Lugging an unwieldy, heavy vacuum around the house, blindly attempting to get into those hidden corners under the bed and stove, qualifies as tedious. And while an upright vacuum cleaner is certainly essential, sometimes it's far easier to tackle these spots with a lightweight handheld vacuum that's just as powerful. 

With this popular Black + Decker handheld vacuum, shoppers are thinking twice before dragging out their mammoth vacuums for small messes. It boasts strong suction and an extended run time of 10 hours before it needs to be recharged. Over 31 ounces of dust, pet dander, and crumbs can fit in the vacuum, which is complete with a washable bowl and filter. Plus, the dirt bowl is translucent, so you can always see what's inside and know when it needs to be emptied. 

The wide mouth can pick up big debris and attaches to two included accessories for added benefits. Employ the crevice tool for hard-to-reach areas, and put on the brush tool to clean upholstery and drapes. The vacuum is small enough to slide under the stove and other corners with ease, sucking up all the dirt you'd never see otherwise.
