at 7:32 am

Ahhh, Amanda, you always have the best giveaways! I’d love to win this. I don’t have dogs, but I do have two kids, which is about the same, lol! Thanks for the chance. Love your red slipcovered sofa!

296
Sara K. D. August 24, 2012 at 7:32 am

Always clean the bathrooms first….nobody wants to see ‘science projects’.

297
Georgia August 24, 2012 at 7:32 am

The kids’ toys! What a great giveaway!

298
Connie K August 24, 2012 at 7:32 am

Wow, Neato!
The first thing I do when I have unexpected guests coming over is to do a quick pickup in the living room and dining room, since that is what people see when they first walk in. This usually means picking up all the baby toys, baby clothes, and other assorted baby paraphernalia that is usually scattered around when the baby is awake!
Thanks for the great giveaway!
Connie

299
Julie G August 24, 2012 at 7:33 am

I usually go for the kitchen – it’s so close to the entrance and when it’s clean, it looks really nice.

300
Melody August 24, 2012 at 7:33 am

wow! — What a marvelous invention this auto-vac is! Thank you for the chance to win one in this giveaway! Our lhasa-poo would think it’s a new toy to chase…
When I know company is coming, I vacuum the living room & make sure the dishes are washed.

301
kimber August 24, 2012 at 7:34 am

Bathrooms…ugh…I always feel like they need a touch up. :) Thanks for the great give away!

302
Justin August 24, 2012 at 7:34 am

I have company coming this weekend and I will be cleaning the Bathroom first!

303
Sandy W August 24, 2012 at 7:35 am

I always start with the kitchen, then the family room, then the bathroom. Oh, and have to sweep the front porch and wash the grand kid’s fingerprints off the front door, which is glass. Would be great to try one of these vacuums.

304
AshleyB August 24, 2012 at 7:35 am

I think it’s a toss up but 1. bathroom 2. kitchen 3. floors. Great giveaway!

305
Sarah August 24, 2012 at 7:37 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming is my kitchen counter. There is a spot where stuff collects (magazines, permission slips, etc), and when company comes it forces me to go through my “pile” and put things away.

306
Summer August 24, 2012 at 7:37 am

The bathroom. There is nothing worse than using someone else’s bathroom and feeling like you’ve witnessed something you shouldn’t have.

307
Wombatish August 24, 2012 at 7:37 am

Ahhh, I’ve wanted to try a robot vacuum for a while now, but balked at the start-up costs (I buy cheap(er) vacuums personally, still a fairly poor youngin’).

The first thing we clean is usually the carpets, lol. So bad about regular vacuuming. Either that or the bathroom, like you said!

308
Elizabeth August 24, 2012 at 7:38 am

Bathrooms are always the first thing I clean. It’s where people spend the most time on their own in your house so they can really see all your dirt! :)

309
Kara D August 24, 2012 at 7:38 am

I go straight for the bathroom, then to the floors!

310
Debi August 24, 2012 at 7:39 am

How awesome…….love it!!! The first thing I do is just check the kitchen and make sure nothing is a mess……then the bathroom. Oh – and if I win……where do I get one of those stickers???? ha ha It looks like it came with it. (and I think it should)

311
Carol Remy August 24, 2012 at 7:39 am

I hate to vacuum – – so I really need this. I hate struggling with the cord and dragging it out. The first thing I clean is my kitchen counters, then my utility room because everyone enters my house through the side door. I would be heaven to wake-up to freshly vacuumed floors every morning.

312
Jen Lau August 24, 2012 at 7:39 am

Living room first then bathrooms. This would be amazing to have! Thanks for the giveaway!

313
Erin N. August 24, 2012 at 7:39 am

Oh wow! What a great giveaway. I would love the chance to win and stop using my old central vacuum. The first place I clean is the guest bath and kitchen area. With carpets in the kitchen and 4 kids (and a kitty), I typically vacuum to pick up goodies left on the floor. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

314
Elizabeth August 24, 2012 at 7:39 am

Decluttering and basically putting things where they belong is usually the first thing I do when cleaning for company. I can’t really clean anything until all my surfaces are clear of the extra stuff. I save bathrooms for last so they are the most clean and my family doesn’t dirty them up before our guests arrive.

315
Anh August 24, 2012 at 7:40 am

I always start with vacuuming the house top to bottom and end with the bathroom (my favorite room to clean). This vacuum looks amazing!

316
donna c. August 24, 2012 at 7:40 am

Wow-the NEATO sounds great. It would sure get a work-out in our home..with 3 children and 2 sweet Dalmatians! Thanks for offering this great gadget.

317
Amanda L. August 24, 2012 at 7:40 am

The floors are always needing a cleaning! I’ve got 3 dogs and of I’m not careful, I end up with dog hair tumbleweeds!

318
Georgia Girl August 24, 2012 at 7:41 am

Of course, everyone loves to come through my garage to come in, but, that’s via my kitchen. So… I always vacuum it first, then off to the family room, then the bathrooms. Just in that order.
I sure would love to just click a button and it clean the floors for me as well.
Thank you so much for just the opportunity to win one of these.

319
Angie Farquhar August 24, 2012 at 7:41 am

Is it kinda funny that my husband is the one that would LOVE this vacuum??

320
Shelia August 24, 2012 at 7:42 am

I have two cats in the house so I start dusting and vacuuming my great room and move through the house. If I had the NEATO-XV21 I could work in two rooms at one time! The comments are right…the house isn’t finished until I see vacuum lines in the carpet! Love freshly vacuumed carpet and would love to win this little jewel!

321
Meredith August 24, 2012 at 7:42 am

The first thing I do is clean the downstairs bathroom. People can look at the hairballs on the floor and dust on the surfaces, but no need to use a dirty bathroom. Yuck!

322
Claudia August 24, 2012 at 7:42 am

The first thing I clean when company comes over is the kitchen. It always seems to collect things and if the counter is clean and there are no dishes in the sink, the rest of the house looks better! (I would love this vaccuum especially since it works on both carpet and hard floors.)

323
Natalie August 24, 2012 at 7:42 am

Wow! I would just love one of these! How cool? My living room is always the first room to be cleaned. Although I love to clean and I like things neat and orderly, have you ever heard this saying….I get more cleaning done in the 10 minutes before someone comes over than I do in a week. Lol, I can say this definitely applies at times in my life. =)

324
Danielle R August 24, 2012 at 7:43 am

For me the first thing I clean is the entry way. I have a set of drawers there that I have been using as a catch-all and tend to drop mail, books, receipts, whatever I have in my hands when I walk through the door. So when company comes, I quickly remove the mail and neaten that area up…then on to the bathroom! :) I would love a vacuum that would clean the carpets while I quickly tidied up the rest of the house. One less things to worry about. I’m sure it would be more accurate than I am! Have a great weekend!

325
Amy August 24, 2012 at 7:44 am

With two little dogs in the house, I could really use this!

326
Onease August 24, 2012 at 7:45 am

This looks Awesome!!!

327
Kelli Downey August 24, 2012 at 7:45 am

If my house is vacuumed it is clean! Love this giveaway!

328
Amy M August 24, 2012 at 7:45 am

What’s the first thing I clean when company is coming over? Well, let’s see. My bathrooms of course! I have two little boys and well, they just make a mess if you know what I mean ;) I love your blog and would love one of these vacuums!!

329
Carmi August 24, 2012 at 7:45 am

I will usually clean my bathrooms, the guest bedroom with clean linens, then vacuum.

330
Paige S August 24, 2012 at 7:45 am

I clean the bathroom. Especially the toilet!

331
Jenny H. August 24, 2012 at 7:45 am

The first place I clean is the bathroom. Always seems like my luck, that the guests who come over need to use the restroom right away. And with four kids, the bathroom always gets messy..lol. A close second is the livingroom…vacuuming that is:)

332
Maureen August 24, 2012 at 7:47 am

The living room, the front entry way is part of the whole room and very observable, its an open plan and anything out of place stands out!

333
Donna B August 24, 2012 at 7:47 am

Always clean the bathroom first!

334
Sara P August 24, 2012 at 7:48 am

The kitchen, dining room and living room – they are the main parts of the house and I can close the doors to the rest.

335
Linda August 24, 2012 at 7:48 am

My bathrooms are generally pretty clean, so I always clean the kitchen and living room first since those are the rooms my guests spend the most time in!

336
Brittany McGowan August 24, 2012 at 7:48 am

The first “thing” my fiance and I clean is our dog, Miss Tilly. She’s a beagle basset mix and always has her nose in something in the house or outside. The first thing we do is we do a “smell test”. Tilly has foul odors to begin with (passes gas in public), therefore we must eliminate as many odors as we can. This results in a bath for Tilly. She’s the best dog in the world but there always has to be a smell test before going on roadtrips, vacations to visit her “grandparents”, and when we have friends over :)

337
danielle August 24, 2012 at 7:49 am

The living room :) I soooo need a new vaccuum, too!

338
Mary August 24, 2012 at 7:49 am

I try to do the hardest to clean rooms first so I don’t lose my energy. I would love to have this vac especially because my back hurts so much lately. Great giveaway! Thank you.

339
Angie August 24, 2012 at 7:50 am

I always make sure our black granite countertops in the kitchen are cleaned off…those show everything!

340
amy kirkland August 24, 2012 at 7:50 am

First thing I clean when company is coming is the KITCHEN!!! It’s the center of our family and is always the first thing to become a mess.

341
Mary Anne August 24, 2012 at 7:50 am

I clean the bathrooms first! I actually am in the process of shopping for a vacuum cleaner, so this is perfect timing. I sure hope I win!!

342
Teale August 24, 2012 at 7:51 am

The clutter…then the kitchen. I need a MagNeato! I have an 11 month old that tries to be a human vacuum!

343
Susan J August 24, 2012 at 7:51 am

I clean the living room and hope they don’t go anywhere else in the house! (:

344
Mary Anne Tomlinson August 24, 2012 at 7:52 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming is my kitchen and breakfast bar. I sure hope I win this awesome vacuum cleaner.

345
Stefanie August 24, 2012 at 7:52 am

The first thing I clean is the BATHROOMS!! :)

346
Alan C. August 24, 2012 at 7:52 am

I would vacuum for my wife if we had one of these. :)

347
Candice H. August 24, 2012 at 7:52 am

I clean the living room from top to bottom first! thats where all my animals meet when us people arent around so there is lots of hair.

348
Susannah August 24, 2012 at 7:54 am

I always clean the den and kitchen because that’s where we will spend our time. And, I’m a vaccuum snob and would never have thought this robotic vaccuum really works!

349
Donna Dear August 24, 2012 at 7:54 am

I clean my kitchen and living room. If I have time I would mop my kitchen.

350
Barb S August 24, 2012 at 7:54 am

I hide all the clutter and then wipe down my kitchen, light a few candles, turn down the lights and voila!

351
Tara Beckstedt August 24, 2012 at 7:54 am

I sooo need one of these! How cool. First thing I do (among a LONG list of other things) is pick up all the toys so guest have a place to sit! ;)

352
Kim August 24, 2012 at 7:54 am

I clean the bathroom first.

353
Anele @ Success Along the Weigh August 24, 2012 at 7:54 am

I’m so entering this for the Mr because he’s been begging for something like that forever.

As far as the first thing I clean, it’s usually the kitchen because it’s the first thing people see when they walk into the house but the carpets living room is a couple of steps away.

I always start with the kitchen first when I have people coming over to the house for a visit.

Pick me, pick me! I would love to have one of these vacuums! Great giveaway today…

355
Jeanne August 24, 2012 at 7:56 am

Wow! That vacuum robot really looks like they got all the kinks worked out that befall all the other ones out on the market. Everything I didn’t like about them is better in this robot vacuum! I clean the kitchen/FR, then the bathrooms,then the foyer! What a huge help this vacuum would be!!!! Great Giveaway!

356
Tara August 24, 2012 at 7:56 am

I clean my kitchen/living room since I have an open floor plan! This is an awesome review and giveaway! Thanks!

357
Rachael August 24, 2012 at 7:56 am

Kitchen! mostly so I can cook everything and then have everyone congregate in my spacious (for an apartment) kitchen and enjoy my treats!

358
Demitria August 24, 2012 at 7:56 am

We always need to vacuum the living room furniture. Our cat is always sleeping on it and leaving behind piles for fur. Then we vacuum the rest of the house!

359
Beckie August 24, 2012 at 7:56 am

Kitchen is always the first to get cleaned! It’s usually the messiest because of dinner prep for the company. However, if it’s overnight company than the room that they’re staying in gets tackled first!

360
Ebpitcher August 24, 2012 at 7:57 am

Got to clean my stacks up! With the Neato I might think first about vacuuming!

361
Nikki August 24, 2012 at 7:57 am

The first thing I clean is the guest powder room, especially the toilet, because I don’t think there is anything more gross than using a dirty loo. :)

362
Deborah August 24, 2012 at 7:57 am

The kitchen is first since people always tend to hang out there the most and then the bathroom!

363
Brandy August 24, 2012 at 7:57 am

I make sure the main bathroom is clean and the livingroom is straightened up.

I would love to win this vacuum. The cat hair in my house is rediculous! Thanks for the chance!

364
Dianna @ Aspiring to be August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

The kitchen is usually the first thing I clean. Its the one room where everyone congregates throughout the day and the clutter really builds up.

365
Jana Pindell August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

Bathroom! Nobody wants to use your powder room and it be unclean.

366
Michelle Torres August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

The first thing I clean when I have guest’s coming over is my carpet’s, then my hardwood’s. There is nothing like clean floor’s to walk on to me…

Holly August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

The first thing I clean is the living room and all it’s clutter. My husband always has at least 5 Mt. Dew cans sitting around!

368
Paty Shaulis August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

The first thing I do is dust the furniture, the vacuum the floors because I have a cat that leaves hair everywhere! How long does the battery last on this robot vacuum cleaner? Does it work on floors with a lot of objects like tables and chairs?

369
Stephanie F. August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

With 2 cats, I always vacuum first. This vacuum would be awesome, what a time saver!!

370
Ruth E. August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

I pick up the living room and clean the kitchen!

371
Karen August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

I clean the bathroom and vaccumn and straighten up the kitchen. I can close doors on everything else. LOL

372
Maggie August 24, 2012 at 7:58 am

I always clean the bathroom first!!

This looks like the coolest vacuum EVER.

373
Bhea August 24, 2012 at 7:59 am

I clean the messiest room first! Then I make sure the guest bathroom is presentable.

374
deann jarrett August 24, 2012 at 8:00 am

Dust furniture and spray air freshner.

375
Kristen H. August 24, 2012 at 8:00 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming is the bathroom. With two little boys it is impossible for it to stay clean for long. I would love to have the vacuuming done while I clean.

376
Stuart August 24, 2012 at 8:02 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom. Not that it’s a mess, but it’s my go to place. Fingers crossed!

377
Wendy W. August 24, 2012 at 8:03 am

Bathroom first, then a quick dash around the den to straighten up. I am WAY impressed with this vacuum … on my way to check it out on Amazon now!

378
Maria M August 24, 2012 at 8:03 am

The first thing I clean out is the living room where the company will have to sit. The kids have a tendency to wander in there and leave everything behind. Then the kitchen and the dining room.

379
Amanda N. August 24, 2012 at 8:03 am

I’m big on vacuume lines and lighting candles!

380
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 8:04 am

The kitchen gets cleaned up first. Thanks for the chance!

381
quietangelsb August 24, 2012 at 8:04 am

what an awesome vacuum! I typically vacuum the family room first since that’s the room that we typically spend the most time in! Thanks for the giveaway!

382
Denise August 24, 2012 at 8:04 am

I start with living room and kitchen. They’re all in the same room. =)

383
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 8:05 am

Always the kitchen!!!!

384
Tracie August 24, 2012 at 8:05 am

My kitchen is usually in terrible shape! Vacuuming always gets pushed to the bottom of the list.

385
Lindsay August 24, 2012 at 8:05 am

First thing I do is vacuum the area rug. My dog loves his tug and it leaves strings all over the place! Or I just neaten up the kitchen. And clean the stove. And put away all my shoes that are scattered. There’s just too much! Always!

386
Miri August 24, 2012 at 8:07 am

The first thing I clean for company is the living room and then the bathroom.

387
Julie August 24, 2012 at 8:07 am

I clean the living room first since that is the first room they walk into.

388
Cindy August 24, 2012 at 8:07 am

I always clean bathrooms first when company is coming. But floors are a close second!

389
Chrichelle Fernandez August 24, 2012 at 8:07 am

I definitely run around the house to pick up all the toys first and throw them in to the biggest toy box! This vacuum would definitely help me keep my sanity a little! GREAT giveaway!

390
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 8:07 am

OMG, my husband has been bugging me about getting one of these. He would LOVE this! As for cleaning before guests…idk that I have a go-to first item to clean. It might be vacuuming, because, as you pointed out, the vacuum tracks make it look nice and clean, even if I haven’t gone the extra step to dust, which is my absolutely most hated chore. Thanks so much for the giveaway opportunity! So hoping I win this one! :-)

391
nicole p August 24, 2012 at 8:08 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom.

392
Samantha August 24, 2012 at 8:08 am

I always clean the living room first! Thanks for the giveaway!!
Have a great weekend!

