I can’t imagine life without our menagerie of fluffy companions. In the absence of tiny tots running around the house, our cats and dogs bring so much joy into my life! But the downside to all of those fluffy snuggles is that they leave behind a big old mess. Whether it’s Foxy getting into the garbage…
Or Tarzan and Gizmo just shedding all over the house…
Or Bailey and Toby having a fur-pulling wrestling match, there is never a shortage of junk to clean up in the Quillen household!
As you can imagine, I use a lot of Swiffer products around the house. I would be lost without their Swiffer Dusters, dry cloths and wet cloths – I use them in every room in the house to keep the pet hair and dander at bay! When the new Swiffer Sweep & Trap was announced, I knew I had to have it, so I was excited to be asked to do a review here on the blog!
What is the Swiffer Sweep and Trap?
The Swiffer Sweep and Trap is like the regular Swiffer Sweeper combined with a manual vacuum, specially designed to be used on hard floors. we have wood laminate throughout the house, with the exception of the family room and bathroom, which are tiled. So this is pretty perfect for us. If you have carpet, this won’t be any different for you than the regular Swiffer products – it won’t really work on carpet.
The Swiffer Sweep and Trap uses rotating blades similar to a vacuum cleaner to pick up large particles, which it then flicks into a dirt bin. But at the same time, the attached Swiffer Sweeper dry cloth traps dirt, dust and hair that your regular brooms usually leave behind. It’s pretty genius, it’s like a Swiffer Sweeper and vacuum all in one!
The Swiffer Sweep & Trap uses the same dry cloths as the Swiffer Sweeper, so you don’t have to start using anything new. It’s lightweight, compact and has an ergonomic handle that is really easy to use.
The rotating blades and dirt bin are easily removed for cleaning and just as easy to reattach. No batteries or power is required so it’s just as quick to use as a broom, but it’ll give you a much better clean because the dry cloths pick up all those tiny particles of dust that brooms always leave behind.
You can see in this picture the hairballs and pieces of leaves that it caught while I was Swiffering the office. Don’t ask how they got in there…with the dogs constantly in and out all day, I’m sometimes surprised by what I find on our floors! At least there aren’t any feathers this time…don’t ask! ha!
The new Swiffer Sweep and Trap did a great job of cleaning up the floors. After being in Vegas for a week, they were in dire need of cleaning, believe me!
