About this book
Do you really think Martha Stewart never swept a little dust under the carpet seconds before guests arrived? Oh, how we’ve been damaged by the myth of perfectionism! We are slaves to microscopic specks of lint, hard-water smudges, and the relentless pursuit of dust bunnies. Brainwashed by Hollywood and slick photo spreads, we chase after unrealistic expectations. How to Cheat at Cleaning will change all of that. Part how-to bible and part liberating manifesto, this volume rewrites the housekeeping rules our mothers taught us. It does for housekeeping what Casual Friday did for office life. Learn the extreme shortcuts for cleaning your house from attic to basement. Learn about cutting-edge tools and technologies that will slash your housekeeping chores in half. Learn how to get family members–and even Santa Claus–to pitch in. And learn which backbreaking cleaning tasks you can walk away from forever. While most cleaning books are as dull as, well, dishwater, How to Cheat at Cleaning is a joy to read. Delivered in a swingy, conversational, irreverent style, this book is peppered with quick-read recurring boxes, including amusing anecdotes, easy cleaning formulas, great cleaning gear, cleaning emergencies, and eliminating dirt through design.

    Fights Fur Furiously

    We just got our . It was simple to setup and charged in about two hours. We have run it once downstairs and upstairs.THE PLANThe plan is to run it during the day upstairs and to run it at night downstairs. The first problem we noted is that the schedule only seems to allow one time per day. This is ok since we have to carry it upstairs for the day runs. So, we just start it as we live in the morning. When we return, we put on the charger and let it clean at 2AM downstairs.OBSERVATIONSThe upstairs (approx. 1000 sqft) is a combination of wood floors, tile in the bathrooms, scatter rugs (bath style and oriental). Roomba did a good job covering an awkward area. We captured a full bin of hair from the dogs. The only problem is that it got caught in the... 5/5 Jack V.

    Love it...wish I hadn't waited so long to get one.

    I don't have to vacuum anymore and my floors have never been so clean. I scheduled it to run every day. It is amazing how much dust and other debris this thing picks up. All it takes is a 5 minute clean up of the Roomba each day-dump the bin, shake out the filter and clean the 2 rollers. It runs just over an hour before going back to base to charge. I have a large house, I run it in the main living area each day, and I move it manually to other parts of my house about 2x a month. My father bought one instanty after seeing how well mine cleaned-he is very critical of everything, but has no complaints about his 650. My 3 year old daughter & I named it Rico-she loves watching daddy's "robot" run around the house. It is much quieter than a conventional vacuum-I can watch TV while it runs, but I schedule it to run after I leave in the morning.A couple of tips:Vacuum one time yourself before setting this thing loose-it makes a world of difference in the performance.Pick... 5/5 Rowe - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    After 7 months I STILL LOVE THIS LIL MACHINE

    I've been meaning to write a review on the Neato XV-21 pet vacuum since I got it but never got around to it. It's been 7 almost 8 months since I got him and I still love him its the best household appliance I have ever gotten and that includes my kitchen in stand mixer which comes in at a close second. Now for some details:I got Neato because I fractured my back and could not push the vacuum around or sweep easily. I would recommend him ( yes mine is a he yours might be a she but you'll have to get to know yours to find out. Ask nicely and maybe it will tell you.) for elderly or disabled people that have issues with those kind of tasks.I have 5 yes you heard right FIVE Pug dogs. If you have a Pug you know they shed enough fur each week to make up whole new Pugs, my husband jokes that that is how we've ended up with 5 they keep multiplying via furball reproduction.My house is 4200 square feet give or take.

    Love this vacuum

    As someone who has owned many models of the Roomba over the years it was time for another Robotic Vacuum. I have 3 dogs and 4 cats so I have constant fur balls and toy shreddings around my house. I have not been impressed with some of the newer Roombas compared to the older ones as believe it or not the newer versions would get stuck on rugs easier. I did some research since there are now many brands of Robotic vacuums on the market to choose from.I have tile throughout with occasional area rugs. I got my Neato last night and already I'm in love! Compared to the Roomba, it is smart! it scans my rooms, knows where to go, when it's time to charge it returns to it's base remembering where it left off. All the while it hasn't gotten stuck on anything and it's not constantly banging against my furniture and cabinets. It has suction which none of my roombas have ever had. Already between playing with it last night, and then again this morning I can see what a superior job it's... 5/5 Jchap - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The combination of an upright vacuum's beater bar with robotics

    I did not realize how big my XV-21 would be until the package arrived from Amazon. Unpacking it, I realized that the robot is essentially the base of an upright vacuum cleaner combined with suction pump, sensors, computer, and battery. The beater bar is as large and powerful as any upright vacuum cleaner. I think this explains why previous generation XVs got such great reviews, and those reviews drove me to pre-order the XV-21.Startup was fast; I just plugged in the dock to an wall A/C outlet, brought the robot near the dock, and discovered that the robot's batteries charge wirelessly. Very cool.After fully charged, I pushed a button on the robot, and it proceeded to clean one floor of my house, requiring several re-charges (it automatically returns to base when it needs to recharge).The robot is very user friendly. It tells you when it needs its dust bin cleaned, its brushes unclogged, when it is blocked, etc. It emits chirps to tell you when... 5/5 Michael R.
