37 Creative Ways to Clean

From Wall-Crawling Robotic Cleaners to Microber-Based Vacuums

— May 6, 2015 — Eco
As lives get busier, it's only natural that designers and brands would turn to technology to come up with creative ways to clean the home more efficiently. The Roomba opened up new autonomous alternatives that didn't even require people to be in the home to tidy it up while other companies simply honed existing products to make them more effective.

Now mobile devices are playing a huge part when it comes to creative ways to clean. Whether that means keeping people organized through reminders or connecting them with unique businesses at a push of a button, these apps are filling the untidy gap rapidly. In addition to that, people can enjoy more sophisticated cleaning capabilities in general including ultraviolet light and more.
