We really should get a job as Hoover testers.

Morning all..well its 2017 and a bit frosty here but sunny and looking good. I love to see our garden covered in frost.
As my title says we should be given jobs as Hoover testers..last year we got through 3 of them and finally the one my mum gave me actually blew up on New Years Eve..lights flickered,burning smell and the girls ran for cover..and then a god almighty grnding and a bang and it was dead.
I can't understand why..yes i do hoover everyday downstairs..and the stairs once a week and bedrooms also..it seems to me that hoovers are not built to last these days.
We clean them out,maintenance them and always empty the cylinders..i am so mad. I could understand them going bang if we abused them and let them get full of crap but we don't.
So we have taken the decision to spend some of our precious money and buy a Henry..we had a similar one about 15 years ago and its still going, but hubby has it in his shed for clean up when he has done wood working so the sawdust isn't everywhere.
Last year we sent about £90 on 2 of them and one was given to me..so i am going to go for something more substantial this time.
The sales are on and i am surfing the internet to find a bargain.
For now i will use my little Bissell carpet sweeper to keep it tidy.

Do you find that some things aren't built to last any more..we had a washer dryer for a good twenty years before we had to replace it..and then it was only because the parts were obselete.
Since then we have had to have a new washing machine every 4-5 years.The quality of some items these days is shocking and they reckon technology has moved on..really ?
If a hoover can't keep up with my house then it doesn't deserve to be in my house.
Let me have them for a good few months and i will put it through its paces lol.
Enjoy your day..
I am off to surf and buy.

  2. We bought a really cheap Henry a few years ago.It cost a fraction of what the previous dyson cost and was a lot more efficient. It is good as new and hopefully will last me a long time

  4. I've always had a Hoover but it doesn't get used like yours. I usually have to buy a new about every five or six years. You just plain wear them out, girl!!! ;)

  5. My mother in law calls it "backwards technology"!

    I'm another Henry fan, always used them in the hotels and bars I've worked in. The rabbits attack his eyes though!

  6. I have had Dysons for the last few years but I think it will be a Henry next time I get one. I love the long hose and that they follow you around so easily and are MUCH lighter than any of the Dysons I have had.

  7. Hi Sue..we ideally wanted a Hery but in the end plumped for a wet and dry one..this one has a long hose and is very lightweight as well..i love the castors and love to know a small pull and its right behind me..
