Engineered for hygienic cleaning and hassle-free maintenance, the Dyson G1 will divide you wet and dry debris at the source, making sure it’s washing with clean eater from start to finish, with a one-litre capacity clean water tank, suitable for flooring up to 290 square metres.

Dyson say the revolutionary gadget uses a combination of hydration, absorption and extraction technologies to remove and separate your wet and dry debris, ensuring your home is always cleaner and easier to maintain.

“Most of us vacuum our homes regularly. But whilst wet cleaning isconsidered a necessary chore globally, many of us don’t know why we do it beyond the vague notion of hygiene,” the Dyson Home Vice President of New Product Development Charlie Park said.

“In fact, cleaning with water is essential to rehydrate and remove tough, dried-on stains.

“Over the years, a vast array of wet floor cleaning formats have emerged to help us tackle this chore yet users’ expectations areoften left unfulfilled when it comes to stain removal, pick-upperformance and floor finish.”

Charlie added: “Dyson engineers solve the problems others ignore and we thrive on the challenge of creating better technology.

“The Dyson WashG1 is the result of this; our first dedicated wet machine to wash hard floors, properly and hygienically.”

“I have been using the Wash G1 now for a few months now,” one reviewer started.

“While the initial cost may seem steep vs. other traditional methods (mop and bucket, wipes) the Wash G1 proves its value over time.

“The water efficiency is a massive standout feature for me, I am increasingly conscious of water usage in our busy house for only 280ml to clean the entire house vs. previously using litres of water that also needed to be boiled up saves on all fronts.

“One of the most significant advantages is the hygiene level it maintains. The Wash G1 not only cleans but also extracts dirt effectively.

“The finish dries faster and no streaks. The most satisfying aspect of usage is watching the water go from clear to brown. Also the litmus test for me is that the base of my kids white school socks are still white after playing in the house. Worth every penny.”

While another added: “The product glides and clean pretty well once it starts.

“It emits just enough water to make wet cleaning effective, without too much water trail behind. The product manouevres very well around corners and under tables. The ease to maintain and wash was unexpected. Few parts to wash and easy to remove and place them back. The downside is the weight of the machine when it is full. Otherwise, all is good!”
