Having a husband in the military and two little boys, our floors get messy very quickly. I need a vacuum that is going to be easy to use, convenient, and powerful, so I was so excited for the opportunity to try out the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim vacuum, one of their cordless, handheld vacuums.
The Dyson DC35 is only one of the vacuums in their awesome Digital Slim series, so be sure to check out the rest to find one that will meet your specific needs!
What I Love
This Dyson Digital Slim Cordless Vacuum is so handy in so many ways. Of course, this vacuum is handheld. Without the cords, this vacuum can go just about anywhere. There are multiple attachments–the floor tool, combination tool, and crevice tool–as well as a removable wand that can be used to reach further so you do not have to stretch or bend. Sometimes I prefer to use the wand when I vacuum the stairs because it saves my back. The wand is also perfect for “short” people like me who need a little extra help reaching cobwebs on ceilings and dust on fans.
The DC35 comes with a convenient wall mount docking station unit where you can store and charge your Dyson along with a few accessories. The pieces click right into place and are easily detached for use. The great thing about this unit is that I can hang it within my reach but out of my son’s reach because as much as I love his help, I don’t want him getting the vacuum on his own. Thanks to the incredible Lithium-ion battery, this vacuum can be charged in 3.5 hours then used for up to 15 minutes (13 minutes with the floor tool and 6 minutes on maximum power) without losing any of it’s power or charge!
Because it is lightweight–less than 5 lbs-I can really be mobile with this Dyson. It works great on the stairs, in the car, for the couches, and for the little bathrooms on our top floor. In fact, this vacuum is so lightweight that even my 4-year-old can use it! Total win for Mommy. My son has SO much fun using the Dyson Digital Slim and I now have an awesome little housework helper! It also has a low-profile floor tool so it can get underneath most couches and other furniture easily without scraping.
This Dyson cordless vacuum is extremely powerful when it comes to cleaning. The motor is a Dyson Digital motor and it uses Root Cyclone technology that increase air flow to help pick up more dust. Even without the Dual Power Mode MAX button pressed in, it picked up all the little pieces on both the hard and the carpeted flooring. Once I tried with the turbo, it picked up things I didn’t even know were in the carpet. My first reaction of course was, “Eeewwww our carpets were so dirty.” Then I realized that a regular vacuum would not have even picked up half of that dirt and dust!
The picture at the top is how much gunk was vacuumed off of just a few steps and a little bit of spilled dirt and cereal (courtesy of my baby); it’s crazy! Besides the powerful suction, the carbon fiber bristles are stiff to really loosen and pull up dirt that is deep down in the carpet and are anti-static so the dust and dirt can be sucked up rather than kick into the air and settle back down like most vacuum bristles.
One of the best parts about a Dyson is that it is easy to clean and comes with washable, reusable filters! No fussing with bags. No paper filters that soak in the dust and cannot be washed. Simple cleaning means a product that will last longer and have fewer maintenance and repair costs.
What I’m Not Huge On
While my hands are pretty small, I did find the space between the vacuum itself and the handle/trigger to be a bit of a tight squeeze. Once I got used to the feel it was fine, but I still would prefer a little more wiggle room personally.
Overall, this vacuum is amazing. It is sturdy, deep-cleaning, lightweight, and convenient. It has been tested to endure wear and more than average abuse so it can stand up to your everyday use (and my son’s.) There is so much more to say, but you will have to try it for yourself!

Be sure to check out my YouTube review to see for yourself how my first experiences with the Dyson Digital Slim DC35 went! Take note that the vacuum sound in the video is a lot louder than it actually is when you are using it; the camera amplified the sound.
Bonus Tip: Christmas is just around the corner! Watch for deals on this vacuum as it would make an amazing gift! This is also the perfect gift for wedding showers and housewarmings!
