Was that eye-catching title or what?
Oh, Pun alert, eye-catching and vacuuming! Same thing! D’oh!
I love my super strong, powerful vacuum! Cost me, heck, I’m still paying for it, an arm and a leg! But it can surely suck up some good gook!
When we were in Toronto, I used it sporadically, occasionally, because we had hardwood floors. Now, I used it once a week, we have Carpets!
Being Deaf-Blind, I can’t see what I am vacuuming, the bits of dust are very small you see, so I go slowly and focus in one area at a time. I can feel things going up the hose.
But, what if something gets stuck? Being Deaf-Blind I have vacuumed whole rooms only to find that a lot of crap is plugging the hose and I was unaware of it! I cannot see that R2 is missing things, and I cannot hear that the machine is stopped sucking. The machine light, and the rug power bar light is on. It is not until I take the rug power bar off that I notice nothing is getting sucked up! Ugh! I gotta un-stuck it! Luckily, R2 has a powerful reverse feature, it can blow as well as suck! After un-stuck-ing R2, I (grumble) re-vacuum the whole room again! Sighs!
I also have ataxia, so I am bound to trip or fall over the vacuum, which I can R2, you can guess why.
I do like to vacuum while sitting on the ground, that way I can actually see what I am vacuuming. I don’t want to miss a thing!
R2 is a wet-dry vacuum, and I have vacuumed some weird things:
- spiders, ants, bugs
- food, eaten or not
- dishwasher garbage bin
- spilled milk and salad dressing
- animal fur by the truckload
- bathtub drainage hair clogs (by far the grossest)
- and your general lego or small toys!
Vacuuming can be a lot of work, but a lot of rewards! Clean floors, kids and sinks!
What is the weirdest thing YOU vacuumed last week?
