There is a war I’ve been waging ever since my girls have gotten older and let their hair grow long. It was bad enough having a wife with long hair. Guys, you know the story – clogged drains, random strands on your clothes and the occasional ‘tumbleweed’ of hair blowing across the bathroom floor. That’s the price we pay for choosing a mate with long locks. But now I have that problem times three!
That’s our drain in 2013. Long hair turns to goop after a while and has to be pulled out of the sink and shower on a regular basis. We even still use our Energizer Headlamp to assist us in the eventual removal of the trap to make sure everything is out of the system. Is this really what little girls are made of?
But what we haven’t been able to solve is this. I’m sure you have something similar in the roller of your vacuum and probably hate getting it out as much as I do. You know the process, turn the vacuum upside down, disassemble the base, remove the roller and the belt that turns it. Now you can actually begin cleaning it. This means getting out the scissors or knife and begin cutting away at the tangled mess, pulling it out one small piece at a time. Then you get the pleasure of reassembling it! What a fun couple of hours…
I recently learned of a new feature being included in a particular model of Eureka vacuums that sounded like it was the perfect option for us. Last year we taught our daughter to vacuum her own room and even had her assemble our new Eureka. And while that model still performs like new today, it suffered from the same issue as our previous one – tangled hair!
The Eureka Brushroll Clean™ with SuctionSeal® promises something that every household has been fighting since the invention of the vacuum cleaner – a self-cleaning brushroll! Simply by turning on the vacuum and depressing the “brushroll clean pedal”, any tangled hairs should get cut away in just a few seconds! This is a feature that they included in their Electrolux line and won rave reviews, so the inclusion in a model that retails for under $200 will probably make this a category leader.
There are a couple other little features that this one includes that even my other Eureka was missing. First is the SuctionSeal® which allows you to raise or lower the head to maximize suction against whatever floor it is that you’re cleaning.
And the retractable cord – I had completely forgotten about having one on a vacuum cleaner. My family had an old canister Electrolux way-back-when that had one of those pull and stop, then pull and release types of cords. It seems all current vacuums just have a long cord that wraps up and down the back of the vacuum. Foolproof, but you have to release the whole cord every time you want to use the machine. The Eureka Brushroll Clean™ with SuctionSeal® has a cord ‘spool’ that uses the pull and lock mechanic and then retracts by hitting a button on top of it! Sometimes older tech really is the best.
But best of all, it is still easy and light enough for our daughters to use. I mean, if they’re going to continue to wear their hair long, the least they can do is clean up after themselves. Now if only they would make a waterproof version that I can attach to the drain! You will find the Eureka Brushroll Clean™ with SuctionSeal® exclusively at Walmart both in-store and online.
