Step 1: Gather Materials

Its time to gather your materials. Most of these things are  around the house items.

   Old shoes or slippers
   Plastic Tube
   2 Water bottles with caps
   2 Water bottle caps
   Rags (enough to cover both shoes + extra)
   Small knife
   Duct tape
   Hot glue gun + glue
   Floor cleaner (I use Mrs. Meyers)

Step 2: Modding the Water Bottles

In this step we will be creating what will become the sprayer. We wiil reshape, and strengthen the bottle, and attach the tube.

For this step you will need:

   Duct Tape
   Hot Glue Gun + Glue

First reshape the bottle in to more of a rectangle (see pic. 1) Then wrap Duct tape around it so it will hold its shape. Now cut 2 5'' pieces of tube (no need to measure, it is rough, you could go as little as 3''). Next cut a hole in the end of the water bottle that does not have the cap that is a bit bigger than the tube. Insert the tube, and hot glue it in. Now when the cap is on, the only way air should be able to escape is through the tube.

Step 3: Attaching the Bottles

Now we are going to attach our bottles to our shoes.

For this step you need:

   Water Bottles
   Hot Glue Gun + Glue or Duct Tape (I used Duct Tape)

This is a simple step. Simply hot glue or tape the water bottles on to the bottom of the shoes. The cap should face the back. It is very important that the bottom is attached well.

Step 4: Finishing the Tube

Now we are going to finish every thing that has to do with the tube.

For this step you need:
   Shoe/Tube Creation
   The 2 Caps
   Hot Glue Gun + Glue

First hot glue a cap to each end tube. Now cut slits in the caps.

Step 5: Adding the Cloth

Its time to bust out the cloth, and finish the shoes.

For this step you need:

   Shoe/Tube Creation
   Hot Glue Gun + Glue or Duct Tape (I used Duct Tape)

Lay the cloth over the bottom of the shoe. Cut it out with a little space on the edges. Hot glue, or tape it to the bottom of the shoe

Step 6: Have Fun Cleaning

Clean up for spring. Put cleaner in the waterbottles, and start cleaning.
