The Swifter

How many Swifters does it take to clean a kitchen? ONE! And mine is dead.

I own the biggest collection of Swifter products in this town. I'm sure of it. But is it too much to ask that they work when I need them? I love and I mean LOVE my Swifter Vac but it died a horrible terrible death that ended with a big poof of smoke.

Now I got this little gem for Mother's day this last May so I most certainly did not expect it to give out so soon. And I just keep staring at it hoping that it will come back to life somehow. Now I could go get a new one but this little guy was a gift from my beautiful adoring children. They like to surprise me with these precious gifts so that I will have an easier time picking up after them.

Apparently I have forgotten where I put the "real broom". You know the one that has bristles on it and a handle. The one that made an appearance in the movie "The Wizard of Oz". I think my kids actually thought I rode that thing a time or two. But I will have to survive without either one for now until I make a trek to my local Target unless...... The Swifter Wet Jet will double as the broom. Now that's thinking!

I see a new Swifter product in my future!!
