4 Shopping Splurges You’ll Never Regret (And 4 You Probably Will)


A Dyson Vacuum

There’s no question—the rechargeable cordless V8 Absolute is a game changer.

A Winbot

It’s like a Roomba for your windows. Not kidding.

Ecovacs ($205)

An Awair

This dream device targets and filters out allergy triggers—from dust mites to VOCs—in your home.

An Electronics Cleaning Brush

Perfect for small crevices that always feel impossible to de-gunk like in between your keyboard keys…or your earbuds.

How to Clean Your Earbuds With a Toothbrush

A Sonic Scrubber

An Irobot Pool Cleaner

This gadget goes underwater to clean your pool from top to bottom, cutting through any dirt and algae that dares get in its path.

A Portable Sanitizing Wand

Simply wave it over anything grimy like your TV remote or children’s toys and a UV light will kill germs and odor-causing bacteria. Not bad.
