Here are just a few things that are probably in your car right now but shouldn’t be: dirt, Dorito dust, dog hair, leaves, chips, tiny pieces of paper, pretzel remnants, an errant French fry from your last pit stop. But take heart: For just $21 (down from $45), you can suck all that stuff up and be left with a nice, clean interior. Your car will feel as fresh as when you first got it!
Now, next time there’s a Cheetos spill, don’t crush all that orange dust into the carpet. Just grab the ThisWorx car vac from the trunk, plug it into your car’s 12v outlet, and clean like a pro. Thanks to a HEPA filter, the gadget also eradicates allergens to keep your car healthy and safe. Just think of all the money you’ll save by not having to hit the car wash as often!
Cordless vacs can be convenient, but they don’t always have the power to get the job done. This thing has a 106-watt motor and a 16-foot cord for getting in between seat cushions and that no man’s land down the sides. And a stiff brush lets you go crazy on stubborn messes. Over 106,000 Amazon shoppers gave it a perfect five-star rating.
The hand vac includes three different attachments, including a brush nozzle for pet hair. And this is so satisfying: Since the trash container is clear you can watch all that debris going into the machine. Ahhh.
It also makes a great present for anyone who takes frequent road trips. Reviewers are loving the convenience of this little guy: “The most impressive car vacuum,” raves a fan. “This thing is awesome! I have a 2018 Dodge Durango that sadly does not have leather seats. I own three dogs and it is just a nightmare pulling out my extension cord to vacuum my truck. I can now just plug this in and I’m good to go! The power in this vacuum is as good as it’s going to get for a car vacuum.”
A ride-share driver said they regularly use the vac, and said it helps them score great tips. “This is a terrific vacuum cleaner! Very easy to set up! This baby does the job!” they added.
“This is the best auto vacuum I have used,” says another happy customer. “It gets the things that other vacuums have not, like the fine dust that collects on the dash and console. The attachments seem built for a car as does the design and shape of this machine. Kudos to the design engineers. ThisWorx is well named because it does.”
First the stunning villa from House of Gucci was listed on Airbnb; now the iconic Home Alone house is bookable, too. Well, kind of. The instantly recognisable family home, which is situated in the Chicago suburb of Winnetka, is available to rent for one night only on 12th December. It’s listed for the princely sum of $25 (£19), which means it’s a marketing stunt, but one we can’t resist because it’s connected to one of the best Christmas films ever. Airbnb has even recruited actor Devin Ratray –
Welcome to Money Diaries where we are tackling the ever-present taboo that is money. We’re asking real people how they spend their hard-earned money during a seven-day period — and we’re tracking every last dollar.Today: a UX/UI manager who makes $160,000 per year and spends some of her money this week on a hanging plant.

There’s one thing worse than a bad first date – a bad first date where you spent more than you wanted to. It’s not just the fact you’ve “invested” in someone you’ll probably never see again, but the realisation that you could have spent that money on quality time with your friends. According to new research by Badoo, the average bad first date costs a person £47.50. On average, Badoo users said they have experienced six failed romantic connections in the last year – and if each one cost £47.50,
Welcome to Taking Stock, a space where we can take a deep breath and try to figure out what the COVID-19 economy really means for our finances. Every month, personal finance expert Paco de Leon will answer your most difficult, emotionally charged questions about money. This year has forced many of us to reprioritise our finances, and there’s no clear road map for getting through the pandemic yet — but Taking Stock is here to help us figure it out together. This month, we’re discussing if and whe
If you’re someone who likes their historical dramas to stick to the facts, The Great probably doesn’t rank highly on your list of favourite period pieces. However if, like us, you take your true stories with a dash of panache, then it’s almost certain that you binged the first series of the Elle Fanning drama in a matter of days. One of the best current examples of how a serious story can be made wildly entertaining, the royal tale is now back for its second instalment, continuing Catherine the
When you have diabetes your sex life, just like everything else, is much more complicated. Whatever type of diabetes you have, whatever your gender and whoever you choose to have sex with, intimacy comes with a number of caveats and precautions that have to be negotiated. But thanks to the persistent taboo that surrounds talking about sex, as well as a lack of understanding about diabetes, the issue is rarely discussed. As a spokesperson for Diabetes UK puts it to R29: “Many people will experien
It bears repeating: the pandemic has changed the way we approach dating in more ways than one. Since the world has tentatively opened back up, we’ve thrown caution to the wind and embraced whim-taking alongside creative, fun and joyful spontaneity in our burgeoning relationships. This practice is so popular that it has even been given a very millennial moniker: ‘spontani-dating’. “When there were a few restrictions, you had to get more creative and find different common grounds other than going
Lady Gaga is currently building Oscar buzz for her brilliant performance in House of Gucci, one of this year’s most stylish movies. In the buzzy crime biopic, Gaga transforms into Patrizia Reggiani, a woman who married into the rich and wealthy Gucci clan, but was never fully accepted. If she does receive Oscar recognition early next year, it will be Gaga’s second acting nomination following her nod for A Star Is Born. At this point, absolutely no one is questioning her acting chops. However, in
With winter setting in and another lockdown possibly coming our way, we’re getting into all things cosy and home-y. By now, we know that interior design can boost your mental health, so it pays to make the most of your space if you’re planning on spending more time indoors. With this in mind, online craft store Etsy has just released its 2022 trends and they’re filled with interior inspo. According to Etsy, emerald green is destined to become the signature colour of 2022. Searches for emerald gr
December kicks off with clarity, as dreamy Neptune ends its retrograde journey on December 1. During the planet’s backward dance, which began on June 25 in Pisces, our creative senses were awakened; when Neptune goes direct again, we’ll be able to make use of all that we learned. Soon after, on December 4, a total solar eclipse in Sagittarius will give us the drive to plan a seasonal adventure. The middle of the month brings some significant planetary movements: On December 13, action planet Mar
In October, Stella McCartney’s spring 2022 show opened with the voice of American mycologist Paul Stamets. It wasn’t the first time the British designer referenced fungi in her work. McCartney, known for pioneering sustainability in fashion and using cruelty-free materials in her work, previously unveiled a sports bra and leggings made from mushroom-based “leather” in March. But, with the debut of the label’s first-ever bag made from Mylo™, a trademarked mycelium-based material created by the bi
How well do you know your partner? Spend every day beside someone and it’s like an unintentional study of a living, breathing subject. Their smell. The curve of their face. The way they make coffee: strong, milky, right up to the rim, as if those messy extra millilitres are the urgent divide between awake and comatose. What would happen if, one day, you realised that you didn’t know them at all? That they were a stranger. That all the perceived intimacy you had shared was just scratching the sur
In a bid to settle the great Chocolate Box debate once and for all, Which? has released an analysis of all four most popular selection boxes to reveal which come out best in terms of variety and which will leave you with less sad, unwanted chocolates long after the decorations have been put away.
