A week ago if you were to have asked me what my top three least favorite household jobs were cleaning toilets, ironing and vacuuming would have been right up there. But I might have changed my mind on that third one, vacuuming!
One of the main reasons I don’t like to vacuum is that it is way too much of a workout. Our old vacuum is heavy. After I lug it up and down the stairs a few times I don’t need to go to the gym. I guess that is one advantage of vacuuming.
When Bissell sent me one of their CleanView Deluxe Vacuum with One Pass Technology to check out and review I was actually excited to vacuum. Although the vacuum was provided by Bissell and I was compensated for the post all opinions are my own and I did the vacuuming!!
I posted a picture on instagram saying I had just gotten a new toy to play with. One of you questioned my use of the word toy in the same sentence as vacuum! Well, I think in order to qualify as a toy it has to be fun and using my new vacuum was fun!
We are in the middle of redoing our bedroom so that meant a lot of cleaning out and moving of furniture. That can be pretty scary when the furniture hasn’t been moved in 15 years!
Let’s just say the vacuum got a really good work out and I must say it was fun to use.
Things I love the most about this vacuum:
1. It’s light weight:
A huge plus in my book, especially when I have to lug it up and down the stairs!! I guess the only downside is now I have to go to the gym.
2. The attachments:
All the attachments have a nice little home somewhere on the vacuum. With my old vacuum the attachments were in a drawer in my laundry room so I never bothered to use them, thus I never vacuumed in places that the hose would have reached. It was just too much trouble to get the hose out of the laundry room and then take the vacuum half way apart in order to attach it!
With the CleanView Deluxe the hose is already there and all you have to do is grab the attachment you want from the back of the vacuum, add it to the hose and you are ready to go!
I love the little turbo brush which is perfect for the stairs. So much easier. It just attaches to the hose quickly and easily.
The crevice tool is pretty great too – perfect for getting in along the baseboards and the crevices of the stairs.
And there is even a Dusting brush for furniture, lamps, books, baseboards etc.
3. No Bag!
It never seems to fail at our house that the vacuum bag is full when I need to vacuum and I have no extra bags! I also hate the job of trying to empty the bag without spilling it’s contents all over the freshly vacuumed carpet! The Bissell Cleanview Deluxe makes it so easy. There is no bag to deal with. I couldn’t believe how much stuff it picked up off my carpet. My carpet didn’t look anywhere near that dirty but I guess it was!!
You just remove the canister, flip open the bottom (over the garbage can) and it’s empty and ready to use again. No bag, no mess!
How easy is that!
The other great thing about this vacuum is that with the OnePass Technology the vacuum picks up everything the first time! No need to go over and over the same section of carpet!
So what is one of your least favorite household tasks??
