Homemade Wet Mops...

by Pam

If you really like the convenience of the Swiffer wet mops, but hate the expense of the refills -- cleaning liquid and pads -- or the chemicals in the cleaning liquid, you can have the best of both.

Here's what I do...

  1. save 2 rubber bands off of broccoli or use 2 heavy duty rubber bands

  2. fold six select-a-size paper towels over each other and attach the folded paper towels to the flat side of the mop with the rubber bands

  3. you can then mix your own cleaning liquid into a spray bottle or if you really want to pinch pennies, just take a small cup of left over dish soap after you're finished hand washing dishes and spatter it on the floor

  4. mop and throw the paper towels away Strong paper towels hold up well.

I have found if you get the multi packs of washcloths like at WalMart, they fit on the regular Swiffer. Wet them down and put them on your Swiffer and use what ever you use as a floor cleaner. Gets it cleaner than a regular mop and the swiffer pads. I use Pinesol in a bottle and dilute it.
