The 10 Best vacuum cleaners
From powerful suckers and corner demons to a robot that cleans the house, we’ve got the top tools for the job
1. Black & Decker 18V Pivot Dustbuster
This handheld vac by Black & Decker is ideal for small spillages and it comes with an extendible crevice tool for confined spaces.
2. Dyson DC44 Animal Digital Slim
Dyson's new handheld is good enough to replace your upright vacuum cleaner and can even run on reduced power for 20 minutes.

Move over Henry, welcome George, which can both dry and wet vacuum, whether it's a spillage, a blocked sink or grubby floor.
