Does anyone out there use a Swiffer?

Do you like it? Do you not like it? Do you have an ecological alternative? Is it the best thing since sliced bread, or could you live without it?

    If you have a Big Lot`s by you then check out the MR. Clean version. I have one were you wash the cleaning pad and make your own cleaning spray. It is the best.

    Love my Swiffer, I buy the generic refills for it! I have 2 cats, so I really get a lot of use out of it.

    It's amazing how much hair and small debris a Swiffer picks up. I like going barefoot, and it makes it nicer, with all it picks up. You can certainly sweep first, but, you'll be amazed at how much you didn't get with a broom. I also have the wetjet

    I have the swifter however, I use old towels, cut to fit, instead of buying the pads. A damp one works well to collect hair and dust. I let them dry (outside) then run them through 'air dry' on the dryer to get all the hair off before tossing in the

    I get the large packs at Sams. I have a lot of cats and can pretty quickly run through an entire bin. I keep telling myself, just before putting the bins in the recycling bin that they would be useful...
