Mopping is an unpleasant chore. Fortunately, manufacturers of household goods have created many devices over the years to make the task a little more bearable. One of the latest is actually an enhanced version of a product first introduced years ago. The product is the **Swiffer Wetjet**, a battery- powered mop that is ideal for simple, everyday cleanups. **Mop Commentary:**** **Swiffer Wetjet is a device shaped like a small vacuum cleaner, with a long, straight body and a swivel head. The swivel head contains a disposable cleaning pad specially designed to attract debris. Just above the swivel head are two jets that transfer cleaning fluid to the floor for mopping. The midsection of the mop contains a space where a bottle of cleaning solution is attached and the cleaning fluid is transferred to the jets by pressing a button near the top of the handle.  Swiffer Wetjet has been around for a few years, but like I said above, this product is now new and improved. According to the manufacturer, the handle is stronger than before but the enhancement that you will notice more readily is that this version of Swiffer Wetjet has two jets instead of one, with a jet placed on each side of the head of the mop. A press of the button releases the fluid and the nice thing is that you have control over the amount of fluid that releases. A slight push releases only a small amount of fluid; a longer push releases more fluid. The fluid will squirt from the jets for the duration of time that your finger is pressing the button. The cleaning pads on the Swiffer Wetjet help aid in the cleaning process. They do not just push the debris around. They help trap the dirt and grime and lock it into place. The fluid also helps because it breaks up dirt and dissolves away locked- in stains. The fluid that comes with the Swiffer Wetjet starter kit has a basic, chemical/cleaning fluid smell that isn't very pleasant, but there are other refills for this mop that offer better scents.  Convenience is probably the main reason we use a mop like this so frequently. With the large amount of tile in my house, we don't have time to mess with a large, heavy mop or with a sponge mop that requires premixing water and cleaning solution in a bucket. We want to grab the mop, use it, and put it away in as few steps as possible. And the Swiffer Wetjet is really that quick and simple. About the only work necessary is to replace the cleaning pad when necessary and change the cleaning fluid when the bottle is empty. Other than that, there is little else to do. The fluid is used sparingly and is spread out so thin that it dries quickly.  With so many positive points, are there any bad things to say about the Swiffer Wetjet? Well, there are a few and the most obvious is the mop's cleaning limitations. This mop is intended for use on cleaning jobs that do not require much scrubbing. True, there is a scrubbing bar on the front of the mop, but this is still not going to be enough for a dirtier than average floor. The other disadvantage is the cost of cleaning fluid and cleaning pad replacements. Both are relatively expensive compared to the cheap cost of basic floor cleaning liquid and an occasional replacement sponge for a sponge mop. The starter kit contains a bottle of cleaning fluid and two cleaning pads to get you started, but you will need to replenish your supplies in a short time and the cost does add up.   

**Bottom- Line Viewpoint:**

Mopping is an annoying chore, but it is an essential task and manufacturers have helped make the task easier with their many inventions. Swiffer Wetjet is a very good cleaning device that makes mopping as convenient as possible and while it cannot handle the really tough cleaning jobs, it makes a good choice for the frequent mopper who doesn't have time to mix and rinse.

**Swiffer Wet Jet**

The **Swiffer Wet Jet** is a ready to use mop system that is intended to eliminate the old mop and bucket system.

The **Swiffer Wet Jet** works in 3 steps.  Squirt the solution on the designated spot, mop and then throw away the dirty mop pad.

The** Swiffer Wet Jet**  is very convenient for quick pick ups or spills but not what I would use to really clean my floors.  The refill bottles are relatively inexpensive and can be bought at any local retail store.  In order to use it you have also buy some pads to go on the bottom of the mop that you throw away after each use. 

For me, I would rather stick to the mop and bucket instead of the **Swiffer Wet Jet system**.  Since I already bought the **Swiffer Wet Jet system**, I tend to use it for the quick pick ups or spills.  Once I run out of the solution and the mop pads, I won't rebuy them again.  I'll probably throw out the mop.

I love the idea of the **Swiffer WetJet System** and how it works great for some.  It just doesn't "clean" my floors like I like them to be "clean".

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    I thought this would be perfect after moving into an apartment with vinyl floors. Although it is a simple a easy way to sweep and mop small messes the durability of the handle needs to be improved. The joint where the silver bar and the purple handle snapped after two days of use.

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    At first I loved it then I had to buy a new one because the hole that squirts out the cleaner wouldn't work. Come to find out it did the same as the first one did but on the first use. The first one lasted a month. Never will I buy another wet jet by swiffer for as long as I live.

    Really love this product

    By 

    from USA

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    I first had a regular Swiffer and just used the wet cloths. The problem is that they lose most of their wetness in the first little bit of a room. This means it either doesn't really get clean or you have to use multiple, which is a waste of money in a small room.

    I love this wet jet. The cleaner seems to last forever and using the dry clothes it seems to get the floor cleaner. I can use the amount I need on a particular area and not worry about having too much or too little cleaner on the floor. Some spots that aren't used as much don't need as much of the liquid, but other areas or places where food is dried on need more. You just put a little button and spray what you need.

