When this dust mop pad gets dirty.. .you just throw it away! (Apr, 1967)

I guess the Swiffer wasn’t all that original.

When this dust mop pad gets dirty.. .you just throw it away!

The new Bissell Disposable Dust Mop

The secret? … a spun cellulose pad which picks up even elusive threads and hair. Picks up dirt, doesn’t just push it around, like old-fashioned dust mops. And when one side of the pad gets dirty, you just turn it over, use it again… then, throw it away.

The Bissell Disposable Dust Mop is lightweight, too.

Use it on walls, ceilings, doorframes, around windows, any job above floor level. You get two refill pads with your dust mop and additional refills, three to a pack, are available. Pick up dust and dirt, don’t just push it around . . . with the new Bissell Disposable Dust Mop.

    Looks exactly like the Swiffer. Wonder if its from the same company.

    It isn’t: Swiffer is a Proctor & Gamble company, while Bissell is owned by the Bissell family.

    There isn’t too much that is original anymore.
