Doing housework is an inevitable part of being an adult, and the average person spends about 690 hours a year doing household chores. Cleaning and other domestic tasks can take up a lot of time and energy, and it’s fair to say that most people don’t enjoy doing chores at all. In fact, a recent poll has found that housework often leads to disagreements within the home. Among those who were surveyed, 80 percent of couples said that they have frequent arguments about chores, and squabbles are usually about who’s going to do them or how tasks are supposed to be done. Fortunately, there are ways to restore peace in the home and make cleaning less of a hassle, and one way to do that is by using new technology that can help you efficiently clean and organize your abode. Here are the gadgets that will revolutionize the way you clean in 2020.
A smart robot mop
As innovative cleaning gadgets and systems are constantly being developed, home cleaning, as well as professional cleaning services, have evolved to become more environmentally friendly and effective. For instance, robot vacuum cleaners such as the Roomba, Robovac, and Deebot have become common fixtures in homes, and 89 percent of people who own a robot vacuum cleaner would recommend them to loved ones and friends. But to have sparkling and grime-free floors, why not add a smart robot mop to your cleaning arsenal? Gadgets such as the iRobot Braava Jet 240 has three modes so it can do wet mopping, damp sweeping, or dry sweeping, allowing you to clean your floors without having to lift a finger. Meanwhile, the Roborock S5 can be activated by voice control via Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, so you can clean up even if you’re away from home.
A smart toilet cleaner
Cleaning the toilet is perhaps one of those jobs that no one wants to do, but somebody has to do it. Instead of bickering with your loved ones over whose turn it is to clean the bathroom, you can use a smart toilet cleaner to sanitize your toilet bowl. The Shine Bathroom Assistant is voice activated via Alexa, and all you need to do is to place it on top of the toilet tank for it to work its magic. It allows you to do hands-free cleaning as it automatically sprays cleaner into the toilet after every flush, and it even deodorizes your bathroom after every use. The system’s AI even tracks water usage and alerts you if there are any leaks, helping you to save money on your water and plumbing bills.
A device that folds your clothes
If you absolutely have no time to fold your laundry, the FoldiMate can do it for you. This laundry folding device can fold an entire load in just four minutes, and it works best on shirts, pants, towels, and pillow cases. Though the FoldiMate doesn’t work quite as well on smaller items such as socks and underwear, using it can still benefit you in the long run if you’re a multitasker or if you’d rather do something else than fold clothes.
Smart gadgets can make a huge difference in the way you clean your home. For the ultimate in convenience, consider using some of these gadgets to make cleaning and organizing a cinch in 2020.
