A few years ago I bought a Swiffer Wet Jet Cleaner. I got some use out of it but I didn't much care for the fact you can only get one unit cleaning solution. It's $6-7 for a new bottle. I'm cheap. I love to refill things. Plus the cleaning pads are another $6!
I crochet, darnit, certainly I could figure something out to use that thing again. I've had it hanging around the house, moved it for 5 year or more. Certainly I can use that for something.
Then I found it. A free crochet pattern for the cleaning pads to fit a swiffer. Oh sure I've seen it online before but this time, this time I was going to make it! I'm even going to point out the pattern I used so you can use it as well. Linda Permann wrote up a pattern and it is on makezine.
Ah but then it leaves me buying that stupid solution. Oh wait, but it doesn't! How to remove the cap on a Swiffer Wet Jet Cleaner!?!? YES! There it was, the answer! hee hee!
So tonight I spent my time making the cleaning pad and taking the top from the cleaner to wash and refill it with hot water and white vinegar. I did a quick clean on the roughly 550 sq ft of kitchen, dining room and hall. Tomorrow I will do the bathrooms and anything else I can think of. Maybe I'll redo the kitchen. LOL I'm excited! Is that lame? :p It was great though and I've even thought about making a dusting glove. Yeah. I'm lame. LOL
