TheJoyOfSummer/SpringCleaning2019

Whenever I visit my son in Atlanta, there is always Robo-Vacuum. Robo-Vacuum is on a schedule to clean the living room. My son sets it to wake him up work. My thought was always, "I want one of those!" My son advised me that they are not inexpensive.

I remember when computers were very expensive but time brought down the price. A few months ago, I found a Robo-Vacuum Sixty-Some Dollars. A few weeks ago, I purchased an upgraded Robo-Vacuum Three Hundred and some change. The two Robo-Vacuums are so cute together.

I am not a domestic Goddess like the more Virgo folks but those robotic vacuum cleans are going to make spring cleaning in the summer a whole lot more interesting. The fact that they are on a schedule simpifies it as well. I am placing the remote controller right next to Grumpy's picture. He loved his controllers when he was on this side.

The challenge is what do I these "two little darlings" and what time should I schedule them . I wish I could teach Alexis to get them started.

Bleach for the Kitchen Tiles and Murphy's Soap Oil for the wood floor in the Living Room.

But do they get in the corners? I hate vacuuming so they might be a godsend for me.

I bought one of the fairly inexpensive ones but have not tried it yet. You have sparked my interest....going to charge it up and see what it does this afternoon. Sand tracks in on my wood floors really bad. Maybe Little Bo will help keep them clean.

    Quoting Shartaun03:

It does get into hard to reach places even though corners might need a little help with a broom. It's great for me because I just don't have the flexibility that I used to. The fact that I can program the larger one to go automatically is awesome.

My brother-in-law is a techno-genius. In younger year, he first schooled at a high ranking school of elecronics in Chicago and eventuallly operated his own business, remaining in that line of business throughout his working years.

Now long retired, he is yet inclined/compelled to sample every new gadget that hits the market. Seven years ago, he and my sister purchased their first auto-vac. The trick is to keep it CLEAN. It has limited holding capacity, and like everything else on auto-pilot, that is easy to overlook.

This techno-genius has since gone back to an old-fashioned Hoover upright with an extended hose and attachments … same thing I use! The more things change, the more they stay the same. LOL

By the way, Murphy oil soap and bleach are staples in MY household as well, along with baking soda and vinegar. My sister still uses Pine-Sol which takes my breath away! E-gads!
