Look Ma No Patterns has this tutorial for making swiffer wet jet pads.
I actually have made many of these out of fleece. A few other suggestions if you don't really sew:

2) Cut old cloth baby diapers in half. They are really absorbent and work great.

I know just refill it with water or water and vinegar. I love the convenience, even if it does use batteries (I do use rechargeables).
