This Vacuum Sucks Good! (Dyson Giveaway!!)

I am so so excited. So excited because I get to give away a Dyson vacuum cleaner to one of you! Yahoo! (YOU could win it!)

I had been saving up some money to buy a new vacuum (a Miele or a Dyson) for quite a while when I was contacted by Dyson to see if I’d be interested in trying out a new model. Yes, the answer was definitely yes! I was especially intrigued because this model they were sending me was a “more affordable” option only available at Walmart. It’s more affordable, but works just like the pricier versions. I like that.

The ideal machine for someone who’s always wanted a Dyson: it has the same great technology expected from us, but at a price point that’s manageable. The DC33 has cyclones that capture more microscopic dust than any other cyclone and a HEPA filter that traps microscopic pollen and allergens, ideal for allergy sufferers. And with a self-adjusting cleaner head, it maintains contact with your floor to seal in suction, from hard floors to carpets.

The Walmart Dyson DC33 Origin comes with three added tools to make sure you get the best out of your machine:

  • Combination accessory tool: nozzle for large debris converts to a brush tool for dusting, ideal for baseboard crevices

  • Stair tool: attaches to the wand or hose for easy cleaning on stairs

  • Mattress tool:  removes dirt and allergens from mattresses and upholstery

One day, the Dyson DC33 Origin ($398.98), showed up at the door in this box. And I got really excited. Yes, my life has come to that… 😉

Then my daughter and I opened the box to find all of these pieces:

For a moment I got scared. Then I realized they had a handy dandy Quick Start Guide that helped us put it together in no time flat. I found that the pieces went together in a pretty common sense kind of way, so I appreciated that.

Once it was together, my daughter and I got to work vacuuming. The first thing I noticed was how good it cleaned. Then I noticed that it was quite heavy to use, especially after using my old canister vacuum for years.

But the next time I used it, the weight of the machine didn’t bother me at all. I was just impressed with how well it cleaned and the fact that I could vacuum the ceiling with the wand. (Yes, I vacuumed the ceiling…I found dust bunnies up there! ewww!)

Another thing that got me was the fact that I kept pressing the wrong buttons when I wanted to release the wand or other parts. But now that I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, I’m definitely getting the hang of how it works. And I LOVE it!

At the point of sharing too much, I have a picture of the mess it cleaned in one day. (Most of it is from our newish wool rug which sheds like an animal currently.)

    I like that I can toss anything in there and comes out clean like magic. It is especially important to work in concert with other cleaning tools such as steam mop.
