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!
