When you’re reminiscing about the best of 2021, don’t forget about the cleaning tool that saved us all from stray crumbs in those hard-to-reach places. I’m talking about Bissell’s Featherweight Stick Vacuum, of course. And if you haven’t yet had a chance to experience this handy housekeeping helper, trust me when I tell you that if you want to start off 2022 on a clean note, you need this tool in your arsenal. This must-have was one of the most popular buys among Apartment Therapy readers this year. Here’s why.

Functioning as three cleaning machines in one, this lightweight wonder does the job of a stick vacuum, handheld vacuum, and stair vacuum. It weighs only three pounds, so it’s easy to maneuver it, store it, and convert it back and forth as needed while you’re cleaning. Raves one reviewer, “This little vacuum is small, lightweight but also MIGHTY!” Whether you’re cleaning hardwood floors, carpeted stairs, or messy countertops, the slim, bagless design is incredibly powerful and gets the job done.

Another reviewer was impressed by how well the Bissell performed compared with their very fancy (and very expensive!) vacuum from another well-known brand. “It doesn’t perform nearly as well as this vacuum,” they wrote. With the Featherweight Stick Vacuum, you get top-of-the-line performance for just $34. Yes, you read that right. This highly lauded machine costs just $34!

The Bissell Featherweight Stick Vacuum is available in four colors. Choose black for a subdued look, or opt for blue, purple, or lime to spice up your chores routine. For only $34, you can get your hands on a vacuum that is easy to use and up to the task. Add one to your cart ASAP, and you’ll be well on your way to a brighter, cleaner year ahead.
