I have a Swiffer Wet Jet and love it. The problem is, it is not exactly easy on my frugal budget. Still, the ease of use combined with my stubbornness has (so far) caused me keep using the product.
The other day I was thinking there had to be a way to reuse the solution containers so I could use my own (cheaper) cleaning solution instead of the expensive kind made by Swiffer. I googled it in hopes of finding a solution - and, alas, there is one! You can read it here, or if you prefer videos there is one here.
As for the pads... I have been reading up on this too. I have seen suggestions ranging from using old washcloths to using old socks. Either option lets you wash and reuse, so that is great from a money-saving perspective. I am eager to test out these solutions and will let you know how they work out.
Do you have any suggestions for making your own Swiffer Wet Jet pads?
