The Great Clean-up Giveaway! Win house and car cleaning from NWA companies!

When we ask mamas what they’d love for Mother’s Day or a birthday — or just anytime, really — there’s always one wish that’s on their list: to have someone else do the cleaning.

Keeping your house and car (or minivan!) scrupulously clean could be a full-time job by itself and ain’t nobody who’s a mama got time for that. That’s why we when we were brainstorming great giveaway ideas for the summer we thought of free cleaning services.

This week’s epic giveaway is house cleaning from Nook & Cranny Homekeeping NWA for one mama and 4 “Interior Super Clean” gift cards from the new Splash Car Wash for a second winner. You likey?! We thought so!


Jessica O’Neill is a mama of 5 — her youngest is just 4 months old — so she KNOWS a little something about cleaning. And she knows how exhausting it can be to try and keep up with the kids and work AND the house. Jessica has a degree in elementary education, but when her family moved to Northwest Arkansas for her husband to take a new job as a teacher and football coach, she decided to stay home with the kids. That led to her dream of opening a cleaning business “with a personal touch” — with the mission of helping other moms.

“Moms are our ministry,” she said. Jessica’s sister started the original Nook & Cranny in Tulsa. They are literally sister companies.

Jessica added, “If you spend your time cleaning, you’re not doing the things you love.” She said her goal is to help you do more of the things you enjoy.

In addition to house cleaning, Nook & Cranny also offers business/office cleaning, childcare center cleaning, move-in/out cleans, new constructions cleans, realtor services and new baby cleaning prep (this is one of their most popular services — what a nice gift to give an expectant mama!).

The winner will receive 12 hours of cleaning, total, woo-hoo! Jessica will coordinate a good time with the winner. Be sure to stay up to date on all the cleaning pics, SPECIALS (yes, please!) and other fun things they do over at Nook & Cranny by following them here on Facebook.


Splash is a brand new full-service car wash in Rogers near Pinnacle Hills Promenade. You can run your car through the normal exterior wash OR you can choose interior services on top.

The winner of these 4 “Interior Super Clean” passes will be riding in clean comfort after Splash does their thing. We’ve tried the services and they are fast and awesome.

With the “Interior Super Clean” you’ll get your exterior washed, the wheels cleaned and tired shined. Then, you’ll get the interior vacuumed, and the dash, doors and glass cleaned. And they do it FAST, as in about 20 minutes fast. Plus they have a little area for the kids to play while you wait for your clean car.

Owner Paul Stagg has worked in the car wash industry for 20 years and is passionate about bringing this new brand to Arkansas in a pursuit of excellence. Additionally, he’s partnered with Northwest Arkansas Children’s shelter to help kids in tough situations. Splash is actively seeking opportunities to be great neighbors in the community of NWA. The General Manager at Splash Rogers, Ryan Barnes, said he’s happy to help with any further questions or services.

  1. I’d honestly rather be doing anything over cleaning! I feel like I’m cleaning non stop just to keep it at an “acceptable” level. With 3 kids, it never ends. Forget trying to do any deep cleaning. I will leave a comment on FB and I follow all the social media.

  2. I would rather be hanging out and doing something fun with my kids! I’m a pinterest follower 🙂

  3. I would rather take my kids out and do things to make sure they’re get the most out of their summer vacation before it’s time to go back!

  4. I would rather spend time with my son at the river fishing than clean the house and car!

  5. I would rather go to the gym or take my kids to the pool! Following on FB and Pinterest.

  6. I would rather take my kids somewhere fun instead of spending our time cleaning the house. But, the house won’t clean itself.

  7. I would rather be spending my time with our little family out and about…than cleaning the house which seems to take up far too much of my weekend time!

  8. I’d rather do anything than clean the house. 🤣 I’d much better be hanging out with the kids, having some quiet time or traveling.

