When it comes to keeping a clean house, it's all about working smart, not hard (which has become our life motto, too). Whether you love to clean or loathe having to tackle household chores, the right products make all the difference.
Which is where the Vax Steam Fresh Combi Multifunction Steam Cleaner comes in.
Its sole purpose is to make cleaning jobs effortlessly easy and efficient - precisely the opposite aim of our children and pets.
Why we rate it:
Forget 2-in-1 or even 5-in-1, this nifty steam cleaner is 15-in-1, with a detachable handheld cleaner and a 10-piece kit to tackle all sorts of jobs around the house.
Firstly, it can ensure that your floors sparkle without damaging them, thanks to the variable steam control, which tailors the cleaning power to the type of floor you have.
Plus, its detachable handheld cleaner can be used for almost every cleaning task in your home, from cleaning your oven and windows, to taps and mirrors.
Best of all, if you have guests arriving at any moment, the Vax Steam cleans and dries in just three minutes.
Plus, it promises to get rid of 99.9% of harmful germs and bacteria for up to seven days due to its combination of specially formulated detergents and powerful steam.
While it's usually already under £100 (£79.99 from John Lewis), the rather affordable gadget that could make your cleaning a doddle is currently on sale, down to £59.99 - and after reading the hundreds of five star reviews you won't want to miss this deal.
