Swiffer Wet Jet Pads

Swiffer Wet Jet Pads

Swiffer Wet Jet Pads might just be the best product you never knew about. I say this because at one time I didn’t know what all the fuss was about over a simple, light-weight floor, light-duty floor mop. I learned differently when I had my basement floor finished in laminate. What was once a arduous, long task of sweeping then mopping has turned into a very quick and efficient job with the swiffer wet jet pads. The secret is how well this works is not in the mop but in the pads!

You can spend most of your hardwood or laminate floor cleaning by simply using the Swiffer Dry Pads. Essentially, these replaces the need for a broom and a dustpan. Simply attach them to the head of your swiffer broom and they will literally pick up dust, dirt, and small debris like a magnet. Little or no elbow grease is required. Often times my laminate floor shows a fine film of dust when the sun shines through the windows in the morning. This is how I know the floor needs a quick clean up. When you cannot get it looking clean with the dry pads (not too often), you know it is time to switch to the Swiffer wet jet pads.

How to use both dry and wet pads with the Swiffer

The cute, little video below shows you how simple it is to dry and wet clean with the Swiffer. Swiffer also makes a complete Swiffer Starter Kit with spray feature. This is totally unnecessary. As the video below indicates, the simple, manual, hand-held, wet/dry broom for $12.00 works just fine.

Tip: Getting the most from your Swiffer Wet Pads

Don’t throw the wet pad away after you’ve used it or think it has gotten dirty on one side. Turn it inside out. Obviously, you will want to use the scrub strip pad first for the real, grimy stuff, but the other side is still wet and ready to help you get your floors sparkling clean.

Contigo Autoseal Water Bottle

Contigo Autoseal Water BottleThe Contigo Autoseal Water Bottle can be purchased on Amazon or other Department Stores for about $13.00. $13.00 seems expensive to me for a water bottle, but I needed something good that would last a while. The two things that lured me into buying the Contigo water bottle was its 32oz capacity and supposedly leak-proof water seal. As a school teacher, I am constantly moving around with text books, coffee cups, and papers which I have to keep dry.  Also, the Contigo 32OZ water seal bottle is made from durable, BPA-free, light-weight plastic, so I can comfortably carry it in my laptop bag without worrying about spills. This particular Contigo water bottle is designed very ingeniously so you the water bottle remains sealed at all times until you push the button on the opposite side of while you drink from it. I can move around the classroom and take drinks without leaving the water bottle open or exposed to my germful students. I thought this was one of the best items I’ve purchased in a long time until about 3 weeks later.
