Lesson Learned: Clean Your Cleaner

For the past several months, I had noticed that our vacuum cleaner wasn’t doing a very good job at picking up, well, anything. I was a bit confused because I regularly cleared out the roller underneath and changed the bag on a regular basis. But the routine maintenance apparently wasn’t enough.

This past weekend I decided it was time to go under the hood. I removed the screws underneath and took the top off of the vacuum’s base. I cleared out some stray dust and hair, but then I discovered where the real problem was: the tube itself.

Somehow, the main tube had become stuffed with heavily compacted dust. I’m not talking a little bit, I’m talking so much that it had actually formed to the shape of the tube. An hour and a half later after digging with my fingers and with a screwdriver, the tube was finally clear of all junk and the vacuum worked like new.

The lesson: changing bags isn’t good enough. Sometimes you have to go under the hood to clear out the residual crap.

That's just what gramps says when he's changing grandma's colostomy bag.

What's the deal with the margins on this page?

Dear Dumbass,

I am officially "stepping up."

This is a Ping about dirty vacuum cleaners. It has nothing to do with Raven Symone, though she does suck like a dirty vacuum cleaner.


Luv ya!,
