I was vacuuming with my Royal metal a few weeks ago, cleaning up the old house after a move. I noticed that feeling of fine dust in the back of my throat as well as on my skin. There was that slightly stale, musty dust smell in the air, too.

I have one of those Anniversary editions with the maroon bag. It's got the squarish rubber fan cover on the front.

Can you tell me, are the cloth outer bags on these metal Royals any good at filtering? If not, do I have any options?

I was using Envirocare bags, I believe. The Royal outer bag did have a slightly worn spot at the upper corner, where it has a tendency to rub against the wall on your right hand side as you're pushing it. I don't know if that could be the problem.

Any thoughts on Royal outer bag filtration? Thanks!

Try washing it, on any vac the disposable bags won't always capture all the fine dirt, and the cloth bag will gradually get dirtier, so every now any then you need to either vac the cloth bag, or give it a thorough washing... :)
