Now that the holidays are done and gone, what do you do with all the leftovers? Cleaning up after the festivities can be quite a project. Here are some of our favorite finds to clean up our acts in 2017.
Everyone has been in and out of your home for months now. The floors are a mess, and you could really use a deep cleaning. From winter mud and snow and salt to all the random foods prep and holiday wrapping and decorations, there is just more mess then usual. The Shark Rocket Complete is beast of a vacuum, with two powered brush rolls to make sure all the debris is picked up. It’s good for hard floors or carpets, as well. The soft roll and gets into things by grabbing large, small, or stuck on items off hard flooring while grabbing large particles and piles on carpets. The second brush roll has a bristle head, which on hard flooring accelerates large, small, and stuck on particles into the vacuum while on carpet deep cleans and pulls stuck on and small particles into the vacuum. These two brush rolls working together make short work of just about any dry mess you can think of as well as regular vacuuming around the house. It really gets in there, and you can tell the difference. About $200 on http://direct.sharkclean.com
For those sealed hard floor messes which a vacuum isn’t built for, check out the Shark Genius Steam Pocket Mop System. This mop system is built to deep clean your floors using steam as the main agitator. The steam releases most messes and spills with minimal effort through the pad, lifting away the mess without you every having to touch it. The stem can also be delivered directly to the floor with the Steam Blaster, which was created for stuck on or greasy messes, where steam is applied directly to the mess and can be wiped away with the pad secondarily. The pad itself grabs 99.9% of common household bacteria (according to the manufacturer). The best part is the amazing clean you get- the second best is the hands off approach to cleaning it gives you. The pad detaches right into the laundry without ever having to get your hands dirty with a simple button push. That’s the third best part- no more pads to buy.

If you are looking to clean up your eating habits as well, you might want a Ninja. Not only useful, but it’s fun to mess around with. The Nutri Ninja Nutri bowl Duo is an all in one blender, fusion machine for food prep, and processor. It can break down whole foods, seeds, ice, nuts, and more. The dual usage for this machine will have you grabbing for it more often then you’d expect. Plus, like I mentioned- it’s fun. Addicting, even. The Nutrient & Vitamin Extraction and Pro Extractor Blades® Assembly makes amazing smoothies and shakes as well as pops and purees, whatever your pleasure might be. It can also make dough. The included recipe book is a great start for inspiration, and has some fun ideas as well. Once you get the hang of using these devices (which won’t take long) it will become second nature to grab fairly constantly. About $140 on Amazon.
The Ninja Coffee Bar System has become a fast favorite in our house, and completely wow-ing my very picky husband. If you are a coffee lover, or perhaps spend more time or money then you want to in a coffee house, this is a great way to keep more money in your wallet and time in your calendar. This is a full system that is neither so huge it takes up the entire counter, nor so expensive you will need a loan to purchase it. Better yet, it’s not complicated to use, and it doesn’t require the use of expensive and wasteful (and environmentally unfriendly) pods. Make multiple sizes, types, even iced coffees. It includes a milk frother (which you will love more then you think) and theNinja exclusive Café Forte to amplify the flavors of your drinks. It also comes with drink recipes, which are interesting to try. About $180 at http://direct.ninjakitchen.com
