      a regular-sized washcloth in place of the cleaning pad, and it worked

      wonderfully! I use an all-cotton wash cloth, and I dampen it with tap

      water before putting it on the mop (so it doesn’t need to soak up so

      much cleaner right at first). After I’m done mopping, I rinse out the

      cloth, hang it somewhere to dry, and launder it with my

      whites/dishrags/etc. And if I want to get a clean cloth halfway

      through mopping… I can! Because they’re “free”!

      The owners manual said (of course) that one MUST use their cleaning

      solution, but I decided it was well-worth a try at making my own. So,

      I took some floor cleaner* and water and re-filled the bottle of

      cleaner. It worked just as well as their “special” cleaner, and is so

      much cheaper. I used my own cleaning solution in my mop for over 4

      years, and then the handle of the mop broke (i.e. the cleaner I was

      using in it didn’t ruin it)! 🙂
