I've been trying to get the kids to dust their rooms. And when ever they see dust in the house. How writting dust me doesn't help they need to do something constructive about it. Problem is they go through those swiffer duster refills like I have a tree growing them in the back yard :(
So I decided to try and figure out how to make them out of fleece. I mean there are a million links for making the mopping pads for the swiffer wet jet and all kinds of crocheted and knitted knitting refills, but it was all too much detail for something so simple .
I made 3 of these this afternoon in less than 30 minutes and quickly dusted with one and threw it in the load of laundry going in. It washed great. I would probably hang them to dry from the wire shelving about the w/d instead of drying them with the clothes and fabric softener sheets. Or drying with the towels ( no dryer sheets - not good for the nap- did you now that?) Are you ready to try???? Here's what I did:
Take 4 or more 6" squares of polar fleece. Draw a line down the center of one of the squares. Then draw another line on both sides of center line 3/4" apart.Stack all squares one on top of each other neatly. Sew from top to bottom on all 3 lines.
Insert the wand thingy and clip amost to sewn seams every 1/2"
It works great! Yippee!!!!!
