If you saw me on KTLA this morning in Los Angeles, I was showing off my favorite gadgets and tools for spring cleaning my technology... and using technology to spring clean! Here are my must-haves to get things ship shape this season:
Looj from iRobot $299
Cleaning your gutters is messy... and dangerous. Perfect job for a robot! Cleans all the dirt, leaves and grime out of there, breaks apart clogs, and then you send it back to it’s original startpoint and pick it up.
Scooba from iRobot $279
Who wants to clean their bathroom floor? Not me. The Scooba's hygenic clean water/dirty water chambers make it even more sanitary than a mop, plus navigation technology means it never gets stuck in a corner, falls off an edge or misses a spot.
UV Cell Phone Sanitizer from Violight $49.95
Cellphones are a breeding ground for germs and bacteria... and they spend a lot of time near our face. Ultra Violet rays disinfect your phone in all it's nooks and crannies, along with anything else you can fit in the tray, like headphones or an MP3 player.
Washable Keyboard from Logitech $39.99
If you ever eat at your desk, or are prone to spills, this keyboard is for YOU (and by you, i mean me as well). You can scrub this durable keyboard in a sink of water... it's completely waterproof.
Fuzzy Wuzzy Microfiber Mitt from The Container Store $5.99
This one mitt can dust your whole house— you can backhand the dust with the chenille side, pulling dust and cobwebs from corners, and the smooth side buffs and polishes. It’s particularly good for dusting anything you don’t want to use chemicals on, like TVs, computer screens, and more.
Plug Hub from Quirky $24.99
It's, like, a jungle of wires under my desk. The Plug Hub keeps things orderly, with a spot for my power bar and an enclosure that brings all my wires down to the floor in an orderly fashion.
Doxie Go from It's Apparent: $199
Time to get rid of those photos lying around and paper piles on your kitchen counter. This little scanner can travel to any room in the house, and store scans for later. Or the wireless option means you can scan on the go and your documents will magically appear on your smartphone or tablet as you go.
