  • I stilluse mine, but I no longer buy the pads and use their cleaner, too many chemicals and waste. I use micro-fiber cloths and a combination of water and vinegar to clean and disinfect my floors....cheaper and better for your family and the environment

  • I have one, its great for mid-week messes the kids make. Shoot, I could clean the floor under where they sit and eat after every meal they make such a mess. I also found online how to get into the cleaner bottle so I don't have to keep buying their cleaner, I fill it with my own environmentally friendly floor cleaner that I like. Also, you can get a microfiber pad to fit so you don't have to buy the refill pads, and just toss the microfiber pad in the wash and reuse. I bought my wetjet when it was on sale and I had a $5 coupon. I think they always have coupons available on their website. We have all wood floors and its been a big help for me for quick clean ups.

  • I use mine for the small clean ups, or the days that I just don't have time to mop. I only use it in my kitchen and bathroom though. It does horrible things to my concrete floors in the rest of the house.

  • I have one, but I like the Swiffer Sweeper with a wet cloth better

  • No, but I have always wanted to. They look so cool and easy on the commercials!

  • No. I had one and cleaned the floor and it still felt sticky. I also used it and then decided to get down and scrub it and it was filthy. They don't do a good job on textured floor like linolieum.

  • I used to, but I hated it. I felt like it didn't get the floor as clean as when I do it by hand.

  • I do and love it! The only floor I don't use the swifter wet jet on is the bathroom floor. I can never get that floor clean with either a swifter or a mop, so I do that on hands and knees.

  • I used to, but I hated it. I felt like my floors were still dirty and they felt sticky. Sure enough, they were. I replaced it with a steam mop, what a huge difference. And no chemicals, pads or batteries to replace.
