Useful tips

Don't overfill it
Keep one eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker to maintain suction.

Wash the filter regularly
Rinse under a cold tap until the water runs clear – you don't need any detergents. Leave to dry fully (at least 24 hours) before refitting.

Safely store tools
Clip accessories onto the vacuum's tool holster so you've always got them to hand.
