Roomba/iRobot

Ive noticed that pretty much every rental place in Europe has hardwood/laminate or tile floors. And to be frank about it, Dust bunnies have terrorized me since boot camp. They used to make us put on our workout sweats and one person would drag the other around by their feet while they laid on their back with arms outstretch to catch them all. The we would roll under all the bunks. And as I am sure we are all aware, dust is mostly made up of peoples dead skin cells, sweat, bugs, and hair. It was disgusting.

So, the thought of having them where ever I may land is not a comforting thought, and in that same thought, neither is vacuuming every day.

So has the roomba/iRobot invasion hit the European shores/stores or is it still more of a lazy American product.

You can get one and bring it with you. However, you will have to charge it using a transformer, unless it comes with a switchable 110/220 power supply.

Frankly, dust bunnies are not that big of a problem if you get married. Um, I mean, hire someone to clean your house.

Like I said in my intro page, Im coming over single and ready to mingle... btw, how are the Germen women at cleaning? Oh boy, I have a feeling that might get me in trouble.

But not as much trouble as you if your spousal unit ever sees your post, lol

I have a GREAT cleaning lady. She is not German. Speaks English. Very reasonably priced, unlike some of the ripoff services that advertise here.

When you get here, shoot me a message and I will give you her name and contact info.

I had four different cleaning people before this one. They all did a crappy job and expected to be paid exorbitant money. The one I have now is, as they say in Germany, soopa (super)!

one of my single guy friends has a roomba. don't know if he bought it here or not, but at least you wouldn't be the only one thinking it was a good idea to use one ( :

We got a Roomba about a month ago. I thought for sure it was a gimmick, but it actually works really well.

Since we have both, a dog and a cat, we got the Roomba that is recommended for pet owners.

There are 3 products here like the Roomba. Some are for non-
carpet floors even.

We have wood floors. No carpet. The 650 that I linked to does a great job. I was very skeptical of using a robot vacuum cleaner, but it works. It is pretty cool how it 'learns' where it has been and what it has left to clean.

I bought a roomba a while back and returned it; however, i will buy one in the future. So a while back i bought a roomba b/c we had just installed HW floors in our house. After watching it perform I noticed smalls things it missed here and there and thought that it may have not been worth the money spent since I was having to go back and pick them up. After returning the Roomba I realized how much it actually cleaned. I will be purchasing a Roomba again in the future as i do believe it works well. I wouldn't consider it a full vacuum but it does a good job at keeping the floors fairly clean, you will still need to deep clean about 1 x mo. Also, you will need to clean out the dust bin on the rooms every time it makes a pass, some people do not like this but i didn't mind. Hope this helps.

You'd have to clean a bin or a bag using any type of vacuum cleaner. The Roomba is no different.
