Yes – it is true! 5 Minutes for Mom is giving away a Dyson Slim Vacuum! And we know you want one!!!
I mean come on – the buzz about the Dyson vacuum cleaner is more like a roar, with housewives all over the world begging to hand over their vacuum bags and enter the new millennium of bag-free vacuuming. (I know – I am one of those women!)
So when Dyson contacted us about their newest release, the Dyson Slim, I nearly stopped breathing with excitement. (Fortunately I didn’t completely black out – I mean good grief – we needed to write back and ensure that we could have a Dyson Slim to giveaway to one of YOU!)
For those of you who might not have heard yet about the Dyson vacuums, here is a quick overview:
Frustrated by the poor suction of his vacuum, inventor James Dyson began to dream about how to solve the problem. He went through 5,000 prototypes, but several years later he produced the Dyson cyclone – the first vacuum cleaner that doesn’t lose suction.
Now Dyson vacuums are everywhere, with a wide selection of different models to perfectly match your family’s needs. There are even models specifically designed to pick up pet hair like the DC07 Animal and the DC17 Animal.
The latest member of the Dyson family is the Dyson Slim. The Slim uses the same technology and sucking power as the other Dyson uprights, but weighing in at only 15 pounds, it is a lightweight version perfect for moms who are tired of toting babies and vacuum cleaners up and down stairs.
The Dyson Slim works for all floor types with a button that turns off the motorized brushbar to protect delicate rugs and bare floors. (I love how well the Dyson Slim works on my hardwood floors and especially on the foam play mats I have in Jackson’s play room.)
The Dyson Slim also comes with the Quick Draw Telescope Release wand that easily allows you to reach up to 16 feet for stairs and high-reach cleaning.
I also love that the Dyson vacuums use a lifetime HEPA filtration system that expels clean air while you vacuum.
Oh and did I mention the steering on this vacuum? It is amazing – you can effortlessly maneuver around tables, chairs, corners etc. It is unbelievable!
