#1 – Blower/ Inflator

Rainbow vacuums can be used to blow of inflate simply by attaching the hose to the exhaust side! This is great for cleaning keyboards or dusting furniture and delicate electronics.

You can also use to clean places like automotive interiors and your engine bay.

Your Rainbow vacuum can also be used to quickly inflate air mattresses, beachballs, and inner tubes.

 #2 – Wet and Dry Pickup

Rainbows are great for picking up pretty much anything – like spilled milk or water.


#3 – Air Purifying Mode

Rainbow vacuums are also great at cleaning air. They have HEPA and water filtration and are one of the best air purifiers on the market.


#4 – Pet Hair and Stair Cleaning

These vacuums are also great for cleaning up pet hair because of their excellent filtration and huge array of attachments.

One of the attachments is the Rainbow Mini Head, which is great for cleaning stairs without having to carry a heavy vacuum up and down.

#5 – Shampooing

With a few additional steps you can transform your Rainbow vacuum into a shampooing machine.  You can clean anything from low pile carpet to high pile carpet, tile, and any other water-safe hard floor surface. You can also easily transition from multiple surfaces to the next without needing to switch attachments.

Need to clean upholstery or auto interiors? There’s a hand held shampooer that is perfect for that!
