LEVOIT Vortex IQ 40 cordless stick vacuum review – the easiest vacuum I’ve ever used!

REVIEW – A cordless stick vac was not something I thought I’d ever need.  We have a LIDAR-guided robot vacuum that handles the task a few times a week, a more traditional upright vacuum for deep cleaning, and an older corded hand-held vacuum for spot cleaning.  So when the opportunity to review the Levoit cordless …

Roborock Dyad Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner review – Your floors will like you

REVIEW – Of all the gadgets I review, my wife prefers I review the ones that actually do something—like clean, for instance. She couldn’t care less about my audio fixation.
