I’ve been a longtime user of Swiffers but recently moved into a home with more square footage of hardwood and tile, so I needed a bit more cleaning power. I was also interested in microfiber since it can be machine washed and not thrown away like the swifter sheets I'd been using.
I actually find cleaning to be kind of fun now! The mop is light in weight, since it's made of aluminum, but is solid and maneuvers effortlessly, allowing me to move through my house quickly.
My general procedure for cleaning has been: sweep up large dirt or other items that may be on my floors (like cat hair) then go through the house with the mop and a microfiber pad to lift dirt and hair. I use a spray bottle with water/vinegar and spray a bit onto the floors, then use a second microfiber pad to mop up and scrub. Then I throw the pads in the washing machine. They come out fresh, but I do recommend disposing of any hair stuck into the microfiber before washing.
I think I’ve owned about four Swiffers, as they tend to break and/or I run out of sheets and just buy a new one. I probably won't do that anymore because this mop is solid and I think it'll last a long time. Definitely recommended over a Swiffer.
