Like probably 90% of America, I own a swiffer. I’m not sure if I bought it myself, or if it just appeared in our house the day we moved in, sent by the mythical swiffer fairy.
Either way. I own one. And you can bet I am not going to use those waste-of-money disposable swiffer pads. For one thing, if I don’t use paper to catch my kids’ poo, I can certainly handle not using paper to clean my floors. I’m sure there are cuter, or easier to use, or just dang more efficient resuable swiffer pads out there, but that’s not how I roll.
Go upstairs to your cloth diaper stash (I know you have one, even if you don’t have any kids in diapers currently) and grab a handful of prefolds. The smaller the better. In fact, if you have preemie prefolds, use those.
Wrap them around the swiffer and jam the fabric into the holes on the top. It’ll be a tight squeeze, but it will work.
Then go to town. Clean those floors until they shine. (Preferably, you’re using homemade cleaner to do this – this formula is what I use, even for hardwoods.).
When you’re done, just throw the dirty diaper in the laundry!