393
Erin August 24, 2012 at 8:09 am

Im not going to lie the bathroom is the first thing I clean, but when ever you have company over of course everyone sits on the couch, puts their feet up. So you have to clean the living room, I just adopted another cat (kitten) and I cannot believe how much the amount of cat hair has gone up from one little 4 lb kitten. This vacuum would be a God send if I won. Hope I do!! =)

394
Becky August 24, 2012 at 8:09 am

I always pick up any clutter and do the bathrooms first. The vacuuming gets left til last and I sometimes run out of time to do a nice job. Thanks :)

395
Betsy August 24, 2012 at 8:10 am

The bathroom and living room. I try to make sure that anything you can see from the front door always looks clean, but with 3 little kids it gets a little hard sometimes. :)

396
Sarah Parker August 24, 2012 at 8:10 am

I go around and pick up all clutter, then I wash any dishes. Because dog hair is everywhere all the time I save vacuuming as the final touch and it makes a huge difference in making the house presentable.

397
Julie August 24, 2012 at 8:10 am

WOW! What an awesome opportunity! I always head to the powder room and then the kitchen. Thanks!

398
Deena August 24, 2012 at 8:10 am

Definitely the first thing I do is clean off the kitchen countertops and any dishes in the sink. I think a cluttered counter and sink brings down the whole room! Plus my kitchen, dining, and living rooms are all one big area. So a mess in the sink is really noticeable!

399
Marsha August 24, 2012 at 8:11 am

I’d love to win! I always clean to bathroom first when we have company coming over.

400
Jodi Krautkramer August 24, 2012 at 8:11 am

Oh my goodness!! My carpets, I have a dog that I swear sheds about a bucket a day of dog hair!! This would be so handy!

401
Margie Huggins August 24, 2012 at 8:12 am

with 3 dogs and 2 cats this would be fabulous!

402
Deb August 24, 2012 at 8:12 am

Ive been busy this morning downloading your fav. Iphone Apps. OOOh! Would love to have this vacuum! Thanks for the chance to win!

403
Amanda August 24, 2012 at 8:12 am

Oh this is funny…….I’m an entrance person……..and then straight to the bathroom. To clean it, pleezzzzzzz..

404
Debra D. August 24, 2012 at 8:12 am

Always start with the floors, usually in the living room and hallways. We have a large dog that sheds like crazy! Even though he doesn’t roam the house, stays mainly by the kitchen and back of the living room, that light-weight hair just drifts everywhere! But, the extra work doesn’t matter because we get tons of love and devotion in return!

405
Maria Trader August 24, 2012 at 8:12 am

I usually clean off the kitchen counters first then vacuum second.

406
Sherry August 24, 2012 at 8:12 am

Under the kitchen table…my boys are MESSY!!!

407
Melissa roberts August 24, 2012 at 8:13 am

The liter box. It’s not a very welcoming smell if not clean. That vacuum would really be handy with two cats in the house.

408
Dana August 24, 2012 at 8:13 am

gahhh i am jonesing for one of those robot vacuums!!! most definitely my living room : )

409
Sharon August 24, 2012 at 8:13 am

Kitchen

410
Patty August 24, 2012 at 8:14 am

Silly me….I chose dark flooring because I thought it wouldn’t show dirt/dust/pet hair as quickly! WRONG! After I throw stuff that’s lying around in the closet, under the beds, etc., I get to my living room & foyer to straighten up! Unless you’re a back door friend, then…you’re used to it! You’re not “company”. Just pull up a seat, after you move dog toys & magazines!

411
Sonnet Bee August 24, 2012 at 8:14 am

the first thing i clean is my kitchen and then vacuum, because i have a big long-haired black cat! with that adorable vacuum, i could just set it to go, clean the kitchen AND the bathroom with time to spare. what a lifesaver!

412
Lexy of BeautyFash August 24, 2012 at 8:14 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom! With 2 kiddies, the bathroom ALWAYS require a good wipe-down. And I like to have it sparkling for company.

413
Angela House August 24, 2012 at 8:15 am

So want this! I have such a hard time vacuuming with 3 little ones running around (and one on the way). This would help so much!

414
Teresa August 24, 2012 at 8:15 am

Bathrooms!! Bathroom must be spotless FIRST. :)

415
Wanda Cullen August 24, 2012 at 8:15 am

Our kitchen/dining room/family room are all one large open area, so that’s what gets cleaned first when company comes. Would love to have this robot vacuum…many thanks for the chance to win!

416
brooke August 24, 2012 at 8:16 am

Wow, this vacuum looks fantastic! The first thing I do is pick up the random toys/junk in the living room. Then I vacuum if I have time!

417
Elissa August 24, 2012 at 8:17 am

We always clean the living room first when company is coming over, since it’s the most used room. With 2 cats and a 1 year old, I love this giveaway : ) thanks!

418
Mina August 24, 2012 at 8:17 am

the living room/dining area. it gets so cluttered and disorganized, and needs a really good shaping up before guests arrive. then i’ll do the kitchen after cooking, and the bathroom.

419
Allison Troyer August 24, 2012 at 8:17 am

Ooh my goodness! We just got a new puppy and I have to vacuum all the time it feels like!! How nice it would be to schedule it at night and do all the work for me while I sleep!

420
Amy Owen August 24, 2012 at 8:17 am

Dog hair off the floors, so I would love it!

421
Laura L August 24, 2012 at 8:17 am

Where do I start? I usually have to wipe down the bathroom, pick up the kitchen counter and all the kids’ toys from the living room floor. Anything else company can just deal with ;)

422
Debbie August 24, 2012 at 8:18 am

The kitchen first – it’s always the first to get cluttered.

423
Larissa August 24, 2012 at 8:19 am

First straighten up the kitchen – dishes to the dishwasher, pick up the shoes…etc. That’s my entryway. Then on to the bathroom downstairs and the living room. This looks like the most amazing vacuum! My husband hates when the floor is dusty/crumby from us and the kids. If I had a Neato, I could program it to vacuum while we are at work/school and we’d come home to a fresh floor every day! Then, while making dinner, I’d set it to do the upstairs. I need a Neato!!
Thanks for the review and the contest!!

424
Nicole @ Life's a Beach August 24, 2012 at 8:19 am

This is awesome. My friends have something similar to this. I generally vacuum my kitchen to get the crumbs up :) Then vacuum my living room after everyone leaves.

425
Danielle August 24, 2012 at 8:19 am

It is always the kitchen then the living room. Vacuuming is a necessity, since I have a Great Dane! Hope I win. :)

426
Kathi Bates August 24, 2012 at 8:20 am

I get out the swiffer and swiff away. I have a wonderful pet named Rudy who sheds a lot so I am constantly trying to keep ahead of dog hair collecting everywhere. We are now the grandparents for the first time and this is so important to me for several reasons: her health and soon she will be crawling. I want a safe, healthy environment for her. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to your posts!

427
JoyH August 24, 2012 at 8:20 am

The bathroom – with 3 little kids it always needs to be cleaned!

428
Lisa August 24, 2012 at 8:20 am

I clean up the clutter that’s in the living room especially all the shoes that get left at the front door.

429
Lisa Y. August 24, 2012 at 8:21 am

Definately the bathrooms and the kitchen. Wonder how this works on kitchen floors too? Thanks for the opportunity!

430
Deb Wisker August 24, 2012 at 8:21 am

how awesome! I’d love one!

431
Maggie August 24, 2012 at 8:22 am

The bathroom! I feel like that shows dirt and grime the worst.

432
Samantha C. August 24, 2012 at 8:22 am

It has to be definitely the floors and the sitting areas. I have a cat and he tends to shed a lot so this vacuum would be perfect for me to keep up with him shedding!

♥ Samantha

433
Andrea August 24, 2012 at 8:23 am

I head straight for the bathroom when I have people coming over. However living in a studio apartment pretty much means everything has to be clean or someone will see it!

434
Andrea F August 24, 2012 at 8:24 am

The dining room table. It can be seen from the front door and is the dropping ground for everything.

435
Meghan Comstock August 24, 2012 at 8:25 am

I clean the living room first. I vacuum and dust to make sure it is all in tip top shape as soon as they come in. First impressions are what always sticks in their minds. Plus our dog spends most of his time in our living room and I don’t want them to smell my dog before they even see him!!

436
Tami M. August 24, 2012 at 8:25 am

With 2 big dogs, the hardwood floor is always the first thing I clean, it seems like the dog hair is always floating around on the floor and gathering in the corners! What a fabulous giveaway, thanks for the chance to win!

437
Katie Dotson August 24, 2012 at 8:25 am

First thing I clean for sure is the floors! With a black lab in the house, a sweep/vacuum job makes the house look 10x better!

438
Suzanne August 24, 2012 at 8:26 am

I would LOVE this vacuum. (I’m assuming it can handle ceramic tile floors?) With two shedding dogs and people who are forever spilling crumbs in the kitchen this would be a godsend. If the floor was clean I might actually mop the floor more often! (Which is coincidentally the first thing I clean when people come over.) I have discovered that people actually hate it when their shoe sticks to the floor.

439
Amanda August 24, 2012 at 8:26 am

The first thing I always clean is the family room because that’s where we spend the most time!

440
Mindy M August 24, 2012 at 8:26 am

The den/great room. It’s the first place people hang.

441
Tonya August 24, 2012 at 8:27 am

The entryway, which is also the kids’ playroom. Always hoping that first impression lasts after company sees the clutter that is the rest of the house ;)

442
BArb August 24, 2012 at 8:28 am

I clean everything, I once saw some one write “Your house is never cleaner than 30 minutes before company arrives” something like that

443
Mallory Thompson August 24, 2012 at 8:28 am

WOULD LOVE TO WIN THIS!!!!! We have 2 big hairy dogs and this would be awesome!

444
Cara O. August 24, 2012 at 8:28 am

I clean the floors first, make the wood floors fur free! Then speed clean anything else that may need to be touched up.

445
sierra Hess August 24, 2012 at 8:28 am

I always clean the great room/kitchen area first! It’s the place where everyone hangs out so I need to have the kitchen counter clear and the pillows fluffed! Then I move to the bathroom. I use Norwex cleaning stuff and it makes it so easy! I would love to have this new vacuum to help me out, especially since we have a new baby on the way! I will need an extra hand!

446
Cary Jenkins August 24, 2012 at 8:29 am

Oh my, I really, really, really need this!! Usually do our big den since we are always in there and it’s the first room people see (besides the foyer). My whole house would love to meet
NEATO-XV-21!

447
Amy August 24, 2012 at 8:29 am

Look at all that hair…I think you sold me on this no work option!! Company coming means cleaning the kitchen because people only visit for my food ;)

448
Carol August 24, 2012 at 8:29 am

My vac just died as I was trying to get ready for company so the dustmop had to do the job, albeit badly. So a new one would be fantastic! Plus I wouldn’t have to research and dither over what to buy as a replacement. I do the kitchen floor first because it collects most of the obvious dirt, then the bathrooms.

I enjoy your blog. Keep up the fun!

449
Amy C August 24, 2012 at 8:29 am

I agree – the Boston Terrier sticker should be standard! :) Oh, and I usually clean up the bathroom -it’s not dirty, but I am a slob in my bathroom and I always have to put my makeup and hair products away!

450
Mia August 24, 2012 at 8:29 am

I dust!

451
Amanda August 24, 2012 at 8:30 am

I always clean the living room first…the room that is used most! I really want to win :)

452
Barbara W. August 24, 2012 at 8:30 am

I run the vacuum cleaner first!

453
Meghan B August 24, 2012 at 8:31 am

I NEVER enter contests but I must have this vacuum.

The first thing I do when preparing for guests is de-cluttering the kitchen counters; we always seem to congregate around the kitchen island with our friends and family. That goes a long way in making the house guest-ready!

454
Sher August 24, 2012 at 8:31 am

Neat vacuum! Kitchen, bathroom, and living room. Thanks for the giveaway!

455
Bonnie August 24, 2012 at 8:31 am

The first thing I clean for company is the living room to get as much pet hair up as possible. (It’s kind of embarrassing when you see fur on their behinds when they get up to leave!)

>’ ‘<

456
Kindra Hill August 24, 2012 at 8:32 am

I would love to win this vacuum. I have a Great Dane so I vacuum a lot! :)

I always clean my kitchen first. My kitchen and family room are one big room so it gets cluttered quite easily.

457
Michele August 24, 2012 at 8:32 am

I always make sure my bathrooms are clean. Next comes the floors and then the kitchen.
I love this little vacuum. How cool!

458
Jen August 24, 2012 at 8:32 am

I always pick up the shoes that seem to multiply by the front door….and then the kitchen counters, followed by the bathroom.

459
Julia Reffner August 24, 2012 at 8:32 am

I always clean the kitchen first. It always needs the most help.

460
LaLaLand August 24, 2012 at 8:32 am

Kitchen first, while hub’s cleans his hall bath.

461
Sheri August 24, 2012 at 8:32 am

With 4 cats and 2 dogs this little machine would sure come in handy! When guests are coming over the 1st thing we have to clean are our floors!

462
Amber August 24, 2012 at 8:32 am

The kitchen and the bathroom, giving them a nice clean fresh feel!

463
Teresa August 24, 2012 at 8:33 am

I think it is a mix of cleaning the bathroom/den/kitchen. You can never be too sure where everyone will want to hang out. So to be safe it is like trying to win a marathon in cleaning!! Good luck to everyone! Thanks for sharing a great prize!

464
Kim Miller August 24, 2012 at 8:33 am

I saw this in NY at BlogHer and wanted it! So cool! I always clean the kitchen first because this is where everyone seems to gather! Have a great weekend!

465
Christy August 24, 2012 at 8:33 am

The first thing I clean is the kitchen!

466
Lisa A August 24, 2012 at 8:33 am

I like to clean the kitchen first. This vacuum cleaner is amazing! I would love to win it for my mom!! It would really be a great help to her.

467
Bergen August 24, 2012 at 8:34 am

The bathroom! Then do a quick 2 minute run/pick up in the living/dining room. What a great giveaway!

468
Krista Smith August 24, 2012 at 8:34 am

I’ve seen one of these in action…they’re amazing!! The first thing I do when i know company is coming over is dust!

469
Dana Kaye August 24, 2012 at 8:35 am

I like to start in the kitchen!

470
Sarah August 24, 2012 at 8:35 am

The first thing I clean is my kitchen rug – where my dog is whenever I am in the kitchen (waiting for me to drop something and clean up) and his hair stays on there! Thanks!

471
Maria B August 24, 2012 at 8:35 am

The first thing I clean is the living room/kitchen (open to each other). I vacuum daily since I can’t stand anything on my floors so this powerful little thing would be fabulous to win. Thank you for the chance!

472
Evelyn R August 24, 2012 at 8:36 am

The first thing I do is pick up the random clutter like papers and mail that accumulate around the house. If the kitchen counters and tables are cleared off everything feels neater.

473
christian August 24, 2012 at 8:36 am

Whatever looks the worst! That could be any number of things at my house, but having something that can get the dog hair off the floors while I focus on another task would be awesome!

474
Sarah A August 24, 2012 at 8:36 am

I like to get the laundry started and clean the kitchen and the floors first.

475
Joy August 24, 2012 at 8:37 am

I clean my kitchen because that is where company enters first. Then it’s on to the family room and vacuuming, which I don’t enjoy ever.

476
Rachel G. August 24, 2012 at 8:37 am

For better or worse, I’m extremely OCD when it comes to cleaning, and once I start I get carried away and want everything to be clean. But typically, when people are coming over, I have to start with the kitchen counters and floor. Our house has a very open layout, and with outdoor light coming in from both sides, it’s impossible to miss dirt reflecting off the floors and counter tops, so that’s usually my first stop.

What a cool giveaway–I hope I win! :)

477
Audrey S August 24, 2012 at 8:38 am

No method to my madness. My central vac just broke, so I’m trying to keep the house clean with a shop vac. Not so much fun!

478
Joyce Y August 24, 2012 at 8:39 am

Normally I clean the bathrooms first BUT I am a cleaning maniac when we have company. My hubby says we have to have company every three months or so, so the house gets thoroughly cleaned and de cluttered. That is very true. I vacuum and dust a lot but tend to ignore the other things until company comes!!
I would love a robot vacuum, I could pick up my little piles of clutter while it takes care of my carpets ;)

479
Lissa August 24, 2012 at 8:39 am

i always declutter then vacume first when people come over. I think the floors being freshly cleaned and vacumed always makes the house seem much neater then it really is XD

480
Leah B August 24, 2012 at 8:39 am

The floors – two sheddy dogs and cat there is always fur somewhere! Keeping my fingers crossed – this would be a huge help.

481
Cheryl August 24, 2012 at 8:39 am

The kitchen or the bathroom!

482
traci ridaught August 24, 2012 at 8:39 am

I clean the bathrooms first. I’d love to win the vacumn. Thanks for the chance to win!

Marla August 24, 2012 at 8:40 am

The bathroom is first on my list.

484
Stephanie August 24, 2012 at 8:40 am

Um, can “the downstairs” be the first place as a whole? I have two big dogs (a Great Dane and a Mastiff) and while neither of them are terrible shedders, there’s a lot of dog and therefore a lot of hair. I would LOVE to come downstairs to vacuumed floors after I’ve spent a hard night catching those zzz’s.

