Easiest way to sweep a hardwood or bare floor.
This may seem silly, butÂ
I have a hardwood floor in my kitchen. If I sweep with a broom I seem to chase dust/hair/lint everywhere, plus all the bending to use a dust pan is getting to me (recovering from a leg/foot injury). My huge heavy Kirby vacuum is too much work and weight to haul out. I have a big soft rag dust mop I use on other bare floors, but there is always too much grit or larger food particles to use that in the kitchen. I have a swiffer mop but my floor gets way too dirty for that to work; that also seems just to push dirt around rather than pick it up.
I thought of getting a simple lightweight "stick" type vacuum but am looking for a recommendation. Or maybe people here are all using something marvelous I have not thought of yet.
