Meet the Newest Addition to the Swiffer Family! {Review & Giveaway}

Swiffer Bissell Steamboost

As a P&G Mom I am lucky to get an early try at many of the new products the brand puts out. I was especially excited to see that our September box of goodies included the new Swiffer BISSELL SteamBoost. Yes, I realise I should be a little less excited about cleaning supplies, but really, half my life is spent cleaning up after someone, so these things are pretty important!

The SteamBoost is a steam mop that deeply penetrates dirt and helps remove messes regular mops just can’t clean. You fill the reservoir with water, attach a moistened Steam Pad and plug it in! No other cleaning solutions are needed. The steam pads do have a steam-activated cleaning solution built in, and are available in two scents - open window fresh and lavender vanilla & comfort.

Given my longstanding love of the the Swiffer brand, I was delighted to try out their latest addition. It's super easy to use, does a fab job on my tile and hardwood floors, and leaves a great scent when it's done. The scent is light and pleasing, not harsh or chemical-ly. I'm now using this in conjunction with my Swiffer SweeperVac to keep my floors looking like someone who actually takes care of their house lives here.

I have been using a Swiffer WetJet for most of my cleaning, and although I still think that will have a place, the SteamBoost lifts dirt more easily, and I think will be easier for my Little Boo to use. If I can convince him to give it a try.

One thing I'm on the fence about is the length of the cord. It's pretty long, which gives it a great reach. My house is just about all hardwood or tile (the family room downstairs has the only carpet.) I can do my whole main floor (500 square feet) without finding a new outlet. But this also means there's a lot of cord to deal with. The inconvenience of managing the cord is though, I think, outweighed by the convenience of its great reach in our open-concept home.
