    It's a floor sweeper that uses somesort of rubber looking things instead of bristles. I've only caught a bit of the infomercials once or twice, but I'm sure it's on all day long. Anyone ever try one of these? I'm intrigued.

    I have one... it works quite well on carpet picking up medium-sized particles like lint, etc.

    The key is to use numerous short strokes going slowly to pick up all the dirt and lint on carpets.

    Works like a regular broom on hard floors.

    I have a couple of those that I picked up at a woodworking show a few years ago. They work awesome! Great for getting dust & pet hair off linoleum floors, cleaning off pet bedding and such. They also work good for saw dust and the like. Nice thing about using one of these compared to a traditional push broom is that is doesn't make the dust fly all over the place as you are sweeping it up. If you remove the head from the pole, it also works good for getting lint & dust out of cloth car interiors as well.
