Excessive compulsive cleaner's dream,
This review is from: Black & Decker CHV1510 Dustbuster 15.6-Volt Cordless Cyclonic Hand Vacuum (Misc.)
An excessive compulsive clean-freak woman had to have had her hand in designing this vac. On a scale of 1-10 it's an 11! Thank you Black and Decker for coming out with the 1st cordless hand vac with the power of a corded one. It is so darn handy yet gets the job done. Need I say more? Yes, I do. The fact that all I have to do to get into my deep crevices or to use the brush is pull out the tools (instead of hunt for them in my closet) right on the nozzle is absolutely ingenious! Oh and that vented, hard plastic sleeve that goes over the washable filter - well, it's just clever. No more crud sticking to the filter to clog things up. t just slides right off!!!! You people at Black and Decker that designed this one deserve a huge raise! Finally, a GREAT hand vac! I love, love, love it! It's perfect. You thought of EVERYTHING. Well, almost everything. Now if you could just put it on automatic pilot to seek out the dust and crud ... Oh, well, you can't have everything. You get the idea.

@ Lacey Johnson: It could be either excessive or obsessive. Excessive would imply that she is excessively compulsive, beyond what even a normally compulsive clean-freak would do. Obsessive means she can't stop herself from being a clean-freak.
Though 'Obsessive Compulsive" disorder (OCD) is what people usually think of, she may not feel she couldn't stop herself -- but she chooses to be as clean as she is, she actually prefers it.
This is not a place to correct people's grammar or spelling or anything like that. This is not English composition; I am grateful for any and all information that anyone has to share. Don't want it impeded for fear of the Amazonian post-critics, who do the whole site an extreme disservice.

It appears that the woman has SIX kids! The fact that she has time to clean her house at all is a huge credit to her! (This is coming from a mom of four.) Kudos to her for just being able to TYPE straight! =^)

I totally agree with you Justitia. Using Amazon as a platform for correcting English is just plain pathetic. LJ just couldn't read in between the lines and focus on the great review of this product. Because of the review I now want to get one.

bravo for this insight. how did she find the time and inclination to do this review is amazing.
she must have a lot of help but still cleans herself? maybe?
as for grammar and vocabulary,it is significant if you cannot understand the words,but it's not a test,either.
Using the word "freak" in this context could be insulting to some.It isn't freakish to clean,though some people are cleaning where there is nothing dirty and have a problem.If you have 6 kids,I doubt if that's your problem.
Justitia says it isn't english composition. well,it's not psych 101,either.
Let those without sin cast the first stone.

I agree with Mommywithsix 110%, this vac has everything i could want in a hand vac for under $50! I'm a single female with three cats in the house between me and my roommate so we have lots of cat litter and cat hair to clean up which was what this vac was mainly purchased for so as you can see this vac is for families/kids and multiple pets! We've had this vac for a month and it still sucks just as strong as the day we took it out of the box! And trust me kitty litter does a number on hand vac filters, I've gone through multiple hand vacs over the years due to my cats' messes.
My favorite feature? a tie between the brush right on the nozzle so i never lose it (or my cats don't take it and hide it like they do with everything ) and the washable sleeve/cover, it's genius!
Added bonus: the charging plug going straight into the vac not the wall mount piece is so helpful! We don't even use the wall mount piece, it just sits on the floor and we plug it in.
