Once you go Dyson, you never go back. The brand simply makes the most innovative vacuums on the market — and every one of them is an absolute workhorse. Granted, a Dyson vacuum is an investment. But in terms of home improvement, it may be one of the best investments you’ll ever make.
The vacuum love of my life is the Dyson V7 Animal. I love it because it’s able to convert from a stick vac to a handheld and leap tall buildings in a single bound (OK, maybe that part is an exaggeration). But this cordless appliance is an all-around savior when it comes to everyday messes — food, kitty litter, dust — and a champ at vertical cleaning. I’m talking drapes, molding, even ceiling fans.
In handheld mode, it makes cleaning the car interior a joy (yes, I said joy!). With more than 30 minutes of super-powerful run time, it allows you to get every nook and cranny, from floor mat to cup holder, with near-professional results.
The V7 comes with its own docking station (which, thank goodness, also holds its attachments), so it’s always at the ready. And its ease of use can’t be beat. Even clearing the cup is not difficult, thanks to a hygienic “dirt ejector,” which empties dust from the bin in a single action.
Oh, and it’s just sleek and sexy. Yes, I said it. But then again, I have a thing for great appliances. In fact, my Roomba fills my robotic, automated needs, while my handheld Dyson lets me spot-clean. And my floors are perfection.
Cleaning sticklers pay a premium for this top-of-the-line tool, but in a rare moment of luck for those of us coping with a craving for a Dyson, the V7 Animal is on sale right now!
