This is super cool! I don't sleep, so this will keep me entertained for a bit!

1.) Something that is grey.

Well, it's more silver-ish, but it'll do! (WL)

2.) Something reminiscent of rain.

Because the sound of the rain is so peaceful :)

3.) Something food related that is unusual.

I know, it is unusual! We will be using it for liquid sugar that we make, to make our homemade Starbucks green tea :) (WL)

4.) Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. (Yes, pets count!)

It's for my boyfriend, and for the aforementioned green teas we make :) I have one, and he's pretty jealous of it. Not to mention he spills so! (WL)

5.) A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it!

It's called Jesus' Son. It is really...interesting to say the least, and I can guarantee not at all what you'd expect! (Unless you're expecting drugs, and the main character to be called Fuckhead!)

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related!

Clever? Or wrong. Lol.

7.) Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...)

Because who doesn't miss these guys?

8.) Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it.

I mean...he's beautiful, so.... <3

9.) A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why?

My username is a big hint to what this movie is! It's just so happy, and makes me laugh every time I watch it (and I've been watching it multiple times every year since it came out, and I was only 5!). It's just a genuinely happy, feel-good movie, with great music :)

10.) Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain.

You know, for heat/fire when there's no electricity! (WL)

11.) Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals.

It might not be the norm, but it's a gift card. Reason being instead of something specific, is with a gift card I can buy food through Amazon. Times have been a little tough around here, and we barely make it through the month money, and food wise. To know I had a little money to spend on groceries somewhere would be a major relief, and put both my boyfriend and I out of stress. I know it's not a "goal goal", but our happiness is a goal of mine, and it's been a little shakey as of late :/(WL)

12.) One of those pesky Add-On items.

Because ours is torn, oops! (WL)

13.) The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why?

A nice, damn vacuum. Our current one sucks (bad pun), and I am really picky about a clean carpet. It would just be really nice to have a nice one, and that'll last instead of having to buy a new one every so often. (WL)

14.) Something bigger than a bread box. EDIT A bread box is typically similar in size to a microwave.

Because it never occurred to me you could buy this on Amazon!

15.) Something smaller than a golf ball.

Individually, smaller than a golfball!

16.) Something that smells wonderful.

I love, love, loooooove this perfume. I've had samples, but never the whole bottle! (WL)

17.) A (SFW) toy.

Not a toy per say, but it's definitely fun, and entertaining for hours! (WL)

18.) Something that would be helpful for going back to school.

Pens! Believe it or not, these have always been my favorite, and despite the fact there's a bunch in a box, I always ended up with none! That's why people should have their own!

19.) Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be.

Because I...I'm...I'm a woman possessed. Normally I'm obsessed with Sherlock but since it's not out yet, I'm catching up on Doctor Who, and I can't. Just can't stop. Been talking in a British accent on accident for days! I also freaking love hoodies so it's the best of both worlds. (WL)

20.) Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand.

BECAUSE LOOK AT IT! Making tasty foods on it for the belly! (WL)

Hey, this was a lot of fun! Regardless of the outcome, thank you. Thoroughly enjoyed myself :)

EDIT: BONUS: Anything made in Oregon.

It's a whole gift set! It's like it knew! I actually added it to my WL. My favorite jam was taken off the shelves, so I'm always up for trying new ones :)

u/GettingFiggyWithIt · 3 pointsr/quilting

Hey/u/SoulSister85 I am not a textile conservator, but I am a collection manager in a museum with some very basic knowledge. Here's a few things I would suggest:

- Do not clean or dry clean your quilt without repairs being made first. It's a sure fire way to have it fall apart more. Try vacuuming instead to try and get some dirt off the fabric. I personally like these, as they connect to your regular vacuum. If you want to lesson the suction just drill a few holes in the plastic. If you decide later you want to cover them you can do so with duct tape. https://www.amazon.com/Schneider-Industries-Micro-Vacuum-Attachment/dp/B000BSJCLY Sometimes trying to remove stains will create more damage, especially if you don't know the year the fabric was produced and how it will react. When in doubt do a light test on the back first, but make sure it's not in a section that is essential to the quilt's integrity in case the fabric loses its structure.

- If you decide to display this quilt I would keep it out of direct sunlight and rest it (keep it in an archival/ acid free box in a closet somewhere) at least 2-3 months of the year. This will keep the colors vibrant for years. Don't be afraid to handle it gently- taking it off display and resting it will do more good, even with the handling, than if you were to keep it up full time.

- Think about spending some money on a strong and durable hanging system. This is a good guide of how museums tend to hang textiles https://museum.gwu.edu/hanging-textiles . Ultimately, whatever you do should be reversible, so if for some reason you don't want to hang it anymore all of the material can be easily removed without any damage to the quilt. Using cotton tape on the back of the velcro will ensure the cotton tape and cotton thread are the only things touching the quilt fabric, making sure that nothing sticky or acidic comes in contact with it. Added bonus is you can choose whatever kind of velcro you want (although I would suggest long lines of it for added stability and less pull on your fabric in certain sections). If you want to go the museum route, this is the website I usually get my cotton tape and velcro from https://www.gaylord.com/search?text=velcro

- If you want to try your hand at it, feel free to try and do some simple repairs! Otherwise see if there's a local quilting guild who will be willing to help out or lend guidance. If you want to have it professionally conserved, the person handling your quilt will likely add fabric in to both blend into the pattern and strengthen the quilt. Unless you are dead-set on making this piece museum quality and think it's worth something financially, this might not be the solution for you, only because of the cost involved. If you do want to get some quotes, this is the best resource for finding conservators near you. Just type in your zip code and select "textiles" and certified conservators will pop up. http://www.conservation-us.org/membership/find-a-conservator#.W_zDw3pKhp8

-This is a pretty good resource for general knowledge of quilt repair and conservation, check it out! http://www.quilthistory.com/repair.htm

-What I tell most people who ask me about their sentimental and precious objects they want to display in their home is to balance the object's safety with your enjoyment. Don't sacrifice one over the other. Precious objects are worthless if you can't enjoy them, so hang this baby up and let it bring joy to your home!


And of course feel free to PM me if you have any questions. If I don't know the answers I'll try my best to find out for you.

u/nkdeck07 · 2 pointsr/dogs

Yes, you need to take your son to an allergist, have them test for the dog allergy first and then if he still has it do a 6 month round of immunotherapy to get the allergy to essentially go away before doing this. I still have them to a mild extent but the amount mine has lessened is like night and day.

Allergies are weird, if it's a mild allergy then he may just adjust to the dog after a few weeks (I did with mine though I am still mildly allergic) but if the allergy is severe it can actually get much much worse with repeated exposure (like for instance my cat allergy eventually winding up with me turning into a full body hive due to just being on a floor in a house with a cat where the cat wasn't even allowed but this took 3-4 months of repeated low level exposure)

If you are intent on bringing a dog home there are quite a few things you can do to help

  • Commit to grooming the dog every single day. This makes it so the dander comes out on the brush not on your furniture and such.

  • Bathe every 2 weeks. This also significantly helps cut down on dander. You can also use a product like Allerpet or these little baby wipe things they make for dogs between baths that helps cut down on the dander as well. Ours gets a daily wipedown and it seems to help a lot.

  • Short haired vs long hair is a bit of an issue and it tends to be dog specific. Our dog is short haired but it's really hair (vs fur) and it's a single coat so she doesn't shed at all (or it's all coming out on the brush every day). My parents dog however it long hair which people say should be less allergenic but I am incredibly allergic to that furball. It's going to be dog specific, look for poodle type or wire haired and you will probably do better but it all does depend. A short haired, single coat dog that doesn't seem to be shedding when you get it may be your best bet as it makes for minimal yet effective groom (i.e. quick brush down with a soft brush every day) Look for hair that's more like 1/2 an inch vs something really short like a pit-mix or bulldog.

  • Don't let the dog into bedrooms, ideally don't even let them upstairs (getting a baby gate with a door in it, makes this process so much easier). Bedrooms need to be allergy free as it's essentially 8 hours a night of getting to "escape" the allergens.

  • On that note make sure your son showers before going to bed, this does more to help me then anything else since it gets the bedroom really dander free. I don't even leave my dander covered clothes in the bedroom, they sit outside in the hall. Also vaccum the bedroom once a week to remove any dander that has snuck in as well as changing the sheets every week. Getting a sealed mattress pad will help too.

  • Limit which pieces of furniture the dog can get on. Ours is only permitted on one couch and the couch is covered in a blanket that gets washed every 2-3 days to remove the dander.

  • Get a very good vaccum with a hepa filter on it. I have this one and it's excellent. Takes the pet hair right off the couch and is so powerful it will try and lift up area rugs, and the hardwood floor attachment is great for getting pet hair. Commit to vaccuming at least twice a week.

  • Try a few different allergy meds and talk to your doctor about which ones can be taken together safely. I take Allegra in the morning and Nasacort at night and between the two of them it works really well. I'd start on the Nasacort as soon as you can as it takes about 2 weeks to build up in your system and be effective but it's one of the better meds out there. Have your son try Zyrtec, it's the best one off prescription at the moment but unfortunately gives me dry mouth as a side effect. If your son doesn't have that side effect it's the best one out there. After that in order of effectiveness is allergra and then claratin. Talk to your doctor as your son may be able to take claratin and allergra simultaneously (one in the morning and one at night) which works better as it keeps him covered the whole day.

  • Wash the dogs bed frequently (ours gets washed every time the dog gets bathed) so that the dog doesn't re-get the dander on them when they lie down.

