Wet Mops and Glass Cleaners
By: Amy Jacquin
One cleaning tool that's really hot right now... a disposable mop pad, with a trigger that squirts cleaning solution directly onto the floor. But which brand is best? We compare the Swiffer Wet Jet, to the Grab and Go. And later, we look at Windex, verses an off-brand called Glass Cleaner.
The Wet Jet it easier to apply than Grab and Go, because with that brand, you have to stuff the pad down into the holes. Our mess is a buttery grease used to make popcorn, because it'll really take something to cut through it and wipe it clean.
But we see a problem with the Grab and Go... the pad isn't digging into the grout, and the grease settled there remains untouched. We examine the pad, and it's worn around the edges, but the middle is barely even wet. We think it's pushing the grease around more than absorbing it.
Now we move on to a mirror splattered with water and toothpaste residue. For this test, we clean the mirror with Windex and the value brand Glass Cleaner... both claim to be streak free.
