I am a hygiene freak and there is nothing I enjoy more than shopping for household appliances that help me maintain my home in spic and span condition. I spend a lot of time cleaning and I am always looking out for appliances that will reduce the labor input on my part and provide more efficient cleaning. Any upright vacuum would lend you the comfort of preventing back-ache so there was that outright advantage of buying this Hoover Platinum Lightweight Bagged Vacuum in front of me. Not only that it truly is lightweight as claimed by the company and vacuuming with it is as effortless as it can possibly get. You can maneuver this fairly easily and effortlessly over carpets and it provides little friction and prevents you from completely draining your energy. Besides your back and energy reserve, this Hoover Lightweight wonder is also easy on your hearing as it works quietly unlike my last vacuum which you could hear miles away. The bag takes its sweet time to fill up so you do not have to frequently clean it up. It is not at all expensive considering it comes with a canister and multiple cleaning head options to allow you to clean areas your vacuum fails to clean. Maneuverability Lightweight and excellent design.
