I love my swiffer but can't stand the toxic wet sheets, I'd love to use bronners or water and vinegar but Can't figure out what to use for the sheets. Any ideas for what holds up better than paper towels?
Do you knit? I am currently making myself a couple of these :<br><br><a href="http://hakucho.blogspot.com/2006/09/ball-band-mop-cover-pattern.html" target="_blank">http://hakucho.blogspot.com/2006/09/...r-pattern.html</a><br><br>
To make it big enough for a swiffer wetjet, you have to make some pattern mods found here (scroll down):<br><a href="http://dicombobulationnotes.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2006-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-05%3A00&updated-max=2007-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-05%3A00&max-results=50" target="_blank">http://dicombobulationnotes.blogspot...max-results=50</a><br><br>
It's almost done, so I'll post pics when I finish. I was actually coming to start a thread about combining crafting and ecologically-mindful home management.
I use washclothes, folded in half and secured with two thick rubber bands. For the wet solution I use a spray bottle and spray down the whole livingroom (I have terrazo) and then go back with a wet washcloth and mop it up.
I have the clorox ready-mop which someone gave me. After I used up all the cleaning solution that came with the bottle and all the pads I filled the bottle with vinegar/water/TTO and I use some terry cloth pads which I can cram down into those little slots for the paper pads. They stay on pretty well. I've also used some microfiber clothes before. It works really well. Better than the paper pads.<br><br>
I used the same ready mop for two years and just had to buy a new one because the spayer stopped working.
