As I had mentioned before, I love my Swiffer Wet Jet, but really suck
at keeping the soap and pad refills on hand.
So, after my success refilling my Lysol Soap Dispenser and Swiffer Bottle
from THIS post, I knew I needed Swiffer Pads.
After looking around online for a bit, I came up with the style above.
It is super simple, 4 pieces, and cost $1 for 2 pads.
Yeah, I did use the sewing machine, but it doesn't have to be perfect.
If you can sew a basic line, believe me, you can do it too!
First, I picked up an auto Shammy (or Chamois) cloth from the dollar store.
Cut the cloth base to the same size as your Swiffer Wet Jet.
Next, cut 3 strips, 2 inches wide and the length of the base pad.
Take the 3 strips and position them on the base.
One in the middle and one on either side.
Then sew them to the base by sewing right down the middle of each strip.
Now take your scissors and make a snip every inch down both sides of each strip.
Feel free to fluff them up. :)
The shammy material adheres to the velcro on the bottom of the Swiffer Wet Jet.
You don't need to sew pocket or anything!
Isn't that great!
I told you it was simple!
You can now Swiffer and then toss these guys right into the washing machine.
Make a bunch and you will always have a fresh pad ready.
I was again inspired to mop every hard surface in the house tonight.
I must really like this project.
I had no issues with the cloth moving or slipping.
Hope you like it too!
