Does the standard Swiffer sweeper hurt dogs if they lick the floor?

I’ve been using the standard sweeper made by Swiffer on the floors of my apartment and recently noticed my small pug dog licking the floors. I usually catch him and get him to stop, but I was just wondering if there are chemicals in the Swiffer pads that might be harmful to him?

I thought I heard of something along these lines when Swiffer first came out, turns out to be urban legend.

The dry ones, no. It’s a glorified dust cloth.

It’s always possible for cleansers/chemicals to be harmful to animals. Always use caution.
