Make Your Own Swiffer Dusters

Let me take a moment to tell you that I love my swiffer duster. I don't, however, love the expense of buying the swiffer refills. If you know much about fleece, then you know it loves to grab lint, dog fur, dust, you name it. That's why fleece is perfect for this project. If you don't have old fleece clothes to upcycle, you can just use fleece scraps. It doesn't take a lot of fleece or a lot of time to make these.
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy

First, I measured a real swiffer duster. It measures approximate 4"x7". I cut my fleece into 4 - 4"x7" rectangles.
Take 2 rectangles and lay them on top of one another wrong sides together. Some fleece is hard to tell which side is right and which is wrong but these pants had an obvious right side.

Sew a line straight down the middle long ways, starting and stopping about 1/2" from the edge of the fabric.

Next sew a straight line parallel to the center line about 3/4"-1" from the center. Repeat this step in the other side of the center line. You should end up with 3 straight lines sewn 3/4"-1" apart running the length of the 2 rectangles. Confused yet? The photos should help.

Using your scissors or rotary cutter, cut every half inch down the sides of these 2 rectangles coming close to the outer line of stitching but do not cut the stitches.

    Fleece works great for making your own swiffer-type used with the floor style design :-) Been doing it for years :-)

    I think I would make the fleece a little wider.....but this is a great idea.......I need some new ones and looking at the prices at the store the other day I thought to myself there has to be a better way to do this - and here they are.......also
