Kärcher’s guide to taking the stress out of shopping for mother's day
Mother's Day will soon be at our door, which means it's time to start thinking about how you're going to cement yourself as mum's 'favourite'. Obviously you can't buy your mother's love, but you can buy her time, by reducing the amount of house she spends cleaning around the home.
This revolutionary Floor Cleaner features a two-in-one function that lets you vac and mop wet and dry dirt in just one step. Available at most retailers including Harvey Norman, Bunnings Warehouse and JB Hi-Fi for just $349, there's no need to vacuum beforehand – mopping has never been easier, faster or more thorough. The automatically moistened, rotating microfibre rollers pick dirt up, while the water-dirt mixture is continuously suctioned off the rollers at the same time. This practical self-cleaning function keeps the rollers fresh and ready to use at all times. The FC 5 uses up to 85% less water while providing significantly better cleaning performance. The FC 5 can be used on all standard hard floors, whether they are made of wood, stone or plastic.
Fast, streak-free results can be achieved with minimal effort using a Window Vac, such as the Kärcher WV2 PREMIUM ($96, available at Bunnings nationwide). After washing down each pane, this little helper sucks up dirty water into a tank so it doesn’t end up on the floor. The soft rubber squeegee also protects window seals while you work.
Steam cleaners use the powerful combination of pressure and heat to dissolve filth, and a round brush removes lingering encrustations without damaging the surface. This can then be wiped clean with a cloth. The handy SC1 PREMIUM ($129, available at Harvey Norman nationwide) is perfect for these tasks. Just make sure you unplug electrical devices before starting.
For those looking for a brand new feature-packed cleaning toy, Kärcher has launched the new VC 5 handheld vacuum cleaner ($349, available at Bunnings Warehouse), currently available in Victoria and Tasmania with more markets to follow. This highly portable bit of kit features a 3-fold telescopic suction tube, making it perfect for anyone of any height. Additionally, it features a 3-stage bagless filter system that’s quick and easy to empty.

Stop them in their muddy tracks with this compact and lightweight cleaner, which is perfectly balanced when it comes to having gentle low pressure for washing sensitive paws, delicate equipment or boots, while rinsing away dirt and messes. Available at Bunnings Warehouse for just $199.
