Do you like the convenience of Swiffer Wetjet mops but hate the waste generated by the disposable pads? Instructables user bullschmidt figured out that you can make reusable pads out of men's white tube socks. You can usually find cheap socks for sale in packs that bring the cost down to $1 per pair. This means your reusable swiffer pads are $0.50 each which is a better price than you can usually find the disposable pads.
All you need to do to make a sock into a Swiffer pad is lay the sock against the part of the Swiffer where you'd normally attach a pad, then make a small slit in the center of the sock roughly half the length of the Swiffer pad area. Carefully pull the sock around the Swiffer and tie off the end of the sock. Finally, make two small slits for the Swiffer spray nozzles.
You should be able to get several uses out of these replacement pads. When you run out out of Swiffer Wetjet cleaner here's our guide to how to refill the non-reusable bottle. Also if you're only using the Swiffer as a dry mop you can use wax paper instead of Swiffer sheets.
