Swiffer vs The Store Brand - Find out which is the best cleaning product for your needs

I’ve been using Swiffer products for a while now, and I don’t need further convincing to prove they are quality products and will get the cleaning job done with speed and thoroughness. But just for fun, I was sent some store brand wet mop pads and dust mopping cloths to make a real comparison – a Swiffer Challenge if you will – for what I already knew. I must say, I was A.M.A.Z.E.D.

First off, right out of the package, I could see a difference in both the wet mop pads, and the dusting pads before I even put them to the test. Compared to the Swiffer Wet Jet pads, the store brand was rough, and stiff. I knew it wasn’t going to be nearly as absorbent as Swiffer. I used the store brand first, and attached it to my Swiffer Wet Jet. As I mopped, it seemed to skid across the floor and it left what I call “Holidays,” those areas that didn’t get wet, or left open marks where no cleaning solution was spread around.

After I cleaned a measured amount of floor surface I switched to the Swiffer Wet Jet pad. It was definitely softer, and had an absorbent feel to it. I cleaned the same amount of floor space in a different area, then compared the two pads. Wow! The store brand was hardly dirty at all! The Swiffer pad was fully dirty, and there were no “holidays” left on the floor area I cleaned. The store brand may be cheaper, and they do try to make their product “look” the same as Swiffer, but does that really matter when what you care about is “clean?” I knew I could have kept cleaning with the Swiffer pad, but for the sake of comparison, I stopped at the prescribed measured area.

Ready for the reveal?

It’s kind of crazy right? I think I’ll go for the product that is actually picking UP the dirt from my floors!

I also tested and compared the Dust Mop Pads. I know you’re dying to see the results, so……
