    Re: A free day.

    I think that the word "wipe" and " clean" are the same meaning. " Turn on/off and switch on/off are also the same meaning. So in above paragraph, could they replace each other?

    There's some overlap, but they're not the same.

    The basic meaning is the same, but one is more natural than the other in certain situations. Here, I find "turn on the vacuum cleaner/hoover" more natural than "switch on the vacuum cleaner/hoover".
