Do you have a favourite job around the house?

No of course you don’t.

Because housework is boring, and sensible people know that the very best approach is to make it as quick and easy as possible, so you can go and do fun things that are not housework.

Today, I’ve got a rather special competition so you too can shave time off your weekly cleaning routine. But I also thought this would be the perfect opportunity to invite you to share with me YOUR favourite ways to save time when cleaning.

For example, did you know that if you put a dry towel in with your wet washing for 20 minutes, you cut the overall drying time?

That’s basically my one and only laundry tip. Pitiful, I know. This is why cleaning takes me so long.

Hurrah, then, for the MultiReach Ion vacuum cleaner from Bissell – which is cordless, light and powerful, making vacuuming quicker and easier.


The MultiReach is also super-flexible with a two-way folding handle (perfect for getting under the sofa) and a removable hand vacuum that’s great for cleaning vertical surfaces like curtains, or stairs.

Other features include:

  • An extension wand (so short people can reach up high)
  • Side brushes to clean along edges and skirting boards
  • A battery charge indicator
  • Quick charge docking station
  • 180 degree swivel steering

Win a Bissell MultiReach Ion, worth £189
