As a mom of 2 boys and dog, my house gets dirty QUICK! I don't know about you but having a clean and tidy house makes me sooooo happy! On the other hand having cleaning tools and appliances that don't cut it, make up upset. It becomes a waste of time and money. So I'm sharing with you 4 house cleaning appliances that have been a great investment for our home.

Our home is a 4 bedroom 3 1/2 bath of about 1700 sq feet. Being a single mom with a 4 & 6 year old means that I'm pretty much left on my own to do all the real cleaning. Oh, and I have an almost 2 year old Black Lab who is in a season of shedding right now. All of that to say, it's a LOT of floor space and mess to keep up with.
The EUFY robot vacuum has been a super convenient way to keep floors clear and looking clean in between deep clean sessions, or for a beginning step of cleaning day.
I simply pick up any objects the kids or dog may have left on the ground and let her go!
Here are a few things that I think have made it helpful for us:
- I actually have 2 pet gates up to keep Roxy from getting into all ends of the house. This has helped also keep our robot vac to cleaning certain rooms and spaces at a time since it sets up a barrier. For example. When I have the EUFY running in the main living space; its cannot get into the bedroom or bathroom areas.
- I don't have rug tassels or wires exposed that that EUFY can get tangled on. I learned this right away. The best way to let your robot vac go and walk away is to make sure there is nothing loose on the floors. This particular robot vac seems to navigate really well around the spaces in our house so big items are not an issue.

ItI cannot tell you how many mops I've gone through. They just are either gross, hard to keep sanitary, or create too much waste (swiffer set jet style). I was so happy to be turned on to steam mopping. Steam cleaning floors allows the mop head to absorb dirt while the steam kills bacteria and dust mites, leaving floors more sanitary.
This steam mop cleaner by Pursteam has been great to use and leaves my floors looking fantastic! I LOVE knowing I'm not putting toxic chemicals on the floor while still sanitizing it.
The only downside is that it doesn't get really caked on dirt out all the time. I don't mind giving problem areas a little scrub. This steam cleaner has a variety of attachments to do many different tasks. You can even use it to steam your clothes. It's super easy to use and one fill of water goes a decent way cleaning. I highly recommend!
It's also relatively affordable! Check it out here.
Ok, so full disclosure, my vacuum is brand new so I can't attest to it's longevity. But the first time I used it, I was SHOOK! My house is maintained most often by my EUFY, Wet Vac, and some sweeping and swiffering the majority of the time. It doesn't LOOK bad.
But when I used this powerhouse of a vacuum for the first time, the amount of dirt and hair it picked up was both incredibly disgusting and amazingly satisfying. (It'd share a pic, but I'll save you the vomit face).
It is a little hard to push on the rug, because suction is so strong, but it glides easily on hardwood, has simply bagless release, and comes with several attachements. My favorite is the special tool for removing pet hair from furniture like my couch and sofa cushions. Lifesaver!
It was a good price and does a heck of a good job. See for yourself here.
Clearly this post is great for all the pet lovers out there. My lab tracks dirt and paw prints on my rug (so sad) so this wet vac has been such a help. It's easy to use, you fill the tank with water and some of the cleaning solution and there is a trigger for when you want to release the solution, otherwise it works just like a regular vacuum. It has a tank that collects the dirty water, which is eewww to see but you absolutely know its working!
I dump the dirty water down the toilet and simply flush it away.
If you want to get your rug or carpets cleaned, this has worked well for me. The drying time is maybe half a day. Check out more about this pet carpet cleaner here.
