Before we get into it, I’d like to say I hate cleaning. Well, that’s not entirely true. I hate starting to clean, even if I enjoy it once I start.
That’s why I’ve stocked my home with the latest and best cleaning gadgets to make the process as painless as possible.
From robot vacuums to smart mops, I’ve got it all. These gadgets not only make cleaning a breeze, but they also save me time and energy.
Plus, I can set them to clean while I’m away or asleep with features like app control and scheduling. So, not only does my home look great, but I also have more time to do the things I actually enjoy.
So, outsource that scrubbing to robots, who don’t necessarily care what time of day it is. That way, you can sleep and wake up to a clean home.
So, buckle up and take some notes because we’re about to tackle this cleaning gig with some of the best cleaning gadgets available.
How we made our picks
Finding the best cleaning gadgets can be a daunting task. There are so many options; it can take a long time to find the best one for your needs.
Our list is a result of rigorous hands-on testing and extensive research.
Additionally, we spent hours scouring the internet for user reviews, Reddit posts, and YouTube videos, dedicating countless hours to making the most comprehensive list.
But mainly, our first-hand experience is ultimately how we made our picks.
Alright, with that out of the way, are you ready to dive in? Here are our favorites for keeping your home clean from top to bottom.
The best house cleaning gadgets money can buy right now
Giraffe Tools Grandfalls pressure washer ($310)
A pressure washer is an absolute must-have for any homeowner.
It’s the ultimate tool for tackling a wide range of cleaning tasks around your home, from your car and siding to your paths and the kids’ bikes. The possibilities are endless
UPDATE: Since we last looked at this pressure washer, Giraffe Tools has brought out three more in the Grandfalls range, including the $600 Grandfalls Pro, which upgrades the hose and makes it replaceable, among other improvements.
The Grandfalls pressure washer is a cut above the rest with its wall-mount design and electric power source, putting it in a league of its own compared to traditional gas-powered models.
But that’s not all; it also has an exclusive feature that sets it apart from any other pressure washer on the market.
The cherry on top is its automatic hose coiling feature, which makes cleanup a breeze by reeling in the hose for you when you’re finished with your cleaning tasks.
I mean, look how cool this is. I wish everything in my home could retract like this.
Showerheads, sink hoses, power cables. No more snaked cables, no more kinked ones, no more knotted messes. This is an absolute godsend.
Roborock Q5+ robot vacuum ($700 with dock)
A robot vacuum is one of the best time-saving technologies for cleaning your house. They’ll keep your floors free of dust, hair, and anything you’d normally have to spend hours vacuuming.
The better ones, like this Q5+ from Roborock, can navigate around your furniture, map your floors, remember which floor they’re on, and more.
For those reasons, we feel this model is the best robot vacuum for most people.
The combo of good suction and a self-emptying dock means it’s as maintenance-free as your floors will be.
WORX Hydroshot Ultra WG649 40V High-Pressure Handheld Cleaner ($390)
The best thing about this WORX pressure washer is that it is battery-powered. No, really.
That means all you need is a water source, a bucket, a hose, or a lake.
You can drop the feed hose for this washer into dirty water, and it’ll not pick up a single bit of dirt, so you’ll have a stream of clean, pressurized water to clean whatever you need to.
Add in some handy attachments, and you’ll be able to clean everything quickly and cleanly.
Roborock S7 MaxV Ultra ($1,400)
We said the Q5+ was the best robovac for most people, but what if you need more?
The top-of-the-line robot vacuum from Roborock, the S7 MaxV Ultra, costs double, but you get more cleaning ability.
Now, you can also mop your floors with a self-cleaning and self-emptying dock which means all your floor surfaces need minimal maintenance.
This is currently on my main floor, and I’ve not had to mop, vacuum, or sweep like we used since I got it. Bliss.
Dreametech D10 Plus self-cleaning bot ($400)
If white is more your home aesthetic, you might want to check out the Dreametech D10.
This stylish self-emptying robotic cleaner can vacuum and mop while LiDAR maps your floors for effective cleaning.
That cleaning can go on for 45 days before emptying the bag into the dock.
It’s also got a 5,200 mAh battery for 2,900 square feet of cleaning before needing to charge, and 4,000Pa of suction gets everything off your floors.
Roborock Dyad ($450)
Update: Roborock is preparing to launch the Dyad Pro, which features app control, heated roller drying, longer battery life, and an auto-dispensing cleaning solution. The existing Dyad is still great, but figured it was worth sharing anyways.
