Swiffer Sweep & Trap Perfect for Cleaning Our Wood Floors

Swiffer Sweep & Trap review

We only moved into the Blue Cottage six months ago. It was a new construction with tons of dust in it when we got the key, and I swear I still find dust in corners I’ve missed in this house.

Another cleaning challenge is the fact that our front door leads directly into our living room — we don’t have a mud room or entry hall.

That’s not really a problem in the summer because we leave our shoes — and most of the dirt — outside on the porch. But in the fall and winter we have to keep our shoes inside, and that creates a mess on the floor I’m cleaning up every day.

When I found out about the Swiffer Sweep & Trap, I thought it would be perfect for our hardwood floors.

I’m not in the mood to get out the vacuum cleaner all the time for life’s little messes, and this new Swiffer available at Target is the perfect solution: it quickly cleans it all, big and small: dust and bigger things like grass blades or little rocks and more.

Swiffer Sweep & TrapWhen the Swiffer arrived at our house, I put it together with my son right away and we tried it out. You can see how much dirt it picked up in just a few minutes in the top picture, all without using electricity.

Rotating blades pick up large particles and flick them into a dirt bin that is super-easy to empty. You just push those two silver buttons on the top of the Swiffer together and that detaches the dust bin.

The attached dry cloth (the same as the Swiffer Sweeper) traps dirt, dust, and hair that brooms may leave behind. I didn’t even attach the dry cloth on my first try and it still did a great job.

I wish it also worked on area rugs and carpets, but since we have wood floors in the whole house, this new lightweight Swiffer is a much-appreciated new gadget in our house. I’m thinking of buying another one so I have an extra one for upstairs.
