Our review of the Hoover® Cruise™ Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum

It’s that time again. Time to spring into action and give your home a seasonal deep clean. We’ve been talking to Hoover about the best ways to simplify springtime cleaning, and not only did they offer some excellent insights, but they also sent over the new Hoover® Cruise™ Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum for us to try.

It’s light as a feather and brilliantly compact, which means it takes up very little room, no matter where you choose to store it.

Another thing we really liked about Hoover’s new stick vacuum is that it comes fully equipped with all of the tools you need to make daily cleaning pretty much effortless. Our model came equipped with the powered vacuum head and reach wand, plus a soft dusting brush, crevice tool, and a tool for cleaning up pet hair and doing your stairs.

All models of the Hoover Cruise come with a charger, lithium ion battery, and a wall mount. We happen to think that the wall mount is genius for keeping the Hoover Cruise close at hand … particularly if you happen to live with a toddler who likes to decorate the floor with cereal and crackers.

Getting Started

Once our Hoover Cruise received its inaugural charging we were ready to give the house a thorough cleaning.

As we’d mentioned before, this vacuum is nice and light, weighing in at only 4.7 pounds. That made it easy to carry up and down the stairs, to clean the curtains and also to clear out a few cobwebs that must have appeared overnight (they definitely weren’t there before). It was even light enough to hand over to one of the kids, to let them help out (big time mom approval for Hoover on this one).

Time-Saving Versatility

The Hoover Cruise is extremely versatile, which cuts down on the time it takes to clean up a lot of life’s daily messes. Whether you’re dusting the ceiling fans, removing pet hair from the furniture or tidying up after your toddler spills her Goldfish crackers (again), each accessory detaches with the push of a button to be easily swapped out for another.

After tackling everything in the house, from baseboards to the bathroom exhaust fans, we decided to put the Hoover® Cruise™ Cordless Ultra-Light Cordless vacuum to the ultimate mom test –the family van.

The cordless design and long-lasting battery allowed us to go right from the house into the garage without a second thought. We removed the reach wand and switched to handheld mode to tackle two car seats, the floors and cupholders (AKA crumb holders). The crevice tool allowed us to reach every nook and cranny in and around those car seats, and the excellent suction power gobbled up cracker crumbs with no trouble at all. Then, with just the push of a button we were able to easily empty the dirt cup directly into the trash.

The Hoover® Cruise™ Cordless Ultra-Light vacuum is the perfect cleaning tool for spring cleaning or daily cleaning in your home or car!
