iEcology, vacuum and steam cleaner by Osim
Since I moved to this new apartment more than a month ago, Iíve been getting by using a tiny little broom. There comes a time when a girl has to choose between a simple hand broom, and a powerful vacuum cleaner. And Iíd have to say, the lure of a powerful vacuum cleaner is winning day by day.
In fact, I should get triple excited, as Osimís iEcology promises to combine and replace not just one or two, but three household tools. This triple cleaning device acts as a vacuum cleaner to suck up dirt and dust; it can act as a steam cleaner to dislodge stubborn stains and kill germs; and it can act as a mop by using a combination of steam and vacuum to clean and sanitize.
This water-based vacuum gives you super hot steam that cuts through and loosens dirt and grime - from stubborn grease stains in the kitchen and moldy tiles in the bathroom, to the upholstery in the living room and mattresses and bedding in the bedrooms. The vacuum sucks it up, ridding your house of any germs or dust mites present in one easy step. This effectively cleans and sanitizes, all at once with nothing to wipe away, no dirty cloths to change.
You know what else? There is no vacuum bag to replace, which means, six months from now, you donít have to go play that annoying ďmatch your vacuum bag numberĒ game at Sears. All you have to do is dump out the bucket of water after youíre done!
The Osim iEcologi comes in black or white, and equipped with more attachments than you can shake a stick at. Priced at $6,880 HKD, not the cheapest vacuum cleaner on the market, but potentially can be extremely useful. Now, if only it could cook me a meal at the same time as well . . .
