Good-bye Kirby, Hello Eureka
We have had a vintage Kirby clean our carpets for the past 16 years. We got it free off of Freecyle in Saint Paul, Minnesota from a woman who didn’t realize it needed a fan belt.
“It’s really hard to push,” she said.
It didn’t have a fan belt, of course it would be hard to push. We purchased a fan belt and it raced across the floor sucking up dirt as it went.
Lately the Kirby hasn’t been pulling its weight in the Hodges household. Hair from a dog and four cats has started to overtake our home. The white carpet has become brown.
It was time to try new technology.
The Dyson vacuum
Mr. Dyson, after suffering the trauma of vacuuming as a child, invented the Dyson vacuum.
I was frustrated as a child when I had to use a vacuum. It had a screaming noise and the smell of stale dog and a lack of performance.
The Dyson Vacuum is priced higher than my budget, but the Eureka Multicyclonic Pet vacuum is not.
According to a sticker on the vacuum, it is: proven to clean carpets better than the Dyson DC40 for less than 1/2 the price.
The Eureka Pet vacuum has helped me with my “dirty carpet depression.” Whoever invented white carpet didn’t have children or a dog.
Maybe the inventor of white carpets has a Eureka Vacuum?
What do you use to clean your carpets?
