Homemade Swiffer Cloths
Posted July 27, 2009on:
This morning I turned the cut-off legs of a pair of ratty pants-turned-shorts into cloths for my Swiffer Sweeper. I feel very much like a Suzy Homemake right now. I’ve been feeling like it’s a little ridiculous to buy boxes of cloths simply because of the brand name (as much as I love the Swiffer concept!) and convenience. Then, yesterday we had a conversation about how we needed to clean the dust from the hard-to-reach spots in our house–under the china hutch that weights a ton and I’m not strong enough to help move, for example. Thus was born the motivation to take the leftovers from a pair of Scott’s pants-turned-shorts and cut them down to fit on the end of my Swiffer. No, I am not that clever for using old clothing for cleaning purposes; I realize this is something that has been done since the dawn of time. But I’m a tad proud anyway.
P.S. I cleaned under the china hutch right away.
