Why we rate it

What is included

The limited-edition buy comes with a 170mm and 280mm suction head, spray bottle and charger.

This design also comes with additional props, including a 20ml glass cleaning solution, and a microfibre cloth, to ensure you have all of the basic essentials before you start your spring clean.
