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.

Woolite Dry Cleaners Review - Dry Cleaning Clothes at Home

woolite dry clean at home For many years, I have been allergic to the dry cleaning chemicals that dry cleaners use to clean our clothes. Finding an easy alternative and being able to Dry Clean my own clothes at home, is truly fabulous and it is so very easy!

I have such a strong reaction to dry cleaners chemicals, that I simply stopped buying clothes that had to be dry cleaned. It just was not worth it no matter how beautiful the apparel was, or how much I really wanted something. Even the smell of dry cleaned clothes that someone else may be wearing, can cause me to get an extreme headache.

I am thrilled that I have discovered a way to dry clean my clothes at home and not get sick!  I have had so much success with this method, that I look for clothes to dry clean just so I can dance by my dryer.

Woolite Dry Cleaners Sheets

It may be seriously hard to believe, but dry cleaning your own clothes at home is as simple as throwing a piece of cloth in your dryer with your garment and turning on the dryer.

Additional Notes about Dry Cleaning this Particular Cape

I personally made this Dr. Orpheus Cosplay Costume Cape for my son for Halloween in 2013.   There is a large emblem on the back of the cape that I had to cut from satin fabric pieces.

The real beauty of the Woolite Sheets is that they did not fade or fray even the emblem.  It came out of the dryer clean and just as vibrantly beautiful as it was the day it was made.

Since I enjoy making specialty costumes, it is so very awesome to have a trustworthy method to dry clean them.  They are truly a lot more reliable than any dry cleaner and they don't leave strong chemical odor on the costumes or clothes.  They actually smell good!

Woolite Dry Cleaning Sheet Tests and Review Conclusion

Since Woolite is a name I have trusted all of my life, I did not hesitate to try their dry cleaning sheets.  After all, Woolite is the product I have used for decades to wash my cold water delicate fabrics.  I am thrilled beyond belief to now be able to wear clothes that have to be dry cleaned.   I love satins, silks, velvets, etc. and I missed having them as part of my wardrobe. 

Due to my personal allergies, I do use the Fragrance Free, but there are scented sheets available.

Have you tried either of the Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret Products?
