Technology is such a blessing and a curse but if it helps get the job done faster and more efficiently, allowing more time with the kids, then I’m counting it as a blessing. Mummyfique looks at six new household appliances for the busy, modern household and where to get them.
Go book that massage now mummy, because soon you’ll have some extra time on your hands.
Mummies will rejoice knowing that cleaning the house will be easier with the new Dyson V8. This 2.6kg cord-free vacuum cleaner has a small yet impressive motor that spins at 110,000rpm, comparable to the larger corded counterparts when it comes to suction power. There is no need to get your hands dirty with the new hygienic dirt ejector, which allows mums to empty the bin without touching or scraping the dirt off. With the additional attachment of the V8 Absolute, this Dyson V8 can be used on both carpets and hard floors, removing both large debris and fine pet hair.
Price: S$999 (Dyson V8 Fluffy) and S$1,099 (Dyson V8 Absolute)

The busy mum will be glad to know that ECOVACS Robotics has launched a new range of stronger, more long-lasting and smarter robot vacuum and window cleaners. The DEEBOT can be controlled with the ECOVACS app, which allows mums to schedule the cleaning of their floors. The R9 series vacuum has a scanning and mapping technology which recognises the house and returns to its dock after cleaning. The WINBOT is equipped with a safety feature that prevents the machine from falling out the window and you won’t hear the 950 model as it provides a quieter cleaning experience.
