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.

I want to make my own rag mop as the traditional store ones fall apart after I've used them for a month, especially if I bleach them.

I have heard about using those mop heads that have a clamp that holds the mop in place. It was recommended to put rags in the clamp (old tee shirt, towels, etc. ) rather than a traditional mop head. It sounds like it would work.
