Secrets of Success

Ecological Swiffer Mop Head




I like to crochet so I crocheted a mop head with peaches and cream thread to fit over the swiffer mop head then I thread elastic through the crocheted mop so it fits over the top of the mop. When I mop I spray the floor with white vinegar and water. Then mop with my homemade mop head.

More Information:

When I'm finished I take off the mop head throw it in the wash and have a clean mop head to start with next time.
I found it more ecological and I like the mop head with the nubs from crocheting cleans better. I use a mix of vinegar and 1/2 c. + 1 gallon water put in spray bottle.
