what did you learn today?
Well, I learned this a few months ago. The reason there is a little pointy attachment for the vacuum hose is so you don't suck up HUGE things. When my new vacuum lost its suction, I pulled the hose off where it attaches to the vac, and found a Matchbox car! Once I removed it, the vac began working really well again! LOL! So now I put the pointy attachment on unless I am really sure of what I am sucking up with the hose! (I'd rather vacuum under dressers, and in couch creases, than look and see what disgusting ickies are growing there!)
