I don't know who came up with this idea but I love this thing. It's a swiffer vac, it replaces your broom. I HATE sweeping, I tolerate vacuuming so this gets my sweeping done without all the effort. I just had to post pics of it 'cause I love it. It picks up all the tiny little dust that your broom misses and cereal size pieces. Now someone needs to make something along these lines for wiping off the counter, 'cause I HATE that too.
