    "It easily picks up TONS of pet hair from furniture with some simple back-and-forth swipes. Then it's simple to pop open the back compartment and swoop that unbelievably big pile of collected hair right into the trash or compost. If you have pets that like to sprinkle their shed-glitter wherever they go — and especially on the furniture — I 100% recommend giving the Chom Chom a try!!" —Natalie Brown

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca, Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    "These gloves are honestly so much fun to use. Sometimes I go looking for things to dust. I can quickly wipe down large surfaces like counters, cupboards or tables or use them on smaller or more fragile items like the picture frames or perfume bottles, without worrying about breaking them. I usually keep one near my desk to wipe down my computer screen and desk, because it gets pretty dusty in my room. I love that I can just toss them in the wash when they start to look a little grungy."—Kaysey Davis