    Also just saw you are currently having a lab/collie mix at home. You may luck out with this as collies seem to have hair that doesn't trigger allergies (at least in me)
u/LagunaGTO · 31 pointsr/AutoDetailing


Here is my work from this last weekend. I am a completely mobile detailer and live in the Chicagoland area. I do not actually open until May but this client reached out to me and I wanted to make sure they were taken care of properly and establish a good relationship.

This detail was a lot of fun. I always enjoy interiors because they are such a huge turn around for not as much work as something like a full-blown paint correction.

The client had brought his car to a bodyshop to have it repainted. Unfortunately, while the windows were removed from the vehicle, they were not covered. This resulted in the work of the body shop making its way into the vehicle and covering it. This vehicle is definitely this client's baby and fun car. He was absolutely devastated and really wanted his vehicle brought back to life so he could once again enjoy something he has put a lot into.

I look forward to potentially working on this vehicle again and helping this owner get his car to any level of perfection he is looking to achieve.


Work Done

The client wanted a Definitive Interior Cleaning as well as a Showroom Engine detail. Services described here

To a great help to me, this client removed the seats and cleaned them all before I even came on site. This allowed me to focus a lot more time on the interior and door jamb areas and the engine. We did not put the seats back into the vehicle as I wanted the fabric coating to fully dry before they were put back in. That is why you will not be seeing any seat pictures. They were just fine.

The interior was vacuumed and then was completely cleaned with Detailer Pro's Total Interior Cleaner. This product is my go-to for interiors. It works flawlessly and it has a great smell that does linger and just smells naturally clean. I use these types of interior clothes for working with that product.

To assist in cleaning some of the interior trim and the vents, a steam cleaner was used. The steam cleaner was very carefully used on the headliner as well. It is very important to not let a headliner get soaked or too wet as the glue is very thin. Doing this can cause headliner sag.

Nothing beats cleaning the interior of a vehicle with this brush. It is absolutely my favorite brush.

All interior hard surfaces were treated with Lexol Premium Protectant.

The entire interior carpet was cleaned utilizing a heated carpet cleaner. The entire interior carpet where feet will be, the two front seats, and all four mats were treated with CarPro Cquartz Fabric Coating.

The pedals were cleaned up with steel wool as much as possible. Lots of plastic on them which made it difficult to polish to the level it could have been.

All door jambs were sealed with Sonax Polymer Net Shield.

The engine was completely cleaned using P21S Total Auto Wash and just general microfiber clothes from a place like AutoZone. The engine was then dressed with Adam's In&Out Spray to enhance the appearance of all plastic/rubber parts.



Overall the client was very satisfied and could not stop staring at the vehicle.

He stated that it looked like new again and like a completely different car. He definitely seems ecstatic to have his vehicle back to the way it should be.

The client did point out the spots still left on the headliner and was instructed on properly cleaning that overtime to remove them. I expressed no issue/charge to work on the headliner again if I come out for new work.


Reflection and Lessons Learned

Not much for this one. I had a chance to finally clean a headliner that really needed it. It's definitely very difficult to clean something when you can't be that aggressive with and just have to take time and a lot of patience.

I got pictures of the interior beforehand, but not the engine. The engine was worse off than I was planning and without the use of water like normal, it took quite a bit of time. It turned out just fine though. Engines can be cleaned either way.


Total Time: 5 hours on interior, 2 hours on engine

Total Cost: $390



u/false_parallax · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Things that pop into my head as, "obvious," (that isn't a stab! My obvious isn't your obvious, after all) if I were in your situation:

  • Plates, bowls, and serveware (like serving platters, etc)

  • Flatware (forks, knives, etc). Register for at least service for eight, even if you don't need it. Sometimes they can go missing or get damaged; it's good to have backups.

  • Good knives.

  • Pots and pans. Cast Iron will last forever when cared for properly, but sometimes the, "cared for properly," part isn't for everyone. I have a stainless set that is sturdy and awesome with a couple separate nonstick pieces. Get a multi-pot too.

  • Drinkware - basic tumblers/glasses for everyday use, mugs, plus any specialty stuff you desire such as wine glasses, champagne flutes, etc.

  • Bakeware: Cookie sheets (are not just for cookies!), a small and medium casserole dish, maybe some Pyrex. You have to check this stuff out to get a feel for what you'd like, but you'll definitely want something. Maybe cake and cupcake/muffin pans if you're into that.

  • Tools such as spatulas, measuring cups and spoons, whisks, tongs, rolling pin, ice cream or cookie scoop, can opener etc.

  • Other items kitchen items like mixing bowls, cutting boards, strainer/sieve, ice trays, lidded (think tupperware or rubbermaid or whatever) containers. If you like salads a lot, consider a salad spinner.

  • Kitchen appliances - a KitchenAid if you like to bake. A hand mixer for smaller jobs. A blender. A microwave.

  • Coffee maker of choice if you drink coffee - anything from french presses to fancy stuff is fair game. Add a coffee grinder if you get a french press. If you don't drink coffee, perhaps a nice kettle, electric kettle, or water cooler that also heats.

  • Dish towels.

  • A vacuum - I have this one from Shark and it is fantastic. Dysons are good, and Roombas are nifty, but I might hold off on that since you need so much other stuff for your house.

  • Depending on where you're registering, consider other cleaning supplies - a bucket, a broom and mop (or a Swiffer) and related supplies.

  • Towels (at least four), hand towels, washcloths.

  • Bed linens - sheets, for the love of god sheets. Jersey ones are glorious. Blankets. A comforter or duvet and duvet cover. Pillows.

    Not so obvious to me, but still needed:

  • A set of tools - doesn't have to be complex. You can pick a pre-assembled set or put a la carte pieces. If you do individual pieces, consider adding (at minimum): varying sizes of phillips and flat-head screwdrivers, various screws (just get a multipack), hammer, nails, level, measuring tape, tool box, box cutter, wrenches - honestly, I'm an airhead with this stuff. Not to fulfill stereotypes but I seriously would need to double-check with my husband to make a more-complete list because I'm drawing a blank. But it's a start.

  • Shower curtain/liner if you didn't register for a fancy ensemble.

  • Perhaps an over-the-toilet etagere (those shelf things).

  • A good, sturdy flashlight. Bonus points if it is rechargeable AND can take an external battery.

  • Candles - not necessarily ones that smell pretty, but ones you can use reliably during power outages.

  • A fire extinguisher. Make sure you get it checked periodically so you know you can still rely on it.

  • Hangers. Macy's sells my favorite but I think they're on Amazon too.

  • A grill, if you're into that.

  • Lawn and other outdoor tools - a lawnmower, rake, shovel, snow shovel.

  • Door mat for inside and outside.

  • A vase, if you think you might ever have flowers in the house. And just because you don't often have flowers doesn't mean you shouldn't get one. Unexpected flowers are awesome, not having a home for them sucks.

  • Board games - either for yourselves or to entertain company.

  • An iron and ironing board OR a steamer if you're like me and hate ironing.

  • Laundry hampers and mesh laundry bags.

  • Trash cans - kitchen, miscellaneous household, and outdoor. Recycling, too, if you plan to do recycling.

    I'll add more if I think of them!

  1. I have a pizza cutter similar to [this one] (https://smile.amazon.com/Pizza-Cutter-Stainless-Integrated-Mozzbi/dp/B01DLHGXA4/ref=sr_1_6?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1496203463&sr=1-6&keywords=pizza+cutter) but the exact brand isn't on here because I bought it from a different site. It is by and far the best I've ever used. I went through quite a few trying to find one that cuts well :)

  2. I keep [this] (https://smile.amazon.com/Kershaw-1660-Onion-Folding-SpeedSafe/dp/B0009VC9Y0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496203582&sr=8-1&keywords=kershaw+onion+leek) with me at all times. It was a gift from a friend many moons ago. We were all amazed that he had bought it on amazon.com because back then we thought amazon only sold books :D

  3. My favorite mobile app is [Pokemon Go!] (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo&hl=en)

  4. [This] (https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00BJQPX8S/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=IA15C3NOZJXFA&colid=2Z0D7A1SRJBDE) "welcome" mat is amazing.

  5. [This] (http://www.valuecityfurniture.com/product/item/accents/furniture/tv-stands-and-media-centers/grenoble-media-credenza-teal/1639347?utm_medium=cpc&gclid=CjwKEAjwsLTJBRCvibaW9bGLtUESJAC4wKw1q_R1JBCXLoWCo0obyzyn2NledF37RbGhZ7qI0Y-BUxoCMMTw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds) is my favorite piece of furniture. I bought it on super duper black friday clearance and I just love it. It's distressed and holds a lot of crap inside of it. It helps give the appearance of adulthood!

  6. I have a much cheaper version of [this] (https://smile.amazon.com/Eye-Vac-EVPRO-Professional-Touchless-Stationary/dp/B0011G20QY/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1496203991&sr=1-1&keywords=electric+dustpan) (also an off brand not bought on amazon) and it's really awesome. It has a setting that senses when you sweep stuff to it and just sucks it up. My room mate is "floored" by it and loves it almost as much as I do!

    shrdbrd you lazy bum, heres some cool stuff.
u/dan_arth · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I roast with a heat gun in a breadmaker. The breadmaker just stirs the beans while all the heat comes from the heat gun. It is very fun. Clean up kinda sucks, but that's life.

I'd say 5/10 of my roasts are amazing. Better than buying from local professional roasters. I recently got a delicious malted chocolate taste from a Burundi. Seriously yummy. I've gotten blueberry and raspberry from Ethiopians. Sweet and delicious coffee.

4/10 are decent. I'm drinking one right as I type, an Ethiopian, that is... interesting... it has a lime flavor. It's definitely dialed in, not sour or bitter. Not particularly sweet. It's good, but not great. It's about as interesting as what I could buy from a local roaster... a little less interesting/delicious though.

