That's exactly how my DH vaccums! We have a big formal living room that he does that too! It looks great for about 20 mins. until the kids and dog runs on it. I just can't for the life of me do it. I just vacuum everywhere! LOL
Glad you feel alot better to do that. It takes alot of work! I moped the kitchen the other day only because DS2 threw up all over it. haha
Our carpet is a low pile stuff that is loops, and not plushy, so it doesn't make lines like that. Find with me because although I love it when it's freshly vacuumed, more often than not it will be a mess!
When I as a kid we had orange shag carpet and we use to RAKE it. Oh man, I'm old!
My parents still have the same dark brown shag carpet that was there before we even moved in there 25 years ago. Talk about ewww! They tell people not to take their shoes off when they walk in. haha. Seriously, don't they remember how many times all of us kids threw up on the carpet.
That's really gross Samantha. I was just thinking about how much gross crap must have grown and festered in those carpets. I mean, they didn't have Dysons back then! I bet there were things forever lost in those carpets!
Oooh, I found a pic of my brother and I with our AWESOME orange shag. 1982 girls!
