Don't Skip This Step Before Using Your Swiffer
Think of cleaning your floors as sanding a table or filing your nails. In most cases, you'll want to start with the larger grit first, then work your way down to the finer grit.
Likewise, before you mop your floors, begin by vacuuming to remove the majority of dirt, hair, and crumbs. Follow up with a Swiffer to capture any remaining dust and allergens.
Swiffers depend on electrostatic cling to trap dust, keeping it from redistributing around your home, and are excellent for picking up tiny particles that your vacuum may miss.
However, if you skip the vacuuming step, your Swiffer pad might not be strong enough to handle larger debris and could lose its effectiveness when clogged with hair and dirt.