1/10 are disasters. Over or under-done, "off-flavored," just something went completely wrong. Sometimes they're still salvagable... I have a VERY dark-roasted bean that I put a couple in as a blend with other Central/South American non-fruity coffees for dessert drinks. I will probably just cold brew it in a couple weeks. Brewed on its own it is just way too dark for me. It's probably a French roast. I've also roasted one so lightly that it turned pale and never really cracked. Tasted like lipton tea. Had to just toss it.

Overall, I highly recommend heat gun method if you're into the idea at all. It's surprisingly easy and fun once you have your set-up.

PS- you need to make sure you have a cooling solution too. I use a datavac that I already had (https://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-ED500P-500-Watt-Electric/dp/B001U899HQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1522274084&sr=8-2&keywords=datavac&dpID=418XjHwHhgL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch)

And I just put the beans in a colander, put a plate on top, and blow the heat off them.

Good luck!

u/hammy-hams · 1 pointr/dogs

Is this the one you use?. I was slightly skeptical of the not so expensive price tag but it's been amazing - super strong suction, picks up everything with one pass, really easy to clean, easy to change attachments, pretty adjustable... Even though I have a husky/GSD mix (Read: I live in fur), I only vacuum once a week or so since I'm not so much of a clean freak and just wait until the color of the carpet changes, so I can't speak for how it would hold up if you're a vacuum every day kinda person, lol.

u/[deleted] · 9 pointsr/AskMen

It's really easy to keep your place clean if you clean 20-30mins a day. Keep a list of tasks to do every day for a month and stick to it.


The above link is amazing. I follow it and am able to clean my whole place easily. Deep cleaning is easy for me as I follow a schedule.

Finally, buy a good vacuum. My condo has only tile/vinyl/hardwood floors.

Thanks to /u/touchmyfuckingcoffee, I bought a Eureka Mighty Mite. The vacuum is amazing. I'm able to vacuum my whole condo properly in 20 mins now.

Buy a good steam mop. The Shark Steam Mop is a good model. You can get them for ~ $50. I steam my tile/hardwood surfaces once a week and steam my walls once every few months.

If you have pets, comb them every day with a steel comb. I have a Furminator. This cuts down shedding everywhere to nothing.

Finally, buy a good HEPA airfilter. The Honeywell 50250 is a good model. My condo gets dusty easily, and then I have to dust everywhere. It sucks. The airfilter gets rid of this for me.

Oh, and buy a slowcooker and prepare frozen meals (breakfast burritos, etc). You will save a lot of money.

u/andgiveayeLL · 2 pointsr/dogs

I'm allergic to both dogs and cats and I have both. This list is more of the "nuclear options" just because of how severe my pet and dust allergies are, but even doing these things on a less extreme scale would probably help:

  1. HEPA filters for the air vents. Change them once per month

  2. I take Zyrtec daily (Costco has by far the best deal. You can buy it with a 5% upcharge if you aren't a member)

  3. In the spring when plants get added to the mix, I add another antihistamine (take Zyrtec in the morning and the second one at night). Usually it's allegra or claritin

  4. Brushing. Happens as near to daily as I can manage on my schedule

  5. Vacuuming. We have a Neato bot vac that runs daily, and we have the dyson pet hair (I actually don't love the Dyson. I think it's poorly built. If money were no object, I'd buy a Miele. If you have a rich family member, I'd throw a Miele on your registry and never look back).

  6. An air purifier. We use this in our bedroom because it's quiet and effective

  7. Bed linens and blankets get washed as often as possible (once a week minimum) because the cats share our bed and our dog loves the blanket I use on the couch. Pillowcases get changed every other night because my asshole cat thinks that is the best place to sleep

  8. If it's that bad, consider allergy shots. They are a huge PITA because of how often you have to go into the doctor to do them, but they work for some people

  9. Exposure/time will actually make a difference in the long run. My pet allergies were at their absolute worst when I was in college and didn't live with a pet. When I would come home and see my mom's cats, it was truly miserable. Now that I've got animals in my own home, it's better than it could be

  10. If you have your own home or are looking for one, hard surface floors are your best friend (wood, tile, concrete, etc). Carpet is awful for holding onto pet dander and hair. We don't own our own place yet, but when we do, the first change I'm making is getting rid of any carpet.

    Edit to add: On the topic of vacuuming, I'm getting this for Christmas and I'm hopeful that it will make vacuuming her spot on the couch easier than hauling the full sized vacuum up there
u/FrankensteinVi · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Hi there!!!


To be honest, my wife and I have been contemplating if we should get this one, because one of our friends has this and she showed us a demonstration. The main difference for me is that the suction strength is greater and the brush design accommodates animal hair. Though most vacuums accommodate all types of hair anyway. Basically my wife and I were impressed. We've agreed that if our current vacuum "expires" we'd get this one. I can vouch for our friend who showed us since she has 2 cats, and boy do they shed A LOT. Hope my recommendation helps! There are other pet vacuums out there that might perform better and the such, but I've observed them to be a bit on the pricier side.

Something fun that I could recommend you to put on your list, would have to be a 15$ dymo label manager :D cause who doesn't want their things organized?! XD if that's doesn't suit your fancy then get the films by studio ghibli :) they're just lovely.

/u/Aerys1 you've been a dirty bird as you need to be punished looool

Ironically the chore I hate the most is vacuuming :/ so noisy and it consumes a lot of electricity 😂😂 but it has to be done lol

u/jwallwalrus26 · 4 pointsr/shiba

I've registered for the Dyson vacuum for this very reason. My parents own it and have 5 long haired cats and hardwood floors, and it has done wonders on hardwood and their furniture. I have friends with cats/dogs who have carpet and also swear by the investment.

The dyson vacuum will take care of all your needs and has so many attachments that do incredibly well. The one I've registered for is so much cheaper on Amazon as well (but it is still spendier than most vacuums): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HNUFRQC?ref_=hit_wr_dt_vr_md_pt

For my upholstry (for now since our current vacuum isn't good) I actually bought this little vacuum and it does incredibly well for both my shiba and kai on both my leather and upholstered couches: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001EYFQ28?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00

Bathing your shiba during shedding season will help with loosening the hairs and make grooming easier.

I also suggest the following brushes that have done wonders for my dogs and have helped keep our apartment clean during shedding seasons.

Kong Zoom Groom - great for top coat shedding predominantly, but does get undercoat as well, just not as well.

Furminantor - Great to get rid of undercoat or loosening it up. Some people say it damages the top coat, I personally have never noticed, but don't overuse it because I do think it can cause balding, but overbrushing in general can cause balding.

Double teeth Undercoat Rake: MASTER at pulling out undercoat without any damage to top coat.

Deshedding tool: This is also a magical tool to getting rid of the undercoat. I sometimes think it works the best of all the mentioned ones for undercoat at least for Kiba, Taro's fur seems to respond better to the furminantor, while Kiba doesn't release as much from that.

Do you have something like a spotbot to help with the upkeep? I got a spotbot pet and how it works is you set it down and it automatically shampoos an 8" circle of carpet. So you push the button then just walk away while it works. Then move it to a new spot. I let mine run while I cook dinner- it beeps when it's time to move it to a new spot.

The best part is that I don't have to buy replacement cleaning solution off the internet- they sell it at my local Meijer, which is super convenient.

The review on Amazon that sold me on it showed pictures of a cone of explosive diarrhea from a dog that wound up on beige carpet and it cleaned it. A redditor on /r/Parenting used it to clean up when her child colored with highlighter all over her light carpeting and I used it when I had an elderly rabbit who couldn't always make it to the litterbox in time.

Amazon will be having all sorts of flash deals on Thanksgiving weekend and the following week. I love shopping for cleaning type appliances on cyber Monday. Most people are so busy looking for TVs and video games that they overlook the kind of presents that could make mom's life easier.


ETA: for anyone who wants to use it for kids, still buy the "pet boost" detergent along with the regular stuff. Little humans are animals, too :P

Here's a list I had written up for another user with similar parameters.


A BIFL vacuum under $200 really can't be considered BIFL, but I think these are some good options (For primarily carpets, all hard floors would be a completely different list.)

I would always recommend buying from a brick and mortar store if possible. Not only do they typically provide better service/support than big box stores and internet retailers, they are essential your warranty center and I think if your paying for warranty you should make sure you have a place to have it taken care of. There are other brands that are not mention here that are available (Cirrus,Evolution, etc.) but I would recommend most the machines below over these companies.

Carpet Pro/Fuller Brush - I have these with commercial accounts that have used them for 9+ years. (To give you an idea the vacuum industry considers 1 year commercial use = 5 years residential use.) With this formula these machines have 45+ years of use on them. *Now these machines are well cared for and maintained which is only going to prolong the life compared to folks that do nothing to maintain their machines.

Hoover - Is not the same company they were 20+ years ago. They are owned by a bigger company who also owns, Dirt Devil, Royal, and Oreck. I think these are the two machines they make that are worth a darn.

[Hoover Tempo - IMHO the best machine Hoover makes these days] (http://www.amazon.com/Hoover-WidePath-Bagged-Upright-U5140900/dp/B0009ONZ8G/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1444932726&sr=1-1&keywords=Hoover+tempo)

Panasonic - Has a number of bagged uprights that work very well



Riccar/Simplicity - I personally have had my Riccar for 6+ years and it would be my recommendation. They have good warranties and they're made in Missouri.

u/SirMildredPierce · 22 pointsr/Augusta

There are going to be a lot of recommendations from people to hire exterminators, but I would recommend getting the equipment and doing it yourself.

One of the issues is that most exterminators come around once a month, but the life cycle of most roaches is half that, so even if you catch one wave of them, the eggs they are carrying are unaffected and will hatch, grow up, and reproduce within a couple of weeks.

