However much we put off doing household chores, they still need to be done and sadly we can no longer wriggle our way out of them like we did as children.
There is one product currently on our radar that can make light work of cleaning the home, (and the car): The Vax H85-GA-B10 Gator Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner.
Why we rate it
Vax H85-GA-B10 Gator Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner is a compact and lightweight design, which is ideal for cleaning up those little messes that don’t warrant getting out your larger vacuum.

The pack includes a charger, as well as a retractable crevice tool so you can get into every nook and cranny where dirt and dust can hide.
This handheld cleaner can be used on furniture, as well as carpets, hard floors and in cars.
It costs £39.99 from Argos.
