I am hard on vacuums. I seem to break them in about a year or two. When I was a kid, we had the same Hoover vacuum my whole childhood. I want a vacuum cleaner like that! I want to spend my money on something more fun than a new vacuum cleaner every couple of years. So, I bit the bullet and bought a Dyson. They are not cheap though. After I recovered from the sticker shock, I settled on a Dyson V7 Motorhead Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, Fuchsia 227591-01. I liked the lower price that I found on Ebay and the fact that it was cordless. I bought a refurbished one that was an authorized dealer. It has a nice compact head that fits easily under beds and tables. With two dogs and a bird in my home, I need something that can get everywhere.

Now for the not so good:
And, now that I look at the photo I just used, I think I need to use this vacuum and set my computer down for a bit....
I have had this Bissell Spot Bot Pet cleaner for about 6 months. These are vey handy to have around pets that have accidents. And, If you have pets, there will be accidents. The best part is you don't have to get down on the floor and scrub or pull out a big clunky full size carpet cleaner.
Things I like about it:
Things I don’t like about it:
I have only had carpet accidents. I haven't had any spills or messes on upholstery to test it out on fabric. I am happy to have it. It is very handy for a quick small cleanup jobs. I like the set it and let it do the work aspect. I can’t use it late at night and I will have to run my big cleaner over it to remove the tell tale circles. But, it gets the job done with minimal fuss. So, it’s a “yes” on this product from me.