There are basically three things you need to get:

Get some Fipronil Gel: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GESOI6 Super cheap online, and 10 times more powerful than what you can get at the local store. This is what the pros use. Put this in places like under cabinets in the kitchen, near water sources, etc. Roaches like to rest in warm places. Anyplace in the apartment that is warm is a likely base for the roaches. This might be lighting fixtures, around the hot water pipes. Worst of all they might be inside your electronics such as your television or computers. They also like tight spaces, spaces they can just barely get into. Loose papers, inside the spines of hardcover books, the spaces between a shelf and the wall, places like that. Look for the roach shit, that's always a sure way to recognize where they have been hanging out.

The Fipronil on it's own is a cheap solution, but it's not the best. To really go to war you have to invest in a good sprayer: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009KM25W You can go for a cheaper one, but I would suggest it's worth the investment. If you solve the problem in the long run, you can easily resell it and recoup most of the cost, though I recommend holding on to it. Remember to let the pressure out when you are done with it, you don't want to ruin the rubber seals on it.

Fill it with Acephate Insecticide: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005662Z6A and spray down the apartment twice a month.

I would also recommend a powerful plugin handheld vacuum such as this: https://www.amazon.com/Eureka-EasyClean-Lightweight-Handheld-71B/dp/B0006HUYGM/ It's powerful enough that it eviscerates the roaches as they get sucked up. A battery operated vacuum is weak enough that they don't die and they just crawl back out.

Lastly, you have to develop the discipline to starve them. They wouldn't be growing in number if they didn't have something to eat. You have to clean *every day*. Everytime you use a dish, immediately wash it after you are done with it. Open up a can of spaghettios? Wash the can out before you throw it away. Only have one trash can in the apartment and put Fipronil in it and keep an eye on it. Don't wait for the bag to be full before you empty it out. Don't leave loose papers around, throw away junk mail immediately. Got a leaky faucet? Get it fixed. Turn off your electronics and unplug them if you aren't using them. Don't leave lights on longer than you need to.

This is *your* war, you have to win it on your own. If you wait around for the apartment manager, or an exterminator to win it for you, you'll be waiting a long time. Why pay someone else to do it when you can use the same exact products they use, and do it yourself.

  1. As I am 4 years sober, the closest I come to wine is my favorite British candy, winegums. They are a necessary school supply because I need to feed my brain during all the late night studying I'll be doing.

  2. Brooms are outdated and rather drap. Instead, I prefer to ride in style on my roomba. How else am I to get from class to class? =]

  3. Hats are not my thing. Don't have the face shape for them. But a helmet for roomba riding would suit me better.

  4. Take me away calgon? Nah. Take me away Cassandra Clare to the wonderful land of Shadowhunters, Demons and Faeries. Anything to escape my studies.

  5. My current loot container is overflowing. Mayhaps a larger one for all of my girlish treasures? You're never fully dressed without a smile and some eyeliner. =p

    Bonus - Superheroes don't wear capes. I'll take mine in the form of a rough around the edges demon hunter who loves pie. And who might also be about 4 inches tall in this case and can easily fit in my pocket for entertainment purposes of course. ;]

2 important things to consider with tile that will make your life quite a bit easier:

  • Do NOT use white or light grout. Go with a darker color, I think it looks nicer (even on white subway tile) and when you clean the junk off the tile it doesn't stain the grout.

  • Use a steamer like this one, the one I own. It comes with a wide squeegee attachment that makes tile cleaning super-easy. It also will clean literally anything, I'm yet to find something it couldn't bring up..and it does it without smelly ass chemicals.

  • The best offense is a good defense. Clean it once a week instead of letting crap build up, it's much easier that way.

  • Make sure you use a good sealer on the grout. The more VOC and EPA warnings the better, seriously. If you can put it on without needing to open a window or feeling dizzy, it's not strong enough.
u/LaymantheShaman · 2 pointsr/germanshepherds

This one! I have had it for 2 years, works great. Easy to clean. I take the whole canister apart every 6 months to clean out all of the hair that gets stuck in there. Has great suction, beater bar does a great job and stays clean. I would definitely recommend it.

Also, it is under $100

u/Thecatcountess · 6 pointsr/blogsnark

I’ve been there! Here are my ideas:

Maybe a glowing led dog collar or a reflective dog vest for night walking? A dog raincoat is nice to have in the rainy months.

Pet beds always seem to need replacing.

I know you said she has a good vacuum, but one year I bought my parents a roomba for pet hair. I also bought them an eye vac because they sweep their kitchen so frequently and I thought it might save them from having to bend over so often.

You could buy ornaments with their names on them or pictures if she doesn’t already have them. You could also consider having pet portraits made by an Etsy artist or from r/artstore & r/hungryartists .

I’ve purchased catnip bubbles after seeing many internet cats enjoying them. However, my old tortie was NOT impressed. She prefers an actual plant that she can murder. You could grab a few plants. Heated cat houses are also a thing.

When all else fails, animal lovers generally seem to appreciate donations in their honor to animal welfare charities. Good luck!

I guess it would be the Penetrating Catalyst. Down in the corner of the front it will have "Part No. 16 PB" http://www.amazon.com/Blaster-16-PB-Penetrating-Catalyst-oz/dp/B000I2079E. This stuff has worked wonders on my Clipper and it didn't take much. I was told and highly recommend that you should do this outside in a place where is plenty of ventilation. I carefully removed all the screws from the covers and replaced them in the chassis so I wouldn't get mixed up later (I tend to lose things). Following mrtopcons warning I wrapped the platen several times with aluminum foil as a mask. I placed a pair of old jeans on the floor of my garage to soak the oily runoff. I worked near the door. I sprayed and worked each type bar free, being careful to protect the platen. After I freed all the bars I let it sit 'til evening and carefully blew out any excess penetrant with air and then wiped off the rest. I let it air out for a few days on my patio table in the morning and back into the garage at night (also to double check the bars). I never had to respray it after the first day. After about 4 days of airing out I brought it inside, reassembled it and now I love my "new" Smith-Corona! This product is fantastic. I just got a '40 Royal KMM last week whose bars were completely immobilized by years of rust (dog hair and God knows what else). I vacuumed it out http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000BSJCLY/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and took it outside to the garage. Within 15 minutes of spraying and patiently working each key (respraying when necessary) I got all the type bars COMPLETELY freed up. I was amazed. Good luck and let me know how it goes!

u/Beard_of_Valor · 3 pointsr/VacuumCleaners

Jumbled mess excused. Reading comprehension I have, Hmm?

Probably meant a U1.

Riccar uprights, noted.

C2 Electro + good idea for uncertain future, check. I watched the video here, I gotta say it seems nice to be able to flick a switch to turn off the roller and switch to hard surfaces. The rugs come with and stay with the unit, so I have a weird need to go from surface to surface or sort of dart and squeeze...

C1 line isn't sealed (HEPA? Filtration?). What I'm hearing is "when the filtration of your bag fails, you will have nothing left in that department and your machine will spew out the particulates it's meant to capture, rather than kicking them around the inside for a bit longer until you change the bag like a decent human person".

The C1 is only $300 on Amazon ($350 for the Limited which I'm guessing has the extra attachments, which I'd spring for). Should I just make out like a bandit? At half the price, I don't think I'd mind buying another vacuum after I settle down more (geographically). What am I "missing out on" from the C2 Electro +? Just the seal? And the remedy is to be mindful of the bags?

The C2 can be had at nearly the same low price (hard wood version), but it doesn't say "electro +" which, I gather from my exhaustive and somewhat confusing delve into the vacuum world refers to the electrobrush, essential for getting dirt out of carpets with a cannister vacuum. Am I on the right track here? Don't skip the electrobrush, full stop?

I don't mind driving 80 minutes one way to buy a vacuum. I mind driving 80 minutes one way to evaluate vacuums and pulling the trigger under pressure and leaving confused and regretful. I was looking forward to driving To The City to look at higher quality vacuums but as I was getting navigation I noticed they're permanently closed. It's down to totally sketchballs shacks with no riccar, miele, or sebo at all. Electrolux, maybe.

C3 is bigger. Okay, I'm a giant 6'4" young man, and not worried about hauling around a little extra. You lost me at door vs pig tail and I really did search for images and pig tails and I can only guess you're referring to the power cord. I guess the C3 goes to the base and not the electrobrush attachment? Something like that?

All in all, I absolutely recognize and accept that I'm going to get what I pay for. I believe there will be drawbacks and removed attachments that make the $300-$350 range vacuums deal breakers. My sister loves her Dyson and I don't mean to dissuade her (and in fact I've used it and thought it was just fine, it's a higher tier model for pets and does the job in their small single story house). I could get a Dyson, but I feel like I would regret not getting a decent vacuum for the same reason you want a decent bed. It's not the most glamorous piece of your house, but dang if a good one doesn't pay dividends for your health and well-being and happiness. With that in mind, it sounds like a C-series is right for me. The C1 sounds like it's more of a cost savings and physically lighter model. The C2 sounds more like an all-rounder, and the C1 is King Kong Big Boy, same power and price point just bigger. Am I anywhere near the mark?

You've been very helpful already, thanks.

I use the Bissell Spotclean Pro, which is portable, and love it.

Here's a thorough comment I posted about it a few weeks ago:

I looked at both of those and decided to go with the Bissell Spot Clean Pro because it comes with a 6" cleaning head a 3" cleaning head. I also ordered the crevice tool attachment for $8.

From what I could tell, the Rug Doctor came with only one cleaning head and it's pretty large. It did not look like it would be useful for the nooks and crannies of cars.

I've had it about 6 months and used it to clean many carpeted car mats, about 6 full car interiors (carpets, mats, cloth seats, NOT headliners) and it's performed admirably.

