Swiffer cover

One of my New Years Resolutions is to not just pin things that I like from pinterest but to actually try and make them.


This is my version- PROJECT #1


I cut a micro fiber dish towel and was able to make 3 swiffer covers.  I used the width of the towel as my length and cut 3 pieces 6" tall.  I took each single piece and folded the ends up and sewed the fabric straight across.  I used a zig zag stitch because the edges on top and bottom were raw edges. 



Now just slide your swiffer mop inside on each edge.  They work like a charm.  Now I can just throw them in the washer and dryer and reuse them.  Much much cheaper than buying the refills.

Oops, I hit enter too soon! I meant to say that this is so clever and I love the idea to actually do the things you pin and not just pin them!
