Mop Sheet Substitute

Instead of buying expensive wet sheets for Swiffer-style mops, cut up old tee-shirts into same size pieces and tuck into the mop head and use with regular floor cleaners. They can be laundered and reused.

    I've been doing that too, but I find 100% cotton works best and so many have polyester in, so now that I double check when shopping. Same goes for old towels % washcloths.
