I read here a few years ago, how to make up that pricey wet jet fluid.
Does anyone have the recipe handy? Thanking you very much in advance.
I usually use the well recommended fibre-mop also recommended here
which I love, but it is the dry time of year here and it is
particularly dry now and we are on water catchment. I don't want to
use my fabulous mop because I don't want to waste water before the
rainy season returns.
I appreciate your help a great deal and could offer you help if you
ever want to know abut coffee farming, or Kona, Hawaii or anything
along those lines:).
roast beans to Kona to reply

No need for special recipes. I use whatever I'd normally use mixed in
a bucket. In my case, that's white vinegar & water, about 2-4 ounces
of vinegar per gallon of water. (roughly, 60-120ml per 4 liters).
I've also used Murphy's oil soap/water, also a weak ammonia/water
I like the vinegar the best, gets most everything and doesn't usually
doesn't need rinsed. Works on both wood and vinyl.
I've always bought the stuff for hardwood floors, however your Murphy's Oil
Soap recipe is intriguing. My question is, how do you get it into the
specially fitted bottles made for the Swiffer? It's not a screw off type
lid I don't believe.
It's threaded like any other lid, but there's one-way teeth inside the
flat band along the bottom edge of thecap. They are designed to allow
the lid to spin in one direction only -- on, but not off. Sort of like
the way some pill bottles have one way teeth. Sneaky way to keep you
buying the overpriced refill bottles, eh?
I used a combination of an exacto blade & heavy-duty kitchen shears to
cut off that band of teeth. Now the cap spins on and off just like any
other.It's really tough to cut, so be careful.This is one of the first
things I did when I got my mop. It annoyed me that I paid for this
gadget and couldn't use the cleaning mix I felt worked best.
Other people have just put a small hole on the bottom of the bottle
(the bottom faces up when the bottle is mounted on the cleaner).
They've made a hole just big enough for a funnel, then put a cork in
it. I'm guessing they refill the bottle right on the mop, rather than
refill thru the cap opening like I do.
A couple other ideas I came across was to use old diapers or those new
fangled microfiber cloths instead of the pads they sell. I've used old
terrycloth towels, cause that's what I happen to have around.
I use the Clorox mop and it easily comes off. I mixed pinesol and water and
it worked real good on my kitchen tile floor. It has a very good sprayer.
Half the time, I can't get the swiffer bottle to settle in and flow good.
