March 19th is the first day of spring. That means it’s time to get off your butt, dig in and start getting serious about cleaning up the house that’s been tumbling into chaos all winter.
If you’re like Snow White, you’ve probably already got a passel of forest creatures all lined up to help out, sweeping floors, washing windows and clearing away the debris of winter. But since this isn’t 1937, we’re going to assume you don’t have that woodland workforce. It’s 2020 — and you need robots. Powerful, healthy strapping robots. Robots who aren’t afraid of getting dirty to get your house clean.
We’ve collected 20 different home cleaning aids, many from the R2-D2 family, to help. Best of all, if you get one right now, you can take an extra 15 percent off at checkout with the code SPRINGSAVE15. Happy cleaning!
With a powerful 5,700RPM built-in motor and a unique, rotating dual-spin mop, the Elicto Everybot RS500 Robotic Spin Mop & Polisher ($237.99 after discount; originally $279) goes everywhere with its soft little microfibers, getting into hard-to-reach corners and clearing out dust like a champ.
In the event you’re willing to expel a little elbow grease of your own to save some money, you can still get deep effective cleaning with the Elicto ES-500 Electric Corded Spin Mop & Polisher ($101.99 after discount; originally $119). fully adjustable aluminum alloy handle, 180° swivel joint, and 25-foot long cord, you’ll never need to kneel or bend, which is probably just fine by you.
With amazing versatility and premium quality, the Elicto Super Sweeper SS-130 ($21.24 after discount; originally $24) has a groundbreaking 6 blades which roll dust and debris into a ball, comb it from your surface and then perfectly wipe up even the finest remains. Meanwhile, the InstaSweep Hard Floor Surface Sweeper ($21.24 after discount; originally $35.99) packs 3-way, tornadic triple sweep technology that creates a cleaning vortex inside, lifting up dust, dirt and pet hair with ease.
Floor moppers and sweepers are great, but if you’ve got carpets or rugs, you probably need a little more floor cleaning power. The Samsung POWERbot R9250 Robot Vacuum (Certified Refurbished) ($322.14 after discount; originally $699.99) isn’t one of those vacs that gets stuck behind the couch. Smoothly transitioning over different surfaces the POWERbot uses visionary mapping sensors to avoid obstacles while its powerful suction pulls up 50 times more suction to clear all floor types.
But if the R9250 is good, the Samsung POWERbot R9350 Turbo Robot Vacuum (Certified Refurbished) ($355.30 after discount; originally $725) is even better. The CycloneForce technology assures long-lasting suction power with less clogging -- and you can even remotely control the POWERbot right from your smartphone.
Admit it, you’ve always wanted a little robot that’d cruise across your window panes and make ‘em sparkle. The HOBOT 198 Glass Cleaning Robot ($297.49 after discount; originally $399) is your dream. Just download the free app, tap to connect, set it on your window and let ‘er rip. A forceful vacuum sucks out dust, while two cleaning wheels follow up so no streaks get left behind. It’s awesome...but you could also step up the 2019 CES Innovation Award winner, the HOBOT-298 ($365.49 after discount; originally $499). Packed with even more smart features and operation modes, the automatic ultrasonic water spray mist dissolves dust and polish windows at the same time.
Trash duty can be a gross duty. But the Townew, better known as the world's first self-sealing and changing trash can ($89.24 after discount; originally $119.85) replaces the gross with general awe. Just hold the touch button when the trash is full, and the Townew seals your bag automatically for easy removal. Pull out the sealed bag and the lid closes and puts a new recyclable trash bag in its place. You never even have to see, let alone touch the trash again. The only thing the Townew won’t do is take the garbage out to the curb. That’s on you.
Meanwhile, iTouchless has a whole bunch of trash bin options to fit whatever you’re looking for. You can go sturdy and low-tech with a 16-Gallon Dual-Deodorizer Round Open-Top model ($79.04 after discount; originally $149.95) or a 17-Gallon Swing-Top Stainless Steel version ($101.99 after discount; originally $179.99).
Or you can level up to easy-open sensor cans that’ll pop open when you hit the pressure pad. You can choose from the 13-Gallon Pet-Proof Sensor can with Wheels ($67.99 after discount; originally $104.95), the 13-Gallon & 2.5-Gallon Automatic Sensor can that absorbs odors ($84.99 after discount; originally $159.95), or the AutoStep Pro 13-Gallon Step-Sensor can that helps stop the spread of germs ($101.99 after discount; originally $179.95).
Assorted other helpers
Just like those little birds that airlifted Snow White’s laundry on to the clothesline, you need some additional specialized help for some of your more specialized cleaning jobs.
The RevoClean 4-in-1 Drill Brush Cleaning Kit ($21.24 after discount; originally $39.99) actually turns your power drill into a high-powered cleaning tool to cover virtually any surface in your home.

When your car, truck, bike or even some muddy boots needs a deep cleaning, the Brush Hero Deluxe Set ($42.49 after discount; originally $49.99) attaches to your garden hose and uses a powerful cleaning head brush to get inside hard-to-reach areas and scoop out any mud, debris or other areas that make a big mess.
Your computer screens and TV monitors get pretty dirty too, so the Whoosh!

And since your car could use some love too, the Mini Cordless Car Vacuum Cleaner ($33.95 after discount; originally $49.99) is smaller than a water bottle but strong enough to suck up all the junk that fall into the cracks of your vehicle.
