Just out of curiosity, I borrowed a friend's Swiffer Sweeper one day. I have hardwood floors throughout most of my house and had heard that the Swiffer Sweeper will pick up dirt that is left behind even by a vacuum. I took it home, swept my floors with a regular broom, vacuumed the floor to get the dsirt out of the cracks, and then, used the Swiffer Sweeper.
I thought that after vacuuming and sweeping my floor, surely I had gotten all the dirt. I was quite surprised to see all the dirt that was left behind that was picked up by the Swiffer Sweeper. I was sold. I returned my friend's Swiffer Sweeper and went out to buy my own.
The starter kit cost me approximately $10.00 It came with the sweeper and refill microfiber cleaning clothes. It was very easy to put together; just snap a few pieces together and it was ready to use. The cleaning clothes are attatched easily by small holders on the sweeper and are disposable. Later, I found that the cleaning cloths also come in scented forms to add a little freshness while you clean.
ISince buying my Swiffer Sweeper, I have used it not only at hme, but I also take it to work with me at times. I feel that the Swiffer Sweeper lives up to its promises and is a very good value for the money.
