Vacuum Cleaner Cards is a card routine by Paul Harris published in Super Magic (1977).

A funny Ace Assembly type routine with a script full of bad puns. A deck of cards is split into two halves. Three Kings buried into the "carpet" packet. The remaining King placed in the "vacuum cleaner" packet, which magically sucks the other Kings out of the "carpet" and they are found together in the center of the "vacuum cleaner" packet.

Harris performs and teaches it on his Stars of Magic, Adventures in Close-up video (Vol. 3). It was also featured in Michael Ammar's Video Easy to Master Card Miracles, Vol. 9.

It was later republished in Art of Astonishment Volume 1, page 159 using Aces.
