We love our pets, but boy, can they make a mess! Your pup's dirty paw prints, your cat's constantly shedding coat, or the crumbs that surround their bowl at all times can all add up to a headache when it comes to keeping your house clean. Being a pet owner is a dirty (yet joyful!) job.
You could use a little help, So instead of whipping out a vacuum every time you find a clump of fur under the table, outsource the work to a friendly little helper — namely, the OKP Robot Vacuum Cleaner, which is on massive sale right now. It's just $120, down from $400 — that's 70% off! This little blue robot does all the dirty work for you, so you can spend more time with your pets and less time cleaning up after them.
Even better, you can program the vac remotely by using the OKP app. It's compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, so just tell your smart home system to turn on your little robot, and it'll whizz off in search of a mess to clean.

The vac is equipped to handle both wood and carpet flooring, and has four modes to make fast work of dirt, debris, fur and more. It can follow the wall and automatically clean, spot clean or manually clean so that a mess of any size is tackled with precision and power. It'll run for up to 100 minutes (on low suction mode) before automatically returning to its charging base to juice up.
"All I can say is WOW," writes one pet owner. "With several dogs in my house, I think this will be a godsend. As soon as I received it, I put it together and let it go. I just swept, for the third time, and it picked up hair from under my coffee table, along the walls, and the edge of my furniture! So far, I LOVE it!"
Another added: "This vacuum is amazing!!! I will never sweep my floors again...Now, we are by no means dirty people, but this really grossed me out to know that our floors were so nasty and hair-covered. The app makes it easy to control — in fact, I’m at work right now while the vacuum is doing my house cleaning at home. Love love love it! Especially if you have pets, this thing is definitely worth it!"
"I wasn't expecting that it would be so good," added a third. "I have dogs, two of them shed a lot which drives me crazy but this vacuum keeps my floor clean. I don't see hair anywhere, it goes under the furniture and everywhere with no problem."
You don't need to be a pet owner to get the most out of this vac, either:
"I am so in love with this little gadget!" writes a happy shopper."It works amazingly to keep my floors spotless. I let her run until; the battery is dead then she recharges herself and is ready for more cleaning! I haven't tried the app, the remote control works perfectly!"
In short: "This robot vacuum is a life changer! I can’t believe I waited this long to buy it! I absolutely love it — it's amazing!"
