We bought a Swiffer Bissell Steamboost Mop and it came with two of the cleaning pads for it. They smelled wonderful, but I was concerned that the solution on them may not be good for our three cats to be walking around on as well as the refill pads are kind of expensive in my opinion, especially for as often as I mop my floors.
I decided to find a more natural way to clean my floors so this is my solution for saving money and *keeping my cats safe in the long run.
First of all I needed a cloth to attach to the mop to grab up all the yuckiness. A microfiber cleaning cloth was what I decided on so off to the Dollar Tree I went and lucky enough, I got two towels for one dollar! Yep $1 yall!!!
