The clean furniture weight-loss plan (Stanley Steemer giveaway)

Perfect for yoga, not for Cheetos and Kool-Aid.

Did you know that having clean furniture and carpets can help you and your family lose weight? 

"Get back in the kitchen with that ice cream! We just had the carpet cleaned!"

"Cheetos? Not on the sofa!"

Boom! Eating averted.

Having clean and fluffed-up carpet is also great for working out at home. Hitting the floor for crunches is much more enjoyable when the carpet doesn't smell like dog.

Out, damned spots!
What I'm getting at is I have a $100 gift certificate for Stanley Steemer to give away to one of you lucky readers. We just had them come out last weekend to blast through the gunk on the living room furniture and clean the living room, dining room and den carpets, and everything looks fluffy and new again.

We've been using Stanley Steemer for awhile and I trust them to do a great job and be completely professional. So when I was asked to do a giveaway, I immediately said yes.

They're always on time, always quick and professional and they blissfully don't try and up-sell you on things you don't want. 

You can find out more about Stanley Steemer on their Facebook page and on Twitter, too.

So would you like to spiff up your home for the holidays? (No one will be allowed to eat mincemeat pie on your love seat EVER after you have them cleaned.) 

Leave a comment below on how you think clean furniture and carpets will help your weight loss plans. I'll choose one winner on MONDAY, DECEMBER 3 at noon ET. (This is a quick giveaway so you can get Stanley Steemer out before your holiday parties.) And I'm not going to even bother with bonus entrees because I know you love us enough to follow us on Facebook and Twitter all on your own.
