After reading this Apartment Therapy appliance recommendation, I decided to find one for myself and give it a try. Cat hair blows like tumbleweed across my hardwood floors on an annoyingly regular basis and sweeping only seems to shuffle the hair around instead of eliminate it. Great news! The Electrolux Ergorapido 2-in-1 Sweeper works awesome! And it's light and cord-free and has extra bits that get into hard-to-reach places. It's like living in a whole new apartment now. Yay! Who would have thought that a vaccum cleaner could delight me so much.
