Utilizing the Swiffer Sweeper consists of a two-stage process. The first stage uses the dry cloth, which picks up dust, dirt and pet hair from the floor. The second stage uses the wet cloth, which cleans dirt and grime. Either cloth can be used with the Swiffer Sweeper, but the system works best when the dry cloth is used, followed by the wet cloth. Using the Swiffer Sweeper is straightforward and simple. The sweeper is meant to replace a broom, dustpan and mop.
