Regarding the Swiffer "Wet Jets"; apparently, the solution used to "clean" is very harmful to animal (specifically dogs). It gets on the pads of their feet and they lick it and it's akin to antifreeze. If I can dig up the e-mail I got about it, I'll post it. I have cats so I don't take chances.
I also received the e-mail regarding the Swiffer. Being a skeptic by nature I went into www.snopes.com and checked it out. Here is what they had to say...
Claim: The Swiffer WetJet poses a general danger to household pets.
According to P&G's Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), most of the cleaning fluid used in the Swiffer WetJet system is water (somewhere between 90 and 100 percent), with propylene glycol n-propyl ether and isopropyl alcohol making up between 1 and 4 percent each, and the remainder of the solution composed of minor ingredients and preservatives.
The two most common compounds found in antifreeze and de-icing solutions are ethylene glycol and propylene glycol. The former has been identified as posing a danger to pets, but propylene glycol is much safer than ethylene glycol — it has been classified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an additive that is "generally recognized as safe" for use in food, it is found in a variety of medicines and cosmetics, and it is recommended as a safe alternative to antifreeze for pet owners. Moreover, what the Swiffer Wetjet cleaning solution contains is not propylene glycol itself, but propylene glycol n-propyl ether, an ingredient found in many, many different brands and types of household cleaning products. If this compound truly posed a significant risk of causing fatal liver damage in cats and dogs, we should be hearing about many more pet deaths associated with cleaning products other than the Swiffer WetJet.
