Do you ever wish your house would clean itself? Here’s a list of the best house cleaning tools, gadgets and devices that will practically clean your house for you! If you’re like me, this cleaning tools list will make your life SO MUCH easier.
I’ll let you in on a little secret. Or maybe it’s not a secret. Anyway, here it is.
I HATE cleaning. With a passion!
Maybe it’s because it’s so boring. Or maybe it’s because I’m allergic to dust and it makes me sneeze. Maybe I’m just really, really lazy.
I don’t mind cooking. I don’t mind grocery shopping. I don’t even mind doing laundry, although I’m not crazy about folding it and putting it away.
But I absolutely detest cleaning the house!

Best house cleaning tools for floors
If you have pets who shed, you need this broom. It’s made of rubber and gathers the fur and hair very effectively. This must-have cleaning tool works on both hard floors and carpets. The squeegee side is great on carpets and balls up the fur and hair so you can remove it from the carpet fibers.
While it’s great for picking up the fur and hair, it’s not the broom to get all the dirt particles off of your floor. We use our robot vacuum for that.
Smart Touchless Garbage Trash Bin – 1.3 Gallon Indoor Automatic Waste Can W/Motion Sensor Lid, Built-in Dirt Vacuum
This amazing 2-in-1 cleaning gadget has a motion sensor that automatically opens the trash can AND a built-in dirt and dust vacuum that will suck in all the dirt you swept up with your FURemover Pet Hair Removal Broom. This is truly a no hands required cleaning tool.
Dirt and debris get sucked directly into the trash can, which can be emptied into a trash bag. It’s one of the best house cleaning tools for pet owners.

We have this robot vacuum and it’s one of the best products that make cleaning easier! While this cleaning device doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the more expensive models, the price made it easily accessible for me. This cleaning tool works on both hard floors and carpet and is a great cleaning tool for bad backs.
The charge is good for just over an hour, which allows plenty of time to go through the living and dining rooms and the kitchen. We have a dog who sheds like crazy, so we usually quickly sweep with the FURemover Pet Hair Removal Broom first so we don’t have to empty the dirt collection bin too often.
This cleaning gadget does a great job of cleaning the floors and I don’t have to do anything except empty it and charge it. Oh, and sometimes help it get unstuck. We will never be without one again. Now there are even models that empty themselves!
This robot mop is the automated version of a Swiffer WetJet, except you don’t have to move it around. It can do that on its own. It’s a simple and small cleaning device for light to medium dirt. It’s one of my favorite new cleaning tools. The only thing you have to do is fill this cleaning gadget with warm water, put on a clean pad and let it do its thing.
The iRobot Braava jet 240 Superior Robot Mop works on tile and other hard floors. It takes about 2-3 hours to charge and lasts for just under 2 hours. Don’t be tempted to use your own cleaner. The pads have a cleaner on them and excess liquid can result in streaks.
This is one of the best home cleaning tools for someone who HATES mopping, like me! It gives a more thorough cleaning than the iRobot Braava jet 240 Superior Robot Mop with minimal effort. It’s easy to fill and to power on and off.
The reusable pads are thick, get the job done well and don’t leave streaks. It now only takes 15 minutes to clean the floors instead of the 45 minutes it used to take with a microfibre pad mop. This household cleaning tool is a must-have if you have pets that constantly track dirt through the house.
