They’re both among the best cordless vacuum cleaners you can buy, but they take very different approaches to the business of cleaning. I have used both, one at my own home and one at my mum’s.
So, how are they different? Let’s start with our Dyson V11:
Recent Dyson vacs have all sported excellent bin emptying mechanisms and this one’s no exception. The bin itself holds 0.76 litres of dust and debris which may seem small but it’s enough for dusty stair carpet and another big room’s carpet in my house.
It comes with lots of handy attachments for the stairs and webs and skirting boards. It also switches from carpet to hard floor seamlessly. To empty its contents, you simply push down a latch and the outer transparent sleeve jolts down, ejecting everything …
Oven cleaning is one of the most dreaded chores when it comes to blitzing the kitchen.
Cleaning the oven can seem like a complex task. You can choose to do it by using the single-use all-in-one deep cleaning product Oven Pride product or if it’s a bigger hassle than you thought then perhaps using a professional oven cleaning company is a better choice.
But how can you decide which would be easier for you? When it comes down to what you get for a better price, well you can get the Oven Pride for £4.00 at Tesco and other grocery and discount stores.
To get the best results when using Oven Pride to clean your oven, we would recommend leaving the product to work for at least 4 hours.
If it’s convenient, leaving it overnight …
I’ve been looking to kit out a small bathroom for a while now and found that plumbers merchants can do better prices and often products than going to a mainstream bathroom specialist or large DIY outlet.
I started off speaking to Wickes and then headed to B&Q. Wickes has some nice bathroom furniture, toilets, vanities, cupboards and splash walls but was beyond the budget I had planned. And then B&Q had an amazing design service, sadly didn’t have the products I wanted.
I started to look online and I found a fabulous retailer who I won’t name as they’ve got appalling reviews. I called them up and asked them if they genuinely had items in stock and they said yes. And so I decided to do a test of order with them but my credit …
Household energy usage is soaring with everyone at home during the lockdown meaning higher bills are on their way. But anyone who has not switched their energy provider in the last 12 months is likely to be able to make big savings by switching to a better deal.
A comparison site may give you some good information on what options are available, but you still have to choose which new tariff you think is best for you and then make the switch yourself – which is not much fun and takes time.
So, if you want to save but can’t fact the hassle or confusion of trying to do it yourself, go to www.flipper.co.uk and subscribe to their energy auto-switching service.
It’s a simple process and free to sign up. Flipper search the market for …
Do you want to keep garden costs down during spring? It is no wonder, as this time of renewal and regrowth can be a never-ending trip to the garden centre. Therefore, it is natural to want to capture the excitement of this time in your garden, without breaking the bank. Here we offer you some tips that will help you reduce the cost without sacrificing too many of your hopes for your yard.
Buy seeds not plants
The first saving you can make is when you choose to grow from seed. Seeds are always cheaper than plants, and you can even end up with surplus seedlings to share and swap with friends and family. Growing from seed takes some pre-planning and a little more time than buying plants; however, the savings are significant enough to …

On the face of it, major comparison sites provide consumers with all the information they need to quickly determine which company is offering the best value when it comes to utilities like energy and broadband. Here we look at whether these websites really do offer the best deal and if they are all they’re cracked up to be.
Big name providers, such as Confused.com and Compare the Market, only host half the available suppliers, meaning consumers are not being shown the best tariffs available. If we take energy as an example, the average comparison site hosts just 30 suppliers, when there are over 70 operating in the UK.
Comparison site giants give prominence in their search results to firms offering the biggest referral commission, pocketing vast sums of money and misleading consumers in the process …
