As an added attraction, visitors to Hoover's booth at the show will meet and receive tips from Heloise, America's premier household hints expert.

Three models of the popular Hoover Self Propelled WindTunnel(TM) upright vacuum cleaner now come with the addition of an on-board turbine-powered hand tool, which is ideal for cleaning stairs and upholstery.
