Websters are great, but how do you wash them.  Here's a way to make one that's very inexpensive and you can throw the dirty part in the washer easily!

(It also works well for cleaning the whiteboard)

Slip it on over the sweeper head, now you can use it for all sort of things like removing cobwebs from the ceilings, or even cleaning a whiteboard!

Is the fabric stretchy? If not, how are you slipping it on the sweeper?

Good question. Yes, it has just enough stretch to get it on there but not so much that it slips off.

Good idea. It can also work as a floor duster.
Very nice!
