Cordless Vacuum cleaners

Yeh I know, dead interesting, but going nuts trying to get a spare filter for one that has been given to us by our daughter who has now upgraded to a more expensive one.

It's called a Womow, no idea where it's made, and so far unable to get hold of or find a new 'Hepa' filter for it other than from Amazon where it is currently "unavailable."

Tried cleaning the damn thing but it's not and easy job. 

Any ideas guys?

One filter 'for the use of'😊

I have a 2HP air compressor and it’s brilliant for blowing the dust through these filters. Perhaps your local petrol station freebie air line? Just make sure you do it facing down wind!

@Minivanman   If you have a "motor factors"  ( google it, for your location)... nearby... take the filter to them and ask if they can "match it"... or come somewhere near to it... and see if you can "destruct" the original to glue the replacement on the same holder ...

Re: Cordless Vacuum cleaners

Could probably soak it in a solution of warm water and Vanish Oxy-action stuff, maybe a drop of bleach too, might clean it up, might not, never been a fan of filters like these...

 

There's a reason I use bagged vacuum cleaners, lift the bag out, bin it, pop a new one in, done, even my non-bagged Dirt Devil Handy 150 I've fitted a bag to in order to keep it clean, bags are so handy... 😂

Re: Cordless Vacuum cleaners

I've had bagless cleaners for a few years, all corded and I usually put the filter/s in the washing machine on a quick wash.

As with the Shark I bought recently, none have as good a 'suck' as when brand new but it's more than adequate.

I toyed with the idea of a cordless but ended up with a corded one.

@twocvbloke 

Thanks guys... and others. 😃

Had considered the 'destruct' but not until I've tried others first.

Re: Cordless Vacuum cleaners

Cordless cleaners vs corded is like laptops vs towers , for your money you get much more for the money with a tower / corded cleaner than with  laptop / cordless cleaner.   I remember the very true saying, if its got t*ts, tyres or batteries its gonna be expensive and give you problems.

@wotsup

Quite, which is why we have never bought one.

We have one of those round 'Henry' cleaners which are quite heavy and a real pain to carry up and down the stars - especially at our age. 👴👵

Not big on carpets, more rugs and wood floor with us, so if this cordless one can do the job (which I think it will) then all to the good?

We now have two vacuum cleaners, one for downstairs, one for upstairs.

Much safer than transporting one up & down.

Re: Cordless Vacuum cleaners

Well if you had a cordless one you wouldn't have to worry about that?

Anyways, my place is far too small to swing a real cat, literally, let alone have two full size sucky cleaners cluttering up the place. My Mrs already has her sewing machine paraphernalia up on the landing as it is. 

PS. Please don't tell me you have two cars as well. 😃

Re: Cordless Vacuum cleaners

We do have a cordless vacuum, though it's mostly used for the stairs carpet, and skirting boards, and car !

Nice to see we are not using the generic word 'Hoover'

That's nothing, let's see now;

 

Tristar CXL

Victor Europa 271 Commercial

Sanitaire S667

Sanitaire ZC880

Electrolux C12

Kirby Dual Sanitronic 80

Kirby Tradition

Kirby 1981 Golden Trophy (Rather rare!!)

Kirby Heritage '84

Kirby Heritage II-Legend (the recent acquisition)

Kirby Legend II

Kirby Split Second II (12v job)

Kirby Vacuette (handheld)

Dirt Devil Handy 150 (handheld)

Miele S316i Cat & Dog

Hoover Junior mixed bag of bits (1346-ish)

Oh, and a desktop mini-Henry too

 

No cordless, no bagless (well, I have shake-out bag versions for a few of the Kirbys, but they're still a cloth outer bag), no filters, no problems... 😁

 

And before you ask, I used to collect vacuums until certain elements within the vacuum collector scene rather put me off...
