Wouldn't it be great if we lived in an age where products took most of the work out of cleaning? Well guess what — we do! Now I'm not saying you won't have to do anything but push a button and let these things do the job — after all, it's not like we live in the age of The Jetsons (not yet anyway). However, these things will definitely cut cleaning time down significantly, and perhaps help you to not dread cleaning days as much. Plus most of them are super cute, so you won't hate having them in the house.
Here are 15 magical things that will help you tackle every annoying and/or forgotten cleaning project in the house (cough cough, the bathroom, cough cough).

Try saying that five times fast. This little thing might be my favorite on this list, because not only is it adorable, it can get into all those hidden, hard to reach corners of your home and dust the crap out of them. It has a timer and cleans in 15-minute intervals. All you do is take off the outer mop and wash clean.

A trash can that has motion sensors that open the lid for you, a vacuum in the base and even has Wi-Fi to alert you when it's trash day. Now if it could only walk outside and take itself out, it'd be perfect.
If you're like me and you find yourself mindlessly pacing around the house, try wearing these while you do it. You'll essentially be killing two birds with one stone — getting a little exercise and picking up some dirt.
OK, this one actually is like the robots they had on The Jetsons.
Never use Q-tips to clean your keyboard again. Get it on Amazon.
