    Has anyone thought about making your own Fliq pads?
    I've been using a 14" Excelerator and I find it slightly too big for me as I've been using a 12" squeegee for years now.
    There are 12" Liquidator channels but no 12" Fliq pads as far as I know.
    I've ordered some replacement Fliq clips which I'm hoping to make as 12" pad somehow.

    I was thinking that you could have a base part that is in the shape of the Fliq pads but have velcro on it instead of the mop and then a mop strip with velcro on as well.
    Then you can replace it with different types.

    Any thoughts?

    We have made and been using this DIY scrubbing pad holder for many years now, still using the same one as in the video.
    It allows you to change your pads in seconds.

    I make my own, and there are others who do too. Chris Dawber (Wagga) has made many vids on window cleaning modifications including wash pads (scrubbers), as H-man has too.

    Well why doesn't any manufactures make a clip on scrubber pad holder similar to the one in the video??
    This way you can use any type of scrubbing pad be it bought one or your own DIY one.
