Here are our picks for the cordless vacuums that will make you actually want to clean. Put on a juicy podcast and get to work!

1. Black + Decker Cordless Pivot Vac ($54): This compact hand vac has a see-through, removable dust tray, so it鈥檚 easy to know when all the dirt needs to be dumped and it鈥檚 a cinch to do. Bonus? We dig how it kinda looks like a cute robot.

2. Shark Pet Perfect Bagless Cordless Hand Vac ($40): Shark is one of the best vacuum brands out there, so you know this little blue specimen will get the job done.

3. Electrolux Egorapido Lithium Ion Cordless Power Stick Vacuum Cleaner ($105): The name might be a mouthful, but the cleaning power of this sleek Electrolux model is simplicity itself.

4. Hoover Linx Signature Cordless Stick Vacuum ($150): This slim black vacuum is best for use on hard floors, like tile, linoleum, or hardwood.

6. Dyson V6 HEPA ($299): Yes, Dyson makes cordless vacuums! This one is outfitted with Dyson鈥檚 patented HEPA filtration system, so it鈥檚 ace at vanquishing the allergens that live on your floor, furniture, and more. Dysons are well-known for their amazing sucking power, so you can be sure this cordless vacuum will get your place spick and span.

7. Shark IONFlex DuoClean Cordless Ultra-Light Vacuum ($270): This lime green cordless vac is just right for when you want to pull out the big guns. It can deep-clean carpets and even polish floors.
