Portable and powerful, the Brigii Mini Vacuum is perfect for quick cleanups just about anywhere. The 2500-mAh lithium-ion battery provides up to 20 minutes of cleaning for messes around your home, car and office and only needs four hours to be fully charged via USB (a light on the device will turn green when it's ready to go). For such a small, lightweight frame (it’s literally the size of a water bottle and weighs just one pound), it has a powerful 80-watt motor and can provide 4Kpa suction, meaning it can easily pick up dust, hair and small debris. But what makes this vacuum so unique is that it’s actually a three-in-one tool: a mini vacuum cleaner, an air duster and a hand pump.
At just 1.4 pounds, the Shark WANDVAC combines lightweight portability with the suction power of a high-speed brushless motor. It features a tapered nozzle for easy debris and dust pickup and comes with two accessories — a duster crevice tool and a multi-surface pet tool — for tackling pet hair, upholstery and tight spaces. Without its attachments, we found it works best on hard surfaces (like hardwood floors) and low-pile rugs or upholstery. You’ll want to use the attachments for higher-pile rugs and softer fabrics to really pull up the dirt locked in the fibers. Our favorite feature is the one-touch debris-emptying system that makes cleanup a breeze. It runs for almost 10 minutes on a full charge and takes less than three hours to juice back up (which is a much faster charging time than most cordless models). Although it’s small and takes up little space, it doesn’t conveniently mount to the wall. Luckily, the device itself is sleek and attractive enough to leave out in the open if you need to. Plus, we love that the charging dock offers onboard accessory storage — no stray or misplaced attachments!
Giving your car an interior detail has never been so cheap! The THISWORX Car Vacuum is a powerful, little vacuum cleaner dedicated to your car — and it costs less than $42. The compact, lightweight (only 2.4 pounds!) vacuum is easy to use and ready to pick up all the dust, drive-thru food spills and kid snack crumbs you can throw at it. While it’s not battery-powered or cordless, it does have a lengthy 16-foot cord that plugs right into your car’s 12-volt auxiliary outlet to run for as long as you need it. Our tester claims it tackled months of leaves, dirt and Goldfish buildup with ease, although it’s much better suited for maintaining a clean car versus tackling huge interior messes. It’s even easy to store right in your car and comes with a handled, zippered storage case. Plus, it includes three attachments: a flathead hose for hard-to-reach areas; an extension tube for under seats, cracks and crevices; and a brush head for carpets and upholstery. (It’s great for getting dog hair off upholstered seats.) When you’re finished vacuuming, simply empty the dustbin and use the included filter brush to remove any excess debris from the filter. (This will also help extend the life of your filter). Whether you have messy kids or pets or simply like to maintain a clean car interior, this tiny but mighty vacuum will get the job done — and done well.
Keyboard crumbs and desktop debris are no match for this tiny-but-mighty portable vacuum cleaner. The ODISTAR Desktop Vacuum features a powerful built-in rechargeable battery with up to 400 minutes of continuous cleaning time after a 2-3-hour charge. (The manufacturer does recommend using it for less than 10 minutes at a time to avoid damage.) The USB cable allows it to charge from just about anywhere, and its small footprint is perfect for storing in a desk drawer or right on your desktop. Its lightweight, simple design is part of its charm and why it made our list. The dustbin is easy to empty, and it even comes with a cleaning brush to help clear the bin if anything gets stuck inside. Since the bin is small, our tester noticed that debris can pop out of the suction hole if it gets too full, so it’s best to empty it frequently and after each cleaning session. We also found that the vacuum works better on smooth surfaces like laptops, keyboards and desktops versus mouse pads and desk mats.
The Roomba 694 boasts Wi-Fi connectivity, so all you have to do is download the iRobot HOME app and schedule cleanings as you see fit. We can already imagine all the free time you'll get back when you come home to floors that have basically swept themselves!
Offering powerful pet hair pickup with an affordable price tag, the Bissell Cleanview Pet Upright Vacuum conquers pet messes on hardwood, carpet, vinyl and tile with ease. The triple-action brush roll lifts, loosens and removes embedded pet hair, and its soft bristles work gently on hard surfaces to remove fine dust and debris while also keeping it contained with scatter-free technology.
At just 2.1 pounds, this cordless vacuum from Shark is the lightest one we recommend. Its weight and slim design make it incredibly easy to maneuver in every configuration. Our tester found that it's compact enough to get those hard-to-reach places like under a nightstand, bed or TV stand where an upright vacuum is too bulky to fit. For such a compact, lightweight vacuum, it works surprisingly well on pet hair, too.
