Swiffer Refill

Did you know that you can REFILL the Swiffer Jet refills?! 
Neither did I, but it's such exciting news!!  

I have ALWAYS hated buying the refills for these.  In fact, I hate buying them so much, that my Swiffer has sat in our garage collecting dust for the last 6 months or so. we are...another DIY :)

You'll Need:
Swiffer Solution Bottle
Your favorite cleaning solution
Pot with boiling water
Funnel (optional)
Tap Water

To start; All you do is boil a small pot of water.  
 Holding the bottom of the Swiffer bottle with a towel, submerge the tip of the bottle into the boiling water for 15 seconds.  Doesn't take much.
Once the 15 seconds is up, twist off the cap with a towel

Now to refill your bottle with solution.  I read the back of the bottle I was using.  
For floors, mine said to use 1/4c. cleaner to 1 gallon of water.  
I didn't want this to be an exact science, so using a funnel, pour the solution in up to the bottom of the label and then with water to dilute.  You'll probably have some bubble spillage.
 This solution smells so wonderful, is sooooo much cheaper than buying expensive refill bottles, AND it saves Mother Earth.  Win-Win-Win!


  1. The lid on my bottles just twist off. I love refilling mine, so much cheaper.


    1. NICE! I'm so glad they changed the design of the bottles. I love when something so simple can make our lives just a little easier!

      Thanks for commenting and keep refilling :)

    2. Fill with water and then liquid cleaner- no bubble spillage! I added a few drops of lemon essential oil as well. Thanks for this tip!

    3. Awesome tip - Thanks for sharing!