    I think this is much better than cleaning the older style with regular mops because you have to put them in the sink (therefore getting the sink dirty from the floor), use dirty water, and it was just a mess. It is so much easier and cleaner to use the swiffer wet jet. I highly recommend it

    Leaves a residue on tile

    By 

    from Port Charlotte, FL

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    At first I thought I really liked the Swiffer WetJet. I have used and loved the dry Swiffer pads for many years and they work extremely well. Unfortunately, I wasn't happy with the WetJet. I find that it leaves a residue on my ceramic tile. You can't see the residue, which gives a false sense that the tiles are clean and shiny, because they do look nice at first. But then after a day or two the floor is sticky and dirtier than before they wre cleaned. I wear slippers around the house and noticed how dirty the bottoms became. I quickly realized this couldn't be good for our cats. It would make sense that if the residue was causing my slippers to get dirty would also be getting on the cat's paws and then they would be injesting it, which couldn't be good for them. I switched to a steam mop and never regretted it for a second. My tile has never looked better! No residue to harm my pets or dirty up my slippers. Plus the added bonus of no chemicals at all!

    Can't Live Without It!

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    I don't want to even think about life before the Swiffer Wet Jet. Ha-ha! With 6 kids, one being a young toddler, and a dog, this thing is a time and life saver! It's so easy to use, clean and replace the cleaning fluid bottles, wipes and batteries. It's just a complete overall time saver and stress reducer in our home. I cannot count the amount of times during one day where I just say, "Just grab the Swiffer!" One of the best cleaning inventions of all time! It gets into the hard to reach spots easily and swivels, making it super easy to get inbetween areas and at the edges of nearly anything. The cleaning pads are so easy to apply and take off and you can see how well they pick up dirt because the proof really is on the pad! The Starter Kit was very inexpensive and although the maintenance purchases (cleaning solution and pads) are moderately expensive, they last a long time so it's pretty inexpensive when you look at it long-term. I rave about and recommend this product to everyone!

    Swiffer WetJet: A Lot Nicer Than A Mop!

    By 

    from Pittsburgh, PA

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    The Swiffer WetJet is a well made floor cleaner that does a great job on my kitchen floor, hallway and first floor bathroom. I have a lot of pets and that means a lot of hair that ends up all over the place; while I still have to clean up small messes, spills and accidents that happen, I know that when I use this I am going to be able to get my floors completely clean without having to get on my hands and knees to get the job done.

    In order to use this you need the cleaning solution and the cleaning pads; the bottle snaps into the neck of the WetJet and I have never had any leaks or drips from it but you have to read the instructions before you start using it to get the best results. The cleaning pads don't scratch my floor but they are strong enough that if there's something sticky on the floor in the kitchen I can work it loose with it WetJet after I squirt the area.

    This is a lot nicer to use than a mop and a bucket because you don't have to wait for one section to dry before you start on another area; it doesn't dry instantly but its quick enough that you aren't going to slip or risk falling.

    You can get a couple different scented cleaning refills but I stick with the original version because I don't like scented cleaning products. Once or twice a year I have to get down on my hands and knees to scrape off gum or tar from the floor but those are things that you can't expect any type of mop or floor cleaner to remove. I have several older neighbors that have back and hip issues and I let them try this and they loved it. They can still do their weekly cleaning without being in pain or having the risk of slipping or losing their balance because of a wet floor.

    Good for quick clean up.

    By

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    I like having the Swiffer WetJet on hand for everyday cleaning of my floors. I have a yellow lab who goes outside through a sliding glass door, so the hardwood floor of our family room tends to get dirty, muddy or snowy depending on the season. The Swiffer WetJet is good for quick and easy clean up in this situation. I don't feel like it cleans or disinfects the floor super well, but it does the job temporarily. If I really want a clean floor, I find that a regular mop and bucket do a better job overall. The WetJet solution is just okay--I think it leaves behind a bit of residue. The pad isn't particularly big; it doesn't cover a wide area without going back and forth over and over. Plus, the pad gets dirty pretty quickly, so on a large, dirty surface it sometimes feels like I'm going over the floor with a dirty mop, as opposed to being able to ring out a traditional mop. The white scrubbing pad on the front doesn't really work that well. Overall, good for in between jobs and quick fixes, not for heavier cleaning.

    Little mop, big performance!

    from Brunswick, OH

    Comments about Swiffer WetJet:

    I love this product! I couldn't stand the traditional mops. They stayed dirty and I constantly felt like I was just washing my floors with more dirt. This invention eliminated all those worries. I love the flexibility of the swivel head and the convenience of being able to throw away the pads. I also love the skinny and compact size, allowing it to store easily just about anywhere. The cleaning solution is effective and cleans my floors very well. I also love the new versions with added scents. It is also so lightweight that even my young kids can use it with no problem. The only downside is the price of the cleaner and the pads, but otherwise I think this product is well worth the investment.
