Roo Must Swiff-It
We got a newfangled Swiffer WetJet (for review, courtesy of the Swiffer-sponsored SocialLuxe Lounge!) and it blows away the old one we have. Two sprayer nozzles and a scrubby strip to get dried-on gunk off without breaking stride… nice! Apparently it makes you sing and dance, too. But only if you're a poor child consigned to hard labor, like Cinderella. Or Roo.
The Swiffer WetJet is lightweight and fairly ergonomic. Yes, I am pretty sure they somehow got the idea from maxi pads (ick!) and I am not entirely thrilled about throwing away pads but the Swiffer WetJet is certainly a much more convenient method of floor cleaning than wringing out a traditional mop. I wish that Swiffer would take a cue from other companies and make a reusable microfiber pad and more naturally-derived cleansers. The cleaning solution works but it has a very strong residual odor and I would prefer something unscented or with essential oils as fragrance.
