How a Robot Mop Can Save You Time

How a Robot Mop Can Save You Time

Time is of the essence for most of us, and we really couldn’t get enough of it. Some say life goes on and on, but others will tell you that it’s short – regardless of how you feel, it never hurts to cut as many corners as possible. There’s a new product out on the market that is as useful as it is nifty, which would be the robot mop.[1] The robot mop is a piece of equipment that will automatically go about cleaning your home while you’re away, which is fantastic for busy individuals (much like myself). I never have time to clean up around the house, and it’s become a pretty big problem. I own two dogs, both of which shed constantly and iI don’t keep up with the cleaning duties, it becomes pretty obvious that I’ve been neglecting my home. The right robot mop not only fixed that, but it allowed me to relax and use my time a little more freely.

Cleaning is a portion of life that we cannot avoid, but we can definitely make it easier! The best robot mop is not only one that would clean your home with ease, but one that wouldn’t have you struggling to pay for it either. There are affordable options, but you can expect to pay upwards of a hundred or so dollars for them. Still, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

Another thing I was interested in was a robot vacuum, but I decided to stick with a robot mop only because I could not afford both. A powerful and effective robot mop or vacuum is relatively expensive, which is the reason that I had to stick with only one of them. Below are some ways that investing in a robot mop comes in handy:

Pet Hair

Dealing with pet hair is always annoying, but with a robot mop, all I have to do is empty it out every other day or so. Pet hair can find its way just about anywhere, and since I love my pets, it’s not like I can just kick them out! A robot mop keeps my floors free from pet hair, allowing me to focus on other aspects of cleaning, such as cleaning my kitchen and bathroom.

Debris

There’s going to be tons of debris being tracked throughout your home, especially in places where there’s a lot of foot traffic. All it takes is a robot mop on the main level of your home to minimize the amount of debris you see around the house, and it may even make it so that you don’t need to clean at all. Robot mops aren’t good for giant rocks or anything of that nature, but even small pebbles and clumps of dirt are no match for this product. You may need to vacuum afterward to get the last bits and the sides, but the floor will still look good and be mostly cleaned nonetheless.

Forget About Cleaning Completely

If you get a robot mop with all of the “trimmings”, they’ll implement features like auto-on (and auto-off), as well as power-cleaning implementation. Some robot mops are going to be larger when compared to cheaper varieties, and thus, pack a larger cleaning punch. Identify how big the need for a robot mop is in your situation, and then purchase one accordingly. If time truly does equal money in your mind, then every single second counts.

Don’t waste any of it with cleaning – just buy a cleaning gadget, such as a robot mop, and leave your cleaning duties up to technology. You will be surprised how well they actually do the trick and that you don’t have to buy the best and most expensive one to get the job done either.

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

Minimizing Tabs

Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

Incognito Mode

Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:

  1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
  2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
  3. Download extension New Incognito Window

This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

Save Webpages as PDF Files

Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

Open Recently-closed Tabs

Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.

Solve Mathematical Problems

Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

Play Media Files

Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

Stay Focus(e)d

Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.

Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

Grammarly for Editing

Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!

Loom

There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.

There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

Chrome Calendar Extension

No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

Final Thoughts

Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
