As the snow starts to fall this winter, you might get caught up in the loveliness of it all until you remember just how gross the season can get. From sludge-covered snow boots to crumbs left behind from holiday road-trip snacks, car messes are common during the cold-weather months. A portable vacuum can help with the cleanup however, and right now, you can get one of the most popular ones on Amazon on sale.

For today only, ThisWorx’s car vacuum cleaner, available in both black and white, is now on sale for $23, for a savings of nearly 50 percent off the usual price of $45. This deal is even better than the $30 sale price we saw earlier this month on this handy gadget, meaning there's never been a better time to grab this device than right now.

Get the ThisWorx Car Vacuum Cleaner on Amazon for $23

When it comes to a car vacuum, portability is crucial. ThisWorx’s car vacuum only weighs 2.4 pounds and comes with a 16-foot cord that you can plug into your car’s 12-volt outlet. The vacuum features a single paper filter but comes with an extra high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter replacement and a cleaning brush to make it last longer. With the tool, you’ll also find a carrying bag that can hold the vacuum, cord, and the included flathead, extendable, and brush nozzles to help with cleaning up crumbs and dirt that might end up in your car this winter.

With over 40,000 reviews and a 4-star rating on Amazon, many customers seem happy with the price point and how easy this tool makes it to clean vehicles when there’s general debris. One reviewer who has three dogs appreciates how there’s no need for an extension cord to use this gadget to clean up pet hair. “I can now just plug this little guy into my [12-volt] car outlet, and I’m good to go,” the shopper wrote. There were some comments about how the suction power isn’t as strong as some would hope, but one customer puts it into perspective: “Yes, it’s not super powerful, but it works! I don’t know what people expect from a ... car vacuum, but it works great to pick up dirt and crumbs in a pinch,” they wrote.

Grab ThisWorx’s car vacuum cleaner on Amazon ahead of the upcoming snowstorms and take advantage of this deal before it goes away.
