ATLANTA -- Karen McCrea's home is essentially spotless, even with her dog Skyler around.

However, between her broom, dustpan and vacuum, it becomes a bit difficult. To help her, she's willing to try the newest version of the Swivel Sweeper.

"What intrigues me is that you can use it on floors or on the carpet, because that's the hard part," McCrea says.

She starts by trying to use it on the carpet.

"Carpet, it picks up stuff but doesn't really do any deep cleaning as a regular vacuum would," she says. "But that's not what I think I would use it for."

Then she tries the Swivel Sweeper on the hardwood floor.

"It maneuvers really well. I might even like it better on the hardwood," she says.

The Swivel Sweeper has an elbow join that allows it to go under furniture. "That's nice, because a lot of stuff gets under here," McCrea says.

The worst part is cleaning it out. Other than that, McCrea likes it.

"It retails for $40, which is about right," she says. "I'm going to give it two thumbs up."
