With the likes of Captain America: Civil War and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice taking over the box office, it seems that superheroes are everywhere at the moment. Something you may not know though is that I’m actually a superhero myself – or at least according to home cleaning experts, Vileda.
To receive their abilities, Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider, Bruce Banner was exposed to gamma radiation and Matt Murdock was blinded by a radioactive substance. When it comes to origin stories, I’ll admit that mine isn’t the most ‘out there’. In fact, my super powers came about when I was sent the Vileda Windomatic Window Vacuum Cleaner to review at the end of last year.
Unbeknownst to me, I was inheriting a product which would make me part of a Grime Fighting Superhero Team as I was entrusted with one of Vileda’s four secret weapons – in a way, not too dissimilar to Green Lantern and his Power Ring. With the Windomatic in my hand, I was transformed from an average stay-at-home dad into The Shape-Shifter, with the ability to be flexible, lightweight and streak-free.
Bet you never thought I’d look so good in Spandex
As I discovered at the time – and have continued to make use of since – this electronic cleaning gadget allowed me to undertake household chores quicker, easier and with better results than previously. If that’s not a super power, then I don’t know what is! To quote myself from my review:
“It can be used to suck up condensation, vacuum up water or clean a variety of things, such as windows, mirrors, tables, the floor and tiles, all with positive results. I particularly like using it in the bathroom after a shower to reduce moisture in the air (bathroom mirror, tiles and windows), in addition to sucking up water in the shower.”
Although their identities are obviously hidden, the other members of the Grime Fighting Superhero Team include The Speed Demon, The Teleporter and The Invisible. Each one brings unique powers from Vileda’s new electrical range – the Windomatic, the Steam Mop, the 100˚C Hot Spray Mop and the Cleaning Robot – to help you destroy dirt and banish bacteria from your home. With one of these products, you can become a superhero like me…pretty cool, eh?
What’s more, as part of this Vileda campaign, if you make a purchase of one of the four superhero products you’ll be entered into a competition to win the rest of the superhero team. You can check out the full campaign and competition details on the Vileda website.
With that, I’m going to sneak off into the night to undertake some secret ‘superhero business’. Just remember, with great power, comes great responsibility.
