Making a Rag Mop

Does anybody know how to make a rag mop? I have a lot of towels that have seen better days that I don't want to use in my (new) bathroom. They are still in reasonable condition if rather dingy looking but seems a pity to toss them or use them as floor cloths. A rag mop would be ideal as they would be put to good use.

tumpy, wat a brill idea! i was thinking on the lines of cutting the towels in strips and attaching them somehow to a broomstick or watever. this way, i dont have to cut them up into strips and its so easy. less chance of fraying and more important, less time wasted! thanks for your suggestion.

Wonderful!! I have a bag of torn towels my hubby sometimes uses for rags and am in need of a new mop! I am thinking of tearing into strips and putting on the old mop head halved and weaving in 1 strip to hold all into place, will let you know how it goes!! Thanx for sparkling my imagination!

Once upon a time you could buy a mop frame for using rags or a string head. I don't know if you can still find them but I am still using mine. Maybe janitorial suppliers would have them.

You could donate those old towels to your local animal shelter. They always need this type of stuff for the animals.
