I Hate Cleaning My Windows!

The title says it all, I really do hate cleaning my windows. It has to be one of the most frustrating housework tasks of all time especially at this time of year. Being freezing outside and hot inside lends itself to some pretty major condensation rearing it's ugly head and if you don't deal with it you can bet the mold and damp will start to grow. Of course I'm also not forgetting about how I have to dry clothes inside at this time of year, usually in the study, cue even more condensation and dripping windows. It honestly drives me nuts. I normally run around each window every morning wiping it down quickly with a towel leaving massive streaks for the neighbours to tut about but not this year! This year Vileda and their Windomatic have come to my rescue.

The Vileda Windomatic is a cordless portable lightweight hand held devise which promises to make your window cleaning life easier. It's quick and easy to use meaning you can whip round your windows in minutes. It can be used after washing your windows, for removing window condensation, wiping mirrors or cleaning up spills. It basically removes water from windows by using the wide wiper blade which has quite efficient suction power. The flexible head means you have the perfect ability to angle the Windomatic right into the corners of the window giving you maximum cleaning power. It all sounds rather fab doesn't it.
When I received the Windomatic through the post I was strangely filled with a buzz of excited. I tore it out of the box and was pleased to see it requires minimal assembly. Even my soon to be 2 year old could do this. I clicked it together then stuck it on charge. From the information in the instruction manual it advised 6hrs to fully charge. I did try and turn in on before charging and was surprised when it whirred into life. So if you're that eager I'm sure you could do a window or two before a full charge when it first arrives.

After it was all charged I was eager and ready to get to business. I decided since the windomatic isn't just for windows that I'd try it on the big mirror in my hall. I sprayed it up and pushed the button to turn on the windomatic. Literally within seconds my mirror was shining and clean. I did note that it didn't look as streak free as maybe using a cloth and some elbow grease however using the Vileda Windomatic required no effort at all and I was happy with the results.

Next on the list was Harlow and her water bottle. She likes to empty it upside down where ever she sees fit and that happened to be her little blue table one day. Not a problem any more though as out comes the windomatic, quick button push and the spillage has now vanished. The table was totally dry, I was majorly impressed with this. Saves tons of paper towels anyway.

My kitchen windows are a pain in the butt to clean. I'm tall but trying to reach into the top corners of the windows has me stretching in all kinds of ways my body can't deal with anymore. Step forward the windomatic and hey presto nice clean shiny windows. Again not as streak free as I'd have liked but still a truly awesome job for very little output in the first place.

What I really like about the Vileda Windomatic is that there's no drips from the 100ml container and it's totally easy to clean. You basically clip it out, pull off the top, pull out the plastic bit in the middle and rinse. Shove it all back together in seconds, clip it back into place and you're done. Ready to rock and roll again. It's recommended that you can get up to 20 minutes of cleaning between each charge and I literally spent a couple of minutes on each window so that's plenty of time to go round a 4 bedroom house. Oh and I almost forgot. This piece of kit is really lightweight making it easy for anyone of any age to use and I bet the kids could get right into this. I've been cleaning when Logan is at school but I might have to get him involved!

I'd give the windomatic 4 out of 5 stars personally as I really liked it. It's simply, easy and functional and doesn't require a multi tool to put it together. So if you fancy one of these bad boys in your life then they're available from Amazon at a normal retail price of £49.99 but currently on offer at just under £30.00! Bit of a bargain for you there I say.

I was sent the Vileda Windomatic product free of charge in return for an honest review.