For a sedan with cloth seats you probably can get away without refilling it. For an SUV, you will have to refill once. It only takes a few minutes.

Here's a 10 year old Honda Pilot I detailed using it:


In addition, it has many household uses. I've cleaned both of our large couches/cushions, stairs, and a couple area rugs.

I've gotten more than its price in use already.

The only minor complaint I'd have is the hose is a bit short, you're going to have to bring it in the car/SUV with you at times. But for its price point, that's to be expected.

Just be sure to clean it out thoroughly after every use. I always fill a bucket with clean warm water when done and just set the cleaning head in there and turn it on until the tank fills up. Then empty everything out to dry.

u/Cinnamonbite · 4 pointsr/AirBnB

Dude...so? EVERYONE should have some way to thoroughly clean their house.

Carpet Cleaner:

High End

Mid Range


I stopped using Resolve on my carpets a few years ago because they changed the formula and I suddenly had bleached out white stains on my carpet and upholstery. Now I have a brush and squirt bottle of ammonia, water, and a drop of Dawn. It cleans everything. It's the same cleaner I use in both my carpet cleaning machines. Yes, I have both Bissel cleaners and they rock.

Why do I use ammonia instead of vinegar? Because you will continue to smell the vinegar for months and months and months every time you put your face near the spot you cleaned. Lay down on your couch? It stinks. Both vinegar and ammonia are grease cutters and I use a vinegar mix in my kitchen, no problem, but on furniture and carpets, I use ammonia.

Also, having fostered hundreds of bottle baby kittens, nursing mommas, and having 5 cats of my own and a house rabbit, that whole thing about cats peeing on carpet you sprayed with ammonia because it smells like cat pee? Wive's tale. It has never ever once happened. Ammonia DOES clean the stench of cat pee out of carpets and furniture though.

Want to freshen up your furniture between guests? Make a spray of fabric softener and water and spritz the couch. Smells great, doesn't hurt the furniture.

If your floor is tile, please buy a mop (yeah, I use ammonia there too). Caramel popcorn is easy to clean. Come back when your guest spills sunscreen all over the floor.

Whats your opinion on this vaccum?

Hoover Tempo WidePath Bagged Upright Vacuum, U5140900

I am not an expert, but it seems to be the "civilian" version of what you find in every single office and hotel. I've had it for 5 years and it works wonderfully.

Just how much better would a $300 vacuum be? Sure, it may not be all shiny and space-age like the one you posted.. but for $80 I find it an amazing buy.

u/st0n3wa1l · 2 pointsr/VacuumCleaners

Here is a good canister that would suit your needs. Its a little over budget but totally worth it. This will do both your barefloors and carpeting. It is a bagged vacuum that will do very well with your pet hair. By the way, no matter how many bags you go through it will still be cheaper than maintance on a bagless vacuum. Bagless vacuums usually have 2 filters in them that you have to replace that each cost much more than a couple packs of bags will. Plus bagless vacuums get dirty and you physically have to wash them every once in a while or you'll just be blowing dust all over your house. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005JTHQXQ/ref=s9_simh_gw_g201_i1_r?ie=UTF8&fpl=fresh&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=desktop-1&pf_rd_r=1Q5M551DY0D0G48XAQ6N&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=2437869742&pf_rd_i=desktop

This vacuum is the most reliable vacuum I know. The only problem is that its only for barefloors and indoor/outdoor carpeting. It has so much suction that will just stick to your regular depth carpting. At this price you could easily pick up another vacuum just to clean your area rug. I have a few school districts, colleges, and commercial cleaning companies using these. They rarely have any problems. http://www.amazon.com/Eureka-Mighty-Canister-Vacuum-3670G/dp/B00002N8CX/ref=sr_1_5?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1458392399&sr=1-5&keywords=barefloor

If you went with the mighty mite you could pick this up as your vacuum for your rug. http://www.amazon.com/Hoover-WidePath-Bagged-Upright-U5140900/dp/B0009ONZ8G/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1458392971&sr=1-1&keywords=hoover+tempo It will do a good job and a bonus to this vacuum is that you'll be able to find the bags and belt anywhere.

*The Hoover Windtunnel Self-Propelled vacuum you linked is a good choice also. It will do your bare floors and your carpeting. However, I need to warn you that it is as heavy as a kirby. So if you have back problems or are going up and down steps a lot its not the vacuum for you.

Just remember to pick up extra bags for whichever one(s) you decide to purchase. Good Luck

u/stizzleomnibus1 · 3 pointsr/VacuumCleaners

We tend to like bagged canister vacs. For what it's worth, a canister vac keeps its weight on the ground and just drags behind you. It's about the same weight if you have to carry it up stairs, but it's in two parts so it's way easier to carry.

Check this guy out.

It's got both a powered carpet head and a hardwood floor head included. It's corded which is way more powerful. It's bagged so you have to empty it far less often. The compact is also pretty light. And it's about $120 less than the dyson.

That said, the total package weight on Amazon is 3x as much. That includes multiple heads and accessories, so it doesn't weigh that much in practice. If you have stairs, this will definitely be harder to move up and down. That said, doing my stairs is the ONLY time I ever even lift my vacuum; it's meant to roll, so you never really have to pick it up unless you're storing it somewhere weird.

Hope that helps!

I use a long-handled Swiffer duster thingie (it traps dust instead of just moving it around and has an extendable handle so I can reach up high or down low (without bending over).

That being said, air filters will make a big difference at least with circulating dust if not pet hair. If you have central air/forced air heat (ducts) make sure there are good filters on the main unit and they are changed regularly. We have electric heat so this isn't an option for us, but since I have dust mite and pet dander allergies, I have a powerful HEPA air filter for the bedroom. For general cleaning, floors are vacuumed with a Dyson (which has lifetime HEPA filters) - including hardwood and tile, we never sweep just vacuum, since it seems faster and better gets all the cat fur (we have 3 cats). We have the Dyson Animal upright, which we got refurbished to save money. I also recently got a DustBuster with an extendable nozzle, which is great for getting dust/debris on surfaces and in between fully vacuuming the rooms. It doesn't have HEPA filters, but does have filters that seem to trap dust well. This is what I have: http://www.amazon.com/DECKER-CHV1410L-Lithium-Cordless-Buster/dp/B006LXOJC0/

You could probably get results that approach professional work like this using a couple machines in conjunction. Obviously pro's tools are going to get things that just won't come out otherwise... but time and determination tends to make up most of the gap.

I'd probably start with the steam to help loosen the really gnarly spots/stains and move on to the extractor to pull all the gunk out.

Combine that with some good upholstery shampoo and some strong degreaser and some elbow grease with a semi-stiff brush and you could get anything out of your interior.

u/the_friendly_dildo · 4 pointsr/ufyh

Get some Clorox Foaming Bleach (you can get it at Walmart or similar) and some magic erasers.

The floor looks lightly textured so you would need to be careful but you can also try some of these.

This looks like serratia_marcescens which is common bathrooms and other wet environments. It is pretty resilient and you will need to keep cleaning the area pretty regularly to kill it off. The best think would probably be to get a steam cleaner if you really need to get this off. This unit is really good.

u/P1ggy · 6 pointsr/Bulldogs

Here is a good list to get you started.

  • Take lots of pictures. They grow up fast.

  • Invest in a carpet cleaner. I picked up this one. http://www.amazon.com/BISSELL-ProHeat-Compact-Multi-Purpose-14259/dp/B002KCMH6Q/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1382137558&sr=8-9&keywords=bissell

  • Be patient, but persistent with potty training. With a good routine and proper rewards the puppys will learn fast. On this note, bulldogs don't bark too much. You may want to train them to ring a bell to be let out. It worked for my guy.

  • Training your pup for 15 minutes is good. Do it every day. Your pup will likely get a lot of mental stimulation out of it, and you will be rewarded in the future.

  • Start a wrinkle cleaning routine early. The wrinkles coming down from the eyes and above the nose tend to get dirty and need to be cleaned often. You don't notice this much when they are young, but later on the dogs start to tear into those wrinkles. You don't want to wait that long to train them to like the cleaning routine.

I have a couple of options, but they cost money. I think I have the same civic as you, mines a '10.

I got one of these (amazon link to a Hoover steamvac carpet cleaner) and it comes with an upholstery attachment. It works very well, but it's hard to shove into corners and crevices. You can get foaming carpet cleaners at the grocery store and use a brush, alternatively, that would get into those spaces. The difficult part then would be drying everything. So then you could use the Hoover to suck out the water as much as you can, since that's what it's designed for.

I also got a shop-vac, a 5.5hp, or maybe it was 4.5, I forget. It's BETTER than the vacuums at car cleaning places, I swear, and it was only 80 bucks. I highly recommend that. And since it's a shop-vac, it can clean up wet stuff, but the hoover has a better attachment for sucking water out of upholstery IMO. Anyway, I couldn't live without the shop-vac now. I clean everything with it, spills, dust, wasp nests, everything.

I bought a Shark on sale about four years ago. It is bagless and came with a stair attachment. It’s really sweet because it comes apart in all different ways so you can push it like regular, you can make it like where the suction part is on a long pole (I don’t know how to describe it), it has various attachments. You can hand wash all the filters so you don’t need to keep buying them, and there’s a ring that allows you to adjust the suction. It works as well now as it did the day I bought it. Highly recommend.

    I got my bissell spot cleaner on sale for $100. I use it for spot cleaning my car about once a month and it does wonders. Everyone always compliments me how great my car looks. Plus you can use it for your house as well. Its honestly fucking amazing. It has saved me hundreds of dollars over the years for apt security deposits.

    As others have mentioned, baking soda can potentially turn into a gooey mess if mixed with certain liquids. I would avoid it for cleaning cars.

