Unfortunately plastic convenience products often are designed to be replaced, not fixed :-(. That said, if you call Swiffer customer service they might send you a whole new unit to preserve loyalty: 1-800-214-8734. Good luck!

Has anyone tried the new Swiffer Wetjet Pads? I don't like them. They no longer have those flaps that hold the small pieces of dirt that missed when you were sweeping. If you use the pad once and put the mop down for a while, that dirt is deposited back on the next floor you clean. Does anyone know where I can find the old style pads?

If you find the old pads can you post it here? The new ones STINK! I emailed Swiffer tonight and told them so.

I went to their website when I complained and they sent me a coupon for any Swiffer product free. I it was worth $6. I bought some of their dusters because I would not buy the new pads if they were free.


Maybe if they get enough feedback they will bring back the old ones.

Don't they have "real" people test these items. A few homemakers could have told them they were lousy within a day.

I'm so glad to find out I'm not the only one who dislikes the new Swiffer pads. I also e-mailed the company with a complaint about them. They had such a good product with the old pads; they had cuffs to hold in all the hair and dirt and were so much more absorbant. The new pads just don't do the job. I've gone back to my old trusty mop. Please let P&G know if you dislike the new pads. Maybe they will get the message and go back to the old ones!

I have seen reusable washable pads on ebay. I have a full box so I haven't ordered them yet. Anybody tried them?

We did use a lot of the Swiffer Wetjet mops in our company until the new pads came out. We have found that the new pads are a waste of time and we will no longer purchase Swiffer products until the old Pad is back on the market.

Yes, I've tried the new pads. They are bad! They don't pick up anything and just use streaks all over my floor. I can't find any information on the old pads or the switch to the new ones, so I won't be using swiffer anymore.

wow. I completely agree.

The new pads suck.

I called the company and they were clueless. Interested, but said that they had heard no feeback yet.


Maybe we should email them these comments.

I guess nobody has found the old pads anywhere.

I couldn't agree more. The new pads are awful. I want to clean my floor, not move the dirt around. What was P&G thinking, and what fools were testing these new pads. AWFUL!!!

I like the ease of using the Swiffer Mop but it left my floor sticky when done and my cat seemed to get sick after licking spilled milk off of the same floor.

Has any one had similar problems with one? Has anyone tried to use other cleaning fluid in the bottle, like vinegar water or anything like that? I know the company states not to use any other cleaning solution but maybe that is just not to lose money.


I would like to use something more pet friendly. The floor was completely dry when my cat lapped up the milk and then got sick. I'm not saying this product caused my cat to become ill but he got sick right after the floor was mopped with it, the first and only time I tried this new mop. I did notice the floor seemed sticky but figured it would be fine when dry.

I thought I was going crazy?!
A friend of mine moved a while back and gave me her swiffer wetjet and the pads that she had left. I loved it so much that when the pads ran out, I decided it was worth the cost to replace them. I haven't been able to find them anywhere. I figured my friend must have had some secret store she bought them at.


I am going right now to P&G's website to complain! RIDICULOUS! Why fix something that's not broken! The new pads are TERRIBLE!

I am so glad I finally found people with the same complaints as me. Where can we get the old ones?? As far as I'm concerned, until I hear the old ones are back, I'm ALL Done with Swiffer Wet Jet.

I think the old ones were too effective and they actually wanted to decrease the effectiveness so we would have to use more pads and buy more often. Any idiot could see how this was not an improvement at all. Bye bye swiffer. I don't respect companies like that.

I think the company decided to rip us all off even more by making a junkie pad. I have decided not to use the Swiffer anymore. As soon as the pads I have are used, I will throw it away.


Too bad . It was actually not such a bad (although not cost efficient) product.

I believe there may be several models so you may need your model number.
This may not be an easy task as it looks like Swifter does not sell replacement parts but things change so you might try emailing (or chat online) just in case they have added parts to their site:

You can find online sites that indicate they sell parts but I could only find one that actually sells items for Swifter. I believe the parts are 'generic' but these may be all you can buy.

It's possible that Sears parts can order parts so you might give them a call:

Here are some tips about using a Swifter Jet Mop;
DIY cleaning solution:
1 cup white vinegar. 1 cup water. 3-5 drops dish soap.

I know the Swiffers are cheap to buy, but if they break where do you get parts for them? The one I have broke the first time it was used.

If it broke the first time I used it, I would take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one.

The head on our Swiffer broke off. I cannot find a place to ask Swiffer about this, too busy with sales pitches. The only number on it is
53653148010000, now the last three (3) numbers are a guess, I could not read it clearly.Replacement Head for a Swiffer Wet Mop - broken mop


The head is the part that goes on the floor with the cleaning pad.

We use an old wash cloth on the tile floor, which does a great job. I am guessing that the prime user uses a good bit of pressure. The head is attached by expressing the clips on the metal part that plug into that plastic part on the head. Any help. Sort of please.

attempted repairAny suggestions to repair it well? Anyone else have this issue? Duct tape and Popsicle sticks don't fix everything. This seems a common problem when switching from a mop, to push into handle to work on a stubborn spot.

It broke during first use within a few moments of use. The junction of the handle to stick has the thinnest collar of plastic on the entire product.
Back to the mop and bucket.
