Vacuuming is easier because of this sleek machine:
It is the Hoover battery powered Linx Cordless Stick Vacuum. It isn't for the heavy duty cleaning but for the everyday quick pick-up and there is no cord to drag around. It is powerful and does have brushes. David finds it runs for over twenty minutes on a battery charge which is plenty of time to clean up the daily wood stove mess, sloppycrumb piles and sand at the door. Remember we are still dealing with tons of snow outside and, although it has finally stopped falling, the ice is covered with sand and salt and a mess gets tracked in daily. There is an excellent price on this at Amazon and this link will get you there.
Added Note: The hand held version failed the in-house testing standards.
