Over the years I have had to alter my domestic arrangements, including giving up my Dysons but so discovering that, in my humble opinion, Vax vacs are far better as well as lighter. Now things are more troublesome so the constant plugging in, unplugging, lugging to the next room and repeat is now far too tiresome, as is winding the flex at the end (I prefer an upright vacuum but also have a Vax cylinder). Having done some lengthy research into cordless machines I went to a department store that is never knowingly beaten on price so I could try some of these new beasts out.
I was amazed and very pleasantly surprised. I am now the proud owner of a sparkling white German-made machine (which comes with some tools which may prove to be too fiddly) but I cleaned all floors in No.10 today in under thirty minutes. It won because it has the choice of three speeds (I can't push it at the highest!) and long battery life. It was so much fun I may repeat tomorrow. :shock:
I am keeping one of my Vax machines, the cylinder one, because that may be the best option for doing soft furnishings, curtains, lampshades etc. but I highly recommend one of these cordless machines - they are light, easy and very neat - given time the price will reduce too so bear them in mind. DD
