Now that I’m a mom of two kids who seem to live on the floor, keeping it clean is especially important around here. We take care not to track in extra dirt by taking our shoes off at the door and generally trying to keep food contained but there seems to be a never ending trail of dirt when it comes to little kids no matter how how we try. Add that to the complexity of having an older home with especially delicate floors, finding the right solution can be tricky. We need something that gets the job done quickly and effectively but won’t harm our sensitive 100+ year old parquet. Enter Swiffer WetJet.
Setup is super fast. Simply put the pad on the Swiffer WetJet and insert the cleaning solution bottle. This tool lets you clean an entire floor in a matter of minutes (perfect for naptime bursts of cleaning energy). The mist is quite fine and directed so it avoids getting any overspray on nearby rugs, furniture or baseboards. A little goes a long way – moistening but not saturating the floor (compared to how a mop would.) Keeping the moisture to a minimum is so important to prolonging the life of these floors so that’s a huge plus.
The result is streak free, clean floors without any of the hassle of carrying around a mop and bucket. The best part is the disposal. Just pull the pad off and drop in the trash. No wringing or sloshing around dirty water buckets required. And because the moisture level is so low, the floors dry very quickly.
