I love my hardwood floors, but boy are they hard to keep clean. Pepper, our short haired dog doesn’t help matters any either. If I don’t sweep or vacuum at least every other day, it can quickly become a dust-bunny apocolyptic showdown ’round here. I’m attacking while the dust-bunnies are hanging on for dear life to the closest baseboard or table leg!
Dragging out the vacuum every day or even every other day just isn’t what I WANT to do. I hate lugging it around and tripping over the cords. I end up letting it go too long and then I work twice as hard sweeping up all the dust, dirt and dog hair. I do like my dry dust mop and I will use that daily but it does leave a lot of junk behind.
I was given the opportunity to try out the new Dyson DC59 Cordless Vacuum from Best Buy.
I nearly fainted when it arrived. It’s all that a girl could ask for. Cordless, super duper light weight, and a DYSON!! Hello……I’ve always wanted a Dyson!!!
I instantly put it together and started vacuuming. When it arrived, it had some battery charge but not a full charge. I got to vacuum for about 10 minutes and then I had to plug it up to charge it. You can keep it up and out of your way with the awesome hanging charging station. Love that!
After a full charge (takes about 3.5 hours) it was ready to go full steam ahead. A full charge will give approximately 26 minutes of cleaning time. As long as I pick up toys, shoes, and everything else up out of the floor before vacuuming…I can sweep almost my entire house in that amount of time.
Check out all the nastiness and filth (and candy wrappers) that it picked up. I’m almost too embarrassed to post this photo – but I’m putting it all out there. YUCK!!! Photo on the left is all the dirt still in the collector bin. The one on the right, I had dumped the bin out on a plastic shopping bag.
The things that I love about the Dyson DC50 Cordless Vac:
- It’s so lightweight…less than 5 lbs.
- No cords to have to fight with.
- It’s super sucky (a good sucky!) 🙂
- Easy to empty the dustbin.
- I can take the long handle off and use it as a handheld vacuum which is great for furniture, stairs and the vehicles!
- I love how easy it turns and swivels around corners and edges.
Here are some other key features to mention…it’s long and detailed, but important information.
