    ...fix. I would suggest, if the Swiffer handle screws into the mop head with a standard knuckle tread, seeing if you can buy a regular metal mop handle, assuming the mop head and other parts are still functional.

      going from the spray button to the mop sprayer on the bottom. It's the top, above the metal part that snapped, where it curves to grip it. Essentially we're going to have to replace it. Right now duct tape is holding it together (there's a long flat piece that rests against the metal) until we can afford to do so. Otherwise I'll have to go with the hospital style mop we have, though that's harder for me to use and will dry slower because it's more wet.