Glad to hear it! Steam is awesome for a lot of things. If you want something a little more powerful and versatile than the little handheld ones, check out the Mculloch MC1275. I bought one for my detailing side job (steam cleaners are probably the best tool ever for cleaning car interiors) and I find myself using it all around the house for tons of things. The squeegee in particular is great on glass, and they are killer for grout. The 1275 is still a low-range steamer but it is a big step up from the handheld for not a ton of money (the really nice, high pressure, high temp ones are $700 and up). You can find it at Harbor Freight for less than $100 sometimes, with the 20% off coupon. Happy your project worked out well!

The one in the video with Jay obviously is on the professional price level. The steamer you posted is questioned commonly on this subreddit and from what I have read the determination is it cant hold up for the demands of auto cleaning. I personally have not used it so I cannot say. But I would highly recommend the McCulloch MC1275. It is just over the $100 mark but is a amazing investment just not for cars. The steamer changed the way I wash my hard wood floors, my tile, bathrooms, showers and kitchen not just my car. But its amazing for cars as well. Its strong enough to steam carpets with a microfiber towel wrapped around the end and steam engine bays with tough oils. I think the issue with low end steamers is they simply dont get hot enough which results in not great steam and just hot water leaking out the end. This does not have that issue what so ever. The unit was recommended to me by Larry at AMMO NYC who is a legend on this subreddit. Here is his video on steaming the interior: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JT10-bIAgyk

The Little Green Machine is honestly just a pain in the ass. It doesn't work that well, tends to gunk up and clog with any decent usage, and doesn't have the power to extract all that moisture. It CAN work on full interiors, but I gave up on that a while ago. It's just not big enough or powerful enough, and the heat option barely warms the water. Fabric and carpets will get quite wet and you'll need to air them out with a box fan or two overnight.

That said, I was able to do this to an old Accord:

It just took a LONG time and a LOT of effort.

A professional extractor is the way to go here, but they're really expensive, so not an option unless you're doing a lot of cars.

This is the steamer I have. It's held up nicely and works pretty well: http://www.amazon.com/Wagner-915-500-Watt-On-Demand-Steamer/dp/B003PGQI3Y

u/aliendude5300 · 1 pointr/Android

Maybe. I can see how it would be nice to have for small spills like that, but especially with Dysons, where the price is much higher, I can't justify spending that much money on a machine that would only be good for tiny spills and short cleaning. I think something like this Eureka MightyMite (< $70) is much better for that kind of spill, and way more value for your money. http://www.amazon.com/Eureka-3670G-Mighty-Canister-Vacuum/dp/B00002N8CX Especially since the Dysons are almost always $200+

I clean the interior of my PC about every 2 months with a DataVac. As some people already posted, this can be found here.

Now, for your photo. Yes, crevices of peripherals can get very nasty. I am actually surprised someone didn't post this yet, but Super Clean High Tech Cleaning Compound is the bees knees. I use this stuff all the time.

What it is, is a slime like pliable substance that sticks to small particles. You can roll it over keyboards, mouses, in crevices, over fan grills, etc., and it will pull all the gunk out. I have quite a few packs of these in my desk.

Happy cleaning.

u/the_lonely_road · 2 pointsr/Trucking

This is key. Be proactive instead of reactive to help keep the interior habitable. My truck is my home, I want it clean.

I also use a Eurika hand vac to help keep it clean.


u/Elijahs-Wood · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I wish i could recommend the vacuum we own but it's sadly way too pricey. If you're interested in the type it's a miele canister vacuum, I highly recommend it because they work so well but it's quite pricey. I think the lowest price is $299.

For ones that aren't that high priced you might try out this handheld vacuum to quickly suck out any pet hair that may be on furniture.

If you're looking for a larger vacuum that is upright and a lift-away this one might be useful to you. It's lightweight and comes with pet tools.

If upright vacuums aren't you're thing you might like this canister vacuum. It's compact and appears to have an easy empty dirt tank so you might not need to buy vacuum bags which will save you some money.

You should add this adorable little HP pillow to your wishlist :D

u/bugalou · 2 pointsr/Dogtraining

I have a neutered male Whippet that had these issues. It just takes patients. Never yell or scorn the dog for doing it as it reenforces the behavior. You need to really watch and see what sets him off. For mine, it was for him to be in a situation he was unsure or unfamiliar of. Mine always had signs like tucking his tail or turning his head side ways. That is our queue to back off what we are doing. It is also important to break eye contact once you start seeing those signs. It is also important to establish a regular schedule for going outside to take care of business. If you know new people are coming over, or something out of the norm is going to happen, be sure to take him out first.

If you make an effort to do this, he will gain confidence and the issue will become less and less of an issue. It took roughly a year or so for mine, but now it is rarely a problem. In the mean time get a SpotBot and some BacOut. These will make cleanup for accidents much more simple, and the bacout works wonders removing spots and odors from urination (I have cats too, I buy this stuff by the gallon!). Good luck and don't give up on him!

the shark navigator has worked so well for us on every type of surface. i was pretty grossed out by how well it pulled stuff up lol. it's easy to empty and intuitive to operate, hands down the best vacuum i've ever had. it's a good price right now too, i paid $20 more.

u/nope_nic_tesla · 5 pointsr/Frugal

FYI you can buy full-size carpet cleaners for about $150. If you are renting every couple of months you should just buy one. I have one of these and it works pretty well (I just had a new tenant move into my house a few weeks ago and she actually commented on how clean the carpet was in her room). You can also get carpet cleaner concentrate for pretty cheap. One of those bottles has been enough for me to go over 3 different rooms (one of them I went over twice) as well as a hallway. I still have about half of it left.

u/MoogleMan3 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Ideally, monthly. But a few months apart, like 3 or 4, wouldn't cause any harm either.

For cleaning, I highly recommend a datavac. IMHO, best of the blower style cleaners. Made in the usa with a good motor and washable filter. Been using mine heavily for more than a year now.

u/tehlechkang · 9 pointsr/AutoDetailing

I really like it. I was going to pick up a bissell green machine but after watching reviews, it just looked too flimsy. Found this one without much reviews but decided to give it a chance.

In comparison to other haired breeds, rexes (cornish rex, devon rex, et cetera) shed LESS, but they do still shed. All fur sheds.

As for keeping up with the shedding, I've had my eye on this for awhile, I hear good things. Also, keep on top of grooming so you can dispose of a good amount of the fur in the bin instead of slowly all over the house.

Aside from that, it is just a fact of life cat parents accept that everything will get cat hair on it. Everything. So if you don't want a hairless cat and can't cope with shedding, I'd reconsider how much you want a cat. Saying you want a cat but don't want to deal with dander and hair (but no hairless, please) is like saying you want a bird that doesn't make any noise. It's just part of the package.

u/DeeDoubs · 2 pointsr/hardware

Vacuum cleaners are supposed to be pretty bad for some reasons, but my mom used one when I was a kid and we never had any problems on that front. These days though, I use one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-ED500P-500-Watt-Electric/dp/B001U899HQ


They are a little pricy, but they do a good job and you won't have to deal with replacing canned air.


I'd also recommend a small brush for getting the fans.


EDIT: https://www.amazon.com/Brushes-Portable-Cleaning-Keyboard-Interior/dp/B07CQH78NS


Something like the toothbrush looking one will do good for cleaning fans off. Alternatively you can just use a cheap toothbrush.

u/Jessie_James · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

My best tip to go along with that - if you have dirty carpets, buy a Bissel Little Green Steam Machine.


They are typically $80 on sale, or $100 normally. That machine will make your carpet look brand new. I cannot understate how amazing this machine is. I've used this for ten years on cars that I bought to resell, and it made an amazing difference. Many buyers ask if the carpet is new.

It also gets coffee spills and stains out like you cannot believe. And it works on fabric seats and door panels.

Just be sure you flush it out with clean water (both the holding and fresh tanks) and suck up clean water with the vacuum to clean that out too, and store it open so it dries out.

u/CaptainCoral · 7 pointsr/dogs

This pet hair eraser hand vac. It is amazing. It works so well, and pet hair is loosened by the rubber grips in the end, so it even pulls out pet hair that's threaded into blankets and the backseat. Worth every penny, especially since we have to vacuum our bedding every day when our dog is blowing her coat, and pretty much every few days during the rest of the year, haha.

u/coltks2004 · 40 pointsr/aww

I'm sure you've done some research and heard about how fragile they are as puppies. This is 100% true, my little girl broke her foot the second day we had her (just by running into something).

Potty training is the most difficult part about owning an IG. Be prepared for many accidents in the house (if you have carpet I recommend getting a spot bot. They hate being cold. If you live in a climate where it gets pretty cold in the winter it might be easier to litter box or potty pad train him. No matter what, don't get discouraged about potty training, this is the number one reason IG's end up in shelters.

They make great companions and want nothing more than to cuddle up with you under the blankets. They are very loyal to their owners and can be skittish around strangers. The more you can socialize him the better. They are very smart and highly trainable, it might take a little extra persistence but don't give up.

If you have any specific questions I'd be happy the answer them. My IG is 8 now and I wouldn't trade her for anything.

Invest in a McCulloch Steam Cleaner . Yes it's a bit speedy but WELL worth it in the long run. It have a 'sharp shooter' nozzle that you can get in between seats. Plus you can use it for cleaning vents, buttons, pedals, carpets, whatever else. I run a Detailing business here in South Carolina and my steam cleaner is one of the most valuable tools in my arsenal.

u/scorchnoma · 1 pointr/lyftdrivers

The problem is that no matter what regular cleaning product you use, you still have biological material / bacteria down into the fibers of the fabric and/or carpet. You need to remove that contaminant from the material, otherwise you're just trying to neutralize or cover it up.

