Let’s be honest: hoovering the house is no one’s favourite chore. No matter what model of vacuum you have, tangled wires, awkward angles and the graft of having to lug what is usually a fairly hefty bit of kit around after you mean it often ends up being one of the most frustrating tasks of the day.
But what if we told you you could now buy a hoover that would do all of the hard work for you, and won’t cost you a fortune for the privilege? Before you decide that it’s too good to be true, let us introduce you to the new Aldi robot vacuum cleaner – a gem of a gadget designed to effortless bust the dust in any space.
Priced at just £129.99, the Easy Home Robotic Vacuum Cleaner, is surprisingly affordable when compared to household names like the iRobot Roomba, models of which are currently on sale for between £300 and £500. Even offerings from other lower-priced brands hover around the £179 mark, so the Aldi version represents a serious saving against almost every comparable purchase – but don’t underestimate its powers.
Once charged (using rechargeable batteries and its own docking station), the clever device takes care of crumbs and other dust and dirt in a matter of minutes without you having to lift a finger. There’s the option to set it off to do its thing automatically, or manage its movements via remote control, but you can still do the latter from the comfort of your sofa.
The Aldi robot vacuum runs for up to 90 minutes, more than enough time to sweep up a pretty sizeable area, and comes equipped with anti-collision sensors and anti-fall sensors so you don’t have to worry about it cleaning at the top of the stairs. Its slimline shape also means it’s perfect for sliding under items of furniture that you might not normally be inclined to clean beneath on a regular basis, like under the sofa or low-set cabinets.
Tempted to add it to your cleaning arsenal? Head to the Aldi website now to place your order, as its an online exclusive that you won’t find in store. Once it’s in situ, you might find that the only thing that’s gathering dust is… well, your old hoover.
