See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
A few days ago, I was vacuuming my living room. I had sprinkled a bit of carpet fresh earlier on (I generally don't use it, but every now and then I like to put some down and make things smell fresher). Anyhow, the powerhead on my Dyson canister vacuum stopped working. I mean, it would run for 2-5 seconds and then quit. I'd push the power button, it would come on for another 2-5 seconds and quit. The suction on the vacuum still works, but without the powerhead it really doesn't work on carpets all that well. So... it took me about 30 minutes of doing that in order to vacuum my living room and get all of the carpet fresh out of the carpet (generally takes all of 5 minutes).
I called Dyson and apparently there is some loose wiring so they are sending me a new hose, but it won't be here for about 10 business days! I generally vacuum my living room every day. With a 2 1/2 year old, a dog and a cat it needs to be done. So it's been three days since I was able to vacuum and it is driving me crazy.
And I can't borrow a vacuum from anyone because everyone I know around here either has central vac or they have no carpeting in their house.
