keeping it clean.
i think one of the questions i get asked most often, is how i can possibly have so much white around my house with a cute, but dirty dog like lucy living here. my beacon of my sanity has become my dyson ball — a vacuum cleaner with twice the suction of any other vacuum, so it cleans up after all the dog hair and dirt lucy drags in each day. i used to have another vacuum which i honestly cursed at like a sailor every time i had to use it, which was a lot. so when dyson offered to send me out their DC65 and i jumped at the chance to try something better. i can say without a doubt the new The new dyson DC65 cleans better than any other vacuum across carpets and hard floors.
if you’ve seen my cottage, you’ll know i have white flokati rugs, white sheepskins and all white bedding. crazy, right? but it’s all become so much easier to maintain because of all the accessories the dyson comes with — different attachments, and an Instant release hose and wand without awkward fiddly parts to assemble make it really simple to vacuum up every shred of hair and dirt and get into tiny spaces. i can even reach my george nelson bubble lamp, which can collect a lot of dust hanging way up there. it also doesn’t require bags and the filters are washable so there’s no extra costs for replacements. if you’ve got pets or kids who like to make a mess, i can’t say enough great things about the dyson — life changing!
