This post is made possible by Swiffer. I was provided the featured products for free, but as always the opinions are fiercely my own.
Honestly, I’m not sure I can remember my dad doing a lot of cleaning when I was growing up. Did yours? Times have changed! Not only do I care about having a clean house – but I’m happy to pitch in and do my share. I heard someone say photos of dads cleaning are called “mommy porn”. Is that true?
Sharing the work is part of modern fatherhood – jumping in and helping with the kids and the house. And ya know what? I hope my daughter notices that I help take care of her and the house – I want her to grow up knowing that work in the home is everyone’s responsibility, and hopefully marry a guy who thinks so too.
And I’m not the only guy who feels that way! Check out some of these Stats!
- According to the Swiffer Cleaning Index, Dads today are pitching in nearly 2X more than their own Dads did! I can totally believe that’s true. How are things at your home?
- 98% of Dads Agree – having a clean home makes them happy! Okay, no big shock there?
- In fact, roles have really shifted as almost 50% of Dads today, say they do the lion’s share of the cleaning in their home! Hmmm. Did they ask their wives?
- With the Swiffer Wet Jet, busy dads are able to soak (sorry couldn’t resist) in their moments with the family because they have the clean up covered. That’s the #SwifferEffect!
Check out this video with star Anthony Anderson celebrating the #SwifferEffect!
You can also see a behind the scenes making of the video here.
But listen – as much as I want to be involved in keeping our home clean – I do love a good shortcut! I’ve been using cleaning tools from Swiffer for years, because they make cleaning up a snap. Plus, my Swiffer is super stealthy and quiet! I can Swiffer during nap time – or while I’m on business calls.
And I’m just one of many #SwifferDads!
I recently gifted a neighbor dad with his own Swiffer Big Green Box, because mops – they are so 1982!
Here’s what’s inside that Swiffer Big Green Box:
- Swiffer Wet Jet, Wet Jet Refills, Wet Jet Pad Refill
- Swiffer Wet Jet allows you to retire the old fashioned mop and bucket! It’s an all-in-one mopping solution that traps and locks dirt and grime instead of pushing it around.
- After you use the Wet Jet, you can simply tear off the used Power Pad and throw it in the garbage, making clean floors simple and effective.
- The Swiffer Wet Jet starter kit retails for $21.99.
It’s time to upgrade your cleaning tools – so that you can get the cleaning done fast, and be back to doing the things you love faster!
So tell me, are you a #SwifferDad too?
