**I received Swiffer Sweeper Dry + Wet Sweeping Kit for free, but all opinions are my own**
I’ve always been a mop and bucket floor cleaner but for a while now I have been curious about Swiffers. When I was given the chance to review the Swiffer Sweeper Dry + Wet Sweeping Kit, I was happy to finally get the chance to try one out.
The Swiffer Sweeper Dry + Wet Sweeping Kit includes one sweeper, seven dry sweeping cloths and three wet mopping cloths. This Swiffer sweeper is advertised as being designed to sweep and mop your floors. The thick dry sweeping cloths conform to surfaces and grout lines, with 3x cleaning action on dirt, dust & hair while the wet mopping cloths dissolve dirt and grime.
When you open up the sweeping kit you will find that the actual sweeper comes in five pieces that are easily assembled. Also in the package there is one plastic package that contains all seven of the dry sweeping cloths and three individual packages with the wet mopping cloths.
The dry sweeping cloths are easily attached using the cloth grippers that are on top of the sweeper.
I wanted to try the Swiffer Sweeper Dry + Wet in several different rooms and floor surfaces throughout my house to see where it would be the most effective. The first area that I used the dry cloths on was the hardwood floors in the kitchen, hallway and half-bath. The dry cloth did a great job picking up hair and dust that was on the ground.
In the kitchen, however, where there are bigger particles on the ground (i.e. crumbs), I still had a small pile of debris to sweep up after I used the dry cloth.
Since I have a toddler who is constantly throwing food on the ground, I don’t think I would use the Swiffer dry cloths in my kitchen. I will just stick with a normal broom for that room.
The next area that I used a dry cloth in was the vinyl floor in the master bathroom, guest bathroom and laundry room. I have very long hair and there is always hair on the floor in the bathroom but the Swiffer did an excellent job at picking up of the hair. I could literally see the hair being pulled toward the Swiffer while I was sweeping.
The dry cloth on the Swiffer is a great option for bathrooms and other rooms that may have a lot of hair on the floor. If I had a pet that shed, the Swiffer dry cloth would be a must.
I didn’t use the wet cloths on my hardwood floors but I did try it out on all of the vinyl flooring. The wet mopping cloths are applied to the sweeper in the same way that the dry cloths are and have an extra green scrubbing strip at the top that can be used for tougher floor messes.
When I first got the wet cloth out, it was extremely wet and got liquid everywhere. The scent, however, was great, especially for a kitchen or bathroom.
I tried using one wipe for three rooms (two bathrooms and a laundry room). The wipe was not very wet by the time I got to the third room but I still believe it was cleaning the surface effectively. Below is a picture of what the wet cloth looked like after cleaning the three rooms. It isn’t too dirty but I wouldn’t expect it to be given that these rooms never have anyone walk on them with shoes which is how, I believe, a lot of dirtiness gets on floors.
Overall, I found that the Swiffer Sweeper Dry + Wet is a great option for use in bathrooms and rooms where there are pets that shed. I would not recommend it for kitchens, however, where there is often bigger debris and crumbs found on the ground.
