Reviewing the Swiffer Sweeper Floor Mop

Dry Sweep Or Wet Mop With One Tool

Here are some reasons that I feel that every home (large or small) needs a Swiffer Sweeper Floor Mop. How often do you find that you need to sweep up a small area in your home that does not have carpet on it? It is not big enough of a job to pull the big old vacuum out. There are times when a small area of non-carpeted floor gets soiled by a spill or muddy footprints. Do you mop the entire floor or could you just do the small surface area?

There was a time when I would have dragged out the vacuum for those small jobs or I would have filled the mop bucket up and mopped the entire floor. I no longer do that for those small jobs. I use my Swiffer Sweeper Floor Mop, instead.


What I love about this handy little sweeper/mop is that it can do two jobs for me. If I just want to sweep a little dust off of the floor, then I can use one of the disposable dry cloths. It picks up hair (helpful with our cat), dust and dirt really well. They are easily placed on the sweeper edge by pressing the ends into the four little slots and removed just as easily. I just wad them up and toss in the trash basket.

When my husband, cat or the grandkids track in mud from outside or if I happen to spill something in the kitchen, all I have to do is get one of the wet cloths and attach it to the sweeper/mop. Once the area has been mopped, I just toss the soiled sheet into the trash.

Storing the Swiffer Sweeper Floor Mop is easy, also. The head folds down so that it doesn't take up much room in my little cleaning closet where I keep all of my cleaning supplies.

You only have to purchase the sweeper mop once, then as needed you can purchase refills in both the dry and wet versions.

I like to get the Dry Cloth Refills in the 48 count box because I sweep my tile floors just about every day with this little broom or dust mop tool. If I am going to run the vacuum on the carpets then I will use it on the tiled floors, too. But for those quick little once a day tasks of sweeping the floors this little sweeper works like a charm.

The wet sheets come in a smaller count of only 12. That is just fine for my needs because I don't use them as often. I do not mop my entire floor with this handy little tool, although I could if I wanted to. If it is an all floor job, then the mop bucket and mop come out of the cleaning supply closet. I use the Swiffer wet cloths and sweeper for the small little mopping jobs that come up once in a while.

If you are like me and find that just about every day there is a small little sweeping job staring you in the face, I can highly recommend using this product.

  1. I love that mop buckets are (mostly) in the past these days, thanks to Swiffer who certainly got the ball rolling in the specialty floor cleaning category. Appreciate your review!

  3. I've enjoyed my Swifter for years. You are right - it is a very handy cleaning tool for quick, small jobs.

  4. As far as I am concerned, the Swiffer sweeper and mop are the best inventions for household cleaning in my lifetime. The mop is a real back saver! No need to lift and carry a bucket of water with you when you need to mop. They are fabulous on my tile floor! The dry mop is my best friend! With the pups living in our home with us, they make sweeping and dusting our hardwood floors a breeze. An excellent review of an fantastic product Bev!

  5. I really need to get something like this. Does the wet mop remove the stickiness as well as the wetness from the floor? My husband is always dropping things like grapes or raisins on the kitchen floor and they somehow get stepped on before they are seen. I may have one of these in the closet already that my mom had, but I think it's just a dry Swifter. I'd better take a second look. The lady that occasionally does the floors uses something, but it may have actual water in it. I'll have to check an see if that's what she uses. Maybe if I got this I could do my own floors more easily.

    1. If you have one of these from your Mom, Barbara and it takes the dry clothes...you can use the wet ones too. To answer your question on the stickiness, I have had good luck with it removing it. The nice thing about the wet sheets is that there is a rough strip on the top that takes care of the harder to removed soiling....like sticky grape juice or raisin remnants. The lady who does your floors for you may use the model that is called "Wet Jet" and it has a container attached that you fill with water to squirt out when you need it. I don't know if those have the disposable sheets with them or not. I've seen them but haven't used them so I'm not sure.

  7. Those Swifters are a great tool to have around the house. It has allowed my wife and I to clean up after our puppy many a time. Great post and a lot of good information for anyone looking to getting one. I highly recommend it. Works great and is really easy to clean when dirty. Thank you for the post.
