Swift Dust Socks

As I was wandering around blogland on the internet highway, I came across a "more complicated that it really should be" post on how to turn discarded/cheap chenille socks into resuable static swiffer cloths.  Wanting to recreate those socks, my first stop was of course Biglots and as luck would have it, they were selling what I can only think was their christmas stock chenille socks at a really low price.  So I managed to score 3 pairs at $3....$1 a sock!


BUT instead of a laborious cutting and sewing session...I simply pulled the ever-so-stretchy sock over the swiffer base and voila! One instant machine washable swiffer static cloth!

    1. Appreciate this is a late reply but it is for dusting hard floors and surfaces. The sock material generates a tiny amount of static electricity that helps keep the dust on the sock :)

  7. Great idea for Swiffer duster sheets too. They can be replaced with socks or beter, sew a seam or two down the length of the sock and slip on the handle...or just slip them on your hands and wipe!