This eufy by Anker stick vacuum is a great option for a budget-friendly Dyson dupe. Our tester compared it to her Dyson stick that's a V7 model for a side-by-side comparison. The eufy's battery life lasts about 40 minutes, the dust bin is on the larger side at .17 gallons and the vacuum is lightweight and relatively easy to maneuver.
This isn't like any traditional mop-and-bucket situation you've tried before. The O-Cedar EasyWring features a refillable, machine-washable microfiber pad that effortlessly glides across any floor surface, picking up dirt, dust and grime in its path. A foot pedal-powered bucket system quickly wrings out the dirty mop head so that you never have to touch it. Because microfiber dries faster than cotton, the mop head doesn't leave floors soaking wet. Microfiber also does a better job of picking up and holding anything the vacuum leaves behind, resulting in a deeper clean.
Wool dryer balls help keep your clothes soft and reduce static and wrinkles, but unlike most dryer sheets, wool dryer balls made from 100-percent wool do not contain synthetic ingredients or built-in fragrance. The balls also help “fluff” clothes better, meaning they can reduce drying time by up to 25 percent and cut down on the time you have to run your dryer. For small or medium loads, use three balls, and for large loads, use five to six balls at a time. Most wool dryer balls claim to last for at least 1,000 drying cycles, so you can reuse them for at least two to four years.
At under $100, this budget-friendly, top-rated air purifier from Levoit is our top overall pick and will meet most consumers' needs for use in a small- to medium-size bedroom, office or living room. This purifier has a three-stage filtration system consisting of a pre-filter, a HEPA filter and a high-efficiency activated carbon filter to capture allergens, pet hair, dander, smoke, mold, odor and large dust particles as well as airborne contaminants as small as .3 microns.
For a great all-around purifier, this Blueair Blue 311 Auto is our top pick. Designed for small to medium rooms, this purifier uses HEPASilent dual filtration technology, plus a fabric pre-filter that's machine washable to trap smoke, dust, viruses, pet dander and light household odors.
This Blueair Blue 211+ Auto model operates the same way as our best overall pick, with the same one-touch control and four mode options, but it's rated for spaces up to a whopping 2,640 square feet — it can quickly clean spaces around 550 square feet in about 12.5 minutes, but it can clean up to 2,640 square feet in 60 minutes on boost mode.
What the ASAKUKI diffuser lacks in appearance, it more than makes up for in performance. The gigantic 500ml tank allows this diffuser to pump out a steady stream of mist nearly all day. There are quite a few performance options, too, ranging from a continuous aromatherapeutic mist with color-changing LED lights to a timed mist without lights. Choose between a 60-minute, 120-minute or 180-minute timer, or let it run continuously until the tank is empty. A gentle or high-powered misting function humidifies the air in tandem with the aromatherapy feature.
If you're wanting to spend less than $40, the Pure Enrichment MistAire Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier is a good option for a basic model. Its 1.5-liter tank will cover most small rooms and runs for 16 hours on continuous mist, meaning it can work well through the night. The tank is easily removable and the humidifier comes with a brush to tackle all the nooks and crannies for a deeper clean. There’s an automatic shut-off feature that ensures it won’t short-circuit once the water runs out. It has an optional night light and a 360-degree nozzle that allows you to point it where you like.
Stasher’s bags feature a patented Pinch-Loc technology and are constructed of durable toxin-free silicone. Since they’re heat-safe up to 400 degrees, dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe and freezer-safe, you can use them for just about anything. They come in several fun colors and five sizes: pocket, snack, sandwich, half-gallon and stand-up.
You’ll never want to leave home again without this ultra-convenient collapsible water bottle. The BPA-free silicone bottle is dishwasher safe, extends to hold 20 ounces and collapses between use for easy storage in your tote or attached to your backpack.
Storage container lids are the bobby pins of the kitchen. If you don’t keep on top of them, they will grow legs and run away without an ounce of remorse. Our advice? Corral your flight-risk storage lids in one location with the YouCopia StoraLid system. Perfect for deep drawers or cabinets, the YouCopia Storalid features five adjustable dividers and two side handles for easy maneuvering.