  9. I’m also an elementary teacher, in grad school, and love to tutor. The one on one time with those kiddos is so rewarding. My kids are old enough to be pretty self sufficient, although I’m a bit of a doting mom. I’d rather be creating fun learning activities for my students and spending time on adventures with my kids! My schedule leaves little time for that even on summer break, so I just sacrifice sleep! 😂 Maybe I will catch up on that when I retire in 20 years. Who am I kidding, probably not! I also follow you on FB 😍

  10. I would rather spend time with my family than clean the house! Love this giveaway and hope I’m lucky enough to win because my house could use a good cleaning!

  11. I would rather do almost anything than clean. Right now, I am working on writing a book, and could use all the help I can get with keeping my house and car from falling apart! Someone save me!

  12. I’d rather be playing with the kids, reading, taking a shower, pooping alone, playing with my makeup, hiding in the corner of my kitchen secretly stuffing cookies in my face where the kids can’t see me…. honestly, anything else. 😁

  13. I would much rather take my kids somewhere fun than to spend time cleaning my house or my car!

  14. I would rather be spending time with family than clean. It would be a great blessing to win this giveaway.

  15. Working and commuting takes up most of my waking hours. Then who likes to spend an entire Sat. cleaning house or a car when there is grocery shopping to do. I would much rather spend time with my daughter and grandsons.

  16. So many things I would rather do than cleaning. Spend time with family, take the kids on an outing, read a book, spend time with friends, put my pictures in a scrapbook, I could go on and on.

  17. What would I rather do? Anything really. But actually be able to play with my kiddos without guilt that if I do, the house will be a disaster (full time working momma so have to fit in playtime + cleaning into the few hours I have at night)

  18. I would definitely rather be hanging out with my family at the pool than cleaning my house or car. We have a road trip coming up, and I hate driving a dirty car!

  19. I rather go on fun Road trips , hiking , local Lakes, than clean my Car ( especially afterwards 🙂

  20. I’d rather clean my house than my car, but only a little bit at a time. It’s the best feeling when everything is clean at once!

  22. Everyone’s comments are so nice. But I would rather go to the dentist than clean! Ha ha!

  23. Love the idea of having a break from cleaning. So many other things I could do with my time.

  24. I’d rather be spending time with family! I’d love help with cleaning, baseboards are the worst and I can never get all of the nooks and crannies in my car clean!

  25. I would rather enjoy time with family instead of cleaning house…. such as doing ANYTHING together vs. Cleaning house. 😉

  26. I would rather do anything that clean! Ha! I’m really trying to soak up the remainder of summer doing fun stuff with my kiddos before school starts back. Thanks so much for the awesome giveaways!

  28. I would rather do nearly anything else other than clean my house/car! I’d rather be swimming with my boys, planting flowers, sleeping, paying bills, working, you name it, I’d rather be doing that!!
    We are in the middle of self-building a house, and our current residence is a disaster. I don’t even know where to start at this point. My car is a mobile tool box, so it’s crazy too!!

  29. I would rather be making a mess in the kitchen, baking with my daughters!

  30. I would rather spend time outside with my family than clean! I run a summer camp and daycare. When I get home, the last thing I want to do is be indoors!

  53. As a momma of 3 young kiddos and a foster baby cleaning is so necessary but so hard to squeeze the time in! I’d rather be at the pool with the munchkins instead of cleaning!

  60. Spend time with my kids and husband oh and maybe enjoy like 30 minute “me” time since even going to the bathroom seems like a group outing with a 4 and 1 year old🤣

  80. I’d rather do anything than clean. It’s not that I meant mind cleaning it just gets overwhelming. We are always on the go and rather than nag the kids to death about picking up after themselves all of the time one thing getting left behind in the car at the end of the day quickly turns into 10-20 things at the end of the week. Same thing with the house-so much clutter it’s overwhelming and draining. Great giveaway and the winner will for sure be grateful

  87. I would rather spend time riding bikes with my family or make a nice dinner for them!

  90. I’d rather float in the kiddie pool out back…no, seriously, that’s my mom-fun.
