As above really is it too late?

Hegsy Tue 30-Jul-13 18:58:35

Hoover the lawn? Why would you Hoover it? Think up til 9pm is ok anyway

Pancakeflipper Tue 30-Jul-13 18:58:48

Do you mean hover or hoover?

You take cleaning very seriously don't you?

Only if you post a video

Especially if you're also wearing a tinfoil hat

LuisSuarezTeeth England Tue 30-Jul-13 19:00:12

I do mine at 3am so nobody sees.

cheesecheeseplease Tue 30-Jul-13 19:00:20

Our lovely new glass table flew over in the wind on sat night and broke all over the garden sad so yes I mean Hoover unfortunately angry

It's fairly unreasonable to vacuum your lawn at any time of day.

picnicbasketcase Tue 30-Jul-13 19:01:04

Perfectly fine. As long as you do it after polishing the chimney and ironing the front door.

Ericaequites Tue 30-Jul-13 19:01:08

Do you have plastic turf? Hovering would then make sense. They say AstroTurf is more ecofriendly, but I don't see how. If you don't water or fertilize, grass or grass like substance seems best.

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Tue 30-Jul-13 19:01:16

oh, x post grin

won't glass knacker your vacuum cleaner?

My neighbor used to Hoover the lawn for 45 mins twice a week. He'd then drag his ancient tv out the back door and watch Emmerdale at full volume in his garden.

Tee2072 Tue 30-Jul-13 19:01:38

No, it's not too late. It is odd, however.

Perhaps sweep?

Ericaequites Tue 30-Jul-13 19:01:52

I mean Hoovering. Americans vacumn the floor, curtains, under couch cushions etc.

LuisSuarezTeeth England Tue 30-Jul-13 19:02:18

Don't do it you'll bugger the Hoover.
[other brands of suction devices are available]

Pancakeflipper Tue 30-Jul-13 19:02:21

You will have to do that at midnight in case anyone sees you... I doubt hoovering will get all the glass in the grass.

LuisSuarezTeeth England Tue 30-Jul-13 19:07:08

I've hoovered the oven before. And the toaster.

Live life on the edge, me. grin

Capitola Tue 30-Jul-13 19:07:42

I wouldn't as it will probably break your vacuum cleaner.

My cousin has an astro turf lawn and he can vacuum that.

cheesecheeseplease Tue 30-Jul-13 19:08:07

How do I get rid of the glass then if I can't Hoover? Or vacum?

Tee2072 Tue 30-Jul-13 19:15:52

I've vacuumed up glass, although not from the lawn. It's never broken my hoover. Which is actually a Dyson.

Hegsy Tue 30-Jul-13 19:20:46

Not sure. I've hoovered glass before but only little bits. Is it big bits? Could you rake it up then use a small dustpan or something?

LuisSuarezTeeth England Tue 30-Jul-13 19:20:58

I'm thinking the moisture from the lawn and soil would cause problems more than the glass. I see your dilemma though. Could you borrow a garden vac?

cheesecheeseplease Tue 30-Jul-13 19:23:38

No not big bits have got rid of all of those, it's shattered windscreen style. And left lots of little sharp bits sad Hoover is a dyson so may try it.

Wbdn28 Tue 30-Jul-13 20:18:32

Some people will have young children going to sleep at 7pm, so I think it's too late.

selsigfach Tue 30-Jul-13 20:40:28

Not too late, and it's hardly going to be that noisy. Neighbours would be just in complaining about a rave, but a spot of hoovering? I would think my neighbours very odd (and ignore them) if they said I couldn't Hoover lest it waken pfb.

marriedinwhiteisback Tue 30-Jul-13 20:45:57

I used to hoover the patio (sand) with a portable black and decker hoover thing - sandpit. If you've had rain today I wouldn't tbh. Rake the worst off and then hand pick the rest and make sure the dc wear shoes for a few weeks.

HollyBerryBush Tue 30-Jul-13 20:47:08

My next door neighbour has a garden vacuum - he hoovers at 7am on a Sunday morning. This annoys me.
