Regardless of what size your car is, we all want to look it clean and tidy. Undoubtedly, car’s cleanliness is as important as the home, especially when you drive a lot. In this case, you can not use a vacuum cleaner made for home cleaning quite often. However, to make sure that your car’s hygiene is up to the mark, you need a vacuum cleaner that is solely designed for this purpose. With this idea in mind, I recently purchased Eureka Forbes 100 Watt Car Vacuum Cleaner. In this article, I will be reviewing this Portable Forbes Car Clean Vacuum Cleaner.
Why is it necessary to buy a car cleaner
Before reviewing it, I would like to talk a bit about the importance of buying a car cleaner. We all know that the vacuum cleaners we use in our homes are not the one we can use for cars as they are made for intensive cleaning.
A little negligence in its use can cause serious damage to the interior of the car. In addition, there are three other reasons:
- The suction of vacuum cleaners used in homes is very high, which can damage the car.
- Vacuum cleaners used in the home are gigantic in size and it is not possible to keep them in the car, all the time.
- Residential vacuum cleaners need high voltage power and one cannot run it on a car battery for hours.
What I really Liked About Forbes Car Vacuum Cleaner
As always, I had ordered it from Amazon and I have no complaints about the quality of it’s packing. As usual, it was packed in a very good way and the product reached me in absolute conditions.
At first, when I saw it’s packing, I felt like it is an iron.
I never expected a vacuum cleaner in such a compact size.
Branding was nicely done by Forbes Company. In addition to branding, other important information related to the product.
Information like the serial number of the product, and some technical details were nicely printed.
In this box, I got 6 things and all were packed nicely.
In the box, I found a portable vacuum cleaner (with a 3-meter long extension cord), flexible hose pipe, 2-in-1 multipurpose brush, upholstery cleaner, crevice nozzle, warranty card and a guideline manual.
Design and weight
The best thing is that the weight of the vacuum cleaner is 0.85 kilogram, which makes it very portable and mobile; it can be easily taken anywhere.
Powered by the 12V cigarette lighter socket
This forbes car vacuum cleaner is easily powered by the 12V cigarette lighter socket in your car.
You do not need extra power to run it.
You can run it either on ignition or only on a car battery. Even in such a low energy, it produces suction of 100W and it offers a satisfactory cleaning.
Eureka Forbes Car Vacuum Cleaner can prove to be very laborious in cleaning faster and efficiently.
With the help of 3-meter long car charger wire, flexible hose pipe, 2-in-1 multipurpose brush, upholstery cleaner, crevice nozzle, you can clean the car with the best quality.
If you are cleaning car seats, baby car seats, speaker trays, car trunk or dicky, etc., then you can use upholstery cleaner or carpet cleaning brush.
The bristles are very soft. Using them does not harm your vehicle’s expensive car seat.
The best thing about this brush is that it comes with a swivel neck for flexible performance. And, is very easy to remove and replace.
The 2-in-1 multipurpose brush can be used to clean the area around the dashboard, AC duct, speedometer etc.
This brush can be used to clean up the delicate areas (mentioned above).
You can use the same brush to clean the area around ashtray, gearbox, and drink holder near gearbox.
Apart from all this, with the help of the flexible hose pipe and crevice nozzle.
You can easily clean the stubborn corners of the car seat and the areas in between.
Using these two accessories you can easily clean the dirt and dust between the seats, the cushions etc.
As we know, this is a bagless vacuum cleaner, so you don’t need to worry about changing the douche-bags.
To clean it, all you need to do is – release the dust cup.
This can be removed very easily. To remove this, you have to press the white button inwards.
Once done, you need to pull the cap outwards.
As soon as you press it, it will release the dust cap and the bag thereafter (with a purpose to stop the dust going any further).
Although, you don’t need to take this pouch out, yet, in case, you feel like, you can easily take it out.
The handle of Eureka Forbes Car Vacuum Cleaner is of very good quality and offers a good grip.
It fits well in your hand and does not slip at all. It gives a very good grip and offers top-notch cleaning.
The best thing is that if you use Forbes vacuum car cleaner for hours, due to low weight and excellent handle, you will experience any problems and you will be able to clean your car very well.
Things I Disiked About Forbes Car Vacuum Cleaner
Suction is neutralized at some places
I personally feel that at some points the suction of the Eureka Forbes Car Vacuum Cleaner is not so great. In many cases, its suction becomes neutralized. It takes too much effort to clean even small particles of sand or pebbles of soil.
As far as dried spots of milk, juice or other dried food stains are concerned, this vacuum cleaner is ineffective in those cases.
Need a bigger motor for better suction
I believe that to improve the suction of Eureka Forbes Car Vacuum Cleaner, it needs a bigger motor. A 100-watt motor is not capable of producing the required suction, especially if you are using it for a bigger car like XUV.
It is not that its cleaning is not efficient, but due to the small motor, cleaning takes a lot of time and efforts.
My overall experience with Forbes vacuum car cleaner was positive. At the price of INR 1,699.00, it is very difficult to have a car vacuum cleaner better than this. Although I feel a desperate need of improvement in the suction area, yet I feel if you clean your car on regular basis, then you don’t need any additional suction.
