Reusable Crochet Mop Pads Actually Work Better Than The Originals

When the Swiffer Sweeper came out in 1999, it was a massive game changer to cleaning. You could sweep up dust off your floors and collect it all at once without having to use a dust pan! It was pure innovation and a major time-saving cleaning product.

However, there's no doubt the replacement refills and pads can be quite pricey, let alone create a ton of waste.

If you or someone you know crochets, you can make reusable pads that actually work even better!

You may have never thought of looking into reusable pads for your Swiffer, but if you can use reusable cloths for cleaning, then it totally makes sense.
