This Swiffer Hack Creates the Ultimate Glass-Cleaning Tool

A woman puts a microfiber towel onto a Swiffer.

Reaching all the way up to the top of your bathroom mirror can be a pain. Thanks to a clever TikTok hack, though, things are about to get a lot easier.

TikTok content creator Mai Zimmy converted a Swiffer floor duster into a glass cleaner, and it’s a simple trick that’ll make your life a whole lot easier.

In her video, Zimmy takes her favorite glass cleaner and applies it to her bathroom mirror as normal. Then, instead of a wet Swiffer-brand cloth, she attaches a microfiber towel to the end of the sweeper. Holding the handle from the bottom, she uses the newly attached towel and cleans the mirror. Because the Swiffer has such a long reach, she is able to easily clean the very top of her mirror with no need to grab a step-stool, get on her tip-toes, or stretch until her arm gets sore in order to reach it.

Zimmy’s hack can actually be used in a few different ways, though. If you have large glass doors or windows, you can take the same steps she uses on her bathroom mirror for them. With the hack, you no longer have to bend cleaning them.

Turns out, this is a floor and glass cleaner all in one!

Our founder and CEO Lowell Heddings adds that you can use the same trick if you run out of refills sheets for your Swiffer. Use the same sort of microfiber cloth, but instead of glass cleaner, use your favorite floor cleaner and get to work.
