Brush Hero: The Ultimate Detail Brush

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links and a sponsored item. All opinions within are my own. 

I am a neat freak. Nothing makes me happier than a clean house. One area of my life that I don’t keep clean is my car. My 2013 Subaru Impreza is dirtier than I’d ever like to admit. My husband takes pride in his truck, where I think of my car as a vehicle that transports me from Point A to Point B. I actually got sick of looking at my filthy car, so opted to review the Brush Hero: The Ultimate Detail Brush.

What is the Brush Hero: The Ultimate Detail Brush?

The Brush Hero Starter Set comes with your basic turbine, the white brush, and the black brush, plus the garden hose Quick Connect.

Brush Hero is powered by water pressure from a standard garden hose and spins with an impressive amount of torque. It’s not supposed to spin fast! Slow and steady provides maximum scrubbing power.

The white brush is to be used for tough jobs and the black brush is for sensitive surfaces. Be sure to tie back hair, and secure loose clothing before use. If there is an accidental tangle, you can flip the toggle switch, which will stop the flow and unwind.
Brush Hero also has a variety of different accessories listed on their website. Some of them include replacement brushes, extension wands, microfiber towels, and a variety of cleaning products.
What can I clean with Brush Hero?
  • Cars
  • Grills
  • Patios
  • Bikes
  • Gutters
  • Garden Tools
  • Pools
  • Pets

Whatever you do, the Brush Hero is NOT intended for use with pressure washers.

Experience

Let’s start with the bad news, first. I’m a pretty smart woman. I have a Master’s degree and you will find me saying, “Read the directions” whenever my husband and I have a project that needs to be put together…

It took me 1 hour to figure out how to get the Brush Hero correctly assembled and affixed to my garden hose. My husband had to help me and ultimately figured it out. He was so happy I was finally going to clean my car, and he got so frustrated he said, “this better be worth the aggravation!” 

Brush Hero – you need CONCISE directions labeling each piece! I couldn’t even figure it out on your website. I was going crazy. Customer service was going to hear from me. Please know, not everyone knows what female and male connectors are! My husband and I realized that we don’t need the Quick Connect Adaptor and another ridiculous piece and that we could attach the hose right into the bottom of the Brush Hero. Maybe a YouTube video would help?

Was it worth the hassle?

Yes! I don’t think the above pictures do my wheels justice. I have been disappointed using super hot water and brillo pads to try to get the dirt and grime off my wheels (hence why I have never cleaned them). My wheels have been neglected for years, so I wasn’t expecting a miracle. I also ran out of wheel cleaner (of course that would happen the day I actually want to clean them). Brush Hero absolutely exceeded my expectations.

Besides the direction debacle, Brush Hero was very easy to use. It didn’t take much time to get my wheels from filthy to shiny. Take a look at my husband having fun with the Brush Hero below.

After using the Brush Hero to clean my wheels, I mentioned to Jason that I wanted to clean my bike and the windows. My husband said he wants to clean the grill grates and some of the outdoor tools. Brush Hero is very versatile and could help us clean everything!

I would definitely consider purchasing one of the Brush Hero Gift Kits that are available for the holidays. I know my dad and father in law would really appreciate something that cuts grease, grime, and dirt in record time without much manual labor. (Brush Hero also offers free gift wrapping!)

Brush Hero retails for $34.99 USD and offers 100% satisfaction guarantee!

Look no further for a great holiday gift! Help your family and friends to bring cleanliness into their homes for 2018!

Namaste.

Terra Cotta Pendants for your Neck, Wrist, or Car

Since I became a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA, I have been purchasing diffusers for every room in my house and aspect of my life. Essential oils have helped improved my sleep and to balance my emotions throughout the day. They have also assisted in keeping my immunity strong against seasonal threats.

Diffusing essential oils are a great way to enjoy therapeutic benefits. I wanted a way to wear my oils, so Terra Cotta Pendants sent me a neck pendant, diffuser wrap bracelet, and car diffuser to try and review.

How it Works

Essential oils are naturally volatile, which means they evaporate easily, in normal temperatures. When a drop of essential oil is applied to the surface of the terra cotta piece, it is absorbed into the tiny pores of the kiln-fired clay. The essential oil slowly and naturally diffuses into the air, leaving you with a pleasant aroma throughout your day!

Directions for Use

Lay the terra cotta piece flat, and add ONE (or two, MAX) drops of essential oil onto the clay. Let it dry. When it is completely absorbed, it is ready to wear or hang in your car.

I started with the Terra Cotta Arrow Wrap Bracelet. I put two drops of Peppermint on the clay. It took a few minutes to dry completely. The waxed cotton cord was easy to untangle and lay flat. I slipped my wrist through, tightened the bead, and wrapped the bracelet around my wrist. Since I have been wearing this, I have received SO many compliments! Whenever someone asks about my Terra Cotta Arrow Wrap Bracelet, I reply, “SMELL!” and let them experience the refreshing, rejuvenating Peppermint essential oil. When I need a pick-me up during a long shift at work, I inhale slowly and take a deep, calming breath. Not only is the bracelet comfortable, but it holds the smell for a while. When the peppermint smell began to fade (about 4-5 days), I added a drop of Cedarwood, which is great for repelling insects since I have been spending a lot of time outdoors. Not only is the Terra Cotta Arrow Wrap Bracelet a statement piece, but it really helps me get therapeutic benefit from my oils throughout my day.

As most of you know, I have begun more of a holistic journey the beginning of this year after I injured my back. Besides being dairy and gluten free, I have rid my home of artificial everything… I was purchasing the vent sticks for my car, but wanted to find a more holistic approach to keeping my car smelling fresh. I tossed the vent sticks, and added two drops of Wild Orange to my Terra Cotta Joy Car Diffuser. You can get a ticket for hanging anything from your rear-view mirror in New Jersey, so I hung it from my volume dial. Now, when I enter my car, I get the fresh scent of Wild Orange. It truly is fabulous! The Terra Cotta Car Diffuser has a little magnet clasp, too!

The Terra Cotta Neck Pendant featuring an Angel is perfect for doTERRA’s Balance essential oil. doTERRA’s Balance is super grounding, and helps keep me calm, especially during stressful situations at work. The Angel couldn’t have come at a better time. Angels remind me that I have loved ones in Heaven always protecting me, and that when I am at work, it is my job to help others improve and enrich their lives. It serves as a reminder to be somebody’s Angel. I applied one drop of doTERRA’s Balance to the clay, and adjusted the waxed cotton string around my neck. I was inhaling the benefits of doTERRA’s Balance all day, creating the sense of calm that I so often need and desire! The Terra Cotta Pendant is light around my neck, and also attracted many compliments by coworkers and clients.
