DIY Clean: Reusable Swiffer Dusters

I try to be as Earth-friendly as possible. Our household loves recycling and repurposing when we can. One of the ways I like to "recycle" is by making my own Swiffer dusting cloths. 
Here is how I did it.

Step 1: Buy a pack of microfiber cloths (6pk/$9)

Step 2: Use an old Swiffer dusting cloth as your template.
If you don't have any, just place the Swiffer deck as your template and add about 1.5" to each side to allow the cloth to be pushed into the "teeth."                                                 

Step 3: Cut your microfiber cloth to fit, snap into deck and start dusting your hardwoods or tile floors!

Now you have a reusable and washable dusting cloth that is an inexpensive and "green" way to clean.

Happy cleaning,


  1. i love this idea...those store bought ones get expensive, then i end up not using the mop all together...thanks for the tips!
