In Need of a Good Handheld Vacuum Cleaner...

This one comes from a local reader in Bloomington, IN:

Q - Okay, so I've got this terrible spider problem since my home's located in a more remote, forest-rich area of the city. I've been going around with my Eureka tubes cleaning up the spider web every few days. It would be nice to have a hand vacuum cleaner (preferably wireless, if that even exists) I can use to simply pick up, clean up, and put away really easily. Any ideas?

A - Well, like we've stated before, we don't like hurting them critters, but there's no doubt a difference between a few pets and an infestation.

If yours happens to the one of the latter, we encourage calling an exterminator if it's really bad, but if you enjoy doing some easy house cleaning, take a gander at some of our recommendations below:

100909_dirt_devil_kone2.jpgDirt Devil Kone Cordless Rechargeable Hand Vac ($44): Great reviews, perfect for small clean-ups. And because it's wireless and rechargeable, you'll never have to deal with cord fiddling ever again.

100909_dustbuster.jpgBlack & Decker 15.6 -Volt Cyclonic-Action Cordless DustBuster with AccuREACH ($49): This Black and Decker model has been around forever and has always been positively received by many looking for a durable, cordless sucking machine.

Have a recommendation for Will? Let him know in the comments!
