Oh, cleansing. It’s a type of issues we have to do to keep away from dwelling in filth, but how anybody stays on prime of it’s past me. Dishes pile up shortly and mud settles at an alarming fee. (Where does all of it come from?!) My dwelling typically appears like a minefield of muddle and particles.
I’m all the time searching for gizmos that make cleansing simpler, quicker, and if doable, extra fulfilling. I wish to shortly do away with that rogue cobweb hanging within the nook and the litter that my cats have so graciously tracked out of their field—with out having to haul heavy gear out of the closet. If the identical software may assist me clear each sq. inch of my house, that’d be perfect. That’s how the Lupe Pure Cordless vacuum (pronounced “loop”) caught my consideration. It’s not simply cute, resembling Eve from Wall-E, but it makes cleansing virtually each crevice a bit simpler.
After a number of weeks of vacuuming my two-bedroom house and the native retailer I work at (extra on that later), I can confidently say I’m enamored with the Lupe. It loses a wire but not any of the ability of a regular upright vacuum.
The cleaner head has a regular rotating brush with bristles such as you’ve seen earlier than, and in entrance of it’s a composite curler that is smooth, virtually like foam. It creates a seal towards the bottom for actually sucking up all the pieces it passes over, together with bigger particles that different vacuums would possibly push out of the way in which. The Lupe picked up discarded cat kibble, litter, and my eternally shedding hair (like with most vacs I’ve tried, hair will get caught within the brush and must be untangled every now and then). Overall, I’ve been very impressed with the way in which it hardly missed something as I went from hardwood to carpet.
There are three energy settings, plus the choice to show off the comb curler. On its lowest setting, the battery lasts round an hour. On the center setting, it’s best to get half-hour, and on max suction energy, simply quarter-hour. I normally left it on the center setting and by no means felt like I used to be going to expire of juice, although it will rely on the dimensions of your area. Charging the battery takes about three and a half hours.
The retailer I work at is massive and sells loads of classic furnishings that is continually shifting backwards and forwards from the warehouse and storefront. That means there is a endless quantity of corners for grime to cover in, and the furnishings is usually dusty and chipping paint. The Lupe was straightforward to maneuver round each crevice and it sucked up all of the junk, together with leaves.
It’s vital to know that the Lupe Pure is not a stick vacuum. It has a much bigger physique the place the battery and 1-liter bin sit, which implies it may well’t get beneath tight areas in addition to a stick vac can. That wasn’t an issue for me, but take into account your furnishings earlier than shopping for. At the shop and at dwelling—wherever I could not get the curler head to wash—I simply used one of many two attachments.
