Stick Vacuums That Will Change the Way You Clean
If you're looking for a vacuum that's not too heavy and takes up less space than a standard vacuum, then a stick vacuum is the perfect option. You may even, dare we say, enjoy vacuuming if you don’t have to lug around a huge machine from one room to the next. For even easier cleaning, check out a cordless or 2-in-1 handheld stick vacuum. These small and mighty machines prove that you don't have to sacrifice cleaning power when it comes to these easy-to-manuever picks.
