Dyson V6 Absolute review

You know, British fashion designer and Vogue cover girl Victoria Beckham and me, hanging, doing our vacuuming with our Dyson V6 Absolute! It really must be the perfect vacuum cleaner, why else would Victoria be using it!!!! Also good to know that this lovely machine is actually available to all of us mere mortals.

I received this Dyson V6 Absolute last week and have absolutely loved using it.

My two year old Ash is prone to upending a bowl (make that the box) of dry cornflakes or weet-bix onto the carpet, add to that crackers and biscuits and whatever else he gets his hands on, and for extra giggles will grind it with his feet.  Hilarious stuff.  This is when this Dyson stick vacuum cleaner is at its element! I can whip it off its docking station fully charged and ready to go, suck up the mess in an absolute instant, empty hygienically straight into the bin and pop back into its docking station for next time... probably 30 minutes later :/   But seriously, juggling full-time work, being a mum, blogging, and life in general; anything that can makes things a bit easier is a real bonus.  I'm sure a lot of you are with me on that one.

I've also found that because this Dyson stick vacuum cleaner is SO powerful I haven't actually used the 'proper' vacuum cleaner at all.  Also the convenience of not having to lug out that 'proper' vacuum cleaner is fantastic, particularly considering we have carpeted stairs which always makes vacuuming extra fun (not).  The Dyson V6 Absolute easily gives me just as good a result without the extra weight (its only 2.3kg), plus I don't have to worry about filling up the bag and losing suction because the bag is getting fuller, and the extra expense of bags. It's also reassuring to know that the filter expels air cleaner than we breathe, so that means no little dust particles and allergens in the air to irritate sensitive lungs.

I also find it really handy to vacumn the car, again with a two year old, something that is done rather regularly.

Drilling down to details, the Dyson V6 Absolute comes with TWO Dyson engineered cleaner heads; one best for hard floors and one best for carpet.  Add to that a mini motorised tool, crevice tool, combination tool and a docking station and you may as well toss your 'proper' vacuum cleaner out the door.  You can read more about all the specs on the Dyson website.  I honestly highly recommend this product, it gives a fantastic result, is easy to use and a real time saver.
