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.
