Is this only for glass or does it clean other things? I have cream leather seats in my car and they get very grubby and I cant get them really clean I have tried most of the normal leather cleaners but they make very little difference.Would this gadget work on the seats the reason I asked is a few years ago I saw a steam cleaner on QVC the shopping channel and they demonstrated it on many different surfaces but maybe that was something different?

Now that is an interesting thought, my cream leather settee has become dirty over the years. And whatever i try, nothing cleans it, so i would also be interested in knowing the answer.

I doubt whether the window vac will work on leather seats. It doesn't actually clean anything, it's more or less a wiper blade with a vacuum attached. You have to wash your window with soapy water and then draw the blade down the window and it sucks the water and soap up into the little container. It leaves the glass very dry and streak free and is also much quicker than other methods of window cleaning. I also use it to dry the walls in the shower.

Came in from shopping tonight and thought I'd have a quick go with my window vac.......I only did two french doors (four doors really )...........I loved it.........only 8 more windows to do in the Conservatory, 10 more in the House, 2 sets of patio doors and a glass front door.......phew!!!! .......oh, and then the caravan

I loved it, but not that much

I think you will get to love it once you get used to it....... its hard going cleaning windows, but the vac does make it easier, i use a soapy microfibre cloth to wash windows, then have a clean and dry one to wipe sill and frames with afterwards - easy.

50 in B&Q but we also bought the extra blade at 15.......but if you're of a certain age (which we're not), you could probably get discount on pensioner day

We could have got it for 42 the day before at Costco but hubby wasn't convinced enough to buy one........I think they're 60 with 6.00 delivery on Ideal World and you get some cloths and some solution........but I just got some microfibre cloths from Poundstretcher (1) and some Stardrops (1).

If you click on the link in my signature I've just added a picture of the water tank on the Karcher window vac. You can just about see the tank is half full.

This is just off my bedroom window alone! As you know I have an old girl so no gch or dg so now its colder we get very condensated. This vac is FAB

well I dont like mushrooms or cleaning windows - I avoid both at all costs lol. This isnt cleaning them though its removing the water/condensation that accumulates on them overnight when its cold. x
