Dads – do you ever find there just isn’t enough time in the day to do everything? After you’ve got your kid ready for school, taken them there & back again, got the shopping, washed dishes, done laundry, made breakfast & dinner, and whatever else you do to keep the family ticking over (like blogging!) – some jobs are just too time consuming to even contemplate – so you tend to ignore them.
In our house, dirty windows are something I tend to ‘forget’. We could of course hire a window cleaner, but as we’re on a single income it seems a little unnecessary. Also add to the list of jobs I like to put off is cleaning the bathroom, especially the tiles and mirrors.
One day, perhaps we’ll add it to the list of chores the kid can do for her pocket money. But in the meantime, my wife – who works full time – will eventually have had enough and do them herself.
Vileda WindoMatic Window Vacuum Cleaner
Vileda offered me the chance to try out their Windomatic, which is sold as a ‘Window Vacuum Cleaner’, for streak free window cleaning. But you can use it on more than just windows.
You see, it’s cold and wet outside (it is winter after all), so I decided to put it through it’s paces indoors. Because this shouldn’t really be described as a window vacuum cleaner, but a water/liquid one.
It’s battery operated, and takes 6 hours to fully charge. All the liquid is collected in a compartment inside the device, that can be easily removed and cleaned.
Firstly, I used it on the bathroom tiles post shower – worked a treat getting all the water off.
I then used it on condensation heavy windows, which not only sucked up the moisture but gave them a bit of a clean too. This worked well on both steamed up bathroom windows as well as general condensation on other windows in the house.
But wait, there’s more. When you have kids – or even clumsy adults – in the house, spilled drinks are common place, as is getting out the kitchen towel to mop them up. Well, you can use the Windomatic for that instead.
I didn’t get to actually cleaning the windows, because it was cold and wet (winter eh?), but having used it around the house this way I have no doubt it would do a bang up job.
My biggest issue with the Windomatic is that it makes these jobs so much easier that I might actually have to start doing them.
I hope my wife isn’t reading this…
The Vileda Windomatic has an RRP of £49.99.
We were sent a Windomatic free of charge, for the purposes of this sponsored post in collaboration with Vileda.
