Enter to Win a Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi-Surface Pro Carpet and Hard Floor Deep Cleaner

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |

With the holidays here, many of you are in the kitchen cooking and baking up a storm. Add to that the stress of holiday gatherings and Christmas parties, and you have a recipe for disaster. Hoover is here to help you reduce your cleaning stress this holiday season, and they’re offering Babble Family Kitchen readers a chance to win a new carpet and hard floor cleaner, the Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi-Surface Pro, which is great for tackling those kitchen messes before the party and drink spills post-party as well.

Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi-Surface Pro Carpet & Hard Floor Deep Cleaner takes care of all your holiday cleaning needs, from glitter and gravy spills to cranberry sauce and eggnog. It’s easy to tackle holiday stains, whether they’re on carpet, hard floors or upholstery. With SpinScrub technology to loosen dirt and grime and a fast dry time, your house will be party ready in no time. Click through to enter to win!

We recently cleaned our floors after a huge baking undertaking, and the MaxExtract77 easily cleaned flour and powdered sugar off our textured kitchen floor. Plus, we used the attachment and gave our microfiber couch a good scrub, making it look like new again and doing away with sticky kid prints and drool marks from my husband falling asleep on it late at night. Along with the addition of our Christmas tree, we’re definitely in the holiday spirit and ready to invite people over to share in it with us.

UPDATED: The contest period is over. The winner is Danielle, who said, “The carpet in my dining room, sitting room, and living room are in extreme need of a deep cleaning due the high volume of traffic in these areas.” Congratulations, Danielle!

  39. heather says:

    All of it. We have stone flooring throughout, and it’s always dusty.



  40. Rachel says:

    Hands down, our circa 1950s linoleum floor in a chaos of dirt-brown, dirt-orange and dirt-yellow speckles. Fortunately, (or unfortunately), ground in cheerios, pine needle bits, and crunches of catfood all disappear into the pattern. I wonder what the color originally was…

  41. bridget {bake at 350} says:

    Our hardwood floors are dark and it seems as soon as I clean them, they are covered in footprints again!

    The carpet directly in front of my couch.

  49. Jackie says:

    Def our den where we all hang out!

  50. Katherine says:

    Definitely my couch. Between the drips and splotches, I don’t know if it’s salvageable, but I’d love to try!

  51. Christine Holliday says:

    My living room definitely. I have painted hardwood floors in there and the dirt not only tracks in as it does on hardwood floors, but it sticks. I would have to say my daughter room is the second worst. During the summer pieces or paper stuck to her floor and no matter how hard I try I can not get them off. Over all my whole house is bad considering it is, both first and second floor including stairs, painted hard wood. I promise you, this was not my idea.
