My "Thieveffer" Mop
But I was not ready for my kids to be getting out the big mop and bucket every night to clean just 2 rooms just yet. I saved a container that the Swiffer wet refills come in and I added 1/2 a capful of Thieves Household Cleaner to half of the container filled with water. After mixing it around I grabbed all the rags around the house that were 10x10 or bigger and added them to the container.
After a month of the switch I can honestly say I'm glad I made the switch. The floor gets just as clean as it did with the 3 Swiffer wet sheets we use to use every night, thieves smells like gingerbread so my house smells yummy and we are not throwing money in the trash can every night. I would purchase the Swiffer pads at our Wholesale store at a cost of $15.47 for 60, so .26 cents for each sheet. My kids used 3 sheets every night for the 2 rooms, so one night was costing us .78 cents and when we were done those went in the trashcan to go clog up our landfill. Thieves Household Cleaner cost me $22.00 Wholesale, so approx .64 cents a capful, its concentrated so a little goes along way. I only use 1/2 a capful so lets say .32 cents for one of my swiffer containers filled halfway with water, I usually add 12 rags to the container, sometimes more. So 12 rags of my cleaner ( 3 rags used each night for 4 nights ) cost me .32 cents, the floors get cleaned and nothing gets thrown in the trash ( I put them in our normal wash ) compared to $3.12 for the 4 nights of Swiffer wet pads that get thrown in the trash when we are done.
Think about it this way, old way cost us $23.40 a month and the new way cost us $2.40 a month. I think I'll stick with the Thieves Household Cleaner.
