  • A handy dandy gadget

    When I have to drag out my vaccum cleaner (canister model) and hook up all the pipes. I am too tired to use it. I wait a few minutes and do one room at a time.

    My husband and I recently had our kitchen & bathroom remodeled and added a laundry room. When shopping around for cleaners, I can across the Swiffer Vaccum. It it great! It is so light. The only thing you have to do is keep the filter clean, and put on a clean cloth. I can run the vaccum through my kitchen, hallway, bathroom, laundry room and entry way in no time at all.

    The Swiffer vacuum can not be used on carpets. That's where my hubby comes in......he runs our canister or upright vaccum on the carpets while I run the Swiffer on our tyle floors.

    I recommend this 100%.

      I too am in love with my Swiffer... it is the only time in my life I have actually like a house cleaning anything (and coming from a girl whose family sells sewing machines and vacuum cleaners that says something!)

      It is great for anyone with health problems. If you have not tried it...it's worth the $$ 10 times over.

            I have the Wet Jet, too, but have not used it yet. Instead I do it the old fashion way...mop.

            I find it amazing how light the vaccum is and that it sucks up dirt like a heavy duty vacuum.

            Of course, for Spring/Fall cleaning I use the regular canister vaccum, but for the other 10 months, I'll take it easy and use the Swiffer.

              I'm confused, what is a vaccum cleaner? It must be a woman thing. I guess I should ask my wife. NOT!!!

                WARNING!!

                If you should ask your wife, she may convince you to try it. After seeing what the Swiffer can do, you may become addicted to it and use it every day like so many of us do.

                  Thanks for the warning. I'm already addicted to the TV remote. I don't think it would be healthy to have 2 addictions...

                    Addicted to ONLY the remote. My husband is addicted to food, his workshop, remote (I think this is a male thingy) and taking naps.

                    The problem being for some reason, I can't get my husband to try the Swiffer either. Could this be because he has too many addictions??

                      Naps are a good thing, my Dr. (who is a male) said so. What your husband needs is something to take his mind off his addictions. Like a hobby, (golf, fishing, baseball). Anything to take his mind off his addictions or daily stresses of life, (wife and kids).

                        I was just joking. Actually my husband does have a hobby. He makes various items with wood.
                        Last year he made me an Angel Lazy Susan out of cherry wood. It is so beautiful. He also makes wood ornaments. He makes them and I help paint them. He won't make anything and sell it. We give presents to family, friends, etc that he makes. People enjoy them much better than store bought.

                        BUT he does have an addiction to the remote control especially since we got a dish network and there is a channel that plays only westerns.
