All of us have at least one little mess maker at home … right?  Or three? Or more?

Whether you have kids or pets or a partner, it seems the mess bomb goes off anytime any of them are around! Add a few more friends, family or parties and it can get a little overwhelming. But right now, as part of the Oates Cleaning Review, we have MoM Members everywhere making light work of the clean up with Oates mops, brushes, sponges and washers. And Oates is making it so easy,  they’re all laughing at the mess.

That’s right, when you’re faced with a mess you have two options: Lose your mind (and your ***t) and then feel bad all day OR pull out your Oates cleaning product of choice, do a quick whip around then pat yourself on the back for making light work of the mess.

As part of our Oates Cleaning Review, we asked MoM Members to trial the Oates Complete Window WasherOates Pet Hair BrushOates Grout BrushOates General Scrub BrushOates Anti-Bacterial Sponge Scourer (3 pack)Oates Microfibre Cleaning Kit (4 pack) and the Oates Triple Action Flat Mop.

Their reviews are rolling in and members are loving the fact that Oates products literally carve through the mess and make light work of any job.

We’re in love and laughing at the fact that our members have all their little mess makers on the job!

This gorgeous photo and the post says it all … “I knew there was a reason the house was so quiet!  This is what happens when you blink in my home”

Gretchen had her little man Tyler on duty with the Oates Pet Hair Brush and his ‘job’ was to clean the pet hair from all around the house. Seems he whipped through his job so quickly he decided to start on the dog!

Nicole from @ThreeLittleFaures told us her favourite product was the Oates Pet Hair Brush too. “The Pet Hair Brush is my new favourite thing in the world and my mum has even bought one to use with their cat who gets hair over the couch … she swears by it!”

She’s also fallen in love with the Oates Microfibre Cleaning Kit – 4 microfibre cloths that can handle any mess. Looks like she’s going to need them for this mess …  

If you want a laugh, head to Instagram and search #momreviewauoates or #LaughAtTheMess … there are loads and loads of fun posts. You’ll be relieved to see that Mums everywhere have little mess makers and big messes at home just like you.

Here’s a few more Insta posts we just couldn’t resist including …

  • What a mess!


  • I bought my children up to help me by cleaning own room make the bed and it gives them responsibility for there own things looking after things and clean up after themselves. I don’t believe to Mody coddle kids as when they are older it comes natural to keep rooms clean and tidy.


  • Our Daughter loves to create mess so that she can help clean it up after, so cheeky!


  • If only this enthusiasm for cleaning continued into the teenage years


  • I have a few of these Oates products. Definitely great cleaning products


  • My daughter (18 months) loves to help clean. Vacuuming, wiping dusting sweeping. Anything mum does she wants to help.


  • Wow! I wish I could keep my kids this motivated all the time!


  • If only they kept being so willing to help as they got older haha


  • I used to try and get my toddlers involved in cleaning up and still have to remind them!


  • Thankfully our little ones love to copy mummy and daddy so getting them to help out isn’t much of a fuss. With Oates I know they are helping safely as you need need any chemicals


  • My girls love to help clean! I swear they make more of a mess so they can help mum vacuum mop and wash lol


  • The first home we owned did not have floor covering on the dry areas yet. My older two children thought they would bring the ducks inside as it was raining outside. The chickens had run to their own house. So while I feeding their little brother, I came out to see what the noise was about. The ducks and boys had brought clay inside plus some of the ducks had gone to the toilet on the concrete floor. So I shooed the ducks outside and got those two to use their own mops and cloths . Made sure number three was safe and we all got in and cleaned the floor before their went to the shower for a clean up. also let them know ducks like water, so rain will not hurt them.


  • Nice products involving kids in chores so many life lessons


  • I have lot of memories with my 3 kids messes.Drawing on the walls is the biggest ever.


  • If the kids make a monster mess, they always have to help me clean it up! It becomes habit now, i usually find them cleaning it up before they tell me ????
