So we all know that cleaning the house is one of those painstaking jobs that seem to be repeating like Groundhog Day, especially when there are children in the house. They always seem to attract dirt that instantly falls off the second they get inside and 9 times out of 10 it is on the carpet. Don’t even get me started on the sand – where does it comes from? We don’t have a sandpit or live near a beach! You may remember me talking about my love of Dyson DC24 Hepa and how well it sucks up the dirt from everywhere – well its life is unfortunately slowly coming to an end. I will be sad to see it go because it has been put through some tough times in its long life and has always come out the other side ready for its next run but it’s getting old and on its way out. Over the past 2 weeks I have been trialling 2 Dyson vacuum cleaners and geez have they come along way! Not saying they weren’t great before but technology has sure advanced. 2 lucky readers will also have the chance to trial one of these vacuum cleaners and receive a 20% discount if they wanted to purchase it after their trial.
The Dyson CineticTM DC54 is everything and more that I’d want in a vacuum cleaner! It contains no bags or filters which means no stuffing around and trying to remember to replace, purchase and clean anything – just empty when the hygienic bin is full and off you go again. My house is quite large and I have to empty it every 2nd time I vacuum which isn’t too bad. It is also very easy to empty; simply press a button and empty directly into your bin. When swapping from tiles to carpet there is no need to change over heads or modify anything, it works on all surfaces which is fantastic because it saves a few more seconds I’d otherwise spend cleaning. While this isn’t the smallest machine on the market it is very easy to manoeuvre around furniture and walls which is a must have when purchasing a pull along vacuum cleaner. My kids favourite part of the vacuum is of course the auto cord windup because our current vacuum is an upright so they have never experienced the joy from the cord winding itself up with the push of a button. Now the most important thing anyone wants to know when researching vacuums – DOES IT SUCK? Yes it does, even when the hygienic bin is full it doesn’t lose suction. The Dyson Cinetic™ is the only machine with no bags, no loss of suction, and no filter fuss. RRP: DC54 Animal Pro (RRP$1099), DC54 Animal (RRP$999), DC54 Allergy (RRP$899), DC54 Multi floor (RRP$799). Find the new Dyson Cinetic™ at www.Dyson.com.au.
The Dyson Digital Slim DC59 is a mean piece of equipment if you’re looking for something compact and cordless. It’s lightweight at only 2kg yet has been designed to provide the sucking power of a full size machine. I love how easy it is to manoeuvre into all the hard to reach places that are always painful to clean and since the new V6 motor has been designed specifically for this machine it is one and a half times more powerful than the previous version of the motor. I own a DC44 which has the previous motor and there is so much difference. While mine works great for what I use it for the DC59 is a clear winner if I were looking to purchase another cordless. I love this machine for quick tidy ups because it is simply quicker than plugging in the big vacuum for a small mess. The battery lasts for 20 minutes which is more than sufficient for what I have been using it for however for anything more than that I would use a mains vacuum cleaner because I couldn’t vacuum my whole house in 20 minutes. The latest Dyson Digital Slim™ DC59 vacuum is lightweight, cordless, and packs the same power as a mains vacuum cleaner. RRP $649 for the Animal model and $599 for the Multi floor.
