OMG, Swiffer's are washable !! Not garden related, but pretty exciting.

Yes, that's right, they are. Swiffer's are washable. Just throw them into the wash with your laundry, flatten them out and let them air dry. Not only are they washable, but they work better after washing. They fringe out more and get fluffy which makes more dusting surface and they actually pick up more dust.

Here is a Swiffer before:


And here is a Swiffer after washing.

I had already decided to create a pattern and sew some fabric Swiffer's in the winter that would be washable and reusable as well as being a much more environmentally friendly material. {Which is actually what initially got me thinking.....what would happen if I put one in the washer?} We go through a lot of these in the store so I will be thrilled to see the end of these altogether. I will share my pattern when I make it.
