Hi. This is my first Instructable. This is very low-tech and very humble. Those of you (Instructabelers....Instructabilians...Instructabillys?).. ..that do these high-tech genius projects, man, you guys are so much cooler than I. I mostly like to find minute ways to make my life easier. I'm super cheap and lazy, and obsessive about arranging and automating my life as much as possible so I don't actually have to be present. So if I do any more of these, it'll probably be along those lines.
This particular project was for me just filling a need. I like my Wet-Jet but I hate buying the disposable pads all the time. At about a buck a piece, cleaning the floor starts looking expensive to me. (I have 2 young children) There doesn't seem to be a generic brand of the pads that I've seen, and some other mop brands do make reusable pads but they're stupid-expensive too, they don't really fit the Swiffer, and the ones I've tried don't even work that great in my opinion. So I set out to make my own. A few weeks of supply hunting and experimentation and we have a winner!
Step 1: Supplies
1. A Swiffer Wet Jet
2. some washcloth-sized rags
3. dish-washing cloths with scrubbing mesh on at least one side.
4. two "binder clips" (I had to look up what those things were called)
cost: a few dollars at most. I found a 3 pack of the mesh dish towels at a discount store for $2 and teh rest of the stuff I had around the house already.
