In the world of must-have appliances, a powerful handheld vacuum is up there. These little machines can suck up dirt and leftover cereal with the push of a button – no need to break out the “real” vacuum. With the New Year fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to pick one up for any cleaning resolutions you might have – or just to keep your desk clean while snacking at work! The Black + Decker Advanced Clean Cordless Handheld is currently just $50, which is an absolute steal and perfect for vacuuming dust and dirt in your car, behind the TV, and other hard-to-reach places. .
I own this guy, and it’s no exaggeration to say that he changed my life. My kids are incredibly good at getting food everywhere, but the table at mealtimes and vacuuming after breakfast, lunch and dinner was time consuming and, frankly, boring . But one quick hit with this handheld vacuum and my floors and seats are clean again in seconds, no plugging or heavy sweeping required.
The vacuum is lithium-ion powered for long battery life and strong suction power. This means you can get a lot of suction from a single charge if you tend to forget to plug it back in after use. The handheld is so light that cleaning high shelves is a breeze.
No need to worry about filter grime buildup, thanks to the Dustbuster’s cyclonic action. Simply vacuum up what you need to clean, empty the bagless dirt bowl, and get on with your life.
Another cool feature: a rotating slim nozzle lets you get in just about anywhere without having to do any forearm stunts.
I’m not the only one obsessed with this dust collector: it has a huge 57,000+ five star reviews. One satisfied customer calls the vacuum a “little powerhouse”, adding that it “quickly and easily vacuums up crumbs, hair, dust, litter and all those other little items that plague our surfaces and make our space so much more pleasant”.
This five-star reviewer actually came back to reflect on his love for this dust collector 2.5 years later. “I bought this almost 2 1/2 years ago and STILL had NO issues. And it rides strong. Battery still holds a charge,” they wrote.
Another sums it up best: “I have a dog that sheds a lot, and this vacuum is a miracle!”
Want a dust collector that will solve your dirt problems and last for years? You know what to do.
