   Vacuum Cleaner Bags:      

    A Brief history

Vacuum cleaners have really come a long way and they started out as carpet sweepers and the early versions were bulky, noisy and smelly. Nowadays, we have modern equipment and they come with vacuum cleaner bags. The first vacuum cleaner with paper dust bags appeared in 1956. It replaced the need to empty the fabric vacuum cleaner bags, which proved to be unhygienic. That is because after emptying the bag, you would need to clean it before you could use it again. The following are some of the modern vacuum cleaner bags that you can find in the market today.



First we have the Hoover vacuum cleaner bags, which are easy to install and are made of high quality material. These bags come with multi-gusset for maximum opacity. They also have a rubber membrane that offers dustproof seal. The bottom seam of the bag is double folded, which provides extra strength. The seams are double glued, which provides extra strength to the bag. These bags also come with double wall filtration as well as a dustproof sandwiched collar. Designed to meet and even exceed your expectations, these are high-quality bags and you can when you place your order, each pack will contain ten paper vacuum bags.

We also have the Miele vacuum cleaner bags and they provide nine layers of filtration and retain more fine dust and small particles than a conventional dust bag. These bags are designed with auto-shut mechanism, which automatically closes the dust bag when you open your vacuum cleaner, meaning that you will not become exposed to dirt. The bag folds sideways and it inflates when it is being used. When you use these bags, you can enjoy maximum efficiency and high performance. When you buy your pack, you will find four Vacuum dust bags, a motor filer and a Super AirClean filter.

You can also consider the Qualtex vacuum cleaner bags, which are superior quality microfiber dust bags with a solid retaining collar to ensure that all dust stays in the bag. These bags fit well and they also seal well. You can expect superior performance from these bags and each pack contains twenty bags complete with eight filters. These bags fit many models but there are some customers who complain about finding it hard to remove them from their vacuum or that they end up spilling the contents after removing the bag. However, most people are happy with their purchase, and these vacuum cleaner bags are affordable.




We also have the Oreck vacuum cleaner bags and they are replacement dust bags for the Oreck model of vacuum cleaners. They are hypo-allergenic filter bags and they are easy to install. The bag comes with an automatic closing dust seal that keeps the dust in the bag. These bags come with antimicrobial protection that inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew that can cause odors on the paper. When you place your order, your pack is going to contain eight disposable bags and they will prove to be value for money.

You can also check out the Elextrolux vacuum cleaner bags and they are quality replacement paper dust bags for your Electrolux vacuum cleaner. The good thing about these bags is their sturdy manufacture. However, you might find it hard to fit into your vacuum cleaner. To solve this problem, you might snip a strip off the cardboard slide board in order to get the bag to sit snugly in your machine. The bags are low priced and they will provide you with great service. These bags are also environmentally friendly and they come in a pack of five dust bags.

We also have the First4Spares vacuum cleaner bags for Bosch vacuum cleaners. The manufacturer promises these micro filter bags replace, and are an improvement on the paper bags that you may have used in the past. There is a tab at the top of the plastic collar that you can use to seal the bag when it is full. Each pack comes with five dust bags and one micro filter. You can expect the bag not to leak and it is easy to fit in your machine and remove it when you are done vacuuming. The good thing is that these bags are very affordable.


Reusable bags

Apart from the disposable vacuum cleaner bags, we also have the reusable vacuum cleaner bags, including the Henry Numatic Cloth Vacuum Zip Bag. This bag is washable and reusable and fits a number of vacuum cleaner models, including Henry, Basil, James and Hetty. The bag comes with a zip that allows you to dispose the bag easily. The good thing about this bag is that it has a large capacity and it is easy to fit in your machine. Since the bag is reusable, you can save money because you don’t need to keep buying vacuum cleaner bags.

Vacuum Cleaner Bags – Where to buy?

Remember that the performance of your vacuum cleaner goes down as the vacuum cleaner bags fill up. It is therefore advisable to replace your dust bag when it is two thirds full. Before you buy a dust bag, you should ensure that it is compatible with your vacuum cleaner model. The good thing is that most of these vacuum cleaner bags are compatible with many brands and models.

World’s First Captive Hatching of Rare Dove at the Louisville Zoo

Did You Know..

World’s First Captive Hatchingᅠ
of Rare Dove at the Louisville Zoo

The first white-throated ground dove (Gallicolumba xanthonura) to hatch in captivity did so at the Louisville Zoo on October 17, 2006 after an eighteen day incubation.ᅠ A second dove hatched on December 1, 2006ᅠand is also thriving.

While not officially listed as endangered, the white-throated ground dove is considered a species of concern because it is rare and has a very small range.ᅠ There are only 16 of these birds in captivity.ᅠ The Louisville Zoo leads the effort to conserve this species at the request of the Department of Fish and Wildlife, Saipan, Micronesia, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Pigeon and Dove Taxon Advisory Group.

The babies, called squabs, are being reared in an off-exhibit area.ᅠ The parents have re- occupied the nest which is located in a fig tree (Ficus benjamina)approximately thirty feet above the floor of the Forest Bird Trail Exhibit in the Islands Pavilion.ᅠ Staff views the nest remotely to monitor the birds’ progress.ᅠ

The Zoo’s Bird Department staff under the direction of Curator Gary Michael is currently working with partners at the Memphis and St. Louis zoos to develop a long-term captive management protocol for the white-throated ground dove.ᅠ Michael considers the hatching of this species the crowning achievement of his career.ᅠ He states that “as an aviculturist (one who raises and cares for birds), there is nothing greater than accomplishing the first breeding and successful birth of a species in captivity.”

The Louisville Zoo is a long-standing partner institution in AZA’s Mariana Avian Conservation (MAC) Program.ᅠ The twenty-year-old program aims to support local biologists and other officials in Micronesia in the conservation of their insular avifauna (island birds).ᅠ
