4 Household Cleaning Tools Everyone Needs

Share this article

When shopping for new house cleaning tools and equipment, it can be overwhelming. There are so many house cleaning tools, machines and products, so how do you know which are the best cleaning tools for you? It’s a question we at BISSELL® set out to answer every day. We know there’s no one tool that will be perfect for every person and every task. And if we could, we’d recommend all of our products! They’re all great in so many ways, but at the same time, we have a lot of products and this post could become overwhelming if we recommended each one separately. So, as the experts in home cleaning we were able to narrow our list down to four house cleaning tools that we think everyone should have in their home. Each of these four products can be used in multiple ways, so you don’t have to switch tools while performing different cleaning tasks.

1. ICONpet™ Cordless Vacuum

Our ICONpet™ Cordless Vacuum sets the bar pretty high. This cordless stick vacuum is our best cordless pet hair management system for homes with pets and we’re pretty proud of it. It’s engineered by pet parents to tackle pet hair everywhere around your home and car. The high-quality design is apparent in every aspect of this vacuum, starting at the foot where the LED headlights lead the way. If you’ve never had a vacuum with headlights prepare yourself. They illuminate dirt and debris you could never have imagined was in your home, and it’s scarily satisfying. Features like the patent-pending Tangle-Free Brush Roll, specialized pet tools and a Dirt Tank with CleanSlide Technology™ make it the vacuum for pet homes. Plus, our ICONpet™ Cordless Vacuum can be used as a stick vacuum, a high reach hand vacuum and a regular hand vacuum – making three machines in one. That versatility really comes in handy when cleaning spaces like high corners of a room and upholstery around your living room.

2. CrossWave® Cordless Multi-Surface Wet Dry Vac

Our second recommendation holds a special place in our hearts, too. We changed the world of cleaning when we introduced our first CrossWave® in 2016. In the last three years, we’ve continued improving this innovative machine that vacuums and washes at the same time. Our most recent updates are on full display in our CrossWave® Cordless Multi-Wet Dry Vac. We took our beloved machine and cut the cord! Now you can vacuum and wash your hard floors and area rugs for up to 25 minutes without worrying about switching from outlet to outlet. Plus, CrossWave® Cordless can pick up wet and dry messes on your floors, making it one of the most versatile cleaning machines BISSELL® has to offer.

“This is the greatest cleaning machine I have ever had. I have a white Labrador, hair is constant, the Cordless Multi-Surface Wet Vac is awesome. It vacuumed and washed my tile floors all in one action. Floors were cleaned and shined. Thank you to the engineers who created this.”*

3. SpotBot® Pet Portable Carpet Cleaner

You’ve heard of portable carpet cleaners, but what about a portable carpet cleaner that does the work for you? That’s exactly what the SpotBot® Pet Portable Carpet Cleaner does. You can use it to remove set in spots and stains on carpets and area rugs by just pushing a button and walking away, letting it do all the work for you. All you have to do is make sure there’s formula in your tank and let this machine go to work for you! It automatically sprays, scrubs and suctions the stain away. It also comes with an on-board hose and tool, so you can use it on hard-to-reach areas like in your car and on other upholstery in your home.

“I love that you can place it over a spot and turn on then walk away to do something else while it cleans.”* -Dee, 5-star review

4. Woolite® INSTAclean™ Pet Stain Remover

We also offer cleaning products that are manually powered, like our cleaning sprays and foams. There are different ones for different stains, but one of our favorites is Woolite® INSTAclean™ Pet Stain Remover. This stuff can permanently remove tough, set-in stains like grease, fruit juice, dirt, blood, feces, vomit, and more in 30 seconds or less! It goes to work right when the formula hits the stain.

“Works better than anything else I have tried for cleaning pet stains - just cleaned dried cat vomit that nothing else I have tried would - saved me having to buy 4 new cushions!”* -John, 5-star review
