Review : Kärcher Window Vac

When I first heard of the Kärcher Window Vac, I was a little unsure what it was and what it could do.  It arrived with a very thick instruction booklet and to be honest I was a little worried.  I need not have been, as the instruction booklet only had 3 pages in English the rest was other languages, and one of those pages is a picture showing parts.

The Kärcher Window Vac, was very easy to assemble, simply click the wiper onto the body, charge the unit and you are ready to go.  One charge was enough to get round the windows in our conservatory, average sized conservatory   

You maybe wondering what the Kärcher Window Vac is.  Well to put it simply it sucks up water from a smooth surface.  Except it does a little more than that.  I found it really useful to clean windows.  I would wet a cloth and wash down the window. then use the Kärcher Window Vac, to wipe away all the water.  The suction mechanism takes away all the water, meaning it leaves surface bone dry and streak free.  It takes less time than conventional drying with a cloth and leaves much better results.

The Kärcher Window Vac is the first of its kind and works well on other surfaces including mirrors, shower screens and hard flat surfaces.  I think it would be particularly useful on a car.  After washing the car use the Kärcher Window Vac to remove the excess water leaving a streak free bone dry finish.  Better than drying with lots of cloths and certainly a lot easier.

One other use I did with the Kärcher Window Vac is to clean up spills.  My eldest daughter is often spilling her water and I used the Kärcher Window Vac to suck up the spillage from the wooden floor.  It worked really well.

I have one small downside with the Kärcher Window Vac and that is the size of the wiper.  Although it is great for large surfaces such as windows or patio doors, it is not great for smaller panes of glass such as those found on an internal door.  It is also not suitable if the glass window was circular, for example, as the blade would not be able to move to create a streak free shine.  Perhaps additional blades should be made available to cope with different shape and sized window.

Kärcher Window Vac is overall very light weight and easy to use and gives the best possible results in window cleaning.  I think this would also make an excellent Fathers Day gift and had my Dad not gone out and purchased one I would have got him one.