485
Monica August 24, 2012 at 8:40 am

First thing I clean is the bathroom! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity Amanda!

486
Sara K.B. August 24, 2012 at 8:40 am

I clean the kitchen first, and then the bathrooms. Those two are essential.

487
Ellie A. August 24, 2012 at 8:40 am

This giveaway almost brought a tear to my eye because being a mama to 3 kids my vacuum get a super workout. The living room is where my kids spend most of their time & our carpets get a beating. To be able to have the floor done ( as I do it twice a day) while I tackle some other chore? OH it like hearing a choir sing! Thanks for the chance.

488
Michele August 24, 2012 at 8:41 am

My kitchen…then the bathrooms! Everything as fast as possible because we are messy and I’m sure company is already in the driveway!

489
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 8:41 am

The first thing I like to clean is the floors. The house just looks refreshed with clean floors and those vacuum lines! Awesome giveaway!

490
Allison August 24, 2012 at 8:41 am

Too funny! I am having company over tonight so the first thing I did was get out the vacuum and broom. I just sat down to take a quick break, checked your blog and saw your latest post. The vacuum looks amazing! With kids and pets, who wouldn’t love a little extra help?!
Thank you!!

491
Carol August 24, 2012 at 8:41 am

The first place I clean is the living room. My son, husband and dog track everything in. I would love to win a vacuum cleaner.

492
Lara August 24, 2012 at 8:41 am

Awesome giveaway…always start in bathroom and move out. Thanks!

493
Heather in Boise August 24, 2012 at 8:41 am

The kitchen-because that’s where everyone ends up!

494
Brittany J. August 24, 2012 at 8:42 am

The first thing I do before company is coming over is sweep/mop. Once the big part is done, I can hurry and dust and put everything back in order :)

495
Pat M. August 24, 2012 at 8:42 am

The first thing I clean up when guests are expected is my living room. That’s the room with the biggest area rug and it shows my Golden Retriever (Buddy’s) hair the most. He’s going through his shedding season big-time right now and the vaccum would be awesome! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

496
Laura August 24, 2012 at 8:43 am

I always clean the kitchen and bathrooms first!

497
Diane C. August 24, 2012 at 8:43 am

When company comes over, I always clean the living room first! First impressions, I guess! I would love this vacuum! Crossing my fingers!

498
Laura August 24, 2012 at 8:43 am

Before I even start cleaning I light a great smelling candle and turn on some great music. This way if guests show up before I’m done cleanin the house already smells great and the atmosphere is fun.

499
Doreen August 24, 2012 at 8:44 am

This awesome! I would love this. Your floors get vacumned while you are doing other things! Love it! Thanks for the opportunity!

500
liz August 24, 2012 at 8:44 am

Well, I only get my cleaning done right before company comes over. haha

I always vacuum the kitchen first- the dirtiest place in my house. I guess that means I am a messy cook!

Yeah… I am.

But I love the kitchen- it is where I have all my friends and family gathered. So cleaning up pays off with lots of laughter.

501
Andi T. August 24, 2012 at 8:45 am

I typically clean the kitchen before company comes. Then, I sweep the floors :) This would make getting rid of dog hair so much easier :)

502
Mark Willoughby August 24, 2012 at 8:45 am

The first thing I always hit is counter tops and tables unfortunatly they are junk collectors in my house :(

503
Lily August 24, 2012 at 8:45 am

The powder room get cleaned first for sure!! We have a 1 yr old mini schnauzer and feel sorry for him home alone when we have to leave for a few hours at a time, so ‘Mr. MagNeato’ (LOL) would sure keep him busy chasing it around! Love it!!!

504
Sharon August 24, 2012 at 8:46 am

The first thing I tackle is the kitchen! Everyone likes to hang out there the most. This vacuum looks amazing :)

505
Kristi August 24, 2012 at 8:46 am

Living room and kitchen!

506
Dorci August 24, 2012 at 8:46 am

The bathrooms get hit first, then the kitchen and carpet.

507
Meghan M. August 24, 2012 at 8:46 am

looks awesome! want :)

508
Tiffany Holland August 24, 2012 at 8:47 am

I always clean the toilet first! Guests can put up with tons, but a dirty toilet! ugh!!!

509
Sara August 24, 2012 at 8:47 am

The bathrooms and kitchen of course!

510
Lauren August 24, 2012 at 8:47 am

The kitchen and bathroom are my top areas to clean for company. The floors come next since my dog is ALWAYS shedding!

511
Chrissy August 24, 2012 at 8:47 am

I always head for the bathrooms when company is coming!!

512
Kari H. August 24, 2012 at 8:47 am

The first room I clean is the kitchen since that’s usually where we all hang out.

513
Brendy August 24, 2012 at 8:47 am

The Kitchen. That’s where everyone always ends up hanging out.

514
Kelly August 24, 2012 at 8:48 am

The first thing I clean is the living room. It’s the room that is used the most. It’s funny that you posted about a vacuum because I had one of those sales people stop by my house snd give me a demonstration on a Kirby sentria vacuum that was like over a $1000 because it was powered by a transmission yet light as a feather. Of course, I didn’t buy it but I kept thinking how crappy and old my current vacuum is and how I need a new one. This giveaway would be perfect.

515
randjm August 24, 2012 at 8:48 am

Quick pick up of the living room and then the toilet and sink in the bathroom.!

516
Kimmie August 24, 2012 at 8:48 am

The kitchen counters! With a full house it seems like there are always crumbs, dirty dishes and a baby doll or pile of legos on the counter :)

517
Stephanie August 24, 2012 at 8:48 am

I always clean up the kitchen first. We have two labs, so dusting and vacuuming isn’t far behind!

518
Teresa Kelman August 24, 2012 at 8:53 am

I can really relate to your comment. We have 2 labs and a poodle – house dogs!

519
Chelsi August 24, 2012 at 8:48 am

Thing I clean first is either vacuum the floor or my kitchen… :)

520
Jenn August 24, 2012 at 8:49 am

Oh sweet heavens, I’ve always wanted a robot vacuum! How perfect to play with the baby in one room while the vacuum runs in another! (The baby’s afraid of my vacuum.) :) If company’s coming, I do a mad dash to straighten up in general, and clean the toilets if they need it.

521
Jessica H August 24, 2012 at 8:49 am

I always clean my kitchen first. That’s usually always the dirtiest place in my house between kids, dogs, dishes, etc.

522
Michelle August 24, 2012 at 8:49 am

I have 4 kids and this would be awesome to be able to spend time elsewhere.

523
Amy August 24, 2012 at 8:49 am

I always clean the family room and kitchen first!

524
Gay H. August 24, 2012 at 8:51 am

Today is my birthday and I would love to have the Neato vacuum as my gift!

525
Deborah August 24, 2012 at 8:51 am

My bathroom.

526
Liza Lee Miller August 24, 2012 at 8:51 am

First thing I clean is the living room . . . we spend all our time there and it’s usually a cluttered, jumbled mess. I have teenagers to run my Dyson but dream of having a vacuum that will keep my carpet clean all the time without my having to nag it! :)

527
Teresa Kelman August 24, 2012 at 8:51 am

Company’s coming? Clean the bathroom!

528
Windy August 24, 2012 at 8:52 am

The bathroom in the hall is first if it needs it. Then the floors (because we have furballs who create furry tumbleweeds daily, lol). :)

529
kellie August 24, 2012 at 8:52 am

When company is coming over I usually run around like a chicken with its head cut off ;) then start with cleaning the bathroom, then on to vacuum next. I have a neck injury so this would be AMAZING to win to say the least. I am always in pain after lugging mine out and pushing it around. Crossing my fingers and toes ! Thank you for the chance to win!!

530
Amy U August 24, 2012 at 8:52 am

The 1st thing I clean…the guest bathroom! Gotta make a good first impression when guests have to go! I love this little vaccuum cleaner & with a cat, a brand new boxer (Skeeter :), 2 kids & a husband, you bet my floors need all the help they can get! Life is too short to waste time cleaning!

531
Anna August 24, 2012 at 8:52 am

The kitchen or living room…just depends if I am cooking. I can’t even comprehend programming a vacuum to work while I am not watching it…I’d love to see it in action.

532
Nima Ferguson August 24, 2012 at 8:53 am

My living room! And my floors. Those are the first things you see when you walk in. I’m always cooking/baking so everyone expects a messy kitchen! ;-)

533
Rachel C. August 24, 2012 at 8:53 am

I always clean the guest bathroom first! Great giveaway!

534
Lois August 24, 2012 at 8:54 am

Without a doubt it’s the bathroom! Our house is always pretty tidy, so even if it’s not completely dust free, it looks okay! But I HAVE to have a sparkly bathroom when anyone comes over! Thanks for the giveaway :)

535
Steffi August 24, 2012 at 8:54 am

The downstairs bathroom. Always. I have a four year old boy….it can get grody.

536
KellyG August 24, 2012 at 8:54 am

I always clean the kitchen and the bathrooms first:)

537
A.R. August 24, 2012 at 8:54 am

The bathroom. They may not see it, but if they do i want it clean :)

538
Eliza August 24, 2012 at 8:55 am

Living room is the first room in the house so that usually gets the last minute clean first.

539
Lynda M. August 24, 2012 at 8:55 am

The bathroom first and then the family room. I would love, love, love this vacuum!

540
Anita Austinson August 24, 2012 at 8:55 am

Family room!

541
Jen August 24, 2012 at 8:55 am

We always focus on the floors and the couches – which are always covered in our dog’s hair!!

542
Denise August 24, 2012 at 8:56 am

First thing I clean is the kitchen!

543
Leah August 24, 2012 at 8:56 am

The KITCHEN.

544
Cambi August 24, 2012 at 8:56 am

I clean the floors, as in bathroom floors and kitchen floors. I feel like those don’t get cleaned often enough and are always dirty.

545
Allison B. August 24, 2012 at 8:56 am

I definitely clean the kitchen and the bathroom first. This vacuum would be great to have in my house, and it would save me sooo much time!

546
Amy C. August 24, 2012 at 8:56 am

The first thing I clean when people are coming over is my kitchen! LOL! It’s usually pretty clean, but can become cluttered during the week. After the kitchen I am on to the bathroom!!!! ;)

547
shelly (cookies and cups) August 24, 2012 at 8:56 am

Well, I need this!
After cleaning up the kitchen. the carpet is my first thing to clean. With 2 dogs, it muy importante!

548
Susan LP August 24, 2012 at 8:57 am

Usually my husband vacumns the floors while I’m shoving things in the closets. Then it’s on to the kitchen, the living room, the bathroom… you get the picture. Controlled chaos! :)

549
Andrea Pacheco August 24, 2012 at 8:57 am

This is such a wonderful tool
definitely the floors and carpets needs to be clean first

550
Jackye ham August 24, 2012 at 8:57 am

With three cats, I desperately need this! When company comes, the living room gets priority. Rhanks for the contest!

551
marla August 24, 2012 at 8:58 am

I always clean the kitchen first and I sure do want to win this!

552
Emma S. August 24, 2012 at 8:58 am

The Kitchen!

553
Amanda Bumgarner August 24, 2012 at 8:59 am

I make sure all the dishes are clean and put away!

554
Paula S August 24, 2012 at 8:59 am

I start on the foyer/living room…praying the company won’t have to go any further than that! If they need to use the restroom then everything else better be cleaned too as it will be seen on the way there. Thanks so much for the chance to win. :)

555
Doris August 24, 2012 at 9:00 am

I always clean the great room floor when I know someone is coming over, then I hit the table tops and counter tops so this little jewel would be a great help. I REALLY WANT ONE!!

556
Pat Owen August 24, 2012 at 9:01 am

The living room – first thing visitors see when they come in the door.

557
Cara August 24, 2012 at 9:01 am

We clean the kitchen first, then vacuum.

558
Elisa D'Alessandro August 24, 2012 at 9:01 am

First thing I clean is the bathroom. Even if all the other rooms look a mess, if the bathroom is pristine I feel so much better and it looks adorable!

559
danielle August 24, 2012 at 9:01 am

The kitchen – its where we always end up.

560
holly August 24, 2012 at 9:02 am

Would LOVE to win this because I hate vacuuming so much! The first thing i usually go for when company’s coming is the vacuum since i probably haven’t in awhile. :)

561
Sharman August 24, 2012 at 9:02 am

I clean my bathroom first and then vacuum the living room. I have a black lab so there is black dog hair everywhere!

562
tonisha August 24, 2012 at 9:03 am

there are actually two things that must be done when company is expected. First get all dog hair off sofa and chairs. Then vacuum the dog hair out of carpet. Once those two things are done, the bathroom are next.

563
beth neugarten August 24, 2012 at 9:03 am

the kitchen

564
Amy August 24, 2012 at 9:04 am

The bathroom!

565
Tori August 24, 2012 at 9:04 am

I always make sure my sink is free of dishes and my guest bathroom is clean. I have a 3 year old boy and he tends to miss his target sometimes!

566
Denise N August 24, 2012 at 9:04 am

Wow! I’ve never seen these before…where have I been? This is so cool. Since I am the ONLY one in my house that cleans, this would be a great help. I’m getting a divorce and won’t be able to afford to buy one myself, so would love to have this great “friend” helping me out. When company is coming over, I clean my kitchen because that’s the first thing they see when they come in, but having “someone” else vacuum the living room, family room, bedrooms, etc. would help out tremendously!! Ohhhh, I hope I get picked….**keeping my fingers crossed**!

567
Kat August 24, 2012 at 9:04 am

I clean off my kitchen table…it’s a straight shot from my front door. That’s where the piles of junk tend to end up, as well as the stickiness of the kids.

568
Diane P. August 24, 2012 at 9:04 am

Probably the living room to straighten things out and vacuum. Thanks for the chance of winning this neat device!!

569
Bridget =) August 24, 2012 at 9:05 am

we definitely clean our family room – it’s where all the action takes place!

570
jordan August 24, 2012 at 9:05 am

i always clean the bathroom first, just seems to always be the place i start!

571
Sunnie August 24, 2012 at 9:05 am

Thanks for the giveaway, this would be awesome to win!

572
Amber August 24, 2012 at 9:06 am

Bathroom first. Living room next.

573
cheepincharge August 24, 2012 at 9:06 am

The bathroom gets cleaned first. I don’t have pets, but I do have a husband that tracks dirt, grass, leaves all over the house. This vacuum looks like an awesome thing!

574
delphine August 24, 2012 at 9:06 am

i like to clean the stairs and foyer first, they are the first places our visitors see!

575
Sharon Peterson August 24, 2012 at 9:07 am

I have a big dog so I always am sweeping my floors. Next is to just pick up “stuff” and I’m good to go!

576
kim August 24, 2012 at 9:09 am

Wow, thank you for such a great review! I have always been interested in these little vacuums but questioned their performance. I hope I win!!

577
Kathy Stachewicz August 24, 2012 at 9:09 am

Clean the bathrooom!

578
Capella @ A Curated Lifestyle August 24, 2012 at 9:10 am

The bathrooms – somehow the lack of clutter always seems to make the dirt and grime more evident.

579
Karen August 24, 2012 at 9:10 am

The cat box is first. Then the cat and dog hair hair. Then the cat and dog toys. Then the cat yak. Are you sensing a trend here? Would love to have the miracle vacuum to help with the hair part! Thanks!

580
Taylor August 24, 2012 at 9:10 am

Woo hoo to a giveaway!! This would be perfect for my busy mommy life, one less chore to have to worry about. What an awesome item. Thank for having the giveaway. I hope you enjoyed the trip to Sweden as much as I enjoyed seeing the pictures.

581
Kimberly M. August 24, 2012 at 9:10 am

I’m getting ready to get a puppy and this would be so handy to handle the floor when it inevitably starts to shed! Plus, I’m totally a snacker– Crumbs all over the floor from my pistachios or pretzels. Having this little guy run around and clean it up while I’m at work or in the shower would be AWESOME and such a time saver!

582
Bonnie at {PaperKeeper} August 24, 2012 at 9:12 am

I clean the bathroom!! And then the kitchen if company is coming over – have to do both! Thanks for the great giveaway!

583
Chandra August 24, 2012 at 9:12 am

The kitchen counters & floors! I always have stacks of papers, magazines, kids stuff, etc piled up & with 3 kids, running the vacuum before company comes is a MUST! :)

584
Elly August 24, 2012 at 9:12 am

First thing I clean is the bathroom, then a quick counter swipe in the kitchen, and then vacuum the great room/dining room, then the tv room. Thanks for the giveaway!

585
Amy August 24, 2012 at 9:12 am

Our family room and hardwood floors. We have a yellow lab and you can see the “dust bunnies” all over the honeywood floors.

586
Heather August 24, 2012 at 9:12 am

Always the kitchen, because it’s command central at our home (and the biggest mess too).

587
Amanda F. August 24, 2012 at 9:13 am

Definitely the dog and cat hair in the living room…ugh! I have 2 huge dogs and 2 cats, and there is always fur everywhere. I love a clean house (Type A over here!), and those furry friends make it difficult to achieve that for more than 30 minutes ;)

588
Marilyn August 24, 2012 at 9:13 am

The bathroom. If the bathroom is sparkly clean, I feel like the rest of the house isn’t as bad as I had thought. :)

589
stacyd August 24, 2012 at 9:14 am

I usually make sure the bathrooms are clean first if I know company is coming.

