Cleaning a neglected shower is just about the worst household chore there is. But if you can spare an extra minute after your daily shower, you can eliminate soap scum before it becomes stuck to tiles like super glue by simply wiping down the walls with this handy squeegee, designed to hang on your curtain rod or shower head.
Oh, sure, that fancy glass decanter and that decorative vase look great on the dinner table. But when it comes time to clean them out, it’s all about soaking and hoping those stains magically dissolve on their own. The $US9 Cuisipro, though, lets you take a more active approach to cleaning awkwardly-shaped containers — by using a small magnetic scrubber and wand to reach every last nook and cranny.
Following hot on the heels of the Rydis H67 released just a few months ago, Moneual has revealed an updated version of its Roomba challenger with the Rydis H68 that introduces a capacious built-in reservoir — the largest on the market it claims — for holding cleaning agents, and a new system for more efficiently cleaning a room. Using 42 omni-directional sensors the bot automatically scans a room, tracks its own position, and then maps out the most efficient route that covers as much of the floor as possible.

That’s when you need to call in the robots, particularly Sinfonia’s new cleaner that excels at squeegeeing at awkward angles.
If you’ve got a mix of hard and carpeted floors in your home that you just don’t feel like cleaning, you usually have to rely on two separate cleaning bots to get the work done. But you can write your Roomba and Scooba a letter of recommendation and send them on their way now that Moneual’s new Rydis H67 promises to tackle both tasks with one machine.
In a breakthrough that could vastly improve life for college students — and their parents — around the world, Tide has developed what could very well be the world’s first self-cleaning T-shirt.
Even if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty now and then, some tasks involve harsh and dangerous chemicals you should probably avoid contact with. And while it doesn’t guarantee you won’t catch a whiff of a fume here or there, the Glove Bucket does provide a simple and safe way to keep harsh cleaning agents off your skin.
