I needed some reusable pads for our Swiffer and found these microfiber cloths in 2-packs at the Dollar Store. I added some snaps to the ends to hold them on, although I think the velcro on the Swiffer would do it all by itself (or you could safety pin it on). It did the trick, although I think the velcro will probably kill the cloths pretty quick so I may have to think of a way around that. I also think extra “padding” to the cloth would be nice. I needed something fast though and I’m feeling lazy. If this doesn’t work out, I can always sew extra padding on pretty easily.
