Free Stuff Details
Swiffer is a line of cleaning products by Procter and Gamble and Michael Rand. Introduced in 1999, the brand uses the “razor-and-blades business model” in this case, the consumer purchases the handle assembly at a low price, but must continue to purchase replacement refills and pads over the life of the product. Launched in 1999, the Swiffer has become a half-billion dollar brand in fifteen countries. Swiffer WetJet is a mop. It only utilizes WetJet brand solvent in a special, unopenable bottle. Swiffer Sweeper is a combination sweeper/mop. That is, it can use either dry or wet-type disposable cloths. The wet type are for mopping and the dry type are for sweeping lint. Swiffer Sweeper-VAC is a lightweight vacuum cleaner. It utilizes a dry cloth for picking up lint and the vacuum is for removing crumbs. As with all bagless vacuums, the filter needs to be cleaned after each use but placed into a wastebasket if it is too dirty to clean. The system cannot utilize wet cloths.
