Toolin’ Up Tuesday: Swiffer Wetjet

Posted By Jessica Fisher On July 15, 2008 @ 6:20 am In Cleaning,Toolin' Up Tuesday | 13 Comments

[4]For Clean Sweep week, I thought I’d share one of our favorite cleaning tools: the Swiffer Wetjet [5]. Love it! Love it!

It’s basically a mop with a self-contained dispenser of floor cleaner. It has a wonderful button that you push that automatically shoots cleaner where you need it.

But, I must admit that we’ve “doctored” our Wetjet [5] a little bit, kind of like painting custom pin stripes and flames on your cute red convertible. It was pretty sweet as it was, but now it’s suped up a bit.

First, FishPapa reinforced the handle with some duct tape. This has strengthened it for all kinds of duty. Second, instead of buying the disposable cleaning pads, we use a washable mop head with velcro. FishPapa wisely attached super-heavy duty velcro to the swiffer base. The mop head stays on well, but it can be easily removed for washing. [6]

Now that our eldest FishBoy is 11, he has graduated to a new level of chores. Swabbing the decks is now one of his weekly duties, and he does a great job keeping our wood floors shipshape. The Swiffer [5] helps him do that.

What “thing” makes life easier at your house? Write about it on your blog and then come back here and share your link in the comments section. If you don’t have a blog, that’s okay, just tell us about it in the comments section.
