Swiffer Carpet Flick Review: Great For Picking Up Long Hair

by Jessica

Jessica says:

The Swiffer Carpet Flick was just what I needed in my apartments.

My hair is very long and it's hard to notice it on the carpet.

In the past when I'd run the vacuum my hair strands that fell out would get wrapped around the cleaning head. I actually burned out a motor in one vacuum cleaner this way.

I found that the Carpet Flick was great for picking up all the hair that I couldn't see. I would use it before I ran the vacuum.

At college my roommates borrowed it to use in their rooms, too.

It was also great to use on days I knew I needed to clean but didn't feel like fussing with the vacuum cleaner.

I have to admit I'm disappointed that it appears to have been discontinued.

Of all the Swiffer products I've tried this was by far my favorite. I would love if it was brought back...it's a real pain taking the head of my sweeper apart to clean out the hair.

Taylor says:

Thanks for your review Jessica.

Basically, what this product looked to me like it was, was a sticker that you ran across the floor, to pick up light debris.

You're right though, cleaning hair out of the beater brush of your vacuum cleaner can be a huge pain!

One nice thing about this product was that it didn't require electricity, so you could just grab and use it easily.

If you've used any type of manual carpet sweeper please share your review of it here so we can find a good replacement type product for you!
