How To Find Those Disposable Vacuum Cleaner Bags!

Where Can I Find a Bag for my Vacuum Cleaner?

Have you ever tried to find disposable vacuum cleaner or dust bags in your local supermarket or hardware store? Difficult isn't it? And if you do find them, then try to match your obscure model to the limited range bags on the rack.

So what's the alternative? You could buy a new machine and maybe go for a bagless model? The trouble is with bagless machines they are so messy to empty. But there is a simple alternative - Buy your disposable vacuum cleaner bags or dust bags online.

Some things are great to buy online and some things aren’t. Replaceable vacuum cleaner bags are ideal for online shopping. Here's why:

  • Dust bags are very light so shipping costs are minimal and in some cases free
  • The value of disposable bags is relatively low – (You may not want to risk buying high value items such as expensive jewelry on line!)

  • They are so difficult to locate in traditional stores
  • Even if you find them, sorting out the right model is a nightmare
  • The websites are optimised for vacuum bags or dust bags so it is relatively easy to match the machine and model number to the right bags

Romance, Sex and the Vacuum Cleaner

Vacuum cleaners are a little like sheep; innocent contraptions that make some people smile and think of sex.

Like US mother-of-three Joanne Drysdale who invented a sex toy that connects to a vacuum cleaner.

The 49-year-old former toolmaker (I kid you not - this was apparently her trade!) was cleaning her carpets when she came up with the idea for the Vortex.

At the time Joanne, from Utah, had apparently not had sex for 15 years following her divorce.

Joanne is reported to have said, "After several hours, I came up with the prototype." What she did during those several hours is best not thought about.

"The first time I tried it I reached an orgasm within 10 seconds. That was when I knew I was on to something that could potentially bring pleasure to all women."

This surprises me. We men have been led to understand reaching an orgasm in 10 seconds is a BAD thing. What about foreplay?

Apparently the Vortex causes the clitoris (is this word allowed by Google?) to vibrate and flutter in a motion similar to a saxophone reed. For some reason that I can't fathom, this reminds me of the old Beach Boys classic 'Good Vibrations'

Incidentally, if you find your wife has a couple of new vacuum cleaner attachments (coloured mauve) then be warned - she has probably purchased the Vortex and you have a mains-driven rival for your affections!

Meanwhile, Find those Replaceable Bags!

So may be your vacuum cleaner remains pure and celebate and simply cleans the carpets? Perhaps it gets a little dirty and probes dark corners using a crevice tool?

Or is it really naughty and offers you more intimate personal services?

So whatever your relationship with your vacuum cleaner is, whether romance, sex or strictly cleaning only, you still need to locate those 'hard to find' replaceable vacuum cleaner bags.

So get online and find those disposable bags right now!

Well, well, well - never again will I be able to listen to 'Good Vibrations' without a smile - or perhaps a (rather loud) sigh...

Yesterday we had 2 telephone conversations about vacuum cleaners - but not a word about sex. Obviously our lives are totally different from yours!

2patricias - This is all new to me honest - I was doing a little research for this hub and stumbled upon this amazing story by accident and couldn't resist adding it to the article!

A new order of business for the old hoover. hmmm, I may have to get one for my wife as that string under me tongue gets raw sometimes as I still have all me teeth. Does it come in only mauve?

CC - Unfortunately it appears that just as once every Ford was black so the Vortex only comes in light purple. I'm still thinking about your tongue problem. Perhaps you could have some teeth removed?

cgull - Yes Joanne was certainly inspired by her vacuum cleaner. It obviously got her creative juices flowing!
