Introduction: Hack Your Swiffer Sweeper. Weep Swiffer CEO , Weep.

I used some trash , a lighter and a stick to make a refueling cap for my Swiffer Sweeper's cleaning juice tank.

Step 1: The Supplies and Logic of Construction.

The idea is simple , put a bottle cap on the rear of your Swiffer's swifferific cleaning juice tank.
I used a lighter to melt a whole in the bottom and then used a mettle rod to widen it.
Then I cut out a cap from a two liter bottle (ALL HAIL THE METRIC SYSTEM!!!!) and inserted it into the prepared hole. Then I sealed it with Elmer's Stix's ALL , which is suspiciously similar to silicone gasket maker but use what ever you have that will make a seal.

Swiffer's patented juice tank Capered from la Basura $0

Fire Stolen from the Gods $0

Bottle Cap and throat Snatched from the innocent $0

Silicone gasket maker , Mommy got it for me, 2 Kisses and a hug

Rod and or stick ,Recent Pillage, $0

Sticken it to the man !!! Priceless.

    So.. are those things not supposed to be re-fillable? if not, this is a handy idea.

    Yeah, the cap that comes on them is permanently attatched. You know how soda bottle have that ring that stays with the bottle when you take the cap off, but is attatched at a dozen or so points to the cap when its sealed? well, the cap on this is attatch al the way around, no easy to break perforations. The liquid comes out through a syringe-like needle that pokes through the rubber top of the cap. You can also just cut that ring from the cap, which is what I've done in the past.

    Kudo for explaining that so clearly. So If I just carefully cut around the "tamper evident"-like lower ring with a knife, it should just screw off. Clever.

    Yup, thats right. Just cut the ring off just below the "shoulder" where it bulges out. its pretty easy to cut through with a utility knife. Instant, perfectly sealed AND refillable swiffer. :-)


    YES! My craft knife didn't do it, but a serrated knife sawed through it finally and it's working great. I use all natural cleaning solutions because I'm chemically sensitive and that perfumed poison makes me stop breathing, so this is AWESOME. Now to make some reusable pads. :) Thanks Andrew!

    I also took the cap off with a pair of vise grips the first time, and diluted the cleaner that was in it.  it's about more than just money.  The cleaner inside there is so strong that it leaves a soapy residue on the floor that actualy atracts more dirt.  My floors stayed cleaner longer when i diluted it about 20 parts water to one part solution.  And it's easy to make some reusable pads to go on it.

    I refill my swiffer mop all the time with much less work by doing this:

    1. Get a pair of channel-lock pliers.
    2. Adjust the pliers to the width of the bottle cap so that you won't crush it when you apply pressure.
    3. Twist off the cap.
    4. Fill the bottle with floor cleaner.
    5. Replace the cap.

    The cap will screw back on without a problem and you won't need the pliers to remove it the next time.

    Awsome idea. Off to make my own. Thanks for the instructions.

    Uhm, hate to break your bubble, but just soak the top of the cap off the bottle for less than a minute in hot water and it screws right off so you can add your own fill. No need to cut & paste and make a mess of it. FYI DIY

    I think diluted 409 would work just as good as swiffer juice.
