I used my last swiffer pad the other day ago and I refuse to buy any more. So I'm sticking it to the "Swiffer Man" and I made my own.

I just chained until it measured about 16" and sc the first row and sc through bl only the rest of the rows. I sewed little sleeves and there you have it. I used it today and it works great. Grin

I've only used it to mop the kitchen floor really. However it does pick up any little bits that I didn't get up with the broom.

It's made with Lily Sugar'n Cream Cotton Yarn so yeah I just throw it in the washer with all the other rags and stuff and it comes out just fine. A little stained up, but ready for another round.

Oh my!  What a great idea.  I seriously must make one for mine now.  Reuseable and a great scrubber I bet.

Oh please do! They work great and they help keep those pesky pads out of the landfill (and more money in your wallet!!). It's really easy and quick to make. Post pics if you can  Grin

Very cool--what are you using for cleaning fluid with this when you mop, if I may ask?

She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

sorry for the reply delay!

I got me a squirt bottle at the dollar store and mixed pine-sol (label it!) with water and squirt the floor before I "scrub". Now it only takes a few minutes to do the floor!! Grin Grin Grin
