Please note If you have a newer Swiffer, it might be a slightly different size (a bit longer and wider). Just add more stitches to the foundation chain (in multiples of 2) and work a few more looped row repeats to accommodate the larger size. It’s a swiffer cover, it’s okay to fudge it a little!

I’ve always hated buying refills for my Swiffer sweeper—even though I used both sides of the cloth, it just seemed silly to throw them away. And truthfully, it had been languishing in my closet because I have no refills, so I thought I would come up with a reusable option for Swiffer (and like-minded) sweepers. I came up with this crocheted sock, which, as the sort-of gross photo proves, really works! It also proves that I need to dust more often. Sorry, Mom! This “sock” is fun and quick to crochet, easy to complete with scraps, and a great use for acrylic yarns, since they tend to create static that makes dust and hair cling. Once you’re done dusting, you can brush the excess dirt and dust into the trash bin (really, it’s okay to touch dirt!) and then throw the sock in the washer and dryer with your other laundry.
