Easy Cleaning with Swiffer

Easy Cleaning with Swiffer #SwifferEffect #BigGreenBox

Cleaning is not one of my favorite things to do but I like to have a clean house.  After we got our dog in March of 2013, I found it especially difficult to keep my house clean.  Sherman sheds a lot and his hair can be found everywhere.  Working full-time, writing a blog, taking care of our lawn and garden, exercising, and walking our dog left little time for house cleaning.  I couldn’t stand living in a filthy house and finally relented and got help twice a month.  What a relief it is to have a clean house and to not have to spend my precious weekends cleaning.  Even with outside help, I still need to clean weekly, mostly because of our dog.

I’ve used Swiffer products for years to make cleaning fast and easy.  I already knew that using a Swiffer duster is much faster than using a traditional dust cloth.  I’ve always liked that it locks the dust in the duster instead of transferring it from one part of a piece of furniture to another.  I had not tried a Swiffer Sweeper until I received one in my #BigGreenBox.  Let’s just say that I am now hooked.  Sherman can shed all he wants and I can quickly clean it up in just a few minutes.  The sweeper also can be used as a wet mop, great for the kitchen and bathroom floors.

After I got my #BigGreenBox, I was excited to clean even though the ladies were here just four days ago.  I suspected that my help doesn’t dust the top of the armoire and I don’t blame them.  I had to stand on a stool to do so.  Yikes!  When did I last dust this spot?

A ceiling fan is quick to dust with a Swiffer Duster.  The ladies usually don’t clean the fan unless I specifically ask them to do so.

Mini blinds are a pain to dust with a cloth.  I’ve always used a Swiffer Duster on these.  The ladies must clean this spot regularly because there was very little dust on the Swiffer after I did both windows.

The ladies came on Monday and I wondered on Friday how much dust could be found in our bedroom.  I used the Swiffer on the doors, baseboards, and chair rail.  See below for what I collected after four days.  The great thing is I dusted these areas in just minutes.  Easy!

I used a different Swiffer Duster on each area of the bedroom to see how much dirt I could collect.  Blah!  The Swiffer sure does a good job!

I used the Swiffer Sweeper under the couches and in the main areas where our dog likes to wonder:  family room, kitchen, and dining room.  It’s so easy to use and I was finished in just a few minutes.

Sherman did a lot of shedding in four days!

A Swiffer Sweeper cleans my floors so quickly.  Now that I have this great tool, I can quickly sweep a few times a week after work to keep up with Sherman’s shedding.  I can use the wet mop to quickly clean both the bathroom and kitchen floors.  Quick and easy is what I need!


Swiffer kindly sent a second #BigGreenBox for me to pass on to a friend who could use their products.  Suzanne, my friend and running partner, has two cats who live indoors that shed constantly.  Suzanne has hardwood floors and I knew that she would appreciate being able to clean up after Hector and Edna quickly and easily.

Swiffer makes me happy!  I can clean up quickly and have time to do things that I enjoy, like petting Sherman which makes him shed even more.  I’d better keep my Swiffer Sweeper handy!
