My Vacuum Cleaner Obsession And Why I Have So Many.

**This post contains previously gifted items and affiliate links

Hello, my name is Jo and I have a vacuum cleaner obsession.

Growing up I have always loved cleaning and tidying. I would have the cleanest and tidiest part of the bedroom which I shared with my two sisters Jaymee (The mum Diaries) and Tasha (Mummyandmoose) I would regularly ask them if I could tidy their side of the room and then head on into my little brothers bedroom where I would sit and organise all of his toys before cleaning them and then his bedroom.

My first vacuum cleaner was a Henry which my father in law gave me and I loved it, He was such a great cleaner but there were two things I grew to dislike over the years. It wasn’t bag-less and I couldn’t stand it upright.

Then Dyson was all the rage and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the rollerball version. I can’t remember I paid but I was so happy when it had arrived, I thought it was the bizz and I had it for about a year and a half before I gave it to my mum and invested in my first Shark.

My first shark was out of this world, amazing. I remember using my Dyson to clean upstairs where it was carpeted and then going over it in the afternoon with my new Shark and I kid you not the dust cup that collects everything was full to the brim! This was the start of my vacuum cleaner obsession.

Two very hairy Labradors later and a lot of dog hair I went on to acquire my second Shark which was a very kindly gifted to me from the brand, I couldn’t believe my luck. This machine would now be my downstairs vac and my older Shark would not be my upstairs vacuum cleaner. Then my luck came in again when Shark sent their **Klick n Flip automatic steam mop.

The next product I went on to buy was the Shark hand held cordless vacuum which I use to clean my huge six seater sofa. My dogs do not sit on the sofa yet it seems to always attract dog hair. I brought this mini cleaner specifically for my sofa because it was just more convenient to use.

My next vacuum cleaner I brought was an *Eufy robovac, I had seen this be recommended on the Labrador Facebook group that I am part of. Thankfully, my two dogs are past the having accidents inside stage as I had also read a lot of horror stories of robovacs smearing poo everywhere across the floor. My Eufy is controlled by the app and Alexa, the only thing I have to make sure I do is make sure the dogs haven’t dribbled water from their bowl across the floor and make sure the floor is clear from anything that could cause it to get jammed.

I then brought my first Shark cordless vacuum from Facebook second hand for £50 which I love and is also very convenient and quick to use although the battery is a bit poor.

So, in total I own five vacuum cleaners so far and I am not stopping! I can honestly say that I am on top of my dog hair problem but will never rule out reviewing new vacuum cleaners in the future.

To list I have:

  1. Shark NV680UKT Powered Lift-Away True Pet Vacuum Cleaner, Bordeaux
  2. Shark Anti Hair Wrap with Pet Tool AZ910UKT Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner Rose Gold
  3. Shark Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner (Twin Battery) WV251UK
  4. Shark IF200UK DuoClean Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
  5. Eufy 30C Robot Vacuum Cleaner, BoostIQ, Wi-Fi, Super-Thin, 1500Pa Suction
  6. Shark Klik n’ Flip Automatic Steam Mop S6003UK

Individual reviews will be added soon.
