Living Without's Favorites: Your New BFF
Need to reduce the allergens (dust, pollen, cat dander, dog hair) in your home? Start the New Year coming home to a freshly vacuumed house every day—with no effort on your part. Neato XV-21 from Neato Robotics is a dream come true: a robotic vacuum that works on all floor types. No random patterns here. Neato’s laser eye sees 360 degrees, maps out your room and then methodically vacuums in overlapping lines, turning corners and avoiding furniture. When finished, it returns to its docking station. Spot clean where the dog sleeps. Set it for daily vacuuming of one room or the whole house. Company coming? Neato works while you prepare the meal. Pricey but worth the investment.
