How to Clean Where No Vacuum Has Gone Before

It’s been several years now since one of my awesome readers told me about an inexpensive, super effective tool I could attach to my vacuum cleaner’s hose that would let me vacuum places no vacuum had ever gone before. Every time I use it, I wonder how I had lived so long without VaccuFlex.

VaccuFlex

That’s it. Just a multi-piece kit that attaches to any vacuum cleaner that has a hose—like my Shark—which then turns it into a vacuum cleaner that can get into even the tiniest crevice, corner or space.

What’s so ingenious about a VaccuFlex kit is that within those seven pieces—which are food-grade so safe to use in the kitchen—is the perfect combination to fit any size vacuum cleaner hose to get into any size space. And this is not like some little battery-powered mini vac. I have all of the power of my Shark behind VaccuFlex.

Kitchen

I use VaccuFlex to vacuum all the crumbs and bits out of my kitchen drawers in a flash, because there is no need to remove flatware, utensils and so forth. And that area around my coffee grinder? That thing is messy and throws fine coffee grinds into cracks, crevices and drawer guides. VaccuFlex to the rescue for that and for reaching under the refrigerator, too.

 

Automobile

To me, car vacs are troublesome. They’re either too wimpy and powerless or the cord is too short; or if cordless, lacking in runtime. Using a full-power vacuum cleaner with VaccuFlex is the way to detail the inside of a car.

See that tiny hose? That can get into the tightest spots to super-suction out all of the stuff that accumulates in car seats, floors, door compartments, center console, and dashboard. This is the way to vacuum tight spaces!

Door and window tracks

What is it about door and window tracks that they simply refuse to get clean? It’s the corners and that area right next to the track that seem absolutely impossible! The solution is to make sure those areas are perfectly dry, then put VaccuFlex on the job. I’ve discovered it’s a lot easier if I loosen the dirt and debris with a good brush first.

 

Clothes dryer

My first clue that things were not quite right with my clothes dryer—suddenly, it was taking forever to get anything dry! I’d check and re-check the lint trap, so that wasn’t the problem. Turns out it was all kinds of lint that had been trapped, behind the trap farther inside the machine. And in the dryer vent line.

My laundry appliances are stacked so pulling the dryer down to get into those areas from the back was not at all practical. And that’s when in desperation I ordered a VaccuFlex kit. I removed the lint trap and stuck that hose all the way into that area. It was amazing. Shark nearly filled itself before I stopped pulling out lint balls. Then I went outdoors to vacuum through the outside of the dryer vent. And that fixed the problem.

Clogged sink

Warning: You must attach VaccuFlex to a wet-dry vacuum to perform this household rescue. Shark vacuums are NOT wet-dry! This Vacmaster is an excellent wet-dry vacuum, which would work well for this.

If you have a hopelessly clogged sink, it’s possible that you can quickly clear that clog with VaccuFlex attached to a wet-dry vacuum. Video demonstration here.

There are so many other ways VaccuFlex has made my life easier—cleaning out air returns, condensate lines, p-traps, and HVAC systems to name a few.

Such a great invention!

    Interesting attachment, there are so many places that you just can’t get to especially with big furniture. I rad another post recently on how to make sure vacuums last and I think this would definitely help out with that! https://www.jeffscdcarpetcleaning.com/make-your-vacuum-last/

    Since we also have a washer/dryer stack, we ordered the VaccuFlex, primarily to clean out the dryer. Unfortunately it did not work well for us, with large chunks of lint constantly clogging the small diameter tube. After much effort, we finally gave up and returned it to Amazon.
