Nits and lice! Anyone used a vacuum attachment to treat them?

Hello, I watched an Embarrassing Bodies clip where a girl had her head lice treated at a clinic using a vacuum device. I have been looking online and found a couple of attachments that you can buy for your own domestic vacuum cleaner and am tempted to give them a go. Has anyone else used them? Are they any good?

Lice Snatcher is from the UK but quite pricey at over £30, although if it works it'll be worth it!

Lice Suk is sent from Australia but even after postage works out at around half the price.

Are these a miracle product or would we all know about it already if they were? smile

Free market research eh?

I wouldn't personally bother wish a lice hoover but I have a good name for it - Lyson smile

Naicecuppatea - That's a good name, you should register it before someone else does. grin

Not market research, I promise. I just wanted to see if anyone else has used one before I part with my cash. I can't help thinking if they were any good we would all know about it, but would love to hear differently.
