Of all the activities we could do in our downtime at home, cleaning is not one that tops our list of favourites. But it has to be done.

So we are constantly on the lookout for things that will make our chores easier, meaning we can get our home looking in tip-top shape and still have time to watch Selling Sunset.

And we think we’ve found just the thing when it comes to cleaning carpets...

Powerful and ergonomic, the Vax Platinum Power Max Carpet Cleaner is able to remove up to 93% of bacteria, along with other fungi and allergens, leaving your carpets fresh and dry within an hour.

One. Single. Hour.

And, with almost 5,000 five-star reviews on John Lewis, it definitely seems to be a worthy investment.

In case you’re not already completely sold, we’ve laid out all the need-to-know information below.

Why we love it:

We adore anything that makes cleaning easier, and this gadget does just that.

It claims to be able to clean any stubborn spot stains and spills on just about any fabric item in your home, from carpeted floors and stairs, to upholstery.

It also promises to lift away dirt deep-down in carpet fibres - great for the winter months when muddy footprints will be making an appearance.

As well as washing your carpets, the Platinum Power Max also rinses them, to remove any shampoo residue.

How it works:

With a large tank capacity, this carpet washer is also equipped with seven SpinScrub and rotating brushbars, so is able to clean deep within the carpet fibres, removing embedded dirt that vacuuming alone can't reach.

What the reviews say:

The handy cleaning device has received thousands of five-star reviews on the John Lewis’ website. Here’s what customers have to say:

  • “A purchased this two weeks ago got it on Saturday best money we have spent this year 2021. And it is so simple to operate but very powerful.”

  • “I was going to get someone in to clean my carpets, but with lockdown I couldn't, so I thought I'd give the VAX a go. I love it and wish I'd bought it ages ago.”

  • “This is the best carpet cleaner I have ever used - and I should know as I own a pub - quick and really easy to refill and empty - best to use rinse mode to remove the top layer of dirt first then wash mode after few days - well done Vax.”

  • “I thought my carpets were fairly clean until we used this. The amount of dirt it got out was incredible. The carpets look like new.”

  • “ I've cleaned my lounge and stair carpet. The difference is amazing. I can't believe how much dirt it brought out. It was really easy to use and clean. I've had a really basic Vax for years but only really used it to clean up spills. I'll be using this frequent it's fantastic.”

  • “Was reluctant to buy this...but I have to say every home should have one love it.”
