The partial article listed below made me giggle this morning. One of our very first purchases after getting married was a KIRBY vacuum. It was expensive, very heavy, plus we had to finance part of it!!! When friends/family need a new vacuum….they usually call me. Even co-workers of my husband’s call me when that time comes for them. When I visit other people’s house, yep, I ask what kind of vacuum they have and “do you mind if I try it?” I didn’t really ASK for this position, I just acquired it. I am visual…therefore I vacuum a LOT….I guess you could say it’s a curse that really “sucks”. ~ smile~ Maybe it’s because I prided myself as a youngster in knowing how to SPELL “vacuum”. It is tricky word. I can hear the conversation now when I die: “Wow, she really knew her vacuums…”Regardless of the reason for this honor I’ve been deemed, I’ll take it. It’s very close to being crowned the queen of brooms….but not quite.
“Financially Fit Home: Reliable Kirby vacuum sweeps away most of the competitionReliable Kirby vacuum sweeps away most of the competition!By Ed Perratore, Consumer Reports
Top honors in Consumer Reports brand-repair surveys and stout metal parts designed to be rebuilt instead of replaced could make the high-scoring, $1,350 Kirby Sentria upright the last vacuum you buy.”
(and in case you are wondering…a decent less expensive vacuum I had for a couple of years was the Hoover Windtunnel. I’m now on year two with my Electrolux and I LOVE it! It will even vacuum bare floors and is great if you have indoor pets…I know…enough already, it’s just a vacuum cleaner….)
