I purchased a hand towel at our local Goodwill store for $.59 for the sole purpose to make myself some homemade Swiffer wet jet pads.
I had gotten my Swiffer wet jet for free when i first started couponing but i realized the disposable pads made the mop, so not cost effective. I had seen several tutorials on making Swiffer duster pads and figured i could apply this same method and make my own wet jet pads.
So i took the hand towel and laid my wet jet on it, traced it and cut it out. I was able to get 7 pads out of 1 hand towel.
Then i did a close zig-zag stitch on the raw edges in hopes of diminishing any raveling and sewed on some velcro. Only bad part is i didn't think about how much velcro i was going to need so i only had enough to finish 4 pads. I'll get to the others later.
I got to use my pads today and they worked great! I am so happy with myself! No more buying those highly expensive pads anymore for me :D
Oh also, i don't buy the Swiffer mopping solution any more. I figured out you can open a Swiffer solution bottle and refill it with your own. Way cheaper! I had grabbed a bunch of pine sol back when it was on a great coupon deal and that is what i use. Amazing how cheap, yet convenient, mopping can be... and simple!
