Spring cleaning is imminent? The UniversalBrush from Bosch now makes cleaning even more efficient and more thorough. With its rotating head and different attachments, the cordless cleaning brush frees even hard-to-reach areas from stubborn dirt while being gentle on surfaces. Strenuous manual scrubbing is therefore a thing of the past. Kitchen, bathroom, car, barbecue, chairs and much more besides: The UniversalBrush is a handy household helper – both indoors and outdoors – and makes surfaces shine again. This small whirlwind doesn’t even stop when other tools already give up: The UniversalBrush continues to rotate even at higher pressure, thus ensuring powerful cleaning.

Various attachments – countless cleaning possibilities

The cordless cleaning brush is waterproof and can be used for both dry and wet applications with cleaning agents. Five accessories are included in the scope of delivery: Three attachments which can be replaced by means of a simple click system – a brush, a detailed brush and a pad holder – as well as a heavy duty pad and a microfiber pad. The brush is ideal for cleaning extremely dirty surfaces such as lime scale on tiles along with tile joints or even car wheel rims. The detailed brush makes it easy to remove dirt on hard-to-reach areas, e.g. in corners, around the faucet or in window and door profiles. The different cleaning pads can be used with the pad holder and are simply fixed in place with Velcro. The brown heavy duty pad reliably removes very stubborn deposits, e.g. burnt food on a barbecue grill, in a cast-iron pan or in an oven – and also easily eliminates small patches of rust. The blue microfiber pad cleans stainless steel pots, ceramic hobs, sinks, fittings and glass doors of showers quickly and gently. A green kitchen pad and a white melamine pad are also available. The kitchen pad frees, for example, oven glass from adhering dirt, while the melamine pad is the right choice for sensitive surfaces such as chair covers or car seats. Shoes, door and glass surfaces are also cleaned without leaving any residues. Once the work is done, the UniversalBrush can be cleaned simply and quickly under running water. The attachments and pads can of course be reused and are dishwasher-safe up to a temperature of 50° Celsius. The handy helper is also quickly ready for use again thanks to the Micro USB cable.

Anyone who also wants to clean their windows quickly without any squeaks or streaks can use GlassVac from Bosch. This cordless window vacuum is a popular household helper thanks to its unique wiper rubber technology and a compact design which enables vacuuming close to edges.
