What people are saying
The Mini Vacuum cleaner by Jisulife has a few customer reviews available on Amazon Canada, but more than 200 on Amazon's U.S. site. The feedback from Amazon shoppers is mostly positive, with many customers calling it a unique and handy tool to keep your workspace clean.
"Super easy to use," one shopper wrote. "It picks up my post snacks debris off of the office desk. It's quiet and very easy to clean. It's a great price and a nifty addition to the office tool chest; an excellent buy."
While customers have noted that the mini vacuum is great for avid crafters who find themselves stuck when it comes to cleaning up excess glitter, there are some downsides to the vacuum. The main complaint among users seems to be the suction power. Shoppers note that it won't clean up heavy messes, but is great for day to day dust and crumbs that can take over your workspace. Another thing to remember is that the circular design makes it tough to navigate corners and tight spaces.
"It's such a cute and amazing product. It cleans all the little messes I make on my desk and I can use it just about anywhere," another shopper wrote. "The attachments and cleaning are the easiest and the actual coolest features of this product. You just put in the batteries and it works either on a localized area or in a general area. The bristles help clean the leftover mess but the only issue I had was reaching corners and certain spots. The shape of this product makes it a little hard to get into those small spaces but it really isn't too much of issue, being able to use it on small scale is fun. Cleanup and setup is actually so easy anyone could do. I highly recommend."
