Am I about to dedicate an entire post to an iron and a hand vacuum? Yes.
Are you in the market for a new iron? Perhaps I could make a recommendation? I had a Rowenta, which I loved, but it was leaking. So I ponied up some credit card points and ordered this one below.
I read the reviews on Amazon before ordering. I have no regrets, I just ironed a shirt in half the time it would have taken me with the old Rowenta.
Darby has the Dyson hand-vac (above). When I visit her I like to use it. Then I like to go to Target and look at it. That’s all I do, look at it. Actually, one time I put it in my cart, but walked about 12 steps, then took it back to the shelf. I have shopped for it online, but I can’t bring myself to spend the money. The Dyson is $349. I can think of a billion things I’d rather have for $349 over a hand vac. (Darby’s was a gift, I assure you she would never have bought that for herself.) I hate Dust Busters, I’ve never had one that works properly. I just wanted a good powerful hand vac. So I was doing some research after I bought the fancy iron and came across the Hoover Platinum Collection Cordless Hand Vac. It had me at “powered by an interchangeable 18-volt Lithium-ion battery that provides fade-free power“. So when the battery dies, it dies. But when it runs it runs strong to the end. I love it.
Now, anyone with eyeballs will likely agree… he’s a little nerdy looking. I think the design of the Dyson is better, but this little machine really gets the job done, and looks aren’t everything. His first night with us we found ourselves crushing up tortilla chips and throwing them on the ground, just so we could suck them up.
While this post sounds like an infomercial, I assure you I am getting paid by no one to review these products.
