I’ve been meaning to make reusable pads for my Swiffer WetJet for a while. I finally ran out of disposables and excuses. Luckily these are simple and quick to make. I used a microfiber cloth, but I’m sure fleece would do.
The following measurements worked well for the fabric I was using, but you may have to make adjustments depending on the thickness of your fabric. Cut one piece of fabric 5 1/2″ by 12″ for the bottom layer. Cut two pieces of fabric 6 1/2″ x 3″ for the top.
Pin the top pieces to the longest sides of the bottom layer. You’re leaving the shorter sides open for now. Using a 1/2″ seam allowance, only sew the sides where you see the pins.
Now lay your piece down and pin in the very middle. Do this for both sides.
When you sew the side closed you’re going to start sewing from the middle where you pinned and work your way out.
Finish the seam by doing this in the opposite direction.
Repeat on the other open side. Once you’re finished on the sewing machine carefully clip the corners to remove some of the bulk.
Slide it on your Swiffer WetJet and you’re ready to clean! I love how nicely the microfiber cleans the floor. When I was done I just threw it in the washing machine and it is set to go for next time.
