The Vax Platinum SmartWash claims to use ‘next generation’ technology to get your carpets pristine, including an automatic ‘motion sensor’ floor head that dispenses the right amount of detergent and water as you go, and a quick one-hour Dry Only mode to avoid damp feet. Can this Vax cleaner breathe new life into your carpets? We put it through its paces to bring you our first impressions.
