Spring cleaning isn’t just a chore; it’s more like a super chore. It’s the time when you’re supposed to flip your mattress, wash your window screens, and do a dozen other things on Martha Stewart’s list. That’s why we couldn’t help but notice some of the gadgets at the 2017 International Home and Housewares Show that promise to make cleaning a wee bit easier.
Check out our roundup below, even if none of them will help you muck out the gutters.
If a vacuum company can make a hair dryer, why can’t a hair-care company make an iron? CHI is best known for its straighteners and other hair-focused products, but at the housewares show, its motto was “from hair to wear.”
In addition to its new line of clothes irons, there was a garment bag on display. The bag has a built-in steamer to get wrinkles out of your clothes. Just pour water in the cup, put one or two items inside, zip it up, and wait 10 minutes. You then leave the collapsible bag open to dry. There are other hands-free steamers, but this is one of the more storable options we’ve seen. Price and availability are to be determined.
