Window cleaner Kobold VG100

Window cleaner Kobold VG100

One wipe - ready, window cleaning can be effective and yet so convenient. While moving Kobold VG100 from the top to the bottom, dirt is loosened by a wetted microfiber cloth and then sucked in. The glass surface is immediately dry and streakless clean. Kobold VG100 is suitable for all even glass surfaces like windows, mirrors and tables. 5 ml of concentrate is enough for roughly 20 square meters. And the design makes it a gem in every home…

You will taste the difference. The Bauhaus design is amazing. All ritter kitchen appliances got the German “The Blue Angel” award for energy saving and for protecting our environment. And all of them are truly made in Germany.

News & Innovations

New model: Hard Floor Cleaner Kobold SP600  In autumn we will launch Vorwerk's new hard floor cleaner Kobold SP600. At the Interior Lifestyle Fair, we will show the first Japanese prototype. Kobold SP600 at the same time vacuums and wipes the floor effectively. Even very sticky dirt can be eliminated easily. Suitable also for tatami floors. Design and handling are now substantially improved which makes wiping very convenient. The amount of liquid used can be controlled effectively and the enhanced microfiber cloth allows to clean up to 60 square meters in one go. The consumption of detergent (biodegradable) and water is reduced to a minimum.
