9 Must-Have Cleaning Tools to Make Dirty Jobs Less Awful

Cleaning your house is kind of like death and taxes – no one can escape it. However, there are now fantastic gadgets which can make it a lot easier for you and even a lot more fun. Or if not fun, at the very least a helluva stress reliever as you angrily scrub your shower and take out your aggression toward that awful coworker.

Robot Vacuum

Vacuuming is kind of the worst. It’s hot, it’s heavy, it’s dirty, and it takes for ever. So maybe it’s time to make a robot cleaner can be your new best friend. Robot vacuum cleaners are fun, they look impressive, and they can clean the floors for you while you’re at work. And who doesn’t love it when someone (or something) else does the dirty work for you? 

Clean Air

During the warmer months, allergies can be absolutely brutal, so many people opt for using a purifier to filter out some of the pollen and other itch-inducing floaties. If you’re looking for something smart, the Airmega lets you control it from an Android or iPhone app and see the status of your air quality.

Steam Mops

This is another must-have to help with the allergies, as more and more people are turning to natural cleaning options. Researchers have found that using steam to sanitize and scrub surfaces is an easier, more effective, and much safer choice than chemical cleaners. Harnessing the power of steam, it can kill up to 99.9% of germs while simultaneously sweeping away dirt and grime from both hard floors and carpets. There are various options to choose from when it comes to Steam Mops, so it’s good to shop around to get the best one for your needs. 

Microfiber Ceiling Fan Duster

This isn’t one of the most popular chores on the list, but if you have a ceiling fan, then it needs to be cleaned. Otherwise, it will be blowing out dust and dirt all over your house. Get yourself a specially designed Ceiling Fan Duster as this is intended to make the job much more straightforward and you don’t need any step stools or ladders. 

Drillbrush Cleaning Attachment Kit

Save your elbow grease and let your drill do all the tile and grout cleaning for you by turning it into a power scrubber with the help of a brush attachment kit.

Carpet Shampooer

While vacuuming is great for getting the dust and debris out of your carpet, it’s not actually cleaning it. If you want to really clean your carpet, then you need a carpet shampooer like the Bissell DeepClean Professional. It can be used to suction up any matted-in mess which makes your carpet a totally different color than it should be. 

Mattress Vacuum

You don’t need to know how many dust mites and skin cells are lurking on your mattress; all you need to know that your mattress needs a good clean every now and again. All you need to do this in a vacuum and baking soda and Dyson makes a portable vac designed explicitly for mattresses, The Dyson V6 Mattress Vacuum. However, your ordinary vacuum will still work if you use the crevice tool. All you need to do is to vacuum your mattress, then spray it with warm water using a spray bottle. After that, put baking soda over the surface, and while the mattress is still moist, you can scrub any spots with an old toothbrush. Then let it dry and vacuum up the baking soda and your mattress will look good as new.

Self-Cleaning Litter Box

We all love our cats, but having to clean up after them is admittedly gross. Investing in a Litter-Robot III Open-Air Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter Box pretty much eliminates the more unpleasant tasks of being a cat owner. It automatically separates the clean litter from the clumps and drops the waste into a carbon-filtered drawer. It has a large entry for cats of all sizes and is ideal for multi-cat households.

Power Squeegee

A cordless and handheld Karcher Power Squeegee can make cleaning your windows so much easier and leaves no dirty water dripping or steaks. After you are done, you simply empty the dirty water and recharge it. It’s like a window vacuum cleaner, you can use it indoors and out, and you’ll soon have brighter, cleaner windows and surfaces than ever before.
