Reusable Swiffer Duster Cloths Tutorial

Reusable Swiffer Cloth Duster

In today’s world, so many of us are trying to find ways to use less disposable products and create less trash, and saving money while we’re at it never hurts either! Using reusable or natural cleaning products is one way I’ve found it easiest to do so, and today’s project is a great example of that! I made these DIY reusable cloth dusters that fit over a Swiffer duster handle, and they only get better with each use and wash. I’m sharing both a free pattern and video tutorial with you today so you can make some for yourself!

Reusable Swiffer Sweeper Pad Tutorial

reusable swiffer sweeper pad

Like I said earlier, I LOVE cleaning products, but have been trying to be a little GREENER when it comes to some of my favorites. I think my favorite cleaning product ever is the Swiffer Sweeper. I just hate buying the refill cloths for the sweeper all the time, and really wanted something I could wash and use over and over again, like the reusable Swiffer duster that I made. The tricky part was figuring out what would “grab” the crumbs and clean the floor the best. Leave it to a sock to save the day! Using a chenile sock and an old t-shirt, you can have your new (and your last!) Swiffer sweeper cloth in less than 30 minutes!

Face Mask Pattern – 5 Different Ways

How to make a face mask

There’s a lot of info coming at us recently, between the news, social media, school emails (sooo many school emails), and in the sewing world, a big topic has been about how to make a face mask due to the shortages many areas are currently experiencing. I originally signed up to help with the 100 Million Masks project, but amazingly a local company stepped up to take them all on in our area. I want to help how I can (but also only if it’s actually needed, which I’ll share more about below), but have also felt a bit frozen with the decisions of what face mask pattern I should even be using.

With the thought that maybe I wasn’t alone in needing some direction, I decided to choose 5 different face mask patterns to make, each unique from the others, so I could share my thoughts and help you if you find yourself also learning how to make a face mask. [Read more…]

A Thought…

I just realized the other day that it’s almost been a year since we did Go Green Month at Sew Much Ado!  I really enjoyed the whole month of “Green,” and was thinking that it might be fun to do it again this March.  For those of you who don’t know, during Go Green Month we focused entirely on tutorials, tips, and ideas that encouraged us to take small steps toward a more environmentally friendly life.  For me personally, I wanted to focus on using less and reusing more, and there are some things that I adopted during that month that have made a nice difference in my life (like the reusable swiffer duster cloths – I use them all the time still and love them!).  We had refashioning projects, recipes such as homemade laundry soap, and some fun giveaways.  I feel like we covered a lot of topics last year, but there are so many more that I think we could explore this year!  

What do you think?  Would you enjoy it?  Do you have any ideas of what you would like to see?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!