Black Food is filled with a collection of not just recipes, but essays, stories, poems, art and even a meditation practice from Black creators. Bryant Terry, James Beard and NAACP Image award-winning chef and author of several cookbooks including Afro-Vegan, serves as editor for the compilation.
The K-Elite is a smart upgrade from the favorite K-Classic. We love this model because it comes with all the necessary programmable functions, as well as five brew sizes for coffee, hot cocoa, tea and iced beverages. You can easily make a strong brew when you're looking for something bold, or press the "Iced" button and relax with a refreshing cup of iced coffee in less than a minute. There's even a hot water option so you can quickly make instant noodles, soups and oatmeals. Plus, there's a 75-ounce removable water reservoir that allows you to brew up to eight cups between refills. Talk about efficiency!
Limited storage space shouldn’t come between you and crispy, air-fried foods. The Dash AirCrisp Air Fryer is a small-yet-mighty machine that comes with adjustable time settings, auto-off technology and temperature dials to achieve the perfect fry every time. Plus, its compact size makes it easy to store in your kitchen cabinets or pantry between use.
Make sparkling water with the push of a button with the SodaStream Terra Sparkling Water Maker. This starter kit includes your sparkling water maker, one 60L Co2 cylinder, a dishwasher-safe bottle and one bubly drops flavor.
Seen here in a classic cognac leather, this sleek sofa from Amazon’s Rivet line is a popular choice for buyers as the warm color fits in with most interiors and can be easily wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth — perfect for the occasionally messy pooch.
Tuft & Needle is our go-to retailer for mattresses with foam layers, plush support and antimicrobial protection. With three foam layers total, Mint uses two layers of T&N Adaptive® foam designed to help you get your best possible sleep. Lastly, HeiQ NPJ03 is included in the cover to protect your new mattress from harmful microbes that can affect its lifespan.
The Casper Original Foam mattress is the perfect combination of support and cooling. ZonedSupport has three areas of targeted support for proper spinal alignment. Soft foam around the shoulders provides more relief to the upper body. Firmer foam under the hips, waist and lower back help align your spine. This premium foam is plush yet resilient and conforms to your body to relieve pressure. The durable base foam prevents sinking and sagging and supports the whole body. The eco-friendly cover is made with recycled materials and easily zips off.
A king-size mattress that won't break the bank? We tried this best-selling green tea-infused memory foam mattress from Zinus. Beyond the attractive price point, several other factors led us to this particular Zinus mattress model. It features odor-repellent green tea and natural charcoal foam layers that help keep things fresh and clean for longer. Plus, its multiple layers of memory and comfort foams provide supple support for sleeping, lounging and more.
Good sheets range anywhere from 200 to 800 thread count, and these ultra-soft 400-thread-count cotton sheets are pure perfection.
Get the plushness of down without the actual feathers with a down alternative pillow. Our tester has been sleeping soundly on the Original Casper Pillow for five years, and even after trying other competitive options, she still preferred this one. Ultimately, Casper Original's easy-cleaning feature and pillow-in-pillow design made it stand out. A breathable percale weave cotton cover allows for better airflow to keep you cool, and the inner polyester microfiber fill offers adaptive support for any sleep position you end up in. Our tester is a side and stomach sleeper and loved how the pillow adjusted to her changing needs, even through two pregnancies. Basically, this pillow offers the personalized comfort of an adjustable fill pillow without the mess of storing excess fluff.
If you're tight on space for guests and tight on space for extra linens storage, an air mattress with built-in pillows is ideal. The elevated bar means you don't need to put out extra pillows but guests still get that stacked pillow feel. This Intex is under $75 and backed by more than 18,000 five-star reviews on Amazon.
This Ecobee Lite Smart Thermostat offers all of the great benefits of the traditional Ecobee, minus voice control capabilities. If voice control isn't important to you, cutting out this feature cuts the cost down and makes this pick a great overall value. The Ecobee Lite doesn't come with a sensor, though you can still buy them separately and use them with this model, but if you live in a small home, you probably don't need extra sensors.
If we were to rank one DIY unit as best overall, it would be SimpliSafe. It's so good because it's so intuitive. Even if you're not a tech person and you don't have smart accessories in your home, you'll be fine setting up this system. It's not the cheapest, but it's also not the most expensive. For less than $300, you get both entry and motion sensors and there's no contract required.
Basic, straightforward options, reliable connection and a user-friendly app make this Kasa Smart Plug our top pick. It's priced right for tech-curious homeowners who want to dip their toes into the smart home world without going overboard.
