The hottest cleaning gadgets in 2018

What are the newest and hottest cleaning gadgets on the market, and are they worth the investment? Unfortunately they have yet to invent a robot that simply does all the work for you (and perhaps gives you a nice foot rub at the end of the day!) but until then, here are the cleaning gadgets worth putting on your wish list.

A robot vacuum

Nobody ever wished they had spent more time hoovering. Hoovering doesn’t even have the satisfaction element of a good scrub or polish, so why not turn the whole chore over to a robot? The iRobot Roomba can handle three different floor types, and responds to voice commands with an Alexa or Google Assistant so you don’t even have to get up to turn it on or off!

A robot mop

If you’re going to turn the vacuuming over to a robot, why not washing the floors too? The iRobot Braava jet will not only sweep and mop, it can decide itself which the floor requires – and won’t even leave you high and dry after sneaking into a ball and meeting Prince Charming.

Or combine the two with the Ecovacs Deebot N78 which can vacuum as well as sweep and mop – though it is so cute you may well get princes showing up at your door with shoes for it to try on.

Take your scrubbing to the next level

When elbow grease doesn’t quite cut it, tackle stubborn grime and stains with an electric scrubber. With several different brush heads for getting into all those nooks and crannies, the Sonic Scrubber will polish your kitchen and bathroom so you don’t have to – it’s basically a giant electric toothbrush for your cooker!

Superclean Keyboard Putty

This one is a little less space age-y than the others, but the bacteria that sets up home on your keyboard doesn’t bear thinking about, and cleaning it properly can be awkward. Simply press the Superclean Keyboard Putty down on your keyboard, then lift up – it is reusable and leaves behind a fresh lime smell.

A house that’s always just right

This one isn’t a cleaning gadget, but what good is a clean and tidy house if it is too cold or too warm? The Nest Learning Thermostat will not only let you control your heating and hot water remotely via the app, after about a week it will learn your routine and switch off when you don’t need heating, slashing your energy bill in the long run.

Of course, if you want to spend less time cleaning and more time doing what you love, call Molly Maid for a home cleaning quote.
