The Inventory Gift Guide For The Cleaning Robot Enthusiast

Cleaning gifts are tricky … there’s such a high risk of disappointing, or worse, offending someone. I hope this goes without saying but just in case, let’s say it: Please don’t give someone a mop as a gift. Buuuuut! You can absolutely give someone a robot mop as a gift. You know why? Because robot mops are cool. As are these other cleaning robots, that will take care of chores from pool cleaning to doing the windows.

There are other robot mops, including ones that are combo vacuum/mops and wow, is that ever convenient, right? But this little pal is a favorite because of its small size, and ability to shift between dry mopping, regular mopping and heavy duty mopping.
