I have a confession to make. It's time to come clean. I love ironing. I know it’s unusual but there’s just something about getting a freshly washed, crisp and crinkly clean shirt and making it smooth. Strange, but true.
I’ve also heard some women like vacuuming, but this I find very hard to believe. Now, that is weird.
Given this, I’d love to introduce you to the ROBOMAID – the best thing for Mums since daytime TV.
Sure, I’d heard of Robo Cop and Robo Chicken, but when I heard a ROBOMAID was in the mail and headed for my home, I truly didn’t know what to expect – a Robin Williams’ Bicentennial Man robot or a digital version of the Brady Bunch’s Alice perhaps?
Turns out neither is even remotely (excuse the pun) what I unpacked. The ROBOMAID in fact actually looks like a mini UFO and is the latest in clever home-help gadgetry, making your life easier in cleaning your floors, freeing up your valuable time to do the other more important things in your life.
This robotic vacuum cleaner is compact, and light enough to be carried from room to room; yet heavy-duty enough to single-handily clean floors – both carpets and boards.
To use this nifty vacuum robot, it’s as simple as plug and play – after the initial charge time of 12 hours (only required once prior to commencement), she was ready to work, whisking around my house, under tables and the couch (yes, she re-emerged unscathed some minutes later); effortlessly picking up hair, dust, dirt and even those (*insert squeal here) belly-up cockroaches.
The ROBOMAID is also smart enough to know when to stop – she comes programmable to recognise a no-go zone (think a ledge, a step or a china cabinet) and can also mop as well as vacuum, killing bacteria along the way.
Best of all, the ROBOMAID comes with a remote, is cordless and hello – there are no dirty bags to clean.