590
Lori G August 24, 2012 at 9:14 am

I always make a bee-line for the bathroom. My daughter’s bathroom doubles as our guest bathroom and I never know what condition it is in. Makeup on the vanity, towels on the floor…..
Would love to win the vacuum…clean floors have a way of making the whole house seem tidy, and it would be one less thing I’d have to squeeze in to my already full day. Thanks for the chance to win!

591
Melissa N. August 24, 2012 at 9:14 am

probably the bathroom!

592
Michelle August 24, 2012 at 9:16 am

My husband always does the vacuuming, and I bet he would love to have it crossed off his “honey-do” list! This would be awesome!

593
Shelli August 24, 2012 at 9:16 am

I would love to put in my small salon!!!! Oh, happy day!!!

594
Dalis August 24, 2012 at 9:17 am

AManda, first of all… that sticker is super adorable!!!!!! Second I need this vacuum!!!! First thing that needs cleaning when company is around is the kitchen…. hate cleaning the kitchen!

— dalis

595
Kayle (The Cooking Actress) August 24, 2012 at 9:17 am

When company is coming over I clean the kitchen-bc I always know that is going to be a mess, otherwise.

596
Lydia August 24, 2012 at 9:18 am

My living room, dining room, and kitchen are all connected as one room, so this is generally where I start. Our vacuum cleaner is about to die, so this would be a fun and very practical giveaway to win! :)

597
Anne Clifford August 24, 2012 at 9:18 am

When company is coming over (if the cleaning isn’t done already) I clean bathroom, living room, floors. in that order :) I have a lot of carpet… it’d be nice to win! :D

598
Leslie L August 24, 2012 at 9:18 am

The living room and kitchen get vacuumed whenever company is coming over and for that matter on a daily basis! We have 3 golden retrievers inside and if I don’t vacuum daily, it’s a mess! Having a vacuum like the NEATO would sure save me some time!! Thanks for the giveaway!

599
Beth Collins August 24, 2012 at 9:18 am

Wipe down the bathroom counters and put out fresh hand towels.

600
Lisa Parent August 24, 2012 at 9:19 am

Bathrooms first (I have 5 kids!), then kitchen, then floors!

601
Keri-Danielle August 24, 2012 at 9:19 am

The FIRST thing I clean is the bathroom!!

602
Beth August 24, 2012 at 9:19 am

You would think having twin dogs (Samoyeds, very hairy, age 14) and twin kids (not too hairy, age 5), the thought of company coming over would be daunting. My former type A self has now turned into a B after the twins were born (well, maybe A-) so I try (emphasis on try) not to worry about all the little things. I do however, make sure the sheets on the guest bed are clean and smelling like something you just want to wrap yourself into. I also always put out a tray of home made goodies (usually choc chip cookies), fruit, fresh flowers and of course, chocolate! Hmmm, that sure sounds type A doesn’t it?! All of this to say, I ALWAYS vacuum because of the plethora of dog hair and cookie crumbs. :)

603
Melissa Kubishke August 24, 2012 at 9:19 am

I think I would have to start in the kitchen area/sunroom. We have an African Grey Parrot and he is always dropping his pellets on the floor! Our house is like a zoo with the bird, cats and yellow lab. Any room in my house would benefit from this little robot guy. Thanks for the chance to win!!

604
Sandy Young August 24, 2012 at 9:20 am

I usually dust really quick and then sweep. If I have a neato then I could use it on the hardwood floors.

605
Jessica L August 24, 2012 at 9:20 am

I always clean the living room and kitchen first. I clean top to bottom.

606
Stacy August 24, 2012 at 9:20 am

I always make sure the dishes are done and the kitchen is organized, but I also empty trash and wipe down counters in the bathroom! I think I’ve mastered the art of speed-cleaning :)

607
Lauri August 24, 2012 at 9:20 am

I clean the kitchen first — it’s the first room they’ll see when they walk in our house! :)

608
Erin August 24, 2012 at 9:21 am

I always clean my bathroom first! No one wants to get clean in a dirty place! :)

609
Regina August 24, 2012 at 9:22 am

Oh please, please, please pick me! I have 2 cats, a 4-year old and a husband. The pet hair and crumbs totally stress me out. Who has time to vacuum every day? What do I clean first? It’s a tie between the floors and the kitchen.

610
Danielle Breedlove August 24, 2012 at 9:23 am

The very first thing I clean before guests arrive is the guest bathroom. We don’t often us the guest bathroom so it always has a layer of dust and dog hair debris.

Thanks for the chance to win! We are moving into our brand new home next week and this vacuum would be so wonderful to have!! Have a great weekend!!

611
Chandra August 24, 2012 at 9:23 am

I always clean my kitchen first. With a busy family like ours the counters are always cluttered and the sunk always has dishes! I love the idea of this vacuum making my life easier!

612
Ruby Showalter August 24, 2012 at 9:24 am

I pick up all the junk that’s laying around on the bar and kitchen counter! If I get time, I get the broom out. This wonderful giveaway would help solve that problem!!! (=

613
Dacia August 24, 2012 at 9:24 am

First I clean the kitchen counters, everyone always seems to watch to stand in the kitchen. Then onto the floors, the battle against sock fuzz!

614
Jenn August 24, 2012 at 9:24 am

Oh, this is just what we need to take care of our shedding labrador retriever! I always tackle the kitchen island first when we have company coming, it tends to become the general dumping ground for anything coming into the house.

615
Denise Lane August 24, 2012 at 9:25 am

Vacumn living room…black chow/mix. After that I head for the bathrooms.

Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 9:25 am

I first spend a little time decluttering – getting those few things that inevitably don’t get put away and getting them back to their homes. Then dust, vacuum, bathrooms and lastly the kitchen. :)

617
Rachael August 24, 2012 at 9:25 am

I would love to win this as with 2 little kids and a dog are always leaving behind a mess. With my chronic back pain and allergies…this would be such a blessing. The first thing I clean before company comes is the toilet. Close second is the kitchen sink. Thanks for posting this. I love your blog!

618
Kathleen F. August 24, 2012 at 9:25 am

First I run around an “pick up”, getting rid of the clutter. Then I clean the bathroom! If there’s time left before the doorbell rings, I run the vacuum around the carpets. Clean carpets make everything look better!

619
Angela August 24, 2012 at 9:26 am

Bathroom first, but with our golden retriever and all of her shedding, floors come in a close second!

620
Adrianne Miller August 24, 2012 at 9:26 am

Oh please let me win this! Our bathrooms are NASTY! That is where I’d run to first!

621
Erin August 24, 2012 at 9:26 am

I always tackle the bathroom first, it definitely gets the dirtiest! But there’s nothing like freshly vacuumed floors to make a space feel really clean.

622
Megan Z. August 24, 2012 at 9:26 am

This machine really looks “neato”! Sorry for the pun, I just couldn’t resist :) With 6 dogs and a cat it feels like I am always vacuuming. What an awesome giveaway! Thanks!

623
Ashley @ Josh & Ashley's World August 24, 2012 at 9:26 am

The first thing I clean is the counters! We tend to pile stuff up throughout the week and its quite an eye sore!

624
Sara August 24, 2012 at 9:27 am

I always make sure the kitchen is clean first, because that’s my favorite room to show off.

625
melissa August 24, 2012 at 9:27 am

Awesome! I own 2 golden retrievers and I NEED this. :)

626
Mollie August 24, 2012 at 9:27 am

OMG! The kids bathroom! Totally…

627
Ashley August 24, 2012 at 9:27 am

This amazing! I’ve always wanted a vacuum that would do it for me. I absolutely hate vacuuming. I would clean my living room floor and entryway first. I just got engaged two weeks ago, so this would be amazing to win! :)

628
Kelsey Taillon August 24, 2012 at 9:27 am

I am a little ocd, so I have to clean everything when someone is coming over! I start in the kitchen which is in the bottom floor and work my way around the house!

629
Emily August 24, 2012 at 9:28 am

We also have 2 Bostons. The first thing I clean is behind the bathroom doors. I hate to think guests come over… shut the bathroom door… and see all that Boston hair in the corner. Eww. :)

630
Hilarie August 24, 2012 at 9:28 am

Hmmm – I think I clean the kitchen first when company is coming. Things tend to get piled there, so they need to be dealt with in order for the room to look “clean”. Thanks for the chance to win – this thing looks awesome!!

631
cindi August 24, 2012 at 9:28 am

def the kitchen! then the entry way table.

632
Shelli August 24, 2012 at 9:28 am

Our living room. It’s the first room guests enter, so I do a quick run-around to make sure everything is picked up and the pillows are nice and fluffed. :)

633
jenica August 24, 2012 at 9:29 am

vacuum!!! :) i love the marks on the carpet!!!

634
Charlene August 24, 2012 at 9:30 am

The first thing I do is vacuum, of course! Then I clean the bathrooms!

635
Cheri Baby August 24, 2012 at 9:30 am

thanks for a giveaway =) I clean the bathrooms – hehe when you have kids, it’s the first place to check ;)

636
Missy K. August 24, 2012 at 9:30 am

When guest come I run to clean the bathrooms. I think you can tell alot about a house by the bathroom. While this prize wouldn’t help me clean the bathroom, it would be great to have it vacuum the rest of the house when I’m cleaning the bathroom. Thanks for the giveaway.

637
Judy August 24, 2012 at 9:31 am

family room and kitchen area that’s where we always end up…and bathrooms…everyone uses the bathroom! ;)

638
Holly August 24, 2012 at 9:32 am

The floors!

639
SEAS August 24, 2012 at 9:32 am

The Bathrooms!

640
Nicki Anderson August 24, 2012 at 9:32 am

This vacume is the COOLEST ! I would love to have it. Your little dogs are pretty darn cute too.
How do THEY like the vacume ?

641
Beverly August 24, 2012 at 9:32 am

I always start with the bathrooms. I would be embarrassed if they weren’t clean! Thank you for the giveaways, this one is awesome.

642
Kelly August 24, 2012 at 9:33 am

Floors!!

643
Martha S. August 24, 2012 at 9:34 am

The very first thing I clean off is the couch! The I usually have spread out my work on the couch and my nap blanket is always there. Then I head for the kitchen to clean…

Thanks for the opportunity! What a great giveaway!

644
Doris August 24, 2012 at 9:34 am

I LOVE clean floors so I start there and hope to finish before company arrives. Then if I have time I do a little dusting in the main living area. And make sure the kitchen is presentable since that is where everyone seems to congregate! I WOULD LOVE THIS SUPER DUPER TIME SAVER!!

645
Brenda August 24, 2012 at 9:34 am

The first thing I do is a quick pick up in the living area.

646
Paula Clifford August 24, 2012 at 9:35 am

Would love this Neato vacuum! After picking up my piles of stuff, the first thing I do before company comes over is vacuum. This would be an invaluable aid. Pick me! :-)

647
AmandaE August 24, 2012 at 9:35 am

I clean the bathroom first, followed by the kitchen since those are the two rooms I know company will be in.

648
Jacqui August 24, 2012 at 9:36 am

The first thing I do when I know company is coming over, ironically, is vacuum!! My dog sheds like crazy, so it is important that I try to get as much hair up as possible so I don’t cover my guests in it :-)

649
Christy F August 24, 2012 at 9:36 am

Would love this! Could be an early wedding present ;-)

650
Sheena August 24, 2012 at 9:37 am

I clean clutter in the living room (toys from 3 kiddos) and then head to the kitchen.
I need a new vacuum and this one looks amazing! Thanks

651
Shae August 24, 2012 at 9:37 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom. Then the living room. Hope I win that vacuum looks awesome!!

652
Kim Bell August 24, 2012 at 9:37 am

OMG…I hear a choir begin singing as I read this post! This is what I have been looking for! We have a pug….just 1….but man does he shed! The first thing I clean is the bathroom and then I vacuum!! It would be so awesome to win one of these!

653
mary d'eramo August 24, 2012 at 9:37 am

Thanks for the giveaway!
A gardener husband (who thinks he is neat…not..lol!) and dog (Olde English Sheepdog….need I say more!) are two of the reasons I would LOVE this vacuum!~

Mary

654
~*kristi*~ August 24, 2012 at 9:38 am

I always clean the family room first, and with two cats, there’s always a lot of cat hair around! This would be SO useful to have!!

655
Betsy August 24, 2012 at 9:38 am

Love it! And so would my carpets. Living room by far is the room needing this machine

656
Ethel B. August 24, 2012 at 9:38 am

Clean bathroom first then living room.

657
Sharon August 24, 2012 at 9:38 am

The first thing I do is vacuum all the dog and cat hair up from my two basset hounds and my three felines!

awesome giveaway!!! thank you!!

658
Christy F August 24, 2012 at 9:38 am

Would love this! Could be an early wedding present! ;-)

659
Julie Paquette August 24, 2012 at 9:40 am

I always clean the kitchen first. Who wants to look at dirty dishes? Id love this little sucker in my house!!! Pick me! Pick me!!

660
Jennie August 24, 2012 at 9:40 am

I dust the tables in the family room. Thanks for the chance to win!

661
Karen August 24, 2012 at 9:40 am

The very first thing I always clean is my bathroom then I vaccum all the carpets and steps to get dog and cat hair off — man this would be so awesome to win!!! with my disability it would be soooo much easier– fingers crossed hope I win

662
Melissa August 24, 2012 at 9:40 am

Oh, a mad dash to the bathroom and then a hurried round up in the living room! Wait….there is the scramble of dishes in the kitchen. Lets just say I am at a loss for unsuspected guests but everyone is welcome in our messy home!

663
Emilie August 24, 2012 at 9:41 am

My bathroom!! I never want my guests to have a bad bathroom experience :)

664
Lauren P August 24, 2012 at 9:41 am

The first thing I do is pick up is the clutter so I can actually clean!!

665
Sharon August 24, 2012 at 9:42 am

With 2 boys in the house, the bathroom always gets cleaned first!!!

666
Terri Carter August 24, 2012 at 9:42 am

The first thing i clean when company is coming is the bathroom! No one room says more about the cleanliness of your home more than the bathroom!

667
Laura August 24, 2012 at 9:42 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom. Cleaning the floors is a close second because we have two kids, a dog and two cats – they get gross!

668
Caroline August 24, 2012 at 9:42 am

The living room first since that’s where everyone sits down first.

669
Jenn @ Frost Bites August 24, 2012 at 9:43 am

Oooooh, I would love to win these. Having a robot vacuum for me would me awesome. I love seeing those vacuum lines myself….and more often.

670
Lisa Ure August 24, 2012 at 9:44 am

I do a quick clutter check starting at the front door and working my way back to the kitchen where everyone seems to end up, then I pull out my pathetic old vacuum and try to get the floors clean. I have my fingers crossed to win the Neato vacuum–it looks like a lifesaver.

671
Jennifer Heine August 24, 2012 at 9:45 am

Oh my heavens – I would LOVE this amazing vacuum! With a house full of boys, animals, and busy schedules, this would be an awesome addition to our home. Thank you for the giveaway! :)

672
Holly August 24, 2012 at 9:45 am

The bathroom is always the first place I make sure is clean, but with our pet situation (4 dogs, 4 cats), my main concern is with the smell of the house and the pet hair on the floor/furniture. A robotic vacuum would make my life so much easier!

673
Brandi August 24, 2012 at 9:45 am

I hate to admit it, but clean?? Who has time for that!?! I spend the time before company comes over picking up clutter and doing minimal spot cleaning of the whole house and keeping my fingers crossed that they don’t look too cl0se at anything. Not that it matters. The kids have undone most of the work 10 seconds after I am done anyways. :)

674
Sara S August 24, 2012 at 9:45 am

What a fun giveaway! I always give the bathroom a good wipedown….just in case. ;)

675
Erin August 24, 2012 at 9:45 am

I head to the kitchen first – dishes out of the sink, crumbs off the counters & the table. Then to the living room to wrangle all the toys and make it look like a living room, not a toy store. I would adore a vacuum that vacuumed for me to keep all the goldfish cracker and Cheerios crumbs cleaned up.

676
Christine August 24, 2012 at 9:46 am

The first thing I clean is our great room/kitchen.. .and that includes vacuuming! ;)

677
Lydia Woodall August 24, 2012 at 9:46 am

When company is coming over I start with the kitchen because it is in the middle of my house. In addition it’s the room where everyone dumps there stuff. After I get the rooms picked up I vacuum. I would love to win this vacuum. We have 3 dogs and our 5yr old Dyson Animal is on its last leg. I’ve been researching new ones. Thanks!

678
tishey August 24, 2012 at 9:47 am

i clean the kitchen. it’s the focus of our living room, so if it looks clean the rest of the house does too. but with 2 dogs and a toddler, i vacuum all the time. i would love to have one that does it for me!

679
Kaylene August 24, 2012 at 9:47 am

The floors are absolutely the first thing I clean! With two dogs and a cat it gets pretty hairy. Also, my daughter is 6 months old and will soon be crawling so I’d love to have a perpetually clean floor for her! I’ve been dreading the pet hair she might pick up from being mobile around the house.

