Cleaning my AEG ErgoRapido:
Isn’t it funny how manufacturers seem to forget that if a vacuum cleaner is hard to clean/empty, it’s almost self defeating? How many times have you cursed as you end up with a pile of yucky dust all over the kitchen floor or clouds of something indescribable rising from your bin. Luckily the Ergorapido is quick and easy to clean.
Doing a demo of how to clean a vacuum is actually quite challenging, because of course you CAN’T video into a black bin liner. Well, you can, but my version of that just looked a bit like the night sky on a stormy day – black and grey with no discernible vacuum parts to be cleaned.
I was also just a little challenged because I live alone and I lost the peg that fixes my camera to the little tripod…so every so often the video kind of bobbed into shots of my (not so clean) kitchen floor, the bookshelf, the cats and the bags of groceries I have to one side!
Anyway, luckily the Ergorapido IS easy to clean and the parts are small enough to make it almost possible to do that with one hand…which I did just about manage in the video! The disadvantage of the small dust-box (which does fill up quickly with two cats helping out!) is outweighed in my view by the ease of cleaning.
If you’d like to see a bit more, just watch my quick video. Be warned, it’s not for the faint-hearted – there’s a graphic shot of the evil that my ‘lovely’ cats get up to when I am away for a few days holiday!
