A Better Way to Save Energy While Cleaning

I'll admit it, cleaning is not my favorite thing in the world to do. With two kids, my husband and even my cat to clean up after I don't have a lot of energy by the end of the day. I try to do basic cleaning (like dishes and laundry) daily. But find myself saving the big cleaning for once a week, or even until company is coming. Then I definately have to do the cleaning.

And don't even get me started on my car! I don't know when the last time was that I cleaned it out and vacuumed it! Just the other day my daughter was looking for her "mask" for swimming, I found it in the car. And I know it has literally been in there since last summer! I really need to clean out my car. But it's kind of a hassle dragging the big shop vac around which is plugged in, and not a long enough cord. I just don't have the energy!

But now there looks to be a better way to clean and save energy, too.The new Dirt Devil
AccuCharge Stick Vac and Hand Vac uses 70% less energy. Making it the first cordless cleaning technology to earn Energy Star approval.


I could really use this vacuum cleaner! I love the idea of a cordless vacuum cleaner. It would be great not to worry about the cord coming out of the plug, every time I'm vacuuming my rugs. Also when I'm vacuuming my stairs the cordless Hand Vac would really come in handy. And maybe I would clean my car more often, than once a year, if I had the cordless Hand Vac too!
