I once heard a saying years back that said “cleaning your house with kids in it is like brushing your teeth while eating an Oreo”- and I think that’s the truth BUT we still NEED to clean, don’t we?? I am always looking for ways to make my house cleaning tasks a bit easier, and Swiffer has done that for me!
Have you seen those Big Green Box commercials? Yes, me too!! So you can imagine my excitement when I was a lucky recipient of one! I couldn’t wait to dig in and see my treats! Inside were Swiffer Dusters and a Swiffer Wet/Dry Mop with refills- I had never been so excited to clean! With three kids, a dog and living in the desert, dust and crumbs are ALWAYS an issue. No matter how many times I sweep, I am always finding more dust and more crumbs. Everywhere.
These Swiffer Dusters are ahhh-mazing. Not only to they smell good, but they pick up and lock onto dust like a magnet. They are simple to put on and remove and can clean a large area in one duster.
They are so easy in fact, that my four year old could use it and use it well! She was so eager to help mommy and she did a great job at that! I think that dusting is one task that young children can easily do to help with your chores- can she do it all? Well, no, but if she could do all the low things that would be half of my job done!
I dusted my entire house with two dusters (and I honestly hadn’t dusted in awhile- whoops!) and it looked fabulous after! Here was my before and after duster. I was impressed at how quickly it picked up the dust without having to spray any chemicals down to make it stick. After the dusting, we moved onto the floors!
This Swiffer dry/wet mop is really great. It does the job of two things in one and and is very simple to use. The mop has a metal, sturdy handle but it very light. I think that this would be another job that my kids would love to do since it would be easy for them to push it around and help Mom with the floors!
The dry cloths are made of the same technology as the dusters so they trap and hold onto dust. The head of the mop swivels so it’s easy to go around corners, furniture and toilets. The wet mop clothes are actually very wet! It did take me a few to do my whole house (we have a lot of tile!) but I was impressed with how clean they looked after! One of the best parts was NO STREAKING. I cannot stand when I clean my floors and wait for them to dry just to realize they are streaky! Yuck! there was ZERO streaking with these pads and they picked up all my kid’s stains and doggy paw prints. Ready for my “after” pictures? What’s funny is that I actually has swept earlier that day! Seriously! I couldn’t believe how much junk these pads picked up!
YUCK!!!! That’s what the floors of three kids and a dog looks like. Seriously gross. I was so impressed with how effective these Swiffer cleaners worked! They seriously cut my cleaning time in half! I loved them so much, in fact, I got to gift another Big Green Box on my neighbor and friend!
My friend Lynn was so thrilled to get her Big Green Box of surprises! She told me she used them right away and loved how easy they were to use and how great they made her house smell! What a great thing to gift the gift of simpler cleaning to another busy mom! It was really great. We are not the only one who loves these Swiffers- check out this hilarious video to prove it!
I hope my kids don’t do that to me someday (I’m sure they will).
These Swiffer cleaners really truly made my cleaning routine so much easier and enjoyable! I like how simple they are to use so I can enlist the help of my kids to make my job list even shorter. Who wants to spend all day cleaning?? Not me! Thanks to Swiffer, I can clean quickly and move on!
Have you used any Swiffer products yet? Do you love them as much as I do??
