You know you have officially arrived into the land of the sho nuff grown and sexy when talks surrounding Dyson vacuum cleaners go something like, “Girl, I heard those things are the truth. I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on one.”
That conversation totally happened.
Oh, pulling this beauty out of the box had me at a loss for words. S E X Y she is.
Not only does she look good but she keeps her weight intact at just 12.15 lbs and she keeps her voice low cause the kids noise is enough. She is 30% quieter than her predecessors. She’s a little short, with the hose retracted she comes in at 2.6 feet. Small but mighty indeed.
The hose extends so long, I was amazed. Remember Inspector Gadget, the hose was like that. Looked small but expanded a great deal. I was able to attach the hose and climb on a step stool and dust the fan blades.
Dyson vacuums are known for their ability to remove dust and other pollutants from the air and this version in it’s smaller frame carries on the legacy with its whole-machine HEPA filtration, capturing over 99% of pollen, mold, and bacteria – keeping them trapped in the bin.
Unfortunately mine is no longer shiny and pretty. I promise to come back and tell you the story of scraping the ceilings. This baby made light work of getting the dust off the hardwood floors and clearing it from my sofa cushions.
Update as on 10th July 2018: Fast forward couple of years and my Dyson is still going strong. It still makes light work of the hardwood floors and sofa cushions. But now that stick vacuums in 2018 are not just compact but quite powerful as well, almost at par with their corded versions, I have finally bought a cordless companion for my Dyson Small Ball – a Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute. It sure is tiny but manages to clean as good as my older Dyson.
