I hate streaky windows – yet I am the queen of leaving windows looking worse than when I started, when it comes to me trying to cleaning them, so it was with great gusto I took on the challenge of giving the Karcher Window Vac a try, the outcome though left me Karcherless and my Mum using it on a daily basis.
The idea behind using the Karcher Window Vac is simple, you use the spray bottle with micro-fibre head to spray and wipe down your windows, then you vac off the water residue to leave you with sparkling clean, streak free windowpanes!
The set I was provided included not only the vac and spray bottle but also an extra smaller nozzle which although I was originally sceptical about has probably become the most used of the two. Set up of the Vac is easy just choose the right size nozzle for the job in hand, click in into place and you are sorted, as for the bottle, the micro-fibre head of the spray is completely removable for cleaning and just simply slips back into place when you want to use it, allowing for set up in seconds.
For the last few technical specifications the water chamber on the Karcher Window Vac holds 100ml of waste water, and the battery will hold up for a minimum of 20 minutes. But while it's all well and good talking about the facts and figures; but how does it stand up in use?
The Karcher Window Vac is actually quite light in weight and offers a slightly quieter than a vacume experience on noise level and it allows for a simple window washing experienc. All you need to do is lather up either using the spray and wipe bottle included or with whatever your personal preferred method maybe and then you set about with the vacume, sucking instead of wiping away the water residue, leaving windows (even for me) streak free and sparkling like new.
Of course even with that result you may be thinking just how often do I clean my windows isn't it a lot to shell out for something that will be used just a few times per year? That's where this window vac takes on a life of its own, as it is fantastic for, cleaning up water spills, helping with cleaning the car and the one thing that is has become a daily use for at my parents, cleaning out the shower. This little beauty not only sucks up the condensation or water left after cleaning from any glass surfaces in the room, but also any mirrors and tiles.
The Karcher Window Vac is available in a number of different packages starting from £59.99 for the main body plus larger cleaning nozzle.
