Vacuum Cleaner Cleaner

Vacuum Cleaners get so dirty....

Vacuum cleaners clean a lot of stuff, especially carpets, drapes, and furniture. But with all that cleaning, they themselves get dusty and dirty on the outside. How about an attachment that you use to clean the vacuum itself?

       this idea is going to give me existentialist nightmares.

       Works for me...it should come with the vacuum cleaner when you buy it.

       So it just doesn't suck as hard as it used to. You open it up to have a look. Ah! There is a grand accumilation of dust that blocks the filter. You are now in dire need of a second vacuum cleaner. Drat!   

       The idea get's my bun but sadly there is no possibility to clean the inside of the vacuum cleaner with this technologie is there? If I knew one I would have posted it. Many times I have thought about it.

       That would be vacuum cleaner sex. Not illegal yet, but only because no one has thought of it until now.

       Surely asexual reproduction of vacuum cleaners won't be frowned upon?

       [zeno] I think you misunderstood - the *outside* of the vacuum gets dusty and needs to be dusted. But there's no rag attachment.

       I vaguely remember a cartoon sequence of a powerful vacuum cleaner ingesting everything in the room, and then disappearing up its own hose. Don't let this happen to you!

       That image of Vince and the vacuum cleaner skipping through a field of flowers together... and then the resulting baby, half vacuum cleaner, half wierd buck-toothed dog. Priceless.

       I had the idea today of a vacuum cleaner cleaning tool cleaning tool. It’s probably too close to this idea. I thought the cleaning tool cleaning tool could get the embedded dust and hair and paper out of the cleaning tools. Recursion should be prevented by designing the cleaning tool cleaning tool such that it can be cleaned by one of the existing cleaning tools. Perhaps, though, there should also be a highly profitable recursive variant, that requires a vacuum cleaner cleaning tool cleaning tool cleaning tool. And so on.

       A good strip down service at 75,000 square meters, at the local workshop might be way to go. 10,000 if the vacuum is used for building work.

       or used vac store that will swap vacuums with you. Your dirty one plus ten bucks for their clean one.
