Apparently if you attach this little Smart Tube gizmo to your ordinary vacuum cleaner, it will turn it into a super-dooper cyclone model. Dear old Dyson must be happy. Neat idea though, eh? £20.00.
‘Fit SmartTube between the hose and cleaning head of your conventional vac, and suddenly you’ve got yourself a cyclonic cleaning machine. Cyclone-action brings three big benefits, the first of which is dramatically improved pick-up power. Next, because SmartTube acts as a filter, only negligible amounts of dirt and dust get into the cleaner itself, prolonging the life of the vac and almost eliminating the need to replace bags and filters. Finally, SmartTube also picks up liquid spills, from water to wine to coffee.’
