At first glance, the clean-up product dubbed the Swiffer looks good—it picks up dust fairly easily, sweeps up dog hair effectively. But then, after one dance around the house, you must rip off that piece of paper-y cloth and trash it, replacing it with a new one every time your pup drops a few more hairs. Suddenly the idea of the Swiffer and its ephemeral disposability seems dark and dastardly and bad for environment. Enter: Local company Swifforever and their nattily knitted, and, most important, washable, Swiffer covers. They fit on to the head of a Swiffer just as easily as the disposable doo-dads, work wet or dry, and can be cleaned in your washing machine or by hand, as needed. Plus, they're cute. And cute goes a long way in my book. Fifteen bucks for a bright-colored, hand-knitted, eco-friendly cleaning vehicle? Swifftastic.
