Dry those drawers in the summer air!

The summer sun has got his hat on and he’s coming out to play! The warm weather gives us the perfect excuse to get out into the garden this season, but also presents us with the perfect opportunity to air our laundry in that fresh, summer breeze.

 

Why not put a bit of summer zest in your vests and try our Cordomatic (RRP £10.99) the space-saving seamless solution for any drying dilemma.

If you are stuck for space or like a more minimalist look in your garden, this wall mountable unit is compact but has a line length which extends up to 15m.  This can be easily retracted back into the unit when not in use to keep your lines clean and also helps keep your garden tidy.  It can also be used indoors.

 

The Cordomatic is also made of strong and durable plastic with galvanised steel fittings, so can withstand wear and tear.

 

Refresh your rugs with the Steam Mop

 

Is your carpet in need of some TLC and a bit of a revamp? Now you can refresh your carpets, rugs and bedding (yes bedding!) with our Steam Mop which combines the power of steam cleaning with our superior fibre technology complete with carpet glider.

 

The Carpet Glider fits easily over the microfibre pad so your carpets can be fresh and ready in no time! The Steam Mop also easily ‘cut rugs’ thanks to the special swivel head, which enables it to glide around the furniture and objects in your home. Caring for your carpets has never been easier.

 

 

 

As well as being the lightest steam mop on the market*, our Steam Mop (RRP £89.99), which kills 99.9% of bacteria without the use of chemicals, is ready to use in just only 15 seconds, with a tank that lasts for up to 28 minutes cleaning time.

Va va vrooooooom away dirt with the Windomatic

Do you find keeping your car screen and windows clean a tiresome and trying task? We often find grit and grime can build up easily on the glass surfaces of our vehicle and cleaning away the debris while leaving a streak-free shine can be problematic with your average sponge or cloth. Fear not, as Vileda can lend a helping hand in the form of the Windomatic (RRP £49.99), part of the new electricals range.

 

With its flexible head and rubber lip for getting into hard-to-reach corners and edges, the Windomatic is lightweight and ergonomically designed to suck away the dirty water from car windows and screens, leaving a streak-free shiny finish all the way to the edge and reducing the cleaning time by up to 50%.

The Windomatic sucks away water instantly and can be used vertically and horizontally with the suction power spread evenly and efficiently across the width. Not only that, it has been given the trustworthy Tried and Tested seal of approval by the Good Housekeeping Institute, so you know it is a product you can rely on.

 

Whether you steer in style with a Porsche Boxster, or keep it casual with a Vauxhall Corsa, with just one charge, the Windomatic can cover a cleaning area of 60m²; perfect if your car requires a speedy clean with minimal effort.

 

Wipe away your window woes

Grubby finger marks? Stubborn water stains? Window cleaning can be a tough gig if you don’t have the right equipment.

 

We know that window cleaning is one of the nation’s least favourite cleaning jobs, but luckily we have some great tips and products designed to make the task of window cleaning much easier and leave your windows and glass squeaky clean and streak-free.

1. Soak a cloth or sponge in some warm soapy water, then squeeze out the excess water and wipe your windows using a circular motion. Repeat in order to remove stubborn dirty stains, regularly rinsing the cloth.

 

2. To remove the water, the Windomatic windowvacuum (RRP £49.99) is fast and efficient; using 50% less time and effort, leaving your windows with a streak-free shine. The flexible head and the suction power along the blade completely removes all water and water stains, even into the corners. As well as being ideal for windows, the Windomatic is ideal for sills, spills, shower screens and mirrors. Don’t just take our word for it, the Windomatic has received the stamp of approval from one of the UK’s most prestigious product testing organisations, the Good Housekeeping Institute (GHI).

3. If you don’t have a Windomatic and want a fluff-free shiny finish, our Window and Glass Cloth (RRP £1.59) is a synthetic chamois that is equipped with a special coating with micro-pores which significantly improves drying performance. Simply buff windows in a circular motion to leave a shiny streak-free finish. As well as being extra long-lasting, the Window and Glass Cloth is machine washable so you can use it time and time again.

Move the mess with a helping hand

With the weather warming up and the kids running riot, we tend to find mess and dirt quickly gathers along the floors and hallways of our homes as children and pets traipse in and out of the house. As time is of the essence whilst watching the kids, we have the perfect products designed to help combat the mess quickly and easily.

With one simple sweep our DuActiva Broom (£6.49), can get rid of any stray leaves, grass and dirt brought in from the garden for good.

The bristles on this dual action broom are designed to sweep up dust and dirt in only one fell swoop, along with the foam layer that creates a barrier to stop dust escaping, meaning your floors are left debris-free.

 

What’s more, the telescopic handle means you can get in those hard to reach places, and adjusts to a length that suits you.

 

For stubborn dirt such as sticky footprints and muddy paw prints, our light-weight Steam Mop (£89.99) kills 99.9% of bacteria without the use of chemicals and is ready to use in only 15 seconds with a tank that lasts for up to 28 minutes cleaning time.

Ideal for use on all hard sealed floors, it also comes with a handy Carpet Glider attachment, so you can steam away any smelly odours left behind.

 

The Steam Mop comes with two durable microfibre pads which offer a superior cleaning performance and can be popped straight into the washing machine after use.

 

With the DuActiva Broom and Steam Mop by your side, it’s one less summer holiday hassle for you to think about; leaving time for you to have fun with the kids.
