DIY Reusable Mop Pads: The Eco-Friendly Alternative to Disposable Pads
Previously, I shared how to make a reusable cloth for a dry floor sweeper. Believe me, those cloths certainly come in handy! What if you have a wet floor sweeper? Well, we can make those, too! Let me show you how to make a reusable pad for a wet floor sweeper saving tons of money!
- 1 Microfiber cloth (mine measures 11″ x 12″)
- 2 pieces of hook and loop tape – the “fuzzy” side, 12″ long x 1″ wide (<– affiliate link!)
- Contrasting thread
Fold the microfiber cloth in half with the 12″ side as the length. Stitch around the outside edges of the microfiber cloth to secure the halves together.
Position one strip of the hook tape approximately 1/2″ from one long edge and sew in place. (I used two pieces at each end because my hook tape was narrow.) Position the other strip of the hook tape on the opposite end, 1/2″ away from the edge and sew in place.
Place the cloth on the end of the wet floor sweeper, securing the hook and loop tape, and mop away! Ok, that doesn’t sound like fun at all but look at it this way, you are saving money while doing something everyone totally loathes! Win, win, right? Or not… But still – at least these are washable and can be reused!
The reusable pads are washable plus the microfiber cloths can be found in a wide variety of colors. They are relatively inexpensive and several can be made in a matter of hours! Have any questions about the tutorial on how to make a reusable pad for a wet floor sweeper? Leave a comment below!
