See how well Roombas and other robot vacuum cleaners work on stairs, hardwood floors, with rugs and other obscacles. I like iLife robot vacuums because they’re more affordable. (Actually, I have two — one upstairs and one downstairs!) These photos and videos tell the whole story about the iRobot Roomba and other popular robot vacuum cleaners — HOW they work, how WELL they work, which are the BEST ones, and how to CLEAN them. My personal experience with robot vacuum cleaners and pets.
Use these tips to clean, disinfect, and remove mold, mildew, bacteria, germs, soap scum… like a pro! A list of all the best cleaning products for the kitchen sink, bathroom sink, bathtub, bath mats, refrigerator, chrome, mirrors, appliances, carpet, upholstery, glass, wood trim, baseboards, cabinets, hardwood floors, vinyl flooring, fingerprints, painted walls, scuff marks, crayon marks, stovetop, stainless steel, and polishing the furniture.
As someone who works from home and spends a lot of time in my house — I LOVE receiving clever (and useful) home gifts. If you know someone who recently moved into a new house or someone who appreciates owning one-of-a-kind items… then you’ve come to the right place to find something special for them this year! I own most of these items myself and I know that your friends and family members are going to enjoy them too!
I have both, an A8 model and a V8 model of the iLife robot vacuum. (They’re about half the price of a Roomba iRobot vacuum!) I use the A8 upstairs where most of the rooms are carpeted, and I use the V8 downstairs where we do most of our living with 3 dogs in the house (and have mostly hardwood flooring and lots of throw rugs). Here’s my list of the pros & cons of a robot vacuum cleaner vs. a traditional upright vacuum cleaner, and how well the wet mopping feature works on an auto vacuum cleaner.
For the past 12 years, I’ve been using an Oreck Compact Canister Handheld Vacuum. It’s kinda clunky, slightly noisy, and has bags that need to be changed all the time. So I set out to find a better hand vac. Here are the best hand vacs I found for vacuuming hardwood floors – especially pet hair and stairs.
