Upright Vacuum Cleaner....

A vacuum cleaner, commonly referred to as a "vacuum," is a device that uses an air pump to create a partial vacuum to suck up dust and dirt, usually from floors, and optionally from other surfaces as well. The dirt is collected by either a dustbag or a cyclone for later disposal. Vacuum cleaners, which are used in homes as well as in industry, exist in a variety of sizes and models: small battery-operated hand-held devices, domestic central vacuum cleaners, huge stationary industrial appliances that can handle several hundred litres of dust before being emptied, and self-propelled vacuum trucks for recovery of large spills or removal of contaminated soil.

An upright vacuum is self contained and can be stored in a small space for immediate use.

Here we have an example of a vacuum sharing a small storage space with a clothes 
steamer.

  5. boilerdoc makes a good point. It took me 15 minutes of looking before I remembered something about a vacuum. So, just to be safe, I looked at the woman again for 15 more. What were we doing again? I can't find Waldo, anyhow.
