I have had success refilling the bottle by using the turkey injector.

I was wondering about refilling the swiffer bottle today and don't have time to do the injector all of the time. I learned about the boiling water trick and tried it out. I filled a coffee cup full of hot water (my water is very hot but you are supposed to microwave it for a minute or two) and stuck the end of the bottle with cap in the water, let it sit for about 15 secs and then with a towel it twisted right off. :) Woohoo.

These are really nice to use but refill bottles are almost highway robbery. This is an easy fix and only takes a few minutes and it will work with other Non-refillable bottles similar to this.


  • Heat a cup of water in microwave approximately 2 minutes (close to a boil).
  • Take empty Wet Jet bottle and place in cup of hot water - hold top under water for about 1 minute (longer sometimes).
  • Remove bottle and immediately take oven mitt, pot holder or thick cloth and twist off cap (easy job).
  • Use clippers (toenail best) or X-acto knife to clip/cut plastic tips on inside of cap. These are what make the lid hard to remove. Your cap is now ready to use.
  • Refill your bottle with cleaner of your choice. Some people use white vinegar but others use a mild household cleaner or floor cleaner (that does not have to be rinsed).
  • Amount to use? Personal preference but usually about 1/4 cup vinegar/cleaner and then fill the bottle with water.

I would suggest you try different cleaners and maybe even milder solutions until you find what works best for you.

My Swiffer jet mop was always running out of the expensive refills. I tried to refill the bottle by drilling a hole in the end of the bottle and refilling it with my own cleaner.
