Dirt Devil Broom Vac




I promised I'd tell you my thoughts on the Dirt Devil Broom Vac and here it is. This is an instance where the commercial totally worked on me. Here's the commercial, and I'm dying of laughter because it was actually on You Tube! HAHAHA! Anyway, I got it for $49.99 at Target, I called ahead for the red one and it was actually the only Broom Vac on the shelf so they held it for me. On the Dirt Devil Web site the vac comes in a bevvy of fun colors. I wasn't sure of the assembly, I guess I expected it to be somewhat elaborate like everything in the Mom World is, requiring multiple screwdrivers and wrong instructions. So I took the box to the couch with me and sat down in front of "You, Me, and Dupree" to begin. I was looking for the assembly instructions and there were none. I was miffed. Turns out you just screw the handle in and "Voila!" It's assembled. So you plug it in to charge, it needs 16-20 hours, and it can sit on the charger forever afterward in between uses. It's a little loud, but not vaccuum loud, so that's ok with me. I used it first around the cat box, which was disgusting. It got EVERYTHING! I used it around the cat dish. Once again, lovely! I am loving this. My long hair that collects on the bathroom floor (gross I know), it got it all. The only thing is that if you don't empty out the dirt dish frequently, it doesn't suck as well. But once you clean it out, it's good to go again. I read a lot of reviews that said it was heavy (no it is not, it's actually quite light), and that it didn't work on large areas (that's not true either, it's not supposed to completely replace a broom). I give this an big old "Christmas Story" A + + +. I can wash my floors then keep them clean with this forever, and as Poops starts getting around more, this will become invaluable. I love it. This wonderful, magical electric broom will soon take its place along my "favorite things" sidebar. FYI: I do not get compensated in any way for any reviews, I just want to pass along my favorite things.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Looking forward to catching up on yours! I've been wanting one of these! We have hard wood floors plus dog and baby which require daily attention. I actually went to Target the other day in search of one, but they were out so I settled for a new old fashioned broom and dust pan instead... maybe I'll have to keep on looking!

I have a swiffer wet jet that I LOVE LOVE LOVE. it is so much better than dragging around a mop and bucket!