680
Sandra Carbonell August 24, 2012 at 9:47 am

When we have last minute company coming, the floors get a quick vacuuming and sweeping and then the bathroom get a quick cleaning as well.

With dogs, this vacuum would be wonderful!!!

681
Kristi S. August 24, 2012 at 9:48 am

The floors! I sweep the floors first when I learn that company is coming over! :)

682
Crystal Neros August 24, 2012 at 9:49 am

We live on a little hobby farm with horses, barn cats, a yellow lab who’s in and out, and a full time housecat. YES – we do need to vacuum ALL the time! This would be so awesome and would cut my cleaning time each night after work – probably in half!

683
Katherine D. August 24, 2012 at 9:49 am

I always start back in the bedrooms and move forward to the family room but the room that needs it the most is the laundry/mud room. I think if I had a vacuum that did the work I could just schedule the mud room every evening and my life would be infinately better :)

684
Jamie Seals August 24, 2012 at 9:49 am

The front room! That is were my sweet little one plays alot and we vacuum it daily.

685
jan August 24, 2012 at 9:49 am

The living room… it’s the first thing they see.

686
Kelly Jo August 24, 2012 at 9:49 am

I have dark furniture, so no matter how often I dust it always seems to have a film on it. So when I know company is on it’s way over, that’s definitely the first thing I do!

687
Cheryl August 24, 2012 at 9:50 am

I vacuum twice a week (I have a dog with allergies) so I usually only have to tidy up the guest bathroom and wash or put any dishes into the dishwasher.

Very cool!

688
Mary August 24, 2012 at 9:50 am

I rush to clean the family room!

689
Erika August 24, 2012 at 9:50 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom, then I vacuum!

690
Nicole August 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

The bathroom! Even if it is just a short visit and no one uses it, I feel better knowing that it is clean. Then the kitchen because no matter what everyone ends up there sooner or later. I love this little machine – imagine with just a push of the button!

691
Kristy August 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

We have two hairy dogs-first thing I do is drag out the vacuum!

692
Trish Hook August 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

The first thing I do is pour myself a glass of wine! *must* taste test prior to serving guests.
Then I start clearing the clutter from the counters and kitchen table.
Cool vac!! I would love to have those purty lines all over my carpets.

693
andrea August 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

What a cool gadget! Bathrooms are the first to clean for company, but with this, I could do the floors at the same time!

694
Dawn in HSV August 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

Husky dog hair “tumbleweeds” and the bathrooms!

695
Peggy Does Cake August 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

I keep my house clean and neat, but when company is coming over, I like to run through and do a little de-cluttering.

696
Lisa August 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

First thing I clean is the bathrooms, then the kitchen! What a great giveaway!

697
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 9:52 am

I clean the living room, it’s the first room guests walk into!

698
Lisa August 24, 2012 at 9:52 am

The room where I am going to entertain and most certainly it’s going to be vacuumed right away. I too like others are constantly vacuuming with having an indoor dog!

699
Deanna Roumimper August 24, 2012 at 9:53 am

I have always wanted to try this, I love your ringing endorsement! I always vacuum first when company is coming over! :)

700
Jacque August 24, 2012 at 9:53 am

The vac sounds AMAZING!!! I’d go straight for the den, we live in our den and it’s hard to keep up with the dirt brought in by my farming husband, four grandchildren and oh yea, one messy crafter.

701
Lisa August 24, 2012 at 9:54 am

The kitchen floor.

702
Sheryl MGinnis August 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

The living room area rug because of all the traffic and the the hallway seems to collect alot of dirt.

703
Bethany August 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

Honestly, the first thing I clean is the floors – vacuum and sweep. My pup sheds and its a necessity!

704
Lorinda August 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

I clean the living room area . There are usually shoes and dog beds to move and pillows to pick up and put back onto the couch. Then onto the front bathroom which is the kids bathroom as well. Thank you for your giveaway the vacuum would be a wonderful help.

705
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 9:56 am

The kitchen is the first thing I clean. I have three kids and they are forever using cups and bowls and such. They are also really good at dropping food on the floor or spilling things. They are pretty good at cleaning up after themselves but they don’t always get everything.

706
Natalie August 24, 2012 at 9:56 am

I usually start with the kitchen while the hubs does the bathroom. Then we meet in the middle. I would love the neato forever for de-dog-hairing the floors!

707
Sunny August 24, 2012 at 9:57 am

I always clean the kitchen first.

708
Koren H August 24, 2012 at 9:57 am

My bathroom. :)

709
Sara August 24, 2012 at 9:57 am

I clean the bathrooms first, then the kitchen. Run the vacuum and pray they don’t see the dust. I love this vacuum! I would be overjoyed to win it!

710
Shelley August 24, 2012 at 9:57 am

I always clean the living room first, and then the bathrooms….the areas where people generally go to!

711
Aryn August 24, 2012 at 9:58 am

It’s usually the bathroom for obvious reasons, and my living room looks straight into my ktichen sink…so I always have to make sure all the dishes are donw and put away! I usually have to run the vaccuum to sweep up any stray dog hair (and whatever else) my little furball tracks in

712
Mimi August 24, 2012 at 9:58 am

If it’s short notice, family room first (and hope no one wants the house tour!). A quick declutter, hit any visible dust and cat hair on the furniture, then vacuum. If I’ve got any time left, I move to the guest bathroom. Gosh, it’d be great to have the Neato XV-21 doing the vacuuming while I did the rest! Loved your review – very detailed and informative.

713
Noelle August 24, 2012 at 9:59 am

HAHAHA, what is the first thing we clean……Our fish tank, we have a HUGE saltwater fish tank, sometimes I wonder if that is the only reason some people come to visit. We always give it a quick Windex on the outside and a quick clean on the inner glass before company shows up. Thanks for the chance to win the awesome vacuum!!

714
Monica August 24, 2012 at 9:59 am

we do a crazy power-straighten of the kitchen & living room. our place gets cluttered so quickly, it’s great to have someone come over & make us straighten up!

715
Sheryl MGinnis August 24, 2012 at 9:59 am

Since I work full time and recently had a knee replacement this gadget would be perfect to keep my living room clean and bedrooms when company comes. Hopefully my 2 Bostons will not chase after it like they do to my regular canister vacumn cleaner

716
Tracy August 24, 2012 at 9:59 am

Usually most of the clutter tends to be in the kitchen so that where I start first!

717
Patty August 24, 2012 at 10:00 am

Kitchen first then bathrooms, then floors…..all in a crazy frenzy! This vacuum looks awesome!

718
Meagan @ A Zesty Bite August 24, 2012 at 10:01 am

I love vacuum lines. We have two dogs and this would be amazing to have around the house to clean everything!!

719
Leigh Williams August 24, 2012 at 10:01 am

My floors always come first because they’re very open. And with them being hardwood, every speck of dust shows!

720
Ashley August 24, 2012 at 10:02 am

I always clean the bathrooms first, but the dark hardwood floors are a close second with owning a yellow lab!

721
Trish August 24, 2012 at 10:02 am

The bathroom!

722
Angela Leflett August 24, 2012 at 10:03 am

The first thing is the bathrooms.

723
Mimi August 24, 2012 at 10:03 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom, as it’s always the messiest part of the house!

724
Stacey August 24, 2012 at 10:03 am

The bathrooms!

725
Samantha Chapman August 24, 2012 at 10:03 am

The first thing I always clean is the living room – its the first room they see and they don’t need to see kids toys and mail scattered all over the counter. Then its quick to the kitchen and finally the bathroom. We certainly live in our house and don’t keep it “guest ready” until necessary :)

What a great giveaway – thanks for the opportunity!

726
Ginger Nelson August 24, 2012 at 10:04 am

Toilets!

727
Denise August 24, 2012 at 10:04 am

I clean the living room, that’s where we’ll be hanging out. We also hang out it in the kitchen of course, but since I will have been preparing food, no one will know if it started out clean or not!!

728
Debbie Haggard August 24, 2012 at 10:05 am

I clean the living room first. We have a maine coon cat that sheds!!!! The Neato would be wonderful to have at my house!!!!

729
Joyce Swenson August 24, 2012 at 10:05 am

My kitchen counter that is also part of the living room. It is the “dropping place” and is always FULL of STUFF.

730
Andrea August 24, 2012 at 10:06 am

I always start with the living room! My children think it is their “other” bedroom!

731
Shannon (PaperMadeBakery) August 24, 2012 at 10:06 am

The FIRST thing I clean are the floors downstairs by trudging out the ol’ Hoover. Wouldn’t it be lovely if the floors were always clean? I sure think so! Thanks so much for this fabulous opportunity to live one of my dreams! :-)

732
Hallie12409 August 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

I have to clean the kitchen and the floors. If they look okay, I can relax.

We have 3 cats and a dog, and there is so. much. hair.

733
Christine August 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

The living room floor!

734
Dominique August 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

Great giveaway!!!

The first thing I clean when company is coming over is — the GUEST BATHROOM :)

735
Lisa Broussard Januska August 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

My first thing to tackle is always the Guest baths, then the kitchen, as it will have been a wreck from all the cooking I do for any entertaining at our house. I save the floors for last, since any dust or loose crap from tables will be knocked off onto it. My Hubs and I have talked about one of these guys just recently, but the cost was a bit out of our range! To win one would be the talk of the neighborhood around here! Got my fingers crossed on this one!!!

736
amy August 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

the first thing i would clean would be the family room…always dirty wih the kids and dogs and cat…thank you!

737
Patty August 24, 2012 at 10:08 am

I pick up the clean, folded laundry off the couch!

738
Islandgirl8828 August 24, 2012 at 10:09 am

I always start with the bathroom first. However with this awesome vacuum- I could be doing the floors and the bathroom at the same time! Thanks for the giveaway

739
Claudia August 24, 2012 at 10:09 am

This would be so great!!! I have RA and 2 chihuahuas…let me tell you the two definitely don’t mix. BRA (that’s Before RA, lol) I loved to run the sweeper, every day! I love how the clean carpet feels on my feet, after all that was a big selling feature for purchasing the carpet. Then we got the 2 fur kids and I got RA =( The carpet has been sooo neglected. Even though they say that chihuahuas hardly shed, that’s not true at all or I have 2 of the exceptions =/ I could really put this to good use! Wondering how it will look with Chihuahua stickers!!! =)

740
Melissa August 24, 2012 at 10:09 am

The kitchen because that’s where my front door enters at….

741
Hanan August 24, 2012 at 10:10 am

Funny. I always vacuum first when company is coming over! Would love to win this!

742
Staci August 24, 2012 at 10:11 am

I clean the living room. If the rest of the house is a mess then I can try and keep people in there.

743
Leslie August 24, 2012 at 10:11 am

I always feel like I need to clean the living room first because it’s the place where everyone ends up hanging out no matter what the occassion is. Thanks for this giveaway!!!! :)

744
Kathryn August 24, 2012 at 10:12 am

I usually vacuum the floors first! (Love this vacuum!!)

745
cindy August 24, 2012 at 10:13 am

I always vacuum the living room it’s the room the company see’s first. If I win this my husband will be thrilled he’s always wanted a “good” vacuum. thanks

746
Heather August 24, 2012 at 10:14 am

I always clean the kitchen and make my husband clean the bathroom! ;-)

747
Suzanne August 24, 2012 at 10:14 am

To heck with dog hair on the floor, I could use it to get all the human hair my husband and I are so rapidly losing! lol!

748
Anna August 24, 2012 at 10:15 am

The kitchen! It is the hub of our house, covered in stacks of mail, homework, dirty dishes and dog bowls!

749
Karen August 24, 2012 at 10:15 am

Bathrooms always the bathrooms.

750
AnaBel August 24, 2012 at 10:16 am

The first room to get cleaned is the kitchen/family room – that’s the most cluttered. How nice it would be to clean the bathroom or kitchen and have this little guy vacuum for me at the same time! What a time saver, like my own little mini-maid! Thanks Amanda!

751
Lisa August 24, 2012 at 10:17 am

Vacuum! With a big dog and a long haired cat in the house, I can’t keep up!

752
Sarah T. August 24, 2012 at 10:17 am

Wow – how cool! The first thing I clean in our daughter’s playroom b/c it’s the first room you see when you walk in the house. Next? The kitchen b/c that’s where we tend to congregate!

753
SarahKL August 24, 2012 at 10:18 am

First I clear the clutter from the living room then clean the bathroom! I would LOVE to have this vacuum since we have a dog, a HORRIBLY SHEDDING cat, and a crawling baby! :)

754
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 10:18 am

I clean the first room they will be walking in first.. the kitchen– then the bathroom, then the living room.. and close the door to my bedroom.. no one needs to see that :)

thanks for the giveaway!

755
Michelle Wright August 24, 2012 at 10:19 am

The kitchen is the first thing I clean. This is the cats meowwwwwwwwwwww!! Thanks.

756
Jill August 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

Dear Kevin and Amanda,
When company is coming over, I first clean the guest bathroom. Then I pick up dog bones, balls, ropes, etc. so no one steps on them. My family needs the Neato Robot Vacuum cleaner! We have 2 teenage boys, two great dogs, and one cat. I could really put it to good use! I hope this is the ‘lucky’ random comment.

757
Nancy August 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

With 3 pets in the house, it’s always the floors! And the bathrooms, and messy kitchen counter!

758
Marley August 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

I clean the kitchen. All my other rooms stay pretty straight, but the kitchen always needs work! :) It is also one of the first rooms you see in the house.

759
Julie Klaus August 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

I clean the kitchen counters and sink before vacuuming :)

760
Lindsay M August 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

First thing is always our little girl’s toys! Then dishes which are inevitably filling the sink. :)

761
Diem Allis August 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

I first clean the living room and then the kitchen.

762
Mindy Kammerdiener August 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

The living room!

763
Katherine August 24, 2012 at 10:21 am

My kitchen floors! With a black dog who sheds it ALWAYS looks a mess of dog hair and crumbs! This would be a huge blessing and time saver!

764
Diem Allis August 24, 2012 at 10:22 am

The living room and kitchen.

765
LaShell B. August 24, 2012 at 10:22 am

The kitchen. I always do the kitchen first because I’m usually preparing snacks. I don’t want the guests to feel like they’re going to get food poisoning!

766
Christine M August 24, 2012 at 10:22 am

I clean the bathrooms or kitchen first!

767
Jamie August 24, 2012 at 10:22 am

I vacuum the livingroom carpet and rug first since we have 3 dogs and it’s impossible to keep clean.

768
Janice Whiting August 24, 2012 at 10:22 am

Sweet! The first thing I usually clean up is either the kitchen or living room since it is most likely where we will spend most of our time. :) Thanks for a chance to win a Neato!

769
Lisa Wolfe August 24, 2012 at 10:23 am

The bathroom and hardwood floors!

770
Amy A August 24, 2012 at 10:23 am

Our first job, and usually again the last job is the floor–carpets, hard wood and tile. With two cats and a dog we have so much hair to combat, not even to mention the dirt from the yard!! We vacuum and when we finish we still seem to have “tumbleweeds” of hair rolling across the floor when we are done! This vacuum would be amazing to win!!

771
Lulu August 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

The living room where company will come first. Then the bathroom–maybe they won’t want to use it!
Would love a Neato!

772
Deb August 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

It’s been so long since I’ve had company that I hardly remember. If company were coming today, I would have to start in the kitchen and proceed to the entire house, uhg.

773
Chris August 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

The kitchen is always the first place I check for cleaning.

774
Kimberly August 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

I clean the Living Room, because it’s the first room people see when they walk into the house! Then I head to the bathroom!

Thanks for the chance to win one of these! We are moving to a new house soon and our vacuum bit the dust…so now we are on the hunt for another one.

775
Tracy August 24, 2012 at 10:25 am

The living room.

776
Paula August 24, 2012 at 10:25 am

Neato….would be great if it vacuumed stairs/

777
Mandee J August 24, 2012 at 10:26 am

I straighten up when company is coming over. Sometimes we have to hide my scrapbooking mess, too!
We would love this vacuum! It looks amazing!

778
Marty August 24, 2012 at 10:26 am

We clean the kitchen first, as it’s the first room to enter. And it’s the heart of our living! It gets the first muddy paws, first dirt shoes,first snow tracked in, it’s just THE FIRST. lol Would love to have a little help. Thanks love your blog

779
Kelly August 24, 2012 at 10:26 am

I usually try to make sure my kitchen is super clean for company, that’s where we are usually hanging out eating yummy food and visiting!

780
Roma August 24, 2012 at 10:27 am

the kitchen….we usually end up there!!

781
Tiffany H August 24, 2012 at 10:27 am

The first thing I clean is the carpet in the living room. I too have two dogs and that’s where they like to hang out ;)

782
LoriU August 24, 2012 at 10:27 am

First thing I clean before company shows up is the bathroom! Don’t want them to be grossed out!

783
Ge-Anne Bowdoin August 24, 2012 at 10:28 am

I always clean the great room first. Then I go close all the doors and pray no one needs to use the kids’ bathroom (unless they remembered to pick up their bath toys!)

784
Karen H. August 24, 2012 at 10:28 am

Wow – what a neat machine!

