Speed Cleaning Must-Haves
The iRobot Roomba
If you don't have one (or a few) of these... what are you waiting for? There is no greater satisfaction than to not have to clean yourself. Does this get into every nook and cranny ? No. Does it beat having to vacuum everywhere vs having to only vacuum nooks and crannies/hard to reach areas? YES.
I have owned and gifted many of these, and I remain faithful to the iRobot brand simply because I have yet to be disappointed. The customer service is awesome, all parts and replacement brushes are cheap and my oldest continues to work after 8 years? That's impressive. However, nothing has blown my socks off quite like the newer iRobot Roomba j7+. It blew all my previous Roombas out of the water and my expectations out of the water.
It ... empties... itself.
I can ask it to start. (Alexa enabled).
You only have to empty it out once every couple of months depending on how often you use it and how dirty your floors get.
The Tool Belt
You don't need to be a professional housekeeper to get one of these tool-belts. It is handy AF. It keeps you going from room to room without having to go back and forth getting products, wipes, brushes etc.. This will cut your cleaning time in half and also make getting ready to clean so fast.. just slap it on and go. It's also really handy for gardening.

The Floor Master
Having to lug around a water bucket is so 90s. It's the age of the gen Z and convenience is key. Why are you mopping when a robot can mop for you?
