Why are you vacuum-cleaning wrong

There are some precious cleaning tools, I would be dead if I couldn’t use and the vacuum-cleaner is on the top of this list together with the microfiber cloth and the holy mop. And right, they are all purpose and easy to use, efficient and accessible. You don’t need to spend your entire salary to buy one and you don’t need to spend your entire Saturday then to clean with it. So it’s all right. You love them. In fact, everybody loves them, because they are amazing and just awesome.

But how would you react if I tell you that you are simply not using the vacuum-cleaner right, you have been doing it wrong this whole time and thus the results were somehow satisfying, but not the best ones possible at all.

They were completely enough for the mediocre people, but don’t you strive for greatness and perfection? Hell, you should always want more in your life, and this is valid for the cleaning as well. Don’t be somewhere in the middle, avoid these stupid little mistakes next time, and be flawless.   Read More
