If you are one of those people who love the idea of a Swiffer but hate spending the money on the throw away pads, here is an idea for you. DIY Swiffer Pads that you can make using chenille socks. Just pull it over where the Swiffer pad would go. They work great plus you can throw it in the washing machine when you are done and use it over and over again. Many dollar stores sell these types of sock for just a $1, or you can probably find tons on clearance just about anywhere this time of year. I have even seen them at the drugstores for just $1.
Depending on which “Swiffer” broom you have you can either fit one sock over entire area or in my example it worked better to use two, one at each end. Either way, you can now use the convenience of a Swiffer broom without the cost of the of a new pad every time you want to use it. How sweet is that!
And then what “solution” do u use . I buy the swiffer wet and go trhu a box a month, because i use 1 almost everyday?
What a neat idea! In a pinch, I have also used a bounty paper towel and it works like a charm! Can’t wait to try this!
Thanks for the amazing idea! We had stopped using our Swiffer because we were tired of paying for the pads – opting for our steam mop instead. Now we can use the Swiffer again to quickly pick up those sticky spots that seem to follow small children around. Plus my wife has a pair or two of these socks that were too worn out to wear but we had been saving for some reason…now we know why!
