Back to School Cleaning Tips
Last month (yeah I am that far behind) Swiffer® reintroduced its Dry Cloths, 360 Duster and WetJet Solution, just in time for back to school season. Minimize constant sweeping and dusting, and have bacteria take a field trip from your home.
Swiffer® is redefining the meaning of “clean” with upgraded products featuring new High Definition technology. The Swiffer High Definition line gets your home ready for its close up by offering a deep clean that passes even the closest of inspections. The collection of newly improved products includes Swiffer Dry Cloths, Dusters and WetJet Solution. And the timing could not be better, as we move away from the peaceful summer months and head into the welcomed, but hectic back to school season.
Passing the “High Definition” Test
Is your home clean? Would you put it to the “High Definition” test? With the Swiffer product reinventions, you can upgrade your home to a high definition clean just in time for the new school year. Swiffer makes cleaning up easier after muddy soccer games and messy science projects.
The new and improved Swiffer Dry cloths trap and lock dirt, dust and hair more thoroughly than a broom on multiple floor types, including textured surfaces and even grout lines. With an improved coating, it leaves floors up to three times cleaner than a traditional broom on dirt, dust and hair.
The new and improved Swiffer Dusters clean better than a dry dust cloth and are coated with Dust-Lock™ Adhesive, combining textured dusting strips with thousands of dust locking fibers to clean better than a regular dry cloth, even in tight and hard to reach places. Swiffer Dusters have thick gather strips that trap and lock more dust than before – two times more dust than a dry cloth.
Swiffer WetJet solution reveals more shine than a mop on glossy ceramic tile, hardwood and laminate floors. It improves cleaning by removing residue, decreasing streaking and hazing to reveal a floor’s natural shine.
Back-to-School Cleaning 101
Here are a few quick and easy tips for keeping your house in tip-top shape even during the busy back to school season:
It’s a Team Effort: Put aside a time each week for the whole family to clean the house. It is a great way to start good habits and gives your family a project to work on together.
What Goes Up Must Come Down: When cleaning a room, always start from the top of the room and work your way down.
There is a Time and Place for Everything: Assign a location in your house for backpacks, lunches and muddy soccer cleats. This will not only help your kids be organized and responsible for their own things, but it keeps the rest of your home clutter free.
Pencil it In: Create a master calendar of simple, daily chores – this will keep the whole family contributing each and every day!
Jump to the front of the class with Swiffer’s new Dry Cloths, Dusters and WetJet Solution. HD clean has never been this easy!
