Like stuff, want to buy some stuff? Here are our suggestions for what to get and where to get them.

Use technology to take the hassle out of deep cleaning.

Squeaky-clean floors

The Hobot Legee D8 Robot Vacuum Cleaner and Mop combines vacuuming, sweeping, water spraying and mopping. It offers hands-free cleaning, customisable cleaning modes and a unique voice control function that allows you to command it without lifting a finger. It’s designed to get into hard-to-reach corners and right up to the edges, and it sucks up dust and pet hair even from carpets. It’s also energy-efficient and quiet and carries the SA Allergy Foundation’s seal of approval. The Hobot Legee Lulu Charging and Cleaning Station, the D8’s trusty sidekick, automatically refreshes the robot’s mop, tops up the water tank and recharges the battery.

Improved air quality

The Solenco Air Purifier Purification Pal helps to create healthy air in the home with innovative air-purifying technology that kills bacteria and viruses and traps up to 99.97% of particles, allergens, pollen, dust, smoke, mould spores and pet dander. It also reduces volatile organic compounds (which can be 10 times more concentrated indoors compared with outdoors), toxic fumes and odours. With its night light and low noise output, it’s perfect for nurseries and children’s rooms.

A painting revolution is here! 

Plascon’s latest release, MasterPrep, is a grey water-based primer that not only ensures a bold and beautiful topcoat colour, but also saves time and money.

Priming is key to a successful paint job – the difference between an unprimed or poorly primed surface and one that is properly primed is the difference between a problematic and an excellent finish.

The water-based, low in volatile organic compounds, grey plaster MasterPrep primer – available in 5 and 20 litres – evens porosity, providing excellent adhesion for the topcoat. It’s breathable, allowing moisture to escape, and it’s extremely quick drying, ready for an overcoat in an hour. These qualities enhance the colour and shine of the topcoat and reduce overall time and labour costs.

MasterPrep is suitable for priming new interior and exterior concrete, cement plaster, fibre cement, brickwork and various types of building boards and compressed wood.

Knowledgeable staff are available to assist shoppers with expert advice and a personalised shopping experience, and the huge range of products on shelf means that homeowners, DIY enthusiasts, renovators, crafters and contractors will find everything in-store they need for their current project.

“All customers can expect the same quality of service that they have come to experience from all our hardware stores and will benefit from the larger layout, wider aisles, increased product offerings and access to expert staff assistance,” says Orlando Luis, CEO of Brights.

“In addition to this exciting new store, Brights is also focused on increasing our online offering substantially, and we plan to open a new store in the near future in the Southern Suburbs as well as Somerset West.”
