Super Swiffer!

This holiday cleaning tips post is brought to you by Swiffer® as part of a Type-A Parent Community Sponsored Post.

There is always something going on at my house. We have a house full of people and two dogs that think they own the house and are nice enough to let us humans live here. Add to that mix-several grandchildren who visit at least once or twice a week and you get one very dirty hardwood floor.  So when Swiffer asked me to test their new Swiffer Steamboost mop I was anxious to see what it could do.

It looked like the picture above when I took it out of the box. My husband helped me snap it together (Less than 5 minutes) and quick as a flash we were ready to test it out.

The hubs got the mop ready to go and the oldest granddaughter watched from the kitchen as I encouraged him to take the mop for a “test drive.” I figured if I made it sound like he was getting ready to go for a spin in a sports car he might feel more inclined to do some mopping.

My plan worked!

After just a few minutes of mopping look what came off my floor!

I really believe this mop works better due to the water/heat/steam combination. I plan on using it (or tricking my husband into using it) all over the house! Of course I will probably have to use several pads to get the floor clean but they are easy to replace and the mop is so easy to use that it’s not a big deal. In fact, it’s fun! Just ask my husband!

  1. Steam Mops are AWESOME! I had no clue Swiffer had came out with one. I just got a new shark for Christmas, but will keep in mind the Swiffer one for when this one breaks down. Some how I seem to run through steam mops, wonder if I over use them lol. Honestly though I don’t think I will ever go back to chemicals on my floors or the old mop and bucket again.

    I did notice it uses disposable pads, do you happen to know if you can get reusable pads to use with it?

    Yes, it does have pads and I should have mentioned that in my post! Keep on mopping, girl. You sound like you have a lot going on in your house too! Best to you,
