Homemade Wet Mops...
(Texas, United States)
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...
- save 2 rubber bands off of broccoli or use 2 heavy duty rubber bands
- 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
- 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
- mop and throw the paper towels away Strong paper towels hold up well.
