Swiffer refill cloths can clean more than you might think!  Here are some tips for getting the most use from your Swiffer refill cloths.My absolute favorite cleaning product of all time is the Swiffer Sweeper Refills. They make cleaning extremely easy and they smell good, too! You can use them to clean things that you may not have realized, (which can prevent the need to spend money on multiple cleaning products). It also helps if you know where to find Swiffer coupons. Here are some tips for getting the most from your Swiffer Sweeper Refills.

How to Get the Most from Your Swiffer Refills

The Swiffer Sweeper is a combination broom and mop that is designed to make the task of cleaning floors quicker and easier. Personally, I’ve found that if you forget the mop and just use the refill cloths that they go a whole lot farther! Here are some ways I get the most from a box of Swiffer refills.

Flip it Over
Try this trick to get your floors really clean in a short amount of time. First, sweep them with a regular broom, and remove the dirt via a dustpan. Next, use a Swiffer cloth to scrub the dirtiest areas of the floor. This involves sitting on the floor.

This method will remove quite a lot of dirt and dust really quickly. When one side gets dirty, flip it over and use the other side. Use the attached rough strip to attack stubborn dirt. You end up using less Swiffer cloths than you would have if you used the Swiffer mop. You also get two times the Swiffer (since you are using the backs, too).

Clean the Bathtub
Cleaning the bathtub is a chore that few people enjoy. It goes a lot faster if you use a Swiffer refill cloth! That ring of “grime” just wipes away when you use a Swiffer cloth. In my experience, very little scrubbing is required. It is extremely effective! I’ve never had to use more than one Swiffer cloth to clean my bathtub (even it when it was really dirty). This can save the money you would have spent on a cleaning product that is designed to be used only on bathtubs.

Clean the Toilet Without Paper Towels
Obviously, you will need to continue using a toilet bowl cleaning product and a toilet brush to clean the inside of the toilet bowl. What about the outside and other parts of the toilet? Many people use a bathroom spray and plenty of paper towels to wipe away the germs and grime. Instead, use a Swiffer cloth.

Use one Swiffer cloth to wipe the top of the toilet tank, the rest of the tank, the handle, and the seat. Flip it over, and fold the dirty side into itself. Use the clean side to wipe off the outside of the toilet bowl, right down to the floor. It’s fast and easy! You won’t go through as many paper towels next time you clean the bathroom.

Use a Coupon
You can find coupons for Swiffer products on the Swiffer website. I would also recommend scanning through the coupons right here at to see if there are any for Swiffer. is another potential option.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
