Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Dina Fierro

I have two things working against me in the war for cleanliness in my home – two shed-happy kitties and my intense laziness. But Dyson makes it all too easy…tipping the scales in my favor once again with the new Slim, a lightweight (15.7 lbs) powerful upright vacuum that doesn’t clog or lose suction – guaranteed.


Using the brand’s patented Root Cyclone™ technology, which spins dirt and dust out of the airflow at high speeds, this vacuum cleans every room in the house as well as it cleaned the first. After a quick and easy assembly (trust me, if I can do it, you can do it), I tackled my bedroom and living room with a fervor usually reserved for high impact shoe shopping. The Slim picked up literally handfuls of dust, pet hair and general nastiness that my tried and true Hoover had missed just a day earlier. It looks like détente has been reached in my humble abode.
