We did a vacuum Co-op, once, and Dyson swept the nominations. Don’t get me wrong, Dyson makes good stuff, but not everyone needs (or can afford) a $300-$500 cleaning appliance. So today, we’re looking to determine your favorite affordable alternatives that don’t suck (or do suck). If you can regularly purchase it for $150 or less, it’s eligible, so go sound off in the comments.

1) Your nomination should contain:

  • The specific name of the product, not just a brand or series. Why you think this item is the best. A link where the item can be purchased. An image of the item.

2) Vote by starring someone else’s nomination.

3) Please do not duplicate nominations.
