Easy Reusable Swiffer Cloths

Did you know that you can use a microfiber towel as a Swiffer cover?  It works really well and is very easy to do.  Microfiber towels can be found in the auto section of your local store and cost about $1 each.  They make great dusting cloths too.

Fold the cloth in half:

Tuck the cloth into each of the four slots on the Swiffer:

Get to work Swiffering!  


Remove two pieces of the handle to make the Swiffer just the right size for kids.  (If you have never used one before, the handle extensions easily snap on and off so this is very simple to do.)  My girls both love Swiffering for me.

Much of our house is wood flooring, ... and we have a dog, ... and I don't clean enough ... as you can clearly see...

Shake the dust into the trash can and toss your Swiffer cloth into the wash.  If you have more cleaning to do, simply fold the cloth dusty side in and reattach it.

I'm going to try and follow these instructions (or these) to make a cover for our little hand held Swiffer duster.  Do you think I could get away with giving my girls each a Swiffer duster for Christmas?  Maybe if I made the covers hot pink?  Hmm....
