The Swiffer #BigGreenBox Came To Michigan!! My Home and my friend now have the #SwifferEffect


Among the things on my "I don't like to do list" cleaning is right up there on the top! Before moving to Michigan and marrying my husband, my homes would NEVER pass a white glove test, that is for sure!

My husband shares the same distaste for cleaning, but thankfully we have Cheryl!!

Who is Cheryl?   Cheryl is our housekeeper (Yes, I have a housekeeper, every other week, more on WHY in a second!), who is also my best friend, confidante and my "adopted" sister.

In order to understand the importance of Cheryl in my life, allow me to back track. When I moved into my husband's condo,  one of the first things he said to me was, "Cheryl STAYS!" I was taken aback, as any woman would be, wondering just WHO "Cheryl" was and why would she stay? After interrogating him to an extent known only by the FBI, I found out that Cheryl had been my husband's housekeeper for YEARS. He had no intention of letting her go, and after knowing Cheryl for the past 13 or so years, nor do I!




My husband received NO argument from me! Loathing cleaning as I do, and never having considered having a housekeeper, I grinned like the Cheshire cat that every-other-week someone else would do our main cleaning! Woooo hooo!


Cheryl is one of the hardest working women that I know, and when I was afforded the opportunity of receiving not one, but TWO Big Green Boxes from Swiffer (you know, the brand that makes cleaning easier and fun for the entire family, and friends who are like family!), I jumped at the opportunity!
.

 I had no Swiffer products in my home and I didn't think that Cheryl did either. Swiffer offers consumers easy-to-use sweeping, mopping and dusting cleaning tools for virtually every household surface!!

I would see commercials on TV and laugh (like the one featured below), and wonder what it would be like if the #SwifferEffect came to my home!!


I no longer had to wonder, because I received 2 boxes! I got to keep one #BigGreenBox and the other I decided to give to Cheryl to make her life easier! Having a cat AND a Shetland Sheepdog that sheds enough fur to knit a sweater, I desperately wanted the #SwifferEffect in our home to help Cheryl with her cleaning! When the boxes arrived, I planned to surprise Cheryl the next time she came to clean!
Look at what was in the box!!


We received:

Swiffer Sweeper: One simple tool that can be used to sweep and mop virtually all hard surfaces using both dry and wet cloths.

We have Pergo floors and this tool will GREATLY come in handy to help Cheryl clean our endless cat hair  and dog fur with EASE!! It will be great for me too for the in-between floor maintenance that must be done on a regular basis.

Set up of the Swiffer Sweeper is super easy!


Wait until you see the DIRT, HAIR AND FUR that it picked up!




Swiffer Duster: Uses thousands of fluffy fibers that change shape to fit anywhere to trap and lock dust without spreading it around the home.

Cheryl and I were THRILLED to receive this duster! I had NOTHING like this in my home prior to the arrival of the #BigGreenBox and it is perfect for our ceiling fans, artwork, mirrors, etc!

WAIT TIL YOU SEE THE DIRT IT PICKED UP!!




See that smile on Cheryl's face?
Swiffer actually makes it fun and easy for others to help out with cleaning! This leaves people with more time to enjoy what matters most to them, and less time worrying about or dealing with the mess at home.

It made me happy to be able to share these marvelous cleaning tools from Swiffer!! Cheryl was excited to have a box of Swiffer products of her own to make cleaning HER home easier, and even better, she has a box of Swiffer cleaning products  at MY home to help make cleaning MY home easier!! That leaves us more time to chat and laugh when she is here!

Thank you Swiffer!

  1. I have all their products & use them regularly. I was hoping when I read this that they would have allowed you to host a giveaway. I could always use more and cleaning supplies are so expensive. Bummer!

  6. My late wife used all of these products. It took me a while to figure out what they were all for, and how they were used. I still have not used up her stockpile. The products work however. Have a good weekend.

  9. I have to clean the house today since I don't have to work. My wife verbally scolds me if I fail to use the Swiffer to get the dust from under the furniture and beds. Strangely, she wants me to use furniture polish instead of the Swiffer when dusting but I usually ignore that request. Shhh...

  12. OMG, Caren, I am so jealous that you have a housekeeper!! I wish my hubby had had one that he insisted on keeping when I married him....LOL. I used to be a meticulous/obsessive housekeeper, but the older I get, the less I worry about it! Swiffers are so great for picking up the pet fur!!

  21. Our mama is totally dependent on Swiffer products with all of us in the house. We would be swimming in a sea of fur without Swiffer.

  25. How do I get to host one of these. I could definitely use everything in the box with 3 cats, a 100 pound dog, a husband and two kids.

  26. I just saw this. Watch out for the Swifter WetJet cos TW is certain that that’s what poisoned Nicky and caused his sudden death. She’d used it to wash the kitchen floor and he’d walk on it while it was still wet and then lick his paws.
