The Want List: Gadgets to Slay Spring Cleaning

Work smarter, not harder, with these four additions to your home cleaning arsenal.

It’s spring cleaning season, and you’re busy. Don’t you want to make the most of your time working towards that hygienic sparkle? Because some tasks simply can’t be tackled by rags and sponges alone, consider powering up your routine with a few additional pieces of equipment:

This handheld steam cleaner.

Bissell Steam Shot Handheld Steam Cleaner & Sanitizer

Maybe you have a steamer for wardrobe tasks. If you don’t, this thing is up for that task — and more importantly, it’s up for many tasks. This multi-purpose steam cleaner is a blast in more ways than one. 10 tools, from fabric steamer to window cleaner to brushes of many sizes, let you hack cleaning just about every surface in the house, knocking out 99.9% of germs and bacteria with absolutely no chemicals whatsoever. Just fill it up with water, plug it into the wall and your chosen attachment, and you’ll have trigger-ready steam superpowers.

That viral power scrubber.

LABIGO Electric Spin Scrubber

Oh, you’re gonna degunk your grout with a toothbrush? How quaint. It doesn’t matter if you can bench a Mack truck on just one bicep: There are some things even a figurative forklift pallet of elbow grease won’t get out, and for that, there’s a power tool. Armed with a multitude of attachments, this cordless, rechargeable spin scrubber you’ve probably seen on social media is here to lend that helping hand. Get those grout lines back to their intended color, and your shower shining like the top of the Chrysler building.

A modern mop bucket.

O-Cedar Easy Wring Mop and Bucket System

You know how spritzing sanitizer on your hands never feels quite the same as actually washing them? Disposable pad wet mops are great for quick tidy-ups, but when those floors need a true deep clean, there’s nothing like the full-service, water-based treatment. O-Cedar’s mop and bucket sets check all the boxes. These telescoping microfiber mops come with removable, machine-washable heads that glide effortlessly through any room — plus, their triangle shape ensures they’ll quite literally never cut corners. On the bucket, a pedal-powered, salad spinner-like wringing mechanism keeps your hands free and water clean. And that soft microfiber gets the grit while being gentle on surfaces, whether you’re dealing with hardwood, laminate, or tile.

One of these vacuums.

Dyson V8 Cordless

There’s a reason this cordless, lightweight number is considered by many to be the gold standard of vacuums.  Unlike jack-of-all-trades-and-master-of-none alternatives, the main unit has a full roster of interchangeable heads in addition to attachments. There’s a specific head for hard floors, a Motorbar head that detangles hair before it spools around the brush bar, a combination brush/wide nozzle, and the quintessential crevice tool. Precision engineering makes navigation easy, whether you’re spot cleaning the dog bed or tackling a large carpeted area.
