|Princess P in cleaning action|
As if moving house isn’t enough to get you to properly read test a new vacuum cleaner. For the past 2 weeks I have had the Dyson V6 Absolute in my hands and when I say in my hands, I mean it, constantly! It has been my saviour on the moving front and has made my life so much easier, its safe to safe I'm an honest die hard fan!!!
Having children with allergies, my son's eczema comes out at the slight sniff of dust. Packing up the house made a dust bomb, it doesn't matter how well you have cleaned the house, every time you move one bookshelf or couch, the dust covers the room.
And its not what you can see, it's what you can't see thats the real culprit for allergies and all round yuck. After doing a bit of research I found out that zooming over your carpet may make things feel cleaner because it looks pretty, it's more important to go over a smaller area well to let the brush head get into the pile and grab anything out that shouldn't be living in the carpet. Its the real yuck stuff that you can't see deep down in there that won't be picked up by the average vacuum.
This is why I am such a huge Dyson fan. Having a handy stick vacuum that actually works like the big guns, is a life saver as a mum as it makes real life frustrating jobs quicker.
I've heard so many amazing things about Dyson Vaccum cleaners that I was super to put mine into action. What I loved even more about receiving the Dyson V6 animal was that when it arrived, the courier (not affiliated with Dyson at all) was excited for me. Think a man in his 60's raving on to me about how great his Dyson is and how much he loves his, he told me about the 2 models he owns and how easy it is to replace any parts if needs be. He's had them for years and never had a problem with anything. It was great hearing from a true Dyson lover and getting the tips for using it to clean you car and how great they are at doing the stairs. Hah I loved it!
For the week leading up to the big move I had it out and in action for every time I started packing an area, I could sweep up the dust with ease and get it out of the house with ease.
I cleaned my car before it went into the truck to be shipped down the coast and then we arrived into our new place and started to unpack the boxes and clean up after the removalists, it has lived in my new kitchen, used at least twice daily to pick up the odd bits and keep our carpet as dust free as possible.
I'm excited to mount it on my wall in the coming days, the only problem I have is keeping it from the kids as they also love it and want to use it as a toy, constantly!!!!!
