Sew a reusable pad out of old t-shirts and a wool blanket for your Swiffer-type mop.
I do not like using disposable cleaning products. I cloth diaper my kids and I use washcloths instead of paper towels. But my Swiffer mop is so convenient! It seemed to me that it was time to stop using disposable mop pads. It will save the environment and save money.
I decided to make this pad out of discarded clothes and a wool blanket I never use because I did not want to throw them away either. The greatest part about this project is that anyone can do it. It does not need to look pretty. You're going to use it to clean your floor, you know?
Cleaning with this pad takes a little more elbow grease than the disposable pads but it cleans great. I recommend making at least two so you have a clean one while the other is in the laundry.
