I thought I'd try a generic brand of the pads that attach to the Swiffer cleaner (the one with the cleaner in the bottle that attaches to the handle). Well, don't. They don't stay on. Where the velcro is on the Swiffer, is not where they are on the generic ones, at least not the ones I got.
My advice: if you do want to try a generic pad, make sure the strips go length-wise and not on the short ends. That's where I went wrong. Other than that, I LOVE my Swiffer Mop!

My opinion, buy the ones from Swiffer. Also, I absolutely LOVE my Swiffer Mop!
I use a dry Swiffer cloth on my Swiffer mop, and spray it with window cleaner to clean the outside windows; that way I don't have to use a ladder to reach them. Also can be used to clean inside windows easier without moving furniture to get at them!
I like to crochet so I crocheted a mop head with peaches and cream thread to fit over the swiffer mop head then I thread elastic through the crocheted mop so it fits over the top of the mop. When I mop I spray the floor with white vinegar and water. Then mop with my homemade mop head.
When I'm finished I take off the mop head throw it in the wash and have a clean mop head to start with next time. I found it more ecological and I like the mop head with the nubs from crocheting cleans better. I use a mix of vinegar and 1/2 c. + 1 gallon water put in spray bottle.
