I hate mopping and sweeping. Having to run water and wash mop heads is the biggest pain in the butt ever. I bought a Swiffer sweeper when I moved into my own apartment. I don't have much hard flooring, except for laminate in the kitchen and bathroom. Still, it was enough to have to be cleaned by something other than the vacuum, and not enough to go through buying and using a heavy mop. The swiffer was perfect for what I needed. The dry cloths for the swiffer collected dust and dirt and gave me a cleaner surface to go through with the wet cloths afterward. The dry cloths have a very subtle, lavender and vanilla scent, and are not very strong. They collect much more dirt than I expected them to, more than I could actually see. The wet cloths smell a little bit more strongly, which is fine, because they do smell fresh and clean. I am thoroughly impressed with the cleaning ability of the swiffer, even though it doesn't seem like a very sturdy tool. It was affordable and replaces my broom and mop, and saves space for other stuff in my cleaning closet, which is great! This is a fantastic tool, and the lavender scented cloths are phenomenal.
