Swiffer Sweeper Starter Kit
Third Swiffer November 2008
This will be my third Swiffer I have purchased because each of the previous Swiffers has broken off at the connection between the sweeping plastic head and the first connecting aluminum handle. They appear to last about 6 months then break off and can not be repaired. The cleaning quality while not broken is good. If this occurs again, this will be the last one.

Tired of it breaking
I love my swiffer, until it breaks! The green top of the handle has come off on 3 different swiffers I have bought. I love the product but am tired of buying a new one every couple months when it breaks. I really wish the company would do something about this.

Not just for floors
The swiffer works great to dust walls and remove dirt from the ceiling around my ceiling fans. It slides easily along smooth painted walls.

In 2007 I purchased the sweeper starter kit. Handle failed in just 6 mos. I had to throw it away and didn't buy a replacement. Thinking about buying a new one now but afraid that handle will fail again.

You must be kidding
I finally broke down and purchased a swiffer sweeper. I couldn't believe how much dirt it left behind! I had to go over my kitchen floor with a broom after using the swiffer. Boy am I disappointed. I did like the handle and the way it swerved around, but the cleaning portion was sadly missing.

The product is wonderful. It gets in places I used to use a dust mop for. and collects the dust rather than just pushing it around. Some items don't cling to it, but are easily collected and removed in the old fashioned manner of dustban and broom.
I do have a recurrent problem though. It seems the handles are not very strong. I am on my third one in the past year. They keep breaking near the base.

Not to much pressure
I do like the product, but I have now bought two of them, and both times they have broke in the same place. Using this product the proper way down at the bottom where the green stopes and the pole begins, both of the ones that I have purchased have done the same thing, So not for sure if I like this product of not.

I broke the handle after just a couple of months. It is obvious that you can't put too much pressure on the handle, but even without putting alot of pressure on it, I broke it. Also, the wet pads for cleaning the floor don't even clean 1 floor before they are dry.
