We all know the feeling: Our laboriously cleaned windows show up streaks in the sunlight or dirt in the corners and at the edges. Buckets knocked over, dirty dishcloths, wet newspaper – window cleaning is a pain. But the GlassVac, Bosch’s first cordless window vacuum, is here to help. A particular advantage is that the wiper blade utilizes existing Bosch expertise from the automotive sector. The GlassVac wiper blade has “Power Protection Plus”, an innovative wiper-rubber technology with polymer coating, which until now had been used only for windscreen wipers from Bosch. This technology now also guarantees clean results at home: The wiper blade glides effortlessly over surfaces because it generates very little friction, so that streaks and annoying squeaking noises are a thing of the past. The wiper lip is also very robust and durable and lasts longer than conventional rubber lips.

Clean windows indoors and outdoors, glass surfaces, tiles, mirrors or shower cubicles and also vacuum spilled liquids – the GlassVac can do it all. At the same time, the cordless window vacuum boasts an exceptionally compact design: At a height of only 22 centimeters it is shorter than equivalent competitor models to clean right up to the surface edge.

Say goodbye to buckets and newspaper! Easy cleaning in two steps

The GlassVac is ready to use at any time. It cleans windows and smooth surfaces in two steps. Step one: Mix detergent with water in the applicator and spray it on the surface. Any conventional detergent can be used. The spray nozzle is adjustable so the spray pattern can be adapted to the surface area. Stubborn dirt can be removed at the same time with the integrated microfiber cloth, which can be easily detached for washing. The spray applicator sits comfortably in your hand and can be set down safely on its broad base. Step two: Switch on the GlassVac, place it against the window, or other smooth surfaces, and start vacuuming. The tool offers two wiper heads for different applications and surfaces: 133 and 266 millimeters wide. The products tank, which collects the dirty water, can be emptied quickly and easily by opening the rubber plug on the tank and pouring out the water.

Other features of the cordless window vacuum include an integrated LED light, which displays the battery charge, and a micro-USB charger simply used to re-charge the GlassVac. It also comes with a wrist strap: clean effortlessly without the risk of dropping the tool.

The GlassVac is available since March 2018 onwards. The prices listed are recommended retail prices including VAT. Subject to change.