Buy a hot water extractor upholstery cleaner, they can be found for about $120-$150. Every time someone does something like that from this point forward is profit, plus if you do this once a month your car will always smell fabulous.

This is what I have:

I also own a proper high pressure steam cleaner for getting harder items out of carpet.


The steam cleaner isn't as important, but it can help. I bought it to remove melted crayons out of two cars with black carpet (I have kids, it happens), worked great.

It is a "Bissel Spotbot Pet" and I love it.

My dog's favorite vomit time is first thing in the morning, so just being able to do a quick wipe with some paper towels, slap the weird carpet device down on the offending spot, press "go", and resume getting ready for work is kind of a lifesaver. It also saved the day when I spilled an entire bright red soda on our brand new light gray couch.

How much are you looking to spend?

Metro makes a few products, Datavac. They are around $70- $100, but they aren't heated. I've got This Guy And it's pretty much a mini leaf-blower. Metal housing, not sure it would handle too many "drops", but it seems reasonably well built.

There are some car detailing products are also heated, like the Metro Master Blaster that produced a lot of heated air. Not as hot as like a heat gun, but they will definitely dry things.

u/niart906 · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

I use my shop vac for spot cleaning in between my seasonal shampoo'ing of the whole interior. I like to use a foaming cleaner like Tuff Stuff because they're cheap and readily available OTC. Agitate with a good stiff bristle brush, and vacuum it up before all of the foam dissipates.

Just a tip, if you have the extra coin, I've been very happy with this handheld shampoo'er from Bissell. Well worth the money. http://www.amazon.com/BISSELL-ProHeat-Compact-Multi-Purpose-14259/dp/B002KCMH6Q/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1409155025&sr=8-15&keywords=carpet+shampoo+bissell

u/5RabbitsInALongCoat · 1 pointr/breakingmom

Okay, so this is a little pricey, but....Nature's Miracle in a Spotbot.

A Spotbot is like if a carpet cleaner fucked a Roomba. You set it down on the mess and press a button and it scrubs a little circle that will look suspiciously cleaner than the rest of your carpet. And it has a handheld attachment if the clean ring/rest of the carpet disparity is bad enough for you to decide to get down on your hands and knees and start scrubbing.

The Spotbot pamphlet will say that you must only use Spotbot brand liquid cleaner. It is lying to you. Pour Nature's Miracle into it and set it free to do its blessed work.

I have a dog with a nervous bladder. Two birthdays ago, I gifted myself a Spotbot. Best. Gift. Ever. Holy shit, I love it.

u/raoulduke12 · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Fuck just a mop. I bought THIS THING and it's amazing. It has a mop attachment, but it also as a nozzle that will blast insanely hot steam into every crevice, corner and cranny you can find. I turned my bathroom grout from brown to white, blasted soap scum off of my shower stall that even bleach wouldn't kill, and I STEAM CLEANED MY FUCKING ENGINE BAY WEARING NOTHING BUT A SPEEDO. It has a wallpaper removing attachment, glass squeegee attachment, and two extension posts to make it as long or as short as you want. It also has a 48 ounce tank that lasts for about an hour straight.

It's also like $80. So you could buy three of them.

I have this steamer, it worked great for removing several rooms of wallpaper before we moved into our house. It even comes with an attachment just for wallpaper removal.

then to remove the bulk of the adhesive I used this

After those two steps I let it dry up over night, and sanded down the walls. I tried just sanding without removing adhesive, but it seemed to gum up the sandpaper pretty quick. Good luck!

Not sure if it's exactly what you mean, since I use dustbuster as a catchall term for hand vac and others may not ... but this thing hasn't done me wrong. https://www.amazon.com/BLACK-DECKER-Dustbuster-Cordless-CHV1410L/dp/B006LXOJC0

(Duh, I just realized dustbuster is literally in the product name so it prob is what you were referring to. Anyhow).

Its best feature is that it picks up kitty litter that doesn't then shake back out when you turn it off. My maintenance guys gunked mine up with drywall dust and it still rinsed clean and works like new. Charges quickly, sits and goes for long times without needing plugging in. I'm really pleased with it.

The only downside is that the slim head that slides out is a little touchy/either doesn't lock in place well or locks too well and is hard to slide, and the little whiskery bit for carpets is kind of eh. But it's a tough little bastard on cat hair and all the crap I spill in my kitchen constantly. Plus SoCal interstate dust through that comes in constantly through the windows. Thumbs up from me.

u/TalkingRaccoon · 1 pointr/Gamingcirclejerk

We have 6 cats. While it does not get that bad actually, I suggest getting a portable carpet cleaner. Also it's expensive but the Rocco & Roxie brand cleaner liquid really works. If they are peeing in a specific spot then puppy pads help.

Also if you are cleaning up lots of barf then either

A) feed less cause they might be gorging

B) get bigger kibble food so they actually have to chew it (one of ours was swallowing the smaller stuff whole) or get "slow bowls"

C) give them hairball medicine (it's basically a fiber supplement so they poop out the hair)

D) comb them frequently (esp if they're long-haired)

E) try different food that agrees with them better.

If you can afford it, I highly recommend cat towers, with places for them to hide/sleep/scratch on a post.

Get a litter box for every floor of your living area. If you have mostly carpeted areas, I highly recommend putting down plastic mats with the spikes on one side (you can buy them in bulk at Home Depot or similar stores), and getting enough so that you avoid getting kitty litter (or kitty accidents) on the carpets.

Have wet food for her at least once a day (a spoonful is enough), and avoid getting patte styles. Cats eat based on texture most of the time, so the chunkier (and meatier) the better. There are dry foods that are specifically limited in carbs (or carb free), which are good for cats since they need a lot of protein.

Leave paper bags and boxes on the floor for her. Cats live places to hide or seek out adventure in.

I highly recommend this carpet cleaner (again if you have carpets) because accidents happen and she will have days when she doesn't feel well/has a hairball to get up. http://www.amazon.com/BISSELL-Spotbot-Handsfree-Technology-33N8A/dp/B003Y3AA2S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1417725395&sr=8-1&keywords=SpotBot+%C2%AE+Pet+Deep+Cleaner

Cat claw trimmers, because those little daggers on her front paws will get sharp and she will probably knead on you/near you. Nail clippers will suffice if they are sharp enough, but be careful when trimming! There's an area in her claw that actually has blood (called the quik(sp?)) that has a terrible time clotting on it's own and it hurts them, so don't cut it.

If you start early enough, you can clicker train your cat. This can provide mental stimulation and increase time you spend together!

Best of luck!

Is the C2 Electro+ a good option for us? Or should we splurge for something like the C3 Cat & Dog? Also, is the SEB228 Electrobrush that comes with the C2 the same as an "electric powerbrush" that I saw you mention in a comment to another user with carpets?

okay so like the comment below 303 is simple and easy. I don"t use it much as its not readily available here in Toronto.

Things i do use:

For the dash board and any plastic inside the car i use:




For the carpets i do 2 thing when i am in a hurry ill use:


Just spray some on the carpet and after a quick vacuum then do a good vacuum job this can take like 30 mins once you get the hang of it.

when i have time i use:


The second method is simple just follow the instructions it came with and this item usually goes on sale there are better ones that keep the water heated.

They also both give the car a nice smell after cleaning i don't have leather seats so i can say much about it.

as for windows there 2 steps i do as well:

I use


Then polish the exterior and where is no tint with


The second step is a bit tedious so if you are not comfortable stick with step 1.

The thing that also really good to have is good clothes for cleaning the more the better Micro fibre cloth's are the best.


and for glass:


After wiping the class with step one and then its dry i usually just follow up with a dry microfiber cloth to pick up any little dirt i left behind.

If i left anything behind let me know ill make a full post once summer comes around with maybe a video of sorts but there is alot of information also to r/autodetailing wiki post and sorry for the format if its not up to standards this is my first long post.

If by 'improved' you mean making it go a lot quicker, then yeah, it has. It's great for carpets and seats, takes stains and spills right out.

Hoover Tempo used to be $40 but now it looks like its $70 on amazon(http://www.amazon.com/Hoover-Widepath-Upright-Vacuum-Bagged/dp/B0009ONZ8G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1371826061&sr=8-1&keywords=hoover+tempo)
Is a standard upright bag vacuum. It has worked well for us. We vacuum like twice week due to our dogs and it gets the job done. Has good suction. Only complaint would be the cord is a little short.

u/Romkslrqusz · 2 pointsr/techsupport

My favorite tool for the task is a DataVac - pretty much a high intensity blower. It’s stronger than canned air by a long shot, and even blasts of that extra ‘sticky’ dust. Kinda pricey though ($80 USD)

Dry Fiber + Friction = static so don’t use the wipes you were talking about. Anything you’re going to be rubbing against components should be lightly saturated in rubbing alcohol.

Canned air works alright, especially if you’ve only got a light amount of dust.

u/AntisocialDiggle · 10 pointsr/TryingForABaby

We went to Target where it was like a freaking perfectly cute pregnancy bump convention was happening. I couldn't walk anywhere without seeing a pregnant woman. Normally, it doesn't effect me but by the time we walked out and passed another walking in I was definitely like this. While there we realized we won't be bringing a baby home to this house. So that was a sucky realization, but at least I don't have to switch rooms around?

I'm consoling myself with buying a carpet cleaner as soon as I tell myself to stop obsessing. I've seriously been debating for like two weeks and gave myself a deadline of this afternoon to make a decision. They are expensive which is why it's taking me forever to choose. It's either going to be a Rug Doctor (can rent from most grocery stores) or the Bissell competitor (can rent from Lowe's. Pretty sure Bissell is winning based off of all my research though. I fucking hate carpet.

u/GrammarFailure · 2 pointsr/AutoDetailing

Do you want to buy a mildly good one and have it forever or rent an amazing one and have it for a weekend? Rugdoctors can be had at a lot of stores for rentals and will do a great job of any carpet/upholstery. Up to you.

