Roomba's 3-stage cleaning system grabs dirt, dust, crumbs, pet hair, and debris from your carpets and hard floors. Plus, its advanced sensors help navigate it under and around your furniture and along edges. There are several different models available depending on what features you are looking for. Most models are Wi-Fi connected and have an app that allows you to set cleaning schedules, start and stop Roomba from anywhere, and see a map showing where Roomba cleaned. It is like giving your loved ones the gift of a housekeeper.

Download Graphics to View LARQ Self-Cleaning Water Bottle
More and more people are turning to reusable water bottles to help reduce the amount of plastic in our landfills. But, it can be hard to get the inside of your water bottle clean and that can open the door for bacteria, mold, and odors to appear. Not with the LARQ Self-Cleaning Water Bottle. This unique bottle uses UV-C light to neutralize up to 99.9% of harmful bacteria and viruses inside your water bottle and in your water. Besides being self-cleaning, the double-walled, vacuum insulated, stainless steel bottle will keep water cold for 24 hours and hot for 12 hours. It's the smart way to sip!
