People are seriously WASHING their vacuums…

And Dyson has already released a statement saying that isn’t the greatest idea.

It comes after one woman posted to a Facebook group with a photo of her Dyson disassembled in her bathtub, soaked in water (which it had turned filthy).

She captioned her snap with four “sick” emojis, saying: “That’s the Dyson in for a soak overnight.”https://www.gold1043.com.au/lifestyle/dyson-release-wa…-trend-takes-off/

It led to hundreds of people commenting saying they do the same thing, however, Dyson in the UK has told The Sun “We do not recommend that owners expose their machines to water. Owners should refer to the cleaning instructions in the manual provided with the machine upon purchase.”

“The only component that can be washed is the filter, which should be washed every three months to maintain the machine.”

The British company also said if it was necessary to clean other components to just use a cloth to wipe it down.
