SWIFFER SWEEPER VAC -- Review & GC Giveaway -- CONTEST CLOSED!


CONTEST CLOSED!

Not long ago, I was contacted by My Blog Spark to see if I was interested in reviewing the fabulous Swiffer Sweeper Vac. Of course, I said YES!

Swiffer is a name I know and respect. So, I was quite eager to try this product!

When it came, I was so excited to put it to use and I was not disappointed at all! It's so easy to get started -- the hardest part is waiting for the battery to charge!
The next morning, after the battery had charged completely, I placed the dust cloth on the sweeper (easy peasy) and got down to business.

The Starter Kit I received came with small canisters of dirt and cereal to toss on the floor and sweep up as a trial.

I don't know what I was expecting, exactly. I thought it might pick up some of the stuff, but not all of it.

WOW! Was I ever surprised! It DID pick all of it up and even more! This is quite the little sweeper vac -- it's fairly quiet and very powerful. I've used it in every room so far with tile floors and haven't been disappointed.
It's so lightweight, too. It's not a problem to move the vac from one room to another. Isn't that a relief?

Okay, I am SOLD on the Swiffer Sweeper Vac! I'm sure you will be, too!

Keeping up with cleaning your home is no day at the beach. You have to haul out the broom and dustpan for even the simplest jobs. (How do people track in so much dirt anyway?)

Worst of all, no matter how much time you spend sweeping up messes, it seems like no time before you have to pull out the broom and start all over again.

Before you throw your arms up in frustration, we´ve got a solution. It´s the NEW and improved Swiffer SweeperVac with Double-Action Clean. The vacuum picks up the big stuff while the electrostatic pad traps and locks in dust and smaller grit. Double-Action Clean means less carrying around a broom and dustpan, and more cleaning. But don´t take our word for it; take the Double-Action Challenge and see for yourself.


The Swiffer SweeperVac is great for:
• Pet hair
• Wood, tile or vinyl floors
• Large food objects like raisins, cereal; and craft
supplies such as beads
• Non-carpeted stairs
• Under appliances and furniture


Dry Cloths are great for:
• Under tables, beds and cabinets.
• Inside closets
• Around pet areas
• Under appliances
• Getting dust, hair and crumbs without turning on
the vacuum
The Swiffer Sweeper Vac Starter Kit includes:
1 Rechargeable Vacuum Sweeper
2 Disposable Dry Sweeping Cloths
1 Battery Recharger

The Swiffer Sweeper Vac is available at most locations across the Nation, to find the store nearest you, simply visit Swiffer's Store Locator
