Disassembly and Cleaning of the Cyclone Assembly from a Dyson DC17 Animal (Vacuum Cleaner)
For Mother's Day last year, I bought Wife a Dyson DC17 Animal vacuum cleaner. While I did considerable research before deciding on the Animal, and I went through considerable planning and effort to get the machine in time for Her day, I didn't score very many "points" with Wife with this marvelous machine. Her reaction was "Oh, a vacuum cleaner - wonderful - you want me to work!". In retrospect, I probably should have stuck to flowers and jewelry instead!
Despite the lukewarm response, the Dyson DC17 Animal really is a wonderful machine, and perhaps the best vacuum cleaner that this family has owned! No, I do not work for Dyson, and I'm not being compensated in any way for writing this article. I simply enjoy the machine, and in particular the lack of dust that spews from virtually every other vacuum cleaner I've ever used. In fact, it's not just me that enjoys the Animal - Kids #1, #2, and #3 all enjoy using the machine, and I attribute this to the lack of dust emitted from the machine and the fact that it seems to maintain its suction throughout the vacuuming task - it's "fun" to use! And since Self and Kids are all having fun doing the vacuuming, Wife never has to - so it really was the perfect Mother's Day gift!
