Clever idea! We use the swiffer a lot around t his house, and this might make it more reasonable to use!
I had heard of other people using towels, and figured I’d give it a try. But the only towels I could find when I was out were $2-3 a pop, plus I had to buy velco. AND I don’t have a sewing machine, so it would be a lot of annoying hand stitching. So I found another great source for the pads…
Specifically, mens, calf height tube socks. They were $6 for 6 pairs.. so 50 cents a pad! These were Hanes – you could probably find them cheaper. With some careful cutting of the socks, you can make a cheap, washable pads for your swiffer.
Remove the scrubber pad (optional)
Make the first cut
Make a short cut in the middle of the swiffer, about 1/2 the size the swiffer. Err on the short side. You can always make it longer, but we want the sock to be snug!
Slide the sock on
Cut some eyes!
If the socks are too thin, you could double them up to get a thicker pad.
