Can you do your whole house on one socket?

(84 Posts)

I discovered todat that I can.



Flip no. Not a chance. It requires multiple uncouplings.

Not quite. About two annoying feet short upstairs.

Do what?


TitsCrossed Fri 06-Jun-14 23:25:46

Nope. I need 6 sockets.

3. 2 if I'm being lazy and don't do the last few feet of the dining room!

I prefer not to uncouple untill the job's done, TAT.

My flex is 8 inches long. I do the extremities by lying flat on the carpet and flinging the hose at full arm stretch.


You so lie.


missknows, but what if there's been MoonSanding going on?

Are we including bedrooms?

Tits lives in Balmoral or summat.

No. But I can do most of the downstairs if I don't do behind the sofa. And the utility room doesn't count as part of the house, does it?

I have a cordless vac so I can do the whole house on no plugs! Ha!

Do bedrooms need doing?

shock and siob

I have never vacuumed the whole house in one session. But thinking about it I would need two for each floor and we have three floors. So another six here.

Thank gawd you only have to it once a month, though, eh?

Yarse. One inhabits one's carstle.

In North Manchester.

My flex is loooooooooooooooong.


No, downstairs is too long by about a metre, but if I could get at the socket behind the computer desk I could. Upstairs I can do from one on the landing. Recently bought a cordless Dyson and it is great not having to plug, unplug and keep stepping over a cable.

Moon sanding? I'm lost now.

HoneyDragon Fri 06-Jun-14 23:33:25

Well, there are skirting board washers on here. And ironers of pillow cases. Thought I'd ask.

If bedrooms are off limits that I can do one plug.

Futilties don't count, naah.
