So here's an idea if you want to save some money on all those refills!
1. Dunk the bottle cap in hot water for about 90 seconds to soften the plastic.
2. Twist off the cap with a good, hard twist.
3. Then clip off the little locking tabs with nail clippers (or exacto knife, or razor blade).
4. Now you have a plain old refillable bottle you can refill with your own cleaning solution - vinegar and water, Pine-sol, Nature Clean or anything else you like.
5. Replace the cap back on the bottle firmly and you're ready to clean.

-- How to remove that pesky cap on your Swiffer Wet-Jet bottle making it impossible to refill, and causes you to buy their overpriced solution.
All you'll need is a pair of fingernail/toenail clippers and a pot of boiling water (and the bottle of course).
