    We have dogs, and I wouldn't want to wash them and reuse with the hairs that never come out though. So I have to find something cheap to use and throw away, or keep buying the pads from swiffer. Any suggestions?

    I love my Swiffer. But my son bought a "Windex Outdoor" much like the swiffer except the pads are larger and made of lightly padded cloth. Cleaning my front porch (painted concrete) was always nearly impossible and a horrible job before I used the Windex

    I've seen some homemade on Etsy - crocheted or knitted. They were a little bit expensive so I decided to find the pattern and make my own. I promptly forgot about this project less than a minute after deciding that, of course. So, I will use this tip

    I've been doing this for years with a pack of a dozen wash cloths. They're great for dusting the floors and washing them too and they fit the swiffer perfectly.

    I didn't have any "spare" fabric that was durable enough for this so I bought a pk of 2 microfiber cloths at Dollar Tree to do the job. I also have made my own "concoction" in a spray bottle to use on the kitchen & bathroom floors (linoleum). That saves
