The Top Tool of Choice

Our go-to cleaning tool for this job is the Swiffer Dusters Heavy Duty Super Extender. Now you can Swiffer where you couldn’t Swiffer before. The Dusters Extender extends up to 6 feet — meaning you can take your cleaning game to new heights and never leave dust or cobwebs lingering again!

With coated fibres to grab onto dust and to trap and lock from every direction, the Dusters Extender actually removes dust and allergens* instead of moving it around. It has an ergonomic handle and 4 lockable positions on its pivoting swivel head for cleaning those out-of-reach places. So save time for what really matters: enjoying the summer!
