James Dyson is a household name these days, famous for his revolutionary designs for vacuums, fans, and now - handhelds. The Dyson team has revolutionized the handheld vacuum industry with the DC31 and DC31 Animal handheld units. The handhelds are powered by the latest evolution of the Dyson digital motor, and truly redefine what it means to vacuum with a handheld. Dyson recently sent me one of their DC31 handheld vacuums to review - and it knocked my socks off.
I already own a Dyson Pet Hair vacuum, and I really enjoy it. This year, however, the folks at Dyson sent me their new DC31 handheld to try. What can I say? I'm amazed!

You might not know it, but used motor oil is already valuable energy resource! A large portion of the used motor oil collected is reprocessed into fuel that is burned in furnaces, turbines, power plants, and manufacturing facilities to provide heat and electricity.
