Refilling The Wet Jet Solution

A few years ago, my friend Rick introduced me to the Swiffer Wet Jet.  He has since moved on to bigger and better cleaning devices, but I still have my Wet Jet, which has been a Dry Jet since I refuse to pay the $ for the refill bottle.  Especially since my boys think cleaning with it is fun.  Then, a couple days ago I received the following question from Elaine:  Any idea how to refill the bottle of cleaning solution for the Swiffer Wet Jet? To which I answered that I was pretty sure it took a scientist to get the bottle open, and scientist I am not!   I didn't know the bottle was impossible to refill when I bought the cleaning mechanism.  HOWEVER, it's NOT impossible as I've just discovered!!!  Thanks to Elaine, for prompted me to search this out on the internet!  Thank goodness for YouTube!  I'm SO EXCITED to let you in on the  secret - I tried it yesterday, following this youtube video and it worked like a charm.  Okay, so my hubby got the lid off, since I had issues.  But it worked. :)

Okay yeah, so in a nutshell:  boil water on the stove, hold bottle (cap) upside down in boiling water for a few seconds, then using a towel, turn cap off and refill with your own - much cheaper - cleaning solution!!
