This probably sounds silly, since it doesn’t cost much to buy a refill for a sponge mop. But my local grocery store didn’t have the right one! I didn’t realize until I got home that the one I bought had a new design and didn’t fit my mop. I have the Libman sponge mop, and I bought the Libman sponge mop refill. But I didn’t read the part that said, “new design!”
Anyway, I was in a cleaning mood and didn’t want to stop and run out to find the right refill. Believe me, I don’t want to get sidetracked when I’m in a cleaning mood because it doesn’t happen as often as it should. 🙂
So, I got the bright idea to take the old mop sponge and attach it to the new mop sponge. After all, I have a glue gun! It’s kind of like the duct tape for crafters, there are so many things you can do with hot glue.
Below are photos of the steps I took in cutting and gluing the mop. I didn’t actually show the gluing part because I needed two hands and couldn’t take the photo at the same time. But, well, chances are if you’re reading this you know how to use a glue gun. If not, take a look at the YouTube video below.
|As you can see from the photo above, the old design slides on, and the new design snaps on.|
LIBMAN 105 Mop Refill Scrubster Sponge for 8G790 by Libman
This is the refill I just ordered from Amazon. I prefer this one because it has the green scrubber strip. Just in case my glue job doesn’t last, I’ll have a new one on hand.
