Before & After Photo Contest ... Win an IPOD NANO for Christmas!

Well, it's finally here.....

The Before & After Photo Contest!

SO, WHAT'S THE PRIZE?


Apple 2 GB iPod Nano Silver (2nd Generation)

Hopefully one of you will either enjoy the prize for yourself or know someone who would like one for Christmas.

SO, HOW DO YOU WIN?

The contest runs from 11/15/06 to midnight 12/14/2006.

This thread will act as the offical contest thread.
To enter post a before and after photo and a breif description of a cleaning or restoration job you have completed. You can enter as many times as you wish but each post/entry must have a before and after photo and description of the work done.

That's it!

There will be one winner at the end of the contest and we will have a random drawling at the end to determin who it is. Each post has a number assigned to it in the upper right hand corner of the post and I'm going to put a bunch of number in a hat and pull one. So, the more entries you have the better the chance you have to win.

One of the purposes of this contest is to spread the word about CleaningTalk.com and to encourage more posting so we hope you will tell your friends.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing your entries!

And a personal note from my lawyer:

Hi gang. First time poster here.
I can across this site awhile ago and put it in my favs and kind of forgot to stop back. I got the email about the contest and thought hey I forgot about that site.
Anyway-here is a before/after photo of a querry tile on a patio I did a few weeks ago.

I doubt I can enter as I run a website that sells a product but thought I would jump in anyway.

They don't call me the Cleaning Superman because I'm buff.

This first of many entries goes like this:

Bissel Floor Cleaning Machine: $255.00
Cordless Scrub Brush: $40.00
Miscellaneous Cleaning Solutions: $18.00
Having a Cleaning Superhero to repair what your husband fixed:

PRICELESS!
