A tale of two… vacuums

A tale of two… vacuums

Last night I used my trusty, handy-dandy Shark Rocket vacuum to get the crumbs off the floor under the kitchen table (I’m too lazy to sweep).

I wasn’t paying too close attention, as it must have sucked up some pieces too large to get through the pipe and into the reservoir, leaving a block.

The sound of the vacuum slowly got louder and higher pitched, but I didn’t pay any mind, just mindlessly going about the task of cleaning.

Suddenly, the “sucking” sound of the motor disappeared, and only the brush roll continued.

The stark contrast between the motor and the quiet little brush roll finally caught my attention.

I flipped the switch on and off–the lights still worked. But I couldn’t get the motor to come back.

I pulled it all apart, searching for the blockage, clearing out the clogged pipe.

That’s when I realized this little vacuum had a filter!

Vacuum #2

I own another Shark vacuum, and this big one I use for the carpets and with the attachments.

I’ve had it for five years and always take the time to shake off and wash the sponge filter in the sink, leaving it out to dry before using it the next time.

I’d read the instruction manual and took care of this bigger one the right way.

But the little Rocket I’ve only had for one year.

I didn’t bother to read its instructions because I thought I knew what to do.

I never even realized it had a filter, too.

I never took the time to clean the filter.

By the time I realized this, it was thick with filth and my neglect had caused the motor to overheat.

I really didn’t want to have to replace this new, only 1-year old vacuum, but by not paying attention, not taking precautions, I nearly had to.

Luckily I checked and this morning it worked again. Clean filters and time to cool down brought it back to life.

📖 Prednisone Parable📖

Prednisone should come with an owner’s manual. It does come with an incomprehensible list of side effects, but not in any helpful order.

That’s why I created the Prednisone Checklist.

It keeps your prednisone “motor” from overheating.

Others inadvertently neglect aspects of their health affected by prednisone because they don’t know any better.

But you do, since you took the step of getting the Prednisone Checklist.

You know the steps to take to keep your body as healthy as possible while taking prednisone.

Prednisone isn’t a vacuum, so it doesn’t clog up your body’s filters.

But it does act in a similar way to suck the nutrients from your body.

Don’t Let Prednisone Suck You Dry

That’s why I created Nutranize® Zone™.

It fills back up your tank of nutrients that prednisone steals.

I don’t want you to overheat or become depleted like my poor neglected vacuum.

I want you to feel whole, finally like yourself again.

Buy Nutranize Zone.
