As above really is it too late?

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?

LaurieFairyCake Tue 30-Jul-13 18:59:09

Only if you post a video

Especially if you're also wearing a tinfoil hat

I do mine at 3am so nobody sees.

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.

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

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.

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.

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 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 Tue 30-Jul-13 19:07:08

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

Live life on the edge, me. grin

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 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.

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.

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.
