I'm not a fan of disposable cleaning wipes. They score major points for convenience factor, but not so much for eco-friendly factor, or cost-per-use factor. When we put our new hardwood floors in last summer, I dug my Swiffer back out of the basement along with a partial box of the pad/cover thingys that came with it. I was kind of terrified by the fact that the scent in the dry pads was still as strong as the day I bought them. I didn't feel like it was something I wanted to be pushing around my new floors, or introducing to my dogs' digestive systems. So I made my own. It doesn't have any chemicals in it, it works just as well (if not even better) at trapping dust and dog hair, and I can use it over and over again because it's completely machine washable.
Here's what you need to make your own:
~A microfiber towel (I've also made one with fleece, and it works fine also).
~An old t-shirt (any fabric that has a lot of stretch in at least one direction will do).
~Scissors or a cutting mat and rotary cutting wheel.
~Basic sewing machine
~About 15 minutes
Have a wicked fun time using your new eco-friendlier Swiffer cover!
