carpet sweeping with hoky

IMG_5315It really is very hard to walk past a product that is SUCH a beautiful blue colour and has the name ‘Hoky’.

I bought this little carpet sweeper at the Anglesea op shop yesterday for the bargain price of $10.

I have fond carpet sweeping memories. My Nanna who had the most immaculate house in the world loved her carpet sweeper.

And Katrina’s Nanna’s holiday house at McCrae, which is my holiday house benchmark is ONLY cleaned by carpet sweeper.

So maybe this invention will also be MY housekeeping saviour … Although despite the witch logo (which definitely implies some magical powers), I think you do still have to get it out, push it around and empty it … oh the challenges of house cleaning …

Anyway, this carpet sweeper is the most stylish one I have ever seen. It was made in Japan by the Fukuba company, and was patented all over the world. And I can see why. The brush is super, the little rubber trim around the edge stops it bumping into things, it is lightweight and practical to manoeuvre around and it seems to work …

What a great buy. A carpet sweeper was definitely on the ‘back of my mind’ list of things to look out for at the op shop. I reckon it might even give Elise’s beloved hand held Dyson a run for it’s money.
