There's no denying that a high-quality vacuum cleaner is a must-have cleaning tool for any home. A powerful vacuum can help keep your home clean and healthy, but they can also be heavy to maneuver around the house.
Stick vacuums are great to have on-hand for small spaces or days when you just need something to tackle life's little messes. While some vacuum systems will cost upwards of $100, with a little searching, you can find a name brand unit, like the Featherweight Lightweight Stick Vacuum from Bissell, on Amazon for less.
Take for example Bissell's Featherweight Lightweight Stick Vacuum, which is currently on sale for just $35.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $35 (originally $40)
What is it?
The Featherweight Lightweight from Bissell is a 3.5-pound stick vacuum that can be converted to a handheld vacuum making it easier than ever to tackle messes around your home. Bissell's bagless vacuum can easily be emptied and features a washable filter.
What people are saying
This simply designed but effective stick vacuum has received high praise from Amazon Canada shoppers online. The Featherweight Lightweight vacuum currently has a 4.4-star rating based on more than 2,700 customer reviews. Shoppers have called the design a powerful gadget to have on hand for cleaning upholstery and for vacuuming pet hair.
"It works so well! It sucks with a very good strength and it doesn't try to eat my carpets!" one Amazon shopper wrote. "Perfect sucking balance! Cat hair, human hair, litter bits and anything else in front of it will be swallowed! It works great on ceramics, carpets, stairs, hardwood floors and everywhere else. It's so light weight and very easy to assemble and take apart. It's easy to take care of and tiny enough to store anywhere. I would give it more stars if I could!"
Some shoppers have noted that Bissell's Featherweight Lightweight shouldn't be used for anyone looking to do a deep clean. Instead, it should be thought of as a substitution for a broom and can easily pick up crumbs and dust that collects on a day to day basis.
"I think the most important thing to keep in mind is what are you going to use the vacuum for," another shopper cautioned. "I bought this vacuum because everything else is so expensive. I have been using a broom until now but the vacuum is pretty, small, and feather light! The suction is not super powerful, which I am guessing is a result of the light weight and the price. However, considering 99 per cent of garbage on my floors is hair and dust, this works just fine. If you are looking to pick up a lot of heavier, wet debris with it (such as cleaning up after very small children), this may not be the product for you. For the price, and how lightweight this is, and considering otherwise I couldn't have afforded a vacuum, I am pleased, even it means I have to vacuum certain spots a few times over."
If you're looking for a vacuum for your small space, dorm or in need of something lightweight for seniors living on their own, the Featherweight Lightweight Stick Vacuum might be for you. At only $35, this handy cleaning tool can help you clean small messes without lugging a heavy vacuum around the house.
