This 115-Year-Old Brand’s Retro Sweeper Is Getting Glowing Reviews from Amazon Customers
As we head into a new season of apple picking and roasted butternut squash, it’s time to do a little fall cleaning. It might not be your favorite chore, but someone’s gotta do it! Luckily, we’ve found an easy — and affordable — cleaning solution for you. Enter: the Fuller Brush Electrostatic Carpet & Floor Sweeper. This compact sweeper is your answer to picking up crunchy leaves that have been tracked inside, cleaning up flour spills while baking pies, and pretty much any usual mess. And with a 4.4-star rating on Amazon, you know it’s worth it. Plus, this retro-inspired cute sweeper retails for just $79.99.
A sweeper is a must-have household item, especially for those who don’t want to lug out a clunky vacuum cleaner every day. It’s perfect for touch-ups between deep cleans, picking up after pets, and quickly cleaning up spills. One busy mom of toddlers reports that the Fuller Brush “gets all the little crumbs and crud and if a tiny toy gets in [the carpet] it’s easy to retrieve. Play doh. Eggs. Chips. You name it.”
If you’re not familiar with Fuller, it’s a super-old home appliance brand that’s been making stylish products for 115 years. The retro brand has amassed a devoted following over the decades, and love for its products has even been passed down over generations; as one Amazon reviewer writes, “my mother and grandmother swore by” the Fuller Brush. We love this family tradition!
The sweeper is incredibly versatile. It can clean nearly any surface, including hardwood, tile, wood, low pile carpet, and laminate flooring. It’s handy for getting rid of dust, picking up glass, extracting hair from carpets, and, according to one Amazon reviewer, cleaning up tinsel and pine needles from under the Christmas tree. The sweeper is especially useful for pet owners: One animal lover wrote that it “Does an amazingly good job of picking up both smaller particles and hair, as well as ‘chunkier’ stuff like kibble or tracked cat litter.” Others agreed, saying, “We love it! Picks up our yellow lab’s hair easily.”
Plus, the Fuller Brush is also super easy to use. As one happy customer wrote, “Because it is not electric there is NO noise, NO batteries to charge, NO cords, NO risk or injury!!!” It’s also easy to empty—simply press on both ends of the dust bin and empty the contents into the trash. As an added bonus, the sweeper comes with a special cleaning comb for removing any hair that gets stuck on the bristles.
The sweeper’s compact size — it measures 9.4 by 6.5 by 47 inches and weighs just 3.14 pounds — makes it easy to get into small spaces, clean under furniture, and tote between rooms. One reviewer who bought the sweeper for her elderly aunt said, “my Aunt loves this because it is light and easy to use and she is familiar with the reliable Fuller Brush brand from many years ago.” Other reviewers agreed, reporting that the Fuller Brush’s small size and easy steering are helpful for those with disabilities.
You’ll also be cleaning in style with this cute sweeper. Since Fuller has been around for over 100 years, its products have an adorable retro look. The sweeper comes in a variety of bright colors — our favorites are pink and fresh mint — that will bring a fun pop of color to your kitchen.
Take it from this glowing review: “You will love this brushuum! (JUST made that up). It will never not amaze you when you are done with it. You’ll be humming away zip-zippin that little guy around like a champ.” An easy clean for just $80? Yes, please!
