p.s. for people using leftover fleece scraps to make a duster...since it's made from polyester, you can rub it against another piece of polyester before you start dusting, and build up static...this could help it to dust as well as the purchased refills.

Seeing yours makes me wonder if I would have ever thought of this! I really like the idea of making refills for my Grab-it brand dust mop [FYI-this brand has the longest handle], and a purchased pattern really isn't necessary. Buying the refills is a drag, but it sure is nice to just throw that dirty, hairy thing away. I'll make one just to see if it's not too disgusting to launder, then decide for sure, lol. If a person could get the fabric cheap enough, or use leftover scraps, we could make our own disposable ones for the floor, and wash the furniture dusters [they're less disgusting]. Thanks for the review...and for pushing the start button on my brain! :)

Do these work as well as the disposable ones?

Excellent! I'm like you, I love the product but hate the cost and waste of the refills. Thanks for the review and the info.

What a great idea! I had used regular micro-fiber clothes on my plain swiffer, but I love this idea and yours look great!

Wonderful idea. Check out the pattern website, which has mop covers and lots of baby things.

Terrific idea! I hate spending money on cleaning supplies like these--it seems to be such a waste.
