I will spare you the advertising spiel, since they do a good job of speaking for themselves - but I have never been so insanely excited about a simple cleaning product before.
Since I’ve got two cats, one which has been dubbed “The shed-beast”, and I shed like a maniac myself, there’s lots of stray hair around the house. With the hardwood floor, it collects in the corners where the Hoover doesn’t reach, and the broom never seems to pick it up - it just sticks to the bristles and spreads around the house.
This thing is so static-y when you push it around, I could actually hear it crackle! It picked up hairs and fuzzies and dust that I didn’t know existed on my passably-clean floor! It’s got a long handle, so I got rid of all those annoying ceiling-webs that always seem to pop up before company shows up…
Needless to say, this item is a gift from the cleaning gods. I give it my full endorsement.
