Battery Powered Mop!

I finally broke down and bought a Swiffer. I am usually very skeptical of the New Fangled Devices they come up with, I mean... Really! A mop that requires 4 double A batteries seems like an excuse to make money off the gullible, right?

Well, I have to admit the darn thing cleans the floor! It has this really neat sponge thing that you velcro on and then throw out once you've mopped the floor. It actually sucks the dirt in away from the cleaning surface (I know, I didn't believe it either, but I checked..) so you are always mopping with a clean surface. The Swiffer has special Swiffer Cleaner that you use that smells pleasant, and makes things clean. My kitchen floor is cleaner than it has been in a very long time. Overall, positive rating from this Retro Housewife for the Silly Swiffer.

The only pain is that now I have two more things to run out of...The cleaning pads and the special solution. Oh Well.

So that's my 2 cents on that!

You know, I have seen the ads for them. I am thinking about getting one for myself, thanks for sharing!

4 AAA power swiffer --- i've never seen that one. Is it used for carpet or ceramic/wood/tile floors?

It is a mop! A Turbo mop at that!

Hmmm, what would your mother say? My mother still gets on her hands and knees and scrubs the floor. I, on the other hand, own and use a swiffer mop and a regular mop. Getting on my hands and knees is only done once or twice a year as it takes the rest of the year to get back up! :)
