How to Attach Cleaning Pad to Swiffer Wetjet (Wetjet-Specific Pad)


Are you wondering how to attach a cleaning pad to your Swiffer Wet Jet? You’re in the right place! In this step-by-step guide, we’ll walk you through the process to ensure a secure attachment and a seamless cleaning experience. Let’s get started!

Choosing the Right Cleaning Pad

Before we start, it’s important to select the correct cleaning pad. For the Swiffer Wet Jet, you need to choose the Wet Jet pad, not the wet pad. The wet pad is designed for the traditional Swiffer, while the Wet Jet pad is specifically made for the Swiffer Wet Jet.

Wet Jet pads are usually purple in color, and the packaging will clearly state “Wet Jet pad” on it. Make sure you have the right pad before proceeding.

Identifying the Two Sides of the Pad

Now that you have the correct cleaning pad, let’s get familiar with its two sides. On one side, you’ll notice a colorful line, while on the other there will be two Velcro-like attachment points. When attaching the pad to your Swiffer Wet Jet, you’ll want to work with the side that has the two attachment points.

Attaching the Cleaning Pad to the Swiffer Wet Jet

With the attachment points facing you, grab your Swiffer Wet Jet. Here, you’ll see little lines on each side of the mop head. Align the two Velcro-like lines on the cleaning pad with the lines on the Swiffer mop head.

Next, press the attachment points firmly onto the mop head. Although there is no latch mechanism, the Velcro-like material ensures a secure connection between the pad and the mop head. Give it a gentle tug to make sure it’s fastened securely.

With the cleaning pad attached, ensure the colorful line is facing down towards the floor, as this part of the pad is meant for scrubbing.

Cleaning with Your Swiffer Wet Jet

You’re all set to start cleaning with your Swiffer Wet Jet! The securely attached cleaning pad won’t fall off during use, making your floor cleaning experience a breeze.

Removing the Used Cleaning Pad

When you’re done cleaning and it’s time to remove the used cleaning pad, simply pull it straight off the mop head. You can then dispose of it in the trash or recycle if possible.


And that’s it! By following this guide, you now know how to properly attach and remove cleaning pads to and from your Swiffer Wet Jet. Happy cleaning!
