To clean small areas, detach the Handle by depressing
the button where the bottom of the Handle slides into the
Barbie™ Real Vacuum and pull the entire Handle assembly
out. Use the Barbie™ Real Vacuum by holding the built-in

Maintenance
The key to maximum performance is emptying the Dirt Cup
frequently and cleaning the Filter. Emptying the Dirt Cup after
each use, and cleaning the Filter periodically, will help your
Barbie™ Real Vacuum operate at peak efficiency. This procedure should be done by an adult and not the child.
Make sure that the Barbie™ Real Vacuum is in the “OFF” position.

With Barbie™ Real Vacuum facing away from you, grasp
Dust Cup in right hand and turn it toward you (toward
the back of the Barbie™ Real Vacuum).
Clean exterior surfaces with a soft cloth dampened with water
only. Do not use a strong detergent or other cleaner - this
may damage the finish. Always unplug the Barbie™ Real
Vacuum from the electrical outlet before cleaning the surface.
After heavy usage, you may clean the Filter by gently rinsing it
in a bowl of water and mild dish detergent. Rinse thoroughly
under running water and make certain it is completely dry
before replacing it. You may also purchase replacement Filters.
Use only BISSELL Filters in the Barbie™ Real Vacuum.
If the Filter becomes damaged or becomes too dirty
to wash, you may purchase new filters by calling
BISSELL Consumer Services.
