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).
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
Hdc: Half double crochet
Sc: single crochet
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.