785
Rose August 24, 2012 at 10:29 am

The kitchen, for sure. :) It’s always messy.

786
Gail August 24, 2012 at 10:29 am

I vacuume my dog leaves hair everywhere this would be wonderful addition to my house!

787
Meghan Phillips August 24, 2012 at 10:30 am

Great giveaway!

I always clean the entryway first–the rug there is dark and collects our dog’s white hair.

788
Matt McCallon August 24, 2012 at 10:30 am

The living room since it’s what you see first! Of course, that’s followed by a very close second place; bathroom.

789
Karen August 24, 2012 at 10:30 am

When company comes the first thing I clean are my dishes. I love to cook so to entertain properly I’ve got to have clean dishes.

790
Marsha August 24, 2012 at 10:31 am

Kitchen, kitchen, kitchen. Are home is a big open are with the kitchen, dining, and living room all meshing together. The dining room and living room are always clean but for me, I don’t have a dishwasher so I’m always doing dishes.

791
Marsha August 24, 2012 at 10:31 am

First of all I fluff the pillows and hide eveything in the laundry room that does not belong in the den, shoes, etc. Then tidy up the kitchen and bathrooms and then I’ll try and vaccuum. I have a bulky vaccuum cleaner and it’s a job to get out, empty and put away. Especially with two kids, one running around and one crawling!

792
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 10:32 am

I always clean the bathrooms first.

793
Athena R August 24, 2012 at 10:32 am

We generally tackle the living room first when company is coming over.

794
Angie August 24, 2012 at 10:32 am

I ALWAYS start with the kitchen. It truly is the heart of my home. I can not function if the kitchen is a mess…no matter if no one is actually going to be in there or not : )

795
Deanna C August 24, 2012 at 10:34 am

I would vacuum the floors (carpet and tile) for some reason people like to take off there shoes when they come into our house???

796
Jane August 24, 2012 at 10:35 am

The first thing I clean when company’s coming is the living room, then the kitchen. Then bathrooms if I have enough time. Wouldn’t it be great to let the vacuum do the work?!

797
Sarah G August 24, 2012 at 10:35 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming over is the family room. First I dust, then vacuum!

798
Lisa Z August 24, 2012 at 10:36 am

We vacuum the kitchen and sunroom floor because that is where our two Golden Retrievers live and shed!!

799
Linda L August 24, 2012 at 10:36 am

The kitchen. That’s where the clutter lands in my house, so that’s where I start. Thanks for the great give away!

800
Sue B. August 24, 2012 at 10:36 am

I clear off the kitchen island and coffee tables!

801
Linda August 24, 2012 at 10:36 am

Wow!! Another awesome giveaway!!
I always clean the bathroom. Then I move on to the kitchen and living room.

802
Kathy August 24, 2012 at 10:37 am

What a great give away!! I have always thought that an automatic vacuum would be great. With 2 dogs and 2 cats, we vacuum all the time! Thanks for the chance!

803
Andrea Roberts August 24, 2012 at 10:37 am

My kitchen for sure!!! It is the center of my house, where all the clutter is.

804
Kelly August 24, 2012 at 10:37 am

First thing I clean is the bathroom. This looks like such a cool vacuum.

805
Mona August 24, 2012 at 10:38 am

Thanks for this amazing giveaway. Well, I always clean the bathrooms first and put a candle on so that it smells clean too.

806
Jana S August 24, 2012 at 10:38 am

I straighten up and get rid of all of our piles of stuff around. makes a huge difference!

807
Rheanna August 24, 2012 at 10:39 am

the first thing I clean is the dining area/living room…..its where all our seating is and its the biggest area. i can’t wait to see if I win!!

808
Alyssa August 24, 2012 at 10:42 am

always the bathroom first.

809
Cydne August 24, 2012 at 10:42 am

I, unfortunately, am a piler, do I have to clean off counter-tops and other horizontal surfaces.

810
jenna August 24, 2012 at 10:42 am

the bathrooms. nobody likes a dirty bathroom!

811
my life in tune August 24, 2012 at 10:42 am

What a cool vacuum–I’ve never heard of it before!

812
Lindsay August 24, 2012 at 10:42 am

The kitchen… crumbs, dust, bits of leaves tracked in from outside… it’s always in need of some help! :)

813
Meghan Fryer August 24, 2012 at 10:42 am

I want one of these SOOOO BAD! I have 3 Stepchildren, one on the way, a husband, and a big furry bengal cat. This would be a great addition for our growing family. Thanks!!

814
Megan August 24, 2012 at 10:43 am

I clean off the kitchen counters first when someone is coming over.

815
Allison R. August 24, 2012 at 10:43 am

The kitchen first! It’s the first place people go.

816
Dawn Ritz August 24, 2012 at 10:45 am

So cool! I always clean the living room first–especially the toy corner!

817
Judi August 24, 2012 at 10:47 am

The kitchen. Always the kitchen first!! :)

818
Corrie August 24, 2012 at 10:48 am

The living/dining/kichen area, if necessary. If not…the guest bath. :o)

819
Gretta August 24, 2012 at 10:48 am

I always clean the bathroom first and then make sure the floors are cleaned

820
Rebecca August 24, 2012 at 10:48 am

I usually start with the bathrooms and get them out of the way. Then I dust and do the floors, which is the major part of the routine! This vacuum looks to good to be true, can it really as easy as pressing a button?!

I have gotten some really great recipes from your site, I love it!! Thanks for all your help!

Rebecca Walker

821
Cheri August 24, 2012 at 10:48 am

First I clean the kitchen, then living room (they are combined greatroom) then the bathroom and foyer. This vacuum looks amazing!

822
Heidi August 24, 2012 at 10:49 am

I try to vacuum a day before company comes over. With two Boston Terriers (sounds familiar right?) it’s imperative to get as much of their dog hair up off the carpet and furniture in advance. The last thing I want is a bunch of dog hair floating around in the air when people are over at the house.

823
Bre August 24, 2012 at 10:49 am

the first thing i clean are my floors. we have 2 big german shepard/huskie dogs and boy does the hair fall off them!!! daily i have to sweep and vacuum because of them :) this would help so much. I also work full time and have 4 children. Time is not something I have a lot of. Thank you Amanda :)

824
Melinda Wilson August 24, 2012 at 10:49 am

The first thing I clean is the living room because that’s were our dogs live LOL!

825
Kristen August 24, 2012 at 10:49 am

The living room followed by the kitchen.

826
Lindsay August 24, 2012 at 10:51 am

Besides the toilets (the rest of the bathroom doesn’t have to be spotless, just clean toilets!!), I start with the kitchen. A clean kitchen is important. It’s where everyone congregates, and where real messes occur. :) And the Neato would be PERFECT to help manage the crumbs, and dirt, and doggy hair on the floor!!! :)

827
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 10:51 am

The living room!

828
Cyndi August 24, 2012 at 10:52 am

Funny enough, I always pick up toys, etc on the floor so I can vacuum. Between the dog & the cat, I NEED to vacuum at least twice a day, but can’t always because of the mess the kids leave. So I always start with vacuuming/sweeping so I can mop. Then I can get away with one more quick vacuum right before company comes. Winning this would be a DREAM come true!

829
Adela August 24, 2012 at 10:52 am

Vacuuming is the worst and satisfying at the same time. My poor house could really use more vacuuming….

830
Marisa August 24, 2012 at 10:52 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom.

831
Tracey August 24, 2012 at 10:53 am

The kitchen and kitchen table gets cleaned up first…it’s the first place most visitors will see when they walk in…and the kitchen table is where EVERYTHING gets dumped when we get home! :-)

832
Andrea August 24, 2012 at 10:53 am

Living room as that’s where we spend the majority of our time. Then I frantically survey the rest of the house for clutter that must be contained… A 15 month old will do that to you. Then the bathrooms – all of them – because whatever one I don’t clean is the one they use!!

833
Lisa Yakovich August 24, 2012 at 10:53 am

OH..I’ve wanted one of these for a while!! I have pergo in my kitchen and dining room and it’s all combined…so I’d used it there.

834
Elaine August 24, 2012 at 10:53 am

I have 5 Bostons and this would be wonderful to let it do my vacuuming!

835
Amber D. August 24, 2012 at 10:54 am

Kitchen & bathrooms! This vacuum looks amazing!

836
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 10:54 am

I always clean the bathrooms and kitchen! This vacuum looks awesome!! :)

837
Amy August 24, 2012 at 10:56 am

Always the main bathroom! It’s right by the front door and it seems like it’s ALWAYS out of toilet paper! (Don’t want to leave a guest stranded!)

838
Sue from Oregon August 24, 2012 at 10:56 am

Oh how neat…new to me! The first thing I clean is the living room! Contain the company in there. LOL!

839
Elizabeth from Indy August 24, 2012 at 10:56 am

I pick up all of the kids’ toys on the living room floor! :)

840
Andrea Williams August 24, 2012 at 10:57 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom !

841
Tiffany August 24, 2012 at 10:58 am

I dust and vacuum before company comes … that is usually enough to make the place look presentable. I’d love to give this robot vacuum a try, although I’ve always preferred bags because canisters are so messy.

842
marly z. August 24, 2012 at 10:58 am

The first thing I do is dust. Then, it’s floors, kitchen, and bath. I’m exhausted just thinking about it.

843
Sandy August 24, 2012 at 10:59 am

Eeep that looks amazing! Thanks for the chance to win. The first thing I clean up is DOG HAIR…it’s everywhere!!! :)

844
carly gonzalez August 24, 2012 at 11:00 am

I always clean the living room first. We have three dogs who think the living room is their kingdom and the floors are always in need of a good cleaning! This would be amazingly perfect for us! Thanks for the giveaway :)

845
Brandy August 24, 2012 at 11:01 am

My kitchen. Definitely, hands down. I love to cook, so it’s always a bit in disarray.

846
roy August 24, 2012 at 11:01 am

I’ll check out the bathroom to make sure it’s presentable and pick up whatever’s on the floor.

847
Heather August 24, 2012 at 11:01 am

I have to clean the kitchen first, it is the heart of our home and where we usually spend our time visiting.

848
Julie August 24, 2012 at 11:03 am

It’s usually a mad dash putting stuff away that are on the flat surfaces…coffee table, kitchen, etc. :)What’s that quote I’ve seen….I get more cleaning done in 10 minutes before company comes than than the whole rest of the week! haha.

849
Melinda V August 24, 2012 at 11:03 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom!!

850
NancyJo August 24, 2012 at 11:04 am

I will very quickly do a clutter pick-up in the foyer, living room and kitchen (open concept area) and then head to the bathroom for a quick freshening. It would be amazing to have a robot do all the vacuuming!

851
Mandy August 24, 2012 at 11:04 am

I always clean the toliet first!

852
Amy N August 24, 2012 at 11:05 am

The kitchen and then the bathroom! This vacuum looks awesome!

853
Jessica S. August 24, 2012 at 11:06 am

Vacuuming is definitely the first thing I do when I know someone’s coming over. I have 2 large dogs and 1 small one so we always have dog hair to vacuum. This would be nice to have for in between days I vacuum.

854
Cortney Van Weerdhuizen August 24, 2012 at 11:06 am

First thing I do is straighten the downstairs!

855
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 11:07 am

When I’m expecting company, I make sure the living room is clean before anything else! It’s the first thing my guests see, so I want to make sure it’s warm and inviting. Since I have a Pomeranian and a cat, I already know this could be a huge help!

856
erin August 24, 2012 at 11:08 am

I have to clean my kitchen, including the dreaded peninsula where we dump everything. This would take so much stress off for those days! Thanks.

857
Kealey Bird August 24, 2012 at 11:08 am

I could so use this with animals and kids that is in my house

858
amanda d August 24, 2012 at 11:09 am

I’ve never heard of this vacume! How cool!

859
Shannon August 24, 2012 at 11:09 am

I have to vacumn because my Boston always breaks treats up all over the carpet!! I wish she was a vacumn cleaner when it comes to her eating them. :)

860
Erin A August 24, 2012 at 11:10 am

First thing I do is pick up the toys and then move on to the kitchen island which is always a dumping ground. I hope the Neato would be able to navigate around the toys. :)

861
Krissy August 24, 2012 at 11:10 am

I clean up my living room since that is the first room they see when they come to the front door. Thanks for a great giveaway.

862
Brittney August 24, 2012 at 11:10 am

Clean the bathroom! I’m always mortified when someone just stops by and I know the bathroom is not clean!

863
Diane August 24, 2012 at 11:10 am

The guest bathroom, because it’s my sons’ main bathroom~ followed by the living room (first thing people see when they walk in) & the kitchen, which opens into the l.r. I would so LOVE to have one of these vacuums~ with 1 dog & 2 cats shedding it would be awesome to have the floors cleaned automatically! :-)

864
nancy August 24, 2012 at 11:14 am

Table tops and counter tops (bathroom & kitchen) get CLEANED!!

865
Jamie August 24, 2012 at 11:14 am

It’s a toss-up between the kitchen and the bathroom, they both always seem to be cleaned :)

866
Caitlin August 24, 2012 at 11:14 am

The kitchen

867
Jodi Jenson August 24, 2012 at 11:14 am

This vacuum would be a dream come true!

868
Michelle August 24, 2012 at 11:15 am

This would really come in handy with 2 cats, 1 dog, 2 kids, and hubby!!! We make lots of messes!!!

869
Melissa August 24, 2012 at 11:15 am

What a cool give-away! Thank you so much :)

870
Amanda Taylor August 24, 2012 at 11:15 am

I clean the living room and kitchen and hide everything else! Haha!

871
Julie August 24, 2012 at 11:16 am

The bathroom! toilet, counter, mirror and shake the rugs.
What an awesome vacuum!!

872
MeganM. August 24, 2012 at 11:16 am

The first thing I always clean is vacuum the living room. And then the dishes. This little machine looks fabulous! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

873
Whitney W August 24, 2012 at 11:17 am

I always clean the bathroom and kitchen first when people coming over, but I love clean floors. I have 12 month old twin boys and baby boy #3 due oct 2nd. With my twins being curious and into everything I have to vacuum every day so they don’t eat any bugs, dirt or grass that gets tracked in throughout the day. This giveaway would be such a blessing for us!!!

874
Evil Pixie August 24, 2012 at 11:19 am

First thing I clean is the living room because that is where everyone will end up. The second thing is the bathroom.

875
Christie Ryan August 24, 2012 at 11:20 am

I always dust everywhere then vacuum.

876
Kim Hogan August 24, 2012 at 11:20 am

The first thing I clean when company is coming over…..hmmm let’s see….uhhh EVERYTHING!!! I have 5 kids and 3 dogs, so everything needs cleaning. We have an infinite amount of dog hair on our floors, our furniture and any where dog hair can hide. I need to vacuum like 3 times a day some days. With the kids they track stuff in the house all the time. I try to keep up, but it’s tough. I’d definitely LOVE a new vacuum.

877
Tonya R August 24, 2012 at 11:20 am

I always clean the bathroom, then vacuum. Rush, rush, rush!

878
bdaiss August 24, 2012 at 11:21 am

What a fortunate day to find your lovely blog! I always start with the kitchen…because it’s usually in the worst shape and it’s the first thing folks see. : ) We’ve had a Roomba (the kids call it Chase Vacuum) for awhile, but it seems to be failing in it’s duty. Your Mr. MagNeato is neat-o! I love that it keeps track of where it’s been, unlike the Roomba. And if it works with your pups, it should handle our two cats! Thanks for the chance. Now…off to the archives!

879
Patty August 24, 2012 at 11:21 am

I always start with the bathrooms. After cleaning everything above ground, I sweep the floors onto the hall carpet b4 I mop them. The Neato would be great for picking up the swept mess from the carpet. We have 3 dogs so you can imagine how bad our floors get!

880
Trish August 24, 2012 at 11:21 am

That thing really picks up dog hair? Because my current vacuum fails completely at getting all the hair!

As for company, the first thing I clean is the bathrooms to get it out of the way. I hate cleaning bathrooms! The last thing I do is vacuum so I have pretty tracks in the carpet when company walks in.

881
maribeth August 24, 2012 at 11:22 am

First thing I clean is the living room! My place opens up right to it but its the place we hang out the most so its always in need of fixing. This vaccum is neat!

882
Kate August 24, 2012 at 11:23 am

The bathrooms! Then, vacuum, of course!!

883
Debbie August 24, 2012 at 11:23 am

I vacuum of course! By hand………Not so neato :(

884
Morgan August 24, 2012 at 11:25 am

Definitely the bathrooms!! Followed by the kitchen

885
Jessie Kay August 24, 2012 at 11:26 am

I have two small boys … so the first thing we pick up is toys – especially their legos!

886
Rachael August 24, 2012 at 11:26 am

I always spruce up the family room and kitchen!

887
Sabrina August 24, 2012 at 11:26 am

When someone is coming to visit, I usually clean the main floor bathroom first (my kids leave some awful messes there), then I put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, then vac the living room and front room.

888
Michelle Underwood August 24, 2012 at 11:26 am

I clean the kitchen and living room…first floors, then counter tops! Great giveaway!

889
Parker August 24, 2012 at 11:26 am

With two dogs, it’s a tie between the floors and the front window. You see, their the cold, wet noses leave marks on the window and their hair is EVERYWHERE!

