Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair -- Don't Toss, May Be Reusable


The Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair is a nifty little product for picking up rampant shed fur, so we don't have to waste precious time vacuuming the furniture.

However, the manufacturer's instructions are to toss when through--wasteful and needlessly expensive. The hair collection container is held in place with pins, making it difficult to remove. Over at Consumerist a reader Jim came up with a solution:

Paying no heed to the package's warnings to "not try to empty or disassemble disposable sweeper", Jim found that, "if you hold the sweeper vertically and apply gentle, but firm, pressure to one of the rollers, it will pop out of its holder. You can then empty the catcher, carefully replace the roller and the sweeper will work like new!"

This trick is also reported in the Pledge Fabric Sweeper for Pet Hair reviews.

Automated Pet Hair and Dirt Removal -- Neato Robotic Vacuum Cleaner


The popular Roomba will soon have some competition. According to Priya Ganapati at Wired.com "despite a passionate community of users, Roomba has faced a few criticisms":

The gadget uses a randomized algorithm to clean a room, which has led to complaints that it doesn't always cover an area completely. Roomba has also suffered from a small bin that limits how much it can clean on a single battery charge. That also limits its ability to clean multiple rooms.

The new Neato Robotic Vacuum Cleaner is purportedly smarter than the Roomba. While the Roomba utilizes a zig zag pattern, the Neato cleans back-and-forth using mapping technology to determine the room's perimeter and locate walls and furniture up to 4 meters via a laser-guidance system, rather than through impact.

Dust-bin removal is out the back of the Roomba and from a relatively larger bin on the top of the Neato. Other Neato features are scheduling, detection of drop-offs and stairwells, and a low profile (less than four inches high) allowing it to clean under beds, sofas, and toe-kicks in the kitchen.

The Neato XV-11 all-floor vacuum system will be available for purchase in the U.S. this coming February 2010 priced at $399.
