Use The Other Side Of Swiffer Pads

When I use the disposable Swiffer type cleaning cloths, I flip them over to use the clean side before tossing them in the trash. This works well with the dry dust mop cloths. It doubles the use of each cloth. The wet ones do OK, but not as well. They seem to tear and pull out of the base when flipped.

Thrifty? Disposable? Use a rewashable duster.

You can also shake them outside & then toss them in the wash. I have not bought new swiffer pads in years. As far as wet pads, I use old tube socks, cut lengthwise, tuck them in the holes terry side out. They work great & can be washed & used again as well.

God Bless
