It worked. We know fleece washes, so it is a “green” duster that can be used and then washed, time after time. Don’t use fabric softener, in the w...
Personally, I’m not crazy about stuff, that’s used once, for cleaning, then, it’s thrown away. To me it is an extra expense, that isn’t necessary. I have had this Swifter handle for years, unused because I refuse to buy more disposable covers. Then I came across a picture on pintrest, of a reusable cover someone has created to sale. If you don’t want to make your own, go here http://www.etsy.com/listing/56270051/washable-hand-duster-refill-for-swiffer to buy some from an Etsy shop. They would love your business. Anyway, I have a hard time buying something I can make myself, so here is my attempt to show you “How to Make “Green” Swifter Duster Covers”.
Anti pill fleece (your choice of color, I will use the blue I already have)
Here is a picture of the pattern I created with the detentions I used. I still haven’t quite earned the computer skills to make some things easy, although those skills are slowly, but surely coming. Use your paper and pencil to recreate the pattern. Use the paper scissors to cut out the pattern.
Trace the outer most line of your pattern on your fleece with a marker.
Draw a straight line down the middle and then,
create the box which will be the place that the handle legs will reside.
Put 4 layers of fleece on top of each other and
cut them all out (at the same time) with the sewing scissors.
Go to the sewing machine and sew down the middle of the 4 layers. Then sew around 3 of the four sides of the box, the two long sides and the short side at the rounded top end. Trim away all your thread ends. Make it neat.
