These Cleaning & Organizing Tools Will Make Your Life So Much Easier
Robot vacuums, spot cleaners, and more.
According to the all-knowing Internet, the concept of spring cleaning dates back roughly 3,000 years to a Persian new year custom called khaneh tekani (translation: “shaking the house”). The idea was that sweeping up dust and debris and decluttering would shield the home — and its inhabitants — from bad luck. But you don’t have to be superstitious to relish the feeling of spotless floors and intuitively organized living spaces, and giving your house a much-needed glow-up doesn’t have to break the bank when you shop on Walmart.
An affordable, compact robot vacuum? Yes, please. A cordless cleaning brush that’ll make both your shower tiles and your car windshield spotless? Say less. A stylish, wall-mounted bike rack cheaper than a takeout dinner for two? You know what, maybe just read the rest of this article in your car on the way to Walmart (no speeding, please).
