The robots in Terminator weren’t particularly helpful to humans. Kinda the opposite. But that’s not true of all automatons! In fact, there are a lot of products out there that can help you simplify and shorten your weekly cleaning routine.
Here are three of the most helpful robots you can buy:
When the iRobot Roomba first came out, it was a little weird. It’s still a little weird, but who can resist having their floors vacuumed during a nap? These Chihuahua-sized, hands-free vacuum cleaners will do the trick if you need your floors cleaned while you do the dishes. Sound compelling? Check out the Neato XV-21!
No matter how good of a scrubber you are, you’re still a human scrubber. Get this: Auto scrubbers can rotate up to 10,000x per minute on both dry and wet surfaces! They also come with extenders. You can use these to clean the crown molding in your ceilings, the top of bookshelves and doorframes. There are also waterproof options for cleaning toilet bowls and sinks. We like this kit from Sonic Scrubbers.
Here are three things almost nobody wants in their house: E. coli, dust mites and H1N1 (flu) germs. Well, if you’re tired of disinfecting the surfaces in your home by hand, this magical wand may be just what the doctor ordered. It uses ultraviolet light to kill germs and bacteria, and it’ll work on your electronics, fabrics and almost anywhere in your house. Verilux CleanWave is a good one to check out if you’re interested.
