Now you're ready to refill the bottle with your cleaner of choice. Vinegar and Water, Pine-sol, or anything else you may want to clean your floors wit...
In this, my first instructable, I'll show you how to remove that pesky cap on your swiffer wet-jet bottle that makes it impossible to refill and causes you to buy their overpriced solution. All you'll need is a pair of fingernail/toenail clippers and a pot of boiling watter (and the bottle of course).
In a small pot, bring just enough water to cover the cap to a boil. Once you've brought it to a boil, place the bottle, cap first, into the water. After about a minute and a half, remove the bottle from the water, and give the cap a good, hard twist. It should pop right off as the boiling water will have softened the plastic cap.
Step 2: Making the Cap PERMANENTLY Removeable.
When you get the cap off, you'll see that it has a number of prongs which cause it to catch on the bottle. With a pair of finger nail clippers, remove these prongs. You could also use an exacto knife, or even a razor blade, but I had a pair of clippers sitting around when I thought about doing this.
Step 3: Refill the Bottle
Now you're ready to refill the bottle with your cleaner of choice. Vinegar and Water, Pine-sol, or anything else you may want to clean your floors with. Place the cap back on the bottle firmly and you're good to go.
