Spring is a magical time of year full of color, sunshine, and newly budding flowers. This is the season of new beginnings and boundless joy. And amidst the blossoms and greenery, our sunny spring spirit can be dampened with the tiresome task of spring cleaning.

Let's face it, while tidying up is crucial for our well-being and the freshness of our homes, mustering the time and energy for a thorough cleanse can feel like a daunting chore. We’re busy people. There are days when we’re consumed with other activities – watching the kids, walking the dogs, working, driving, cooking – the list goes on. It can be difficult to fit spring cleaning into the schedule.

Luckily, the future is now. We don’t actually have to clean our homes to have a clean home. What if we told you there’s a way to have a tidy house without having to lift a finger? Well, mostly! There are tools we can use that do the work for us. We’ve put together a list of easy spring cleaning hacks to save time and energy while leaving you with a squeaky-clean home!

Prepare to be floored by your clean floors.

Say goodbye to that loud, house-shattering vacuum noise and the time-consuming chore of getting every last inch of carpet clean. Sit back, relax, read a book, listen to a podcast – it doesn’t matter, because your floors will be cleaning themselves!

A Roomba can map out the layout of your home and maneuver its way across the floors, leaving no trace of dirt or dust behind. The New York Times has deemed the Roborock Q5 Robot Vacuum Cleaner and the Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S MAX to be the most efficient robot vacuums and they’re loved by homeowners. These little, circular vacuum disks are the perfect way to keep the floors nice and tidy without having to lift a finger.

Another multi-tasker that floors us.

The ultimate trick to make cleaning go by faster is to do everything at once. Unfortunately, we only have two hands which often slows us down. But with a Tineco Floor ONE S3 wet/dry vacuum, you can vacuum and wash the floors at the same time. Your floors will shine from one thorough round of cleaning with a multi-purpose vacuum cleaner, leaving no piles of dust and dirt lingering in the corners.

A mess-friendly mop.

Scrubbing the floors takes all the fun out of spilling, doesn’t it? Luckily, there are ways to have your cake and eat it, too. With a spin mop system, you can make all the messes you want and spend less time cleaning them up. The mop is operated by pumping the handle up and down, which causes the mop to spin on its own, extracting the soap and water from the mop head into the bucket. You just wait and your hands stay clean and dry. The bucket also comes with a pedal that can be pressed to spin the mechanism until the mop absorbs enough soap and water to properly wash the floors.

Retire that fly swatter and relax.

Bugs will make their way into your home whether you like it or not, ready to spoil your indoor fun. We can offer some help. Wondercide’s Flying Insect Trap is the hands-free, effortless way to take care of pesky insects indoors.

This nifty mechanism is designed to attract, trap, and kill mosquitoes, moths, fruit flies, and gnats with zero chemical insecticides, so it’s pet and people friendly. The trap attracts flying insects via the Blu-V™ (blue UV) light (no zaps or odors!), then the sticky cartridge traps them.

The beauty of this product is how self-sufficient it is. Plug it in and let the Flying Insect Trap go to work. The trap will work 24/7 and when it’s full, it’s easy to replace the cartridge. You won’t even need to touch the bugs to do it. With its 90-degree design, the trap is built to fit any outlet. You can station it in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, closet, garage, or anywhere that calls for a cleaning. Flying Insect Trap is the easy way to get rid of indoor flying insects.

Say goodbye to scooping.

It feels too good to be true, but self-cleaning litter boxes make life so much easier. Some are better than others, like the Whisker Litter-Robot 4. No more will you have to hold your nose with one hand and a fist full of cat litter in the other. Your kitty can do its business while you can mind your own.

We love that this Litter-Robot comes fully assembled. With a simple plug-in and the Whisker App, which you can access via the QR code on the Robot, you’ll be able to set up your device and have it self-cleaning in no time. The open, circular structure of the litter box has been proven to entice cats to venture in, making it easy to train them to use it. After each use, the Litter-Robot 4 replaces the litter using cutting-edge litter-sifting technology.

Another highly rated self-cleaner is the PuraMax Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box, which is especially useful for households with multiple cats. This device is also controlled by an app and is effective in cleaning out the litter box while reducing odors and providing a safe, inviting space for your cat.

No more gross microwave.

We’ve all had nuclear explosions in our microwaves, with debris of soup staining each wall. With the Angry Mama microwave cleaner, you can easily steam clean the microwave without having to get your hands dirty. All that’s required of you is to twist off her hair, add vinegar and water (and lemon juice for a pleasant scent), microwave her for 7 minutes, and she’ll get the place clean. After the timer goes off, leave the Angry Mama in there to cool for about 2 minutes, then remove her by the arms, which are designed to stay cooler. Easier microwave cleaning, so you can stay cooler, too.

Enjoy an effortless sparkling window.

How much prettier is a view through crystal clear windows that you didn’t have to clean yourself? With the Wellbot Hobot 298 window cleaner, you can relax on the couch while your windows endure a nice, thorough scrubbing. The Wellbot converts water into mist which prevents any streaks or dust from accumulating on the windows. When attached to the window, this device can hit all of the high corners and out-of-reach stains.
