I talked about the cost of Swiffer cloths in an earlier post. Looking for ways to save money I cut up an old bath towel and made several cloths that worked wonderful... but, they did not hold properly when I pushed them in the holes provided on the Swiffer. The terry was just too thick.
While digging through my yarn box I noticed many different shades of crochet cotton. Left overs from dish cloths I made. Hey, I thought, why not crochet some that will fit snug and know what, they worked so much better, wet or dry.
I simply crochet a rectangle and folded it to fit then hand sewed it together.
The new cloth slides right on and washes up right in the washing machine.
These little Swiffer clothes took me all of a half hour to make and that was not sitting still. I got up at least once to do something else. My kind of craft, FAST!
Just about everyone I know uses a Swiffer to dust their floors. Think this might just be a perfect Xmas gift for them all.
Picture this, a perfect little box wrapped so fine with three or four Swiffer cloths in it!
