The secret to child labor

You know the old adage about how kids always want to help with chores right up until they’re finally old enough to do a good job? I’ve yet to master making dishes seem appealing, but I’m here to tell you that there’s an easy way to get kids to love dusting: Swiffers. Yes, Swiffer! I don’t know what’s so darn exciting about it, but I do know that 1) those fluffy duster thingies (yes, that’s the technical term) are foolproof and 2) my children will actually argue over who gets to dust.

I can only conclude that Swiffers contain both dirt-attracting properties and invisible sugar. I have no other explanation.

Today (February 24th, 2011) only, shop Swiffer products at and use coupon code SWIFFERFEB to save 50%, up to a total discount of $10.

They recently raised the threshold for free 2-day shipping to $39, but I’m still not having any trouble reaching that, personally.

  1. Swiffers are the best for dusting. I convinced my 6 year old son that the Mr Clean Magic Erasers really *are* magic, but that he has to use his superpowers to make it work. He puts on his cape and everything. (OK, so maybe “convinced” is a little too strong a word. Point is, he loves to get the scuff marks/crayon/pencil/goo off the walls with them.)
