1. Need a new quick Cordless Stick Vac for a lot of tile. Been thru cheaper Dirt Devils. Big Dyson is dragged out just when carpets are due.
2. Currently use the wider O'Cedar/Libman mopper types for dust bunnies--washable covers save a lot over Swiffers and you can sew extra.
3. H, always fascinated with new gadgets, bought a beastly Steamer but after 6 months hates some leaking and dragging it out. So I just spray and damp-mop, which doesn't do the tile grouting, mainly the sink area needs you on your knees for that.
4. Also, another when-I-get-to-it task is wiping down cupboards, what other than Murphy's?
5. Windows and screens....grrrh! in rain/pollen/mowing season.
6. I'm tired now..think I'll go cut out a Spring pattern, which qualifies as Spring Cleaning (closets) ....

If you're looking for a cordless stick vac, I recommend the Hoover Linx. I've had this vac since Nov and it's the best one I've used so far. It has a removable Lithium Ion battery with a separate charger, like my husband's power tools, which is nice because you don't have to plug in the vacuum. You can also buy an extra battery and swap them out if one isn't enough to get the job done. You get about 20 minutes on a charge. I have wood floors and lots of dog hair to pick up and this vac takes care of it.
Now for the cabnets... I've been using Rejuvenate once a year for the last 3 years. I buy it at Home Depot. It's described as a "restorer & protectant" and it does make the cabnets look better, but if you don't want them to look shiny, don't use this. We go off every summer and leave the house closed up and when I was using furniture polish on the cabnets, I would still see some mildew when we returned. That hasn't been a problem since using Rejuvenate.

Thanks, my DIL just got an Electrolux re-chargeable with detachable hand vac, so I'm waiting feedback on that, run around $90.

I don't want shiny cabinets (mine are that orangey-wood color) but want something that hopefully repels greasy grandkid fingers, always show when the sun shines in.

Repost, shouldn't have asked on busy Easter weekend!

I do love the Mrs. Meyer's concentrated cleaners, Basil is so refreshing!

Just saw an ad for a new Hoover Steam sweeper/Sanitizer?
But I think the more combo tasks, the more things to go wrong.

I love my Electrolux rechargeable. Use it more than my expensive Miele.
The Electrolux is easy to empty. I have cats and it picks up cat hair from low pile togs better than my Miele. You will need to clean the roller brush almost every time you empty the canister. The hand vac has a lot of power.

The burnt orange color is pretty. The design is very modern.

Love mine!

I have the Basil toilet bowl cleaner--the scent is SO WEIRD and un-bathroomy!! I will be trying something different next time!

We have an Electrolux - Ergo Rapido. We LOVE it. It's mostly used for dog hair pick up and coffee grind spills. Highly recommend. And the name is fun...he goes by "Ergo."

I love my Dyson so much. It sucks up so much dirt and I've never had an issue with it. It really helps with my allergies, and they truly live up to the hype and are worth the price. This one looks like it might be what you're looking for.

We have this Dyson in our RV and LOVE it!! I plan to get another one for home for in-between using the big Dyson! We travel with a small dog and this thing does an amazing job in picking up dog hair. We just spent 4 months in Florida on the beach and the amount of sand it picked up was astounding! We were also very pleased with how long it will run on a charge. This vacuum is a little higher in price than others but worth every penny, imo! (We've tried other brands and were not happy with them)

Still looking, new models keep coming out.
The Dyson is too expensive, as we spent much on a big Dyson.
Need a lite one for everyday pickups--instead of a broom--for lots of tile.
