With more people working from home than ever, desks are getting a lot of use. It also means dirt, dust, crumbs, and other debris might be slowly building up over the surface, making everything from your laptop to keyboards grimier in the process. Taking a regular vacuum to these crevices is challenging, but the ODISTAR Desktop Vacuum Cleaner is a simple, compact way to help keep clear of mess.

This 4.4-star-rated gadget is available on Amazon starting at $12, and it helps keep dust, hair, food particles, and other unwanted buildup out of sight. This device features a built-in nozzle with strong suction power, and a powerful, rechargeable battery that provides up to two and a half hours of continuous cleaning time, according to the company. The 360-degree rotatable design helps maneuver to clean up messes in different nooks and surfaces.

More than 300 reviewers on Amazon like this nifty gadget. Specifically, shoppers love the cleaner’s precision and ergonomic design, with one noting that, "[it] cleans between [grooves in] my desk, cleans my keyboard, etc. It's small, so it doesn't waste space.” At roughly 3 inches in size, this portable vacuum cleaner is slim, easy to store, and doesn't come with all the extra attachments that a traditional vacuum cleaner does, which is part of the appeal. This item's handheld size allows you to maneuver around different exteriors with ease.