The Bissel Little Green is generally the one people go for. You want a heating element to your extractor or it won't open the pores in the carpet and will do a worse job.

u/ChrisF79 · 1 pointr/Pets

My wife and I got this Roomba for pets (that's important) as a wedding gift and to say it's life changing is an understatement. It does an amazing job in corners but as said elsewhere, it won't replace vacuuming. It will however make it feel as though you recently vacuumed and cut down the frequency that you vacuum by a ton. Just be sure to keep the tray empty (it fills up faster than you think) and you'll absolutely love it.

u/vthokies96 · 1 pointr/VacuumCleaners

Thanks for the response.

Can you elaborate on how exactly cat litter damages a vacuum? We just bought a new Sebo vacuum that we're happy with, but since it was quite expensive, we're trying to find a separate machine to use for the litter.

The Whoosh looks nice, but event that's big. We're really looking for something like this: http://www.amazon.com/DECKER-CHV1410L-Lithium-Cordless-Buster/dp/B006LXOJC0

Should we just assume that anything we buy would break down quickly due to the litter and just go with the cheapest option that would be powerful enough to suck up the litter?

u/DeadFable · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

Never heard of the brand till now. Amazon has mixed reviews but it you do buy it and have Amazon Prime you could get it in 2 days.

Most people here have this steamer: Amazon I've had mine for 3 years or so still works great.

u/Illbefinnyoubejake · 7 pointsr/Assistance

No you're fine. You use paper paper towels as much as you can. Then you use a spot cleaner. If you don't have a spot cleaner buy one (Bissell 3624 SpotClean Professional Portable Carpet Cleaner - Corded) and only use water. Then in the meantime get a more stiff brush (Mintcraft 2043 Stiff Bristle Scrub Brush) that won't be used for any other purpose.

Natures Miracle Advanced Stain & Odor, 1 Gallon

If you need it today, make a trip to the store. The reason for using enzyme cleaners is that all other cleaners set in the stains rather than removing the poop from existence. Nature's miracle drops fast when pouring, so don't overlap too much. Instead, clean it multiple times. If you don't dry it with paper towels or a spot cleaner, you might get mold as any liquid sitting under your carpet can do that

Edit, so the ideal workflow is:

  1. Place duck tape on carpet to mark where the poop sort of starts and ends. You'll want this for both when you're cleaning after it's hard to see where it was and also so you don't step on the spot for the next day or so.
  2. Pick it up with dog poop bags that you should have when he goes outside (don't have a shit filled backyard) or walks (don't be an asshole to everyone).
  3. Scrub with paper towels as much as you can. It's like cleaning your ass. Actually it's exactly like it. Now you may learn how toilet paper isn't actually enough and how your gf giving blowjobs would appreciate you bring cleaner than the majority of men.
  4. Take out the trash. This makes airing out easier and saves you from smelling any hint of shit each time you throw something away.
  5. Wash your hands.
  6. Open windows and turn on any nearby fans.
  7. Pour nature's miracle. Start by circling and outline around it. Then spiral in. Wait 20 minutes.
  8. Scrub. If you have a spot cleaner, you can suck up all the cleaner at the same time.
  9. Dry it up all the way (this isn't fully drying it, but no evidence of moisture, at the point, means there's still some moisture left.
  10. Repeat until it's gone.
  11. Wash your hands.

    For the future, make sure your dog is potty trained and also is taken care of appropriately (taken outside enough and also is happy and gets the walks and food they need). If you're a selfish asshole, you'll still do this religiously because you know it's less work than having a dog that's stressed enough to shit inside
u/DariusBieber · 2 pointsr/VacuumCleaners

I would buy the older version, it’s still available for purchase.


And that vacuum is probably the best within the $100 price range. Amazon reviews are notoriously bad in rating vacuums. Most people aren’t aware what actually makes a good machine.

If your budget goes higher but within $200, then the Hoover Windtunnel (bagged) is your best bet.

u/suckinonmytitties · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

since you have a good amount of pets, if your new place has carpets you really need a good steamvac to protect those carpets and keep your house looking new! if you're like me and can't afford that, this folex carpet cleaner spray seriously works like magic. I have two ferrets which sometimes poop in the corner behind my door and I thought it was a lost cause but this brought my carpets back to normal. totally worth it!

u/rinelle · 3 pointsr/AutoDetailing

I feel like these steamers don't produce enough hot steam to make it effective. It'll be shooting hot water more than steam. IMO, there are better cleaning methods than using a subpar steamer.

If you do decide to get a steamer, there are a couple users that get the McCulloch steamers that you can find on Amazon.


u/alsoaperson · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

If you need to cover a larger section of floor, Amazon also sells gym style floor tiles. They're basically the same as the kid ones but a little thicker and without any pattern. They're usually cheaper too.

I also recommend that people add a small hand vac to their registries. I have this one and with a toddler it gets used several times a day (by both of us!).

u/tehRandomAccount · 6 pointsr/PrimeDay2016

I'm also wondering this.

  • It's a bit suspicious given that this model can't be bought anywhere other than amazon.

  • This model only has 10 reviews. It's almost like it was just added to amazon for this sale. The 650 has over 2000 reviews.

  • The thetracktor page for the 614 has very little fluctuation in price, which is a bit suspicious imo. The thetracktor page for the 650 has a lot more regular price movment.

    I'd say that although it's a reasonable deal for a Roomba, I don't think it's as good a deal as they'd like us to believe.

    edit: According to the the Amazon page, the only difference between the 614 and 650 is the scheduling feature. I'd say it's a pretty decent deal. I may end up going for it.

Your better bet would be to go to /r/vacuumcleaners. That being said, their stock recommendation for a good starter vacuum in the $100 range seems to be the Hoover Tempo, currently almost exactly $100 on amazon (though a few days ago it was $84): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0009ONZ8G/

If you go to /r/vacuumcleaners, be prepared to tell them if you have carpet, how thick, if you own pets or smoke, the area of your home, and if you prefer cyclone or bag and canister, handheld, or upright.

With a pet you’ll be thankful for it later, but for the short term it’s a carpet cleaning wetvac. Use it to re-wash the places that you did before and it will clean and suck all the remaining liquid right out.

This machine is a little miracle with a let. My cat barfed brick red cat food all over my daughter’s light gray carpet, and it sat there all day while we were at work. You’d never know it had been there.

I have been using this for a while. It is a pretty great device, a lot of the attachments make cleaning my pc a breeze.

I just don't think it would be worth it though if I ONLY used it for computer dusting. I keep it in the garage and get tons of use out of it for woodworking and cleaning car parts.

If you are only going to use it for computer cleaning. Just stick to compressed air. It would take years to pay you back. And by then it might be out of warranty and broken.

I bought this on amazon and it works great. It has a lot of suction, and also has a spinning brush. The only downsides I have noticed are that it's somewhat loud (mostly the sound of the suction, not the motor) and that it is a bit hard to clean since it's a canister vac.
Edit: it's also not cordless, like the reply above me is talking about. I believe there is a cordless model though.

Dust is nothing really to worry about. You just need to clean it out every now and again. You can use something like this instead of buying those compressed air cans.

I use a pool pump. It might be as powerful as the one I linked but it does the job ok. I may pick up that duster at some point when I can afford too.

First thing I would do is scan for any viruses. Get Malwarebytes and use that as well.

If nothing comes up with those, I would open up your PC and clean the dust out. Preferably with a PC Vac. Something like this.

If none of that works, you'll might want to think about replacing hardware. Maybe getting a new HDD or switching to an SSD if you don't already have one.

This one worked great for us. I'd only use it on carpet. I'd get something like this for wood and tile. Former will toss mabye 5-10% of debris on hard surfaces around rather than suck it up. But the attachments are great and performance on carpet is insane.

The latter I just use for hard surfaces because it's very light and maneuverable and doesn't throw stuff anywhere.

First time I used the former on carpet instead of the previous, old one we had, like a whole canister of rabbit hair (we're rabbit people) I couldn't even tell was in the carpet got sucked right up. Damn near sprouted wood it was so sexy.

u/Kopachris · 30 pointsr/homelab

I worked in a casino for six years, repairing slot machines for two of those. I know a thing or two about cleaning electronics that have been subjected to heavy tobacco smoke.

  1. Power it off, unplug it, ground the chassis. You'll probably want to do this in a garage or outside
  2. Go over it with a shop vac first, then an air compressor to get the hard-to-suck stuff. If you don't have an air compressor, I always used one of these at work and highly recommend them for cleaning your computers and servers. Be sure to get the fans really well--hold them with your finger to keep them from spinning real fast
  3. Pull everything out of it. Everything--power supply, hard drives, even the motherboard. Go over the components and the chassis and use the air compressor some more
  4. If it still needs more cleaning:
  • Medium-heavy degreaser to take out nicotine/tar and spilled drink stains on the metal chassis
  • Simple Green or other all-purpose cleaner diluted to medium strength according to the directions for plastic surfaces and the outside of covered components. Lint-free/microfiber cloth, you know the deal.
  • Circuit boards can be washed with regular soap and water, provided they're thoroughly dried before power is applied again. I always just used an air compressor and paper towels, but I've heard people say you can put them in your oven on its lowest temperature as long as you keep a close eye on them--they can warp if you're not careful. If you need to wash the motherboard, remove the CPU and heatsink. Rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs are good for removing thermal paste; you'll want to remove and replace it any time you separate the heatsink from the chip.
