We asked all of you to tell us what products you want us to try before you buy so you know if it's "Bull or No Bull." Viewer and kindergarten teacher Tiffany Crawford sent us this email:

Will you try the dust daddy? I am curious if it has the suction ability the ad claims. I really could use this product if it is "no bull." I am a teacher and single parent. I can not afford to waste money on a product. Thank you.


Tiffany and I put the Dust Daddy to the test. The Dust Daddy is basically a fancy vacuum attachment. To paraphrase, the infomercial explains that it has dozens of individual, tiny suction tubes that are flexible and can go anywhere that dust hides.

So, we attached it to a vacuum cleaner and tried it on a keyboard. We also tackled the dust in and around the tool boxes. The cool thing is that the tubes are so small that if you wanted to get dust out of a container of screws or even jewelry, it only removes the dust and doesn't suck up the objects. Then, we went to her car! Tiffany used it on her seat and in her cup holder. So far, so good!

Since Tiffany is a teacher, we gave her some homework. The assignment: Use the Dust Daddy on three areas in the classroom and decide if it's "Bull or No Bull"!

She went over salt on a desk, pencil shavings, and marker dust by her whiteboard. We asked her, "Tiffany, where does it rank on our 'Bull or No Bull Meter'?" She replied with enthusiasm, "NO BULL!"

The Dust Daddy did as it claimed, picking up fine particles like dust and leaving bigger debris behind. It costs $19.95 with free shipping. Click here if you want to give it a try. Click here to watch the infomercial.

The vacuum attachment is supposed to get into the tiniest cracks and crevices. They say it can, "get dust out of every nook and cranny." It comes with a universal adapter, so, "it can be connected to any vacuum", and you should be able to use it on your silk plants too! Try it on your light fixtures, blinds in your home, your couch, vents, a drawer full of toys or legos, books, and wherever else you collect dust. Let us know how it works for you.
