A vacuum cleaner that can be used as a hand washing or dusting tool?
If you buy one, you may be surprised by how many people claim it is a glass cleaner.
The term glass cleaner comes from the term “sulphuric acid”, a chemical that is often found in the outer shell of a glass bottle.
It is said to be a clean, clean cleaner that is non-toxic and does not leave a greasy residue.
However, many people are concerned about the safety of the chemical and say it can irritate the skin, eyes and lungs.
The Australian Consumer Law Centre has been collecting reports of this and has asked the government to look into whether the glass cleaner is actually a safe cleaner for a household.
“This has been going on for a long time,” Dr Mary Ellen Haines said.
“People are being told to think twice before they buy a glass vacuum cleaner, and there’s been a lot of misinformation.”
The group has also been compiling statistics from the last three years.
It found more than two million people had bought a glass cleaning product in the three months to September this year, compared to about two million for the same period last year.
“It’s been the biggest spike in the past few years,” Ms Hainess said.
What is a ‘vacuum cleaner’?
A vacuum cleaning product is a device that uses compressed air to vacuum up and remove the dust or dust particles.
The vacuum cleaners most commonly use compressed air.
They can be fitted with either a vacuum attachment or a plastic nozzle to produce a vacuum that can use a wide range of compressed air temperatures.
There are a variety of different kinds of vacuum cleaners, but the key is that they have to be used in the same location and in the correct temperature range.
“The glass cleaner that you get is the vacuum cleaner you get with your vacuum,” Ms O’Sullivan said.
She said the average household vacuum cleaner sold in Australia used about 40% less compressed air than the average home vacuum.
This is because people have been using the vacuum cleaners for years, rather than trying to find a cleaner that was different to their previous cleaner.
“We know that people will buy a vacuum cleaner when they have bought the previous cleaner, so that is why we are getting so many reports of people buying the new cleaner,” she said.
Some of the concerns people have with the glass cleaners are that they can be a hazard to their skin.
“They can irritates your skin, they can irritating your eyes and they can actually make your eyes burn,” Ms Jolliffe said.
However the Consumer Health and Safety Authority says this is a concern.
“Glass cleaning products are not intended to be harmful,” a spokesperson said.
In addition, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is not against using glass cleaners in certain situations.
However it does not recommend them for all situations.
“There is evidence to suggest that the use of vacuum cleaning products can have a potentially harmful effect on the skin and mucous membranes, especially in young children,” a CPSC spokesperson said in a statement.
“As a precaution, children and adults should be carefully monitored and advised of the potential risks posed by the use and storage of glass cleaning products.”
