No, this is not a pregnancy announcement.... but it's (almost) as exciting....
We have a new family member!
Introducing..... Mr D:
I have a OCD when it comes to my floors. Vacuuming is a regular thing in my house. Our clothes may be crinkled coz I hate ironing and our garden beds sprinkled with weeds. Our draws and cupboards may wreak hoarding-havoc and our pillows are most likely well past their 'healthy change over' date. BUT.......when it comes to floors.....all is right in the world when my floors are dust/grass/hair/crumb free! It's just my 'thing'.
So, with that said, we go through more vacuum cleaners than the average household, because I put our VC under constant pressure to perform well ;) Our last vacuum cleaner served it's purpose and did us well. It was a fairly 'affordable' one, as it's all we could manage at the time of purchase. It got us through 3 house-moves and more than it's fair share of usage. BUT....it was costly to run (I would need $25 worth of disposable bags and filter pads every 5 weeks) and omitted a smelly dusty air back into the house! By the end of it's time the lid had snapped off, meaning all the attachments would fall out and the floor tool had become scratchy with a loud nails-on-a-blackboard sound that made me shiver with every push. I had just said to my husband that I thought it was on it's last days and we will need to budget in a new one soon.
Fate stepped in....because just days later as I was eating my lunch at work an email popped up on my phone asking if I'd like to trial and review the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Vacuum Cleaner that is bag & filter free!! Hell YES!.....I responded to that email in record time, and just a week later our delivery man turned up with my new favourite family member (shhh....don't tell the kids!).
I know I am sad sad person, but I was seriously like a kid on Christmas when that baby arrived! It came straight out of the box and I've been having so much fun playing with all the different parts and attachments. My favourite? The long thin 'soft' brush which is for cleaning blinds as well as in and under furniture without scratching or getting stuck! A game changer in cleaning our wall of white shutters....
Saturday morning: home from a 7am run and straight into the vacuuming. I'm normal aren't I?? Please tell me I'm normal ;)
What can I say?....I love it!
So my honest thoughts?....
- This is the first time I've owned a Dyson and it has definitely lived up to it's name.
- It's small and easy to store but still powerful and super effective.
- It will work out so much cheaper in the long run as we won't need to buy bags, filters or extra attachments.
- It came with a huge range of attachments for all your cleaning needs!
- It has a 2 year (free) guarantee.
- Free delivery when you buy online here.
- It's quiet and doesn't loose suction when I go from tiles to carpet to the floor rug.
- It's gross but AWESOME to empty out the barrel and to see exactly what was hiding in your carpets.
Yes I was gifted this product, but my thoughts and review is honest. I love this cleaner and am wondering why we didn't save the thousands of dollars over the years buying new (cheaper) vacuum cleaners and bags and just invested in a Dyson to start with. Live and learn I guess.
So, there you go. Welcome to the Chadwick house Mr D. You and me will get along just fine I think!
Are you on the hunt for a new vacuum cleaner? Have you had, or do you currently have a Dyson? Thoughts?
