It’s almost embarrassing, but I am in love with my vacuum.
It’s not a Dyson. (I can hear the gasps.) No really. It’s a Eureka. It cost me $59 at my local vacuum store (who I love supporting because he only has good stuff and gives me solid recommendations every time I need something) and it’s possibly the most wonderful thing ever to enter the apartment of a woman who was stupid enough to buy a black fabric couch.
Why do I love it so?
It’s corded, so there is none of that “the battery life sucks”, like I read in every online comment of every cordless vac I researched.
It sucks like you would not believe and has a rotating brush for fabric/carpet/upholstery.
Mostly, it WORKS. I live with two mini-rex rabbits (well, actually one mini-rex and one rex, but that’s another blog post). Their fur is finer than baby hair and clings tougher than any pet hair you will ever encounter. I had a cushion that I hadn’t cleaned since before the move. COVERED in an embarrassing amount of clumpy super-fine fur. This thing cleaned it like new in less than a minute. LIKE NEW. And then I popped the plastic dust cover off (that clear thing in the pic above), and the super-fine fur was neatly gathered in the filter. Which is washable, btw.
I wish I had a before and after pic to show you, but I was so excited to test this thing, I completely forgot. I did the couch, too.
Yeah, it’s heavy. I can deal with that. The thing WORKS.
