I can't be the only one who does this... am I?

My husband thinks I'm crazy because I use the vacuum hose attachment to clean up hair and dust bunnies that get stuck in the cracks in the bathroom. Apparently someone told him that the vacuum is only for carpet. haha.

  • I do that also. I use the vacuum hose to get dust off the blinds, in between the couch springs, along the lining of the roof of the house, everywhere. lol

  • I have never heard that before in my life! I always use the sweeper in the bathroom, its so much easier! I use it every where that makes my job a little easier so tell your husband hes on another planet, us house moms know what we are doing when it comes to cleaning:D Keep on doing what your doing:D

  • What does he think would work better?FOr you to climb up there and hand pick them out? lol
    I have my trusty mini shop vac out all day long and trust me...the dust bunnies,cobwebs and such up in the cracks and corners of a bathroom is only part of my daily cleaning,lol.
    Thats what the attachments are for! :)
    You are not alone...there are lots of us smart cleaners out there,lol. :)

  • It's the vaccum hubby had before we got married. He knows all about the attachments cuz he used to vaccum his Rott, yup, I said vaccum the dog. The dog LOVED IT!!!! Now I can't get hubby to acknowledge the vaccum exists @ all!

  • We have a big canister style vacuum with a bare floor attachment and a separate carpet attachment so I literally vacuum my entire house... we used to vacuum our previous cat! The new kitties don't like the vacuum.
