Does anyone really think that cleaning is actually fun? Speaking for myself, I always want to get it done as fast and with as little strain on my body as possible, but usually, I can’t achieve one of those goals without sacrificing the other. To get the level of deep cleaning that I usually want, it eats up half of the day, and I usually feel like I ran a marathon afterward. Scrubbing the floors and the bathroom tiles hunched over is probably the worst part — I can wipe down counters and mirrors all day long, but having to squat in uncomfortable positions just to get things clean is not exactly my ideal way to spend a weekend.

TikTok user @angelmoney88 seems to be of a similar mind. In a video posted several weeks ago, they gave an insight into their cleaning routine — instead of “squatting and scrubbing like Cinderella,” the creator went in with a power tool to tackle the floors. The sentiment resonated with viewers, amassing over 1.2 million likes. Luckily, the user didn’t keep us in suspense regarding what exact tool was being used — it’s a Ryobi Power Scrubber, and after doing some digging, it appears to be just as fantastic as it looks in the viral video.

What is the Ryobi ONE+ 18V Cordless Telescoping Power Scrubber?

Claiming to be the “industry’s most powerful handheld scrubber,” this tool has an aluminum handle that reaches up to 51 inches (and shrinks to 38 inches), so you can cut through dirt and grime in hard-to-reach places, high or low — and you don’t have to strain your back while you scrub at the floor. And you don’t have to worry about it dying on you before you’ve tackled the whole house, since it has an impressive two-hour run time and a lockable power button to keep it going.

And it can withstand anything you might throw at it in that time — the 18V One+ can be submerged in up to three feet of water for 30 minutes. A medium stiffness bristle brush is included in your order, but if you want to get others that are suited to different kinds of surfaces, the tool is compatible with other interchangeable triangle connection Ryobi brushes. The scrubber can be adjusted to six alternate positions so the brush angle works best with the surface you’re cleaning. You do have to order the battery platform separately, but it also works with over 280 cordless products from the brand.

What Home Depot Reviewers are Saying

Average Rating: 4.2/5

“I’ve used this not only in my house on the grout and tile, but outside on the concrete, on pavers, and even the welcome mat! This thing makes it so easy to scrub, and even better, it’s effortless! Im lazy and i have found myself looking around for something else to clean!” — MrKohnAZ

“I use this scrubber often to wash our cars, scrub our tiles, and showers. The extension really saves your back. I like the feature that allows the user to let go of the power button and the scrubber still circulates. This is a great product.” — andyreesecups

“I bought this specifically to clean our travel trailer and it didn’t disappoint. Made cleaning the roof and sides a pleasure. Used the soft bristle brush so not to damage the decals and it worked perfectly. Drastically cut down the cleaning time. Will use the buffer pad to wax. Would definitely recommend.” — Richard K

If you want to cut your cleaning time in half and make it easier on your body, this power scrubber is the way to go. Cleaning TikTok has given me some great recommendations over the years, but this one might be the best!
