Cut the Cord with Dyson

 I’ve always wanted a Dyson, the idea of a vacuum with great suction that never gets clogged. That’s a vacuum I need in my life. When my Dyson DC59 Animal cordless stick vacuum arrived in the mail, the box that it was packaged in was smaller than my toddler. I didn’t know if this little vacuum could handle vacuuming my house, it’s only 4.65 pounds after all!

I definitely put it to the ultimate test, with two dogs and a toddler we’ve always joked that we need to vacuum multiple times a day to keep up. Now that I have this amazing little lightweight cordless vacuum I can finally keep the dog hair and messes under control. I can vacuum our entire house in less than 10 minutes, and honestly I look forward to it now. The suction and power packed into this vacuum is so great.

 I honestly didn’t realize just how much time I could cut down from vacuuming just from having a vacuum that’s lightweight and cordless. It’s cut vacuum time in half (or probably a lot more.) I used to have to give myself a pep talk to motivate myself to get the old vacuum ready to go, now I just grab our Dyson Dc59 Animal from the battery charging station and the house is vacuumed before I can think twice about it.

 You’ll get a 26 minute cleaning time on a full charged battery. When you’re not messing with a cord or lugging around a heavy vacuum that’s enough time to clean all 3 floors of my house and even get those pesky staircases! The vacuum is only activated when you push the trigger, so you won’t waste the battery when picking up toys or moving furniture. The wall mounted charging station is so easy to install and simple to use. I mounted it outside our bedrooms so it’s out of sight of visitors and this way I remember to vacuum our rooms on a regular basis.

Speaking of furniture, the angles the vacuum can even get under couches due to the improved maneuverability from the smaller ball at the back of the attachment. The vacuum is balanced so you can easily reach ceilings as well. It also works great on all floor types; we can easily vacuum hardwood, carpet, and tile.

When it comes to emptying the vacuum, it takes one easy motion and it’s mess free. If you do have a whole lot of hair that tangles around some of the attachments (I swear I shed as much as the dogs.)  You can easily take the brushes out of the attachments to get out those tangles. We untangled all of the attachments in about 5 minutes, It would have taken a whole lot of tools, made a mess, and taken forever to fix if we were dealing with a standard vacuum.

Here are the specs that you can share with your husband to help convince him that you need this vacuum in your life. (Which you do.)
