Reviewers on Amazon.com gave the Swiffer Sweeper positive reviews when compared to a regular mop, with 4.3 out of 5 stars. The cost of the dry and wet pads, however, makes the Swiffer Sweeper more expensive than a mop.
The reviews offer that the wet Swiffer Sweeper pads do just as well as a mop with more recent spills and stains, but require scrubbing for spills that are stuck on the floor. The swivel head of the sweeper makes reaching tight spaces and corners easier than a mop. It is recommended that the Swiffer Sweeper be used on a regular or daily basis to make this more effective.
