My dyson animal ball dc15 smells really bad how do I clean it
I've throw my disclaimer up front: This is Dyson's official response.
Do not use detergents, polishes or air fresheners to clean the clear bin. Do not put the clear bin in a dishwasher. Do not immerse the whole cyclone unit in water or pour water into the cyclones. Clean the cyclone shroud with a dry cloth or dry brush to remove lint and dust.
Which I didn't follow and happy I didn't...
I have a Dyson DC15 but if you youtube your model + "complete cleaning" I was able to follow their instructions. And I washed EVERYTHING - the bin, on mine at least breaks down the opaque plastic and clear. Washed all of those. The main brush (cut the hair out) and washed it along with some of the hoses I thought would dry out and the HEPA filter has manufactured instructors.
Just used a light dish soap, warm water and bottle brush - than let it dry for about a week sorta shaking everything when I remembered. Which was just increase the surface area of any remaining water and ensure 100% it was dry before putting it back together. Just felt if it was wet it would collect dust the first use and get dirty quicker.
I liked this video included because he warns of a particular seal I didn't have that would warp if it got wet. So just be aware of what you're doing watch some quality videos and take your time its not difficult but their like puzzles and you'll need some patiences to get it all back together.
