Swiffer tip...short and sweet!

This is probably old news to many of you, but I wanted to share, just in case you haven't heard....


You don't have to buy those boxes of swiffer refills!  My friend, Debbie J., at Homemaking Dreams, mentioned her floor cleaning tools in a recent post.  I started searching on google for the best home made swiffer pad.  


Yep, a chenille sock. I have several of these in my sock drawer and I never wear them. (too hot for my feet) The website that I used says you can buy these at the dollar store for ....yes... $1 a pair.  Anyway, I slid it over my swiffer mop, cut a slit in the back to make the handle stand up again....


And OMG! look!! I thought my floors were pretty clean this morning before I swiffered.   (this is embarrassing... ha ha)  

So, yes....here's to my new swiffer socks! Throw them in the washer and ready to use again!  

(I like the wet mop pads too....now to find a homemade cleaner to try with my new sock pads!)

LOL!! I use to get grossed out myself doing our floors in the condo(SanDiego). They always looked clean. Swiffers don't lie, sadly for us;-)
