I love my Swiffer, but hate the cost of the cloths. My sister uses a high
quality paper towel that she sprays with a light mist of Endust for
Electronics. I tried that, but it just didn't do the job as well as the
I got a package of microfiber cloths at Costco. They work very well. A
package of sixteen cloths (16 x16) is $9.99 and are sold in the automotive
isle. They fit great on my Swiffer Max mop. The cloths hold the dust and
pet hair as well as the Swiffer cloths and can be rinsed or wash and used
over and over. They can also be used wet for general cleaning - often
without any detergent.
I use pieces of old towels on my Swiffer mop and they work well for small
jobs that require wet mopping. Towels don't attract and hold dust, so you
can't use them dry for dusting. The microfiber cloth clings to the dust
just like the electrostatic Swiffer cloths.
I'm going to try those microfiber towels described by Vox. For the past
five years or so, I've been using surgical towels, on a Swiffer Max
--laundered without fabric softener. The towels are very durable and
their electrostatic holding power is really fascinating. The microfiber
towels will be far lighter.
I'm looking for a stronger handle option.
