Here’s why I’m always going to have a robot vacuum handy

Obviously, having a robot vacuum comes with some considerable perks that just make life better. Going about my day is only that little bit more pleasant while surrounded by clean floors. Walking around barefoot doesn't leave the soles of my feet darkened with dirt, and I'm not regularly faced with the discomfort of small debris building up on the bottom of my foot. And, if I'm being honest, I don't always get all the sand out of my backpack, shoes, or pockets after a day at the beach, but the vacuum takes care of that. But that's just what you'd get from regular vacuuming in general. Having a robot vacuum has had some bigger effects that can't go unmentioned.

Pet hair isn't the pest it once was

Even running vacuuming every weekend is hardly enough to keep up with all the animal hair in a household with several pets, especially if one of them is a long-hair cat or a shaggy dog. But, with a robot vacuum, I can schedule frequent cleanings to go around the apartment and keep the pet hair from accumulating. No more hair sticking to my feet when I get out of the shower and no more tufts blowing around the apartment freely, waiting for me to capture them when the weekend cleaning comes around. The robot vacuum just gets to it before it gets bad enough to notice.

No dust bunnies hiding under the furniture

A handheld vacuum can do a lot, but robot vacuums have an easier time going certain places. Normally, I'd move furniture around once in a while to do a deeper cleaning. In the meantime, an army of dust bunnies could amass underneath furniture. You might think, "out of sight, out of mind," but if you ever drop something and have it roll under the furniture, suddenly that army of dust bunnies is covering your stuff and whichever arm you reached in to extract the stuff with. All the worse if you have to feel around to find what you dropped. Since my robot vacuum can easily go under the couch and plenty of other furniture, it makes that area a regular part of its cleaning. Sometimes it even finds stuff I didn't know I'd dropped.

Cleaner air

It's lovely to see the sun filtering in through the window each morning, but not so much if there's a ton of dust and pet hair shimmering in that sunlight as it floats through the air. Having the robot vacuum clean so regularly has helped ensure all that hair and dust is simply gone, not building up and getting kicked up into the hair. Having a HEPA filter installed in the vacuum also helps trap smaller allergens, so the vacuum doesn't just kick a bunch of pollen and fine dust into the air as it cleans the floor. No more of that "just vacuumed" smell.

More time to focus on less-regular cleaning tasks

Cleaning the floor would normally be one of the most frequent chores around the house. But, with the robot vacuum mostly handling that all on its own, I can spend a bit more time tackling the cleaning tasks that would be more likely to get overlooked. The robot vacuum gets the kitchen floor while I degrease the knobs on the stove. The robot vacuum handles the bathroom floor while I get hair out of the drain before it has a chance to build up. The robot vacuum cleans under the couch while I get all the quarters out from under the cushions. Now, instead of the floors just getting cleaned, the whole apartment is getting cleaner.

The occasional fun watching the cats

It might not be their favorite thing, but it's a regular bit of entertainment to watch the cats struggle to decide how they feel about the robot vacuum. Sometimes they're curious, sometimes they ignore it like it's old news, and sometimes they play chicken with it, pretending like it's not coming straight for them.

All in all, the robot vacuum just makes things better.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
