Ok - so you know how when you're using your vacuum to vacuum and dust all the high and low and in between areas? Well - I hadn't cleaned in a few days which isn't like me so today I got my rainbow out and here's what I did......I took the long 14 foot hose and put it on the opposite end and actually blew dusted everything......The table tops, behind the tv where all the cords are, any flat surface that collects dust, then I left the rainbow running hoping it would suck in most of the dust that I just cause to go all airborne........then I ran the PN........Hours later, it looks pretty good............Not as good as if I had suck dusted everything but it was definitely easier.......... What was really cool is those areas that you can never get.......Like under the set top Directv box Unless you lift it or those really tiny areas that are hard to get.......I was kind of surprised that something I figured would end up being half A$$ turned out better than I had originally thought. Just thought I'd share : )

Would not recommend that method to someone who has allergies-but unique to say the the Rainbow's watertrap was filled with not so clear water!

Oh definitely not a recommendation.........Just sharing what I did. I realize someone with allergies would suffer.

This method is the ONLY way I have been able to clean the coils under my fridge, so it was just something silly I tried : )

Yes,fridge condensor coils need to be cleaned with the vac's blower mode or even an air compressor!Nasty,messy job.Hate those blower cooled condensor coils under the fridge!The passive one on the back was better.
