We all hate housework, but having the right tools can make your spring cleaning less of a chore and more of a quick task to tick off. One of the most daunting of household necessities is vacuuming.
With a similar look to exponentially more expensive brands, this handheld vacuum is a cheaper alternative to cleaning your house without dinging your walls.
What is it?
The iwoly V600 Vacuum Cleaner has all the same powers as a floor vacuum. This bagless, stick-style vacuum is handheld, and comes with a plug-in cord for maximum charge. It weighs less than five pounds and fits into tricky spaces without tiring your arms.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $70
How does it work?
With a five-metre charge cord, this vacuum’s cyclone HEPA filtration system and dual-position floor brush are product highlights. The honeycomb-style filter is also washable, meaning you can re-use it rather than regularly replacing the piece. It cleans both dust and tougher dirt, keeping hygiene and the ability to clean surfaces of all types as top priorities. The iwoly V600 Vacuum Cleaner also has a silent motor, meaning you can do your vacuuming without disrupting anyone else.
What people are saying
With 4-star rating and more than 800 ratings, this vacuum is loved by many Amazon reviewers.
“Sometimes, a cordless vacuum is not powerful enough for large messes and most corded vacuums are far too bulky. This iwoly vacuum cleaner sits perfectly between those two extremes at a super competitive price. The vacuum itself is light and very easy to maneuver in difficult-to-reach places with a decently long cord. I found the suction was at its best on hardwood or tile floors and had no trouble picking up large crumbs,” reads one review.
“I really like the weight and power of this vacuum. Not too much pressure, but also, enough pressure to do the job,” adds another. “It’s very light weight and I can carry it anywhere around the house. It's awesome to see how my younger cousin (who is about 8) can carry it…I’m very impressed with this product. I would recommend to someone who wants something light and does the job right.”
While reviews are mostly positive, there is room for improvement , according to customers.
“The only problem I had with it is that it doesn't have an attachment on the vacuum's body to hold the extra heads, so when I'm storing it, the extra heads have nowhere to go and I just have to set them aside. Overall, it's a really good vacuum for its price and I'd recommend it to anyone,” says one customer.
“The only drawback is that it doesn’t have strong suction like the more expensive vacuums, but you can't really complain at this price point...Overall this is a very good option for the price,” adds another.
So, is it worth the money? The iwoly v600 Vacuum Cleaner is great for anyone looking for a lightweight, stick vacuum. While reviewers say it performs best on non-carpeted floors, the iwoly is a good vacuum for the price with its various attachments and ability to become a handheld device for cleaning cars and couches.
However, if you live in a heavily-carpeted home, you may need a more heavy duty vacuum with stronger suction to get a satisfying clean.
