What should I use on my hardwood floors to pick up the dust and cat hair that collects daily?

Sweep, vacuum and mop just can't happen everyday.

What do I use for daily care of hardwood floors? I have a pre-crawler who scoots around on her belly all day. I sweep and vacuum and mop but she still gets a handful of dirt and manages to dirty up her clothes.

What do I use? Chemical-free. Is there like a dusting wand or mop head or something that picks up stuff dry?

  • I really like a swiffer for pet hair. It really picks it up and you can throw it in the trash.

  • Swiffer. I have children with dust allergies. The swiffer is way more efficient on hardwood than sweeping. Sweeping churns up dust, the swiffer picks it all up without getting it up into the air.

  • I don't have hardwood floors, but I use the plain old Swiffer dry mop, which is basically a flat swiveling head on a handle, and you put the dry cloth on the head. It picks up dog hair--and I have the sheddingest dog who ever lived--from tile and linoleum really well, so I don't see why it wouldn't work for hardwood. I haven't been impressed with the wet Swiffer products, but the dry cloth ones and the dusters are great.
