New Colors for Miele Uprights

Miele has a vacuum in every color of the rainbow, but each model is color-exclusive. If you want the S7 Miele Salsa, you’re getting a red vacuum. If you want the S5 Miele Capricorn, you’re getting a purple one. Three out of five people I speak with who are interested in a Miele will ask, “Does this come in any other color?” And even though the answer is “no,” Miele proves they’re listening by tweaking their colors a couple times a year. This time around, they’ve changed a couple of the S7 uprights.

First, we have the S7 Miele Twist. Up to now, it was a deep, vibrant Royal Blue color. It’s a very traditional color: it’s in the US flag, most blue ink pens use royal blue, and let’s not forget the Kansas City Royals! But their new color, described as “Sprint Blue,” is a shade lighter and a little pastel. It’s a color most commonly used in sports cars, perfect for a luxury appliance. The Miele Twist’s color is definitely a lot more subdued this time around – which isn’t a bad thing.

New Haan Steam Mops Offer Choices for Any Home

Haan Agile

If you have hardwood floors, you know how dirty they can get – and how quickly, especially if you have two adults, a teenage boy, and a cat at home like I do. Every day brings more tracked-in dirt, rock salt stains, spills, and those weird grimy splotches under the dishwasher (seriously, what is that?). If you’re using a mop and bucket, it’s hard to find the time and patience to keep your floors clean and looking good.

Thankfully, there’s Haan. Haan has developed a wide range of lightweight steam cleaners that use regular tap water to clean and sanitize your floors. The superheated, 212° steam jetting from the vacuum head kills bacteria, loosens hard stains, and can even eliminate odors ingrained in your carpet and upholstery – all without any harsh chemicals! Three of the newest Haan models are now available at Best Vacuum, and whether it’s at home or here in our showroom, I can honestly say that these are the best steam cleaners I’ve used. Take a look, and see which one is right for you. Continue reading
