Vacuuming in Five Minutes

I am just going to put this out there but I LOVE to vacuum. Surely, I’m not the only one who loves to do this! There is something so gratifying about seeing any dust, crumbs or dirt go BYE-BYE, but I can’t say that I love dragging out my huge vacuum every time to get rid of something so small. So for my thirty-first birthday I asked for a handle vacuum (this is when you know you are officially an adult! Ha!).  But this handle vacuum has literally been life-changing and is one of the best gifts I received, because I literally use it EVERY DAY. I am wondering how I have spent the last 10 years of my adulthood without it!!?! I can literally fire it up at anytime and get all the “small” things without having to drag out my huge vacuum. Best part about it is it has different attachments: one that lets you get into your small spaces and another that allows you to clean upholstery. I promise you will be SO glad you added this to your cleaning supplies and I know it will make your life SO. MUCH. EASIER.  

Attachment one

Attachment one is perfect to get into all those nooks and crannies in your home, as well as a staircase!


Attachment two

Attachment two is an upholstery attachment that I love to use on any upholstered piece.

Below is a before and after from using it earlier today: 

Today was fun because if you follow on Instragam, I showed you this in my stories and how I took advantage of Louie being away at the groomer and did some deep cleaning!

So I have this blanket on my bed that sheds SO BAD and realized this was the perfect way to show you all how this is just ONE of the many ways I use my handheld vacuum.  I love that you can use it in a variety of ways and with the ease of changing the attachments, it is a breeze to go from vacuuming a couch to a space that is hard to reach in no time.

Below is the exact vacuum I use and it looks like they just released an upgraded model, so I have linked that one as well!

As always, let me know if you have any questions or thoughts…Happy vacuuming! 🙂
