Crochet Swiffer Pad *Pattern*

I don't know about you but my swiffer is not like the ones on the TV commercials. Mine sits alone and sings with the duster in the closet. Why? Because I refuse to buy those awfully expensive swiffer pads. I'd rather just use my broom to sweep up the dust.

UNTIL NOW!

I made me a nice little swiffer pad for my swiffer. Its soft and gentle on my hardwood floors but yet has a little more rubbing power than those papery swiffer brands. Dont worry about not haveing the "static power". The dust bunnies stick to this just fine.


I used 100% cotton, but you can use any yarn I assume. (cotton will shrink some).

Pin It
When it gets dirty, I can just toss it in the washer. It works wet too! I can spray my Stanley Steemer wood cleaner on my floor (thats some good stuff by the way) and wah-lah!  I can swiff and mop with this handy little thing and use it over and over, saving me money.

Crochet Swiffer Pad

H hook

Abbreviations:
Hdc: Half double crochet
Sc: single crochet
Ch: Chain


Make a ch 15 inches long (it was 57 chs for me)

Row 1: Hdc in second Ch from hook. Hdc remaining stitches. Ch1 turn.
Row 2: Hdc in each stitch across. Ch1, turn.
             Repeat until your piece is 5 inches tall. (I used my swiffer to measure).

Fold over each end by 2 1/2 inches and Sc all the way around the pad.

All Done!

  3. This is so brilliant! Seriously, easy to make, and I imagine it's be perfect. I have crochet wash clothes and they are my favorite. My Swiffer has just been sitting in the closet not being used for a LONG time. I am totally going to whip this up! Thanks for the pattern!

  4. Wow! I love this. I have been wanting a Swiffer but it always just seemed too expensive to be constantly replacing the pads. Excellent idea :) Thanks for stopping by my blog AMomInTheMaking.com because that's how I found your blog
