Recycle Socks for Swiffer Pads

I have been recycling my hubby's old socks into swiffer pads. I cut the end of of both ends of the sock and a cut down one side of the sock between the two cut ends, Then I fit it over the swiffer and then sometimes I sew the ends shut, sometimes I don't. When they get old, I just throw them away.

Hi there! I'm totally addicted to my Swifter Wet Jet but I agree wayyy too costly. Love the sock idea, but if you ladies still want to splurge, at my local dollar store, they now have a Family Dollar brand. So much cheaper! When my boyfriend found them even he was excited. ha ha These can be used both sides. I am goin to try the sock idea. I refill the empty Swifter bottle with a little Simple Green and water, works great!
