When you’re busy picking up your child’s toys, cleaning up mess after mess, and making sure the older one doesn’t squash the younger, cleaning and tidying your house is probably one of the last things on your mind!

Housework is pretty much relegated to a quick 10-minute magic mop around the house on a weekly basis, until the gathering dust compels you to do a more thorough clean-up. With the Lunar New Year around the corner, and the influx of visitors expected, you’re probably starting to stress out (just a little) about the state of your home.

Fret not – here are five spring cleaning tools that can help you keep your house squeaky clean!

1. A Chemical-free Vacuum Cleaner

Its sleek design allows for ease of movement, and storage. Besides helping to get your floor all spick and span with its vacuum function, the DS 6.000 is also great for cleaning up upholstery, carpets, ceilings and bed linen, with the right nozzle or attachment for each task.
