There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. Thankfully, the ever-growing fleet of robotic vacuums can help you scratch at least one of the chores off your list. If your dust bunnies are starting to get dust bunnies, you may want to consider investing in the Neato XV-12 automatic vacuum cleaner.
The XV-12 is the latest robotic vacuum cleaner. Designed to pick up dirt, pet hair and other debris, this device works on all types of floors and carpet. Use it every day, and Neato says you may improve allergies and asthma. And why wouldn’t you run it every day? Is your finger broken?
That’s pretty much all it takes to operate the Neato XV-12. With the push of a button, Neato promises powerful suction, planned and patterned cleaning, and scuff-free navigation. Also, because the device has such a low profile, it should be able to squeeze under beds and sofas, as well as into other tight areas.
Once the dirty job is done, the vacuum will return to its base to charge up for the next day’s duties. Speaking of which, the XV-12 also has a cleaning scheduler, so you can set the device to clean every day automatically.
Available in a new Misty White color, the Neato XV-12 is a Target exclusive. It’s currently available on the retailer’s website, with an MSRP of $399.99. Expect the vacuum to start showing up in Target retail locations on October 16.
