A couple of weeks ago, I knocked a newly potted plant onto my woven jute rug in a spectacular spattering of slightly damp dirt. I used the Hoover stick vac that I had had for about a year and while it got most of it up, there was still a very blatant stain in the fabric. That is, there was a stain until I purchased a Dyson.
I really don’t have to tell you how great Dyson's are, but I do have to tell you that I did not, in fact, get a brand new Dyson. Instead, I opted for a refurbished model that had all the attachments I could ever need. I went for the V6 Absolute that includes a crevice tool for hard-to-reach places, a mini motorized tool for pet hair and ground-in dirt, a soft dusting brush, and a soft roller for large debris. It makes cleaning everything, from the hardwood in the bedroom and the tile in the kitchen to the cowhide rug in the living room a freakin’ breeze. The suction in the handheld mode is just as powerful as the stick, too. My boyfriend sent me a video of the aftermath of cleaning the AC vents in our apartment and it was so disgustingly satisfying it felt like he had just sent me a dirty photo. Technically, he did (sorry, dad joke).
What I really want to tell you about is not just how good this damn vacuum is but the fact that it’s this damn good and it’s a refurb. I’ve always been interested in refurbished and renewed products and I got an insanely good deal on a vacuum that costs multiple hundreds of dollars new. It’s probably the best thing I’ve bought all year.