890
Kathee kiefer August 24, 2012 at 11:27 am

I head straight to the bathroom and make sure it is sparkly clean!

891
anita August 24, 2012 at 11:28 am

What’s the first thing you clean when company is coming over?
definitley my living room because that’s what they’ll see and hang out at.
then it’s my kitchen which is usually a hot mess.

892
Sarah August 24, 2012 at 11:29 am

I clean the living room first but the kitchen is a very close second.

893
francisca dessin August 24, 2012 at 11:29 am

wish it could suck the food right off my dirty dishes :)…I always clean the kitchen first, instead of calling the dog in to clean the floor…I could use this vacuum….

894
Lisa B Reid August 24, 2012 at 11:30 am

I start with the Bathrooms, then kitchen and living areas. Thanks for a chance to win a very cool vacuum!!

895
S Blair August 24, 2012 at 11:30 am

Living room clutter first, then the bathrooms and kitchen (the kitchen has non-stop visits with 3 young men!) Would love this vacuum if it’s a great as it sounds!

896
Kathee kiefer August 24, 2012 at 11:31 am

I head straight to the bathroom and make sure it is sparkling clean

897
Stephanie Gimlin August 24, 2012 at 11:31 am

Everything lol! Toys, then dusting then finally vacuuming- but we have so much dog hair that it would help with the dust just to be able to keep the dog hair under control! I would love this!!

Stephanie

898
Amy August 24, 2012 at 11:31 am

I’m a lucky girl – my husband does A LOT of the cleaning! But I always like to start in the kitchen and then make my way to the bathroom. I LOVE a freshly vacuumed floor, though – so it’d be great to come home everyday to one!

899
Andrea August 24, 2012 at 11:33 am

The first thing I clean is the guest bathroom and kitchen sink/counters. If there is time I vacuum and sweep….I have a lab so dog hair is always everywhere!

900
Audrey Spencer August 24, 2012 at 11:33 am

I think the kitchen and bathrooms should be the cleanest areas, so I usually start there. That little vacuum is so neat! I hope I win!

901
Suzanne August 24, 2012 at 11:34 am

I always clean the bathrooms first!

902
Elaine August 24, 2012 at 11:34 am

How nice to see something else hard at work while I do other things! I would LOVE to win this, but only if you tell me where you got the cool Boston decal. My “nephew” is a Boston.

903
jaime layton August 24, 2012 at 11:35 am

I hide all my clutter.

904
MaryB August 24, 2012 at 11:35 am

I clean the bathrooms first and then the floors since we have pets – pet hair is always around!

905
Vicki Barnes August 24, 2012 at 11:35 am

The first thing I clean is the bathroom! I have 4 kids and 3 are boys and I’m so afraid that company will have to use the restroom and it be messy.

906
Susan August 24, 2012 at 11:36 am

The kitchen table! It seems to be our catch-all when we come home from work. If I don’t stay on top of it (and I rarely do) things can get out of hand. Then I have to run the vaccum because of the 2 dogs.

907
Sandy August 24, 2012 at 11:36 am

I start with the bathrooms and then the living room floors and sofas. I have a dog that doesn’t shed, but that is made up for by the cat who sheds enough for both of them! It would be great to start the Neato on the living room floors while I touch up the bathrooms. Thanks for a chance to win.

908
Sandy August 24, 2012 at 11:37 am

With two dogs and a cat, keeping the floors clean is a daily battle! If I skip a day, I could almost make another animal from the pet hair I sweep up :) With company coming, I make sure the floors are clean, then I tackle the guest bathroom and the pile of newspapers that multiply when my back is turned. I would love, love, love to have a vacuum cleaner like this!

909
Kendra S. August 24, 2012 at 11:39 am

The first thing I clean is the living room and any other area that is visible when first entering the house. :)

910
Sophia August 24, 2012 at 11:39 am

My foyer table! It is the dumping ground for everything! Mail, dog leash, phones, empty bottles, socks… yeah, kids are awesome! LOL!

911
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 11:39 am

The bathroom! I feel like it always needs to be the cleanest when company comes over! :)

912
Ashley R. August 24, 2012 at 11:39 am

Our Living room! Always right before someone comes over too!

913
Amanda August 24, 2012 at 11:40 am

Because we have 2 dogs and 2 cats, I always vacuum the living and dining rooms first. There’s usually enough hair on the floor to make a sweater or two if we don’t vacuum nearly every day. The Neato would change my life! :-)

914
Shelley Courington August 24, 2012 at 11:40 am

I clean my floors! And then the kitchen, but the floors are always first!

915
Elizabeth Rhyneer August 24, 2012 at 11:40 am

Living room because the dog has normally taken all his toys out.
Thank you

916
Danis August 24, 2012 at 11:41 am

I always go to the bathrooms first. But then the kitchen and especailly sweep the floor and wipe down the counters. With 2 kids and 3 dogs, we always have a dirty floor!

Thanks for the chance to win! Sounds really neat!

917
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 11:42 am

The guest bathroom! And vacuuming the family room. And what a spectacular birthday present this would be – fingers and toes crossed because today is my birthday!! :D

918
Jen W August 24, 2012 at 11:42 am

The living room!

919
Erika Moore August 24, 2012 at 11:42 am

The first thing I clean when I have company coming over is my couch. My cats love to lay all over my couch causing a fur ball mess! I also have a husky who no joke leaves tumbleweeds of hair rolling around my floor. These fur-babies of ours are high maintenance & I think this vacuum would be perfect for my husky’s shedding.

920
Jennifer B. August 24, 2012 at 11:42 am

First thing I do is clean the powder room and the kitchen. Thanks for the giveaway!

921
Kelly August 24, 2012 at 11:43 am

The first thing I clean is my kitchen! With 2 kids, it’s always a cluttered, messy dumping ground that I’d rather not have others see!

922
Hayley August 24, 2012 at 11:43 am

Let’s see – the FIRST thing I clean is the bathroom. Everything else can be tidied up as guests arrive ;-)

923
Terri d August 24, 2012 at 11:43 am

Family room is the first thing I do~ bring out that heavy vacuum, cord etc… and push away. How nice it would be to have the Neato so I could then be making sure the bathroom was straightened up!

924
Emily Allphin August 24, 2012 at 11:43 am

Vacumming is always at the top of my list when company is coming over! How wonderful would it be to wake up to clean carpets!?

925
Mandy Haber August 24, 2012 at 11:44 am

I would LOVE to win this! I feel like I vacuum all the time!

926
Erin J August 24, 2012 at 11:44 am

The bathrooms.

927
Debbie Hallenbeck August 24, 2012 at 11:44 am

The first thing I do is straighten the bathroom, then vacuum. I had one of the other robot vacuums and I loved it. It did have battery problems. Would love to try this one!

928
Melissa August 24, 2012 at 11:45 am

We clean the living room first because it is what you see when you first come in the house. I would LOVE to win this. We have two dogs that trash the floors..haha

929
Josh Davis August 24, 2012 at 11:45 am

First thing we do it clean the floor. With four animals (two cats & two dogs), it is a necessity.

930
H~M August 24, 2012 at 11:45 am

I usually clean the bathroom first, but a close second is vacuuming the floors!

931
Janie August 24, 2012 at 11:46 am

When company’s coming, I vacuum first, it makes everything look neater and then I get to the bathrooms! With a dog and 4 kids, I would love love love to have a neato vacuum!

932
Alesia August 24, 2012 at 11:46 am

I always dust and vacuum the floors on our main level since that’s where we will be hanging out and I don’t want there to be dog hair from our two fur babies! :)

933
Ginger D August 24, 2012 at 11:46 am

I always clean the guest bathroom first

934
Lisa August 24, 2012 at 11:46 am

I always clean the bathroom first! And then wipe the dog nose prints and toddler hand prints off the front door.

935
Ashley h August 24, 2012 at 11:47 am

I have to say I tackle my kitchen first! My first floor is a completely open floor plan so the kitchen is first! Especially the espresso hardwood floors…which I love but they show dirt and even footprints. Thanks for the giveaway Neato and Amanda!

936
Ashlee August 24, 2012 at 11:48 am

I always hit the kitchen first because it’s the first thing anyone will see. This vacuum looks/sounds awesome!

937
Tricia Erk August 24, 2012 at 11:48 am

I always start cleaning the living room since that’s where we would be spending most of the time!

938
Susan M August 24, 2012 at 11:48 am

OHHH – I need this!!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful product!

939
Kristen August 24, 2012 at 11:48 am

The kitchen! Always have to do the dishes!

940
Shelley August 24, 2012 at 11:49 am

The living room first, then the tile entryway. Vacuuming is my least favorite chore!

941
Cleo Starkey August 24, 2012 at 11:49 am

The entry way – that’s where everyone drops everything when they get home!!

942
Lalia August 24, 2012 at 11:49 am

I’m needing to vacuum before my party tonight. This would be totally awesome!

943
Valerie at The Year of Living Healthfully August 24, 2012 at 11:50 am

I always clean the bathrooms first.

944
Lalia August 24, 2012 at 11:51 am

I’m needing to vacuum before my party tonight. This would be totally awesome! (if this is a duplicate it’s because I received an error the first time.)

945
Nisha August 24, 2012 at 11:51 am

I’m fairly neat, so usually its the living room. Over the course of a few days there are magazines, newspapers, doggie toys and books scattered through out our living room that I would rather hide than have someone witness the mess.

946
Kerry Murphy August 24, 2012 at 11:52 am

Kitchen first! It’s so small, but open and right next to the family room seating area. You can’t miss a mess when it’s there and when it’s there it’s huge because of the size of the kitchen! Thanks for the opportunity. I’m impressed with how well it actually suctioned up stuff!

947
Annie August 24, 2012 at 11:52 am

Wow, what a phenomenal invention! Between one shedding dog and three little boys, I’d put this little vacuum to good use for sure!

948
Gayle Burgoyne August 24, 2012 at 11:53 am

I start with the bedroom they will be staying in and work my way around the house. The Neato is so cool! I have a walking disability and am constantly tripping over the cord or getting the cord tangled up in the wheels to my wheel chair. This would be perfect for me. :-)

949
sue August 24, 2012 at 11:54 am

The bathroom is first. Then pick up clutter, dust and vacuum.

950
Dalia August 24, 2012 at 11:55 am

When I know folks are coming over my first thing to clean are the floors, vacuum and sweep. My dog sheds like crazy, poor baby is currently under the weather:-(

951
Earl August 24, 2012 at 11:55 am

To clean up my man cave. thats where my guest love to be when they visit

952
Kristin August 24, 2012 at 11:55 am

I clean up the clutter first, then it’s on to the bathroom.

953
Dalia August 24, 2012 at 11:55 am

When I know folks are coming over, the first thing to clean are the floors, vacuum and sweep. My dog sheds like crazy, poor baby is currently under the weather:-(

954
ElleBee August 24, 2012 at 11:56 am

Bathroom, no question. With three boys and a husband, it’s ALWAYS in need of a cleaning! :)

955
Adri August 24, 2012 at 11:56 am

We always have to clean our kitchen first because it’s such a hot mess! Then we flow into the bathrooms, and lastly the bedrooms/living room. It’s a frenzy when last minute guests announce they are on the way! Our dogs put doggie fur all over the carpeted floors and its impossible to keep up with! The Neato could save the day!

956
Cathy August 24, 2012 at 11:58 am

I clean the living room first, since that’s where we’ll usually be!

957
Emily M. August 24, 2012 at 11:58 am

It is usually the kitchen and living rooms

958
Barbara Frazier August 24, 2012 at 11:58 am

I always clean the guest bathroom first and then vac the living room. This would be a HUGE timesaver … and with 2 dogs of my own … well, I’m familiar with hair :)

959
Donna E. August 24, 2012 at 11:58 am

omg! this is so awesome!!! vacuuming is the last part of my house cleaning, this would be so perfect esp its so dusty all the time in our house. thanks for the chance!

960
Katherine Greenough August 24, 2012 at 11:59 am

Man O MAN!!!!! I CAN’T wait to try this thing out!!! Your floors looked AMAZING!!! Love that it leaves the lines so you can get the satisfaction of knowing that the floor is cleaned!!! Besides all the dirt it collects in the holder! That was amazing!!! With a Basset Hound and a 1 year old I could SURE use THIS!!! I hope I’m picked!!!! Thanks so much for sharing this awesome product with us!!

961
Jade August 24, 2012 at 11:59 am

Well, the flat surfaces seem to collect the most clutter so I clean them up first LOL

962
sue August 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm

The bathroom is first. Then pick up the clutter, dust and vacuum.

963
Eileen K. August 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Definitely it’s the main bathroom. My kiddos leave such a mess in there – wanna keep that secret hidden!

964
Melinda August 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm

I always clean the kitchen first. While I’m doing that, I try to talk someone else into vacuuming, which I HATE to do! Would love to win the Neato!

965
ryane August 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Door entry and the front room Oy Is a must. Love the way it picks up the hair in that photo. Thanks Kevin and Amanda thats amazing. Take Care

966
Amy August 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm

I NEED THIS! I suffer from allergies and have a small pooch, so I’m constantly vacuuming.

967
Amy Tong August 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm

What a powerful vacuum cleaner! Would love to give this a try. The first thing I clean when company is coming over is the kitchen. Cos I probably will cook up a storm for them and will need a major clean up afterwards. :)

amy [at] utry [dot] it

968
Dee August 24, 2012 at 12:01 pm

The first thing I clean is the KITCHEN! I feel SO much better when my kitchen is clean! And with 2 dogs, a teenager & a husband…I REALLY need a robot!!

969
shirley August 24, 2012 at 12:01 pm

The living room, there’s always newspapers and magazines everywhere.

970
Greta B. August 24, 2012 at 12:02 pm

Living room first! Have to pick up all the baby and toddler toys. This vacuum would help me so much! Thanks for the giveaway.

971
Robin August 24, 2012 at 12:02 pm

The bathroom, of course! All guests understand clutter, but nobody wants to use a dirty bathroom, especially when it’s not their germs. Wouldn’t it be great to have a Neato vacuum so the carpets could get cleaned while you’re cleaning the bathroom?

972
Cara August 24, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I always start in the living room since it’s the first room you see when you walk in the house.

973
Jami August 24, 2012 at 12:03 pm

The first thing I clean when company is coming over is the bathroom. There is nothing that bothers me more than a disgusting bathroom. After that, it’s the living room because that’s the first room they see.

974
Jane Ellen August 24, 2012 at 12:04 pm

OOOOHHH to be able to just push a button! Sign me up now! :)

975
Lindy Vorrie August 24, 2012 at 12:05 pm

The first thing we clean is definitely our floors! We have a black lab/golden retriever mix who sheds like crazy year-round so we have little black tumbleweeds every where in our house!

976
Larissa S August 24, 2012 at 12:05 pm

The first thing that I clean are my two area rugs and floors…Nothing says clean like clean carpets and floors…

977
Cindy August 24, 2012 at 12:06 pm

This thing looks so cool!! The first place I clean is the bathroom….just in case, then I focus on the rooms I’m sure they’ll see.

978
Sunshine Saver August 24, 2012 at 12:06 pm

The first thing I clean when company is coming over is the tile floor. It’s the first thing they see when they walk in the door and the first impression is everything!

979
Stephanie August 24, 2012 at 12:06 pm

The kitchen…it is open to the rest of our house and usually has a nice collection of dirty dishes, mail, and other assorted detritus.

980
Jane Ellen August 24, 2012 at 12:08 pm

OOOOHHH to be able to just push a button! Sign me up now! :) The first thing I clean is my kitchen counters, that’s where everything that comes in the house lands!

981
Lissa August 24, 2012 at 12:08 pm

This looks amazing! The first thing I clean is the kitchen. Get rid of any dirty dishes and old food crumbs and get the house smelling fresher right away!

982
Jane August 24, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Dust, dirt, dog hair! All over…all the time. Can’t wait to win. Thanks for offer!

983
Ali August 24, 2012 at 12:09 pm

This vacuum looks great. I always straighten the living room and then put out a fresh hand towel in the bathroom.

984
Nancy Griffin August 24, 2012 at 12:10 pm

The kitchen table seems to be the catch all of things brought into the house. So that is my first thing to clean.
Thanks for a chance to win this. I can see Grady the cat running for his life now;)
Nancy

985
Kim W. August 24, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Oh gosh – with baby #2 arriving in the next month, this would be SO helpful. My floors are severely neglected already!!! Thanks for the opportunity!

986
Andrea Thomas August 24, 2012 at 12:12 pm

I have a large and extremely hairy dog who sheds like crazy, so the first thing we do it vacuum! This robotic vacuum would make life so much easier!

987
Mandy August 24, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Close tie between the bathroom and the kitchen!

988
Petra H August 24, 2012 at 12:13 pm

First thing I do is bring the big pile of mail upstairs! Then it’s dusting. Wow, this vacuum looks amazing! Fingers crossed.

989
Joani McD August 24, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Yes bathrooms are 1st, then dust then vacuum! With this I may change to dusting then bathrooms while this takes care of the vacuuming!! Thanks again Amanda for the give-a-way :)

990
Pam August 24, 2012 at 12:14 pm

The first thing I do is get the dishes out of the sink and vacuum and sweep the floors. I now have to vacuum the sofa and chair because we have a boxer and dachshund living on the furniture. If I don’t vacuum it I put a throw over it to avoid the shedding!

