Review of Eureka AirSpeed ONE Vacuum and Powerful Giveaway!

"Size Isn’t Everything. Power Is."

That's the slogan I could have been saying to myself ever since I was a little girl.  I wasn't a big child; in fact, I wore a size 2T wardrobe well into Kindergarten.  If you ask anyone about me, however, size is rarely brought up.  I work hard to impress despite my size, and while I don't consider myself "powerful" I do aim to feel "empowered."

The same goes for my kids.  They are tiny little forces to be reckoned with.  That's why I wasn't surprised to see that my ornery 2-year-old Marcus had once again dumped out a planter pot full of dirt and vermiculite onto my living room carpet.  The carpet isn't new, but it has to last.  I chose this as the perfect opportunity to give the new Eureka Airspeed One Vacuum I received to sample a try!

First, let me say that I am no stranger to Eureka vacuums.  I have reveiwed them in the past, and I still keep my original Eureka Airspeed at the front of my cleaning closet for most of my vacuuming needs.  I wasn't really sure how this new one would differ; it was, after all, much smaller and lighter.  It also had a much more affordable price tag.

Lime green cord and tiny stature aside, this is one serious machine.  I actually plugged it into the wall, not knowing that someone had depressed the power button.  The vacuum literally took off by itself across the room!

But did it pick up?  I would say so.  See the Before and After shots of the mess my son made.  Cleaner carpet, compliments of the AirSpeed ONE are in the lower pictures.

I have since used this little thing quite a few times since first trying it out.  For one, it's super-light, so my aching pregnant back doesn't complain nearly as much when I use it.  Also, it's easy to dump the dirt out.  The dirt container snaps back into place without trying to figure out diagrams or "what goes where".

I really need a thorough clean before I steam clean my carpets, and this vacuum left little to no dirt or dog hair behind.  I also appreciate that it weighs less than 10 pounds.  If it wasn't for its powerful "get up and go", I'd let the kids use it!  (As it stands, there is no way I'm turning over this powerful little machine to the children.  My curtains would be in danger.)
