http://www.garryvac.com If you inadvertently spill dirt inside the outer vacuum bag (the large black outer vacuum bag with the Garryâ„¢ logo), you can clean it in the following manner. First, remove large debris with your hand. Then, turn the vacuum up side down and gently pat the outer bag to shake the dirt out. It is recommended that you do this outdoors and that you remove all the tools from the bag pockets prior to cleaning the outer bag. The Garryâ„¢ ultra light vacuum has an energy efficient 3.5 amp motor and a superior air path design which allows it to work more efficiently than DysonÂ® and many other upright vacuums. The Garryâ„¢ uses a direct air path design which allows the air to travel a shorter distance with less restriction. The air path is much shorter than traditional upright vacuums with only 1 sharp turn. Due to this superior design, Garryâ„¢ can provide the same performance with 1/3 the power of traditional uprights.
