The cleaning helpers below range from standard upright vacuums for those wanting a more hands-on approach to robot vacuums for the more tech-savvy folks. Looking to do some lighter chores? Countertop disinfectant and durable towels will go a long way in helping your home sparkle. For all those needs and more, check out our picks below for top-tier cleaning equipment at major discounts.
No matter what type of floor you need to clean, a robot vacuum can help. Different models, however, will have different benefits for different kinds of shoppers. The iRobot Roomba s9+ ($899.99), for instance, comes with an automatic dirt disposal system that will empty dirt into the base immediately after docking. iRobot's 675 ($199.99), on the other hand, is a more wallet-friendly model that can still be controlled from you smartphone. Take your pick from those and other vacuums below!
Upright and handheld vacuums
No matter how thorough of a job your robot vacuum does, there may be some crevices or corners that can't quite be reached. That's when you need a full-sized or handheld vacuum to get the job done. Check out the Dyson V11 Outsize cordless stick vacuum ($699.99), for instance, which we named one of Dyson's best vacuums of the year for its large brush head and larger cleaning path. For those looking for something at a value price, there's the Bissell PowerClean Rewind ($93.49), which customers praised for being easy to assemble and capable of handling different kinds of floors.
There's only so much laser-focused attention you can give to all the food and drinks you consume above your carpet before a spill happens. When those inevitable stains start to seep in, it helps to have a carpet cleaner on hand. Larger jobs and lengthy sweeps are meant for Bissell's Big Green professional carpet cleaner ($399.98) with its extra-large dirt-lifting power brush and 9-foot long hose to seep up debris from surfaces.
Of course, some homes are more spaced out than others and require something that can be more easily moved around, like the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Cleaner ($129). Weighing less than 19-pounds, shoppers found success with the cleaner's automatic detergent mixing system and forced heated air, which can dry-clean spaces. There's plenty more to choose from below.
Before you vacuum, it can be a good idea to sweep up any errant dust and crumbs. For those in need of a broom to collect dust and other trash in a straightforward way, there's the Quickie broom ($19.97), which has a 24-inch brush head to cover a lot of ground. Nearly 300 customers praised it for what they said was a comfortable fiberglass handle, lightweight design and durability.
To give floors a cleaning and a shine afterwards, there are also plenty of mops on sale. For instance, there's the O-Cedar spin mop and bucket ($29.98), which we included in our best mops of the year list for its easy-to-clean mop head, which can be thrown in the wash, and its spinning mechanism, which helps to wring it out. While other mops we tested took multiple spins to shake the water out of the head before use, we found that the O-Cedar only need one turn before tackling dirt and spills.
Find these and more of both options on sale below.
In addition to your floors, there may be stains and crumbs to pick up in other areas, like your countertops. Keep the bigger cleaning equipment in storage and reach for a simple towel, like these Ovwo cleaning cloths ($9.99), to handle stains around the home. There's also these Utopia towels ($14.99), another affordable option that we named the best of its kind for its ability to handle small-shaped dishes.
