Swiffer WetJet Not Spraying Well

0 0EmailPrintFollow

I refilled my WetJet and now when I use it, it doesn't spray well. The solution only shoots out weakly a few inches. Did I do something wrong and is there any way to fix this?

I was going to suggest batteries but see someone already has. I want to respond to the statement that the solution is harmful...FALSE ! You can check this yourself on This is a rumor that's been going around for ages and simply isn't true. I have 4 cats and 2 dogs who are healthy living proof!

Thanks, Nancy!
Oh, boy, batteries!! Do I ever feel stupid!
I never even thought about the batteries.
I just figured because I had messed with the bottle ( I cut the threads inside the cap) I had done something wrong!

It's fine now, thanks!! LOL!

And Bonnie, the dangerous solution thing is a hoax.
If it were true, they would have to recommend that it not be used in homes with children/pets.

Be careful if using the Swifferwetjet solution--I've read that it can be very harmful to small children and pets because it contains some dangerous chemicals.

Change the batteries and make sure the bottle is in all the way.
