washing dyson hoses?
« on: December 22, 2016, 04:43:46 AM »
What is the best way to wash a dyson hose? I have heard people say washing machines but im afraid our enourmous GE commercial top loader will tear it apart.  :duh: any tips? Thanks.

Yes, put them in a room with a Dehumidifier, or keep them hot to dry them.

I would just put them back on the vacuum (after shaking till there's hardly any drips out) and just extend the hose and switch the vacuum out, there shoudln't be much water going to the bin except just a stream along the bin, it's safe. Don't vacuum water with a Dyson though.
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.

Airing cupboard for 2 to 3 days dries them out
