Does It Work: Cordless Swivel Sweeper

When a mess is too big for a broom but not big enough for a vacuum cleaner, you're forced with a choice to make. Well, not anymore. There's a new "as seen on TV" cleaning tool making a bid to join your family. It's called the Cordless Swivel Sweeper. And this week we put it to the "Does It Work?" test.

Right on the front of the box it says, "Swivels and picks up like no other!" Well, that can be a good thing or a bad thing. We'll see.

You get an instruction booklet, the three metal poles that assemble to form the handle, the ni-cad battery and charger and the main sweeping unit.

The battery will need to charge for 8 hours. It's supposed to give you 45 minutes of work on a full charge.

We created a few messes--some of them on carpet, some on the tile floor and some along baseboards and under cabinet ledges. The sweeping unit has brushes around all four edges that flick the debris into a tray. Once it gets full, some of the debris comes back out onto the floor. But if you empty the debris tray regularly, all is well.

The Cordless Swivel Sweeper performed well on all counts. The 2 lbs. Swivel Sweeper was especially useful on steps.

"Does it Work?" We give the Cordless Swivel Sweeper a "yes."

We must note, this product leaves us with some concern about durability. It just doesn't have a good, rugged feel. And at $35, you're going to want it to last.

We bought the Cordless Swivel Sweeper at Target.

    Dak Prescott visits in East Texas for good cause

    Saturday, April 29 2017 12:19 AM EDT2017-04-29 04:19:22 GMT

    At this time last year, a guy by the name of Dak Prescott was still on the draft board. In fact, the Mississippi State star didn't hear his named called until Saturday during the fourth round. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott turned out to be the hidden gem of the 2016 draft class. The NFL AP rookie of the year was in Longview Friday night for a fundraiser supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Pines.
