Is it okay to vacuum your penis or vagina?

Using the traditional vacuum cleaner on your penis or vagina is contraindicated. The suction of a vacuum cleaner is continuous and too high to use for sexual purposes. A penis pump is recommended because it can control the suction for effective use. When you use a penis pump, you pump it a couple of times at a time and allow the penis to grow, before you continue to pump as you achieve full erection.

How do you hook up a Dirt Devil hose?

The hose attachment location may be different on different models of vacuums. Look for a small 'door' type hatch or lid that is covering an open hole. The hose end may have a notch that will only fit a certain way into the opening. Once you insert the hose, gently tug backwards on it to make sure the hose is attached. If it pulls out, the pressure from the vacuum will also push it off, so make sure it is seated completely within the opening.

To remove, you may need to push a lever on the hose (same notched area as before) to get the notch-mechanism to release the hose.

Are Dyson vacuum cleaners on the NYSE?

No, Dyson isn't on the NYSE. It is privately owned, and James Dyson is the Chief Engineer. The stock available on the London stock exchange DYS is sometimes confused with it, but that stock is the Dyson group and they have absolutely nothing to do with vacuums (bio-fuel cells I believe).

The Difference Between
Vacuum Cleaners

What is the difference between an electric broom and a vacuum cleaner?

Electric brooms are primarily for small areas and clean up jobs as compared to vacuum cleaners that can accommodate larger areas and bigger debris particles. In addition, electric brooms differ from vacuum cleaners because they are primarily stick models and often cordless, whereas vacuum cleaners can be either upright or canister style and they usually need to be plugged into an electrical outlet.

Electric brooms are great for every day use on hard surface areas such as the kitchen or bathroom floors. Vacuum cleaners are better for carpeted areas, and clean more thoroughly than most electric brooms.

Why does your vacuum cleaner bag stink even though it has an odor reducing tablet in the bag which was changed as well as the filter?

Unfortunately, there is a smell because the vacuum motor actually absorbs the odors. This means that even when a new bag is used, and even when you use odor tablets, the smell is still there because it is actually coming from the vacuum and you smell it in the exhaust. There is really not much you can do about it. The same is true of fine dust particles. There is alot of hype about hepa filtration, and micro bags for vacuum cleaners, but the only dust free way to vacuum is with a central vacuum system.

Do a Vacuum cleaner needs a magnet?

If the vacuum cleaner is powered by electricity this is used to turn the electric motor which is needed to create the suction or vacuum. That motor either has permanent magnets inside it, or the current passes through many "turns" of wire to create magnets when you switch the cleaner on. Early experiment in electricity showed that if a wire is moved in a magnetic field some current is created. Similarly, if a magnet is moved near to a wire the same result occurs.

So, yes the cleaner does need a magnet.
