I originally posted this tutorial on flickr 2 and a half years ago, and it's still my most viewed photo ever, so I thought it was worth blogging here. I love swiffer dusters, so I made this up when I got sick of buying new refills all the time. These are washable and reusable til the cows come home, (I'm still using the original ones I made) and really easy to make, so be a little more green today and make a some for yourself. I've made them with fleece, but Microfiber seems to work best, it really grabs the dust. You can usually finds sheets of it in the car cleaning section. You can also easily make swiffer mop covers too, by just measuring a rectangle about twice as long as the mop, folding over the ends to fit it and sewing them in place.
Feel free to share this pattern! (If you link back to me here while you're at it, that would be great!) Why buy something over and over when you can easily make something reusable? Every little thing we can do to reduce waste is worth it. :)
