Love your Swiffer Wet Jet? Me too. Since my entire downstairs is laminate flooring, linoleum or tile, I use this Swiffer product almost every day. While I find this cleaning gadget to be very effective, the disposable pads and cleaning solution is not cheap. Therefore, I want to get the most for my money. This article will offer some tips and suggestions on how to get the absolute most for your money with the Swiffer Wet Jet.
Keep The Velcro Strips Free Of Dog Hair And Dust.
The Velcro strips that hold the disposable mopping pad in place can become coated with dust, debris and dog hair if you are a pet owner. Thoroughly clean the Velcro strips before every third or fourth use of the cleaning gadget. When the Velcro is covered with debris and pet hair, the disposable cleaning pads do not stick as well. This can result in a loose grip of the cleaning pad and even having the pad slip off altogether while mopping the floor. This can affect how clean the floors get and therefore a waste of product.
Keep The Batteries Fresh.
Naturally, the batteries in your Swiffer Wet Jet run down and need to be replaced. At the end of the batteries’ life, the cleaning solution does not get sprayed on the floor forcefully. It more or less dribbles out, which can leave the floors streaky and messy. Replacing the batteries before they get down to their lowest level will ensure a spic and span floor every time.
Use Up Every Last Bit Of Cleaning Solution.
Once the bottle of Swiffer Wet Jet Cleaning Solution gets down to it’s last two inches or so, the solution does not spray from the Wet Jet easily. Instead of repeatedly pressing down the button to spray the product in fits and starts, remove the bottle from the contraption. Use a scissor or sharp knife to widen the hole on the top of the bottle. Tip the bottle to apply the cleaning solution directly onto the floor and then mop with the disposable pad as usual.
Turn The Disposable Cleaning Pad Around Midway Through Your Cleaning Session.
The top of the cleaning pad generally gets dirtier than the bottom, while mopping the floor. When the mopping pad gets darkened at the top with the solution and the dust and dirt it picked up from the floor, don’t toss it just wet. Take the pad off and then reposition it with the top of the pad now on the bottom Velcro strip. You will get several more feet of floor cleaned using this method, therefore cutting down on the number of disposable mopping pads you use in a week or two.
Buddy Up With A Friend To Buy Swiffer Wet Jet Supplies In Bulk.
If you have a friend who loves this cleaning gadget as much as you do, get together to keep yourselves in stock and save some money too. Warehouse and Grocery Clubs sell triple packs of the cleaning solution and over sized boxes of the disposable cleaning pads. Do the math before you commit yourself, but generally speaking, you both should save a few dollars by going in together on bulk quantities of the cleaning solution and mopping pads.
