I bought myself a Bissell Featherweight vacuum cleaner at the weekend it cost me £29.95 and it really is handy. It doesn’t need a dust bag which is good because they are so dear to buy nowadays, you just empty the little cup after each use and pop it back in.
It weighs less than four pounds so great for an elderly person and it can be used as an upright or as a handheld cleaner.
When I first got it out of the box I was a bit dubious because it looks so small only five inches wide but it picks up great, I am really impressed.
There are two different cleaning heads and a handy crevice head to get into those small corners, I found this ideal for getting behind the television and cleaning the mountain of dust from around all the yards of wires.
Actually I was disgusted with myself when I saw what was behind that television cabinet, even a Christmas card that had fallen down during the December festivities and a few bits of tinsel. The vacuum cleaner didn’t suck the card up, it isn’t that good, but it did suck it onto the end just long enough for me to grab it.
I had to empty the little dust cup after that corner of the room was de-loused, but lets be fair there was a lot of muck.
Great for the stairs and running over the curtains, I hear some of my Dooyoo friends muttering here, ‘What a liar! She leaves six inches of dust behind the television cabinet but vacuums her curtains!!!!!!!’
Of course I do every-one can see the curtains but who looks behind your TV?
I have got myself a bargain and it is so much easier than my big vacuum cleaner.