991
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 12:15 pm

I always clean the bathrooms first (at least the guest bathroom!). :-)

992
Deanna August 24, 2012 at 12:15 pm

The bathrooms!! I would love to win this giveaway! We recently moved to a bigger house and have been thinking about getting this type of vacuum :) Thanks!!

993
Meribeth August 24, 2012 at 12:15 pm

The floors!

994
Jamie Walker August 24, 2012 at 12:16 pm

My family room. It’s the room you first walk in to. :)

995
tara August 24, 2012 at 12:16 pm

I clean the wood floors 2x per day. This vaccum would vastly improve my life! No joke :)

996
Lori August 24, 2012 at 12:17 pm

I always head to the bathrooms first.

997
Shainah Afrah August 24, 2012 at 12:17 pm

I always start with the kitchen first, there’s always stuff that needs to be put away.

998
Traci Baker August 24, 2012 at 12:17 pm

I had no idea there were other kinds of robotic sweepers….this is cool!!! This is PERFECT because the first thing I do is sweep before company….I hate the dust factor on our wood floors!

999
amy s (OH) August 24, 2012 at 12:17 pm

It’s always the living room because that seems to be the place everyone migrates to.

1000
Jennifer August 24, 2012 at 12:19 pm

I clean the guest bathroom!

1001
Stacy August 24, 2012 at 12:19 pm

First the living room, then the kitchen. I always vacuum first.

1002
Karen U. August 24, 2012 at 12:19 pm

My whole main floor since company sees it all with the open floor plan – so this would be fantastic to help while I tidy up the other stuff! Thanks for the giveaway! It sounds awesome!

1003
Taylor D. August 24, 2012 at 12:19 pm

I always sweep or vacuum the tile floors in the kitchen….it seems to be a magnet for our furry friend!

1004
Sonia Mazur August 24, 2012 at 12:20 pm

The first thing that we clean is the kitchen. That way if we don’t get to the rest of the house we will be confined in the place where there is food, water and a bathroom! Very cool vacuum – Thanks for the opportunity.

1005
Debbie August 24, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Shut the kids’ bedroom door if they didn’t make it as presentable as I might like!

1006
Connie Lynn August 24, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Oh, my! It would have to be my bathrooms!

1007
Annie August 24, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Wow, what a phenomenal invention! Between one shedding dog and three little boys, I’d put this little vacuum to good use for sure! Oh, and I typically clean the bathrooms first. (I always heard to do the thing you enjoy the least first.)

1008
Christina August 24, 2012 at 12:22 pm

For some reason, I don’t mind cleaning the bathroom at all. Seeing all the shiny white porcelain, it makes me very happy! The floors are another thing entirely… I could use a new vacuum!

1009
Christy August 24, 2012 at 12:23 pm

Bathrooms, clutter, vacuum. This would make my life SO MUCH easier!!!

1010
TracyLea August 24, 2012 at 12:24 pm

The bathroom. With a newly potty trained two year old, it seems my once cleaned bathroom is gone gone gone. Every time I look in there I just stare in amazement and then get to cleaning.

1011
Katie L. August 24, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Kitchen. You have to walk through it to our living room and everyone seems to congregate there the most.

1012
Amanda W. August 24, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Kitchen and the bathrooms. My husband takes care of all the vacuuming and mopping because I hate doing it. Winning this vacuum will certainly make each of us happier to clean!

1013
Wendy August 24, 2012 at 12:26 pm

The bathroom!!

1014
April August 24, 2012 at 12:27 pm

I always clean my kitchen first. Everyone enters through my kitchen so that is the first thing that must get cleaned.

1015
Heather August 24, 2012 at 12:29 pm

The kitchen because that’s the first place everyone goes!!

1016
Max August 24, 2012 at 12:29 pm

I clean the rug un the living room. It always a shock to find a colored rug under a layer of white dog fur.

1017
Eileen August 24, 2012 at 12:29 pm

I actually clean the kitchen first, specifically the island. It tends to get piles of junk deposited on it.

First thing I run to clean for company is the bathroom. The white tile etc shows dust and grime far too easily from our two dogs running around.

1020
Theresa August 24, 2012 at 12:31 pm

I always check the bathroom first.

Hollie August 24, 2012 at 12:35 pm

I always vacuum the family room when company is coming over.

Jenny August 24, 2012 at 12:36 pm

This vaccum reminds me of my late grandma. She was obsessed with how her rugs looked and would have loved one of these. Everyone who visited her place was afraid of walking in her living room because her vaccum lines would be messed up. It became a running joke in the family.

When company comes to our place I always tackle the kids stuff first, do a quick wipe down of the bathroom and then touch up the floors. We have a cat and dog that both shed LOTS, so before I let anyone into the house I need to de-fur my floors. The Neato would be a welcome addition to our family!

I would love a chance to win this vacuum! It would be great to have the vacuuming done while I was working on the dishes and bathrooms.

1030
YvonneC August 24, 2012 at 12:38 pm

What an awesome machine! I would love to have my floors vacuumed while I was at work! When we have company coming I clean the bathrooms first. They are usually pretty clean, but I want everything in there sparkling for company.

Thanks for the chance at winning! We have two dogs also and this would be amazing for all the pet hair!

1031
Jenny Z. August 24, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Oh my god, I need that vacuum for my new apartment!

1032
Erin August 24, 2012 at 12:40 pm

I always wipe down everything (countertops, furniture) starting with the bathroom, living room, kitchen (depending how much time I have!)

1033
Amanda August 24, 2012 at 12:40 pm

I clean the kitchen first! It is the room you see when you walk in. It is usually the messiest :)

1034
Cheryl August 24, 2012 at 12:41 pm

The living room – first step is to get the toys up!

1035
ashleyf August 24, 2012 at 12:41 pm

1036
KakeMom August 24, 2012 at 12:41 pm

1037
Jocelyn Cooley August 24, 2012 at 12:41 pm

If I could only do one thing, it is totally vacuum! We have 4 pets so it’s an on going battle in this home! I hope you pick me, I sure could use it!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

1038
Amanda August 24, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Kitchen first…the bathroom a close second!

1039
Melanie Hahn August 24, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I just moved into a new house and this would ease the pain of keeping it looking brad new forever! I need one of these in my life…

1040
Jen L August 24, 2012 at 12:43 pm

The bathroom

1041
Ashley August 24, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I definitely dust, all the dog hair, and VACUUM!

1042
Jackie August 24, 2012 at 12:43 pm

When company comes over I clean the bathroom first since this is the most brightly lit room in my apartment. Thanks for the giveaway. I love your site Amanda.

1043
Alisha August 24, 2012 at 12:43 pm

The bathroom!

1044

The entry way!

1045
Hannah Kramer August 24, 2012 at 12:45 pm

The first thing I clean when company comes over is the bathroom! No one wants to go in a gross bathroom. Then I clean my kitchen!

1046
Sonjasunshine August 24, 2012 at 12:45 pm

If I hear company is coming, the first thing I do is grab the vacuum!

1047
Sara August 24, 2012 at 12:47 pm

The living room because I have a 5 month old and toys are always everywhere!

1048
Crisc August 24, 2012 at 12:48 pm

The floors! I have a Labrador in the house who sheds! He is part of the family but the hair must be vacuumed before company comes! The Neato would be wonderful!

1049
Michelle August 24, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I always clean the bathroom first! I also dislike vaccuuming so I designated it my husbands chore. Now if we win this snazzy vaccuum, I can make dusting as his new chore. I love this idea!!

1050
susan barrera August 24, 2012 at 12:50 pm

My bathrooms are always SUCH a wreck! With 2 little boys in the house, sometimes they even forget to flush…boys are gross!

1051
Karen K August 24, 2012 at 12:50 pm

The first thing I clean is the bathroom then I vacuum! Thank you for the giveaway.

1052
cathy August 24, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I have 4 kids, 2 kids & no time. This would be great for our house!

I meant to write that I clean the kitchen first.

1055
Tamara J. August 24, 2012 at 12:51 pm

The first thing I clean is the toilets! If all else fails and the house is a mess, give the guest a clean place to do their “business”! :) Hope I win the vacuum, my two big black dogs make it a daily chore for me! Thank you for the giveaway!

1056
Karen U. August 24, 2012 at 12:52 pm

My entire main floor since it’s an open floor plan and my guests can see the whole thing – so this would be awesome to have running while I tidy up the other stuff! Thanks for the giveaway!!

1057
michellelove August 24, 2012 at 12:52 pm

It depends on how much time I have…but if it’s last minute company, I always vacuum the main living area first. Just makes things look cleaner overall. If I won this, maybe I could clean something else, too. ;)

1058
Amy H August 24, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Oh my gosh, this would be fantastic! I always clean the bathrooms/faucets first, but vacuuming makes such a large impact this would be perfect for multitasking that!

1059
Teresa R August 24, 2012 at 12:53 pm

With 6 kids and 2 dogs, I’m always vacuuming! Family room first, that’s where we all hang out! I would love this shortcut =)

1060
Sarah August 24, 2012 at 12:54 pm

I try to clean my entire 1st floor if company is coming over, that includes kitchen, living room, foyer and bathroom. We have an English Mastiff, and they shed a lot, so this would be awesome. I am always running the vacuum or swiffer and brushing the dog – LOL!

1061
svetlana August 24, 2012 at 12:55 pm

When company is coming over the first thing i clean is actually my car in case i have to take them out for dinner :)

1062
Christine August 24, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Wow, I would love to win one of these! What an awesome giveaway!

Probably the first thing I clean is the bathroom, but really I have to clean everything when company is coming. How cool to have the Neato vacuuming for you. Just have to make sure my dogs don’t try to hunt it down, they aren’t fond of vacuum cleaners:)

1063
Breanna August 24, 2012 at 12:59 pm

I usually try to get the living room and at least 1 of the bathrooms cleaned before company comes over…if i have time then i work on the kitchen. Awesome giveaway!

1064
Krista August 24, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I usually clean the kit hen first with bathrooms close bebind that!

1065
LauraEmm August 24, 2012 at 1:00 pm

I clean the kitchen and guest bathroom first. The kitchen is attached to the living room, so I know the guests will see it!

1066
Janelle August 24, 2012 at 1:01 pm

Hi Amanda! I always rush to clean toilets when I know company is coming over. Right after toilets, I will clean the floors. We have two dogs who love to run and play (and leave their hair all over my floors!). We moved to a new house and we are COMPLETELY WITHOUT carpet because of very bad allergies, and I have been looking into the Neato since January. I heard it works so much better than the Roomba for picking up dog hair, and it also doesn’t get stuck as easily as the Roomba does. Just wish they didn’t cost so much so that I could buy one sooner! Buy hey, maybe this will be my lucky day! :)

1067
Kristi G August 24, 2012 at 1:02 pm

I first clean my kitchen….seems like my floors are last. It would be nice to do both at the same time!

1068
Cissy August 24, 2012 at 1:02 pm

I usually clean the kitchen first because it is usually the messiest. I have two boys that are constantly hungry and both struggle with that whole “clean up after yourself” thing. After that it would be the guest bathroom that I have considered banning my boys from using. :)

1069
Dara E. August 24, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I clean the kitchen and guest bathroom first! Hopefully dust and hope no one notices the rest!

1070
Sharon Gilmer August 24, 2012 at 1:03 pm

I clean the toilets first in my house when guests are coming. Nothing worse than a dirty toilet.

1071
Chelle Chapman August 24, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I clean the downstairs bathroom first, then the kitchen!! Really, the only TWO places gusts are in my house unless they are staying. The guest room is always clean so I don’t have to worry bout it! Thanks to you & Neato for this giveaway!! Wish me luck!

1072
Julie @ Table for Two August 24, 2012 at 1:04 pm

The first thing I clean is my KITCHEN! then the bathrooms! :)

1073
Anna Dawn August 24, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I always sweep all the hardwood floors before company comes over, they always look worse than they are because they’re a dark cherry wood color. Then I vacuum the carpets. Wish I had a vacuum that could do both!! ;-)

1074
Stacey B August 24, 2012 at 1:06 pm

The kitchen

1075
Krissy August 24, 2012 at 1:08 pm

The living room! My daughters toys are usually everywhere.

1076
Renea Burg August 24, 2012 at 1:10 pm

It’s a toss up between the kitchen & bathroom!! I need to read the comments but I bet that’s what everyone is saying. *wink* Thanks! Renea.

1077
Janeil August 24, 2012 at 1:11 pm

First the bathrooms, but a close second are the floors!

1078
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 1:12 pm

The bathrooms for sure!!! I hate having dirty bathrooms when guests are due.

1079
Megan August 24, 2012 at 1:12 pm

With three dogs I would definitely clean the hardwood floors where they spend the most time! No matter how much I vacuum or swifter, there is stil fur everywhere!!

1080
Kate Jones August 24, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Usually, before people are coming over, I have to de-clutter and clean the whole apartment! But first comes the kitchen! There are usually dishes to do, and crumbs on the floor that need sweeping. This vacuum seems like it would really help!!! :)

1081
Brenda August 24, 2012 at 1:13 pm

I clean the family room first! This little guy looks like a dream come true. Does he have a sister that can mop? I hate to clean floors! Thanks for a chance to win!
Brenda

1082
Martha August 24, 2012 at 1:14 pm

I usually clean the kitchen or the bathroom first. This vacuum looks awesome – I’d probably turn it on and still watch it work. How cool!

1083
maria August 24, 2012 at 1:16 pm

so awesome! we have wanted one of these forever! we just had my family over last night and the firs thing we do is vacuum and empty the trash while the other cleans the bathroom! thanks so much!

1084
Tammy August 24, 2012 at 1:16 pm

5 dogs, 3 kids, 1 husband, the answer …. I just start vacuuming right out of the closet it’s kept in! Thanks for the opportunity to win this jewel.

1085
Sarah W August 24, 2012 at 1:16 pm

Dog hair everywhere so its always vacuum and dust then hit the bathroom! This is so Jetsons style I need one!

1086
Jenn August 24, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I always clean the bathrooms! And of course vacuuming is top on the list too

1087
Jessica August 24, 2012 at 1:17 pm

The bathrooms!!! With two young boys in my house the bathrooms needs cleaned almost daily. Is it just my boys or do ALL boys have bad aim? :)

1088
Kristin August 24, 2012 at 1:19 pm

I always clean our dining room table when company comes, it seems like it collects the most clutter!

1089
Rebecca August 24, 2012 at 1:22 pm

I always clean the kitchen first and then the floors! What a cool machine!

1090
Haley Grossman August 24, 2012 at 1:22 pm

The first thing I clean is the bathroom…with 3 boys in the house it’s a must!

1091
Linda Hall August 24, 2012 at 1:22 pm

First thing I clean is the living room, no wait, the bathroon, no… the kitchen – actually, I sort of whirl around all the rooms like the Tasmanian Devil ’til it gets done (or until time runs out and everything that can be gets shoved in a room with a door that no one enters!) :)

1092
Jennifer Petersen August 24, 2012 at 1:22 pm

SWEET! We have a lab, two kids, and one on the way, we are vacuuming at least every other day! I’d love to have this and use that vacuuming time doing other things! Thanks!

1093
Kim August 24, 2012 at 1:23 pm

The bathrooms for sure!

1094
Angela K. August 24, 2012 at 1:23 pm

I always clean the kitchen before guests come over – followed by vacuuming the floors since having two black labs means lot of dog hair! If I don’t vacuum then any other work I do seems like a waste!

1095
Pam August 24, 2012 at 1:24 pm

The first thing I clean is always the kitchen island! It’s a haven for clutter ;)

1096
Leeena August 24, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Wow! This must be fate! I was just vacuuming yesterday and was so annoyed at my own vacuum!! It’s one of those with a big tube, and so hard to manuever. Plus i have to lift the heavy thing from room to room and I have dropped it on my foot more than once! This would be so good when I have guests over. Especially under the dining table and near the bathroom sink!! I have carpet in those areas :( and my vacuum does not do a good job of picking up all those hairs :(.

1097
Alyssa August 24, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Clean the kitchen and tidy up. My sister has one of these and I’m jealous!

1098
Holly August 24, 2012 at 1:25 pm

The first thing I clean is the entryway/steps. The dog hair seems to collect there and it’s also the first place guests enter and notice when they stop by.

1099
Dili August 24, 2012 at 1:26 pm

Definitely have to vacuum the living room. Put away idle stuff laying around, do some dusting if necessary and then run the vacuum. Wish I could afford this little baby… would be so awesome.

1100
Judy August 24, 2012 at 1:28 pm

If it picks up dog hair…consider me sold! Uh, not sold…won!

1101
Heather Miskulin August 24, 2012 at 1:29 pm

THE Bathroom!!! mine always looks like a tornado went through it!!!

1102
julie August 24, 2012 at 1:29 pm

The first thing is the bathrooms then the kitchen!

1103
Janet August 24, 2012 at 1:30 pm

If it’s spend-the-night company I always put fresh linens on the bed. Nothing like clean sheets!

1104
Jane August 24, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I clean as much as I can, as frantically as I can, when company’s coming over! It’s usually
