Does anyone have/use a window vac?

I've had to give the window cleaners notice after they 'forgot' to do upstairs AGAIN.

We have 3 skylights and 2 large bi fold doors - will a window vac be best? Any recommendations?

I have a karcher window vac. Window cleaner dies outside of front windows and I do inside the fronts and inside and outside the back including a conservatory with glass to the floor.

I wash with warm water a little washing up liquid and a glug of white vinegar then finish off with the vac.

Love it!

Well worth having does the windows in minutes, great for condensation in the winter and also use it on my shower screens everyday, also really good for mirrors one of the best gadgets I have.

My Karcher has died and Homebase won't stock it again. I'm crying.

I have a spare window vac if anyone would like it. It's not the karcher one it's the vax. I'm not entirely sure we still have the charger either but the cleaner works well. We ended up with two after I bought one and so did DH and never took the other back.

I brought a Karcher about a year ago, well worth the money cleans the windows up real good.

Thanks for the replies - I'm going to get one. Any recommendations?

I'd love your spare one Hammer - if you aren't going to sell/return it?

Sarah,you are welcome to it but you may have to get a charger if I can't find it. Message me your address and I'll sort it out.

Just before it got big I bought an ettore set which is what the window cleaners use-a mop & squeegee. Great job-want a karcher still, the V5 is supposed to be best-occasionally greatly discounted at Argos, but recommend getting an ettore golden glove to hot water, washing up liquid & vinegar & smear over window before sucking up
