Advantages: Fast sparkly windows in a jiffy
Disadvantages: Significant cost but easily pays for self
So who thought I'd look forward to cleaning the windows!? Who thought my husband would VOLUNTEER to clean the windows?! Not me! Enter the Karcher WV50 Window Vacum Cleaner and everything turns on it's head!
We bought this from our local B&Q store for a little under £50. I was very reluctant to part with so much cash for something we could do for free with a good bit of elbow grease. But as a working family time is at a premium, and let's face it, cleaning windows is such a chore! In reality we often pay the local window cleaner to do them at around £8 a go. So over a year the Karcher gadget will pay for itself... but is it any good?
Yes! It's easy to assemble and comes with a one year guarantee. The power unit charges the unit quickly and the charge apparently lasts long enough to clean 45 windows.
Not only is it super fast meaning you get round all the house in a jiffy, it really does give a flawless finish with no smudges, leaving super sparkly windows. Essentially it's a high powered water vacum - so you clean your window or mirror as you usually would then run the Karcher over it to vacum it instantly dry before any dirty water gets a chance to leave any smears. As long as you clean the blades, particularly the outer edges, between vacuming it leaves a perfect finish with no mess in the process.
It's lightweight enough for even the weediest of people to use for all window sizes and holds a good charge to get round the whole house before needed powered up again. Obviously it should also be a useful gadget in winter to quickly deal with condensation on windows. Husband now gets so enthusiastic we find ourselves arguing over who will clean the windows!
As a full time working family our time is precious, so for us this has been a really wise investment. If only Karcher could make something that made him indoors volunteer to do the ironing....
Summary: A must have for busy households
