yeah, it's been awhile...

I feel like half my posts are me apologizing for being gone for so long. You would hate to live in my head- it is a guilty, guilty place and it is turning this lovely blog into a guilty place so from now on no more pressure but just writing whenever I can. yay!!
Now onto the guilt for my swiffer wet jet... I went to the WalMart the other day (don't look at me like that- we don't have a febric store anywhere near us so I have to go there sometimes for fabric and other crafty related items.) Anyhoodle, I usually just keep my head down to avoid temptation of unnecessary purchases but this particular trip I couldn't avoid the swiffer wet jet that was on sale. Big time hippy fail!!!
Alright, no problem- I have a fix on how to hippify my new mop. Weeee! Apparently, many people on the internets have faced this same conundrum. Here's the sitch (as in situation): 1.) Order some homemade cloth pads from etsy (check them out here) 2.) figure out how to "green" up the cleaning solution and I found a great article here 3.) and last but not least use my awesome rechargeable batteries.
Okay, so I know that I had a giant fail but I think I made up for it a little and that is a giant hippy win! And that is so great because I lurve my wet jet and it would be so sad if I couldn't use it but now I can because it looks so cute with its new homemade pads and little corked bottle filled with white vinegar. Yay!

  1. Awesome, thanks for this info. My girlfriend said we have to get a swiffer and I'm telling her "no way." Well now we have a compromise.
