We haven’t had a vacuum in over 7 years. We had one that was the right size for our New York City apartment, but it had a cord and had this bag that captured all the disgusting dirt and dust that it sucked up, but when it was full, I had to empty it (which I never did) and buy more bags (which I also never did). It just wasn’t conducive to everyday easy cleaning and vacuuming.
Enter the Dyson DC59 Motorhead vacuum. It has the power of a corded upright vacuum, with ease of being cord-free. We don’t have a ton of room in our apartment to store a vacuum and we also have hardwood floors, so what we need is something that is small, lightweight and good for picking up dirt on on our floors without the bulk of normal vacuums.
The Dyson DC59 Motorhead vacuum is the only Dyson cordless vacuum with a direct-drive motor inside the cleaner head, which means the power is up by the handle and not by the floor. It is quick and easy to move around between high, low and hard to reach spaces. We had to dismantle our girls’ bunkbeds for a whole new room redesign (a blog post on that later) and I used the Dyson DC59 Motorhead with its flexi crevice tool to clean the hard-to-reach spaces in the bunk bed, which never would have been able to clean it with it a regular vacuum. I can see myself cleaning our shades, bookcases and behind desks with this.
Also, there’s no stopping and starting with plugging and unplugging in order to get to the next room, and no more getting the cord caught on furniture pieces, which I appreciate because that really is one of the most annoying parts of regular vacuuming.
What’s even better is that it’s light and cool enough that The Hubby and kids (!) wanted to vacuum. WIN! SCORE! (Hubby didn’t want to be photographed vacuuming, but you’ll have to take my word for it.)
And emptying all the dirt and dust is a BREEZE. Just look at all this dirt that it picked up (it’s actually very satisfying seeing all the dirt that accumulates). And it’s even more satisfying that all you have to do is click a button and it all goes right into the garbage can. Cleaning the filter is also just as easy, just pop it right out of the top, rinse it with cold water, wring out all the water and squeeze
