Vacuum Suggestions

Nearly everyone suggested that I get a Dyson Animal Stick.  I think you all must have missed the line where I said the price must be cheap enough to not make me cry.  The Dyson is $499.00---that would make me cry and Mac sick!  I already hate the stairs and if I spent $500 to clean them I'd burn them down.  I have a vacuum that does the little area rugs downstairs and I Swiffer all the hardwood floors and tile.  Upstairs I have a good canister vac that does the rugs nicely.  What I need is a relatively inexpensive handvac that will only be used to do the stairs.
Mac, bless his heart vacuumed the stairs today.  Maybe I can get Miss Kitty to do them next time.
In the meantime I'm still looking for a relatively INEXPENSIVE  handvac.

  1. Check out Eureka they have several! My daughter has that Dyson, it is not holding a charge like it should for 500 $ :)

  2. My daughter has a Dyson and it has not held up either, so even if you were willing to spend so much for the overpriced vacs, they aren't worth it. She's looking for something else too.

  3. Me thinks the Lady exaggerates for Walmart has a Dyson bagless and cordless for $159.00 but go and check for yourself at http://www.walmart.com/c/kp/handheld-vacuum-cleaner

    1. But I don't want to pay $160.00 to clean the stairs and that's all I want the vac for.

  4. I missed your last post and have no suggestions but my opinion is that Dysons are generally not value for money. I have a Miele, also quite expensive but better rated by the consumer magazine Which. That might be a starting point actually, Which magazine. They have a trial subscription for £1, which you need to cancel after a month but it will give you plenty of time to do the research. x

  5. I always get Mick to do the stairs for me, saves having to buy an extra hand-held vac.

  6. ...perhaps Jo can hire out Mick? LOL!

    Seriously my dear mum always used to do her stairs with a dustpan and hard brush!!! Said she could get in the nooks and cranny's of the corners!

    Whatever you end up buying I'm sure you will make a wise, and reasonably priced, choice.

    All the best Jan

  7. When I had stairs I used a broom or good brush and dustpan.
    Now I do not have stairs so no problems for me.

    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  8. I use to use a brush and a dust pan too, but I'm a 100 years old now and my back threatened to leave home if I did it again.

  9. Wow, that is expensive!!! We have a corded dyson - our second - and it is fabulous, but thank goodness nothing like as expensive as this one is!! Hope you find something that works for you!

  10. Dust pan and brush is VERY cheap, but a bit of a chore (having done it myself) How about a little rechargeable car vacuum?

  11. I like my small Dirt Devil hand-held. I don't think I paid more than $30.

  13. What about a Vax or Black & Decker handheld. We had a B&D one a while back for cleaning the car, that was good and reliable and I don't think we spent more than $40-50 on it.
