that is the question of the day. I got duped into letting the Kirby people "clean any two rooms" in our house. I thought I had asked all the right questions on the phone to make sure they weren't going to put on a big presentation and try to sell us anything. But I'll tell you what, I'm singing a different tune post-demo. That Kirby doesn't mess around. We didn't buy one, cuz we cant afford to, but I'm going to start a Kirby savings fund. Does anyone have any experience with the Kirby clean machine? Either for or against?
