Scoopybuck / fireplace cleaner


Fireplaces and especially fire are beautiful - to get warm and to have a comfortable atmosphere. But what’s about the ash? To clean it up is a mess – until using the ‘scoopybuck: It makes a clean cleaning possible.
The ‘scoopybuck is inspired by the traditional dirt bucket and scoop and is combined with a hoover. There are several slots to absorb the ugly dust immediately: in the edge of the outer body and at the upper end of the scoop. To cast away the dirt, the inside bucket can be taken out of the package.
Not in use - the cleaner is waiting in its charging station for his next job – in the meantime you’re enjoying the next fire.
