To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It is ok to mopping floor, it is cheap and it looks cheap too. The mopping head is smaller than what I thought, the handle is thin and light. In short won’t buy this mopping kit again. You can add a bit more money to get a better product I believe.
I bought this product to replace another that I purchased a few years ago. The handle stick broke but it was thick plastic and I use this several times a week, so I didn’t t expect it to last forever. But when I opened this new one, I saw where the handle stick was even thinner and quite flimsy (bows when you use it) than the original. Poor design, unless they plan for it to fail quickly. I will not buy another which is sad because I really like the ease of using this product. I’d fire the engineers who designed this handle stick - it’s embarrassing....
I always admire good design and this everyday cleaning tool really has it. It seems that every aspect has been carefully thought out and tested. With the dark wood floors I have and the current trend away from too much carpeting it has become an essential item. These floors look great but show every speck of dust, bit of paper and anything else that lands on them. The actual cleaning wipes load without any effort and without little clips or fasteners that could break off or scratch the floor. The wipes come in several dry or wet varieties and the starter pack includes some of each to experiment with and find the ones you like. The swivel joint allows it to get into virtually any corner or narrow space and to get under any furniture with legs, including beds. I wouldn’t usually consider writing a review of a cleaning tool but this one is so good I want to add my praise.
I like using the swiffer. It is easier than getting out the full size mop and bucket. Not as good a clean, but nice for in between cleans or quick clean-ups. I wish it was a little sturdier feeling though. I always feel like I'm going to snap it to bits! I also wish the mop head was easier to maneuver. I try to use the scrubber on the edge and have a heck of a time getting it to stand on edge. I almost always have to grab it with my hand to get it to stay like that.
