I think I have a small obsession with tools to clean my floor. Don't get confused, I don't actually clean my floor that often, but every time I see a commercial with the latest product on the market, I start thinking that maybe if I purchase that item, my floors will be clean all of the time. So far, it hasn't happened. I do have a lightweight vacuum that is OK to use, so I do it more often than I used to, though. The vacuum that I currently own doesn't have attachments of any kind, it is just a "basic" model that vacuums floors. I thought when I convinced my husband we needed a new vacuum that I didn't need any attachments. I didn't realize how much I would miss them.
I recently learned about a new campaign from Eureka called "Size isn't everything. Power Is", which is centered around their new AirSpeed ONE Reach lightweight vacuum. This vacuum cleaner not only has attachments, but features a 40 foot reach system, weighs less than 7lbs, and is proven to clean carpets better than the number one selling bagless upright. I was intrigued.
It is so hard to find a lightweight vacuum that is also powerful. I have a stick vacuum that is for tile floors, and it doesn't seem to work that great after the first few times I used it. I have stairs and it is such a hassle to lug a vacuum up and down them to clean and to vacuum upstairs. Usually I just vacuum downstairs and call it a day.
While I had a hard time believing that something so lightweight could perform like a heavier vacuum, I started thinking of all the small things in my life that are powerful. My children are small, but yet they can be louder and more energetic than most adults I know! I also own a Magic Bullet, which is the best little blender for smoothies and making baby food. My chihuahua, Hershey, has a pretty loud bark for only being 6lbs too. My smart phone is tiny, but the Internet speed on it is a lot faster than the Internet I have at home. I could go on, but you get the point. I guess small can mean powerful when you think about it!
When I received the Eureka AirSpeed ONE Reach vacuum, I was definitely impressed at how light it was! I was also impressed with the attachments. I started looking around at things that I needed an attachment for and started getting excited. Yes, excited. Attachments with a vacuum beat a wet paper towel any day! I love how the vacuum has a clear canister so that I can see that it is working, and then be disgusted by how dirty my house is. Ha!
A quick survey of a few areas that needed cleaning with the attachments and I decided to clean the window sills behind my couch, a corner of the living room that has a trunk and there are always those tiny little spiders, the bottom of my stairs behind the baby gate, and the sides of my stairs.
Not only did the vacuum take care of the mess quickly, but I am in love with how long the hose is on the vacuum for reaching! And it has several attachments that snap in together to extend even further!
It comes with a great stair attachment (above) for cleaning stairs. The stair attachment spun really fast, but I found that I wasn't patient enough on my big staircase, so I ended up just using the upright part of the vacuum.
All of the areas that I cleaned with the attachments came clean instantly!
I have had a few vacuums in the past that have been so heavy to push that vacuuming really bothered my back. Not with this lightweight vacuum! It was super light to push, and didn't take any effort at all. There are several "levels" of flooring to choose from. I did all of my carpet, rugs, and tile on the 2nd setting, which was just above "bare floor".
I also love how easy it is to switch from the "floor" mode to the attachment mode. Most vacuums that I have owned require you to put the hose into a suction hole on top of the vacuum. This vacuum you just turn a dial to whichever mode you wish to use!
OK, so if you promise not to judge me too harshly - and if you are one of my friends that visit, you still have to visit because I promise my floor isn't THAT dirty (is it?!) - I will show you a photo of the canister after I finished the downstairs area of flooring and using the attachments.
It is hard to see, but the dust goes all the way up under that sticker next to the filter. Gross, right? I think I vacuum pretty regularly too. When you have proof like that, you can see how this small lightweight vacuum is a powerful cleaning tool! Right?
The powerful Eureka AirSpeed ONE Reach is available at Target for $69.99, and at the time of this review, it was currently on sale for $65.00! It comes with a 2-year warranty, and for this powerful, affordable, lightweight vacuum, that is awesome!
What little thing has made a powerful difference in your life?
