These are the reviews that Sweethome readers are most interested in this week.

The Best Wet Mop O-Cedar Microfiber Cloth Mop
We considered hundreds of mops and tested eight, and the O-Cedar Microfiber Cloth Mop (along with the O-Cedar Quick Wring Bucket) was the best at soaking and scrubbing every spill we tested it against.
The Best Bath Towel Fieldcrest Luxury Solid Towel
After more than 42 hours of research and testing, we think the affordable Fieldcrest Luxury Solid Towels are best for most people. They’re almost as soft and absorbent as others twice the price.
The Best Dishwasher Bosch 300 Series M
Now that Bosch has updated most of its dishwasher line, our new pick for most people is the quiet, capacious, and reasonably priced Bosch 300 Series M.
The Best Hybrid Bike Marin Fairfax SC1
We tested 14 new bikes in 2017, and the Marin Fairfax SC1 is our favorite hybrid bike for commuters. It comes with quality components and commuter-friendly features, without succumbing to the price creep we’ve seen on similar bikes.
The Best Vacuums Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV352
After our look at more than 330 vacuums over hundreds of hours, our favorite vacuum for most people is still the Shark Navigator Lift-Away NV352.
The Best Washer and Dryer LG WM3770HWA
After more than 100 hours of research, we think the LG WM3770HWA and DLEX3370W are the best matching washer and dryer pair for most people.
The Best Gear for Small Apartments
We’ve spent more than 100 hours researching and testing the best small apartment furnishings and accessories to optimize your small home.
The Best Sheets L.L.Bean Pima Cotton Percale Sheets
After a combined 200 hours of research and testing 20 new sets, we think L.L.Bean’s 280-Thread-Count Pima Cotton Percale Sheets and JCPenney’s sateen Royal Velvet 400tc WrinkleGuard Sheet Set offer the best comfort and value for most people. They’ve both topped our list three years running.
The Best Lawn Mower Honda HRX217K5VKA
After 50 hours of research, the self-propelled, gas-powered Honda HRX217K5VKA is our best lawn mower pick for the third year running, thanks to unmatched reliability and performance that makes yard work easier.
The Best Running Gear
You can run while wearing just about anything, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have a good time doing it. After 90 hours of research and testing with the most passionate runners on our staff, this is the running gear we’d recommend.
