Today for works for me Wednesday, things are backwards, get to ask YOU what works. So here is the age old question in the Raine house. Without taking out a second on the house, which vacuum actually works and lasts longer than 6 months? Tell what you have, how often you use it and how long it has lasted. It doesn’t matter if we buy them new or aquire them used, vacuums just do not hold up for this busy family. We use it daily but most of our floors are wood, so it doesn’t have much to vacuum! Just two large area rugs and one bedroom. How do we wear them out so fast?
