Always wanted one of these! Can’t wait to clean some tiles!! And look for a life whilst I look at my shiny clean tiles...!
For all those using this product to remove condensation from your windows, I'd suggest that you would be better off spending the money trying to find the root cause of your condensation problem. Simply shouldn't exist in any well maintained house...


The fact that you have condensation is going to be effecting your long term health.

I use it for removing condensation as I don't seem to have the knack of using it to clean windows without it still leaving marks/streaks
Can get the next model up for not much more although refurbished but does come with a 12 month warranty from Karcher.

This is really cheap, I paid more than this for mine without any of the extras
I have one and it is used on cold mornings to remove the condensation on windows. Does wet tiles well. Supper price too,
I found that the very best could be the wv2 premium (got 2 at £12.75 FROM TESCO IN 2017) and for a simple reason, does include a smaller blade. That is what I use at all times, it makes the suction more powerful and everything comes better and quicker in my opinion and can get everywhere with easy with no need to change for the less useful bigger blade. These smaller blades can also be purchase separately.

the vileda @ Homebase are still @ £10 and plenty stock everywere, if you learn to use it at the right angle it is as good or even better than the karcher. Some people complaining about the water coming out but the tank can be emptied with easy and also it should not be used upside down. I am going to make a modification to my vileda blade to make it smaller same or similar as the karcher smaller blade. I think you can still find the karcher wv2 premium at £30 in homebase

I've had one for years couldn't do with out it
I got a reconditioned one on a previous deal but it doesn't seem as powerful (or noisy) as my old first-generation one. Can anyone confirm if these new ones aren't quite as powerful as the originals?

not sure about but you can purchase a smaller blade which would make it more powerful and easier to control. You can attempt to modify the blade unit but I cannot guarantee the final results . Please read my previous post if it can help

correct, but most of the problems to our health are actually caused by dry air. Not easy to find a balance but an hygrometer can always definitely help. Many should stop using dehumidifiers when in reality are not needed.
For people abusing of the CH should use an humidifier instead or some water in proper containers on each radiator.
In winter we recycle the humidity/condensation and the heat caused by the shower/bath by leaving the bathroom door opened and not the window opened instead

Make sure you register your warranty - our hird gas just packed up - always problems with charging Batteries can’t take charge but can’t be replaced Struggled to get another replacement as it’s now over 2 years since original purchase even though latest vac is only a year old
Would it be better to use one of these or get a dehumidifier? Our bedroom is getting a bit of mould and much water condenses on the windows. I suspect that water collecting there contributes to the mould.


Appreciate any feedback. Cheers
I wish Karcher would make mobile phones as the battery life on these is amazing.
Thanks OP.
Just Ordered.
If you get humidity on your windows (which is sometimes unavoidable) buying a Hygrometer should be your first purchase to see where you stand, they are cheap. A room humidity too high can cause a volume of health issues and also promote mold growth and cost a lot lot more down the road.

If your humidity levels are showing over 60% on the hygrometer then invest in a dehumidifier and run it continuously until you can keep a stable 30-50% humidity, this will see your electric bill jump around £30 odd a month but this is your health we are talking about; it will stop mold spores in the air over time as well as collect some airborn dust particles. At this point if you still have humidity on the windows purchase a Window Vac and/or get your windows looked at. Hygrometer and dehumidifier in the UK is a way of life.

I would treat it as 2 separate issues and be careful how much humidity you take away from air and your daily amount of the right mixture for an healthy life. Very dry places can give much more problems than living in a moderately humid places. The condensation in your window will surely stay still there as it is the result of cold air out and warm humid hair inside (does not matter in which percentage, the higher the more of course) with a percentage of humidity which can be or can be not beneficial depends of the amount. You should buy an Hygrometer and make a decision if in reality you need a dehumidifier but make sure you test on different situations especially when the central heating is ON/OFF. Sucking water from the window will keep it clean at all times and will reduce the mould contribution. Cooking produces humidity, showering produces humidity, body produces humidity even when at sleep and of course weather is the main responsible for the amount of humidity. Even in a hot summer day we can have high amount of humidity in the air. Central heating on is on the dangerous side especially for these people that do insist to use a dehumidifier for too many hours or even 24h a day.
Definetely use a karcher as I do love it for various purposes and if you go to Homebase, you can buy a vileda for £10, rrp used to be more than the karcher at the time.
50% to max 60% is the humidity we need at home making 55% perfect. Might sound funny but with that amount of water in the air it does not mean that we are going to be submerged in water, lol .
Also be on the understanding that it might be the case that you need an humidifier instead especially when the CH is on. Industrialization is made the humidity to appear as the devil instead and all they want to do is to sell you something that you should possibly not use at all, depends on the situations of course.
Finally I hope I helped hoping that my English is understandable and use the common sense as humidity in the correct amount it is also life for humans

Easy way is to crack open your window a bit as well.
I've bought a hygrometer - thanks for the advice!

correct, I do not get a simple drip of water at all with my double glazing and in my very old wet damp, badly mantained Victorian house. Only when I shower or drain the boiling spaghetti by the kitchen window, lol
Edited by: "neroneuk" 8th Jan
most pointless invention ever. At least doubles the time to clean my windows. Used mine a few times and now its gathering dust in the garage. Couple of quid for a cheap squeegee from tesco, an old towel at the botton of the window frame to absorb the water, boom. Windows done in a quarter of the time than using this.

Not a single window cleaner in the world anywhere uses one of these.

I have an issue with condensation on my kids windows, as we shut their doors to keep their rooms quiet at night and have a bathroom close by with no window (although there's a fairly powerful extractor fan). I have both a dehumidifier and a window vac. And tbh the window vac has become my preferred action to the condensation because even though the dehumidifier is a mega energy efficient one, it still needs to be on for the majority of every day which adds significantly to my electricity bill, it's big and ugly, and it's pretty noisy. My youngest son also really struggles if the air is too dry, so 2 mins vac'ing the windows every morning it needs it through the winter is better than a nasty rise in electricity bills.

I think it is another case were you should not use a dehumidifier at all unless for some reasons you know for sure that you need a dehumidifier, get an hygrometer and see. Single glazing in winter will produce high amount of condensation even if the humidity was at 10% or less. As I already mentioned, that is caused by the difference in temperature between inside and outside especially when cold out and warmer inside. Less likely to happen ( it would not in reality) if you had double glazing and with the CH on, the air will be drier anyway. So, I do not understand why you want to damage the health of your family by depriving them from the right amount of humidity in the air. You admitted that your son gets problem when the dehumidifier is on.
Having single glazed window it is what causes condensation and nothing else, nothing to do with a problem in the house or higher humidity.

Nice piece ok kit. Useful in many areas for removing water from all flat surfaces. My wife uses it on the car after a rince with a hose to make sure our hard water doesn't leave residue after drying off. She has the wide head accessory which cuts down the work too. Brilliant for cleaning windows.

Agree but sometimes even with the best double glazing etc. A little condensation on your windows in the morning is simply the warm moist air ( from just breathing) hitting the colder glass surface, especially if your heating is switched off all night. I've got really good DG and still get a misting on the inside but only in occupied rooms. It's never enough to get my Karcher out though.

I have got a hygrometer. And double glazing (albeit very old double glazing which doesn't help with condensation) And I did say I much prefer to use the window vac. I only use the dehumidifier if we're close to 90% or more humidity. It's usually around 70/75% when the heating is on. Still not brilliant, but that's why I use the Karcher

strange, 90% and75% with CH on!! I would recommend to try another hygrometer because that does not seem to be right to me. Or must be London that is very generous with us with lower amount of humidity
