Our husband really enjoys using the Swiffer mop and dusters - hooray! But refills (even the non-Swiffer brand drug store versions) are expensive. And, throwing the dusters and mop pads in the garbage when we're done doesn't sit well with trying to be earth-friendly. So we went on the hunt for ideas to make our own and found these two super-simple tutorials.
Karin of DominoPads gives instructions for making reusable Swiffer mop pads. If you use the green handled Swiffer you don't needle a needle or thread at all and pads for the purple-handled one only require a few stitches.
Finally, a Re-Nest reader suggests using Sham-Wow cloths as Swiffer pad replacements.
Do you have any other ideas or tutorials to share? We'd love to keep encouraging our husband's Swiffer habit!
