Swiffer Carpet Flick
By: Lauren Keith
Amy and I assemble the Carpet Flick handle, and the sticky cartridge just slides right into place. We scatter some hole punches all over the office floor. The Carpet Flick picks them up, and it's pretty quiet, too, unlike your vacuum sweeper. However, in just a short amount of time, our cleaning cartridge is already full! We can tell because the Carpet Flick spits out some of the hole punches we've already picked up!
The claim on the box also says the Carpet Flick can pick up glitter. Both Amy and I hesitate a bit as we scatter the glitter. Will it really pick it up?
Perhaps surprisingly, the Carpet Flick picked up the glitter, but it also popped out another hole punch! Still, Amy's impressed the Carpet Flick picked up the very fine glitter, so we keep on going.
Plus, I'm not so sure this Carpet Flick is inexpensive. The startup kit costs $12; refill cartridges are $4. Remember we used two cartridges just on the mess we made with the hole punches! However, there are some advantages to the Carpet Flick.
