Rug cleaning

Our motorhome had rugs and we carried a vacuum to keep them clean. Our Scamp has a carpet so we bought one of these little crumb/rug sweepers for $5 at a flea market. It works like a charm.

Some of the drug stores carry these at Christmas time. I have one, too, for quick clean up of area rugs. They're great. (Mine has a long handle, though.) In the "old days", they were called carpet sweepers, I think.

This sweeper is really small 2" x 6". We keep it under the lip of the counter.

Brand Name?

I believe I found or least something like that here

I just ordered one, I expect it to arrive before we take off for few months.

Byron,

It also works well in the tow vehicle.

I use a hand vac that has both floor and upholstery attachments and a longer hose. It fits into the front bench storage area. I think it is a Shark.

Cindy, What Norm & Ginny have, and the slightly larger one I have, don't require electricity. And only a slight amount of human power...
My neighbor says Sharks are great, though.

Cindy, We also have a small, powerful electric vacuum did not make the cut for this trip. We simply can not justify the space for it hence our little floor brush.

We're constantly looking for space like this place for our shoes (another Scamp feature). Between us we have 5 pairs, 2 for me and 3 for Ginny. She keeps her rarely used dress pair in some mystical palce.

This little space under the bathroom door serves as an excellent place to keep our shoes. Our little floor sweeper is similarly in a place under the lip of a kitchen counter, out of sight but instantly available.

Merry Christmas to all from Florida.

We keep a small child size broom in the corner of the closet for a clean sweep. Removing the metal edge strip at the door allowes me to remove the carpeting for thorough cleaning on the patio with cleaners [hose and water] and a shopvac.
