Thanks Thriftyfun! I have mastered the art of unclogging Swiffer Wet Jets. First, rise off the jets with hot water and stick a pin up into each jet. I used a quilting pin because they are thin and about 1.5 inches long and have a nice round head so it's easy to pull it in and out. Then I replaced all four AA batteries. The Swiffer Wet Jet requires fresh batteries. (Still cheaper than paying someone else to mop my floor.) Now both of my Wet Jets work like new. I had bought the second one before accepting that this problem required some research.

I t's the button that does not work on mine. Suddenly just stopped. I have changed batteries, unclogged, etc. I think this is a different problem but one I had before. Expensive iff you have to keep replacing.

I have a Swiffer that is about 6 months old, but one sprayer does not work. Nothing comes out of the spray hole. What can be done? Is there a way to clean the spray nozzles?

You could carefully soak that part of the swiffer in hot water (with bottle unattached) and that might dissolve the buildup inside the sprayer. Another idea is to carefully take a needle to try and clean out the sprayer hole.

How do I clean a plugged nozzle on a Clorox Ready/Swiffer mop?

I suggest soaking it in hot water. It pops out easily enough and let it sit in the warm/hot water for a bit, take it out, wipe it down, you maybe have to put a toothpick in there to get out the loosened up crud but it's easy.

Good luck