Mopping sucks. It’s messy, and you have to wait ages for your floors to dry.
Roborock’s Dyad adds a wet/dry vacuum to powered mopping rollers, so your floors will be spotless and dry in no time.
I’ve got a robot vacuum cleaning my floors daily, and this upright still shocked me with how much dirt it sucked off my planking.
Samsung AI Bespoke Washer and Dryer (pricing varies)
Doing laundry ranks pretty high among the most hated chores in America.
The Bespoke Washer and Dryer combo take the guesswork out of laundry by sensing fabric type and soil levels and adjusting wash time and detergent accordingly.
In other words, it knows what kind of clothes or fabric it’s cleaning and how dirty they are.
Then, it adjusts its cleaning cycle and soap levels to ensure it gets the job done right in one washing cycle.
iRobot Roomba m6 robot mop ($350-400)
It’s 2023; you don’t have to push a mop around. The Braava Jet m6 does all the mopping for you, with Wi-Fi control, automated schedules, and more.
With a larger water tank than its non-Wi-Fi counterpart, this bad boy can easily tackle even the biggest messes.
But it’s not just about brute strength – the m6 is a smart cookie too. It can map your home and make sure it covers every inch of the floor while it dry sweeps or wet mops.
Plus, if you have one of the I-, S-, or 900-series Roomba vacuums, you can use its Imprint Link tech to coordinate all their cleaning tasks.
Roomba S9+ ($1,000)
Our founder, Kevin, swears by this robotic vacuum, and who are we to disagree?
Yes, it’s pricey. Yes, the auto-empty dock or gold accents might not fit everyone’s tastes. But who cares when it gets your floors this clean?
Why aren’t we recommending the i7+, a more cost-effective choice? Because it can occasionally become unresponsive and requires manual intervention from time to time.

That’s not what we want to see from a robovac, so we’re knocking it down a peg. Read our review for the full rundown.
BISSELL SpotBot Pet Portable Carpet Cleaner ($185)
For life’s little accidents, the Spotbot is supreme.
Fill the tank with warm water and cleaning solution, put the automatic cleaning brush over the mess, and walk away. It’s that simple.
For more stubborn stains or furniture, you can use the hose to spray, scrub, then vacuum all the dirt away.
I’ve got a non-automatic version, and I love it, but I wish I’d gone for this with the one-touch brush.
Molekule Air Pro ($1000)
We all know we should clean our surfaces, but what about our air?
After all, breathing is quite important. Molekule’s Air Pro is a cleaning gadget that quietly removes dirt from your air.
That’s not all it can clean, though, as it can destroy bacteria, mold, and viruses, thanks to its PECO tech.
Recently the company added new filters that add True HEPA particle capture to the mix.
You also can monitor your indoor air with Volatile Organic Compounds, Particulate Matter 1.0, Particulate Matter 2.5, Particulate Matter 10, Carbon Dioxide, and Relative Humidity. Each filter lasts for six months too.
Dyson Omni-glide+ cordless vacuum ($369)
Dyson’s smallest vacuum for hard floors, the Omni-glide+, has some pretty sweet tricks.
It’ll go flat to the floor for cleaning under your cabinets. It picks up crud when pushed or pulled and glides around furniture.
You also get a light pipe crevice tool, so you can see what you’re doing in tight spaces, and it converts to a handheld for furniture or your car.
Oh, and it’s got all the suction power and air cleaning you’d expect from a Dyson.
Phonesoap HomeSoap ($199.95)
What about those devices that are hard to keep clean, like smartphones, video game controllers, or those for your TV?
Enter the HomeSoap, a cleaning gadget that uses UV-C light to clean all the germs off your tech.
It’ll kill off 99.9% of all the germs on your remotes and other small gadgets, and it’s large enough to stick in remotes, tablets, or weird shapes like your game controllers.
Oh, and it amplifies audio when things are inside, so you won’t miss notifications while disinfecting your phone.
Westinghouse 32” 3-in-1 Bladeless Tower Fan ($300)
Clean air is more important than ever.
This Westinghouse 32-inch tower fan uses a HEPA 13/14 filter to scrub the air’s nasty particles, viruses, and bacteria. Then, UV light sterilizes everything, so there’s no buildup.
It’s also got a bladeless design and 80-degree oscillation to spread the clean air around your home.
A quiet 35W motor keeps the sound below 55dB, the same amount of noise as your fridge. Add this to your home, and thank us later.
