dirtdevilgiveaway contest creative



What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever discovered in your vacuum cleaner?  

We’re almost afraid to ask this question! Yes, we’ve all–at one time or another–had to look through the vacuum bag or canister to find something that we accidentally scooped up. But have you ever found something unexpected in there? We’re curious to hear about your experience! Share yours in the Comments field below*. When you do, you’ll be entered for a chance to win one of three Dirt Devil Vac & Dust Corded Sticks awarded monthly.

How The Dirt Devil Dust & Vac Contest Works:

At the end of each month from now until December 2015, we’ll give away one grand prize–one Dirt Devil Vac & Dust Corded Stick along with a London Drugs Gift Certificate worth $25–and 2 secondary prizes of a Vac & Dust Corded stick. You may only enter once per month. Please see full contest rules for details. Good luck!

*Comments may take 24-48 hours to be approved.

The fringe went up into the vacuum and silly little me, with my bare feet, decided I should kick the fringe out. Well the fringe came out but my tow kept going.
