People are ditching their hoovers in a bid to save cash amid the ongoing cost of living crisis.

In place of the power sucking devices, people are swapping to manual tools such as rubber brushes, manual carpet sweepers, and lint removers.

Brand BISSELL reported a 175% increase in sales month on month of their manual carpet sweeper as households get savvy about their spending.

Cleaning influencer ‘Clean with Jen’ gave the vacuum cleaner swaps a test drive and shared her thoughts with her cleaning community.

The classic cleaning appliance doesn’t require an electrical source to efficiently pick up lint, pet hair, crumbs, dirt and more from all floor surfaces.

Jen captioned the clip ‘energy free cleaning hack, don’t mind if I do!’.

In the video, she said: “Right now, I am trying to keep my energy bills as low as possible and I have found the perfect solution for keeping my carpets clean without using any electricity.
