RELAX, LET THE VILEDA CLEANING ROBOT DO THE CLEANING

It may have once seemed impossible, but we now live in an age where robots can do our cleaning for us. Here at Vileda, we have recently introduced the Relax Cleaning Robot which moves intelligently around your home to help you sweep and vacuum dirt and dust from your floors.

One of the best things about the Relax Cleaning Robot is that it can be trusted to do the cleaning when it’s home alone. The Relax Cleaning Robot has a cliff sensor system on its base, it can detect any sudden drop and changes direction accordingly to avoid falls. If it encounters anything blocking its path, it not only bumps back softly, but also automatically reverses and moves elsewhere.
Relax Cleaning Robot uses a 3-step cleaning system which lets it clean even these hard to reach areas:

1. Lateral brushes for around edges of the room and furniture
2. Rotating brushes to pick up stray particles
3. Vacuum power to suck up dust and hair

So sit back, put your feet up and enjoy life while Vileda’s Relax Cleaning Robot does the work for you.

Relax Cleaning Robot uses a rechargeable NiMh battery which lasts up to 80 minutes at a time. The Robot requires no refill or dust bags, simply empty out the dirt directly into your dustbin.

Chasing summer dust

As we salsa into summer, many of you will have noticed already that pollen and dust is all around us. It has drifted silently into our homes and given us a new challenge to focus on.

Constant need for dusting and re-wiping can be quite demotivating, therefore here at Vileda we wanted to share a few tips on how to keep your home feeling fresh this summer.

Firstly, a clean home is safe from germs as many health hazards are related to clutter or grime. Clutter can collect dirt and dust, and as children play and crawl on the floor we should always make sure we provide them with a clean environment for discovering new things safely.

One of the greatest benefits of keeping your home sparkling clean during summer is that you will be able to breathe more easily in more ways than one. A dirty home can contribute to passing around colds and germs. Your home doesn’t have to be sterile but a tidy, dust and dirt-free environment can help keep all family members healthier.

What is more, a clean environment lets you concentrate and relax better. Having a clean house removes that nagging inner voice telling you that you need to clean this, or organise that. You are able to focus on things you enjoy, like reading a book or watching a movie with your feet up.

Last but not least, we should be proud of our home and ensure it is clean and tidy as you never know when friends might drop by.

Cleaning Up After Pets

Fed up cleaning up after pets? News out this week tells us that pets are costing up to £872million worth of damage to UK homes every single year! This means mischievous moggies and playful pups cost each home £231 annually – a staggering amount I think you’ll agree.

The research, conducted by BT and reported in the Metro and Daily Mail, listed ripped wallpaper, torn pillows, chewed pipes and stains on the carpets as some of the main problems caused by our furry friends.

Quite a few of us here at Vileda have cats and dogs but we must be fairly lucky as they are all slightly better behaved! However, homes with pets do need cleaning that little bit extra to tidy away all the extra dust, dirt and hair. Luckily, many Vileda products are perfect for pet-friendly homes:

3 Action broom

• Ensure hair today is gone tomorrow with the 3Action Broom!
Rectangular bristles combined with normal bristles make it easier to pick up hair from the floor, while angled, harder bristles on the edge mean balls of fluff can’t hide away in the corner

Vileda SuperMocio 3Action cleans up after pets

• Wet cleaning is essential, try the SuperMocio 3Action Mop
Wet cleaning is by far the most thorough method of cleaning muddy paw prints on hard floors. The SuperMocio 3Action features a spot eraser to give extra scouring power when tackling stubborn marks and a special microfibre zone to remove greasy residue easily. Added 3D velour spots pick up more dirt particles and hair than ever before.

Power Scourer Nonscratch cleans up after pets

• Don’t make a meal of it – choose the right scourer for scrubbing food bowls
Pet food should come off the dish fairly easily. If it doesn’t, just be careful, especially if the dish is ceramic, stainless steel or glass. If you scrub too hard, you risk scratching the surface of the bowl. The Vileda Non Scratch Power Scourer is a sensible choice for scrubbing as it’s designed for tackling materials like ceramic. The scourer’s sealed surface also means it stays fresher and cleaner for longer and is easier to rinse.

SuperMocio mop celebrates its 25th birthday

This year our SuperMocio mop celebrates its 25th birthday, that’s 25 years long service in the home and 25 years of innovation and evolving design.

The success of the SuperMocio mop is held by the fact that it has been evolving with time. Now at the age of 25 Vileda’s latest design is SuperMocio 3Action.

The SuperMocio 3Action boasts a non-scratch power spot eraser and microfibre zone, making it a perfect solution for getting rid of stubborn and greasy marks on tiled and vinyl flooring. The SuperMocio 3Action mop can easily help you maintain your floors sparkling clean for years to come.

Another great feature of the SuperMocio 3Action is its 3D velour spots which are made up of millions of small fibres. These fibres offer great dirt pick-up and dirt release into the bucket.

Last but not the least, one of the best things about the SuperMocio is durability. SuperMocio is long lasting, the mop head can be washed in the washing machine and used time and time again.

To celebrate SuperMocio’s success and its 25th birthday we are offering customers a FREE surprise gift with every promotional SuperMocio Mop purchased. We have over £1million worth of giveaways with prizes ranging from Vileda products, Caffè Nero vouchers and chocolates to a host of chilled, leisurely and thrilling experiences.

To enter, customers must buy a Supermocio with the feature handle wrap. The wrap gives details of how to enter, and also features a unique reference code, which is revealed when a latex panel is scratched off. The promotion began on Monday 2nd June and will close on Sunday 31st August – whilst stocks last.

Essential Kitchen Cleaning Kit

We all know that when it comes to cleaning you need the right tools for the job for a shining result. So to help you, we decided to put together a ‘shopping list’ that can give you some ideas of what to put in your kitchen cleaning kit.

For pots and pans, choose the Vileda Active Wave sponge scourer which makes light work of removing dirt effectively without scratching. The sponge scourer is appropriate for Teflon non-stick coatings or other non-coated surfaces.

For surfaces, choose the Microfibre Kitchen Cloth which combines soft microfibre with a power zone design. The soft microfibre surface is great for polishing and removes greasy dirt, whilst the power zone area tackles burnt on dirt without scratching. Plus, the power of microfibre means no need for harsh chemicals.

For dusty shelves try the Microfibre Dust Cloth that removes up to 40% more dust than traditional dusters. After dusting you can then use the Vileda Style Sunsplash All Purpose Cloth to wipe surfaces and clean out your cupboards too.

For getting your kitchen floor sparkling clean choose the SuperMocio 3Action mop with a telescopic handle or the SuperMocio 3Action Compact mop which can be stored in small cupboards and tight spaces.The SuperMocio 3Action has 3D velour spots which offer great dirt pick-up. The mop boasts a non-scratch power spot eraser and a microfibre zone, making it a perfect solution for getting rid of stubborn and greasy marks on tiled and vinyl flooring.
