Learn how to make DIY reusable sweeper pads for a sweeper or dust mop. Polyester fabric will pick up all the dust and debris on hard floors.
To encourage myself and my kids to do our sweeping chore, I got a sweeper/dry mop to make it feel fun.
– 1/2 yard Polyester fabric like double brushed poly – Fabric scissors or rotary blade and cutting mat – Sewing machine or serger
Cut out as many as you think you’ll need or use your half yard of fabric. I cut out 5 for now.
Finish the edges of each rectangle with either a sewing machine and a zigzag stitch or a serger.
The zigzag stitch will tunnel the fabric slightly and create almost like a rolled edge, but it will help the reusable pad last longer than leaving a raw edge.
If your sweeper has a different design that needs a more exact shape and measurement to work, you can trim your reusable pads down to the right size.
