Before the Covid-19 pandemic, you should have already been keeping your home spick and span. But if you’re one of the few who often finds themselves slacking off when it comes to cleaning, surely staying clean and healthy have shot up on your priority list over the past year. Now more than ever, it’s crucial to have highly reliable cleaning supplies and appliances on hand for regular cleanings, rather than taking them out once a year.
Thanks to the Covid-19 virus, we’ve also jumped on having smarter appliances as well as sanitising products in order to keep our most-used devices clean and (mostly) free of bacteria. Below, you’ll find a list of game-changing cleaning products for pretty much everything you need – from keeping the air you breathe as clean as possible to ensuring your unworn clothes stay fresh.
Samsung Jet Bot AI+
Your robot vacuum is about to get a whole lot smarter, with Samsung’s new Jet Bot AI+. It’s the world’s first Intel AI-powered smart robot vacuum that uses a 3D sensor and enhanced object recognition to navigate itself through the home. Whether a toy or a leg chair stands in the way of it cleaning, this little robot will be able to make its way around it and clean efficiently.
And if you’re living with someone with long hair, the vacuum is equipped with high-efficiency extractors which grinds up loose hairs to prevent tangles around the cleaning brush. Put the vacuum on Smart Mode when you’re out, and the vacuum’s intelligent Power Control will be able to identify the type of surface and amount of dust, then automatically adjust its suction power to clean effectively.

LG Styler Essence Mirrored Finish
Need a way to keep your best clothes fresh after two years of not leaving the house? The LG Styler does all the work for you with its chemical additives-free TrueSteam™ technology, which reduces more than 99.9% of bacteria to easily sanitise your clothes, bags, and even soft toys that can be a hassle to wash.

Momax Q Power Phone Sterilizer
If knowing that your smartphone is covered in 17 times more bacteria than a toilet seat isn’t enough to make start sanitising your phones – probably nothing will. And if that number has certainly scared you silly, rather than contributing to waste by wiping your phone down with alcohol wipes, try investing in a UV steriliser to keep your phone (or other small accessories such as jewellery and earphones) clean.
This one by Momax uses UV-C technology to remove 99% of Candida albicans, E.coli, and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. Certified by STC(HK), you can even opt for the model that comes with a Qi-certified wireless charger with a maximum of 10W rated output. W storminggravity.com
