Now, for a Thrifty Thursday (yes, I know it's actually Wednesday but I try not to get bogged down by technicalities) update.
If you have hard floors anywhere in your house then you probably own a Swiffer or some kind of Swiffer equivalent. If you don't, you should, they are handy little things to have around. Of course, if you have one of these then you probably also realize that buying the replacement pads can start to get a bit expensive. I bought a 12 pack for $4 on sale yesterday and while that sounds like a lot they don't last as long as I would like. The answer: Make your own Swiffer cover!
I made this one for my Swiffer Wetjet and it works for dry dusting and wet mopping.
I crocheted this in half double crochet (hdc), back loop only to produce nice dust catching ridges. You can check out the pattern here.
The little straps hold the pad onto the mop and are stretchy enough to allow for easy removal.
So when you are done and your cover is dirty, instead of throwing it and your moeny away, you pop it into the laundry and then reuse it.
