The cord on the average vacuum cleaner is never usually long enough to reach every corner of your home from the one power point. If you have a house larger than a one bedroom one bathroom, then the chances are, you will have to unplug and replug in your power cord as you go about your cleaning. While this may not seem to be an overly inconvenient event, I have to do this at least 3 times in my house. I’m not sure if it’s the bending to reach the plug that bugs me or the walking backwards and forwards to re-plug it in – or both! I knew there had to be an easier way to solve this problem.
I can almost reach!!!
Have you ever just thought that you could reach that last corner of the room with your vacuum cleaner without having to re-plug it into a closer socket? Trying to stretch it out carefully all the while knowing that this is the limit of the cord… but you just have to get that bit of fluff 3cm away… Only to yank it a little too hard and have it come unplugged. Aarrrghh!!! Then the question is, do I plug it closer and return to vacuuming the last section of the room or leave it for next time?… It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve left it for next time.
Save time in your cleaning routine.
Using an extension cord as part of your cleaning schedule, you can simply plug the cord into the centre of your house and easily move from room to room. This helps in getting this dreaded chore done quicker than usual. And who wouldn’t love to save time on their cleaning?
Another time saving chore is using a squeegee in the bathroom – click here for details on this blog post, Bathroom Cleaning Made Easy.
