Read our Dyson V6 Absolute Review and See For Yourself Why it Really Sucked!

I saw a funny Meme the other day that said, “the quickest way to clean your house is have your mother in law call and say she will be over in 10 minutes.” I think we can all remember a time when we have done the mad clean before someone was to visit and see how we really live.

If you were to turn up to my house at any given time without notice I can guarantee that there will be a combination of Lego, food crumbs and some sort of baking goods on my floors. I am a busy mum of two who works full time from home as a food blogger. I go through a bag of flour a week, with a good part of it ending up on the floor. So you can imagine when I was asked to review a Dyson V6 Absolute, I jumped at the chance.

Let me tell you I put the Dyson through its paces! I actually used it every day in different areas of the house and even the car. I may or may not have tried to vacuum the dog < joking, he wouldn’t sit still. >

The wand can be easily removed and tools attached directly to the cyclone pack for cleaning different areas of the house including, cobwebs, stairs and even the car.  Not only does the Dyson clean easily, the unit itself is easy to clean! It’s as simple as pressing the red button and emptying into the bin. NO bags to replace! Awesome!

See in the video below what happened when I vacuumed the carpet with my normal vacuum cleaner and than went over the top with the Dyson V6. See all that extra dirt that my normal vacuum didn’t pick up?   This is because the Dyson V6 digital motor gives the most powerful suction of any cordless vacuum on the market. I think the result speak for themselves… amazing!  I also vacuumed up crumbs, popcorn and even Lego easily { Don’t worry the lego was easy recovered just by pushing the red button and emptying the dust canister. } Simple!

What I loved about the Dyson V6 was the fact that it has a soft cleaner head that is designed to pick up fine dust and small dirt. You can use it on ANY surface and its powerful cleaning won’t leave any scratches on floors but still get them clean.

The fact that the Dyson is cordless is definitely one of my favourite features. I can store it in the pantry next to the broom and it really is ready to go as soon a mess needs cleaning up. It’s so easy to use and glides across surfaces. It also runs for 20 minutes before needing recharging which might not sound like a long time to some, but when you’re cord-free and mobile (and very agile) it’s enough to get the whole house done easily before recharging. It has been an absolute godsend in my kitchen. Just look at how quick it is to use on kitchen spills in the below video.
