You know those Swiffer commercials where someone is griping about how they have all of these cleaning difficulties, and then their doorbell rings. They open the front door, and it’s like a slightly creepy stalker has been listening to them, and they’ve been gifted with a new Swiffer product!
That’s how I felt when I received my package from BzzAgent. I was selected to test and review the Swiffer 360° Dusters Extender. The package came with the extender, as well as 3 fluffy refills.
I’m 5’3″. This product from Swiffer is a short person’s dream. Not to say that it doesn’t work for those who are more vertically blessed, but I know that the short people will understand me. I struggle to do tasks that my husband can do with no problem, like get a can of corn from the back of the second shelf in my cabinets. Poor me. I think I keep a step stool in every room, because I’m tired of asking my husband to do these things for me.
Now, at least I don’t have to call him for dusting. The Swiffer 360° Dusters Extender gives me an extra 3′ reach. Three whole feet! So if I’m 5’3″ and my arm is about a couple of feet long, plus the Extender, then that means I can now reach…um…pretty far!
I’ve got one of those fans in my living room that is so high that it’s practically impossible to clean it without a stool or a ladder. Until now! I had my friend test it out so I could take pics. She’s not as short as I am, but she’s not tall. And it worked! She was able to reach and dust my fan without any help.
When she first saw my package, she was excited. She cleans houses for a living, so she knows her stuff. “Oh wow, those are really good! And it comes with the three refills? That’s awesome!” Yes, yes. I must agree. It grabs about 3x more dirt and dust than your regular duster. And the refills are a great bonus!
Now that everything in my house is sufficiently dusted (and my husband can stop shaking his head), I’ve got to say that I love this thing. It almost makes dusting fun. Yeah, I said it. Dusting. Fun. Now I can reach places that I tend to neglect (don’t judge me) during my regular dustings. Blinds, fans, tops of the window frames and the top of the fridge.
I recommend this for people of all heights, of course. You just might feel a little bit more like a superhero if you’re one of my fun-sized compadres.
