We’ve talked about why Roombas are a godsend to busy people. It’s the best no-fuss way to make sure your place is clean, without having to get your hands dirty. Amazon has one on sale today for just $189.99, which is far less than you’d spend on a fancy upright. The best part of having a robot vacuum is that you can then schedule your Roomba to clean any time, any day or manually control it with the included remote. It comes equipped with Dirt Detect technology that uses “an acoustic sensor to identify dirtier areas and spends more time cleaning them,” iAdapt, the system that ensures Roomba cleans every part of the room, and Virtual Wall, which will keep Roomba confined to where it needs to go, and only where it needs to go. While this is a certified refurbished model, you can bet that it’ll work just as well on your floors as a new one (plus it comes with a 90-day warranty).
