Swiffer Wetjet Multi-Purpose CleanerDo you use a Swiffer Wetjet? I've thought about them, but I am not willing to pay for the constant refills - I'm too cheap frugal for that.

So here's an idea if you want to save some money on all those refills!

1. Dunk the bottle cap in hot water for about 90 seconds to soften the plastic.

2. Twist off the cap with a good, hard twist.

3. Then clip off the little locking tabs with nail clippers (or exacto knife, or razor blade).

4. Now you have a plain old refillable bottle that you can refill with your own cleaning solution - vinegar and water, Pine-sol, Nature Clean or anything else you like.

5. Replace the cap back on the bottle firmly and you're ready to clean.

All you'll need is a pair of fingernail/toenail clippers and a pot of boiling water (and the bottle of course).
