Cleaning the house has taken on a whole new importance since we began conducting our entire lives in them.
From the mess that homeschooling creates, to the crumbs left from night after night of Netflix watching and the al desko lunches that have become the norm since we set up office in the spare room, there is a new type of dirt to contend with.
We're no longer just getting out the vacuum for a weekly whip around, but instead are more frequently experiencing the hassle of having to unplug the vacuum to reach the other side of the room and lugging it up the stairs.
So, if you've also discovered you need a whole new level of flexibility and efficiency, you may want to upgrade to a cordless vacuum cleaner.
Some popular options from big brands will set you back between £300 and £500.
But if you're in need of a more budget-friendly option, let us introduce you to Bosch's Series 2 Readyy'y BBHL2D18GB Cordless Vacuum Cleaner.
It may have a long name, but it makes short work of your cleaning and costs less than £100 for a limited time only.
The handy gadget is currently on sale at Currys PC World, reduced from £199 to only £99, and here’s exactly why you should invest.
Why we rate it:
Firstly, the ability to easily go between the handstick vacuum and detachable hand held unit, means that whether we’re tidying up after the kid’s arts and crafts session (aka homeschooling) or want to do a total clean of the house, we’ve got the flexibility to do both with ease.
Plus, the motorised power brush and efficient air guide system means you can see immediate results without having to go over and over the same spot.
Not only does the lightweight and compact cordless design mean that vacuum cleaning will no longer feel like a hellish chore, but it's also easy to empty the dust box directly into the bin.
Charging is quick and easy too. Five hours charging offers up to 40 minutes running time, which you'll quickly find is more than enough time to do the whole house now you're not lugging around a heavy and awkward eyesore.
What the reviews say:
“Bought this for my daughter for ease of use as her Dyson is bulky and awkward to get out. She loves it and have now ordered one for myself."
“Very easy to use. Like how easy it is to clear the brush of hairs. Lightweight which is important to me. Highly recommend.”
“So easy to use and so lightweight just what I needed for quick tidy up."
"Lightweight. Suitable for all surfaces. Purchased for an elderly couple who adore it."
"It is so light it makes it easy to carry around and the fact you can detach the small handheld part is excellent."
