Cleaning is not everyone’s favourite chore and it’s often at the bottom of the priority list. But it need not have to be this way when you have the right cleaning tools for each task. And when you do, it can be a fun and rewarding process. So read on to find out what you need to add to your cleaning arsenal.
First, go to your cleaning cupboard and throw your broom away because you won’t be needing it. Not to mention, every time you sweep, you’re redistributing the dust everywhere in your home. Get a cordless vacuum cleaner instead, the Dyson Cyclone V10 no less, as it’s the gold standard when it comes to cordless vacuum cleaner. Weighing half the weight of its predecessor with a bigger dust bin, an improved battery life of 60 minutes per charge and even more powerful suction, you’ll be able to vacuum every corner of your house in no time. This is definitely one of the must-have cleaning tools that make your life a whole lot easier.
After a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is clean your dishes after a meal. Invest in a dishwasher; you’ll thank yourself for it. Thanks to the ComfortLift feature, this award-winning dishwasher from Electrolux raises the dishwasher’s lower basket to a comfortable height with the simple touch of a button, so you don’t have to strain your back when loading and unloading the dishes. There are also different settings for upper and lower baskets to suit the contents in each basket. Furthermore, washing time can be adjusted and a full load can be done in half the time with the Eco/Flexi Wash programme.
If you have had impossible stains on your carpet that needed to be removed or curious to know how hospitals keep things sanitised, the secret is steam cleaning. Meant for household use, this new addition to Kärcher’s lineup of steam cleaners promises to not only clean, but eliminate 99.99% of all common household bacteria across various types of hard surfaces. This chemical-free cleaning method – no detergent needed – is 25% more effective and saves up to 80% of water compared with conventional cleaning methods. So, throw that mop away. God forbid, you’re spreading dirt and bacteria that can’t be seen by the naked eye with that dirty mop.
We clean every surface of the house but neglect the air that we breathe in. Plus, you may be surprised to know that the indoor air quality might be more polluted than outdoor air. Awarded the Allergy UK Seal of Approval for its impressive filtration system that captures fine dust, odour, smoke particles and harmful allergens, this Hitachi air purifier is one of the many cleaning tools, or rather, device to have in your home. Not to mention, its silent airflow operation means you can use it when sleeping.
Laundry day is to many a tedious task and a long process, as clothes need to be sorted and washed separately according to type and colour. Thanks to this nifty machine that boasts two washing compartments – the main washer handling bulky items such as the main load, blankets and curtains; while the TWINWash Mini pedestal tackles smaller loads such as hand towels and delicates; more time can be spent with family instead of doing laundry. While the enamel coating on the exterior repels fingerprints, scratches and corrosions, the low noise operation allows you to do your laundry on the timer mode while sleeping soundly.
