Swiffer 360° Duster Starter Kit
Not what they used to be
I have been using Swiffer dusters for several years. While I thought they were a little pricey, it was one luxury that I allowed myself because they made my housework much easier. However, during the course of the past year, something has happened. The quality has been changed. They are thin and extremely flimsy. They tear and start to fall apart while I am trying to put them on the handle. And, I can only dust about 30% of what I used to be able to dust with one duster.
Considering how the product has degraded, they have now become way too expensive to continue to purchase. So, I'm now using washable microfiber dust rags and nylon dusters.

Not built to last
I use these dusters to do professional house cleaning, and although they seem to get to the harder to get to places, they don't get much use before they break or just fall apart. The refill pads just fall apart on the first use. You used to be able to wash them for re-use, but now they just fall apart. The part that holds the dusters on the extended wand is thin and breaks easily. Instead of buying an inexpensive replacement part, you have to re-buy the whole thing again. The concept is good, but the quality is very poor and not built to last at all.

I absolutely love the swiffer dusters. They are so much easier to use than a normal duster or rag.
I still use my furniture polish on my wood but the swiffer is great for dusting pictures, tv's, baseboards and chairrailing, ceiling fans, etc.
It makes cleaning much easier for me.

the duster tears easily putting on the blue extention handle. Especially. For the price of 6 in a box there should be 10 in a box. I wish you make the blue long handle duster a bit stronger then what it is.

This product should be taken off store shelves immediately. It is about as worthless as a pet rock and not as much fun. It is almost impossible to thread the dusters onto the prongs of the handle without the prongs poking through. When in use, the duster is so flimsy that the prongs work their way through, raising the risk of scratching surfaces. I threw it away and went back to the old reliable dustcloth. Don't waste your time or money on this product.

Does Great Job
In dusting computers, keyboards, printers, monitors, TVs it works fantastic. Assembly could use further clarification for the last step. Otherwise, the product is great.

Love this product. Suggestion, please make this same product with a large dusting head and a long handle for dusting wood floors. That would be great.
