I’ve owned a Swiffer for years, so when I heard of the new Swiffer Sweep & Trap, I was interested to see how it stacked up against my favorite Swiffer WetJet.
Swiffer’s new Sweep & Trap has two rotating rubber blades that are able to pick up larger particles. Plus, it still uses a Swiffer Sweeper dry cloth to help trap dust, lint, and hair that brooms can leave behind. The product was simple to snap together and I felt the handle was just the right height.
I tested the Sweep & Trap by using the device to clean up three different messes in the kitchen. The Sweep & Trap easily picked up a small pile of nuts and screws, as welll as a pile of wood chips and shavings.
One mess I was excited to use the Sweep & Trap on was the bird seed that our cockatiel enjoys flinging out of his cage. It picked up the bird seed with little effort and I was happy with how it performed.
How I think Swiffer Sweep & Trap Works Best:
The Sweep & Trap seems to perform at its best on flat surfaces. Also, I found that pushing it in a forward direction only worked best. The rotating blades should be at the front, when you are pushing. Sometimes, when I would pull it backwards, the blades would push the debris back out of the bin. I was easily able to correct this by only pushing forward, the 360 degree swivel head made it simple to make this adjustment.
I think the Swiffer Sweep & Trap would be a great cleaning product for those who have a hard time bending over to use a dustpan. The debris bin is very easy to empty and while it isn’t large, it has plenty of room to hold debris from a medium sized room before emptying.
All in all, I am pleased with the new Swiffer Sweep & Trap and will use it alongside my Swiffer WetJet to keep the kitchen and bathroom floors clean in between deep cleaning and mopping.
