How to clean the beater / brush bar on a Dyson DC14 vacuum

How to clean the beater / brush bar on a Dyson DC14 vacuum

Almost four years ago I reviewed the Dyson DC07 Animal vacuum cleaner. Since then I’ve moved on to a DC14 Full Kit model. What I have never done in those four years is properly remove the trim to clean the “beater” brush bar that sweeps dust and other stuff into the vacuum. Before I went […]

Never underestimate the power of the force

Never underestimate the power of the force

Suction force, that is. The hungry, all-powerful, all-consuming (mostly) suction of my Dyson DC07 Animal vacuum cleaner. I run the sweeper upstairs and down once a week, and was always impressed with the amount of dog and people hair it sucked up, along with the sloughed skin, eyelashes, bug droppings, whatever that one sucks up […]

Dyson DC07 Full Kit Vacuum Cleaner Review

Ah, the Dyson. The vacuum version of Tucker. The little man amongst the corporate overlords giants. The DeLorean of vacuum cleaner manufacturers — minus the coke bust.
