WV1 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy peasy I usually use a window cleaning squeezy for cleaning Windows, both at home and work. I was a little apprehensive in using the WV1 thinking it wouldn't be as quick as the squeezy. My first attempt at using the WV1, I didn't get it down the full window and had to change round to wipe the window horizontally. A slight change in my grip changed this and now I can do the full window vertically. Also I didn't wipe the blade, as I would normally do. This left a bit too much solution at the top of the window. A quick wipe of the blade solved that problem. The WV1 does leave a streak from window, and on mirrors its excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic results Used this for the first time today and ended up looking for more things to clean! Leaves a shiny, streak free finish and especially good for mirrors, which always looked filmy in the sunshine. Was astounded at how dirty the water in the tank was, especially as I use a well known window cleaner on a regular basis. Recommend the karcher window detergent, dilute in a spray bottle , clean with microfibre cloth and finish with the window vac. Perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless and faultless every time! I turned in to an obsessed cleaning machine when the window vac arrived, testing it out on everything; windows, mirrors, high gloss tv unit, shower screen, etc. Effortless and faultless every time. For me this product is most useful at clearing condensation from windows, before I was using a squeegee to clear the condensation, creating puddles on the windowsills not anymore! The lightweight easy to use WV1 handheld window cleaner clears them with zero fuss, sucking away the water and really does leave them streak-free, clean and dry. The width of cleaning head seems just about right for most areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant.... The truth is you don't know how much you have missed it until you start using it. My shower enclosure door was a mess mainly as we live in a hard water area, you have to wash it with extra strength cleaning product, then the issue is rinsing it, I don't have that issue anymore, with the Karcher WV1, I just scrub and squeegee it off, i sucks up the suds and leaves a brilliant finish...I have also done the patio doors and i am very impressed. d say if you are reading this review, then you are already interested, go and buy it...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality finish from a sturdy product. I have previously had two karcher jet-washers and found them to be very useful and highly reliable products. From first impressions this product has the same quality attributes. So far It seems to be a sturdy product and is easy to use. The water container snaps neatly into place an is easy to remove and empty when finished cleaning. So far I have used the product to clean our two showers and outside windows on one charge. It leaves an immaculate finish, but It can be a bit tight when reaching the bottom edge of the shower, so best to switch angle at the end of the stroke. Interestingly I have also used it to remove the excess water off the roof of my estate car after washing ( As this usually takes multiple passes with a shammy) and this also proved to be a success saving me quite a bit of time. Finally I can also see this would be most useful for any-one in a house with high levels of condensation on internal windows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Multi-use Gadget Lightweight, solid build with great battery life and simplistic to use. We have many windows within reach of young children therefore I was pleasantly pleased with how quick I can now "degrubb" my house! A quick lather up of the windows with some washing up liquid and a dash of white vinegar and then you can put the WV1 into action. I simple start from top to bottom in one stroke and repeat depending on the width of the window. No streaks, no drips and it's that easy! It's very quick to use. Other great uses include shower rooms, granite surfaces, mirrors and de-misting or removing condensation. But the biggest bonus is it's ability to clean up liquid spills from hard-floor! Hooray! You'll make your money back in kitchen roll savings in the first year alone! An excellent rating would be given if it had the ability to spray & clean the window.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Streak Free Cleaning I was a little sceptical about this product, after all it doesn't actually clean the windows, it just sucks up the moisture. However on its' first trial I found cleaning the patio doors a doddle. I cleaned the glass with water and detergent using a window cleaners t-bar then used the vacuum to suck up the liquid. It was very quick and easy to create a streak free shine. Much quicker and less messy than using a normal squeegee. I'd give 5 stars if there was a washing device and vacuum incorporated into the same product.
