Casa Verde: Musty Tees For Dusty Needs

Got dust? No matter how often I vacuum, it never fails when I sit on my carpets or rugs, my pants always pick up the dregs on the floor. While Swiffers and other cleaning products do a fab job of sweeping up dust bunnies and capturing the thin layers on the dressers and shelves, it seems my threadbare clothes could potentially equal their task. If they can find lint on a fresh floor, they could probably grasp other messes. Instead of tossing sheaths into the trash can weekly, I decided to turn my rags into riches by employing them as my dust buster.

I simply cut the old rags into squares and popped them onto my Swiffer stick. Old workout clothes happen to pick up the most dust. If you don't have a Swiffer, you could simply use a square mop and rubberband. Attach the rag to the bottom and head into the dust. When the shirt has done its work, you can turn it inside out and use the other side. You can kiss those dust bunnies goodbye and throw those rags into the washer for many future uses!

great the swiffer, but hate the waste...we also use cheap dollar store dust cloths, which seem to fit perfectly and are washable

Funny, as I am bringing pajamas to the hamper, I always use them to wipe down the dresser and end tables in our bedroom (which are ALWAYS so dusty because they are dark wood)...Since I'm washing the clothes anyway, who cares if I get a layer of dust on them first.
