    Robot vacuum cleaners 15th Feb 14 at 4:17 AM
    Not exactly money saving, but does anyone have a robot vacuum cleaner? And if so, would you recommend them?

    Basically, my girlfriend is going back to work and we have a dog which means we have to hoover the house every day so I'm wondering whether one of these would do a job for us?

    I'm not expecting them to be as good as our Henry, I just want it to keep the place tidy and them we can give everywhere a good hoover at weekends.

    irobot have a product called the braava which is effectively a mop, I'm wondering whether this would be good as the dog hairs would cling to it.

    Would appreciate peoples thoughts/views.

    We have an IRobot Roomba, and it's fantastic! We've had it a couple of years now and as we have a German Shepherd, it is set to come on every day. It does what it says on the tin and then takes itself back and recharges. Occasionally it needs a bit of help, it may have too much dog hair caught in it's wheel, but it's not often and it's very easy to empty.

    I would also say though, I thought it was so good, I ordered the Scooba, floor washing model. That was not good! I think it suffered from the fact that you need pressure to remove stubborn marks, so no, that I could not recommend.

    Hope that helps!

    I just picked up the Roomba 980 at Amazon, It's the best vacuum cleaner by iRobot with wi-fi connectivity. I want to buy one more for my cousin. Hope it on sale on Christmas days.
