    This house has always been dusty, but now it is horrible. I can't imagine how much dust is in the duct work. When the furnace runs it blows it everywhere as does the AC.

    Thanks everyone on the compliments. I've got a solar powered fountain pump on the way, so I can have running water. :lol:

    My rainbow is an old one. A new one costs a lot more than I can afford. They last.

    Rainbow vacuums are great, I have a Meile, it was a great vacuum until we did some dry wall work in the house. Even though I manually got rid of most of the dust, the little bit that I sucked up has clogged the motor. Hasn't worked well since.

    I remember those vacuums. The salesman vacuumed the bed and that's all it took fir my mom to fork out the money. Amazing what those things pick up.

    that sounds like a terrible mess you had too. I don't blame you fir never doing that again.

    I had them in big wood brooder boxes that hubby got from work. They were the top & bottom of a huge packing crate. Just put hardware cloth on the tops & we were good to go.
