  1. Calculations and Alternatives
    I've seen all the "swiffer" refills that you can sew or crochet. But being the lazy person that I am, I tried something simpler. I cut a piece of fleece the same size as the purchased refill sheet and attached it to the sweeper the same way. I was AMAZED at the amount of dust & cat hair that it...

    I don't know if this has been posted before... I stumbled across a blog post this morning showing how to DIY reusable Swiffer cloths. My supermarket sells a store brand of them which are very inexpensive and I buy those (we have tile floors and no vacuum so they are a lifesaver!) but this would...

    Okay, so I'm thinking of getting something to replace my old mop&bucket. The only place I mop is my kitchen... everywhere else has carpet basically. So, what's the difference? Can one or the other be used w/some of the mop liquids I have on hand already? One more cost effective than the other...

    does anyone make their own wet jet floor cleaner? I am disabled and because of my back I can not sweep with a broom. Something about the side to side motion. But, I can use a swiffer. It's expensive for the liquid. Just wondering if someone knows how to make their own. Gail

    Just save your old fabric softener sheets, I use Snuggle, now one alone isn't quite big enough to cover the whole Swiffer, but I take two of them side by side and overlap them so it covers the whole thing, they are long enough to hook into the little slots.

    Does anyone own a swiffer wet jet? I love mine cuz it's quick. The thing I don't like is buying refill bottles... mine only last me a few cleanings. Plus the pads are expensive. So.... I ran out of the liquid and couldn't get to a store - really wanted to get floor cleaned without mop (it's a...
