Raise your hand if you like to vacuum! Ok, I only see my neighbor Marge’s hand. That’s ok, I get it. It’s a non-stop chore that nags are your soul. I’ve always wanted to find a shortcut. When the makers of bObi Pet (bObsweep) asked me try to try a modern day version of Rosie the Maid from the Jetsons, I was game.
At first glance, it looked complicated. I wondered what I had gotten myself in to!
But really, it’s very simple. There is a smart round thing that wants to take care of things for you. All you have to do is stay out of it’s way. And, anything that comes with a remote is always on point!
I got him (or is it her? My kids and I are undecided) set up, then checked under the hood. Seems legit.
But the real proof is what the dogs would think of it. There was a bit of a “getting to know you” period, which eventually turned into an “oh, you again?” sort of feeling.
A couple things I learned about robotic vacuuming:
- He (or she) is strong. Be aware of the proximity of your lighter weight objects (faux ficus, lightweight chairs). She/he will not be ignored.
- Don’t try to understand Bobi’s logic. Just let it go…you don’t need to control everything.
- Don’t worry about your pets, they’ll reach acceptance at some point.
- Do corral your cords. Not just for Bobi, but because rouge cords are ugly.
I’m happy to report that pups are now indifferent, and I can cross something off my list before I even start. That’s progress!
Note: I received a complimentary bObi Pet robotic vacuum to review, but all opinions are authentically mine.
