If you’re like me, you LOVE the commercials where people are surprised with the #BigGreenBox at the doorstep and it’s filled with Swiffer products that make their lives easier. The elderly couple always cracks me up! It’s my favorite. Swiffer offers consumers easy-to-use sweeping, mopping and dusting tools for virtually every household surface. So, needless to say, I was totally excited to experience the #SwifferEffect myself AND get to share it with someone else.
Check out this quick (and funny) video presented by Swiffer and featuring Eric Stonestreet. See how Eric keeps it clean when his mom comes to visit!
My big green box showed up and I immediately ripped that sucker open to a sea of green and the clean fresh scent of the Swiffer Sweeper wet cloths. It was delightful! With 2 dogs and 3 cats plus a tween, a teen and a husband…plus my kids’ friends…in and out of the house…my floors never get a break. I didn’t even hesitate to snap my Swiffer Sweeper together. It’s a simple tool that can be used to sweep and mop virtually all hard surfaces using both dry and wet cloths. It wen’t together, literally, with a snap (or 3). I put on a dry cloth and went to sweeping. I was pretty amazed at the amount of hair and dirt it picked up. I didn’t even try to give it a fair shake by vacuuming first! Then I put on a wet cloth and was pleasantly surprised again. It picked up a LOT of dirt and left my floor shining.
Next up was the Swiffer Duster. This thing uses thousands of fluffy fibers that change shape to fit anywhere to trap and lock dust without spreading it around the home. I have quite a few knick knacks around and the kids have their video game consoles and games that I try to keep as dust free as possible. My daughter LOVES to dust and the Swiffer Duster is her most favorite tool. No sprays, no cloths and no pushing dust around from place to place. She can dust, and make things clean without a ton of effort. Plus the Swiffer Duster can fit in some pretty tight places! She went to work immediately and dusted off the shelves and tables in the living room. Needless to say, she was pretty proud as she discovered just how much dust those fluffy fibers trapped and then she could just throw it away. Swiffer makes it easy for anyone in the household to pitch in to make cleaning a little bit happier and life just a little bit better.
In a matter of a few minutes, the living room was transformed. Even my leather couch and loveseat were dust and pet hair free! It was amazing. Funny how quick everybody is to help me clean when we get cool products to try! I’ll take all the help I can get!! Oh and let me not forget to mention how fresh everything smells thanks to the added scents of Gain and Febreeze!!
Now, for the best part. I was sent a 2nd #BigGreenBox so that I could share the #SwifferEffect with someone. It was not an easy choice, at first. I contacted a couple of friends but they declined. They weren’t keen about having their pictures on the internet. I was set to surprise another friend, who recently bought a home. Then, she had to leave town on short notice. So, I went with the easy choice…my momma! She’s 73 and though she’s in great health, I knew she’d appreciate getting a few products to make cleaning easier.
We were planning to visit anyway. So, I told her I was bringing her something that we got for review. She’s always tickled with freebies. We arrived with the box in hand and plopped it down on the coffee table. When she opened it, she grinned ear to ear. I knew she would love it. She used to be a housekeeper and these kinds of things never displease her. Plus, anything that makes her life easier is always welcomed. She swept her floor with a dry cloth and said she would mop later this weekend. She didn’t want to waste our time there with cleaning. It was enough for me just to see her smile and to know that some of her household chores won’t be quite as taxing thanks to Swiffer!
