"My BLACK+DECKER dust buster is the one thing I refuse to live without. It saves my sanity when cleaning up after my three kittens. It works so well on rogue food bits, stray litter and even pet hair that I bought a second one to keep upstairs." — Nikki Sneed, Apple News Editor

"I literally haven't stopped talking about this vacuum cleaner since I got it for Christmas. I'm a vacuuming fiend. My floors don't even have to be dirty for me to whip out my trusty dirt sucker just because I can. Human hair, pet hair, dirt clumps, tiny sticks and so much more are no match for this wonder. It's effective on tile, area rugs and wood flooring and comes with a removable (and washable!) filtration system. Although it's not cordless, the price and effectiveness can't be beat. Five-star rating from me!" — Ellie Sanders, Assistant Editor

"Friends are always so surprised at how clean our house is with three pets. I give all the credit to my Bissell Pet Hair Eraser. We leave this guy docked right next to the cats' litter boxes so we can quickly grab pet hair and stray litter. Triple-level filtration makes it clean like a beast, and the large dirt bin makes it a cinch to clean out between uses. It comes with a motorized brush tool, an upholstery tool and a crevice tool so I can take on everything from the sectional to the baseboards." — Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor

"After years of living the hardwood floor and broom life, I moved into an apartment with *gasp* carpet last year, and I had to pony up for a new vacuum. My fabulous, long-hair queen cat, Sheba, sheds quite a bit no matter how much I brush her, so I know I needed something pretty powerful—but I wasn't ready to spend more than $150. I also wanted the convenience of a cordless vacuum, and I didn't want to replace bags or filters. My exacting parameters led me to the Shark Rotator Freestyle Pro Cordless Vacuum, which I picked up on super-sale. It handles Sheba situations with ease and keeps every corner of my apartment plush and clean. It has two speeds and works great on the kitchen floor, too. The chamber empties easily, and the filter cleaning is a breeze, too." — Laura Susong, Social Media Editor

"I'm obsessed with this carpet and upholstery spot cleaner. We use it at least weekly. It's gotten raspberries out of a rug, yogurt off a sofa and it brought back a carpeted stairway that we were sure we would have to replace. They should basically hand these out at the hospital when you have kids, though it's awesome for pets, as well." — Marianne Canada, Executive Producer

"I not-so-secretly love vacuuming. After five years of service, my vacuum lost suction, and I was gifted a Shark for Christmas. It's been doing a great job of pulling out dirt and grime buried deep into the carpet left behind by my old vacuum. It also has several attachments and detaches from the base so you can vacuum curtains and hard-to-reach spots." — Jessica Yonker, Editor

"I was always skeptical about Dyson vacuums. When my sister saw me vacuuming during a recent visit, she asked how I could drag an appliance around the house that weighed more than a small child. She recommended the Dyson D7 cordless as a replacement, and my life has never been the same. If you think you hate vacuuming, I'll bet you're just using the wrong one. Since it doesn't need to be plugged into an outlet and it weighs next-to-nothing, I can zap cobwebs in the high corners of the ceiling, suck up all the Christmas tree needles and keep our dog's hair tumbleweeds at bay. And I enjoy using it." — Mallory Ziglar, Social Media Manager

"We scored our cordless Dyson for a killer deal on Black Friday, and I'm obsessed. It's so powerful, and I can vacuum the entire house in, like, 10 minutes. It makes vacuuming fun!" — Danielle Boaz, Production Coordinator

"I love this vacuum cleaner! I have a dog, and it does a great job getting up the pet hair. My home consists of carpet, hardwood floors and rugs, and this vacuum cleaner works really well on all these surfaces. I usually vacuum every Saturday, and I'm always amazed at how much dust, dirt and pet hair it picks up every week." — Lauren Fansler, Editor
