How to Get the Most from Swiffer Refills
Posted on Monday, February 11th, 2013 at 7:00 am
My absolute favorite cleaning product of all time is the Swiffer Sweeper Refills. They make cleaning extremely easy and they smell good, too! You can use them to clean things that you may not have realized, (which can prevent the need to spend money on multiple cleaning products). It also helps if you know where to find Swiffer coupons. Here are some tips for getting the most from your Swiffer Sweeper Refills.
How to Get the Most from Your Swiffer Refills
The Swiffer Sweeper is a combination broom and mop that is designed to make the task of cleaning floors quicker and easier. Personally, I’ve found that if you forget the mop and just use the refill cloths that they go a whole lot farther! Here are some ways I get the most from a box of Swiffer refills.
Flip it Over
Try this trick to get your floors really clean in a short amount of time. First, sweep them with a regular broom, and remove the dirt via a dustpan. Next, use a Swiffer cloth to scrub the dirtiest areas of the floor. This involves sitting on the floor.
This method will remove quite a lot of dirt and dust really quickly. When one side gets dirty, flip it over and use the other side. Use the attached rough strip to attack stubborn dirt. You end up using less Swiffer cloths than you would have if you used the Swiffer mop. You also get two times the Swiffer (since you are using the backs, too).
Clean the Bathtub
Cleaning the bathtub is a chore that few people enjoy. It goes a lot faster if you use a Swiffer refill cloth! That ring of “grime” just wipes away when you use a Swiffer cloth. In my experience, very little scrubbing is required. It is extremely effective! I’ve never had to use more than one Swiffer cloth to clean my bathtub (even it when it was really dirty). This can save the money you would have spent on a cleaning product that is designed to be used only on bathtubs.
Clean the Toilet Without Paper Towels
Obviously, you will need to continue using a toilet bowl cleaning product and a toilet brush to clean the inside of the toilet bowl. What about the outside and other parts of the toilet? Many people use a bathroom spray and plenty of paper towels to wipe away the germs and grime. Instead, use a Swiffer cloth.
Use one Swiffer cloth to wipe the top of the toilet tank, the rest of the tank, the handle, and the seat. Flip it over, and fold the dirty side into itself. Use the clean side to wipe off the outside of the toilet bowl, right down to the floor. It’s fast and easy! You won’t go through as many paper towels next time you clean the bathroom.
Use a Coupon
You can find coupons for Swiffer products on the Swiffer website. I would also recommend scanning through the coupons right here at FreeCoupons.com to see if there are any for Swiffer. Coupons.com is another potential option.
