Suck It Up: vans get dirty, quickly - those under-the-seat secret digestives mix with the dried mud on shoes in no time - are these vacuums better performing than a faithful dustpan and brush?
Greetings, fellow vanlifers, digital nomads and crumb conquerors of the car world. Rebecca Wills here, armed with web codes, caffeine-fuelled energy and my latest tech obsession – portable car vacuum cleaners. As a tech enthusiast and veteran vanlifer who’s no stranger to a stray crumb (or five), I certainly understand the need for a lean, mean, cleaning machine in our mobile domains. Let me take you on a journey through the land of 'suck it and see', featuring three laudable dust devils: the 'ThisWorx Car Vacuum Cleaner', the 'Black & Decker PD1200AV-XJ 12V Flexi Car Vacuum Cleaner', and the 'Black + Decker ADV1200 auto portable vacuum cleaner'. Rest assured, I've left no stone unturned, no crevice unexplored and no crumbs behind in putting these contraptions to the test. Hold onto your vac bags, darlings, and venture forth to find out which device sucks the most – in the best possible way, of course.
