  • Shoppers are raving about a $2 window cleaning squeegee from Kmart
  • Many said it does a better job at picking up dirt from carpets than vacuums

Shoppers are raving about a $2 window cleaning squeegee from Kmart, claiming it does a better job at cleaning their carpets than high-end vacuum cleaners.

The new Kmart window squeegee costs just $2, and is available in the ‘mops and brooms’ section the bargain store, but you cannot buy it online.

One woman posted on Facebook, where she shared a photo of all of the hair and debris she managed to pick up with just a couple of minutes use of the squeegee.

‘I use the rubber broom on my carpets to get rid of dog hair but needed something small and sturdy for the stairs to get in the corners,’ she wrote. 

‘I vacuumed with my Dyson, then ran this small squeegee over the stairs… just two stairs only… and omg, this Kmart squeegee could achieve more than my $800 vacuum!’

She added that she didn’t use any water to remove the hair with the squeegee, and while she does generally find her Dyson effective, she just ‘can’t find an attachment with enough suction to go right into the corners’.

'I thought I'd give it a go on my carpets AFTER vacuuming!,' one woman posted, before adding: 'Shocked to see how much dog hair I could get up with this little beauty,' one person commented

Others online were similarly impressed with the budget item’s performance. 

‘I am definitely going to invest in one for my lounge!’ one woman wrote.

‘Brilliant idea, I’ll take mine out of the shower!’ another added.

This isn’t the first time Kmart has had a huge hit in the cleaning department.

Last year, the discount super store released an $8 rubber broom which had mums across Australia singing its praises, thanks to its ability to remove dirt and debris from carpets.

‘I thought I’d give it a go on my carpets AFTER vacuuming!,’ one woman posted, before adding: ‘Shocked to see how much dog hair I could get up with this little beauty.

‘I feel rubbish thinking my carpets were clean with the vacuum.’

When its bristles are worked into carpets, deeply embedded matter, such as hair, comes to the surface.

One woman took to Facebook to declare the broom (pictured) had been a godsend in her home, and she said it had worked wonders at removing rabbit hair from her carpet

‘We have a black rabbit who is absolutely gorgeous but loses a lot of hair. Bonus the rug feels better after a good sweep too.’
