Swiffer Sweep and Trap Starter Kit
Three boys and a swiffer
With three boys and a husband who runs a business out of the house there is constant traffic in and out of my house. I got the new swiffer sweep and trap to try out. Normally I would use the broom and dust pan first and follow it up with the original swiffer sweeper to clean up any dirt and dust left behind or that fell from the dust pan. Now I dont really have a need for the dust pan and broom when using the swiffer sweep and trap. The sweep and trap rolls the crushed cookies, candy, dirt and dust right into its own built in chamber. Now when my kids step on the cookies or crackers that they drop on the floor they can grab the sweep and trap and pick up the mess themselves with less crying than the broom! :-) I would definetly recommend this product to everyone. It is a must for cleaning tools!

The Ultimate Swiffer!!!!
First of all, I hate dirty floors!!! I'm a stay at home mom of 3 children and we are home a lot!! I am always bare foot, and I can't stand crumbs and dirt on my floors. So, I was SUPER excited about this new Swiffer. It is so easy to assemble. All you do is put a dry Swiffer cloth on the bottom, and tuck it into the 4 holes on top. The cloth is durable and always stays in place, never slips off. The Swiffer glides across the floor so easily. When I used this new Swiffer I picked up Christmas tree needles, and graham cracker crumbs. I love this Swiffer!!! It picked up everything!!! Not one Christmas tree needle got away! One of my favorite thing about this Swiffer is that it is compact and easy to store. I always keep it handy so I can grab it in a hurry and get the job done! All of the Swiffer products are so cute and stylish, too. Makes cleaning fun! I would highly reconmmend this product. You won't be disappointed!!

I really love this sweeper!
First, the Swiffer Sweep & Trap is super easy to put together. When you put the dry cloth on, all you do is unfold the cloth and wrap it around the pad and tuck the sides into the rubber pad retainers.
Now you are ready to start sweeping. The only note on this is, that you can only go forward. The beater bar doesn't work in reverse. Once you figure that out, off you go!
I have mostly wood floors in my house, so I was able to use this sweeper a lot. It picked up in the holder, popcorn, pieces of yarn, dirt, hair, cereal, and so much more. As long as it fit under the front of the sweeper, it picked it up.
I have used many other products on this floor, from a broom to a sweeper to a vacuum, this is by far the winner. I would have to sweep up things like yarn or popcorn with a broom and then use a dust sweeper afterward. Now I can do both with one product. I was actually surprised at how well this sweeper worked! I like cleaning the floors now.
Once I was done, I took the dry cloth off and threw it away. This sweeper is light weight and it has an attractive design. The handle has a loop at the top, just like all of the other Swiffer products for easy storage. I can see this being a benefit to anyone with health issues like Arthritis. It is so light weight ,and easy to push around.
Like I said before, and I know this isn't possible to have, but the bar doesn't work in reverse, and that for me is just a wish to have, rather than a negative aspect of the sweeper.
I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an efficient way to sweep and dust their floors.
This is my new favorite cleaning tool. I will be using this for a long time. Great job Swiffer!

A Slight Improvement over the original Swiffer
I was excited to learn I would be testing the new Swiffer Sweep and Trap since I have used my Swiffer for years. It was easy to attach the dry cloth to the swiffer by just pushing the cloth into the grippers. I used the Swiffer to clean my tile floor. It picked up hair, dust and food particles pretty well. I had some pieces of leaves that we tracked in near my front door. I had to go over them several times and some of the pieces never got picked up. There were times when other debris just got pushed around and only some were swept into the dirt bin. All in all, about 75 of the dirt was picked up by the Swiffer. The sweeping cloth worked as well as my original Swiffer. I would use this in the kitchen after preparing a meal and also under the kitchen table after a meal.
It is very easy to clean out the dust bin by just pressing the buttons together and lifting out the bin and emptying it. I had to remove hair that had gotten wrapped around the axel of the sweeper head.
It did not work as well as my battery powered floor sweeper.
I would recommend it with reservations as it does a good job dusting the floor but not as well picking up larger pieces of debris. I will continue using the Swiffer as it is good to use to pick up dust.

Not a Fan...missed pieces of debris
I liked the look of the swiffer sweep and trap. It was easy to assemble and get it up and running out of the box. It was easy to maneuver and get in and out of small areas. It had a great swivel to it. The pad worked well to collect small dust and hair. However, I was not impressed with it's ability to collect larger pieces of debris, such as pine needles, small pieces of cereal, and remnants of dog food. It completely missed some pieces even when swiping over it several times. I ended up having to go back over it with the broom which defeated the purpose of using it in the first place since it ended causing me twice as much work. I would not recommend this product or buy it.

Sweep and Trap
I purchased the sweep and trap for cleaning kids' messes from my tile and hardwood floor. I'll give it one star for picking up larger debris such as cereal, but it DOES NOT pick up crumbs, grass, etc. I have always loved my swiffer products but I'm not impressed with this one!

Want a refund
This thing is terrible. it picks up somethings but not everything and it works more like a "vacuum" a bad one at that so you can't swifter it up like the regular swiffer. I would love my money back and would just buy the normal one instead.

Swiffer Sweep & Trap
Would not recommend! Bought one, and thought I had it easier with my pets so I won't have to take the vacuum out daily. Unfortunately it does not work. Most of the little millets from my birds don't come off the floor, they just get sweep towards a wall and/or corner.
The worst, wanted to bring it back to get my money back, but threw out the packaging!
