Unless you've been living in a cave you've probably seen the commercials for the Pledge Fabric Sweeper (for Pet Hair.) Now, as you know, Miss Ginger's precious angels have been known to shed a bit, so anything that can simplify the ensuant cleanup would be a welcome addition at Chez Ginger. But does it work? And is it worth the money? Inquiring 'Snaps want to know!
First, dear GingerSnaps, you must know that for the value this product adds to your life, it is CHEAP! Miss G paid about 4.99 for one at her local Kroger- the one on West Gray, where all the cute boys shop and all the gay realtors advertise on the shopping carts.
Anyho, she brought it home to try it out on the infamous "orange chairs", which local 'Snaps know is a danger zone to all things black and nappy! (She means velvet and corduroy, not rugrats!) As all true cat lovers know, a cat's favorite perch color is inversely proportional to the color of it's fur- Shelby's white belly prefers darker hued fabrics, while her brown brother Jackson prefers lighter and whiter shades. With a few little "swish, swish, shwishes" (quite easy for Miss Ginger) the lightweight, non-motorized contraption removed and contained every speck of cat hair, at least as effectively if not better than a full size vacuum cleaner! And best yet, you can keep it handy (like near the remote) so you can whisk up pet hair as it occurs! Any 'Snap who shares their home with any sort of beast should have one, and it definitely earns the coveted 5 lipsticks!
By now, any pet parent worth their kibble has probably tried the Swiffer Sweeper, the electrostatic floor wand that attracts dust and fur and traps it for disposal. Miss G has a love/hate relationship with her Swiffer- bipolar bitch that she is. Yasee, while she loves the way it catches dust and fur, anything larger just kinda gets pushed around in front of the thing, and heaven forbid it actually works it's way up under the pad, where it causes friction and destroys the pleasant glide and takes away the "swiffness" of it all!
Well, those clever engineers at Proctor and Gamble must have heard Miss G's bitching all the way from Cincinnati, so they came up with the Swiffer Sweepervac! This clever gadget is like duct taping a Dust Buster in front of a Swiffer, only way better designed and much prettier! The little vacuum nozzle sucks up the kibble and litter, leaving the pad free to glide the whole unit effortlessly across the floor to catch dust, lint, and fur. At about $40, it's not quite the incredible value represented by the Pledge Fabric Sweeper, and it requires charging and makes a high-pitched whine which sorts negates the "swiffness". For that reason, Miss G holds the Swiffer Sweepervac at 4 lipsticks. Still, it's worth having if you have hard-surfaced floors in your home.
