The Swiffer brand first hit the market in 1999. My home in 1999 was all hard floors, other than the two carpeted bedrooms. And I had two cats. It's not hard to imagine how quickly I ran out to buy my first Swiffer Sweeper. I was super pleased with how easily it picked up the cat fur, dander, and random dust and crumbs, locking it in for quick disposal. I started telling all my friends.
The next year (I think), Swiffer came out with their Swiffer WetJet. I didn't immediately pick one up, as they were a bit expensive at the beginning. But both my mother and my sister-in-law were singing the praises of their WetJets, so I made the investment. These days they retail for only $20-$25, and they incorporate so many advancements and improvements made over the last decade (including a tougher handle - I have been known to break mine in the past). Basically, if you don't have one, I really think you should.
I honestly have never been without these two essential cleaning tools since I bought my first ones. I truly am a Swiffer fanatic, so I was really excited to be invited to join Swiffer's brand ambassador team for this coming year. Yay! Over the next 12 months I'll be bringing you news and tips and spreading the good word about the Swiffer brand and how it can make your life a little easier. Who knows! There may even be a giveaway :)
In the meantime, I've been busy. The #SwifferFanatic team headed to P&G Headquarters in Cincinnati last month for some training and to get to know each other. We even had a fun scavenger hunt that included the opportunity to surprise strangers with Swiffer big green boxes like you see in the commercials. That was a blast! And, Swiffer sent us some big green boxes to share with people in our lives who we felt needed a good Swiffer introduction, so we got to do our own box drops at home too.
One of my recipients was my good friend Lindsay. She is a busy single mom, with a full-time nursing job. Her apartment has just two hard floors - a tiny bathroom, and her kitchen. But she was having to pull out a mop and bucket just to do those. Now, she can just grab her WetJet and get the job done in no time, giving her more time to spend with her son. And heck, she's on her feet all the time at work, I'd say the sooner she can get her chores done and get her feet up, the better. That's her Swiffer Effect.

My Swiffer Effect? Definitely the element of more time to spend with my family. But also Swiffer allows me to enjoy my pets more as the products are so effective at keeping their fur and dander droppings in check.
