Best Car Vacuum Cleaner?

Hi all.

Sorry if this completely random post isn't suited here!

Looking to buy a portable vacuum for my Meg - one of those hand held efforts.

Anyone got reccomendations?
My mate said some Black & Decker one is the business......

Over the years I have tried various types of portable vacuum cleaners and the only one that really cleaned cost £3000 - yeh it is specialised and is used in nuclear plants and computer factories and is carried on a back pack. I have found it better to buy a decent extension lead and use a cylinder vacuum with the attachments. The portable ones just tend to move the dirt around and instead of being cleaning the inside of your car it just looks different. Worse still they definitely wont remove dust and fine grit (especialy sand) ingrained in the carpet.

We have a small rechargeable one at home and is only used to clean up crumbs after a meal and it even struggles at that.

Yep - I agree.
Get yourself an extension lead and use the household Dyson or other type cylinder cleaner.
A mains operated cleaner is always going to be better - nothing worse than getting half way through cleaning the car only for the battery to go flat. Worse still is to plug the cleaner in the cigar lighter pug in the car and flaten the car battery!!

Buy yourself a baseball cap - put it on back to front - open all the windows and drive down the motorway like stink and all the cr** along with the nasty odours will disappear. There you go - nice easy solution and Robert's your mammy's brother.
