I needed something that is quick and easy to use
on March 10, 2016
So after doing some research I settled on this product, the Swiffer Wetjet Floor Mop Starter Kit. I needed something that is quick and easy to use. I live in a small apartment (600ft) with wood floors and tile and dirt constantly blows inside. I figured this Swiffer would be perfect.
I received the package in a couple days from ordering it which was great. But the packaging it arrived in was completely unnecessary. It was put in a box that is the size of the Swiffer box itself which would have been fine alone but then it was put in a box five times bigger.
For the product review though, it is okay. The product comes disassembled and you can put it together using common sense in ten seconds. It's not too heavy not too light. I'm an average 5'3" woman and found that Swiffer length was just fine. The pads are easy to deal with, they just "stick on." I realized right away the left sprayer sprays, I'd say, at least four inches, where as the right sprayer barely just dribbles. I noticed as I used it, the front part of the pad was only picking up the dirt and dust. I had to flip the pad around once the front part of it was dirty just to be able to utilize the whole pad. It seems like the area where the Velcro is placed doesn't pick up much dirt. Maybe I wasn't pushing hard enough but I thought I was giving it a decent amount of force. I used two full pads and that was a quick mop job throughout my apartment.So I wouldn't recommend using this for a huge house unless you're willing to go through a lot of those expensive pads.(I also ordered the reusable/washable pads which I haven't received yet.) I would recommend using the Swiffer Steam mop, which is what I use in some of my clients houses and it works great. I happened to have some wet mop refills and wondered if you could us them with this wet jet and you can. there is obviously no place to "tuck" them in, but the Velcro seems to hold it into place. Oh, and it does have strong smell, I prefer to use natural products but right now I need convenience and this is what the Wetjet Floor Mop provides.
Overall, the Swiffer get's what I needed done- a quick and easy light daily clean!
