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)! 🙂
