I headed to Target (where we lost a shoe, hers not mine) and found a 12 pack of microfiber towels in the car department on sale for $5.49, regularly $9.99!!!
I decided that I would use six for the Swiffer Mop and six for the Swiffer Vac.
For the Swiffer Mop pads I folded the towel in half and used a generous seam allowance. I left a 3 inch opening to turn the cloth right side out.
Turn right sides out, trim your seam allowance and poke your corners. Then I top stitched around the whole thing and sewed some lines down the middle to keep it from moving.
For the Swiffer Vac I traced a pad I already had. I placed it on the towel and added a 1 inch seam allowance.
I then folded all four edges over 1/4 inch and then another 1/4 and sewed. That's it!
Remember not to use fabric softener when drying these. It makes the "static" properties in the microfiber disappear. Also, don't iron them :):):) I figured up the cost and what I would save once I start making my own solution. This saves about $350 a year!!!
Just for fun, here's some pictures from Easter.
It was rainy here so we had an Egg Hunter wardrobe change :)
And I'm on my second batch of homemade yogurt and granola. It's just as good as the first time, mmmmmm mmmmmm!
