I’ve always wondered if no-name melamine cleaning blocks are as good as Magic Erasers. So I tested them side by side. A cheap melamine sponge works great!
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.
