13 years of trying and today is the day I FINALLY achieved streak free windows - here's how

*This is a collaborative post

I work from home and from around the end of November I have switched from working in my usual office in the conservatory to the table in my front room. It is just more cosy in there and I like working with the Christmas food channel on in the background at this time of year (Sky channel 133 - you need it in your life).

One thing that has bugged me about working in here though is just how streaky my windows are! The low winter sun streams through the window and no matter what I try, they just stay streaky! At the end of November I spent a good 45 minutes trying to achieve a streak free finish. With a combination of 'special' cloths and glass cleaner, I thought I'd done just that. But then what do you know, the next day, the sun reappears and my windows look worse than ever! OMG I was at my wits end.

I've tried everything in the past - vinegar and newspaper, glass cleaner, special wipes.......nothing worked! Then as if by magic an email landed in my inbox asking if I'd like to review a Vileda Windomatic Window Vacuum Cleaner. You know you're getting old when this is the sort of thing that excites you! I was sceptical as nothing had worked for me in the past but I was willing to try anything and agreed to put it through it's paces.

The Vileda Windomatic retails at £49.99 (although there is currently 20% off if you order via their website) and has received the Good Housekeeping Institute seal of approval for 2016.

In the box you'll receive the main vacuum, the wiper blade and a mains charger plus a couple of instruction manuals (in every language known to man).

The Vileda Windomatic is super easy to put together and not at all technical - you simply click the blade in place. Ours arrived already charged too so we were good to go straight away.

First of all, I love how light weight the vacuum is and it is very ergonomic - it fits very easily in your hand. The neck of the cleaner is flexible meaning it is super easy to use.

To use, you simply spray your window with window cleaner or water, turn on the vacuum and glide over your window. The way that it 'sucks up' all of the moisture is very impressive and there isn't a single streak in sight.

When you're done, simply detach the water reservoir bottle and empty. It honestly could not be easier. The bottle is dishwasher safe too.

My reviews are always 100% honest and I promise you will not be disappointed with this product. I loved it so much I had to text my mam about it!

What I liked about the Vileda Windomatic Vacuum Cleaner


  • Super easy to use, lightweight and ergonomic
  • Rechargeable battery included and the charge lasts around 15-20 minutes
  • Wire free - no need to plug in when using
  • It actually works - we now have streak free and sparkling windows
  • Quiet
  • Easy to steer with no 'dragging'
  • You can also use the vacuum for liquid spillages (perfect for mopping up any spilled wine this festive season) and it works a treat on mirrors too
  • Because it's cordless, you can also use it on your car windows 
I am actually a bit obsessed with my cleaner now and can't wait for January when I'm going to give the house a full clean and clean every window. My `actual window cleaner won't know what's hit him when he cleans our windows and they are actually clean on the other side too!

Room for Improvement


I would love it if there was also a smaller attachment. I have a door with square glass panels that goes from my kitchen to my conservatory and it gets covered in finger marks from the kids. The Vileda blade is just a tiny bit too big for these panels. Gutted! 

I've created a short video below so you can see the Vileda Windomatic Vacuum Cleaner in action:-
