SPRING CLEANING WEEK: Never Lose Suction March 23, 2009

dc25-animalI finally bit the bullet and ordered a Dyson. It will arrive in a couple of weeks but I’m convinced it will be like no other vacuum I have ever owned. I’ve watched the You Tube videos. The fact that it will never lose suction is a big plus. I’ve been a sucker over the last 10 years, buying upright vacuums for $200 a piece that are now parked in the garage. I keep hoping someday they will miraculously start sucking again. This new DC25 Animal has the ball technology, you know, the neat feature where you can scoot around table legs without a collision and the subsequent swearing. The price of this model adds up to at least three of those suckless models in the garage. It’s time to buy big and be done with it. $699 at Sears, The Bay and Future Shop.

(Sorry, no prize pack on this baby. A new prize gets posted tomorrow.)

After you’ve cleaned your house with a bit of bleach, you know it’s really clean. Here are a few new uses for this tried and true cleaner.

  • Lengthen the lifespan of fresh cut flowers by adding 6 to 7 drops of bleach into a litre of water. Cut off the stems first to expose a fresh surface.
  • Clean cutting boards and countertops by scrubbing the surfaces with a brush dipped in a solution of 1 teaspoon of bleach diluted in two litres of water.
  • Polish and brighten glassware with a mixture of one quarter cup of bleach and one cup of warm, water.
