My Dad and The Oreck Challenge!


Dad and the Oreck VacuumHello, I hope you're well! As I write this the weather is looking a little gloomy, but the weather over the weekend was amazing. We headed down to the Isle of Wight to visit Mum and Dad.

We managed to squeeze in a spot of sailing which was just fabulous. There wasn't a huge amount of wind on Saturday but it was simply wonderful to be on the water again in the Solent and the sea was blissfully inviting…

Oreck Vacuum resultsBetween bowls of Dad's fresh fruit salad and homemade fruit cake, oh and burgers on the beach, we set ourselves (well mainly Dad) a challenge…

I'm launching the Oreck Today's Special Value this Saturday night (15 September) at midnight. QVC asked me if I'd like to try it out at home and do the 'Oreck Challenge!' I was unable to as we already have an Oreck vacuum, which we love.

So, I took the sample to the Isle of Wight for Dad to try. Well, the result as you can see, is astonishing (Mum was a little disgusted at the dust and dirt we collected!) and this was from vacuuming just one large bedroom.

We began by using Dad's old vacuum and then went over the same area with the Oreck. Dad paused for a cup of tea (he loves it really strong) then we cut open the bag to see what the Oreck collected! We were all a little lost for words! I've left the Oreck there and they're making their way through the entire house.

It's a fabulous machine; I hope you can join me for the Oreck launch on Saturday night.

Sunday came and it was time to head back home. As a thank you Dad packed me off with a homemade fruit cake baked that morning, and Mum put together a few sandwiches for the ferry!

Take care and see you soon.

    Hi Charlie.
    I must apologise my netbook has been playing up and I couldn’t get onto QVC without BIG problems, I could only access certain parts [ not sure why].I now have a new one. I’m glad you got the photo and it gave you a laugh. YES of course you can put the photo on your blog. I’m still trying for the ultimate photo [ Bella watching you and QVC], but no luck yet.
    Look foreward to seeing the outcome.
    Take care.
    Love Debby and Big Whoof from Bella
