VAX distraction!


Vax Rapide Ultra 2 cleaner Just a quickie to let you know there's a new carpet washer launching with me at midnight tonight – it's really easy to set up and use. It's also got a pretty impressive thin suction gap which means it's good at removing a great deal of the water you spray onto the carpet, leaving it not far off dry.

This one's also got an onboard spot cleaner and upholstery tool! Perfect for houses with mutts and kittycats! I know I should be writing my novel, but would be writers are notorious for finding things to distract them, so I happily cleaned my lounge carpet!

Have a look at the before and after pics and if I've taken the photos well enough you'll see how it brought the colour up and pile up really really well. I'll be happier when the little niece comes visiting now and plays on the floor…

Bradley looking like Johnny Depp with his Movember 'tache Just a quick word for the 1st too – happy birthday to my son Brad – he's 24. Twenty FOUR!! How on earth did that happen?!! Here's a pic of him in 'Movember' mode, when the guys grow moustaches for charideee – very Johnny Depp don't you think? Bless him. Big hugs from your mum, my boy. Luv ya!
And do join me on the next blog when I'll bring you news of Gracie's first ever swimming session as she goes to see if hydrotherapy will help her hips! I'll try to get a video – long as she's OK in the water!

    Hi Debs, Wow your carpet has come up nice and clean! I could be tempted on this one having four yorkshire terriers in the house.
    Happy birthday to your son who i must say looks rather nice it’s a pity i’m old enough to be his mother and married!!
    Debs is the new vax machine heavy to push just wondering about my arthritic hands.
    Take care

    Bless you Michelle! Yes I got quite a few comments on ‘those’ shoes!! lol.
    The Vax machine isn’t any lighter or heavier than it looks – if you know what I mean. Whereas for instance the oreck is very very light (lift with little finger), and the Dyson old model (not the ball one) is heavier, the Vax – not filled – is able to be lifted with two hands, if you’re of reasonable strength – like two full shopping bags including milk and potatoes! lol. Rolling it back and forwards is not difficult at all.
    Changing direction just takes a bit of manoeuvering as the wheels are forwards and backwards. It’s a good machine tho – and I’d say the main reason for getting it would be the upholstery attachment, which can let you rub and scrub ground in old stains, as well as the obvious armchairs, carpets, bedding, incl dogs bedding. Other plain machines only have the main roller and head which is limiting and wont allow you to suction out the excess water as fully.#
    does that help? Hope so!
    nb I’m supposed to be sitting her doing my story – am in distraction again, can you tell! lol
    ps ta for comment on my son – I married his dad, my ex, for his DNA! lol
