Of all the activities we could do in our downtime at home, cleaning is not one that tops our list of favourites. But it has to be done.
So we are constantly on the lookout for things that will make our chores easier, meaning we can get our home looking in tip-top shape and still have time to watch Selling Sunset.
And we think we’ve found just the thing when it comes to cleaning carpets...
Powerful and ergonomic, the Vax Platinum Power Max Carpet Cleaner is able to remove up to 93% of bacteria, along with other fungi and allergens, leaving your carpets fresh and dry within an hour.
One. Single. Hour.
In case you’re not already completely sold, we’ve laid out all the need-to-know information below.
Why we love it:
We adore anything that makes cleaning easier, and this gadget does just that.
It claims to be able to clean any stubborn spot stains and spills on just about any fabric item in your home, from carpeted floors and stairs, to upholstery.
It also promises to lift away dirt deep-down in carpet fibres - great for the winter months when muddy footprints will be making an appearance.
As well as washing your carpets, the Platinum Power Max also rinses them, to remove any shampoo residue.
How it works:
With a large tank capacity, this carpet washer is also equipped with seven SpinScrub and rotating brushbars, so is able to clean deep within the carpet fibres, removing embedded dirt that vacuuming alone can't reach.
What the reviews say:
The handy cleaning device has received numerous five-star reviews on the John Lewis’ website. Here’s what customers have to say:
“We were impressed (and embarrassed) by the amount of dirt this thing removed from our carpets. Very impressive. Removing carpet fluff from around the brushes would be an irritation if you follow their instruction and undo all the screws on the base. However, I found that with a short length of soft plastic tubing (about 5mm diameter) it is quite easy to just push the carpet fluff around and out of the housing in only a few minutes.”
“I have used it once and my carpets came up wonderfully.”
“I thought my carpets were fairly clean until we used this. The amount of dirt it got out was incredible. The carpets look like new.”
On the Vax website the cleaner boasts almost 5,000 five star reviews, with customers saying:
“I am so impressed with my Vax Carpet Cleaner, I badly needed my hall, stairs and landing carpets cleaning after decorating. After cleaning with my Vax, the carpets looked amazing.”
“I was looking for a carpet cleaning service but prices are so high atm, so I have opted to buy the machine and do it by myself. It was the most incredible purchase I've had in months! does a very good job and definitely worth for the price you pay.”
“I bought the Vax platinum carpet cleaner having read many articles and reviews. The cleaner has lived up to the many favourable reports and reviews, so my expectations have been met in every way. The machine is very well built and designed, it is excellent at removing new and older stains and I can not find anything it was unable to clean up.”
