 My favorite is the regular Swiffer Sweeper because it’s so easy to use and picks up the most dirt. Second favorite is the Swiffer Wet Jet because not only does it pick up the dirt, debris and pet hair but it also makes the floors smell clean! 

 They are great for pet owners! They are very safe, effective and quiet. Because they are quiet and there is no loud noise they don’t frighten pets. This is especially of value for cat owners as most cats are afraid of loud noises like vacuum cleaners. 

 The fact that they are quiet is also beneficial for consumers with sleeping babies so as not to wake them up. 

 I would definitely recommend these Swiffer products to friends and family that have pets. They are light weight (easier than lugging heavy vacuums for women), easily assembled (so easy kids can assemble them in minutes), cost effective, easy to use and they effectively clean up pet hair, pet saliva, dog and cat urine, general dirt and debris in minutes. 

 We now use Swiffers in our veterinary hospital daily to clean up pet hair, dirt and debris. They are great on hardwood, linoleum, and tile floors. The time required is minimal. In a matter of minutes everything was clean! 

 We also brought it home and had equally great results. I use it personally and it’s so easy to use that my children now use it as well. It’s great for kitchen floors too. 

 The Swiffer brand means great products!
