We were very lucky to be sent a Kärcher Window Vac to review. Now, this may be because I am super fantastic, or the fact I am a complete clean freak with massive OCD tendencies when it comes to cleaning. I will make my judgement after I have wiped the computer screen and dusted the keyboard again (grrr, crumbs everywhere!)
The Kärcher Window Vac sucks surfaces completely dry, streak free and makes it easier than ever to achieve crystal clear windows in an instant. It’s also perfect for removing liquid from mirrors, shower screens, tiles, condensation from windows and even spills from floors and worktops. When it arrived, it was really simple to put together, and with a simple couple of clicks, the top ‘mop’ head was attached to the squirty bottle full of cleaning fluid that came with the pack. The idea of this is to spray directly onto the window, wipe the window and then to use the Window Vac with the other hand. Think Karate Kid – Wipe on with one hand, Vac off with the other!
Once the window has had a wipe, you then switch on the Kärcher Vac and literally play ‘window men!’ Push it against the window and slowly pull the Vac down, and complete magic happens. The liquid is removed and the window is sparkly clean. When I mean clean, I mean MEGA clean. No marks, no streaks, no mess. I was a bit shocked, so carried on and finished the double doors (yes, big project first off). They looked really impressive. I then decided it was time to get exciting – I did every mirror in the house (which previously had resulted in smudges) and every piece of glass (doors, windows) and then…moved on to the outside! We live in a Bungalow – and I cleaned the outside windows! Again, really impressive and super quick, I managed the whole house, every window, mirror and the outside in under 42 minutes on ONE CHARGE! It really was that quick and lasted the whole house without needing to stop and recharge.
The Kärcher Window Vac is cordless and lightweight and simple to charge. Once I had finished, I emptied the little sealed compartment where the water had been sucked and put the Vac on charge. Within an hour, the Vac was fully charged and even though I didn’t (spoil sport I know) was tempted to go again just because I could! The next challenge is the car windows and my mums conservatory – this really means I do not have to a) attempt to clean them with a cloth b) let them look awful and c) pay for a window cleaner!
The Window Vacs start at £59.99 and can be brought at most major retailers as well as online here. I am really impressed with the results and how easy it was – I now have sparkly mirrors, ready to have freshly laid finger prints on by my crazy toddler!
