Talk about a slick business strategy. A company creates a simple product that makes life easier and is not terribly expensive. But as part of the deal, they get you hooked into buying refills from the company forever and ever. Take Keurig® for example. Once you’ve bought into their handy, dandy coffee system, you are stuck buying K-cups for the rest of your life. No thanks!
The Swiffer® sweeper is another perfect example. How many millions of American households do you think owns one (or more) of these infamous sweeper tools? I know I do. And once you have one, you need refills. Lots and lots of refills.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if you didn’t have to throw away the sweeper sheet every time you used one? New Bambooee Sweeper Sheets are made from durable bamboo material and each sheet is reusable up to 100 times!
- Made from a certified organic bamboo source
- Reusable and washable up to 100 times (machine wash OK but no dryer)
- One side has non-scratch scrubbing dots for tough messes on the floor and the other is side is smooth for general cleaning
- One roll of Bambooee Sweeper Sheets replaces up to 1,500 disposable sweeper sheets
- Sheet size: 11.5″ x 10.125″
The folks at Paperless Kitchen sent me a roll so I could give them a test-drive. The sheets feel surprisingly similar to regular, disposable sweeper sheets but are thicker and clearly more durable. Functionally they do the same job as disposable sheets, both for wet or dry jobs. So far, they seem to hold up fine to washing although I haven’t been able to test out the 100 uses claim quite yet.
