BLACK+DECKER Powertool, I Plan on Cleaning Up this Holiday with my New BLACK+DECKER Powertool, Days of a Domestic Dad

I love the holidays. I also love power gadgets, especially ones that make the holidays more efficient. My yearly holiday wish list usually includes a useful tool that will make next year that much easier and more fun. I did receive an early holiday gift that I am really excited about and already putting to good use.


The BLACK&DECKER Compact Cordless Lithium Wet/Dry Hand Vacuum is my new favorite power tool. I call it a power tool because it is a powerful and lightweight piece of equipment that holds a charge long enough for me to handle multiple cleanup jobs. This vacuum blows away the standard hand-held models. First of all, it has a lithium-ion battery with a 10 hour charge capacity. The next best feature is that it handles both wet and dry clean-up jobs. And, it only weighs 2.4 pounds. The clear plastic body enables me to see when the vacuum is full.

BLACK+DECKER Holiday Selection

My kids (and I) don’t just spill dry things. This vacuum cleans up the pine needles that the Christmas tree sheds while putting it up and decorating it. It also takes care of the overflow of water that I allow the kids to place in the tree stand – much of the water won’t make it from the kitchen to the living room. I suspect this vacuum will be picking up just about every crumb and spill this holiday season. At least I know I will be putting it to the test with all that goes on this time of year.

Cleaning up this Holiday

There are so many great BLACK+DECKER holiday gift ideas this season, and frankly, every season. BLACK+DECKER strives to make life convenient with small appliances and power tools that every DIYer and not-so-handy person can master. The 4V MAX ROTO-BIT Storage Screwdriver is something my older teenage kids can easily and safely handle by following the instructions.


The SMARTECH™ Stick Vacuum is an all-in-one vacuum that handles both large and small clean-up jobs. These are just a couple of the new gift ideas. BLACK+DECKER does not disappoint when it comes to innovate products and smart technology every holiday season.
