For decades, people have used the simple mop and bucket to keep their floors clean. In 2001, Swiffer Sweepers were released and millions of consumers were introduced to a new, more convenient way to clean. The Swiffer Wet system offers an all-around better experience. It’s easy to use and uses less water than the typical mop and bucket. Households went from using gallons of water to ounces of solution to clean their floors. Every household that uses Swiffer Wet could save over 70 gallons of water per year vs. mop and bucket cleaners. 50 million people in the United States currently have access to Swiffer Wet pads.
