DIY Swiffer Dusters

For a while now I haven’t purchased replacement dusters for my Swiffer Duster.  I love how they work, but I’ve been trying to cut costs.  I have been using old microfiber diaper inserts to trap the dust in my house…on those rare occasions when I actually dust…which is usually when we are having company.

When I saw a tutorial on Pinterest for DIY Swiffer Dusters from Sew Much Ado, I immediately pulled out the sewing machine DIY Swiffer Dusters& fabric scraps to get started.  Well, not quite immediately, but as soon as breakfast was almost over.

They were very easy to make, and I just used old receiving blankets that had been placed into the “upcycle” fabric bag.  I wasn’t very exact in my measurements or neat in my cutting…they are just dusters!  I sewed up 3 of them during a small portion of the kids’ naptime {like after I made cream of chicken soup, washed the dishes from all day, and made a pot of tea}.  The clipping took me longer than the actual sewing!

My kids were very enthusiastic about the new dusters.  Elaine usually gets to “help” me dust.  {Please read the last sentence as “Elaine walks around with a duster and pretends that she is doing Mommy work.”  I always have to fix her area when she’s not looking!}  Nolan couldn’t wait for me to put my duster down so that he could join in the fun!  He “swiffered” the floor, the rug, the trash can…even a tomato!

Nolan is a litlte blurry.  He is normally too fast for my camera shutter…but today he was especially blurry because he was busy swiffering.

I haven’t washed and dried these yet to get them soft and fluffy, but they still worked great!  Another great Pinterest project!
