With two small kids under the age of 5, my apartment is a magnet for mess.
From pretzel crumbs to colored pencil shavings to Cheerios, my floor can be subjected to just about anything at any given moment. Luckily, we have a Dyson V6 Absolute Cordless to help clean up the never-ending mess. Calling this household device a vacuum cleaner doesn’t do it justice—this is a MACHINE! While it’s completely compact and easy to use, it packs such a powerful punch that lumping it in a group of average vacuums just doesn’t seem right.
Unlike others on the market, this two-speed Dyson lifts layers of dirt in addition to picking up surface crumbs and the like with the ease of a trigger. The suction is so intense that it sucks up the most stubborn dirt and dust for an unmatched deep cleaning. It works brilliantly on carpets, hardwood and linoleum. Plus, it comes with four attachments (dusting brush, crevice tool, dusting tool and rotating brush turbine tool) for multi-use. We use it to remove dirt and dust from those hard-to-reach places, such as vents, ceilings and walls. I also enjoy using the crevice tool to suck up the nibbles and bits from my son’s highchair and stroller. The slender attachment is also great for cleaning out nooks and crannies from around large kitchen appliances such as stoves and refrigerators. Not only are the attachments huge bonuses, but the V6 can also turn into a handy handheld. Simply remove the handle and you’re equipped with a pint-size picker-upper, ideal for cleaning couches and cars.
There’s no denying that the functionality is the most important aspect, the sleek, hi-tech design makes it even more appealing. My husband constantly raves about how cool it looks. He once said that it “seems like a gadget straight out of the “Jetsons!”‘ In addition to the performance and feel, the convenience of it being cordless, bagless and compact is a huge benefit for those of us who live in small spaces.
If you’re looking for a vacuum cleaner with incredible pickup power, look no further. The price might seem steep, but you get what you pay for. Trust me, it’s a splurge—but it’s well worth it!
