I am a sweeper, by nature. In my teenage days working at McDonald’s, I swept for hours and hours, keeping the outside and inside floors free of obstacles and dirt. One’s mind wanders when you sweep. It is a relaxing activity, using some of the soft breathing rhythms of Zen meditation. Sometimes I sweep carpet, tile, small nooks or large dance floors.
Since I got my dog, there has been more hair in my life. A good portable vacuum cleaner comes in handy. Today’s blog entry is a Product Review of the SHARK: CORDLESS VACUUM.
Battery life: 15 minutes at a time
Rating: B +
Cost: Moderate: $35 at Home Depot
Nozzles: 2 nozzle options
Review: Your tools ought to work for you. They should function well on demand, be easy to open, close, clean, and be long-lasting. The SHARK Cordless Vacuum has curb appeal. It is good looking and easy to handle. The battery life is not generous, however it recharges within a few hours. There are two nozzles: 1 is pointy (for room corners, or the car); the 2nd is a mini-vacuum rotation wheel (like a vacuum cleaner). Both work okay. The filter is easy to access and dump out. All in all, a decent vacuum cleaner. The main disappointment is battery life.
