Its a dustbuster!!
I always remember that old television commercial singing about a dust buster and thought it was such a great name for a little hoover.
If you have kids you will know that they are messy, very messy. Give them a biscuit and guaranteed half of it will end up on the floor, not in one piece but crushed into a thousand pieces after one of the said kids has stamped on it. I am also weaning my little boy at the moment so half of his food ends up on the floor and not on his mouth. As meal time happens three times a day and snack time is two times a day I did not want to always have to get out a big, heavy hoover to vacuum up just a few bits of food and crumbs so I decided a duct buster was the perfect way to clean up and also a quick and easy solution.
Black and Decker are a really good name in my opinion in household, appliances, power tools etc so I knew this would be quite a good brand to purchase. This is quite a basic dust buster but then that was really what I was looking for, I didn't need something to fancy, just something good enough to pick up all the food and dirt. This dust buster is cordless which is something I was definitely looking for as I need to sue it in funny places, like under the dining room table to pick up food and things like that so I needed to not have to worry about a cord and worrying that it would not stretch where I needed it to. The dust buster charges on a wall charger. Its just like a cradle that you place the dust buster back in once you have used it so you have somewhere to store it as well as somewhere you can charge it at the same time which is nice. I always place the dust buster back in the charger when I am not using it so I never really run out of charge. Plus, I only really use this for a few minutes at a time, never a long amount of time so it will always keep its charge which is nice. Whenever I use it the motor runs really fast and has a really great suction on it so food is picked up fast and conveniently.
This dust buster is handy to hold and quite light so you can use it just holding it in one hand which is nice. This is really handy when I am reaching under the table as I can hold myself up with one hand and use the dust buster with the other one. According to the paperwork you get with this dust buster the capacity of the holder is 13.6 ounces so it will hold 70 percent more dirt and debris. I must admit that I am guilty of never emptying the bowl and it does always seem to last for quite a long time. When you do come to empty it it comes apart easily when you press the release button, then you can just empty it out into the bin and snap it shut again, ready to pick up more food.
I also have a dog and when he comes and sits in the lounge and on the couch with us he seems to leave his black hair everywhere. Its nice to have a cuddle with him but then I have to clean up afterwards. The dust buster also works perfectly on the couches too as you do not have to lift up a heavy vacuum cleaner to do the couches, you can just zoom this small handheld over the couch and it picks up the hairs well. The dust buster comes with a little upholstery brush which fits into the small slit in the mouth of the dust buster at the front to pick up the hair. The brush has quite small, tightly spaced together bristles so it moves the hair off the couches and lifts it up so it can be sucked up by the dust buster. The brush slots into the dust buster when you are not using it so you can store it easily.
A great little tool for all your small dirt needs!
