The Swiffer’s biggest appeal is the convenience of disposable cloths, and Procter & Gamble emphasized this advantage over washable dust mops in our interview. But despite the Swiffer’s ease of use and ubiquitous popularity, the fact that there are more effective cleaning options available—plus the Swiffer’s higher monetary and environmental costs—means that it isn’t the best choice for most people.

Sweep or vacuum the floor before mopping. Most mops do a poor job of picking up crumbs, hair, and other forms of solid debris. As such, you’ll need to use a broom, hardwood floor vacuum, or handheld vacuum to clean up the floor before mopping it.[3]

Whether used for wet or dry cleaning, mops are the foot soldiers in the battle for clean floors. Every organized home needs at least two: a wet mop, to pick up wet spills and wash hard-surface floors; and a dry mop, to collect dry dust, dirt, and pet hair.

Lets say you spill something like yogurt and granola on your kitchen floor. If you took your regular broom out and tried to sweep it up, you would have no luck washing the surface, and you would be left with a nasty looking broom that has bristles that are all stuck together, and possibly ruined. Use this rubber broom instead, and the bristles are sturdy enough to actually sweep this thick goo. Both the liquidy yogurt, and the dry, chunky granola will be swept up together, and will be easily collected. Use the regular bristles to get most of it into the dust pan, and then flip over to the squeegee side to sweep in anything remaining. You will still have a residue on your flooring, so add some soap and water, or squirt down your favorite cleaner and then scrub quickly using the bristles again in order to leave the surface sparkling. If it gets a little too wet, flip back to the squeegee side, and then dry it with ease.

What makes our pick so good at cleaning? For starters, there’s its double-sided head. The blue side is covered in chenille nubs made from a microfiber and synthetic blend. These chenille fingers are great at getting into cracks and holding onto lots of dust. The other side has white microfiber strips and alternating blue strips, also made of blended microfiber. In our tests, we found the blue chenille side to be the most effective at picking up the majority of the dust. The white side was useful for making a thorough second pass. Our pick isn’t pure microfiber, but the synthetic yarn doesn’t negatively impact durability and the O-Cedar was better at cleaning than some of the pure microfiber cloths we tested.

Pre-moisting can be done with a special washing machine or by hand by simply folding and packing the mops tight in a container and pouring the measured amount of water over them. The mops will then need about 5–10 minutes for the liquid to distribute evenly in their tissue before use. This offers some advantages:

The reason we don’t advise you to go for the cheaper products is that even if they can look like an attractive option due to their low price, they can end up costing you more in the long run. A cheap broom will be more likely to break after just a few months of use.

Wring the mop out when you’re done cleaning. Once you’ve mopped the floor thoroughly, hold your mop over the cleaning bucket and squeeze the mop head with your hands. Keep squeezing until the mop has little to no water left in it.[8]
