Wovida Cordless Stick Vacuum | $110 | Amazon
Heavy corded wall vacuum bad. Lightweight cordless stick vacuum good. Specifically, the Wovida Cordless Stick Vacuum, which is down to $110 at Amazon when you clip the coupon on the page. This high-suction vacuum cleans hardwood, pet hair, and more, plus you can detach the battery to charge separately from the stick. Just charge that up for a few hours and you’ll be ready for at least 40 minutes of full-throttle home cleaning action. I don’t want to paraphrase some of the techier details, so I’m quoting directly from the manufacturer here: “The [debris] will be filtered through a 2-stage cyclone system, a stainless steel strainer, a HEPA filter and a high-density sponge filter,” ensuring that the cleaning of the actual vacuum doesn’t cause any additional drama for you. Oh, and it converts to a handheld vacuum, and includes tools for corners and crevices, too.
